GDC Technology has introduced the GDC SX-4000 Standalone IMB and XSP-1000 Cinema Processor, what the company calls a future-proof IMB with real-time DTS:X decoding and an advanced cinema processor. According to the company, when combined the bundled system enables a high-quality audio experience at a price point that allows exhibitors worldwide to affordably install immersive sound in auditoriums of any size and delivers realistic, rich sound to a much broader audience.
The GDC SX-4000 immersive sound media server is designed to be fully DCI compliant with a built-in decoder for real-time rendering of DTS:X immersive sound in full 16-channels and two channels to support narrative audio, motion data and other special purpose signals. In addition to supporting DTS:X the GDC XSP-1000 cinema processor can support multiple object-based immersive sound formats.
"Immersive sound comes to life when all of the details in the soundtrack are heard accurately," said Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology Limited. "By giving exhibitors the first-ever affordable choice to install immersive sound, this new solution from GDC can be a game changer for the industry. Audiences around the world will certainly experience better sound regardless of the size of the auditorium."
