GDC Technology Launches Record Number of Industry First Products at CinemaCon 2019

Game-changing technology to automate workflow along with innovative FAST media servers and cost-effective audio solution paves the way for the cinema industry to enter the future
GDC Technology Limited (‘GDC’), a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today that it will launch a record number of new products at this year’s CinemaCon, held April 1 to 4, 2019. 

The new products include an expanded capability to manage up to 30 screens with its centralized cinema automation system, two 4K high frame rate (HFR) and 4K 3D next-generation FAST (Flexible Architecture Stable Technology) media server series and a bespoke all-in-one media server designed for cinema display technologies. 

“GDC’s passion for innovation is driven by listening to our customers and understanding their evolving needs as the industry develops new filmmaking techniques to attract and engross audiences”, said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology. “Our goal is to satisfy their needs by continually improving and automating cinema operations through our reliable first-to-market solutions, helping exhibitors to cut operating costs, increase revenues and improve screening quality. For years we have been tight-lipped about the development of our latest technologies. CinemaCon is the perfect venue to launch the most products in one year in our history.” 

Expanded Cinema Automation 2.0 (CA2.0) capability 
The revolutionary GDC CA2.0 incorporates the SCL Centralized Playback Server Series, an integrated centralized storage and playback system designed to streamline content management, and leverages machine intelligence to increase efficiency by several orders of magnitude while dramatically reducing the need for human intervention. 

The SCL Server Series is the world’s first scalable centralized playback solution: 
  • SCL-1000 – up to 8 screens, 
  • SCL-2000 – 9 to 14 screens, 
  • SCL-3000 – 15 to 21 screens and 
  • SCL-4000 – 22 to 30 screens 

Key benefits of SCL Server Series 
SCL Series Servers offer each auditorium access to a wide assortment of movies from a centralized server without the need of local storage attached to every media server. They are designed with scalability and reliability in mind. Their storage capacity can be customized based on the number of screens (from 4 to 30) and the number of movie titles (up to a few thousands DCPs) to be stored and streamed to all the auditoriums. With the storage capacity increased by up to 51 times when compared to the traditional method, SCL series servers are the answer to exhibitors' demand for an “online” content solution that enables them to maintain competitiveness in today’s market. 

In addition to automating the complex procedure of manually preparing or editing show playlists, CA2.0 incorporates other impressive advances, such as: 

  • The system intelligently manages equipment power supply and assures industry standard screening quality automatically by smart testing and analysis and; 
  • Its sophisticated fail-safe design helps eliminate interruptions by ensuring that every screening continues undisturbed in the highly unlikely event of a central server failure.
SR Series Standalone Integrated Media Block™ with FAST (Flexible Architecture Stable Technology) for advanced cinematic imagery 
Based on proven technology from GDC, a cinema owner’s reliable choice since 2000, GDC’s SR Family was introduced in March at CinemaCon 2017 to rave reviews by exhibitors. This year, the product line expands to include two new media server series designed with advanced features to enhance the imagery. 

Key features and benefits of the new SR Series IMBs 

  • Compatibility with new DLP Cinema® projectors SR-5400 Series is capable of playing DCP content in 4K 3D and 4K@60fps and seamlessly integrates with the new DLP Cinema® projectors from Barco, Christie and NEC. The SR-6400 is capable of 4K 3D and 4K@120fps, and compatible with the new Christie® projector featuring ReaLaser™ illumination and CineLife+™. 
  • Features CineCache™ The SR Series is designed with diskless CineCache™ (built-in cache memory). Content playback can be performed without the need of local HDD storage. 
  • Supports the playback of thousands of movies Take full advantage of show scheduling with Ultra Storage technology that enables the playback of over 2,000 movies with Cinema Automation CA2.0. 
  • High reliability Ultra-reliable SR-Series media servers with built-in embedded power electronics used in medical and military products ensuring the overall system stability. 
  • User-friendly and intuitive web-based user interface The newly designed web-based UI is user-friendly and intuitive.
