Ultra D-Cinema Digital Cinema System Highlights

D-Cinema has been designed keeping the current industry scenario in mind. Even though cinemas have been 100% Digitized and D-cinema [DCI Spec] 2K/ E-cinema [NON DCI] FULL HD technologies are prevalent, there are several challenges that the industry faces today. Let’ take a look at them:

Current Industry Challenges

  • Delivery Mechanisms are either Physical Delivery [DCP + Key] or Satellite Single Uplink to Multiple Downlink.
  • Scheduling and Show Management is Offline leading to lack of control and errors.
  • Outdated Technical Workflows and Systems have led to the lack of coordination between stake-holders.
  • DCPs are used in D-cinema and Mpeg2 / 4 are used in E-cinema. E-cinema output ports are secured with only HDCP.
  • No clear Billing and Show reporting system in place.
  • Pilferage and Piracy.
