VIDEO TRANSFERS

Our team has many years experience working on international releases and are familiar with the nuances of versioning DCPs for multiple languages, retiming video for PAL and NTSC DVD’s, creating English SDH and captions, and many other things difficult for small studios to produce in-house.

DCP MASTERING

The DCP, aka Digital Cinema Package, has become the dominant theatrical distribution format since the transition away from 35mm. If you want to exhibit your film in festivals, theaters, or have an archival copy that will work for many years to come, DCP is the solution for you. Tape-based formats such as HDCAM and Digibeta are quickly falling out of use by many festivals and post houses.

Equipped with the latest Dolby CineAsset (formerly Doremi CineAsset) software suite, we offer 2K & 4K DCP mastering at affordable rates.

How does DCP mastering work? DCP mastering involves taking your existing content (typically from a ProRes file), converting it into an XYZ JPEG2000 sequence, wrapping this and any extra reels (logos, intros, etc) into a CPL (composition playlist), adding additional playlists with subtitle files, and loading them to an NTFS or EXT-formatted hard drive that can be read by a DCI server.

BLU-RAY AND DVD AUTHORING

Whether you’re a distributor or a filmmaker looking to self-distribute, Blu-ray and DVD authoring is necessary for any physical release of your film. We take your existing materials and turn them into discs with interactive menus, delivered as both BDCMF (for Blu-ray) and DDP (for DVD) replication-ready files, and playable discs for duplication.

VIDEO TRANSFERS

All video tapes deteriorate with age. Digitizing your old video tapes is imperative to the long-term survival of your footage. We can convert your old tapes to ProRes, DVD, or other formats upon request. DCP to ProRes conversions are also available. Prices may vary depending on the quantity and age of your tapes/discs. These services are only intended to archive content for which you have exclusive rights.
