Dolby Integrated Media Block and DSS220 Screen Server

Dolby Integrated Media Block and Screen Server DSS220

Dolby Integrated Media Block and DSS220 Screen Server

The Dolby® Integrated Media Block (IMB) provides exhibitors a platform for the future. This DCI-compliant 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.

Smaller and lighter than the Dolby Screen Server DSS200, 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 high-frame-rate 3D 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 250 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.

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.
