Qube Cinema Brings New Lineup To CineEurope

Qube Cinema, a leading provider of digital cinema technology, will present the new Qube Xi 4K Integrated Media Block; QubeMaster Xport, a DCP mastering plug-in for Final Cut Pro users; Qube KeySmith, a DM generating system, along with the company's XP-D digital cinema server at CineEurope in Amsterdam, June 27-30.
Building on technologies developed by parent company Real Image, Qube Cinema offers filmmakers, post facilities and exhibitors an easy path into the rapidly growing world of digital cinema.
Senthil Kumar, Co-Founder of Real Image and Qube Cinema, explained: "Real Image pioneered digital cinema technologies in India, one of the world's largest and fastest growing film markets. Our comprehensive approach to digital cinema allows us to offer proven tools for content creators and distributors, as well as exhibitors. This is what makes Qube Cinema stand out."
The new Qube Xi 4K will work with any digital projection system that supports an Integrated Media Block. Rather than using a PCI Express extension cable, the Qube Xi 4K is Ethernet-based, ensuring that there are no limitations of distance between the projector and the server, as well as eliminating any potential shielding problems.
Nigel Dennis, Director of Sales and Marketing for Qube Cinema in Europe, said: "The Qube Xi 4K opens up a whole new world of possibilities for theatre design. Attractive, space-saving bootless projection is now a practical possibility, as is the option of using secure centralised storage locations."
The Qube Xi 4K IMB support HD, 2K, 4K and stereoscopic 3D content in a wide variety of DCI-compliant formats.
QubeMaster Xport was introduced to the Final Cut Pro community at NAB this April. The new plug-in puts the well-established QubeMaster DCP mastering technology inside the Final Cut Studio Compressor 3.5, making it easy and cost-effective for filmmakers, pre-show content creators and post facilities to package and distribute DCI-complaint material. Any format supported by Final Cut Studio, including ProRes, RED, XDCAM, DPX, TIFF or stereoscopic 3D can be output to 2K and 4K digital cinema content with QubeMaster Xport. User-defined presets can be stored as Droplets for one-click mastering of finished material.
QubeMaster Xport comes in four versions: the QubeMaster Xport 2K, QubeMaster Xport 3D and QubeMaster sport 4K.
Dennis said: "Digital cinema is becoming the preferred format for growing numbers of film festivals and repertory theatres. With QubeMaster Xport, any Final Cut user can now create exhibition-ready content."
Qube KeySmith allows filmmakers and distributors to create and manage encrypted digital cinema content through industry-standard Ket Delivery Messages (KDMs). With KeySmith, users can create their own databases of exhibitors' equipment, generate keys, distribute the keys via email or ftp and maintain a complete record of activities.
To ensure security at the point of distribution, Qube KeySmith provides separate access levels for different users.
Dennis explained: "Companies that digitally produce or package movies can now create the security keys in house, without the expense and logistics of relying on a third party. This opens the door to a new business model and new sources of revenue for production and postproduction facilities."
Along with the technologies described above, Qube Cinema will also present its line of digital cinema servers, including the Qube XP-D.
Kumar said: "Where technology used to limit the tools available to independent filmmakers and companies, Qube is opening digital cinema up for a whole new class of players. The game is changing and more and more people see Qube Cinema with our outstanding price performance offerings and solid track record, as the smart alternative."
Qube Cinema will exhibit at CineEurope at the RAI convention centre in Amsterdam (Stand 400) between June 27 and 30.
