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.

The users say the system allows them to reduce costs and operate more efficiently. “We prefer to keep our dailies and finishing at the same facility and it was always our intention to do the Color for the series at MTI,” says Bryan J. Raber, the show’s associate producer.
