The CinemaPro 2RU is a leading product many exhibitors worldwide have selected to receive digital content from the Hollywood studios. It is an economical solution for theatres whose storage and redundancy requirements are not as demanding as the CinemaPro 3RU. The 2RU’s technology provides the same program as the 3RU with full network management, remote upgrades/enhancements, and follows the same roadmap as the 3RU as architected by the Hollywood studios.
The 2RU appliance supports reception, storage and validation of digital cinema packages (movies) as well as live streams. The CinemaPro 2RU can also manage multiple live events with simultaneous recording and time-shifting, using the built in DVR feature. This allows for live video delivery to multiple screens and recording of the event for later play outs to other screens.
The CinemaPro uses KenCast’s innovative content delivery technologies including Fazzt Forward Error Correction (Fazzt FEC®), validation, accelerated delivery using Blazeband™, split/join channel capacity, and the missed packet collector allowing for efficient retransmissions of missed data.
The 2-rack unit appliance is equipped with two gigabit Ethernet interfaces for multiple network operation, a portable HDD to conveniently import and export content, and a solid state drive to periodically update the OS and add feature enhancements. The CinemaPro interfaces readily to leading theatre management systems, and is designed for simultaneous reception, QA and forwarding at speeds up to 200 Megabits/s over satellite and 400 Megabits/s over fiber.
