GDC Technology’s New Integrated Media Block (IMB) achieves DCI compliance

Hong Kong (September 28, 2012) – GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world-leading digital cinema solution provider, is delighted to announce today that GDC Tech’s new Integrated Media Block (“IMB”) with digital cinema servers including SX-3000A, SX-2000AR, and SX-2000TR models are now compliant with the Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) digital cinema system specifications, pursuant to compliance testing as conducted by Keio University, an entity licensed for compliance testing by DCI.

GDC Tech’s groundbreaking SX-3000A and SX-2000AR/ TR IMBs support high frame rate (“HFR”) playback in both 2D and 3D (at 48 and 60 frames per second per eye), as well as 2K and 4K resolution. In addition, they also feature Intopix decoding technology capable of playing compression bit rates of up to 500 Mb/s for all color components and delivers second to none playback quality for HFR 3D content. They also support built-in digital connectivity for alternative content. Furthermore, they feature long-distance content streaming and remote access via gigabit Ethernet, which can significantly simplify cinema multiplex operations with standalone architecture.

“We are extremely pleased to confirm that our new IMB has passed all applicable CTP requirements for DCI compliance,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, and CEO of GDC Tech. “As an accredited and trusted global digital cinema service provider with over 20,000 servers installed worldwide, we are determined to offer exhibitors the most cutting-edge and reliable technology. Thanks to GDC Tech’s feature-rich products and track record of earning customer trust over the years, GDC Tech has received orders of approximately 3,000 units of DCI-compliant new IMBs to be delivered over the next 12 months. We are confident that we will continue to contribute to the industry with premium-quality digital cinema solutions.”
