GDC surpasses the 6500th mark in digital cinema server shipment to customers worldwide
Hong Kong (December 2, 2010) – GDC Technology (“GDC”), a world leading digital cinema solution
provider, is pleased to announce a new milestone has been reached today whereby GDC has successfully delivered more than 6500 digital cinema servers worldwide, serving customers with the
highest quality digital cinema solutions.
Founded more than 11 years ago, GDC is the “oldest” digital cinema server manufacturer in the industry. “Having more than a decade’s experience in this industry, coupled with the largest fleet of service engineers worldwide, allows us to develop the most useful digital cinema technology that not only fulfills,
but exceeds our customers’ expectation,” said Dr Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology.
GDC also achieved record orders from America this year, with close to 2500 servers delivered to customers in the US, Canada and Latin America despite having only started marketing campaign in the
US in early 2009. One explanation for GDC’s recent gain in market share is probably the fact that the
company almost stands alone in the provision of quality and effective digital cinema server technology
that truly addresses the business needs of cinema exhibitors. To date GDC is one of the three server
manufacturers that have been awarded with FIPS 140 certificate needed to be compliant with DCI
specifications. This award ensures the cryptographic modules (which include both hardware and software) in digital cinema servers are secured enough (for the content) against attacks.
On top of GDC’s fast rising sales, there is also exciting news coming from its China operation in that GDC is expanding its presence in China with the launch of a new China headquarters next month. GDC has built the state-of-the-art Network Operations Center (“NOC”) in Shenzhen, China to support and significantly expand its services. The NOC can support and monitor more than 10,000 digital cinema screens simultaneously, creating a nationwide network that allows GDC to continuously strengthen its
industry knowledge and provide its customers the highest quality maintenance services.
“None of these successes would have been possible without the support from our truly valued customers
and dedicated staff,” said Dr Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “This milestone demonstrates our continual growth to which I owe great appreciation to our customers and employees.
Ensuring GDC always meet industry requirements is just one way I intend to provide our customers with the best possible digital cinema technology; and with the largest NOC of its kind in China, our high quality standards will be even more evident in all aspects of GDC’s business, from production to services.”
