GDC Technology Brings the Latest Immersive Sound to Florida’s EPIC Theatres

GDC Technology Limited ("GDC Technology"), a world-leading digital cinema solutions provider, is pleased to announce plans to install DTS:X, powered by GDC’s Immersive Sound Media Server (“SX-2000X”), in four premium large format (“PLF”) screens at three new EPIC Theatres locations in the first quarter of 2016. As DTS:X worldwide certification service agent, GDC Technology will be leading the effort to provide EPIC Theatres with a complete DTS:X immersive sound solution.

Launched at CinemaCon 2015, DTS:X offers exhibitors an affordable immersive sound technology for auditoriums of any size. GDC’s SX-2000X is the only digital cinema server currently available in the market capable of rendering DTS:X in real-time. The agreement with EPIC comprises theatres located in Orlando, Jacksonville, and Titusville, and marks one of the first wide-ranging DTS:X screen rollouts in the United States.

Founded in 2003, EPIC is a privately held motion picture exhibition company based in DeLand, Florida. The four planned PLF screens to be equipped with GDC’s SX-2000X to offer DTS:X immersive sound align with the company’s mission to provide the very best cinematic experience to all of its guests. The company currently operates 81 screens at seven sites, and has plans to add more than 60 screens at five new sites as part of its future expansion.

“We have adopted GDC’s SX-2000X in our new premium auditoriums so our audiences can enjoy DTS:X, which provides the most vivid and life-like cinema sound I’ve ever heard,” said Mr. Clint DeMarsh, vice president of EPIC Theatres. “The server’s built-in ability to render DTS:X in real-time is very impressive. By eliminating the need for an external immersive sound processor, the cost of converting a theatre screen is now manageable. We have collaborated with GDC Technology for over eight years, and we’re confident that its new sound solutions will be as reliable as their other digital cinema products.”

“We are honored that EPIC Theatres has chosen our immersive sound solution. The company is one of our most forward-thinking customers, and one of the early adopters of GDC’s SX-2000X – a wise choice,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, GDC Technology’s founder, chairman, and CEO. “DTS:X, powered by GDC’s SX-2000X, offers superior sound and is very flexible and easily integrated, something that theatre owners will appreciate as they upgrade or build their theatres. But audiences win too – DTS:X’s flexible speaker layout and SX-2000X’s additional processing power now make immersive cinema sound available to a larger number of theatres than ever before, large and small alike, and make it more widely affordable. We’re confident that it will be a great success for EPIC.”
