Qube Cinema—Definitely Doing Dolby (Of SatBroadcasting™ Interest—Digital Cinema)

[SatNews] Qube Cinema has been licensed to support Dolby® Atmos™ playback in its servers—the Qube XP-D and XP-I digital cinema servers are the first in the Qube server line to be evaluated to support Dolby Atmos playback with software updates expected to be available in early 2014.

Dolby Atmos unleashes the potential of sound in storytelling by giving filmmakers the ability to precisely place or move sounds anywhere in the movie theater, even overhead, to create the most engaging cinematic experience ever. Dolby Atmos has rapidly become the preferred sound format of award-winning filmmakers, major studios and exhibitors the world over. The addition of Dolby Atmos functionality to the Qube servers will improve the movie-going experience for audiences by enabling an accurate reproduction of the filmmakers’ original intent for the audio experience. With just a server software update exhibitors will be able to play back the new audio format and provide movie-goers with a superior sound experience.
