Dolby Laboratories, Inc., was at ShoWest 2010, showcasing its impressive set of digital cinema solutions and their commitment to simplifying digital cinema audio processing. On display was the Dolby® CP750, the Dolby Screen Server (DSS200), Dolby’s Theatre Management System (TMS) with the latest v.4.2 software upgrade and Dolby 3D Digital Cinema solutions.
The Dolby CP750 is designed to work with the latest digital cinema environments. It seamlessly integrates with preshow servers, alternative content and digital cinema servers. Provides an easy-to-use interface and powerful setup/remote software and it can play back PCM digital audio; Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic®, Dolby Pro Logic II, and Dolby Digital Surround EX™ streams and analog audio. It is able to be monitored, controlled and upgraded from one centralized location via the Internet through a theatre’s network operations center. Easily processes hearing impaired and visually impaired tracks.
The Dolby Screen Server, DSS200 is the all-in-one platform to store, decode, and deliver pristine movies to the digital cinema projector. The new DSS200-03 has doubled the storage capabilities, by storing up to twenty feature-length movies.
The Dolby TMS Software provides a complete, easy-to-use interface for building, scheduling, and monitoring shows locally or remotely. One feature is the advanced general purpose I/O relays for low-cost automation of theatre assets like lights, curtains, and pre-show systems. It will be available during the second calendar quarter of this year.
The Dolby 3D Digital Cinema is compatible with leading digital cinema servers from Doremi, Qube™, XDC among others. Dolby 3D offers a flexible, premium 3D solution that supports both 2D and 3D playback without the need for a dedicated 3D auditorium and does not require a silver screen.
