DCI-Compliant XP-D Server Provides Upgrade Options to Stereoscopic HFR 3D and 4K
Qube Cinema announced the release of version 3.0 server software for its digital cinema servers. The new digital cinema server software platform is used in both the Qube XP-I as well as the XP-D, which recently passed the DCI Compliance Test Plan (CTP).
The new modularized version 3.0 software provides a common user experience for setup, operation and maintenance of both XP-D and XP-I servers. The flexible architecture provides XP-D owners with an easy upgrade path to the XP-I server and the Qube Xi 4K Integrated Media Block (IMB) in order to accommodate 4K resolution and higher frame rates. The 3.0 software supports stereoscopic 3D systems, as well as accessibility devices such as on-screen titles, closed captioning, and systems for the visually impaired.
“Gaining DCI compliance for the XP-D and its 3.0 software also helps validate the XP-I server,” said Rajesh Ramachandran, president and CTO of Qube Cinema. “This new system software offers exhibitors a smooth transition to 4K and HFR as DCI specs evolve and new theatrical content is released.”
