Qube Cinema Unveils QubeMaster Xport at NABComplete Digital Cinema Mastering for Final Cut Studio (April 11, 2011)
The most recent addition to the QubeMaster line of DCP mastering applications, QubeMaster Xport is a plug-in for Compressor 3.5. QubeMaster Xport utilizes a 64-bit encoding pipeline, critical for encoding the computationally intensive JPEG2000 format, and its multi-threaded architecture takes full advantage of today's multi-core processors. The software includes the necessary color space conversion to the XYZ color space and also has the capability to apply custom 3D LUTs to source files while encoding.
"The QubeMaster technology has delivered DCPs to thousands of theaters around the world," said Eric Bergez, director of sales and marketing at Qube Cinema, "but rather than having to buy expensive dedicated systems, QubeMaster Xport allows FCP users to work within the familiar Final Cut environment at a fraction of the cost."
"This means that anyone who uses Final Cut Studio will now have the means to finish, package and distribute DCPs," explained Bergez. "Because it works inside the Final Cut suite, QubeMaster Xport provides the final step in a complete post-production pipeline. This puts Digital Cinema within reach of filmmakers and facilities."
Pricing and Availability
Pricing for QubeMaster Xport starts at $799 USD, which allows for encoding of 2K DCPs. Stereoscopic 3D and 4K upgrade options are also available. Qube Cinema is offering competitive upgrades for QuVIS Wraptor(tm) license holders.
QubeMaster Xport is available now for download from the Qube Cinema web site at http://www.qubecinema.com/products/xport. The download includes a fully functioning, watermarked demo version to allow for evaluation before purchase. Support for QubeMaster Xport is available at http://www.qubecinema.com/support.
Qube Cinema will unveil a new KDM key generation system this June, which will allow QubeMaster Xport users to provide encrypted DCPs with secure exhibitor keys.
QubeMaster Xport is the most recent addition to the QubeMaster family of Digital Cinema mastering products. QubeMaster Pro is a comprehensive mastering system aimed at high-end post facilities and distribution service providers. QubeMaster Xpress is a user-friendly standalone Windows-based DCP mastering application.
Qube Cinema will present QubeMaster Xport at the Final Cut User Group SuperMeet at Bally's in Las Vegas on Tuesday, April 11 and at the Qube Cinema booth (#C10514A) in the 3D Pavilion in Central Hall during NAB at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 11-14.
