Free, open-source DCP creation from almost anything.

DCP-o-matic is a free, open-source program to create Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) from videos, images and sound files. This means that you can make content to play on DCI-compliant cinema projectors.

It can take files in many different formats, including MP4, Apple ProRes, MOV, AVI, VOB (from DVDs), M2TS (from Blu-Ray), WMV, MKV, JPEG, PNG, TIFF and lots of others.

It will run on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.   

DCP-o-matic is a renamed and updated version of DVD-o-matic and is in use in 47 countries around the world.

An especially warm welcome to the 199th and 200th users on the list: Cinéma Jacques Tati and Le Méliès, both in France.

It is so nice to have added 200 cinemas, companies, organisations and users to the list over the past 4 years: it greatly warms my heart and encourages me to keep working on DCP-o-matic! Thank you to everyone that has been in touch, from Saffron Screen onwards :)

If you would like to be on the list, please do get in touch. There is no sinister motive: just to show doubters that real people use DCP-o-matic successfully, and to show me that it is worth the work.

Thank you and all the best,
