Digital cinema leader Doremi today announced that it shipped over 850 DCP digital cinema servers in February alone bringing its worldwide install base to over 11,300 units; a remarkable feat given Doremi first demonstrated its digital cinema server prototype at IBC in 2004.
“Our line of DCP-2000 & DCP-2K4 servers are the lynchpin products behind Doremi Cinema’s expanding client base” comments Michael Archer, VP of Doremi Cinema. “Thanks to our customers, dealers and integrater partners, Doremi's digital cinema server remains the number one installed server globally.”
With financial backing for digital cinema deployments finally coming to fruition, exhibitors worldwide are pressing forward in securing systems for their screens. “We have spent years researching and developing technology that has allowed us to incorporate a multitude of additional features into our server. Many of these are not part of the DCI spec, but are seen as necessary value adds by our customers when choosing our product”, says Doremi Cinema VP Michael Archer.
Doremi's customers include the largest exhibitors and post houses in the world. Foreseeing the explosive growth of digital cinema spurred by the anticipated financial backing, Doremi completed a building expansion earlier this year in support of the mega-deployments to come.
3D and other “event” films are what sell tickets. “It is our job to make sure that exhibitors can take advantage of tent pole films like Avatar and Alice in Wonderland, leverage the top down studio marketing that comes with them, and deliver the latest digital content to their theater patrons, who are packing theaters for these films and paying a premium ticket price.”
The success and popularity of Doremi Cinema servers represent the essence of the company's commitment to engineering innovation, quality manufacturing, and most importantly, their customers.
