Digital Cinema Manufacturer Establishes Technical Support Presence for Cinema Owners
Melbourne, Australia: May 7, 2013. . . Qube Cinema announced the appointment of Lewis Thorne as their official Level 2 technical support specialist for Australia and New Zealand. Thorne brings many years of experience in the digital cinema industry to his new position, strengthening Qube's presence in the region. Users of Qube Cinema's digital cinema servers, Integrated Media Blocks (IMBs), and postproduction mastering and distribution products now have full local technical support.
"Lewis has a thorough knowledge of Qube's XP-D and XP-I digital cinema servers and the Xi 4K IMB," said Raja Enok, director of sales and marketing for Qube Cinema in Asia. "He's been involved in the field testing of the XP-D server and Xi IMBs, and has worked with independent cinema owners in the area for a long time."
Both the XP-D and XP-I are DCI certified, using Qube's version 3.0 server software, which provides a common user experience for setup, operation and maintenance for either server while integrating seamlessly with all theater management system software including the Cinedigm TCC. The XP-I and Xi 4K IMB are compatible with Series 2 DLP projectors. XP-D users can easily upgrade to the XP-I and Xi IMB to accommodate 4K resolution, higher frame rates and 3D content. The DCI upgrade for Qube servers in the field will be coordinated by the Independent Cinema Association of Australia's Network Operations Centre (ICAA NOC) and be conducted by Thorne in conjunction with each cinema's usual maintenance provider.
"Lewis is well-known to many ICAA cinema owners and understands the support requirements of independent cinemas and their equipment," Enok explained. "We're excited to see things growing so quickly in Australia and New Zealand."
