Qube Cinema announced the launch of the new online Qube Cinema web store, where filmmakers, post houses and pre-show content creators can purchase the new QubeMaster Xport Final Cut Studio plug-in. The system, which debuted at NAB in April, enables users to output DCI-compliant Digital Cinema Package (DCP) masters directly from the Final Cut Compressor.
QubeMaster Xport is available in four versions. The QubeMaster Xport 2K, QubeMaster Xport 3D and QubeMaster Xport 4K. Users who need both stereo 3D and 4K mastering, can opt for QubeMaster Xport 4K and 3D. Individual modules can be added after the initial purchase. A fully functioning watermarked demo is also available for download, allowing users to test out the software.
QubeMaster Xport enables Final Cut Pro users to save pre-defined settings as Compressor Droplets and simply drag-and-drop files to create DCI-compliant masters. All of the file formats supported in Final Cut Studio can be output to 2K and 4K, and the software can handle XYZ color space conversions, or apply custom 3D LUTs to source files while encoding.
In June, Qube Cinema will launch a new KDM key generation service, which will allow QubeMaster Xport users to add secure exhibitor keys to their DCPs.
