GDC Technology announced today that a total of 700 units of GDC’s SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Blocks and Barco DLP Cinema projectors have been selected by China Film Group Corporation for its 2014-2015 digital cinema deployment. The deployment began in Q3 2014.
GDC Technology and CFGC have worked in close collaboration in the digital cinema sector since the two signed their first deployment agreement in 2007. GDC’s claim of more than 70 percent market share in China for the last few years can be attributed to its early involvement with CFGC.
In September 2001, GDC successfully transmitted Columbia Pictures Final Fantasy in digital cinema format to cinemas in Beijing and Shanghai. GDC has developed a comprehensive service footprint that completely covers the whole nation. To date, GDC has more than one hundred employees in China and has shipped more than 16,000 digital cinema servers in China.
CFGC is the largest and most influential state-run film enterprise in China and it is involved in a variety of operations, including film and television production; film distribution and exhibition; film importation and exportation; cinema circuit management; digital cinema construction; digital print development and processing; film equipment management; ancillary products; advertising; property management; and real estate. CFGC currently runs the largest network of DCI compliant digital cinemas in China nationwide.
