Control Access

Secure copyrighted media and prevent unauthorized access with expiry timers, permissions, and file limits.

The Challenge:

Coordinating the distribution of hundreds of digital cinema packages and screening files is a lengthy procedure with zero margin for error.

Both film distributors and film festivals require large volumes of high-resolution media to be securely delivered globally to tight deadlines.

  • Distributors and DCP facilities need to send digital cinema packages to thousands of theatres around the world just days before a big release.
  • Print traffic coordinators need to receive final content submissions from hundreds of filmmakers at once.
  • Protecting copyrighted material is essential, as is managing permissions, key delivery message (KDM) information, and file limits.
  • Shipping a hard drive or media shuttle is slow, expensive, and problematic.

The Solution:

MASV: Hassle-free digital cinema file delivery for film distributors and film festivals.

With an accelerated and secure global transfer network, MASV reliably moves multi-terabyte DCPs and digital cinema distribution master files over the cloud, ensuring content delivery from filmmakers and DCP facilities to movie theaters and film festivals alike.

  • Send image sequences and complex DCP folders with auto-resume to ensure every file delivery is successful in any network condition.
  • Embed upload Portals on festival submission sites with custom file size limits, permission controls, and form fields that can be modified.
  • Share copyrighted content with secure file transfer backed by TPN Gold Shield.
  • Automate the transfer of digital cinema packages to multiple destinations with simple no-code workflows.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I send a digital cinema package (DCP) online?

The best way to send large DCPs online is to use MASV—the secure and reliable media file transfer tool for distributors and film festivals.

With support for unlimited file packages, image sequences, popular formats like DPX and MXF, and because MASV maintains the complete file and folder structure of your source upload, transferring a digital cinema package folder online is a simple drag-and-drop procedure without the need to zip the content first.

This saves a lot of time, not waiting for the massive dcp file to compress, making the whole process faster and more efficient.

How can I distribute DCPs to multiple theaters around the world?

MASV’s lightning-fast transfers are enabled by leveraging AWS’s global network of over 300 data centres to ensure film distributor DCPs are delivered to cinema fans everywhere, be they in Los Angeles, North America, or anywhere in the world with an internet connection!

With the ability to auto-recover from any network interruption and iteratively resume critical transfers, MASV can ensure every digital delivery is successful.

MASV’s detailed reporting log also gives you complete oversight of every upload and download that occurs, and with files being hosted in our cloud storage for 10-days for free, there’s plenty of time for local theaters and motion picture screening rooms to download the DCPs ready to display on their digital projector.

Distributing sensitive intellectual property and copyrighted media through MASV’s network is also a highly secure process, backed as it is by the Motion Picture Association’s (MPA) Trusted Partner Network (TPN) Gold Shield.

As MASV’s fees are egress only, charges will only be incurred when files are downloaded. You can offer your DCPs to as many theaters as you like, with generous discounts on larger volume downloads. Custom Package Tags and downloadable CSV billing reports allow you to assign egress fees to specific packages for accounting purposes.

How can I manage hundreds of film festival submissions?

MASV’s enhanced Portals are the ultimate universal file uploader for every workflow. They can be customized with festival branding, restricted to specific file formats and naming conventions and much more.

Custom form fields also enable festival organizers to ensure filmmakers agree to the necessary permissions, waivers and copyright ownership before uploading a content submission.

This highly customized Portal can be embedded directly into your festival website, so there’s no need to direct filmmakers elsewhere.

With the ability to transfer single files of up to 15 TB each while maintaining all file metadata and folder structures, MASV is the perfect way to reliably receive digital cinema distribution master files and digital cinema package content securely, including high-resolution video files for film festival screening on a digital projector. All without receiving and returning a hard drive.

By assigning multiple destinations to a single Portal, media files can be simultaneously delivered to multiple storage locations and accurately backed up to third-party cloud storage.
