China Film Group Selects GDC Technology 2k DSR™ Servers For Its Entire Fourth Round Of Digital Cinema Deployment

IBC, Amsterdam (September 12, 2004) – GDC Technology, a leading provider of digital cinema solutions is pleased to announce that China Film Groups has selected GDC Technology’s 2k DSR™ Servers for their entire fourth round of digital cinema deployment comprising ten 2k digital cinema screens.


In China, there are currently fifteen digital cinema theatres (including the Deng XiaoPing Memorial Museum) equipped with GDC Technology’s DSR™ Servers. Together with China Research Institute of
Film Science and Technology, GDC Technology successfully installed China’s first 4k digital cinema theatre comprising three projectors synchronized by three servers with single frame accuracy at the
Deng XiaoPing Memorial Museum.


DSR™ Server is operable with leading 2k DLP Cinema™ projectors and seamlessly integrates with
existing theater automation. GDC Technology produces the world’s first 2k encoder and server specifically designed for digital cinema theater. The DSR™ Encoder and Servers were used in Texas Instruments’ 2K prototype demonstrations at Entertainment Technology Center’s Digital Cinema Lab, Hollywood from Feb 19-21, 2003.


GDC Technology’s 2k DSR™ Server is a software-based in-theater server for digital cinema, HDTV live event and pre-show entertainment applications. The Server performs Hollywood approved 128-bit AES
decryption, decoding and Texas Instruments’ CineLink™ re-encryption in software. With the emerging digital cinema standards being discussed, software upgrade is the best possible way to safeguard investment. The range of DSR™ digital cinema products are engineered by the award winning scientist who invented REVIVAL DIGITAL® digital film processing system that was used in the production of
Twentieth Century Fox (2002) “Kung Pow: Enter the Fist” and digital mastering of numerous movies including New Line Cinema (1995) “Seven”.
