GDC Technology Limited (“GDC Technology”), a world leading digital cinema solutions provider, is proud to announce that it has sealed a new server deployment deal with Jinyi Zhujiang Movie Circuit Co. (“Jinyi”), one of China’s top 5 cinema circuits. Under the agreement, 200 units of GDC’s flagship SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block™ (“SX-3000 IMBTM”), along with its Enterprise Storage solution, will be deployed across Jinyi’s new multiplexes in 2015.
Established in 2004, Jinyi soon expanded to become one of the leading cinema chains in China, and now manages and operates close to 1,000 screens at over 200 locations across the country. Specializing in five-star luxury multiplex theatres, the company has an aggressive expansion plan that involves opening more than 200 new screens annually in the next 5 years. Jinyi has now enjoyed a 10-year partnership with GDC, having installed its first GDC server in 2005.
In 2011, more than 200 units of GDC’s SX-2000A Digital Cinema Server with Integrated Media Block (IMB) were deployed by Jinyi, making GDC the chain’s number one digital cinema server provider. In addition to digital cinema equipment, GDC’s TMS has also been deployed on a large scale for Jinyi since 2011, with this solution helping it to manage screens at multiple locations, including in remote areas such as Inner Mongolia.
“We are very impressed by the quality of GDC’s products and services, and the success of GDC server deployments throughout the circuit in the past has certainly cemented the company’s position as a partner in our expansion now and in the future,” said Shou-wei Xu, General Manager, Project Command Center of Jinyi.
Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology, said: “We are grateful to have gained the trust of Jinyi again. We treat Jinyi like partner and we continuously strive to provide quality services and most cost-effective and innovative products to our customers.”
