Warner Bros. Technical Operations Inc. Creates First-Ever 4K Digital Cinema Distribution Master

In Partnership with NTT-Japan, Studio’s Motion Picture Imaging (MPI) and Global Digital Media Xchange (GDMX) Facilities Create, Compress, Encrypt, Package and Digitally Distribute “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride” in 4K for Commercial Exhibition In Japan.
Motion Picture Imaging (MPI) and Global Digital Media Xchange (GDMX), two subsidiaries of Warner Bros. Technical Operations Inc., achieved a milestone in digital cinema, creating the first ever 4K Digital Cinema Package (DCP) for commercial exhibition. The DCP of “Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride,” created in compliance with the recently announced Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) specifications, was sent from Burbank, California to Japan, in conjunction with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp (NTT) where it is currently playing in three TOHO theaters.

In creating this landmark Digital Cinema Distribution Master (DCDM), MPI and GDMX have successfully met and executed the technical specifications and requirements announced this past July by the DCI for the distribution and exhibition of motion pictures in the digital world.

MPI created the image elements in DCI technical compliance. It then compressed them using the specification’s JPEG 2000 compression algorithm.

GDMX provided encryption and packaging services as well as created the final DCP (Digital Cinema Package) for distribution to Japan via NTT’s secure fiber network. GDMX also managed security key distribution for this project.

MPI and GDMX are presently working to create the DCDM for the upcoming release of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” which will also be digitally distributed with NTT to TOHO theaters in Japan. Distribution on this project will also originate in Los Angeles.

Deluxe Labs working with Sony Pictures, created the DCDM, encryption and digital packaging of Sony Pictures’ release of “Stealth” as part of the NTT pilot project. GDMX provided digital delivery services to Japan of the Feature for Sony.
