GDC Technology showcases new innovations at CineAsia 2012
CINEASIA, Hong Kong(December 10, 2012) –GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world-leading digital cinema solution provider, will showcase a wide range of innovative digital cinema solutions, backed by its technical support team, in booth #311 at CineAsia 2012 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre in Wanchai, from December 11th to 13th.
SX–3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block™(“IMB”)
Since its debut at CineAsia 2011, the SX–3000 Standalone IMB™has revolutionized the architecture of digital cinema and has received strong support from the cinema industry. The groundbreaking SX–3000 Standalone IMB™eliminates the need for a file server, which allows for incredible flexibility of boothless cinema design and reduces the cost of operating and maintaining the digital cinema theaters.SX–3000 Standalone IMB™can seamlessly integrate with all types of DLP Cinema® projectors, including the latestS2K DLP Cinema®family of projectors. Moreover, the SX–3000 Standalone IMB™features a gigabit Ethernet connection for long-distance content streaming and remote access. It also supports high frame rate (“HFR”) playback in both 2D and 3D (at 48 and 60 frames per second per eye), as well as 4K resolution. SX–3000is capable of playing compression bit rates of up to 500Mbpswhich satisfies the “High Frame Rates Digital Cinema Recommended Practice” issued by DCI on September 28 of this year.
PSD–3000 Portable Storage Device
The PSD–3000 Portable StorageDevice is a highly reliable content storage solution that works seamlessly with the SX–3000 Standalone IMB™. The PSD–3000 features 3 hot-swappable data drives based on RAID 5 technology allowing it to remain operational in the event of a single drive failure. Moreover, it can be mounted on the DLP Cinema® projectors in accordance with specific mount configurations. A variation of this model that can be directly inserted into projector pedestals is also available. All PSD–3000 storage devices do not require a PC onboard to manage the HDDs hence reducing the cost of maintaining and operating the Standalone IMB™with PSD–3000. Standalone IMB without the need for an external server to manage the data drives is indisputable the most cost-effective solution for today’s digital cinema. Standalone IMB is a new architecture widely adopted by leading projection companies. More importantly, the PSD–3000 external storage device is an optimal storage solution without the need for a server and without stressing the HDDs on the heat radiating IMB that concealed inside the projector chassis. GDCTechshares the same belief with the projector manufacturer that concealing all the hard disk drives within the projector chassis is an undesirable design that is highly unreliable. Furthermore, the PSD–3000 is easily accessible if replacement of just one or all HDDs is required.
TMS–1000 Theatre Management System and Network Operations Centre(NOC)
With almost 8,000 screens installed worldwide, the TMS–1000 Theatre Management System significantly streamlines the management of a multiplex from a centralized point of control.
