Many of our customers also use the easyDCP Validator for incoming inspection.
Create and Playback a DCP with ATMOS Soundtracks
Atmos technology is a proprietary sound standard that can usually only be applied and processed in selected cinemas. Nevertheless, the easyDCP programs are also able to process these files. Both easyDCP Creator+ and easyDCP Player+ can easily bypass these ready-made audio files to create a DCP, process them and play them back via the easyDCP Player+ (although without processing the Atmos technology itself).
