The first commercial installation of Qube Cinema’s single-server 4K 3D system has been completed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Using a single Qube XP-I server, the new configuration streams 4K image data to two Barco 4K projectors each with its own Qube Xi 4K Integrated Media Block (IMB). Visitors can now enjoy stunning 3D digital imagery on the giant screen, delivered from a system that is much easier to operate than the 70 mm film setup the museum used previously.
