Odeon the largest cinema chain across the UK and Ireland has completed its digital rollout. The program over two years has involved all 113 Odeon cinemas in the UK and Ireland. A total of 890 Odeon screens are now operating with Doremi DCP-2000 digital cinema servers. Marking the completion of the digital conversion program Odeon COO Roger Harris says “Throughout this program we have had great support from our partners Doremi Cinema. That and the reliability of their cinema servers has helped to make this period of great change run smoothly.” Brent Watson Doremi European customer services manager says “This is a milestone for digital cinema in the UK. We are proud to have been so closely involved with this successful project and look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Odeon.” The business continues as Odeon expands. Due to the chain’s recent acquisition of five Reel cinemas 26 more servers are now heading for installation and a further six are needed for a new Dublin cinema.
