QSC’s CMS-5000 cinema media server has met all of the requirements of the Digital Cinema System Specification Version 1.2 published by Digital Cinema Initiatives, the company announced today. This certification validates that the next-generation cinema media server can reliably play controlled digital cinema content in movie theatres around the world and can reproduce high-quality images and sound as well as secure the content against piracy.
The certification testing was conducted by Aegisolve, an accredited cybersecurity laboratory under the Cryptographic and Security Testing Laboratory Accreditation Program and licensed by DCI for digital cinema equipment compliance testing.
"DCI compliance means QSC has taken a significant step towards the secure presentation of digital cinema content," said Barry Ferrell, vice president, cinema product development and strategy. "Achieving DCI compliance assures that the CMS-5000 is a trusted part of the digital cinema ecosystem worldwide. This certification provides a strong foundation for sale of the CMS-5000, the first QSC-branded cinema server and the only server with native Q-SYS network compatibility."
