Doremi is the leading developer and manufacturer of digital cinema
servers and offers a range of video playback servers and converters for the
video and events markets. At IBC2012 Doremi is presenting its latest technology
that includes two new media players designed to streamline operations and
expand opportunities for digital cinemas and for the events and large venue
The LE100 live event player and
the NP100 video player are each intended for specific markets. With the majority of the
world’s movie screens now being digital, the new LE100
live event player is designed to simplify the presentation of
alternative content which has the potential to increase theatre usage and
revenues. For occasions including opera, sport, live band performances and
theatrical events, the LE100 enables live 2D and 3D alternative content to be
viewed by cinema audiences.
The LE100 is a 1RU video streaming and playback
device for digital cinema satellite distribution
applications. It plays HD 4:2:0 files up to 50Mbps and has native support for
files created with MPEG2, H.264 or VC-1 compression. It accepts transport streams via Gigabit Ethernet or DVB-S/S2
satellite input that can be decompressed in real time for baseband (HDMI /
HD-SDI) playback. The incoming stream can also be recorded to the 1TB (40h)
internal storage as a Digital Cinema Package (DCP) for future playback.
The NP100 video player is designed to provide the affordable,
versatile media playback of quality 2D and 3D required for markets including
special events, large venues, museums, theme parks and high-end digital
signage. For these applications, file-based workflows and high definition video
are now the norm.
Doremi’s NP100 allows the presentation of such high quality content
that may be offered in many different forms from many different sources. Housed
in a 1RU box, it is an affordable, versatile media player for SD and HD 4:2:0
files, up to 1080p60 and 50Mbps, and supports files created with MPEG2, H.264
or VC-1 compression. Supplied with Doremi Asset Manager software, it can play
almost any required file.
Both the NP100 and LE100 have
outputs that can include dual HDMI and dual 3GSDI, and with support for full
resolution 3D, and can connect to most 2D and 3D displays, including
dual-projector setups. Control is via Ethernet and the included web interface
provides easy-to-use device and playlist control. The web GUI is accessible
from any computer on the network including laptops or tablets. Remote monitoring and control is
available via the SNMP support.
