Doremi is first with DCI-approved server27 May 2011
Doremi Cinema has become the first server manufacturer to pass the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiatives) Compliance Test Plan (CTP) with an Integrated Media Block for use in a DLP Cinema Series II projector. Doremi Cinema claims to be the world’s leading supplier of digital cinema servers, with over 20,000 servers now installed.
The DCI standard was created by the Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) to maintain specific criteria for the digital cinema industry, such as the high quality of images, interoperability and content security. The CTP was created by DCI as a uniform test procedure for these standards.
“The team at DLP Cinema congratulates Doremi on this milestone,” said Dave Duncan, manager of DLP Cinema for Texas Instruments. “We have had a long partnership with Doremi and value its commitment to excellence in the cinema industry.”
“Passing the CTP was unquestionably a challenge,” said Michael Archer, VP of Digital Cinema at Doremi. “We allotted vast engineering resources over the last year to guarantee that our promises to the industry, and our customers, were achieved. Attaining DCI compliance is mandatory for any server manufacturer wanting to play in the digital cinema space. With the studios pushing for compliant equipment, Doremi is once again ensuring its customers are not at risk within a VPF (virtual print fee) agreement when it comes to DCI-compliant IMBs.”
