Cloud-based DCP service: What next?

Wednesday, 12 August 2015

Here’s an interesting service for editors who need to create a Digital Cinema Package for distribution. 

AutoDCP:

Drop Apple ProRes or other video files into your Dropbox folder and automatically create DCPs!

After you install the application, a special AutoDCP folder appears beneath the Apps folder within your Dropbox folder.  This folder can be managed and shared just like any other Dropbox folder.  And AutoDCP works anywhere Dropbox works including Mac, PC and Linux platforms.

Simply drag your video files (such as Apple ProRes files) into the AutoDCP folder and the application makes DCPs automatically!

Two service levels to meet your needs

Our expedited service utilizes a dedicated machine and begins creating your DCP immediately. Our economy service uses system resources as available to save you money.

Having someone else’s hardware and software providing post services could be very useful. 

For example, imagine a service that would take all the footage in a Final Cut Pro X timeline or event and use audio recognition technology to generate a new Final Cut library that has the same clips but with metadata added so that all spoken dialogue appears as text in Favorite titles.
