• Dolby ShowVault/IMB Integrated Media Block and Dedicated Storage Server

    • The Dolby ShowVault/IMB is a dedicated storage server capable of playing JPEG 2000 digital movies that conform to DCI specifications.

    • Dolby® ShowVault/IMB

      • The Dolby ShowVault/IMB solution includes all hardware and software features of the digital cinema package (DCP) platform with numerous advanced features such as dual 3G HD-SDI inputs, HDMI® 3D input with HDCP, 4K playback support, and scaling capabilities to 2K or 4K resolutions.

        The Dolby ShowVault is a dedicated storage server capable of playing back 2D, 3D, and high-frame-rate (HFR) DCI-compliant DCPs, and it has been specifically developed to interface with the Dolby Integrated Media Block (IMB). The Dolby ShowVault loads digital content and dispenses files electronically to the IMB via an external PCI Express cable.

        The Dolby IMB also supports deinterlacing of 1080i inputs and automatically converts incoming formats to avoid switching formats on the projector. All video inputs use a single audio output via RJ-45 for simple cabling to your audio processor of choice.
