Dolby Integrated Media Block achieves DCI compliance

Sept 26, 2012

The Dolby Integrated Media Block (IMB) is now compliant with the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) Digital Cinema System Specification, as conducted by Aegisolve, Inc.

The Dolby IMB is compatible with all Series 2 projectors and offers built-in support for high-frame-rate 3D (48 and 60 frames per second) as well as 2K and 4K playback, all at a single price.

New customers can purchase the DSS220 Screen Server with the Dolby IMB. The DSS220 is a smaller and lighter server designed specifically for use with the Dolby IMB. For customers who have already purchased a Dolby DSS200 Screen Server and want to upgrade to the benefits of an IMB solution, a simple software upgrade pairs the server with a Dolby IMB.

“Last year, Dolby conducted the industry’s first demonstration of high-frame-rate 3D with a single projector. Using Dolby’s IMB and cinema server with Dolby 3D, we showed the audience the state of the art for 3D movies in both 48 and 60 frames per second,” said Doug Darrow, Dolby’s senior VP, cinema. “DCI compliance is another milestone toward enabling our customers to offer their audiences premium-quality 3D playback that filmmakers like James Cameron and Peter Jackson are advocating.”
