Should my DCP be encrypted?

If you’re asking the question then the answer is no. Unless your distributor requires an encrypted DCP master, then encryption is more hassle than its worth. With encryption, each cinema screen that plays your DCP must be given a special decryption key that is unique to that screen for a certain time-period. This is how Hollywood feature films are protected and its very effective, but its also costly as it requires a great deal of management. Give us a call if you are unsure and we can help.
