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.
