Our Digital Cinema mastering department offers a 24-hour, seven day a week service allowing for the largest digital cinema mastering capacity.

Our mastering division is constantly evolving and developing with the new technology available. Whatever language, whatever destination, 2D or 3D, day-and-date global release or single exhibitor release, FDS-CineFuture has delivered and will deliver.

Feature mastering directly from any non Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) compliant source material (Apple ProRes, AVID, XDCAM-HD etc... ), with improved turn-around times and accurate colour match from source material.

Upon receipt of a finished film we have the ability to convert all acceptable data formats to Digital Cinema Distribution Master (DCDM) files and subsequent Digital Cinema Packages (DCP). All our work is Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) compliant and is maintained to the highest standards of interoperability under CineFuture brand.

We have 4 high speed FDS Technology developed mastering stations under the CineFuture brand - FDS continuously develops this technology -, our system is super fast (1 FDS masterstation is 5 times faster than any normal mastering station) and up to date, we believe there is no same service and speed operating anywhere in the world today. Ours is the best because we’ve integrated the FDS OFE (Optimized Frame Encoding) management system into our encoding process.
