Universal Offers Open and Closed Captions to Wolfman

Unlike some film-based systems, the closed caption DCP does not provide DTS time code. To take advantage of these new capabilities, the cinemas must have ordered “an open caption DCP and/or the closed caption DCP from Universal, when ordering their digital movie.

The Wolfman opened Friday, 12 Feb 2010.

Studios have indicated that they are interested in getting to the point of one digital master. The technology and the standards are maturing now to make that a possibility. Universal is certainly not the first distributor to make such prints available. But they have indicationed that they indend to provide such captions for all feature releases in the future.

The next step is adding descriptive narrative, which studios have said will be coming as the equipment becomes available.
