CineInspect
In addition to playing back a DCP, Dolby CineAsset Player can play back many popular video
file types and can perform quality checks on an encrypted or nonencrypted DCP.
2.1 CineAsset Player
CineAsset Player can play back encrypted or unencrypted DCPs generated by anyone, as well
as any video file or audio file supported by the Dolby CineAsset mastering software suite.
2.2 CineInspect
CineInspect inspects your DCP files by running a number of tests designed to verify the
integrity of your DCP makeup. You can choose from various validation levels to inspect an
unencrypted or encrypted Digital Cinema Package created by anyone.
After you inspect your DCP file, you can export a set of log messages that display the tests
performed and the results obtained from the inspection.

7.1.3 Options window
The Options window allows you to modify DCP playback and DCP validation settings.
These options are provided for modifying CineAsset Player DCP playback settings:
• Drop frame allowed: Drops frames when playing a file in real time. When this box is
unchecked, CineAsset Player plays every frame available. If system performance is low,
the playback may be slower when compared to real time.

• Use GPU for color conversion: By default, this option is set to use the graphic adapter
GPU when performing color conversion. If there is an issue with playback when color
conversion is enabled, you can uncheck this box to disable GPU support.
• Enable dcp validation check: Performs a validation check on each loaded DCP. If this box
is unchecked, CineAsset Player does not run a validation check each time a DCP is loaded
for playback. Once selected, the Options window expands and the Validation Options
section appears.
These options are provided for modifying your CineAsset Player DCP validation settings:
• File Validation: Verifies that DCP components are present and referenced appropriately
• Schema’s Validation: Verifies that the files in your DCP folder follow the appropriate
schemas
• Signature Encryption Validation: Verifies that your encrypted DCP includes the accurate
and valid signature
• Compliance Validation: Verifies that your DCP complies with either the DCI or standard
specifications (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) or Interop)
7.2 CineInspect main window
The CineInspect main window allows you to select the settings and display the results of a
DCP inspection. The CineInspect main window includes three sections: Validation Tool,
Validation Options, and Validation Output.
7.2.1 Validation Tool
The Validation Tool section in the CineInspect main window allows you to navigate to your
DCP for testing.
7.2.2 Validation Options
The Validation Options section in the CineInspect main window allows you to select the level
of validation for your DCP. CineInspect splits the validation inspection into various options.
These validation options are available in the CineInspect main window:
• File Validation: Verifies whether your DCP includes all of the files required for a valid DCP,
and verifies that the files were not altered (for example, size verification).
• Schema’s Validation: Verifies all the files in the selected DCP to validate against their
corresponding schemas, according to the standard of the DCP (SMPTE or Interop).
• Signature Encryption Validation: Verifies the integrity of the signatures present in the
files.
• DCI specification: Runs a number of tests specified in the DCI specifications to verify that
your DCP follows the standardization. Valid only for SMPTE DCPs.
• Standard specification: Runs a number of tests to verify that your DCP follows the DCP
specification standard for SMPTE or Interop.
7.2.3 Validation Output
The Validation Output section in the CineInspect main window displays a detailed set of log
messages specifying the tests performed and the results obtained from your DCP inspection

• If not present, then displays the graphical user interface (GUI) and does not start the
validation
• If present, then displays the GUI and starts validation automatically
These input options are for the log generation output.
• Optional, and is valid only when command = hide. It is the destination path file name.
• If not present, then hides the GUI and outputs the log to the standard output window.
• If present, then hides the GUI and outputs the log to the specified output file.
8.2.4 CineInspect CLI examples
Use these examples to validate your DCP from a CLI.
This example displays the Inspection Validation GUI, and sets the DCP path to G:/

CineInspect.exe -hide G:/Mpeg2_Interop_UnEncrypted 45
This example hides the Inspection Validation GUI, and automatically sets the DCP path to G:/
Mpeg2_Interop_UnEncrypted and the validation level to Compliance, with standard
specification validation. It starts the validation process automatically and outputs the log to
the test_log.txt file. If there is no extension, the output file format is automatically
considered a .txt file format.
CineInspect.exe -hide G:/Mpeg2_Interop_UnEncrypted 5 G:/temp/test_log
This example hides the Inspection Validation GUI, and automatically sets the DCP path to G:/
Mpeg2_Interop_UnEncrypted and the validation level to Compliance, with standard
specification validation. It starts the validation process automatically and outputs the log to
the test_log.txt file (which outputs to .txt file format).
CineInspect.exe -hide G:/Mpeg2_Interop_UnEncrypted 5 G:/temp/test_log.txt
This example hides the Inspection Validation GUI, and automatically sets the DCP path to G:/
Mpeg2_Interop_UnEncrypted and the validation level to Compliance, with standard
specification validation. It starts the validation process automatically and outputs the log to
