Qube Cinema will introduce QubeTouch, a new graphical user interface (GUI) that works with all of its digital cinema servers, at ShowEast (Nov. 5-8, 2012 in Hollywood, Fla.). QubeTouch is an interactive server interface that uses either a web-based or Android app. As a result, theatre managers and projectionists now have a reliable, intuitive and interactive way to monitor their shows.
"QubeTouch has an extensive set of features that enhance server operation," said Rajesh Ramachandran, president and CTO of Qube Cinema. "Intuitive dialogs, common action icons and buttons allow users to easily manage media and keys, automate show schedules and adjust system configuration settings."
QubeTouch offers convenient access to everyday functions such as basic show and playback controls, as well as advanced system health monitoring and usage information.
QubeTouch comes as a touch-enabled HTML5 web app built into the Qube server and is accessible on all browsers, including those on the iPad and other tablets. QubeTouch Remote is an Android application that will be available soon at the Google Play app store, where it will be free for a limited time. As a standards-based platform, QubeTouch does not require a dedicated management system or a proprietary touch panel, ensuring low cost and high productivity.
Visitors to ShowEast can see the new QubeTouch first-hand at booth #920 at the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Fla., Nov. 5-8, 2012. Qube Cinema also will be showing the XP-I server, Xi IMB and the mastering capabilities of QubeMaster Xport and QubeMaster Xpress 2 at ShowEast.

The western states, as a whole, are filled with more scenery than people. There are, of course, pockets of population that skew that logic – Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas, and a few other cities – and they tend to be very urban areas, filled with views that can be found in cities east or west, But the grandeur of the land away from the cities is what attracts film makers from all over the world.Read more...
In the western United States, studios and soundstages often come with a distinguished Hollywood heritage. In Santa Fe, N.M., Garson Studios was founded by an Academy Award-winning actress. In Hollywood, Fox Studios carries the cachet of one of the legendary major studios. Moving north, the stages of San Rafael, Calif.’s 32TEN Studios once hosted Lucasfilm blockbusters, while the new Reno Tahoe Studios in Nevada seeks to establish its own heritage as production incentives promise to attract film and TV business to the state.Read more...

A blue sky sprawls between ridges frosted in deep evergreen, framing Alder Gulch much as when Native American tribes traversed this landscape 800 years ago. The town of Virginia City sprang up virtually overnight in the summer of 1863; within one year, it was the largest city in the Inland Northwest, with an estimated 10,000 residents. These days, few people continue seeking gold in Alder Gulch. But for filmmakers seeking ready-made Old West locations, the towns of Virginia City and Nevada City offer one more chance to strike it rich.
