The new features include broadband and satellite delivery to theatres,
Wire Safe™, SMPTE FLM format support and an
interesting data visualisation feature, What’s-on-Wire
Product demonstrations will be available to delegates at Qube Cinema’s booth #2614A on the trade show floor.
Broadband and satellite delivery to theatres
– Introducing the Qube Wire Theater
Appliance, a cloud connected in-theater system to enable directdigital delivery of DCPs to
the cinema. The appliance includes 4 TB of internal storage and can be
networked directly to digital cinema servers and TMS systems. Featuring a low
profile 1U chassis, the Qube Wire Theatre Appliance works with both satellite
and broadband delivery modes. The Qube Wire theatre appliance can receive DCPs
multicast using the proven QubeCast™ media transmission system.
• Universal Inbox – The powerful new
Universal Inbox on Qube Wire provides exhibitors with visibility into the
detailed status of all their content and KDMs. The Exhibitor can sign into Qube
Wire Cinemas at any time to look at a dashboard with real-time status of
content transfers and all KDMs for their theatres.
• SMPTE FLM-x data feed – In
addition to the de facto Facility
List Message (FLM) implementation most common throughout the industry, Qube Wire now hosts theatre information in
the latest SMPTE format; the Extended FLM data, as recently published in the SMPTE
ST430-16-2017 specification document. These FLM-x data feeds are provided free
for all exhibitors using the Qube Wire service.
• Wire Safe™ –
the most security conscious studios, Qube Wire now provides the option of a
dedicated and exclusive Hardware Security Module (HSM) redundant cluster for
all of their security operations, including private key storage and key
generation processes. The Wire Safe™ option gives users full control over their
critical security elements, including complete physical isolation. The Wire Safe™ HSM units comprising the redundant
cluster can be hosted on premises, with a cloud provider, or both.
Key Vault Integration
integrates with DCIP’s Key Vault, thus enabling the automatic and reliable
delivery of keys all the way into the Playback system and/or TMS, at locations
using DCIP’s key delivery system.
Qube Wire has integrated support for MACCS TDL information. This bridges the
gap between theatre information held by MACCS and Qube Wire, and it is an
important step towards seamless integration between the two platforms, leading to
fully automated DCP Delivery and KDM Management for users of the MACCS Booking system.
on Wire (WOW)
on Wire is a dashboard that allows Qube Wire users to see an interactive view
of their content flow in various territories around the globe. This is a real-time
view of content delivery status that would provide useful at-a-glance
information for distributors.
“Qube Wire’s new features will deliver to the global
exhibitor, distributor and production community, a seamless digital cinema
distribution experience,” said Senthil Kumar, Co-founder of Qube Cinema. “We
will continue to add more innovative features to Qube Wire, as we strive to
offer the most secure, fast, reliable and cost-effective service across the globe.”
