QuVIS™ Inc. will once again demonstrate its expertise and advanced technology
at IBC2003. For the fifth consecutive year, QuVIS will provide digital cinema
servers and support for their program. QuVIS will also participate in the IBC
Exhibition (Hall 7, Stand 800), demonstrating the newest post-production
capabilities of the QuBit® ST and introducing the new QuBit® DS display server.
IBC is Europe’s premier broadcast technology event held each September at the
Amsterdam RAI Congress Centre. This year’s Exhibition runs September 12 – 16.
QuVIS will début new hardware and software at IBC and demonstrate efficient
solutions for digital intermediate work through 4K. The QuBit Shared Storage (QSS)
system allows the sharing of content among multiple QuBits within a
post-production workflow without the physical transportation of digital media.
QSS provides a format independent platform for standard definition, high
definition and beyond with an upgrade path to 4K - an ideal platform for
incremental introduction of a data based (tapeless) workflow.
Capitalizing on the elegance and efficiency of QuVIS' QPE compression, QSS is
the only practical post-production platform for long format digital intermediate
work. "Many of our customers have hundreds of hours of film sourced material
accumulated during the months a feature is in production." says Jim Graham,
QuVIS' vice president for sales and marketing. "QuBit allows scanning and
manipulation of those data sets in a traditional work flow environment. The
difference lies in 'non-linearizing' the work flow and storing and transporting
the data efficiently while work is in process."
QuBit servers offer alternatives to film and video providing the highest
resolution images available. Used worldwide for digital cinema, post-production,
themed entertainment, 3-D applications, large screen displays, and digital
dailies, QuBit records, stores and plays motion images at the same unsurpassed
image quality that originally earned it the respect of the Hollywood production
and post industries.
Digital screening highlights during IBC will include Walt Disney Pictures'
"Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," and Warner Bros.'
premier of a digitally restored "Robin Hood." Both features will be recorded and
played back by QuBit ST in the RAI auditorium. Another highlight will be the
screening of the breakthrough animated feature film, "Wonderful Days" from
Tinhouse Company of Korea. "Wonderful Days" raises the bar for animation;
combining computer generated 3D imagery, miniature modeling and classic, 2-D
