Digital Cinema Package (DCP) playback using JPEG2000 codec provides Visually Lossless Compression for manageable theatrical movie playback file size while maintaining image quality. JPEG2000 fares extremely well with the reconstructed video being virtually identical to the source. In contrast, BluRay movie files use MPEG codecs for High Level Compression to create a more compact movie file size designed to fit on a small disc, thus the image quality is compromised.

A color space is a predefined specification that delineates a particular group of colors and is mapped into a device’s gamut so that the device’s colors correspond to real-world colors. DCI-P3 refers to the color space used in the Digital Cinema industry which encompasses much more than REC709 (BluRay Discs). Hollywood films are sent to commercial theaters in DCI-P3 in order to match the gamut of the digital projection equipment that is used. As the Digital Cinema standard, all DCP movie files are encoded with 4:4:4 (Chroma and Luminance) and with 12 bit color depth to maintain extremely high image quality.

Dolby Atmos redefines the cinema experience by offering content creators new ways to tell their stories. It adds the ability to control distinct sound elements in a soundtrack to the traditional channel-based approach for mixing, and it ensures that the audience experience is always the best possible for the specific playback environment.
