Starplex went through an extensive testing period with GDC Technology and feels confident it will support the current and future demands of digital projection. We will introduce GDC Technology in 9 of our current locations, and we look forward to our future success with the implementation of GDC.”
 
Bill Knight, Director of Construction and Technical Services for Starplex Cinemas, said: “It is a great pleasure to announce GDC as our digital server provider. GDC is a leader in the digital server field and are consistently making cutting edge technological advances. We have been through a thorough trial period and GDC has been proactive in resolving any issues.  I feel confident it will be a seamless digital deployment now and in the future. Thanks to Annie Wang and Paul Marcot, we have gained the upmost confidence in not only the GDC product, but also the GDC team.”
 
“This partnership with Starplex Cinemas represents a major step forward in growing GDC’s presence in the US market,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “We are delighted that after an extensive test trial, Starplex Cinemas gave us the thumbs up and chose GDC for their digital cinema deployment. GDC is fast gaining traction in North America and we are confident we will maintain this momentum as more exhibitors here begin to realize GDC’s many advantages over others.”
