3.8+ million KDM’s delivered across 138 countries

2023 – Qube Wire’s most phenomenal year in delivering KDM’s

We talk often about the impressive amount of content that gets sent via Qube Wire, but Qube Wire also delivers an impressive amount of KDMs. A Key Delivery Message (KDM) is required to play an encrypted movie – each KDM enables one version of the movie to play on a target playback device for a specified duration. In 2023, Qube Wire delivered over 3.8 million KDMs across 138 countries.

Qube Wire has revolutionized digital cinema distribution by offering a centralized platform for KDM management and delivery. Through its user-friendly, cloud-hosted web interface, distributors can seamlessly upload encrypted content and generate KDMs tailored to individual theatres or screening events. Qube Wire's robust encryption algorithms and secure transmission protocols safeguard KDMs against interception or tampering.

Qube is also proud of the size and scope of our Trusted Device List database used to make and send these KDMs. As of December 2023, Qube Wire has mapped and managed server details for over 185,000 screens at over 53,000 theatres.
