Hollywood Studios Choose Doremi Cinema’s
Digital Cinema Server for Premieres
Two major Hollywood premieres have been shown at the Cinema Expo trade show in Amsterdam playing on Doremi Cinema’s digital cinema servers. The DCP-2000 server was independently selected by two studios; Disney/Buena Vista for ‘Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest’ and Columbia Pictures for ‘Monster House’ in 3D.
The premieres underscore the reliability and consistency of the DCP-2000 server to provide both the highest quality JPEG 2000 images and the highest levels of security sought by the major studios to protect their material.
The 3D playback of ‘Monster House’ has been provided by one DCP-2000 server connected to a REAL D configuration. The server provides the full 3D effect with great consistency and an immediate set-up following movie & KDM ingest locally from a mobile disk.

Patrick Zucchetta, Managing Director of Doremi Europe, looks back on recent progress. “Being chosen to replay these premieres shows the confidence the studios have in us. They want security as well as quality and reliability. It was only a year ago that we were the first to be recognized for DCI-JPEG2000 compliant playback. Today we are building on our leading technology and have already gained major European sales with our partners as this continent starts to gear up for digital cinema. For both Premieres the Philips CineFence© forensic watermark was operating on our servers to demonstrate our continual path toward a final full DCI compliance”
