One of the great advantages of DCP is the capability of content encryption with AES-256. To access the content, one needs a decryption key “Key Distribution Message” (KDM). Each KDM key refers to a specific DCP server (venue) for a specific period. The correlation of the KDM key with a specific DCP server takes place upon the creation of the KDM using the unique Server Public Certificate and choosing the desired period during which the reproduction of the film is allowed.
The only thing you need to issue a KDM is the serial number of the DCP server from the screen you want to project to, or it’s public certificate, and in less than 5 minutes you can have a KDM delivered. We can also deliver multiple KDMs at once.
www.iwantdcp.com hosts a database that includes more than 420.000 DCP server Public Certificates (by serial number) and that is directly connected with all the major companies such SONY, DOLBY, DOREMI, CHRISTIE, BARCO & NEC.
Till today, there is no single report worldwide of a violation of an encrypted DCP.
After completing your order, we will keep the original files and the DCP in our local systems for 14 days. This is important in any case you want any changes for technical reasons. After these days we will proceed to the permanent non-reversible deletion process using dedicated software.
In any case, if you select a package of online hosting we will keep your DCP online for the selected time period. One-month online hosting is free for every order. Files will be deleted from the cloud after the date expires.
If your DCP is encrypted, we will keep the digest file securely and also one DKDM for our backup key management system. This is the only way to deliver new KDMs to decrypt your film in the future. We can send you a DKDM specific for your key management system with an extra charge.
Using Cloud Storage, you can easily transfer your film at a low cost in most festivals and cinema venues around the world. It is a reliable and modern solution with a lower cost than mailing the physical media through courier services. You can simultaneously support multiple cinema venues which is not possible with a physical medium. It is also a covid-free solution.
Each DCP is delivered in the form of a verified ZIP file and the link is sent to you by email. This is a safe method to transfer files through the web. We can deliver your film via Aspera, upon request. Select one of our packages.
Encrypted DCPs make sure that your content can only be played back on specific servers. No one will be able to read the unencrypted data. Every single Track (i.e. picture, sound or subtitle) can either be encrypted or unencrypted. So you have the ability to only encrypt the pictures, while the sound is unencrypted or vice versa. Another possibility is that you encrypt all reels of a single composition except the first reel so that the first reel (e.g. a trailer or advertisement) can be played back on every d-cinema server while the rest of the composition can only be played back with the right KDM.
