Qube Cinema Brings 120 fps 3D to CinemaCon

Streaming High Frame Rate Stereoscopic Content from One DCP to Dual Projectors

Today at CinemaCon, Qube Cinema demonstrated dual-projector 120 fps stereoscopic 3D playback during the Filmmaker’s Lunch with a panel that included Ang Lee and Martin Scorsese.

The demonstration used two stacked Barco projectors to show a combined 240 fps projection driven by a single Qube XP-I server sending 120 fps per eye to the Qube Xi IMBs in the two projectors. The demonstration featured test footage from the Fraunhofer Institute.

“Delivering two streams of 120 fps from a single source is a first in digital cinema,” said Eric Bergez, Qube Cinema’s director of sales and marketing for the Americas. “Qube is not only showing that technology for the new HFR films is ready but demonstrating how far this technology can take you with currently shipping products.”

“When you see HFR 3D at 48 and 60 fps for each eye, you can really appreciate the tremendous improvement over 3D at 24 fps,” said Rajesh Ramachandran, president of Qube Cinema, “but 120 fps 3D truly blows everything else away. Filmmakers can now be truly liberated from the barriers that technology has imposed - with no visual artifacts."

Visitors to CinemaCon can see the new Qube technology first-hand at booth #2013 at Caesars Palace. For more information about Qube or to schedule a demo at CinemaCon, contact Eric Bergez
