Ballantyne Expands Digital Cinema Product Line to Include GDC Technology Servers for North and South America

Ballantyne of Omaha, Inc. (NYSE Amex: BTN), a provider of cinema equipment and services, and GDC Technology (USA) LLC today announced that Ballantyne has been granted rights to distribute GDC’s digital cinema server line in North and South America. The initial term of the agreement is three years and is automatically renewable for subsequent three-year periods based on the satisfaction of various conditions by both parties. In addition to serving as a reseller, Ballantyne will also provide integration services for GDC server products in the same territories. GDC Technology is a leading digital cinema server provider with the world’s second largest installed base of servers.

The agreement builds upon a partnership between GDC and Ballantyne’s Strong Technical Services (STS) subsidiary initiated in October 2008. Pursuant to the STS-GDC agreement, GDC expanded its service network in the U.S. by utilizing STS to provide installation, maintenance and service support for GDC digital cinema servers and related products. The STS technical staff has undergone extensive training by GDC on the GDC digital cinema server product line.

“Ballantyne is a valuable GDC partner, allowing us to support the American market with SA-2100 digital cinema server offerings that deliver advanced functionality,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “We are confident that the winning combination of the superior customer service provided by Ballantyne-Strong and the top-quality servers produced in our ISO9001:2000 certified manufacturing facility should win many new fans in the Americas.”

John Wilmers, Ballantyne’s President & CEO, commented, “By adding GDC Technology servers to our digital cinema product line, Ballantyne-Strong is now able to provide our customers a comprehensive solution that spans digital projectors, servers, screens, accessories and related service. GDC is recognized on a global basis for the high quality and excellent value it delivers in its digital cinema server line. We are excited at the prospect of helping GDC expand their market share in the Americas, and look forward to building upon this partnership in other ways.”
