“We’re excited to be showing the QuVIS Digital Cinema System at NAB.
This is the first commercially available DCI-compatible JPEG2000 4K cinema
system and offers exhibitors true flexibility with the ability to deploy a
mixture of 2K and 4K. The QuVIS Ovation 4K, for the fixed display market and non

multiple servers to create very large images,” said Jim Graham, QuVIS’ VP of

The QuVIS Digital Cinema System™ delivers unsurpassed image quality to the
silver screen using DCI JPEG2000, or its own patented wavelet compression
technology, Quality Priority Encoding (QPE™). The system architecture supports
resolutions through 4K and provides transparent
real-time playback of a 2K image from a 4K master and optional 3D.
In addition to film-resolution playback, the QuVIS Digital Cinema System™
supports current video broadcast standards including High Definition and
Standard Definition at guaranteed quality levels. The systems approach includes
integrated support for automation control and audio, as well as optional show
and theatre management system components.
Designed for applications requiring outstanding motion image quality, but with a
wider variety of interfaces and applications, the QuVIS Ovation™ is the ultimate
video server for large screen fixed display use. With options that include 3D
and multi-screen frame accurate synchronous playback it fits seamlessly into
applications for trade shows, museums, theme parks and entertainment venues. The
third generation QuVIS Ovation supports more than 50 video and graphics formats,
is both reliable and easy to use.
"QuVIS has developed and patented technology specifically targeted for digital
cinema for over a decade. QuVIS pioneered wavelet-based quality priority cinema
systems, flexible cinematic playback of wavelet based 2K and 4K image
resolutions, 3D, subtitling, low-rate temporal wavelet encoding and advanced
audio capabilities for cinema applications," Kenbe Goertzen, CEO, QuVIS, said.

which includes the QuVIS Acuity™ and QuVIS QuStudio™ for post production,
