The Dolby® Integrated Media Block (IMB) provides exhibitors a platform for the future. This system offers fully built-in support for high frame rate, 2K, and 4K playback all at a single price, combining compatibility, lasting value, and cost effectiveness.
The smallest and lightest screen server on the market, the DSS220 takes only 2U of vertical rack space, easing space constraints and simplifying installation. Rather than combining the server and media block functionality in one chassis as in the DSS200, the IMB is installed directly in the cinema projector.
Dolby Integrated Media Block
High Frame Rate 3D Playback—Build out your auditoriums with confidence knowing the Dolby IMB supports current and soon-to-be-released formats (48 and 60 fps).
Gigabit Ethernet Interface—Consolidate your servers into a central location to simplify service and day-to-day operations. With Ethernet, the IMB and server can either remain in the pedestal or be separated by 100 ft or more with standard network switches.
2K and 4K—Don’t worry about resolution. The Dolby solution gives you 2K and 4K support right out of the box, with no upcharges. Everything you need is provided in a single product.
Dolby Screen Server DSS220 Features
Compact Design—With a vertical height of 2U (3.5 in.) and a depth of 17.7 inches (50 cm), the DSS220 chassis weighs only about 31.5 lb (14 kg).
Ample Internal Storage—RAID 5 hard disk array with 4 TB net internal storage.
Standard eSATA Port for Connection to External Storage—Connects to external storage including rack-mounted CRU drive bays with eSATA connectors.
Optimized for Multiplex Installations—Many multiplex screens don’t need CRU removable drive bays in the server. For those that do, the Dolby DSS220 also supports an IMB in the projector for future expansion.
Standalone Dolby Integrated Media Block
Upgrade Your DSS200 Server—Customers with an existing Dolby Screen Server DSS200 and a Series 2 projector can purchase a standalone IMB to add support for 4K and high frame rate playback.
