The CSX is the first and only API-driven broadband DCP distribution system powered by IBM Aspera, the most trusted file transfer technology in Hollywood.
The CSX supports electronic DCP delivery of features, trailers, and adverts with a standard DSL, cable, or fibre internet connection. Powered by IBM Aspera for reliability, security and speed: delivering transfer rates up to 1Gbps.
Intuitive 1-step setup process, the CSX connects in minutes to any brand of TMS, IMB, or standalone cinema server by providing a network ingest location across LAN.
While the CSX can be left alone without human interaction, the system can optionally be monitored and controlled through the CineSend Venues web portal, which provides system stats, queued downloads, and other features for both savvy projectionists and non-technical staff.
The CSX system is the first electronic delivery network that is open and accessible to any DCP vendor that wants to leverage the platform’s API.
The CSX is an enterprise-grade 1U rack-mountable device that is rated to have a 10-year+ lifespan. Content is stored on an encrypted RAID array with field-swappable and upgradeable drives, and the entire platform is built with best-in-class security and redundancy.
Connect an optional CSL live stream decoder to your CSX to add support for 2K and 4K live event cinema and eSports streaming. The CSL outputs to HDMI, DVI (video), and AES-3id (audio).
If you need to share your internet connection with other business systems or general office use, set up optional business hours/ time-of-day bandwidth caps to restrict CSX download speeds.
The CSX can be plugged directly into the internet. The device, its integrated storage, and devices on your LAN are protected with a robust firewall that’s pre-configured out of the box.
Installation is as simple as connecting the unit to power, the internet, and your LAN or cinema server. Configure network settings through a step-by-step setup wizard with any device with wi-fi.
Optionally ingest DCP content onto your CSX through two USB3 ports on the front of the unit. You can also export DCPs from the CSX internal storage onto USB3 storage devices.
We’re constantly improving the CSX firmware with new features and performance enhancements. Updates are pushed automatically in the background and are free forever.
