DCI-Compliant DCP Projector Sales and Rentals

Our Company

DC Projection team in Traverse CityDTA, formerly Deutsch, Inc., was founded in 1998 by Bob Deutsch and was an outgrowth of the incredibly successful Comcast Outdoor Film Festival benefitting the NIH Children’s Charities. At the time, projection technology was 35mm film only, and DCP had not yet been invented. The company then began operating as Outdoor Movies, and DTA Digital Cinema Projection emerged as DCI-compliant screenings became an industry standard.

In 2009, we purchased our first Digital Cinema projectors and became certified Christie Digital Cinema CP2000 Series operation and repair specialists. Since then, we have come a long way. We are now Christie Digital partners and dealers, as well as authorized Doremi Lab dealers. Our team of engineers is trained to install, service and operate the entire lineup of Christie Digital Cinema projectors. We have gone from just one early model Digital Cinema projector, to a vast array of machines with 4k capabilities.

Our long history of superb customer service and technical excellence at cinema events makes us a go to for top film festivals and event organizers worldwide. Each year, we return to prestigious events that include: the Ford Fly-In Theater at the OshKosh Air Show, Panama International Film Festival, Mill Valley Film Festival, Festival Cine Wiken de Vitacura, and the Traverse City Film Festival. We have premiered movies for Disney and Warner Brothers Studios, and have also provided services for the U.S. Air Force, Coast Guard and Army, and numerous colleges and universities across the country. Our clients choose us and return back because we always go the extra mile to make sure your event or installation is truly flawless.

What We Do

DTA Digital Cinema Projection is North America’s lead supplier of DCP projection equipment to large film festivals and special events. Now more than ever, studios are requiring DCI compliance for permission to screen their movies. We can provide Digital Cinema projectors that show these movies exactly how the producers and studios intended. Our array of Digital Cinema accessories is not limited to projectors. We have Dolby Digital Cinema audio processors, Doremi servers (though some projectors have integrated IMBs), and Chroma Meters for DCI color calibration. Our certified and trained engineers will provide fully DCI-compliant projection, for a viewing experience that is truly unlike any other.

DTA Digital Cinema Projection is also authorized to distribute Christie Digital Cinema projectors and to provide permanent projector installations. We have created custom projection booths to establish the best projection quality and experience for the audience. Organizations and theaters choose DTA Digital Cinema Projection for their permanent installations and DCP projector purchase because we provide unparalleled customer service. We have a 24/7 customer support line, where our highly skilled engineers will provide technical guidance. Going directly to the manufacturer could take hours, but when you work with DTA Digital Cinema Projection, you’ll have a technician on the line in minutes to answer any questions.

We also are available to provide sound services and movie screens to enhance your next event. Our outdoor movie division is the AIRSCREEN distributor for North America and a manufacturer of inflatable movie screens and surfaces. Whether your venue is indoor or outdoor, we can help bring your vision to life. We have worked in many situations, from the more stable conditions of a theater, to the unpredictable weather on beaches and coastlines. DTA Digital Cinema Projection has proven the ability to adapt to any venue and provide a wide variety of technical services.
