Whether equipping a cinema for an immersive Dolby Atmos audio experience now or in need of a flexible processor that can be upgraded to deliver a full Dolby Atmos experience, there is a Dolby CP850 processor that’s ideal for all needs. The CP850 Base will play back traditional Dolby® Surround 7.1 and 5.1 formats, as well as render select Dolby Atmos titles to a Dolby Surround 7.1 configuration. The CP850 Base includes the same advanced equalization and other audio features as the full Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850. The CP850 Base does not require Dolby Commissioning Service. Dolby Atmos marketing support is exclusive to theatres with the full Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850.

Dolby Integrated Media Server IMS2000—Speed You Can Count On
The Dolby Integrated Media Server IMS2000 is a DCI-compliant single-board solution that delivers faster ingest speeds, simplifying operations to save time and money. Combining Dolby and Doremi technologies, the Dolby IMS2000 offers cost-effective reliability proven on more than 80,000 screens worldwide, plus the flexibility needed for today’s cinemas. Key features include faster-than-real-time ingest (up to 500 Mbps) via USB 3.0, Ethernet, or eSATA; support for Dolby Atmos; HDMI® 4K input up to 30 frames per second (fps); 3D high frame rate at 30 fps and 48 fps; on-board RAID storage and external NAS support for increased capacity; web-based user interface; compatibility with the Dolby Theatre Management System (TMS) or any TMS that supports Dolby products; and dual-projector support.

Dolby Fidelio
Dolby Fidelio is a wireless audio system that delivers descriptive narration for the visually impaired (VI soundtrack) and amplified sound for the hearing impaired (HI soundtrack) in theatres. The system consists of a compact audio receiver with a plug-in headset, an audio transmitter that connects to any server via audio and USB connections, and a charging station that accommodates 10 receivers. Auditorium and channel (HI or VI) assignment can be easily configured through a touch-screen tablet.

Dolby CaptiView
Dolby CaptiView is a personal in-theatre closed captioning system for hearing-impaired movie audiences that transmits and receives AES-128 encrypted closed captions on a wireless frequency. A single USB transmitter plugs into the server to create a no-hassle installation, and it requires no additional projection-booth hardware. With an 80-meter signal range, Dolby CaptiView can be used from any seat in the house.

Dolby Theatre Management System—Intuitive Interface for Your Cinema
The Dolby TMS combines features from both previous Dolby and Doremi TMS versions to offer a versatile and robust solution. The Dolby TMS is a hardware-independent software solution that provides a comprehensive and intuitive user interface for the management of content for any multiplex configuration from 1 to 32 screens.

The Three “S’S” of the Immersive Cinema Experience: Sight, Sound, and Seats
Palace Ballroom III—Emperors Level

Monday, April 20, from 9:30 a.m.–12:15 p.m. as part of the International Seminars
The evolution of the cinema experience continues to evolve at a rapid pace. 2D is far from the norm. 3D was the next step, with 4D following. Taking a page from Star Trek, technological developments are moving at warp speed as the total theatrical experience is now called the “immersive experience.” It involves almost all of our senses and is taking us boldly where no man has gone before. This panel will engage with a number of technology companies and leading exhibitors to identify the key elements for exhibitors to use when introducing new technology into the cinema environment. The three key determinants of sight, seats, and sound will be assessed, identifying where exhibitors have found value and what issues they have faced in premium pricing and technology development.

Moderator: Jim Patterson, Director of Business Development, Major Cineplex and Managing Director, Embassy Diplomat Screens

Panel Members:
  • Stuart Bowling, Director, Content and Creative Relations, Dolby Laboratories
  • Todd Hoddick, Vice President Global Entertainment, Barco
  • Theodore T.Y. Kim, SVP Theatre Development, 4DX & Screen X
  • Cameron Mitchell, CEO, Vox Cinemas
  • George Scheckel, Director of Business Development, Entertainment Solutions, Christie
