Inc. announces the product launch of the innovative CMS-2200 Cinema Media Server
with solid state storage for the digital cinema industry. The new server features
cross platform Android, xOS (MAC), iOS (Apple), Linux and Windows based Screen
Management System (SMS) and built-in automation with an optional CMSA-100
The CMS-2200 received
rave reviews in January when it was used to demonstrate USL’s implementation of
immersive sound technology at the International Cinema Technology Association
seminar series, in Los Angeles.
The CMS-2200 supports decoding of
4K, High Frame Rate 2K images, and is HDMI 2D & 3D compliant. Two USB 3.0
ports allow accelerated ingest of content and enable live streaming. CMS-2200 is a compact,
projector-mounted unit and comes with a clear, concise operation manual, and
online videos, for smooth, efficient installations. Also supported in the CMS-2200 is MPEG 2 for
Solid state drives (instead of standard mechanical hard
drives) provide years of maintenance free operation.
The CMS-2200 includes the USL
patent pending implementation of immersive sound, and pre-renders object-based
sound within the media block, eliminating the need for an expensive external
rendering system. The CMS-2200 features multi-screen support and the ability to
transfer keys and content from a library server or manager’s station.
Founder, President and Chief Technical Designer, Jack
Cashin, and his engineering team at USL, Inc. recognized the need for a full
featured, economical “stand-alone” cinema media server. This culminated in the creation of the
visionary and inventive CMS-2200. “Our cinema media server gives digital cinema
operators the capability of storing and presenting 2K, 2D & 3D movies in
HFR, up to 60 frames per second,” stated Jack Cashin. 4K 2D movies can be shown at rates up to 30
fps. “USL has already demonstrated the
advantages of rendering immersive sound within the media block. We are active in the SMPTE standards
committees on immersive sound to ensure the CMS-2200 will play DCPs with
standardized immersive sound,” added Cashin.
The CMS-2200 bolsters USL, Inc.’s
extensive collection of digital cinema products, which includes advanced
digital audio processors, monitors, crossovers, accessibility equipment and
USL will provide demonstrations of the CMS-2200 at the 2014
CinemaCon in Las Vegas, March 24-27. Visit
the USL booth #313F for more information.
