The DoremiAM asset manager allows users to import universal media files to a wide range of Doremi players and servers. The XP/Vista PC software is available free to Doremi customers and operates with many file types and coding formats for the automated Gigabit transfer of media files.

It allows setting up media file imports that include conversion into the native formats of Doremi servers such as NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, and 2K. Once the conversion is done, transfers can proceed to complete the whole plug-and-play transfer process.

Doremi will also bring NuggetPost HD, its new video player, designed for post production applications that require a standalone video playback device with comprehensive media file format support. It includes Sony 9-pin control for variable speed and frame-accurate playback of HD and SD video with jog and shuttle.

The company is also enabling the viewing of 4K video with a 50-inch 4K-native (3920x2160) Astro screen, with video delivered by Doremi's DSV-J2 MB-4K Player, based on the company's digital cinema technology.

Doremi will give a presentation Sunday, Sept. 14, at 11 a.m. at the RAI Theatre, including exhibition of the 2008 version of its DCP-2000 Digital Cinema Player, with over 6,000 units installed worldwide.
