Createasphere has an excellent article on the technologies that we have to watch out for…and explains why.
We don’t do press releases here at DCinemaTools. There are other places who do it so much better then we ever could. But BSPR, that seems like something we could get behind. Alas, it means something else, and the EU are all over it.
Binding Safe Processor Rules (BSPR) – Well explained at: New EU directive to feature cloud ‘bridge’ | IT PRO. I might otherwise be called, leveling the playing field toward quality.
The twin stars around which digital cinema revolves are quality and security. The first allows some leniency; for example, 3D cinema movie quality is only close to the specification required of 2D movies. But security is meant to be multi-layered and well beyond ‘good enough’. From lens to lens, the expectation is that each player will do their part to contribute to a secure whole.
Fortunately, such security is part of a general industry effort that constantly looks for and responds to problems. Unfortunately, there is a lot of nuance that require a professional eye to spot trends. In a field full of artists on very tight schedules and increasingly tight budgets, the art of security can take a lower priority if the ramifications are not known.
