NEC Solutions America Delivers Industry’s First DCI-Compliant Multiplex Server System at Showest 2006

STARUS JPEG2000 Screen Server Completes System to Enable System Management Anywhere
NEC Solutions (America), Inc. today announced at ShoWest 2006 the availability of the industry's first DCI-compliant multiplex-wide digital cinema management and movie playout solution.

NEC's STARUS™ Digital Cinema solution, powered by the STARUS fault tolerant hub server and the STARUS JPEG2000 screen server, allows operation from anywhere within the multiplex. Smart design makes error reporting, troubleshooting, and system management simple and fast for local technicians or remote support sites without compromising content security.

"NEC's STARUS Digital Cinema server system allows content to be moved between screens faster, which minimizes the challenge that multiplexes face on Thursday nights," said Harry Mathias, director of digital cinema technology, Digital Cinema Division of NEC Solutions America. "NEC was the first to design a multiplex-wide system capable of supporting any required number of screens making this the most scalable and reliable system in the industry."

NEC Solutions America is showcasing its STARUS JPEG2000 screen server, as well as the full STARUS Digital Cinema solution and ADVASuite™ In-Theatre Advertising system, at the ShoWest 2006 Conference in Las Vegas, March 14 - 16, in Palace Rooms 4 and 5.

The new STARUS JPEG2000 screen server complements the recently announced family of STARUS Digital Cinema projectors with DLP Cinema® technology from Texas Instruments®. The complete solution expands NEC's position in the entertainment and post-production markets by serving as a single source for digital cinema systems.

Robust STARUS Digital Cinema Server System
The DCI-compliant STARUS Digital Cinema server system supports the full security requirements outlined in the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) specification. As the only "virtual" control system on the market, it allows operation from anywhere in the cinema multiplex to any screen within the multiplex.

Combining state-of-the-art technology with ease of use, NEC's STARUS Digital Cinema server software incorporates the cinema industry's own language in the user interface, minimizing training requirements. The STARUS JPEG2000 screen and STARUS multiplex-wide hub servers are designed for easy installation and manageability. The hub server also provides up to 99.999% availability with a fully redundant fault tolerant system, which enables the JPEG2000 screen servers to continue running scheduled movies even in the case of a total network and central server system outage.
