GDC Showcases GDC Technology is showcasing its CA2.0 cinema automation system to motion pictures exhibitors during CinemaCon 2018.
The company says the CA2.0 is the first-ever centralized solution to provide comprehensive automated management of content storage and playback, show scheduling, power supply and screening quality – providing exhibitors the best solution to save time, effort and cost. GDC CA2.0 incorporates the SCL-2000 Centralized Storage Playback Solution, an integrated centralized storage and playback system designed to streamline content management, and leverages machine intelligence to increase efficiency while dramatically reducing the need for human intervention.
First deployed last June in Asia, CA2.0 can increase efficiency and quality while significantly reduces operating cost. The automated solution supports the ubiquitous SX-3000 and SX-4000 IMB and the new 6th generation SR-1000 IMB. In addition, CA2.0 has the capability of storing up to 1,000 movies, offering nearly unlimited show schedule programming options.
In addition to automating the complex procedure of manually preparing or editing show playlists, CA2.0 incorporates other impressive advances, such as:
The system intelligently manages equipment power supply and assures screening quality automatically
Its sophisticated fail-safe design helps eliminating interruptions by ensuring that every screening continues undisturbed in the highly unlikely event of a central server failure
“GDC’s passion for innovation is driven by listening to our customers and understanding their evolving needs as the industry develops,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology. “Our goal is to satisfy their needs by continually improving and automating cinema operation through our reliable first-to-market solutions, helping exhibitors to cut operating costs, increase revenues and improve screening quality.”
