Delivery of finished DCP

These specifications are valid when Brightfish will receive a ready-made DCP .i.e. YOU make the DCP. This makes things easier for us, because we can be sure that your spot will be in the right format. We will still remaster each spot so that they follow the Belgian specifications (aspect ratio, DCP name, …), but we will not charge you any DCP production costs.
