Best Image and Sound Quality
DCP is the highest-quality digital exhibition format available. It far exceeds consumer formats such as DVD and Blu-Ray by up to 20x the quality. It is more stable and reliable than other codecs such as ProRes and H.264, not only because of a better image compression technique but also because these formats can look different when played by different computers. And it far exceeds legacy formats like BetaCam and HDCam because of its chroma subsampling.
DCP isn’t susceptible to mold, fungus, scratching, dust, or other problems that plague everything from 35mm prints to Blu-Ray discs. And because solid-state DCPs have no moving parts, they’re not likely to stutter or fall victim to mechanical failure.
With a print or a DVD, anyone can open up your film, an action that can have potentially devastating effects from piracy to media damage. Even when unencrypted, DCPs are only openable on enterprise software and specialized media servers housed in professional theaters. When you send out a DCP, you have an extra layer of peace-of-mind.
