Dolby Introduces Advanced JPEG 2000 Digital Cinema Mastering Solution
Dolby SCC2000 Secure Content Creator delivers reliable, efficient encoding and encryption for digital content
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) announced today that its Dolby® SCC2000 Secure Content Creator, a scalable mastering solution for JPEG 2000 digital cinema compression, encoding, packaging, and encryption, will be accessible by postproduction facilities, laboratories, and exhibitors. The Dolby SCC2000 features many of the same tools used by the Dolby Production Services Group to master over 50 digital cinema titles for major Hollywood and international studios. The unit will be offered as part of a complete equipment rental, training, and support package.
"Dolby is proud to continue its tradition of providing the tools to filmmakers for producing the highest quality content for cinema playback with the introduction of the SCC2000," said Tim Partridge, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Professional Division, Dolby Laboratories. "The generation of real DCI packages that can play in all digital cinemas is critical to the success of this transition, and Dolby is committed to making that a reality around the world."
As studios release more digital content in the JPEG 2000 format, postproduction and digital intermediate (DI) facilities want to be equipped with the proper mastering resources to create digital movie files for distribution to cinemas. The Dolby SCC2000 addresses the emerging industry standards, including the JPEG 2000 image format.
Dolby is also committed to support studios and exhibitors with the appropriate playback systems in accordance with the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) specifications. The company is currently deploying JPEG 2000 upgrades to its more than 250 sites worldwide.
The Dolby SCC2000's suite of software offers a complete set of tools needed to take a Digital Cinema Distribution Master (DCDM) and quickly produce final digital cinema distribution files, known as Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs), for easy distribution to cinemas via satellite, fiber, or physical media.
A scalable solution for all digital cinema content, the Dolby SCC2000 is designed to work as a stand-alone unit or integrated into current postproduction and DI systems, enabling efficient 2K and 4K JPEG 2000 encoding. The option for generating secure keys offers key delivery message (KDM) creation and management via the Cosmos digital cinema database, operated by Dolby content-protection subsidiary Cinea.
In addition, the Dolby SCC2000's clear and simple graphical user interface has proven to provide reliable performance in real-world use at Dolby mastering facilities.
The Dolby SCC2000 will begin shipping in Q1 of 2007 and will be offered with ongoing support and training.
