The Qube XP-D digital cinema servers are designed to be DCI compliant and equipped to work with all 3D technologies available today, making them an ideal choice for any digitization plans across the globe.
Drew Kaza, Executive Vice President of Digital Development for ODEON and UCI Cinemas said “ODEON and UCI Cinemas is committed to providing the ultimate cinema experience for film fanatics. 2009 promises to be a hugely exciting year for 3D film, the installation of the latest technology across our cinemas will ensure that audiences Europe-wide can enjoy tomorrow’s blockbusters in the highest quality possible.”
“We are really excited that ODEON and UCI Cinemas have chosen the Qube XP-D as a part of this install, and we look forward to furthering our partnership with them over time. We continue to innovate when it comes to the opportunities that digital cinema presents to enhance the experience for the movie going public, and are determined to ensure that digital cinema and 3D prove themselves to be hugely exciting steps for the Industry.” said Nigel Dennis, Head of European Business Development at Qube Cinema.
