Barco has announced that GDC's integrated media block can be seamlessly integrated into its cinema projectors. In recent years long-standing partners GDC and Barco have worked together on some 1000 digital conversions in China. We are very happy to continue our strong partnership with Barco and to offer the digital cinema industry a total solution with an integrated media block says Dr. Man-Nang Chong founder and CEO of GDC Technology. The GDC media block has been designed to meet the DCI v1.2 specification media block in projector configuration and supports 12-bit X'Y'Z' uncompressed playback for resolutions up to 4K. It further features lesser perimeter of security for content and keys compared to an external media server solution and requires less cabling between the media block and storage server. 

 Frank Christiaens president of Barco for Greater China Region says With the IMB integrated in a Barco projector customers are sure of a compact future-proof digital projection solution based on Texas Instruments' enhanced DLP Cinema technology. We truly value our long-standing partnership with GDC and the integration of the GDC media block into our projectors confirms our joint commitment to the Chinese marketplace. Barco
