Very few people know the true story about DCC, the Digital Compact Cassette.
Was DCC's audio compression the grandfather of all compressed audio formats today?
Why did DCC have such a short life?
Why didn't DCC become popular in more countries?
The early termination of the format in 1996, leading to the rejuvenation in 2014 by Techmoan and later the DCCmuseum in countries that rejected the format before.
Nearly 2 years of research allowed us to finally get the truth about DCC on camera, presenting DCC enthusiasts the past, present, and potential future of the format we love.
This documentary is about the format, the creators, the decision makers, the musicians, the collectors, the geeks, and the audiophiles behind DCC.
We have traveled the globe and conducted the various interviews presented in this documentary. We need your help with funding the editing process and organizing the red carpet premiere in June 2019.
Risks and challenges
Creating a documentary about a niche product certainly has its challenges. Organizational and financial.
To be holding the premiere in the country where Philips invented DCC (The Netherlands) was a logical step. In the same building where most inventions were made by Philips and where Albert Einstein gave one of his speeches, we are now able to present the documentary about DCC.
However, we need to sell enough tickets and accumulate enough donations to make it work.
