The CMS-2200 Cinema
Media Server with immersive sound technology includes new inventive features
for digital cinema operators worldwide.
The patented technology supports 13.1 or more immersive channels without
the need for an external rendering processor.
Utilizing the DTS Multidimensional Audio engine, USL has created an
immersive audio system that is fully DCI compliant. USL will display the new CMS-2200 at the CineEurope

Founder, President and Chief Technical Designer, Jack

of 3D audio playback in cinemas.”
In addition to the patented audio processing technology, USL
has added several other innovative features to the CMS-2200. Product
manager Bill Cribbs elaborated: “The CMS-2200 now has Cue bundling, which is
the ability to group any number of automation cues into a bundle, greatly

this provides an incredibly powerful automation solution. In the
alternative content area, the CMS-2200 now supports HDMI auto switching, which
means HDMI presentations can be placed directly into one playlist.
An intermission feature was also added to playlist creation, which allows
a user to insert an intermission playlist inside of a feature
presentation.” The CMS-2200 servers are cloud-based and support
network transfers of both content and playlists.
Bill Cribbs further stated: “We are encouraged to see
