Qube Cinema XP-I Server And Xi 4K IMB Reach DCI Compliance

Qube Cinema's XP-I digital cinema server and Xi 4K Integrated Media Block (IMB) has passed the DCI Compliance Test Plan (CTP).
The high performance, security and reliability of the XP-I and Xi IMB have been confirmed by these tests. This server-IMB combination accommodates 4K resolution and is the ultimate setup for high frame rate (HFR) exhibition, making it essential for today’s digital cinema.
The DCI compliance testing was conducted by CineCert. To pass the CTP, the Qube XP-I streamed 2K and 4K DCP content to the Xi IMB embedded in a Barco DP4K-32B DCI-compliant projector. The Qube XP-I server now joins the Qube XP-D server, which achieved DCI certification earlier this year.
"The performance and dependability of Qube servers and the Xi 4K IMB that exhibitors have come to expect has been validated," said Rajesh Ramachandran, president and CTO of Qube Cinema. "Achieving DCI compliance reinforces our commitment to provide postproduction facilities and exhibitors with the means of creating and showing the best 4K and HFR content."
The XP-I server is capable of streaming up to 1 Gbps of data from a single DCP to two synchronized Xi 4K IMBs imbedded in two projectors for pristine 4K 3D cinema at up to 60 fps (30 fps per eye) and in 2K 3D at up to 240 fps (120 fps per eye). The XP-I streams data through a dual Gigabit Ethernet interface to the Ethernet-based Xi 4K IMB, ensuring that there is no limitation on the distance between the server and projector. The Xi 4K IMB is installed in numerous commercial locations worldwide with DLP Cinema projectors from all of the TI OEMs and supports HD, 2K, 4K and 3D content in DCI-compliant formats.
The modularized third-generation Qube XP software gives a common user experience for setup, operation and maintenance of both the XP-I and XP-D servers. This allows XP-D users to upgrade easily to the XP-I and Xi IMB to accommodate 4K resolution and higher frame rates. With their high bit rate throughput and unique ability to work transparently with dual projectors, the XP-I server and Xi 4K IMB are also ideal for giant screen exhibition.
The Qube XP-I digital cinema server and Xi 4K IMB are available from Qube Cinema and its worldwide network of resellers.
