Bell Theatre Services also offer the ability to create DCP content for use with all digital cinema equipment. This service is primarily for independent advertisements that the cinema would like to include within their pre-show and trailers. Once the DCP is created we perform quality control checks in our 7.1 DCI approved theatre making sure there are no problems.
We can offer two types of DCP:
If the cinema can supply a still slide (see spec below) we can create a DCP from from this to their chosen length usually between 30 to 60 seconds. We offer an ftp services to that allows the Cinema to download their content and upload to the server.

Resolution: 1998×1080 or 2048×858 (depending on content aspect ratio)
We can also convert moving picture content to a DCP (see below spec). The cinema or vendor will need to send us the video file they have created we will then convert this to a DCP for the cinema to download.
