Delivering Digital Film Reels Since 2008

The easyDCP software suite has enabled an easy Digital Cinema workflow using standard PCs

For almost a century it was sufficient to use a film roll, a projector, and a white wall or sheet of linen to display movie content at any time everywhere in the world. That seemed to be over – when digital became the new magic code for cinema at 2000.

The intention of the team of Heiko Sparenberg and Siegfried Foessel at Fraunhofer IIS was to keep everywhere, anytime, and almost on any cinema device for screening movie content also in the digital age. Working on behalf of the Digital Cinema Initiatives for technical specifications and a reliable test plan for digital cinema, they came up with the proposal of creating a unique universal format – the digital cinema package DCP as digital pendant for the film reel.

But – on the way to make digital cinema a common reality – that was only step one. Step two was to create tools, loyal to the DCI specs, easy to handle so that also non-digital-cinema natives could do a digital movie and play it on a big screen. This was the birth of easyDCP. After the release and the great feedback from post-production people, easyDCP became a renowned software suite for the reliable creation and playback of DCPs and for Interoperable Master Format Packages (IMF), too. Film festivals like the Berlinale have used it to guarantee screening of all submitted content.

Meanwhile, the tools with the brand easyDCP are used in more than 1,800 post-production houses and on every continent.

In sync with technology

The post-production software easyDCP has secured its place on the market for creation, playback, and quality control of digital cinema packages DCPs and since 2015 Interoperable Master Format Packages (IMF). Its rich functionality is not only available through the easyDCP standalone software, but is also integrated into a number of cutting-edge post-production tools. A wide set of features make it the reliable tool for generating DCPs and IMF packages: e.g. Dolby Atmos support, advanced subtitling options, GPU-accelerated real-time playback of IMF packages, GPU-accelerated JPEG 2000 encoding, advanced scaling features, extended export features, easyDCP software API for IMF integration, and presetting for easy authoring of Netflix packages.

The most recent approach to enable easy work and workflows in post-production was the development of the easyDCP Publisher. It is an all-in-one software solution for the generation and playback of Digital Cinema Packages based on the easyDCP suite, but offering a different licensing model. It’s the ideal solution for anyone who only occasionally needs to create a DCP. The pay-as-you-go model is perfect for film festivals, film schools and students, small postproduction and advertisement companies, documentary directors, newcomers, multi-media creators and cinema owners.

Final Cut Pro solution

And the considerations did not stop at this point – a version with a data bridge between easyDCP Publisher and Final Cut Pro is also released in the easyDCP Publisher. Big advantage: this first end-to-end workflow directly from Final Cut Pro X´s timeline to the easyDCP Publisher ecosystem guarantees users a continuous workflow for DCP creation. The integrated step to the easyDCP Publisher allows an easy way for cinematographers, post-houses, and movie enthusiast to create a standard compatible distribution package for the cinema. With this seamless transition from Final Cut’s editing timeline to easyDCP Publisher, users have the ability to carry out further improvements on the content as often as necessary.
