GDC Technology Enhances Its Line Of DSR™ Servers Capabilities With Launch Of Synchronized Playout Technology
IBC, Amsterdam (September 11, 2004) – GDC Technology, a leading provider of digital cinema solutions introduces a new feature – synchronized playout for its line of DSR™ Servers. Traditionally used in theatres only, the server range of products, namely SA1000 DSR™ Digital Film Server and SZ1000 DSR™ Z Server could be the latest digital solution for three-dimensional (3D) films and multi-screen theatre presentation in museums and theme parks.
DSR™ Servers now have the ability to genlock to various formats of content, providing ease of integration for 3D films and multiple-screen presentation, commonly found in theme parks and museums. More than 10 DSR™ Servers can now be configured as synchronized servers for applications in complex theatrical presentations.
One of the latest additions to GDC Technology’s growing list of customers now includes the Deng XiaoPing Memorial Museum. Along with the China Research Institute of Film Science and Technology (CRIFST), GDC Technology successfully installed a synchronized, multiple-server system in the museum. This enabled China’s first 4k digital cinema theatre comprising multiple projectors synchronized by multiple servers with single frame accuracy.
The 4K (3840 X 1024) images, encoded using EN1000 – DSR™ Digital Film Agile Encoder, are projected with 3 DLP Cinema™ projectors (1.3K each) in synchronization on the large screen, using 3 DSR™ Servers.
