Digital Cinema Content Distribution: Understanding Interop and the SMPTE Digital Cinema Package (DCP)

Tuesday, 11 August 2015
1:00 PM Eastern /10:00 AM Pacific / 5:00 PM UTC

Few will argue that effective distribution of digital cinema content is of vital importance. The process for doing this has evolved significantly over the years.

During this SMPTE Standards Update webcast, guest speaker Jim Whittlesey, will explain the function and technical parameters associated with a Digital Cinema Package (DCP) and a Composition PlayList (CPL). Both are key to understanding how digital cinema content is distributed, how it is effectively managed and then played back in a theoretical environment.

Discussion will also detail the differences, down to the file level, between an Interop DCP and a SMPTE-DCP. In addition, how to determine if a DCP is an Interop or SMPTE-DCP will be covered.
