Pathé Network Headquarters Installs Doremi's Digital Cinema Server
Doremi Cinema, a division of Doremi Labs, Inc. has completed an installation at the Paris, Champs Elysees, headquarters of the French cinema and movie company, Pathé Network. The work at Pathé's Viewing Theatre adds Doremi Cinema's DCP-2000 JPEG2000 digital cinema server technology and projection to the existing 35mm viewing facilities.
To provide viewing for both established 35mm as well as the rapidly growing volume of digital cinema material, the Christie CP2000 digital projector is mounted on a hydraulic mechanism to allow it to share space with the 35mm projector. The DCP-2000 reflects the latest specification of this popular model with DCI conforming JPEG 2000 image codec, encryption and forensic watermarking, as well as 800GB of storage. This provides approximately 11 hours of storage at 2K resolution. The installation also includes a Sony HDCAM SR VTR, indicating the importance of top quality RGB HD material as well as the ability to show other electronic formats.
Patrick Zucchetta, Managing Director of Doremi Technologies, Europe, comments, "Pathé makes up half of the EuroPalaces Group, the largest French network with over 1,000 operating screens. Installation at the theatre headquarters for approving new production rushes is a great testament to the quality of our DCP-2000 Cinema Player."
The Doremi Cinema DCP-2000 is the first commercially available server capable of playing DCI-JPEG2000 digital movies at high bit rates, up to 250Mb/s, to achieve high quality on the large screens. Packaged in just 3RU it includes CineLister software for easy movie clip and playlist administration and features Cinelink II and forensic watermarking making the DCP-2000 the most secure server on the market.
