DCI sets sites for compliance


Studio consortium Digital Cinema Initiatives has identified test sites that will determine whether manufactured digital cinema equipment and products are compliant with its Digital Cinema System Specification.

The DCI spec was written in order to create uniform, compatible digital cinema equipment throughout the U.S. It has been used around the world.

Three companies will handle the compliance testing: CineCert in the U.S., DMC/Keio University in Japan and Media Innovation Center in Italy.

"Through compliance testing, distributors, exhibitors, manufacturers and technology providers will have the assurance that equipment and products have been rigorously reviewed and comply with DCI requirements," the studios said.

The DCI plan includes all referenced standards of the Society for Motion Picture and Television Engineers.
