Qube Cinema, Inc., one of the leading Digital Cinema solutions providers in the world, today announced the availability in the North American and European markets, of its latest offering – QubeMaster Xpress. The powerful and easy-to-use QubeMaster Xpress software provides users the ability to convert slides, animations and videos into ready-to-use Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) that will work on any Digital Cinema Server.
Aimed at theaters equipped with digital cinema systems that would need to seamlessly screen custom material as part of their digital cinema presentation, QubeMaster Xpress allows statutory messages, custom slides and local commercials to be quickly and easily produced in-house without any prior experience in the complexities of digital cinema mastering.
Visitors to the Cinema Expo International convention being held June 23-26, 2008 at the RAI in Amsterdam can purchase the software from Booth #342 at a special show price.
QubeMaster Xpress guides the user through the process of converting JPEG, TIFF, TGA and BMP images; Flash animations; and AVI and QuickTime movies into standards compliant DCPs in the DCI JPEG2000 format. Three easy steps are all it takes – choose one or more files; configure the picture and sound; name the Composition and hit go!
Rajesh Ramachandran, President and CTO of Qube Cinema says “We tried to take all of the power, flexibility and speed we had in our QubeMaster Pro product for post-houses and bring that to the user in a package that anyone could use without any advanced digital cinema knowledge. We hope QubeMaster Xpress helps spread digital cinema far and wide.”
QubeMaster Xpress runs on any desktop or laptop computer with a dual-core processor running the Windows XP Professional, Vista Business or Vista Ultimate operating systems. A Mac OS X version is also under development.
The Qube product family has been conceived with the future in mind and provides an integrated workflow – from mastering to distribution to playback to reporting and archival. Being almost entirely software based allows the Qube system to leverage developments in the computer industry and bring to market, format independent, powerful and flexible products.
Qube Cinema’s flagship QubeMaster Pro product has found wide acceptance worldwide with about 25 top facilities across North America, Europe and Asia using the product today.
