“I fully intend to make the rest of my movies at a higher frame rate,” stated James Cameron
Doremi Cinema, the leading manufacturer and developer of digital cinema server technology receives tribute from Oscar-winning filmmaker James Cameron for its fundamental role in the exclusive demonstration of high frame-rate content delivery for future films. The demonstration entailed a 3D clip that was presented in 24fps, 48pfs and 60pfs to a vast audience during the CinemaCon 2011 convention held at Caesars Palace.
Doremi has been a developer of digital servers for over 25 years, and has been poised for such a challenge due to the immense engineering experience made available throughout years of ever changing standards and market requirements. The foresight shown by Doremi two years ago to include high frame rate play out and alternative inputs on their IMB proved once again that Doremi is in synch with the creative community and film distributors alike.
The 48 and 60 fps demonstration was a unique attempt to extend today’s technological accomplishments to better serve cinema patrons by achieving higher quality movies, and was indicative of the accessible resources made available by Doremi. These higher frame rates open a new dimension for filmmakers. Mr. Cameron supports this notion by commenting, “for the next two Avatar movies, I want to display a higher frame rate, 48 or 60 frames per second.
“Since inception, it has been our company’s vision not only to comply with the industry’s standards, but to also be one step ahead by offering future proof solutions. I believe that the spectacular demonstration by James Cameron attests to that vision” commented Michael Archer, Vice President of Doremi Cinema.
Both Doremi divisions, Cinema and Broadcast, have been actively engaged in the process of delivering content at the desired frame-rate (48 & 60fps) by utilizing combined resources and products. The process of achieving such a high frame rate for the 3D content was overcome by utilizing two (2) synchronized V1HD-2K™ Doremi servers to play back the left and right eye respectively. Doremi’s IMB, was the integrated media block used in the Christie® Digital Cinema Projector during the demonstration resulting in the pristine quality that James Cameron has envisioned. The Doremi IMB features multiple input selections including HDMI with HDCP support, PCIe connection, and Dual 3G SDI inputs which accommodated the higher bandwidth required for the 2K 60fps display projected during the demonstration.
