Another lurker here, a cine exhibitor at a remote place in India. Professionally I'm an electronics engineer with software and embedded system experience.
For a long time, to be precise, since May 2009 I've been looking at developing an end to end open source system from creating DCPs to exhibiting via an open server hardware. It all happened when my choice was limited to Qube and UFO, who's monopolized the indian film distribution/exhibition system I plan to set up a website with my ideas and would appreciate help from like minded people out here.
Has anyone built a server from scratch and is there any reference design ?
