BUG acquires first Doremi digital cinema mastering station in Scandinavia.
Post-production and graphic design studio BUG is the first facility in Scandinavia to acquire Doremi Cinema's DMS-2000 mastering station to create digital cinema movie and advertising files. With Norway having pioneered both the digital advertising and digital cinema markets in Europe, the Doremi system will enable the mastering of content in line with DCI-specifications for the entire Nordic market.
Thomas Berland, BUG's Managing Director commented that “BUG has always prided itself on offering the best services and creative tools available on the market. The Doremi DMS-2000 mastering system means that we can continue to offer our clients digital cinema files in the highest possible quality.” The award winning Norwegian studio will install the Doremi mastering system in its brand new headquarter in the centre of Bergen, the country's second largest city.
Doremi's European Manager Patrick Zucchetta said, “We are pleased that Doremi is the first choice for mastering to DCI-specifications in the United States, UK, Germany, Belgium, France and now also Scandinavia. We believe it demonstrates the system flexibility, whether used for feature films, trailers or adverts.” As well as its mastering system, Doremi has six cinema servers installed in several Norwegian cinemas, mainly with the NORDIC project (NORway's Digital Interoperability in Cinemas).
Speaking on behalf of Unique Digital, BUG's sister company, CTO Dave Spilde added, “the purchase of the DMS-2000 highlight's Unique's commitment of offering digital screen advertising solutions that anticipate DCI-quality digital cinema. We are very pleased to be working with a market leader like Doremi in pioneering the use of JPEG2000 for cinema screen advertising.” Unique's digital screen advertising system has been adopted on over 1,100 cinema screens across Norway, Sweden, UK, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal and most recently in Finland as well.
For over 25 years, Doremi has been providing award winning hardware solutions for broadcast, presentation and special venue
markets. Doremi’s innovative engineering group developed and introduced the first digital cinema server capable of playing JPEG2000, US patented 4K technology and first server to pass the DCI CTP. Doremi continues to build on that success by anticipating the needs of their customers and defining solutions to solve the new challenges faced by the cinema industry as it continues to make the transition to all digital exhibition. Doremi’s
family of digital cinema servers and mastering stations set the standard for quality and reliability and are installed in theaters and post-production facilities around the world. Doremi’s install base of digital cinema playback servers exceeds 50,000 units globally and remains the most installed server in digital cinema history to date.
