GDC Technology Limited, a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, today announced its next-generation, award-winning SX-4000 standalone integrated media block (IMB) completed the full range of tests necessary to receive compliance from the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI).  As a result of receiving DCI compliance for its latest IMB, exhibitors are positioned to capitalize on the continuing advancement in technology with a reliable product designed for current and future growth opportunities.
