The film industry is an expensive enterprise, thanks in part to large distribution costs. Before digital cinemas, theaters needed a film print for every movie and every screen. Because of their large output, major studios could print film en masse to theaters. For most other production companies and filmmakers, however, a handful of prints often prevented great movies from wider distribution.
Since 2002, digital cinema has revolutionized the film industry and changed the way we watch movies. With the advent of digital cinema and Digital Cinema Packages, distribution costs have not only dropped dramatically, they have provided a universal standard for projectors and quicker distribution.
As more theaters across the U.S. switch from reels to servers, digital cinema continues to open the door for more filmmakers and production companies to get their dreams on the screen. But without a DCP, even a well-produced digital movie will never see the light of day.
