The Shortfilmconference is more than just an interesting forum of professionals. We also have a few projects we are currently developing.

dcpCreate a custom DCP compatible player on consumer hardware

It’s already been proven possible to screen a (non-encrypted) DCP on a “normal” PC with specialized software. We are currently developing a custom written software DCP player, which is adapted to the needs of a festival context. We expect to launch this software end of 2014. Expected price is probably around 2.500-3.000 euro.

UPDATE! The Free DCP player (nickname: FRED) has just had its first real test-situation by using it during the DOCVILLE Documentary Film Festival in beginning of May 2014. Although some issues came about, the DCP player proved to be a reliable player.
