Who we are

Based in Soho, the heart of London's film district, Soho Digital Cinema provides the film industry with digital cinema mastering and distribution services. It is not only our mission, but our conviction to produce the highest quality digital cinema encodes for film makers and distributors. Our work is produced to the highest quality control standards, and is an extension of our philosophy.


SDC take care of every step in the D-Cinema content supply chain, including encoding DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages), digital delivery to cinemas, hard drive replication, international distribution and 24 hour KDM (Key Delivery Message) support.

We use industry standard equipment in every step of our process, utilising cutting edge technologies such as DVS Clipster for encoding DCPs, and Dolby / Doremi servers for Quality Control checks. For D-Cinema distribution, we use digital delivery combined with reliable CRU DX115 hard drives cloned on our industrial hard drive replicator. Backed up by 24 hour KDM support and full on-site QC in DCI compliant screening rooms, we offer one of the most complete encoding and distribution services known to the film industry.


SDC is open from 09.30am to 6.00pm UK time, Monday to Friday. Please feel free to visit.
