GDC’s Digital Cinema Server included in AccessIT’s Approved Digital Cinema Equipment List
USA (Oct 8, 2008) – GDC is pleased to announce that its best-selling digital cinema server has been included in the approved digital equipment list of AccessIT, the global leader in providing integrated solutions for digital cinema.
The move will help GDC gain a stronger foothold in the fast-growing North American market where a few major digital cinema rollout programs led by AccessIT are scheduled to take place in the near future. These include a “Phase Two” deployment program backed by four major U.S studios which will see a rollout of 10,000 systems throughout the U.S. and Canada over the next three years, following the success of its earlier deployment of 3700 systems nationwide. GDC’s SA-2100 servers have been rigorously tested and evaluated by AccessIT, and proven to seamlessly interface with AccessIT’s industry-leading digital cinema operating system Theatre Command Center® software (TCC) and Library Management Server® (LMS).
“AccessIT is committed to providing comprehensive vendor neutral solutions to our customers. It is one of our highest priorities to select vendors who will help us fulfill our commitment of operating excellence to our digital cinema exhibitor and distributor partners. Through our internal testing process and their proven performance in theatres around the world we have seen that GDC’s LINUX-based servers can meet that commitment,” said Chuck Goldwater, President of AccessIT Media Services Group.
“GDC is honored to be included in AccessIT’s approved digital cinema equipment list. GDC shall strive to serve the world’s largest digital cinema deployment company with quality product and uncompromised support,” said Dr Man-Nang CHONG, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “This arrangement will create a win-win situation for both GDC and AccessIT.”
