35MM MOTION PICTURE FILM PRINTS
We are members of the Disney Studio Content Security Program
Data can be supplied in the following formats:
Option 1: DCP
DCPs are easy to handle as they are a relatively small size and offer a high level of security. This method also gives the best match in terms of colours. The data in DCPs are stored in device-independent XYZ colourspace and we convert these to film colourspace using our colour profile.
Option 2: Cineon or DPX sequence, 10-bit LOG, 24 frames/sec, 2K resolution
This option gives you the highest possible quality as this is a completely lossless format, but the least convenient format to deal with. The amount of data required to store a 90-minute feature can take 1–2 TB of data. In order to match the colours properly, DPX or Cineon sequences should also be graded for our lab using our colour profile.
Option 3: HD ProRes source graded for REC.709 colorspace
We also accept ProRes format. Before sending us source material please check the colours on a calibrated REC.709 viewing device. In terms of quality this format is similar to DCP. Remember to consider the security of this media when transferring, as this format offers no encryption or security protection.
AUDIO AND SUBTITLES
Audio and subtitles can be supplied in the following formats:
Option 1: Separate WAV-file(s) or DCP
With this option we will be able to print analogue (SR) cyan soundtrack only. If you supply the separate 2.0 or 5.1 mix, please ensure the files are mastered to match the film speed at 24 frames/sec with –20 dbFS corresponding to 85 dBC SPL reference/dialogue level at the mixing position.
Option 2: Dolby Printmaster files
With this option you get both digital (SRD) and analogue (SR) soundtracks on film. This format provides the best sound quality, but required the soundtrack to be mastered in a Dolby certified mixing studio. The files can be supplied on MOD, CompactFlash (CF), or transmitted electronically.
Subtitles can be supplied in D-cinema XML format in UTF-8 encoding. Our digital printing systems allow complete flexibility. Subtitles can be created in any language, font, colour or position within the frame (vertical/horizontal).
