It is specifically designed for in-auditorium installation (with no hush box) in commercial mini-theatres and other venues such as private home cinemas, hotels, private screening rooms, and yachts.
“We are thrilled with the cinema industry’s rapid adoption of Espedeo Supra-5000. We design and manufacture Supra-5000 specifically for the emerging boutique cinema market, which is the driver for the sales growth worldwide,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman, and CEO of GDC Technology Limited. “The mini-theatre and boutique cinema market is quickly growing globally. With Espedeo products, we are delivering the advanced cinema technology to our dealers and customers entering the emerging trend.”
“The launch of a small laser projector for micro cinemas couldn’t have come at a better time. We’re pleased with the bright, vivid image quality, and amazing color of GDC’s Supra-5000. It was easy to mount inside the auditorium which eliminated the cost to build a projection booth,” said Chris Johnson, CEO, Classic Cinemas.
