The Pro Cinema Event Player, an expansion of IDC’s end-to-end digital cinema distribution solution, receives an IP video stream from a SuperFlex® Receiver and delivers a high quality 2D or 3D image to digital cinema projectors. The Pro Cinema Event Player also provides support for DVB-S/S2 direct satellite input.

Professional Video Decoding

The Pro Cinema Event Player can decode HD or SD video encoded with MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 AVC. This provides the highest possible quality video image for live alternative content in 2D or 3D. The Pro Cinema Event Player is capable of upconverting to high definition video resolutions up to 1080p60.

3D Live Technology Support

3D live decoding and flexible output formatting options are available to meet the growing demand for the presentation of 3D live alternative content. The integrated SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D Decoder* supports both 2D and 3D output of 3D live content and is compatible with all digital 3D projection systems — RealD, Dolby®, MasterImage 3D, XpanD and IMAX®. The 3D option also provides conversion of live 2D content to 3D to generate additional presentation opportunities.

Compatible with Digital Cinema Projectors

The Pro Cinema Event Player facilitates the display of high quality live alternative content using the same digital cinema projectors used to show movies. The dual-HDMI (DVI compatible) outputs are designed to be plug and play compatible with virtually any current digital cinema projector including Sony and Series-2 TI-based projectors. 

Flexible Audio Decoding

Audio decoders are included for Dolby Digital, MPEG-4 AAC and MPEG Layer I, II and II to ensure high performance mono, stereo and multi-channel sound. Dolby Digital 5.1 pass-through on S/PDIF is also provided for the input connection to theatre sound systems.
