2 Ingesting Content
This section explains how to ingest content on a DSV-J2. Note that the DSV-J2 can only
perform playback of non-encrypted Digital Cinema Package (DCP). Such non-encrypted DCP
should have been generated using digital cinema mastering tools like the Doremi DMS-2000
Mastering Station or the Doremi CineAsset software.
2.1 Ingesting Through USB
This section provides instructions on how to ingest content from a USB drive into the DSV-J2
server.
2.1.1 Preparation Phase – USB Drive
If the content to ingest is on a USB drive, then plug the drive into the DSV-J2 and wait for the
Ingest window to appear on-screen. An example of this window is shown here:
Audio-visual
content already
ingested
“Ingest” button
Group of audiovisual contents
Individual
Composition
being part of a
group of audiovisual contents
“Ctrl” button
Figure 1: Ingest Graphical User Interface (GUI)
Note that if an item was already ingested, its name will appear in gray as illustrated above.
2.1.2 Ingest Phase
2.1.2.1 Item Types
Different types of content can be displayed in the Ingest window presented above. Audio-visual
content (e.g. features, trailers, etc.) is identified with the reel icon or with the “Speaker and Film”
icon whereas software package are identified using a box.
Figure 2: Reel Icon
Figure 3: “Speaker and Film” Icon
Figure 4: “Box” Icon
An audio-visual item may correspond to a group of Compositions – see Figure 1. Then, clicking
on the selected audio-visual item should make the contained Compositions visible as presented
in Figure 1 above.
2.1.2.2 Ingesting

3 Shows Management
Show management in the DSV-J2 is done using the CineLister software.
CineLister is based on a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows creation, editing and
playback of a Show Playlist (SPL). It also provides for the scheduling of several Show Playlists
playbacks in advance to be played automatically at scheduled times.
3.1 CineLister User Interface
In order to run CineLister, go to the “Start” Menu of the server, then to “Doremi Labs, Inc.” and
choose the item “CineLister”.
The “Editor” tab of the graphical user interface should appear on the screen. It is presented
below:
“Playback” tab
“Schedule” tab
Figure 8: CineLister Graphical User Interface (GUI) – “Editor” Tab
The “Editor” tab presented above is composed of two different parts:
- The left pane displays all of the content that is available on the server (e.g. features,
trailers, advertisements) together with any existing automation and trigger cues.
- The right pane is used to display the content of a given Show Playlist, as presented in
section 3.2.
The “Quit” button is used to close the CineLister user interface. Other tabs – “Playback” and
“Schedule” are available. Their usage is explained in sections 3.3 and 3.4.

3.2 Show Playlist
A Show Playlist defines a succession of Compositions and/or events associated with
Automation Cues and/or Trigger Cues. It provides the events chain to be taken into account for
the playback of a Show. Using CineLister, a new Show Playlist can be created or an existing
Show Playlist can be opened in order to be edited and/or played as presented in the following
paragraphs.
3.2.1 Show Playlist Creation
3.2.1.1 Principle
The CineLister user interface allows the user to create a specific Show Playlist from the
elements listed in the left pane of the interface. To add an element to the Show Playlist, select it
– the element will be reverse highlighted – and click on the “Add to Show Playlist” button.
This element will appear in the right pane. Repeating this operation with all the required
elements will lead to the creation of what is called a “Show Playlist”, as presented below:
“Add to Show Playlist” button
Arrow pointing up
“Delete
content”

Figure 11: Automation Cue added to an Element
You can repeat this operation for the same element of the Show Playlist or for another element
of the Show Playlist.
3.2.1.2.3 Trigger Cue
A Trigger Cue allows for the execution of a Macro Automation Cue when the underlying
condition – connected to the Trigger Cue when it was created using Macro Editor – occurs.
For example, if a Trigger Cue is based on the condition “Wait for GPI #1 ON”, you can link a
specific Macro Automation Cue as presented above in order to be executed when GPI #1 is ON.
You have the choice to program Trigger Cues to be available during the whole Show Playlist or
only during a specific Show Playlist element.

Version 1.2
The ingest should start as notified by the ingest progress box that will appear as presented
below:
Figure 33: Ingest Progress Box
When this “Ingest Progress Box” dis-appears, the playback can start – this does not mean that
the ingest was completed, but it means that enough material was already ingested to start the
playback while the remaining part of the assets continue to ingest.
The composition will then be displayed in green inside the Ingest GUI, highlighting the fact that
the content has not yet completely ingested.
NOTICE: The time to be able to start the playback depends on the network capacity. Make sure
to optimize the network to have a shorter lead-time before being able to start the
playback.
To start the playback of this “partially ingested” composition, open CineLister by going to “Start
→ Doremi Labs, Inc. → CineLister”. The composition being ingested should appear on the left
side of the “Editor” tab – if not, click on the “Refresh” button.
You can then select it to be part of a Show Playlist, in the same way as all the other
compositions already present on the unit, and start the playback – from the Playback tab as
explained in section 3.3.

4.2 Playback Behavior
The “3D” Show Playlist Property will make all of the video content of the Show Playlist played in
48fps mode, which corresponds to the processing profile of a stereoscopic CPL – 24 frames
'stereo': 24fps left eye, 24fps right eye.
A 2D 24 frames per second CPL will have each frame duplicated and sent to both HD-SDI
outputs allowing usage of the same projector setup for a full stereoscopic show, even if playing
2D content (e.g. 2D trailers).
