Audio-video manufacturing, design, installation and servicing giant Electrosonic Systems, fast making inroads into the cinema market, will be displaying the newly-launched MS9600 JPEG2000 server at ShoWest 2008 in Las Vegas.
The MS9600, a high-performance JPEG2000 appliance, plays unencrypted JPEG2000 content at 2K, 1080p and 720p resolutions. The company will also be showing the prototype DCI compliant version of the player which promises to take the Digital Cinema industry by storm.
Capable of delivering crisp, beautiful images at a price point well below that of its competitors, the MS9600 features 2K resolution via dual HD-DSI and dual DVI-I video outputs, 16 channels of broadcast quality digital audio, an advanced user interface and confidence monitor. It also includes professional integration features such as Timecode and Genlock, gigabit network, serial control, and four general purpose I/O. The unit also supports web interface for complete remote control and configuration for playlist management, SNMP and Metadata support. The MS9600 is ideal for special venue applications since it supports 48fps 3D playback and multiple units can be synchronized for multi-screen presentations.
Bryan Hinckley, Business Manager of the Electrosonic Products Group notes, “Electrosonic has been producing high definition MPEG video servers for 10 years now and we are excited to take the next step into the JPEG2000 realm. The MS9600 has immense application opportunities for special venues and 3D markets and more importantly, this product release represents the first milestone in creating a DCI compliant appliance for the Digital Cinema market.”
