Doremi to Provide DCP-2000 Servers for Technicolor Digital Cinema’s North American Deployment
Doremi Cinema is pleased to announce that they have delivered over 150 DCP-2000 cinema servers for Technicolor Digital Cinema’s North American deployment of end-to-end digital cinema services and equipment.
Many of these units will be used in REAL D’s 3D deployment for Disney’s animated feature film, "Meet the Robinsons." Doremi Cinema has also completed a supplier agreement with Technicolor Digital Cinema for potential future orders.
The DCP-2000 cinema server will be installed at major exhibitors including Mann Theatres, ArcLight Hollywood's Cinerama Dome, and National Amusements. Doremi Cinema currently has over 2,700 installed cinema servers worldwide.
Doremi Cinema has greatly outpaced the competition in server installations. Doremi was first on the market with a JPEG2000 server that conforms with the DCI Technical Specifications and continues to add advanced features to keep it comfortably ahead of the competition. Some of these features included 3D playback, CineLink II strong link encryption, and Thomson's NexGuard and Philips' CineFence Forensic Watermarking.
“Doremi is known for being very responsive to the industry’s desire to integrate important DCI features on an accelerated timeline. This allows our studio and exhibitor customers to feel confident that the digital cinema beta test will be a success,” said Curt Behlmer, executive vice president of Technicolor Theatrical Services and COO of Technicolor Digital Cinema.
Michael Archer, VP of Sales at Doremi, adds "We have been working very closely with Technicolor Digital Cinema over the last year to ensure the rollout of their beta network is a success. Our servers are already deployed in many of their screens and we look forward to continuing this successful relationship.”
