Digital Cinema Naming Convention

Appendix #6


Facility Codes

      The Facility field is useful as a record of which company packaged a given DCP.  Facility names are abbreviated to 2 – 3 characters.  The codes are determined by the individual facilities and can be changed at any time.  The facility codes in the table below are added upon request by each company.  The list does not represent any kind of technical endorsement – it is for identification purposes only.  The list was accurate as of this printing, but new facilities are added often.  A complete, up-to-date list will always be available on the website at:  If you have a facility that is not represented on the website and you would like to be, suggest a 3 letter code for your facility that is not being used and e-mail us at: We will do our best to quickly add your code - if you don't hear back in a week, please ping us again (spam filters or vacations sometimes looses requests).

This is NOT an endorsement or qualification of these facilities. These facilities have self-added themselves to the list. This list is provided for convenience only.

The list below is hosted on Google Docs and some may have problems in seeing it here. Here is a PDF (dated February 20, 2019) to help. IT MAY BE OUT OF DATE!!!

Additional Notes:

created the Composition Playlist".
