Digital Leader and DPROVE

These products are both derived from SMPTE RP 428-6:2009.

DPROVE is an acronym for Digital PROjection VErifier, a set of D-Cinema Packages (DCPs) primarily intended for use in theaters as a check of digital projector performance, alignment, and picture-sound synchronization.

The Digital Leader is intended primarily for use by post production facilities and allows the addition of leaders and/or footers to D-Cinema Distribution Master (DCDM) reels, prior to encoding and encryption, for use in quality check.

For details on both products see the Flyer and Order Form
