Qube Wire has introduced the Virtual WireTAP, a software system that can be installed on a cinema’s existing hardware to connect the theatre to Qube Wire’s global cloud delivery platform directly. With it, the company says, cinemas can leverage their existing infrastructure to connect to Qube Wire.
The company says that, as with the WireTAP and the WireTAP Air before, the Virtual WireTAP is easy to install and operate.
Mark Waterston, senior vice president, Qube Wire said, “Some theatres wanted the quick and easy delivery of content via Qube Wire, but they didn’t want to install another box in their booth. The Virtual WireTAP allows theatres to use the extra storage that they already have to connect to Qube Wire.”
The Virtual WireTAP can be installed on the theatre’s existing hardware and includes all the features and convenience of the current WireTAP. This includes fully automated storage management, intelligent KDM routing and delivery, real-time delivery status monitoring via the Qube Wire portal and failsafe automatic firmware updates.
The Virtual WireTAP is already deployed across four theatre chains in three countries – USA, Brazil, and India.
Nigel Dennis, senior vice president, global sales added, "We’ve listened to the feedback from exhibitors, and this certainly opens up more opportunity. Our market coverage is growing day by day; Qube’s electronic delivery now counts for thousands of sites worldwide including our recent expansion across Southeast Asia.”
