DCP 101: Explaining and Creating Digital Cinema Packages


Brian Quandt, a leading industry expert in the area of compression, delivery formats, as well as contemporary cloud based post-productions workflows, in concert with Jeanette DePatie an accomplished speaker, Producers Guild National Board member, and professional tech-splainer join forces in order to help us all understand the highly successful film delivery format known as a Digital Cinema Package (DCP). The format of the discussion is light and entertaining but with a goal to provide enough technical background to allow you to continue your learning with a good level of confidence. A future discussion will focus on the how IMF’s (the new TV delivery format) shares much in common with DCP’s, which is no coincidence.
