QuVIS’ Digital Cinema System Selected for World Premiere of Walt Disney Pictures’/Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” at Disneyland on June 24Th
QuVIS, Inc. today proudly announced the QuVIS Cinema System will be used to showcase the World Premiere of the highly anticipated summer feature from Walt Disney Pictures and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s
Chest.” The QuVIS Cinema System will provide digital motion picture
playback of Captain Jack Sparrow’s spectacular new big screen adventures for a select audience of filmmakers, stars from the film, and other VIP guests at Disneyland, in Anaheim, California on June 24th.
“Since 1999, QuVIS has been honored to work with Disney in promoting digital cinema,” said Larry Jacobson, President, QuVIS Entertainment Division. “Both of our companies have been pioneers in digital cinema, and like Disney, QuVIS has committed itself to providing moviegoers with new and exciting forms of entertainment. We’re very excited about participating in the world premiere of a movie that exemplifies what the movies are all about – and where they’re going in the digital future.”
QuVIS and Disney teamed up for the first commercial digital cinema release in 1999 with the box office smash, “Toy Story 2.” The initial digital cinema release was played back on QuVIS’ first generation server, the QuBIT, in the company’s QPE™ format. Since then, over a dozen Disney releases have been played back on QuVIS servers worldwide, including such recent animated favorites as “Chicken Little” and “Cars”. For the world premiere screening, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” will be stored and played-back on QuVIS’ third generation QuVIS Cinema System, in JPEG2000.
Lylle Breier, senior vice president of worldwide special events for Buena Vista Pictures Distribution said, “We’re delighted to have QuVIS on board for our big event at Disneyland this Saturday, and we appreciate their dedication to high quality. ‘Pirates of the
Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest’ has some of the most incredible effects shots captured on screen and some breathtaking action sequences, and digital cinema is making it possible for our Premiere guests to see the film under optimal conditions.”
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”, starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, is an all new tale chronicling the further misadventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). When Sparrow discovers he owes a blood debt to Davy Jones, he must find a
way out of his predicament or else be doomed to eternal damnation.
His problems collide with the wedding plans of Will Turner (Orlando
Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), who find their futures inextricably tied to Jack’s own uncertain fate.
Digital cinema audiences who see ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans’ Chest’ weeks after its debut will see the same pristine image enjoyed by those who attend opening night. Over 200 domestic and international feature length motion pictures have been shown using QuVIS digital imaging servers, utilizing JPEG2000 or QPE™ technology. QuVIS’ leading edge technology allows for multiple
formats, offering exhibitors the ability to present a wider variety of high fidelity content such as independent films, high quality advertising, sporting events and locally produced content – along with single server 3D and 4K capabilities. Outside North America, such content is often mastered in QuVIS' QPE format - the same encoding technology used by NASA for its launch imaging.
“PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST” from Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, opens in theaters everywhere on July 7th.
