In 2003 when Doremi first installed its servers at the Cannes International Film Festival for the screening of James Cameron’s Ghosts of the Abyss, it established a trusting relationship between Cannes and digital technology. Since then, with the development of innovative technologies for digital cinema, Doremi’s involvement at Cannes has expanded. The company has now reached a prominent position in the festival’s organisation and with the presentation of all films, whether in the Official Selection, or elsewhere.
Previously Doremi servers were used by industry partners working with the festival. Now Doremi has signed a direct partnership with the festival organisation that runs though to 2014. For Cannes 2012 Doremi is supplying around 40 digital cinema players comprising the widely used DCP-2000 digital cinema player for up to 2K resolution and IMB (Integrated Media Block) and ShowVault combination for up to 4K.
Says Doremi’s Julien Gevaudan: “Doremi is the clear No.1 provider of digital cinema player technology worldwide and has a market share of approximately 85% in France. The company will take the opportunity of its Cannes presence to organise an on-site event to thank the French operators and its many partners.
“Visitors can also find a wide range of Doremi Cinema solutions at the film market on the booth of our partner, Decipro. These include the latest playout systems as well as Fidelio and Captiview which are designed to enhance the movie experience for the visually and hearing impaired.’
