DTS Digital Cinema Debuts FilmStore® Content Management System at Cinema Expo 2007
System Now Upgraded to Include JPEG Playback
DTS Digital Cinema has announced that it will be introducing its FilmStore® Content Management System at Cinema Expo 2007 (June 25-28). The system is designed to provide a complete solution for management of digital content within a multiplex, and consists of three interrelated components: FilmStore Director™ content management software, FilmStore Central™ ingest and storage system, and the FilmStore® Digital Cinema Player. Together they provide a powerful digital cinema management system, from the ingest of content through playout and presentation.
FilmStore Central is the core of the FilmStore Content Management System and the main repository from which content can be distributed as needed to multiple screens. The FilmStore Central stores features, trailers and advertising content and serves that content to individual players via high-speed network connections. FilmStore Central also serves as a redundant storage medium for each screen player in a multiplex as well as supporting extensive activity logging, performance reporting and system maintenance.
The FilmStore® Digital Cinema Player will store up to three full-length 4K features or many 2K features plus trailers, advertising and other content. Designed for rugged operation in a 24/7 environment, the FilmStore player can be used as a standalone digital cinema player for a single screen, or in a multiplex configuration when used with FilmStore Central. It has been designed to fully support the DCI specification for 2K resolution JPEG2000 content, with optional capabilities for playback of 4K and HD-MPEG2.
FilmStore Director™ is the central control interface for the cinema. Designed for ease-of-use by exhibitors, FilmStore Director software is intuitive, allowing exhibitors to focus on managing their content rather than managing a computer system. It provides direct control of the FilmStore Central and can independently view or manage any player in the cinema, from virtually any location. With FilmStore Director’s drag-and-drop functionality, managers can easily create new shows, schedule and supervise receipt of content and keys, manage and monitor system security.
The FilmStore Content Management System is one of several innovations that form the DTS Theatre Management System, a comprehensive suite of products engineered to support the build-out and operation of a fully digital cinema environment. The FilmStore system will be demonstrated at Cinema Expo (June 25-28), with planned availability for delivery during Q3 2007. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
