Award-winning SX-4000 standalone integrated media block combined with the XSP-1000 cinema processor offers future proof solution, enabling more affordable immersive sound for auditoriums of any size

GDC Technology Limited, a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, today announced its next-generation, award-winning SX-4000 standalone integrated media block (IMB) completed the full range of tests necessary to receive compliance from the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI).  As a result of receiving DCI compliance for its latest IMB, exhibitors are positioned to capitalize on the continuing advancement in technology with a reliable product designed for current and future growth opportunities.

The GDC SX-4000 standalone IMB® is designed with a built-in decoder for real-time rendering of DTS:X™ immersive sound in full 16-channels and two additional channels to support narrative audio, motion data and other special purpose signals.
