The DCP Bay: Toward an Art-House Content Delivery Network for Digital Cinema

Abstract : Cinema theaters have arrived in the digital era. The Digital Cinema Initiatives has chosen Digital Cinema Package(DCP) as format for the distribution of feature films. No suitable economical nor technological model is proposed for DCP content delivery to art-house theaters. The existing solutions are too expensive or not adapted. Therefore, we conduct this research activity in cooperation with Utopia cinemas, a group of art-house French cinemas. Utopia’s main requirement (besides functional ones) is to provide free and open source software for DCP distribution. In this paper, we present a Content Delivery Network for DCP adapted to art-house. This network is operative since mid 2014 and based on torrent peer-to-peer technology inside a multi-point VPN.
