The Dolby® IMS1000 is a state-of-the art, DCI-compliant integrated media server that manages and delivers digital cinema experiences with efficiency and flexibility. It includes digital storage, server capabilities, and a secured DCI image media block in a compact form that enables it to fit inside series 2 DLP® projectors.

The Dolby IMS1000 is controlled by Ethernet interface using a web-based version of Cinelister, Dolby Theatre Management System (TMS), or third-party TMS supporting Dolby servers. DCP ingest can be done through USB, eSATA, or Ethernet. The Dolby IMS1000 supports the highest JPEG2000 decoding capabilities, including 3D HFR, and accepts alternative content, including dual 3G SDI and live stream.


The Dolby® ShowVault/IMB solution includes several 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) SMPTE and Interop 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 utilize a single audio output via RJ-45 for simple cabling to your audio processor of choice.

The Dolby® Integrated Media Server IMS2000 is a single-board solution that provides high uptime to keep the show running and protect revenue streams. The IMS2000 offers cost-effective reliability based on a server platform proven on over 90,000 screens worldwide, plus the flexibility you need for today’s cinemas. The IMS2000 supports SMPTE and Interop DCPs. It continues the trend of providing on-board RAID storage, server control, and a DCI-compliant media block in a compact form, enabling it to fit in a DLP® Series 2 projector. User control is via web-based UI allowing access from anywhere on the theatre network.
