Hi Everybody,

I'm not sure if there is anyone here that can help me out with this... but while waiting for answers through "official channels" I thought I would ask anyway!

I'm involved with my local film society. We screen non-theatrical films (members only) at the local cinema. We started off with a small Epson presentation projector but in more recent times the cinema has upgraded to digital and we can use a BluRay player connected directly to a shiny new Christie CP2200 2K projector.

They have a Doremi ShowVault Digital Cinema Playback server and IMB. The IMB has a HDMI input and this is connected to a HDMI switcher with a Sony BluRay player and DVB-T set top box as inputs.

We are finding that when playing a DVD/BD via the HDMI input the colors are "not right". Reds look orange, Blues have a purple shift and Greens are quite "muted", trees look like they are suffering drought conditions! It makes things look a little weird. The input from the DVB-T box has the same problem, and we have bypassed the HDMI switched to rule it out as well.

I looks like a color space issue, but I can't seem to find where this could be fixed. I presume it's handled within the Doremi IMB.

Anyone here had any experience with the Doremi IMB with the CP2200 that can offer some suggestions?

**edit** I forgot to mention that input from the Doremi DCI server looks fine.

Regards,

Michael.

Michael,

It is a colorspace setting issue and the required selection should be in one of the Christie menus. There should be a preset labeled Rec 709. I use a Barco DP-1500 , so I can't guide you through the steps to the Christie colorspace selection menu. You should be able to get a detailed step by step answer in this forum: http://www.film-tech.com/ubb/f16.html
