The Dolby Integrated Media Block is now compliant with the Digital Cinema Initiatives Digital Cinema System Specification as conducted by Aegisolve. The Dolby IMB is compatible with all Series 2 projectors and offers built-in support for high-frame-rate 3D (48 and 60 frames per second) as well as 2K and 4K playback all at a single price combining compatibility lasting value and cost-effectiveness.
  Exhibitors have two options for purchasing and installing the Dolby IMB. New customers can purchase the DSS220 Screen Server with the Dolby IMB. The DSS220 is a smaller and lighter server designed specifically for use with the Dolby IMB. For customers who have already purchased a Dolby DSS200 Screen Server and want to upgrade to the benefits of an IMB solution a simple software upgrade pairs the server with a Dolby IMB.
 “Last year Dolby conducted the industry’s first demonstration of high-frame-rate 3D with a single projector. Using Dolby’s IMB and cinema server with Dolby 3D we showed the audience the state of the art for 3D movies in both 48 and 60 frames per second ” said Doug Darrow senior vice president cinema Dolby Laboratories. “DCI compliance is another milestone toward enabling our customers to offer their audiences premium-quality 3D playback that filmmakers like James Cameron and Peter Jackson are advocating.”
