Sony Professional Solutions China and GDC Technology Limited today announced that Sony’s SRX-R608-DS dual 4K laser projection system integrated with GDC’s SR-1100 integrated media block has completed the full range of tests necessary to receive compliance from Digital Cinema Initiative. As a result of receiving DCI compliance for this latest projection system, exhibitors are positioned to capitalize on the continuing advancement in laser and high dynamic range technologies with a high-end, reliable product designed for small theatres.
The test was completed by the Research Institute for Digital Media and Content at Keio University in Japan, one of three entities licensed by Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC to perform the Compliance Test Plan tests. The SRX-R608-DS with SR-1100 IMB was approved by DCI after successfully passing the DCI Compliance Test Plan Version 1.2.
“The SRX-R608 digital cinema projector is the ideal choice for booth-less application in small format and VIP rooms,” said Shuji Okada, general manager of value added group, Sony Professional Solutions China. “The adoption of SXRD 4K chips and technology brings the complete immersive experience to moviegoers even when they are watching the movie from a short distance.”
GDC’s SR-1000 Standalone IMB was introduced in April at CinemaCon 2018 and received immediate positive response from global exhibitors.
"We are committed to investing in R&D and staying at the forefront of technology. Our product development evolves to meet the needs of exhibitors worldwide, even before they become a trend,” said Pranay Kumar, CTO of GDC Technology Limited. “GDC is proud to work with Sony’s technically competent team to bring a product to market that answers the projected demand for small screens. Sony receiving DCI compliance for SRX-R608-DS with SR-1100 IMB is another step forward toward achieving our goal of ensuring all cinemas, regardless of the projection technology they choose, are equipped with future proof products.”
