Doremi to Build 4K Media Block for DLP Cinema

Doremi Cinema has announced that it will repackage its current 4K server technology into a 4K integrated media block for DLP Cinema next-generation electronics. This will secure a full solution for Texas Instruments and their OEM's upcoming 2K and 4K projectors.

Doremi Cinema has announced that it will repackage its current 4K server technology into a 4K integrated media block (IMB) for DLP Cinema next-generation electronics. This will secure a full solution for Texas Instruments (TI) and their OEM's upcoming 2K and 4K projectors, according to the company.

"Our ability to provide exhibitors with a 4K road map is vital," said Michael Archer, vice president of Doremi Cinema, in a statement. "We give them the opportunity to utilize a single server manufacturer across the multiplex. Exhibitors can mix and match 2K and 4K technology while keeping the same external server hardware, SmS, and TMS. They also benefit from all the features available on Doremi servers, such as closed captioning, server-generated 2D/3D subtitles, and live-event playback."

Doremi officials say they've been working with TI's DLP Cinema team for more than a year to ensure compatibility of Doremi's IMB with TI's next-generation electronics. The IMB uses Doremi's 4K media block technology, and the company's 4K patent allows Doremi to capitalize on its 2K knowledge and technology by only adding the 4K portion to the back end of the processing. This eliminates Doremi's need to design a whole new media block, which would add a significant amount of time to the production release.

Engineering samples of Doremi's IMB will be made available to TI's OEMs for integration into their next-generation projectors in Q3 2009. Production IMBs will be available in Q1 2010.
