The EdgeSpan CinemaPro is Hollywood’s preferred product for the digital cinema industry, currently used by top-grossing movie houses. It is the premier choice for upgrading to state-of-the-art content distribution capability for optimal delivery of first-run movies from the Hollywood studios to cineplexes and theaters worldwide.
The CinemaPro 3RU is compatible with all digital theater management systems, including legacy systems, and enables delivery by satellite or fiber optics of very large movie files and streaming of live events. It also offers simultaneous recording of live events for “time-shifting” with its DVR features, allowing staggered delivery to multiple screens in a cineplex, as well as recording of the event for later play out. The CinemaPro’s DVR-style management features of recording and time shifting for live events affords more screen play options — and that means more ticket sales.
The EdgeSpan CinemaPro comes in both 2 and 3-rack unit configurations, accepting multiple satellite feeds, or fiber delivered content. It can handle content at entertainment speeds exceeding 400Mbps. The CinemaPro may be configured to provide internal storage of up to 16 TBytes, interfacing with the theater management system via Ethernet LAN. External storage can provide additional capacity.
