KenCast Unveils New CinemaPro 2RU Light at IBC
KenCast will introduce
the CinemaPro 2RU appliance at IBC Show in Amsterdam, a lighter and more
compact version of its 3RU standard digital cinema appliance. KenCast will also
be exhibiting updates on their world-leading
Fazzt® digital delivery solutions, including live streaming video, distance
learning and signage.
The new 2RU model of the CinemaPro digital cinema
appliance is designed for theaters with less demanding storage and redundancy
requirements. The CinemaPro 2RU Light is a 2-rack unit equipped with 4Tbytes of
storage provided by 4 HDD bays of which 2 are installed with 2 Tbyte HDDs (storage is expandable from
4Tbytes to 8 Tbytes or higher, with more HDDs and/or large HDDs),
a portable HDD to conveniently import and export content, and a solid state
drive for the OS and program control.
CEO Bill Steele and
staff will be on hand to chat, demonstrate and answer your questions regarding
the CinemaPro models and other KenCast technology.
The DCDC CinemaPro appliance is currently used
by top-grossing movie houses in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia,
choosing to upgrade to state-of-the-art content distribution capability for
optimal delivery of Hollywood first-run movies to theatres. The CinemaPro is
compatible with all digital theatre management systems, including most legacy
systems, and enables delivery by satellite or fiber optics of very large movie
files and streaming of live events. The CinemaPro also offers simultaneous
recording of live events for "time-shifting" with its DVR features,
allowing staggered delivery to multiple screens in a cineplex, as well as
recording of the event for later play out.
