Qube XP-D Digital Cinema Server Selected by D-Cinema Korea
Deal inked as part of 1,000 screen rollout over 2-3 years
Qube Cinema is pleased to announce that South Korea based D-Cinema Korea, the largest digital transition firm in Korea, has chosen the Qube XP-D as one of the official digital cinema servers for their 1,000 screen rollout across Korea.
Under rigorous testing for 2D and 3D playback at the DCK test bed since July 2008, the Qube XP-D server proved itself repeatedly under the most strenuous conditions. This led to the Qube XP-D being certified and approved by DCK, and recommended to the Korean digital market for its superior technical performance and security.
D-Cinema Korea Co. Ltd (DCK), the joint-venture company of CJ CGV and Lotte Cinema, has also announced a Virtual Print Fee (VPF) deal with major Hollywood studios including Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Pictures. The deal will cover more than 1,000 screens all over Korea within the next two to three years.
J.M. Kang, Engineering Operations Director of DCK commented, “DCI-compliant Qube XP-D cinema server’s flexible and secure device has support for multiple formats including J2K, MPEG-2, and VC-1. It proved to meet the highest standards in Korean theatres where flexibility and diversity are key requirements.”
“High quality deployment of equipment during a digital transition generates great benefits for both exhibitor and distributor, and an interesting and practical structure. DCK welcomes this historic rollout in the Korean movie industry with Qube. We want Korean fans to enjoy a superior cinematic experience reached by digital transition.” J.H. Cho, Co-CEO of DCK added.
The Qube XP-D is fast gaining acceptance across the world as a powerful, versatile and flexible DCI compliant digital cinema server. Already present in over 1,600 screens across 6 continents, Qube is also the official digital partner of the Venice Film Festival and Tribeca Festival among others.
“It gives us great pleasure to be working with DCK during this digital transition. Our technical edge will be of great benefit to cinemas during DCK’s digital rollout.” said Rajesh Ramachandran, President and CTO of Qube Cinema, Inc.
