CineCert, a Burbank-based technology firm, will be showcasing two new products, Lihue and Koloa at the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas in April. The products are designed for digital cinema mastering facilities, digital cinema network operators and motion picture theaters globally.

John Hurst, co-founder and CTO of CineCert, will also be speaking on April 6 at the NAB Technology Summit in Cinema, an event co-produced with SMPTE.

Lihue, a DCP volume management system, and Koloa, a digital cinema key management system, are the latest additions to CineCert’s flagship products, which include mature, enterprise class Waimea digital cinema key management and Wailua digital cinema mastering systems.

“With the release of Lihue and Koloa,” said Hurst, “we are responding to the global demand for new standalone digital cinema management solutions, easy to use, flexible and scalable.”

Lihue is a reliable and robust DCP duplication and testing solution, allowing users to create an industry standard distribution volume from an unformatted hard disk. With its intuitive browser-based user interface, optimized for tablets and easy to configure for remote monitoring, users can inspect, copy, modify and analyze DCP volumes in full compliance with industry standards. Lihue can also repair DCP errors such as broken or missing asset maps or packing lists. The basic configuration includes Lihue client software preloaded on an appliance with two CRU-115 drive bays and multiple high-speed USB ports in a low-profile desktop case. The Lihue architecture can scale to hundreds of disks, providing a turnkey solution for virtually any workload.

Koloa digital cinema key management system offers an easy to use browser-based interface, optimized for mobile devices, for managing screen locations, bookings and KDM creation for digital cinema. It is the perfect solution for small and medium digital cinema distribution facilities and distributors looking to manage location information, booking and screening schedules, digital cinema certificates and KDMs. Once a booking is prepared, KDMs can be generated with a single click. In addition, Koloa is a validating KDM generator able to validate device certificates using the root certificates previously installed by the users. Koloa was introduced to the market late 2013 and has been adopted by several international digital cinema distribution providers for their management of keys and bookings.
