Qube Cinema, Company 3/FutureWorks, more...

Technology company Qube Cinema broke a barrier by delivering a high-bit-rate 4K stereoscopic DCP through two Barco projectors. Presented to a live audience at the Moody Gardens 80′ by 60′ giant screen in Galveston, Tex., the demo used a standard Qube XP-I server paired with Qube Xi 4K Integrated Media Blocks installed in two Barco DP4K-32B projectors. According to Qube, this advance in digital cinema technology makes high-bit-rate, stereoscopic 4K projection from a single DCP through a single server a reality for exhibitors.

Raber, the show’s associate producer.
