Ballantyne has been granted rights to distribute GDC’s digital cinema server line in North and South America.  The initial term of the agreement is three years and is automatically renewable for subsequent three-year periods based on the satisfaction of various conditions by both parties. In addition to serving as a reseller Ballantyne will also provide integration services for GDC server products in the same territories.   The agreement builds upon a partnership between GDC and Ballantyne’s Strong Technical Services subsidiary initiated last October.  Pursuant to the STS-GDC agreement GDC expanded its service network in the U.S. by utilizing STS to provide installation maintenance and service support for GDC digital cinema servers and related products.  The STS technical staff has undergone extensive training by GDC on the GDC digital cinema server product line.
