Doremi Cinema, the leader in digital cinema technology, today announced an exclusive agreement with Empire Theatres Limited of Canada to install Doremi Cinema Servers on more than 300 Empire screens. The installations will include Doremi's DCP-2000 and Integrated Media Block (IMB) with Doremi's ShowVault. Burbank California based Doremi manufactures the industry's most popular digital cinema servers with more than 15,570 units shipped worldwide. 

Empire Theatres is Canada’s second largest exhibition company with headquarters in Stellarton, Nova Scotia. Empire Theatres operates 50 theatres throughout Canada, with 380 screens, and employing more than 2,500 employees.

"We began our relationship with Doremi last year when we installed 63 screens with Doremi's DCP-2000 cinema servers," commented Valerie Ryan, VP Real Estate & Development for Empire Theatres. "Given that initial success, and the additional field testing we conducted in conjunction with Series II projectors, Doremi servers were the clear choice for going forward."

“We selected both the Doremi DCP-2000 and IMB with ShowVault because we wanted to future proof our circuit for 4K," commented Ryan. "Both models provide outstanding 2K playback for 2D and 3D, but knowing that Doremi’s IMB is the only 4K IMB readily available today which can easily be upgraded to 4K playback with a simple firmware upgrade gives us the flexibility to control how we roll out our 4K screens."

Empire Theatres' choice of Doremi exemplifies their commitment to providing movie audiences throughout Canada with the most advanced technology in support of Hollywood's 2D and 3D blockbusters. "Empire Theatres is a truly innovative exhibitor with an outstanding reputation for quality and guest satisfaction." Michael Archer, VP of Doremi Cinema comments. "Their selection of Doremi as their exclusive digital cinema server provider illustrates their in-depth understanding of digital cinema technology and where the future of exhibition is headed. We are thrilled to undertake this long-term partnership and look forward to supporting Empire Theatres as they take their theaters to the next level."
