GDC and DVIDEA Solution Expands Choice and Interoperability for Digital Cinema Exhibitors
Hong Kong (February 9, 2011) – Dvidea today announced that GDC’s SX-2000A Digital Cinema Server with Integrated Media Block and GDC’s SX-2001A Digital Cinema Server can now successfully integrate with Dvidea Cineasy™ Theater Management System (TMS) software. The new integration optimizes interoperability for all digital cinema deployments, making theater operations simple, robust, and fully flexible for the exhibitors as they make the transition to digital cinema.
Using Dvidea Cineasy™ software solution, exhibitors are now able to seamlessly operate GDC’s range of
stunning D-Cinema servers, manage content and keys, schedule shows, control projection devices, report logs, automate processes, exchange media and data with interoperable D-Cinema servers of any other brand within the same facility.
Under this new partnership, GDC Digital Cinema servers not only expand in technical diversity but are also now fluent in several European languages as Dvidea Cineasy™ TMS is already localized in Spanish, French, Dutch, English, Italian, Russian, and German (Swedish and Portuguese planned for Q1 2011).
GDC Digital Cinema servers and Dvidea Cineasy™ TMS have been designed for circuits as well as for small independent theaters. This integration marks another step toward interoperability and expands the choices for all digital cinema exhibitors.
“Dvidea is honored to be working closely with GDC’s quality products and dedicated expert team. GDC’s
company history and track record of success prove that, like Dvidea, their customers’ needs and expectations are of utmost importance to the company and almost always met. We look forward to developing this exciting new relationship,” said William Sully, co-founder and CEO of Dvidea.
By choosing best of breed hardware and software solutions from technology leaders such as GDC and
DVIDEA, theater owners benefit from better interoperability, significantly improved performance, and a lower total cost of ownership. “We are delighted to work with Dvidea, a clear market leader for digital cinema TMS software in Europe,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “The partnership signifies the strategic alliance between two industry leaders whereby the complementary technical strengths of both companies can be leveraged to bring high performance solutions to our customers. Coinciding with GDC’s current fast expansion in Europe, this alliance could not have come at a better time.”
