Doremi Servers Shipping 3D HFR Updates
Doremi (Sophia Antipolis, France and Burbank, CA, USA) has delivered over 48,000 cinema servers worldwide and is the most populat 3D cinema server provider in the world. And now, Doremi is pleased to announce the release of its stereoscopic 3D high-frame-rate (HFR) software and firmware updates. The updates will allow all existing IMBs (Integrated Media Block) in the field to be easily and remotely updated to support 3D HFR content.
Note: The IMB is the part of the digital projector receiving the digital content stream from the server and decrypting the signal to produce a watchable image.
The first worldwide release of a 3D HFR will be "The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey" by Peter Jackson that will be released next month on December 12, 2012.
What is HFR?
Higher frame rates (typically 48 image per second, or two times the usual rate) offer new creative possibilities for filmmakers and, most importantly, an exciting new experience for consumers that can’t be replicated in the home.

“HFR and Doremi Cinema’s IMB technology delivers the massive leap in quality necessary to invigorate and drive customers back into the theaters,” said Michael Archer, Vice President of Doremi Cinema. “The industry has a window of opportunity it must seize because HFR movies on the big screen can deliver an experience that consumers can’t get at home.”
Doremi's headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Burbank (USA). Its European headquarters and R & D are in Sophia Antipolis (France). Doremi also has an office in Tokyo (Japan) and two R & D centers in Canada and EMEA. Doremi has delivered over 48,000 cinema servers worldwide, and its production capacity enables short delivery times.
