Oct 16, 2013

USL, Inc. has introduced the CMS-2200 Cinema Media Server with High Frame Rate (HFR). The advanced HFR media server supports JPEG-2000 decoding of 4K and HFR 2K images with advanced solid-state storage. The CMS-2200 will be on display at ShowEast in Hollywood, Florida, Oct. 22-24.

The CMS-2200’s features include JPEG2000 and MPEG2 decoding, AES-128 decryption/HMAC-SHA1, ingest through USB 3.0 or eSATA, two HD-SDI inputs and two HDMI inputs, sync input and output for dual projector large-screen presentations, two Ethernet ports for live content streaming, auxiliary Ethernet control port, built-in six-port automation, and 16 channels of AES-EBU digital audio. USL also offers an optional automation system with 12 outputs and two inputs for the CMS-2200. Managing the CMS-2200 is easily accomplished via the touchscreen Screen Management System (SMS). The SMS is cross-platform capable for Android, IOS and Windows on both tablets and laptops.

‚Ä®Founder, president and chief technical designer Jack Cashin and his engineering team at USL saw the need for a full-featured “standalone” cinema media server. “Our cinema media server gives digital-cinema operators the capability of storing and presenting 2K, 2D & 3D movies in HFR, up to 60 frames per second,” states Cashin. 4K 2D movies can be shown at rates up to 30 fps.
