easyDCP Player 3.4.5

easyDCP Player is a JPEG2000 decoding software that was created for the use of post production facilities and digital cinema production. It allows to playback DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) without specific cinema equipment on a PC or MAC.

A sufficient CPU or GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) can accelerate the decoding and provide real-time playback of 2k DCPs of JPEG2000 sequences.

easyDCP products are constantly being improved by Fraunhofer IIS to keep up with the standards and technical frameworks of digital cinema. With Fraunhofer IIS represented in the SMPTE Board of Governors, users of easyDCP software have the certainty to always work compliant with D-Cinema standards.

Technical Service and Support

Additional services like software updates, software migration, advanced certificate services, and technical support by Fraunhofer IIS are included in the service contract. Users will have to extend their initial 6 month service contract and will be notified in time to do so.

For your convenience you can start with an initial service contract of 12 months instead of 6 month.

Without valid service, updates to newer software versions have to be purchased. The  prices depend on how much time has elapsed since the expiry of the service contract.

For additional information on easyDCP service policy please refer to the service extension FAQ.
