CineEurope attendees with full-pass access will be able to experience these films as well as select footage of studio presentations in Dolby Atmos.

Dolby’s acquisition of Doremi now enables the company to offer a full range of integrated, end-to-end post-production, audio, and imaging tools.

The Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850 product line offers exhibitors a choice of advanced digital cinema audio solutions. Whether the exhibitor is equipping a cinema for an immersive Dolby Atmos audio experience now or is in need of a flexible processor that can be upgraded later to deliver a full Dolby Atmos experience, there is a Dolby CP850 processor that’s ideal for all needs. The CP850 Base will play back traditional DolbySurround 7.1 and 5.1 formats, as well as render select Dolby Atmos titles to a Dolby Surround 7.1 configuration. The CP850 Base includes the same advanced equalization and other audio features as the full Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850. The CP850 Base does not require Dolby Atmos Commissioning Service. Dolby Atmos marketing support is exclusive to theatres with the full Dolby Atmos Cinema Processor CP850.

The Dolby Integrated Media Server IMS2000 is a DCI-compliant single-board solution that delivers faster ingest speeds, simplifying operations to save time and money. Combining Dolby and Doremi technologies, the Dolby IMS2000 offers cost-effective reliability proven on more than 80,000 screens worldwide, plus the flexibility needed for today’s cinemas. Key features include faster-than-real-time ingest (up to 500 Mbps) via USB 3.0, Ethernet, or eSATA; support for Dolby Atmos; HDMI 4K input up to 30 frames per second (fps); 3D high frame rate at 30 fps and 48 fps; on-board RAID storage and external NAS support for increased capacity; web-based user interface; compatibility with the Dolby Theatre Management System or any TMS that supports Dolby products; and dual-projector support.

Dolby Fidelio is a wireless audio system that delivers descriptive narration for the visually impaired (VI soundtrack) and amplified sound for the hearing impaired (HI soundtrack) in theatres. The system consists of a compact audio receiver with a plug-in headset, an audio transmitter that connects to any server via audio and USB connections, and a charging station that accommodates 10 receivers. Auditorium and channel (HI or VI) assignment can be easily configured through a touch-screen tablet.

Dolby CaptiView is a personal in-theatre closed captioning system for hearing-impaired movie-audience members that transmits and receives AES-128 encrypted closed captions on a wireless frequency. A single USB transmitter plugs into the server to create a no-hassle installation, and it requires no additional projection-booth hardware. With an 80-meter signal range, Dolby CaptiView can be used from any seat in the house.

The Dolby TMS combines features from previous Dolby and Doremi TMS versions to offer a versatile and robust solution. A hardware-independent software solution, the Dolby TMS provides a comprehensive and intuitive user interface for the management of content for any multiplex configuration from one to 32 screens. The Dolby TMS also features an open gateway for ticketing/point of sale (POS) and connection to electronic delivery of media through industry partners.
