Quvis Technologies has announced the availability of Wraptor Digital Cinema Package services. Available immediately Quvis now offers indie filmmakers a fast reliable and attractively priced alternative for creating archiving and distributing studio quality DCPs. With all cinemas expected to convert to digital projectors by 2015 the Digital Cinema Package is replacing film print as the standard cinematic format globally. Up until now filmmakers have paid anywhere from $5 000 to $20 000 to convert their films to DCP. With Quvis DCP services the company is making it easy and affordable for filmmakers to not only convert films to DCP but also archive and distribute them easily to film festivals. Studios distribute in DCP for a reason – the quality is better said Quvis CEO Kenbe Goertzen. Indie filmmakers are increasingly required to convert and distribute their projects to film festivals in DCP. It delivers a better exhibition and that is why studios don't distribute to cinemas in Blu-ray. With Quvis we make it affordable for Indies to make a professional grade DCP. Now with our Wraptor DCP service offering we're taking it even further by offering everything from DCP conversion to archiving your film and managing the distribution. Film festival programmers are responsible for viewing hundreds and sometimes thousands of movie submissions a year and they're always looking for the simplest and most cost-effective viewing experience as well the best quality picture said Laurie Kirby executive director of the International Film Festival Summit a conference for festival organizers. Fortunately new technology makes it possible to stream submissions eliminating the need for DVDs. More festivals are exhibiting in DCP format so filmmakers and festivals will definitely benefit from this type of DCP service and distribution package.
