Espedeo Supra-5000 RGB Plus laser phosphor cinema projector selected by Projector Central’s editorial staff for its compact design and technical features that open many doors for home theater integrators.


HONG KONG, June 22, 2021 — GDC Technology Limited (‘GDC’), a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today that its Espedeo Supra-5000 RGB Plus laser phosphor cinema projector won the prestigious Projection Expo 2021 “Best of Show” award, selected by the editorial staff of Projector Central. Manufactured by GDC Technology in cooperation with Appotronics and Texas Instruments, this groundbreaking all-in-one projection system is specifically designed for commercial mini-theatre operators and home private cinema integrators to install the compact, extremely quiet and lightweight projection system on the ceiling with its Espedeo VM-1140 VESA Ceiling Mount.


Through July 15, Projection Expo was showcasing more than 130 new products and services from 23 of the best-known projector and screen manufacturers and resellers, covering the latest cutting-edge technology for professional installations and residential home theaters. Projection Expo “Best of Show” Award honorees were selected after analyzing show entries for criteria that included:

  • A notable achievement in performance specifications
  • Innovative or unusual technical design features that benefit usability, flexibility or efficiency of set-up, or ongoing maintenance needs
  • Advantages in size, form factor, or visual design
  • Unusual value at the product’s assigned introductory street price

The award-winning projector was described by the editorial staff as there’s nothing out there that’s quite like GDC’s Espedeo Supra-5000, a 5,000-lumen, 2K-resolution laser projector that distinguishes itself in both the cinema and high-end home theater worlds by coming equipped with all the internals to play the first-run, copy-protected Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) packaged content hosted by your local movie theatres. Along with achieving full DCI-P3 color gamut, the Supra-5000 is built on a compact chassis and designed for quiet operation (less than 35dbA) for mounting directly inside mini-theatres, screening rooms, yachts, or other confined spaces. It is all made possible by GDC’s proprietary technology that integrates a DCI-compliant media server, an integrated cinema processor, and a DMD formatter board on one circuit card.

“Home theater integrators from all around the world today diverse their offerings that cover both the residential and commercial markets. The Projection Expo 2021 Best of Show Awards presented helps integrators to filter out projectors during their product decision-making process by identifying the best of the best in new projector and screen technology. We are honored to share the spotlight with the other honorees,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology Limited.
