Qube XP-I server and Xi IMB achieve DCI compliance

Dec 10, 2012

Qube Cinema announced that its XP-I digital-cinema server and Xi 4K Integrated Media Block (IMB) have passed the DCI Compliance Test Plan (CTP). The server-IMB combination accommodates 4K resolution and is equipped for high-frame-rate (HFR) exhibition.

The DCI compliance testing was conducted by CineCert. To pass the CTP, the Qube XP-I streamed 2K and 4K DCP content to the Xi IMB embedded in a Barco DP4K-32B DCI-compliant projector. The Qube XP-I server now joins the Qube XP-D server, which achieved DCI certification earlier this year.

The XP-I server is capable of streaming up to one Gbps of data from a single DCP to two synchronized Xi 4K IMBs imbedded in two projectors for 4K 3D cinema at up to 60 fps (30 fps per eye) and in 2K 3D at up to 240 fps (120 fps per eye). The XP-I streams data through a dual Gigabit Ethernet interface to the Ethernet-based Xi 4K IMB, ensuring that there is no limitation on the distance between the server and projector. The Xi 4K IMB is installed in numerous commercial locations worldwide with DLP Cinema projectors from all of the TI OEMs and supports HD, 2K, 4K and 3D content in DCI-compliant formats.

The modularized third-generation Qube XP software gives a common user experience for setup, operation and maintenance of both the XP-I and XP-D servers. This allows XP-D users to upgrade easily to the XP-I and Xi IMB to accommodate 4K resolution and higher frame rates. With their high-bit-rate throughput and ability to work transparently with dual projectors, the XP-I server and Xi 4K IMB also fulfill the needs of giant-screen exhibition.

The XP-I digital cinema server and Xi 4K IMB are available from Qube Cinema and its worldwide network of resellers. For more information, visit www.qubecinema.com.
