Cinema Server 

The DigiCine Digital Cinema Playback Solution offers exhibitors a premium, easy to use, software based SMS with flexible choices in capability, servers and configurations for new installations, upgrades and replacements, providing value today and in the future. 

Making the most of what you have 

Digital Cinema is constantly progressing, new immersive sound options, the entry of laser projectors, and now new potentially disruptive LED technology poised to be introduced to the market. If you've invested in digital cinema equipment which is still viable for years to come, do you really want to replace those Series 1 projectors providing value in your cinema? 
 
We think there are some benefits to being able to defer expensive projector decisions until the market offerings are more clearly understood. Our Series 1 solution is designed to replace those media players originally deployed with a feature rich DCI compliant solution that provides a new lease of life for the 15,000+ Series 1 projectors deployed and gives exhibitors a real alternative to the projector manufacturer's replacement strategy. 
PROTECTED INVESTMENT 
If you do subsequently swap to a Series 2 projector, your investment in the media player is protected as our solution migrates with you to the Series 2 environment via a small upgrade kit. 

FLEXIBILITY 

Having been designed with the intention of being computer server vendor agnostic, DigiCine takes advantage of all the capabilities of commodity hardware components on a modular level. As your needs change, or technical capabilities improve, your media player configurations can be adapted, utilizing a consistent and proven overall infrastructure. For example, with Hot Swappable hard drives, media storage capacity can be increased simply by increasing the number or capacity of the hard drives in the server. Should there be a drive failure, this reduces the necessity of expensive call out charges or replacement servers.
