In many ways, subtitling for theatrical films differs from TV and Disc subtitling. Mostly done in dual Languages, follows client-specific style guidelines, and ends up at a technically challenging process that is the creation of a DCP (Digital Cinema Package). Screens offers subtitling services for several theatrical films distributors in the MENA region, each requiring the translation to be done in 2 simultaneous languages. A specialized team of experts carefully creates the subtitles, using more convenient software than those for standard subtitling, after which the translation undergoes a meticulous timing phase, where IN and OUT cues are spotted frame-accurate. After preparation and QC, the file is transformed into a special type of XML subtitles, that is fed to a series of high-end tools to create (or re-create) the Digital Cinema Package files.
This process requires powerful processing equipment and savvy editors to be able to do the job while taking into consideration:
- Seamless conversion to codec
- Accurate file-naming and XML pointers
- Repackaging into DCP server-friendly formats
- KDM keys and high security standards
