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
