GDC Technology (“GDC Tech”), a world leading digital cinema solution provider, is pleased to announce today that it won a server supply agreement with Wehrenberg Theatres, the oldest and largest family-owned theatre chain in the US. The deployment which commenced in October 2011 will see a total of 144 GDC digital cinema servers installed.

Under this contract NEC Financial Services provides financing while Ballantyne Strong, Inc. (NYSE Amex: BTN) provides the installation and maintenance services, as well as providing NEC digital cinema projections systems and GDC digital cinema servers.
 
“We required a team that could provide us with both guidance through each stage of the conversion process; and access to superior products.” said Ronald P. Krueger, chairman and CEO of Wehrenberg Theatres. “This is one of the key reasons why we chose GDC, in that the company is renowned for its quality products and reliable services. Needless to say, we’re very excited about this partnership, and look forward to becoming fully digitalized in order to provide our moviegoers with the best cinematic experience possible.” Ray Boegner, senior vice president of Ballantyne Strong added “This is yet another successful collaboration with GDC to provide customers with the most cutting edge digital cinema technology.”
 
“GDC is delighted to have been selected for the digital conversion of Wehrenberg Theatres,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology. “To serve such a prestigious theatre chain with a century old history is immensely rewarding for us. We’re confident that our innovative products will swiftly and smoothly modernize Wehrenberg Theatres bringing the magic of digital cinema to all its movie lovers. Once again we’re pleased to collaborate with our valued partners Ballantyne Strong and NEC. We welcome Wehrenberg into a venture which has proved successful time and time again.”
