GDC Technology showcasestheindustry’s first Standalone Integrated Media Block (IMB) –the SX-3000 at CinemaCon 2012
Hong Kong (April 20, 2012) –GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world-leading digital cinema solution provider, is scheduled to showcase the industry’s first Standalone Integrated Media Block (IMB)–the SX–3000, at CinemaCon(Booth #2219) from 24ththrough 26thof April 2012 in Las Vegas. The second-generation IMB –SX–3000 Standalone IMB significantly lowers the operation, maintenance, and installation costs as it does not require a costly server attached to each IMB.
GDC Tech’sfeature–rich Standalone IMB, the SX–3000, made its debut at CineAsia, Hong Kong, in December 2011. In addition to its high frame rate (“HFR”)capability in both 2D and 3D, the SX–3000 has the added benefit of supporting digital connectivity for alternative content such as 3G HD–SDI and HDMI input with image–scaling from HD to 4K. The SX–3000 permits long-distance 2Kand 4Kcontent streaming and remote access via gigabit Ethernet, thereby greatly simplifies cinema multiplex operation.
GDC Tech is fully committed to safeguarding its customers’ investment in digital cinema. A simple yet feature-rich upgrade package will be available on the GDC SX series servers currently installed in the field, which will provide our customers with not only HFR capability but many additional features and functions that will ease a theatre’s daily operations. This upgrade will be available in the third quarter (Q3) of 2012.
“The demonstration of our SX–3000 IMB is a testament to our relentless pursuit to excel as a leader in cutting–edge digital cinema technology. GDCTechalways aims to provide customers with future–proof solutions that give them peace of mind and a product that requires little maintenance,” said Dr. Man–Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Tech.“We invite you to join us at CinemaConfor a live demonstration of our brand new generation of IMB, the SX–3000 Standalone IMB which significantly simplifies the cinema operation of a multiplex for almost all known picture formats including SD, HD, 2K, 4K, and HFR 3D.“
