System Requirements

CineCert’s Wailua Digital Cinema Mastering System is a package of software tools that allow the user to manipulate and test digital cinema files as part of a d-cinema packaging or distribution workflow. With the Wailua toolset you can easily create a D-Cinema Package (DCP) from source files by issuing individual commands or by scripting in your favorite shell, Python or C++ environment.


Wrap JPEG 2000 pictures, PCM sound, and SMPTE ST 428-7 or TI CineCanvas™ timed text into the MXF file format, in either Interop or SMPTE formats.


Flexible track file encryption and KDM features.


Test and Repair DCPs.

Wailua validation is incorporated into the creation process of every package and composition, providing auditable assurance of output quality.

Process Images

Ki’i, an optional Image Processing Module, can also be integrated with Wailua. It provides access to uncompressed image files, Color Transformation Language (CTL) support and JPEG2000 compression using a variety of software and hardware compression engines.

Build DCPs

Create Composition Playlists (CPLs) and packages ready for distribution.

Author Supplemental Packages

Advanced tools are also provided to automate conform operations and supplemental package authoring.


The Wailua tools are all command line operated so that they may be easily scripted in a Unix-like execution environment. Complete system functionality is also available to user-developed programs using the Wailua SDK for Python or C++.


Wailua is ideal for implementing Service Oriented Architectures, batch processing, multiprocessing and other advanced workflow methodologies now common in post-production and mastering operations.

Wailua handles the details of d-cinema file processing, allowing you to concentrate on your application

System Requirements

Wailua runs on your hardware and choice of operating system. Wailua is supported on over thirty variants of Linux and other common Unix- like platforms.
