In this SMPTE Standards webcast, our speakers focus on both the technical and business aspects of the ratified SMPTE Digital Cinema Package (DCP) format. The SMPTE DCP allows implementers and users to achieve the ability to support and exhibit HDR, HFR imagery,  immersive audio,  and automation within an auditoria environment by leveraging the enriched metadata held within a composition. It also aids future advancements in the medium by providing a solid and secure foundation to which people can extend existing technologies and build new ones, truly allowing for the ultimate cinematic experience every time.
