SX-3000 Standalone IMB®
The revolutionary SX-3000 Standalone IMB® is GDC Technology’s flagship product which was released in the market early this year. The SX-3000 Standalone IMB® is an industry first, with prominent features including the elimination of the need for a file server, which significantly reduces energy consumption, as well as operation and maintenance costs for exhibitors. The SX-3000 Standalone IMB® is equipped with complete alternative content support options such as HDMI (for 2D and 3D content), 3D-SGI ports, and live streaming* which allows flexibility to display a wide variety of advertising and alternative content without additional hardware. These new state-of-the-art options will greatly simplify theatre operations and can reduce investment costs.
The SX-3000 Standalone IMB® comes with a cost-effective, reliable, and scalable external storage solution, serving differing exhibitor needs, namely (i) a portable storage system which is comprised of a compact and light storage device that can be easily mounted on all types of DLP Cinema® projectors with up to 3TB of redundant hot-swappable storage and (ii) enterprise storage solution which offers exhibitors with larger and cost-effective storage capacity – up to 8TB of redundant hot-swappable storage. The enterprise storage system is designed to be inserted into the projector pedestal. GDC Technology will showcase both the portable and enterprise storage solutions at ShowEast 2013.
