GDC Technology Provides Exceptional Digital Cinema Solutions at ShowEast 2014
SHOWEAST, Hollywood (October 24, 2014) –GDC Technology Limited (“GDC Technology”), a world-leading digital cinema solutions provider, will showcase its unparalleled digital cinema solutions at ShowEast 2014 in Hollywood, Florida, October 27–30.
SX–3000 Standalone IMB®
As the industry’s first standalone IMB, the SX–3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block® (SX–3000 IMB) sets the standard for simple and hassle–free digital cinema solutions. The SX–3000 IMB significantly lowers operation, maintenance, and installation costs by eliminating the need for an external file server –while offering High Frame Rate (“HFR”) capability in both 2D and 3D, live 3D support, digital connectivity for alternative content such as 3G HD–SDI and HDMI input with image–scaling.
To complete GDC’s IMB solution, GDC’s Portable Storage, Enterprise Storage, and the new Enterprise Storage Plus are dedicated storage devices designed to work for a long time (optional 10-year warranty is available) with the SX–3000 IMB. The Enterprise Storage devices provide large storage options of up to 8TB of redundant hot-swappable storage, which can store approximately 76 movies. The new Enterprise Storage Plus retains all power features of Enterprise Storage plus a built–in CRU port for faster content ingestion.
CLA–2000 Content Library Adapter
The new CLA–2000 Content Library Adapter (CLA–2000) is a highly reliable content ingest and backup solution that simplifies theatre operations. With the CLA–2000, users can transfer content from one single source to multiple storage devices simultaneously, ingest content from a Linux based CRU hard disk to a Windows-based LMS server, transfer content easily from one single hard disk, for example from a CRU, to a backup storage device such as GDC Portable Storage or Enterprise Storage. CLA–2000also provides system flexibility with the 2 USB ports and 2 eSATA ports. All these functions give exhibitors the flexibility to transfer, ingest, and backup content with or without TMS.
QMS–1000 Quality Management System
QMS–1000 Quality Management System is designed for cinema screening quality monitoring and control. It performs automatic monitor and data analysis of luminance, chromaticity, and sound–pressure level with reports in multiple formats and carries out intelligent and automatic adjustments to ensure a high-quality movie experience. Moreover, it can be integrated seamlessly with GDC Technology’s TMS–1000 Theatre Management System.
VPF Program for Latin American Exhibitors
