GDC Technology has developed a new media server designed specifically for Sony’s SRX-R320 4K digital cinema projector introduced in 2009. The SR-1130 Integrated Media Block is a Digital Cinema Initiative compliant media server produced for the aforesaid Sony’s 4K projector. It is flexible in that it not only replaces Sony’s LMT-300 digital cinema server to extend the life of SRX-R320 projector while maintaining its projection quality and standard, but also integrates seamlessly in the future with all series of DLP Cinema projectors.

"We are committed to investing in R&D and staying at the forefront of cinema technology.  Our product development evolves to meet different needs of exhibitors worldwide, even before they become a trend,” said Pranay Kumar, chief technology officer of GDC Technology Limited. “GDC is proud to work with Sony’s technically competent team to bring a product to market that extends the life of Sony’s SRX-R320 projectors with the SR-1130 IMB. It 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.”

With the built-in cinema audio processor option, the SR-1130 offers the capability to provide superior sound designed for 5.1 and 7.1 uncompressed surround sound functionality. The cinema processor license can be procured remotely from GDC and unlocks the optional processor’s features.

The SR-1130 IMB is designed with a diskless CineCache option.  Content ingest and playback can be performed concurrently without local HDD storage. Incredibly fast ingest during playback. The SR-1130 IMB can be upgraded to seamlessly integrate with Series 1, 2, 3 and 4 DLP Cinema projectors including Barco, Christie, and NEC to ensure highly reliable and secure content delivery.
