Qube Cinema Completes D-Cinema Conversion for Kuwait National Cinema Company

Qube XP-D Servers with Barco Projectors Installed in 39 Screens
Digital cinema technology leader Qube Cinema will install 39 Qube XP-D  servers for Kuwait’s main theatrical distributor – Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC) – completing the chain’s transition to digital cinema. Previously, Qube Cinema had partnered with KNCC to convert an additional 15 screens.

Real Image, the parent company of Qube Cinema, was the system integrator on the project, delivering a turnkey solution for KNCC, pairing Barco projectors with the Qube XP-D servers. Sixteen of the screens also include MasterImage 3D systems for playing stereoscopic content. With a number of recent installations in the Middle East, Egypt, Lebanon, East and South Africa, Qube Cinema’s presence is continuing to grow in the region.
 
“The choice was easy this time,” said Hisham Al Ghanim, general manager, KNCC. “We looked at several digital systems before adopting Qube, Barco and MasterImage for our first round of installs. We are very pleased with the technology and the support we received.”

The Qube XP-D server is fully DCI compliant and integrates seamlessly with all major Theater Management System software. KNCC will have around-the-clock access to Qube technicians who are able to remotely access a Qube XP-D server via its web interface, ensuring the systems stay up and running. 

“We are proud to partner with Qube on this important roll-out for KNCC,” said Abel Garamhegyi, Barco vice president Growth Markets and managing director for India. “These converted theaters now have high-quality systems that allow them flexibility in a rapidly changing environment.” 

The Qube digital cinema systems are easily upgradeable and can be outfitted for full 4K playback with the addition of Qube Xi 4K Integrated Media Blocks (IMBs).

“KNCC has always been a technology pioneer, and had moved to digital ahead of the market,” said Raja Enok, chief marketing officer at Qube Cinema. “They were one of our first customers in the region and we are delighted that they have now chosen Qube for their entire network.”

The Qube XP-D digital cinema server is available from Qube Cinema and its worldwide network of resellers. For more information visitwww.qubecinema.com/products/XPD or see Qube during CinemaCon at booth #2013.
