Dolby upgrades digital cinema systems with JPEG2000 and watermarking
March 17, 2007
Dolby Laboratories has completed upgrading its installed Dolby Digital Cinema systems with JPEG2000 decoding throughout North America, Japan and Korea. The company has also added advancements in security including watermarking and CineLink 2, as well as ingest for 4K file formats.
With these upgrades, Dolby continues to attempt to meet all specifications outlined by Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI). The system now supports both JPEG2000 and MPEG-2 file formats.
Dolby has also rolled out security enhancements to its Dolby Digital Cinema unit. The upgrade included CineLink 2 link encryption and video forensic watermarking, each adding an extra layer of security as required by the DCI specifications. Watermarking enables a studio to trace any pirated film back to the theatre from which it was copied.
