Reliable Cost-Effective Digital Cinema Mastering

Los Angeles: August 11, 2011... Qube Cinema, developers of the QubeMaster digital cinema mastering applications, today announced full compatibility of the QubeMaster Xport plugin with Apple Compressor 4. With QubeMaster Xport and Apple's $49 rendering utility, filmmakers, postproduction facilities and pre-show content creators can reliably and cost-effectively master Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) for film festivals and theatrical distribution. "Rather than requiring the whole Final Cut Suite(r), anyone with a Mac can now master their digital cinema content, regardless of what editing application they use," said Eric Bergez, director of sales and marketing at Qube Cinema. "Compressor 4 is a great application and we highly recommend it to our customers." "Creating flawless DCPs is technically complex, and used to require expensive equipment, which only the big players could afford," explained Bergez. "QubeMaster Xport simplifies the process, removes the cost hurdle, and levels the playing field for everyone." "Our goal is to empower the small post houses or independent filmmaker and provide them with the tools to distribute their stories," he added. "The Digital Cinema Package format is quickly becoming the standard for exhibition and film festivals. With Compressor 4 and QubeMaster Xport, production companies, documentary makers, postproduction facilities and even film students can now master their own DCP's for the cost of a couple of film prints." Compressor 4 is sold as a stand-alone application online at the Apple App Store. QubeMaster Xport also works with Compressor 3.5, a component of the Final Cut Suite. QubeMaster Xport is available at

. QubeMaster Xport 2K retails for $799. 3D and 4K modules can be added, and combined, for $999 per module. A fully functioning demo is also available for downloading.

Bluebell Triple Stack Silhouette

Bluebell Opticom at the 2018 NAB Show

At the 2018 NAB Show, Bluebell will demonstrate the Silhouette line of rugged, deployable, high-density, mixed-technology media converters. The heart of the Silhouette power-insertion product family for robotic cameras in remote production scenarios, the Silhouette is a fully integrated 4K UHD robotic head system that works with SD-SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and 4K UHD cameras to provide power and control to the camera head and fibre optic connectivity for the remote-control panel. As a result, operators no longer need to rely on stadium power. The customizable Silhouette comes in three sizes and can accommodate any combination of 4K HDR, quad 3G-SDI, trilevel sync, GigE, serial data control, communications, IFB, and multichannel audio signals. Customers can choose to get power from a 12V DC supply, a V-Mount battery, a hybrid cable, or a combination of the three. Introduced at IBC2017, Silhouette units are deployed all over the world in sports, theatre, and music venues.
