QubeMaster Xpress available in North America, Europe


Mumbai: Qube Cinema announced the availability of its latest offering QubeMaster Xpress in the North American and European markets. The powerful and easy-to-use QubeMaster Xpress software provides users the ability to convert slides into ready-to-use Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) that will work on any Digital Cinema Server.

Aimed at theatres equipped with digital cinema systems, QubeMaster Xpress allows statutory messages, custom slides and local commercials to be easily produced in-house. This can happen even without any prior experience in the complexities of digital cinema mastering.

Visitors to the Cinema Expo International convention being held on 23-26 June at the RAI in Amsterdam can purchase the software from Booth #342 at a special show price.

QubeMaster Xpress guides the user through the process of converting JPEG and BMP images; flash animations; and AVI and QuickTime movies into standards compliant DCPs in the DCI JPEG2000 format. Three easy steps are all it takes – choose one or more files; configure the picture and sound; name the composition and hit go.

Qube Cinema president and CTO Rajesh Ramachandran says, "We tried to take all of the power, flexibility and speed we had in our QubeMaster Pro product for post-houses and bring that to the user in a package that anyone could use without any advanced digital cinema knowledge. We hope QubeMaster Xpress helps spread digital cinema far and wide."

QubeMaster Xpress runs on any desktop or laptop computer with a dual-core processor running the Windows XP Professional, Vista Business or Vista Ultimate operating systems. A Mac OS X version is also under development.
