John Hurst, co-founder and CTO of CineCert, LLC internationally
recognized developer of D-Cinema technology based in California, will be
presenting at the Global D-Cinema Update Session at IBC a call
to action to all digital cinema stakeholders to resolve delays in deployment of
software upgrades on installed digital cinema systems globally.
During the session hosted by the
European Digital Cinema Forum (EDCF), panelists will discuss the effect of out
of date software on global cinema operations and the barriers to upgrade which
keep many cinemas on legacy versions. John Hurst will explain the importance of
upgrading software on legacy systems and will explore barriers to upgrades
including the financial and operational issues that are preventing cinemas from
deploying new versions.
“Digital Cinema technology continues to
evolve since its introduction several years ago. We have today
equipment in theatres operating with software versions dating from 2006. As a
result, new optimized solutions for playback of content, security and
operations are often not deployed and distributors need to master several
versions of their movies to accommodate older systems” explains Hurst.
At IBC, CineCert is also introducing
Anini, a SOA based workflow management solution for automated and centralized mastering
of IMF mezzanine files (Interoperable Master Format) and Digital Cinema
Packages (DCP), featuring image transformation, compression, wrapping,
composition, packaging and testing modules. Also released in 2014 is Lihue, an appliance
for inspection, repairs and efficient duplication of DCPs.
The IBC Big Screen Experience Program
is free for all who attend IBC2014. The EDCF Global D-Cinema Update
Session will be on Sunday, September 14, 2014 at 16h00.
