CINEMACON, Las Vegas (April 26, 2012) – GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world-leading digital cinema solution provider, and NEC, a leading provider of commercial LCD and projector solutions, have teamed up and presented the first-ever demonstration of High Frame Rate (“HFR”) in 3D utilizing a GDCSX-3000 Standalone IMB and NEC’s next-generation 4K-resolution laser projector at NEC’s Milano Meeting Suite during CinemaCon 2012.
The demonstration showcased how the combined capabilities of NEC’s and GDC Tech’s digital cinema solutions are capable of achieving HFR laser projection in 3D using the Standalone IMB, which continues to drive cutting-edge digital cinema technology.
