DCP testing in own facility?
by Justin Williams on Apr 16, 2012 at 6:01:52 pm
Hoping to get some help on how to test DCP conversions. My post facility is looking into DCP compression programs (Wraptor, Qube master, etc.) so we can make them in house for festivals. However, in order to make sure they come out properly, we'll need to test them. Does anyone know of a program that tests DCP's for quality and compatibility so we can avoid going out of house to test these compressions?
Any help is appreciated, along with recommendations for the proper DCP conversion program.

dcpPlayer from http://www.digitall.net.au is a cheap tool to do inital QC, but really, the ONLY real way to test them right, is to have a full DCI player/projector.
I actually have 3 different vendor DCI players for testing a DCP on to make absolutely sure its fine and no problem occur in the field.
That how the Technicolor and Deluxe do it.
Can you imagine the blow back if you sent out hundreds of copies and 20-50% did not work for some reason...
