Soho Digital Cinema is a leading UK D-Cinema film lab. We are dedicated to providing the best quality digital cinema mastering (the creation of DCPs) with unbeatable turnaround and rates. Unlike many of our competitors we provide quality control checks at our calibrated cinema facility here in Hammersmith, London. This allows our clients to check the quality of their encodes, colour space conversion, sound mix, compression and content before release. We also offer Screenfast, our cloud based digital cinema delivery system that helps make cinema distribution simple, secure and affordable.

Our clients range from independent filmmakers to some of the best-known post-production facilities, studios and film distributors in the world.

We can convert any format into a Digital Cinema Package (DCP), provide on-site quality assurance reviews and handle all the logistics of distributing to theatres. We can also re-wrap and validate DCPs from other facilities and "reverse master" DCPs into different formats. Our turnaround time for a feature is normally between 24 and 48 hours.

SDC provide on-site quality control checks in our fully equipped and calibrated digital theatre. We always invite clients to attend QCs and one of our technicians will sit in to help look for any potential issues. The QC process includes our full validation procedure which involves multiple test ingests on popular digital cinema servers such as the Doremi DCP2000 and Dolby DSS200. The DCP is also tested using DVS's D-Cinema Validation tool along with extensive manual checks by our technicians.

SDC perform digital cinema mastering on the latest DVS Clipsters which are capable of 4K, stereoscopic, HFR, HDR, Dolby Atmos and, uniquely, stereoscopic subtitling. Clipster, by Rohde & Schwarz is well known and trusted throughout the film industry for producing the best quality JPEG2000 encodes and the most reliable digital cinema content.

Since 2008, SDC have created DCPs and DCDMs for thousands of feature films, trailers and alternative content for distributors all over the world. We are some of the best at what we do and we take a great deal of pride and care in delivering the best looking digital cinema content, reliably, on budget and on time.
