QuVIS Serves New All Digital Stadium Cinema in Historic Harrisburg
QuVIS is proud to announce that it has been selected to provide 2D and 3D Digital Cinema JPEG2000 servers for the new Great Escape Digital Stadium Cinema 14 opening today in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The new state-of-the-art multiplex, located in the Harrisburg Mall, will feature 14 all-digital screens with crowd-pleasing stadium seating.
The Grand Opening of this new all-digital theater will commence with a special VIP event on Thursday night followed by the public opening on Friday. On Saturday and Sunday the new Great Escape Theater will host a Charity screening event that will offer free admission for a comprehensive selection of this summer’s biggest blockbusters.
“We are honored to have QuVIS Digital Cinema technology, including the QuVIS Cinema Player™, selected by Great Escape to serve their patrons in this impressive new facility,” QuVIS President and CEO Kenbe Goertzen said. “As a manufacturer of leading-edge technology, we applaud the attention to detail that has gone into providing the movie-going public of Harrisburg with this high-quality and truly comfortable experience.”
QuVIS has provided digital video servers to the Digital Cinema industry from the beginning of commercial deployments in 1999.
The QuVIS Cinema Player™, the central component of QuVIS’ Digital Cinema Network solution, is an elite multi-format playback server that has been designed to meet the performance, security and reliability needed for years of faithful service. The QuVIS Cinema Player not only provides the basic Digital Cinema functionality (e.g. 2K JPEG2000 playback and local content loading) but also features many advanced server capabilities including: 2K playback of a 4K Digital Cinema Composition, Network-based content loading even during active playback, Secure Logging and Reporting, Forensic Watermarking, and Automation programming.
QuVIS QuShow™ provides centralized Show Management services for all screens within the theater network including: Content Distribution Scheduling, Simultaneous Multi-screen Transfers, Show Playlist Authoring, Automation Programming, Show Scheduling, and Report Management.
“The Great Escape Digital Stadium Cinema is a ground-breaking facility that was designed from day one to be a Digital Cinema theater. The era of analogue film is waning as the world transitions to digital technology,” Goertzen said. “QuVIS Digital Cinema products and technology provide the highest-quality solutions for film-to-digital exhibition conversions and new multiplex construction.”
