DTS Digital Cinema Introduces New Products At Cinema Expo

DTS Digital Cinema, a provider of digital entertainment services for content owners and cinema exhibitors, has announced the introduction of a new suite of products at Cinema Expo International 2008. The ScreenStore Media Player, Theatre Management System (TMS) and Screen Management System (SMS) have all been launched at the industry showcase demonstrating DTS Digital Cinema's commitment to providing solutions for the digital cinema network.
Drawing upon DTS Digital Cinema's extensive experience in the cinema market, the ScreenStore comes equipped with built-in networking and pre-show programming capability and provides highly flexible networking and configuration capabilities, along with the solid, reliable performance that DTS Digital Cinema's been famous for delivering to the big screen for over 14 years.
The ScreenStore delivers eight independent audio channels supporting high quality digital surround sound, plus enhanced video up to 1920 x 1080p for pre-show or alternative content.
The unit contains an internal hard drive that can store over 500 hours of multichannel film soundtracks, up to 88 hours of pre-show video and stills, up to 17 hours of high definition alternative content, up to 44 hours of standard definition alternative content or a combination of each.
In order to meet customer needs, analogue and digital audio outputs are both standard features and optional features include DTS Digital Cinema Access technology for subtitling, captioning and audio description as well as high definition video playback.
The TMS has been developed to be deployed as the central control system for the theatre and is designed specifically for exhibitors. The software is intuitive and easy to use, enabling exhibitors to focus on managing their content, rather than managing a computer system. It provides direct control of the Library Server and Screen Server and, due to its web-based architecture, can independently view or manage any player or projector in the cinema complex, from any networked location in or outside the complex.
With DTS Digital Cinema's TMS functionality, managers can easily create new shows, schedule and supervise receipt of content and keys, provide reports and manage and monitor system health and security. This product has been designed to interface with any screen server unit quickly and efficiently enabling it to work with any existing compatible equipment a customer has installed.
The SMS comes equipped with industry-standard image, sound and security features and offers a flexible, user-friendly GUI that enables easy scheduling and management of content, a simple control interface and tight integration with DTS Digital Cinema's proprietary Theatre Management System. The SMS can be used as a standalone digital cinema player for a single screen, or as a network player in a multiplex configuration when used with the DTS Digital Cinema Library Server.
The first installations of the TMS and SMS will take place in Q3 and the ScreenStore will be available for delivery in Q4 2008.
