USL, Inc. Introduces the New CMS-2200 ‘Next Generation’ Cinema Media Server with Solid State Storage

USL, 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 expansion unit.  

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 alternative content.
 
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 test equipment.
 
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.
