Doremi Cinema has announced that total shipments of its Digital Cinema servers/IMBs have reached 40 000 units worldwide. Demand for its unique Integrated Media Block capable of High Frame Rate updates via software upgrade reached 11 000 units. Sales of DCP Servers to date this year have risen to over 2 000 with IMB shipments exceeding 4 000. With the year to date figures topping 6 000 this milestone continues to clarify and extend leadership position that Doremi holds in the field. “2012 has been an extension of our record breaking 2011. Our continued success includes not only large scale cinema groups but smaller independent theaters as well ” said Michael Archer vice president digital cinema. “Our customers are looking for proven reliable future-proof solutions designed from experience and delivered at a fair price with solid friendly education and technical support. Large or small Doremi provides technology that reduces investment risk because the solutions are proven and the support is reliable.” This May Doremi recently served as a technical partner of the 65th Cannes Film Festival. Doremi servers were first used at Cannes in 2003 for the screening of James Cameron's Ghosts of the Abyss. In previous years industry partners working with Festival used Doremi servers. Now Doremi has signed a direct partnership with the Festival organization that runs though to 2014. For Cannes 2012 a total of forty DCP-2000 digital cinema servers and IMB (Integrated Media Block) / ShowVault solutions were used to provide 2K and 4K playback.
