    Most venues of 100 seats or more these days have DCP projection equipment. If you work on anything from features, to indie features, short films, or get screenings at film festivals. You will pretty much run across the DCP issue. Even most entertainment companies in LA, with their own screening rooms, will have Christie’s projection systems and there again you will want to screen a DCP. You can rent your local theater, and have a premier for your latest work, or simply test what your conversions will look like on the large screen. DCP is not as uncommon as you would think.

    The last DCP I had to do was when I completed my last documentary. This week I was helping a friend, that is doing one for a short he is screening on Wednesday.

    As a producer that edits his own work, I went through the ringer figuring out how to do my own DCP after getting quotes for thousands. Just to convert to a playback format that is not that far removed from way we create DVD or the .mxf we render during editing.

    That is good to know and worth thinking about for the future.

    Whether or not you don’t have a personally need for it, means it shouldn’t
    be available. Other Pros in the industry does have need for it for film
    festivals and theater requirements!
