GDC Technology will introduce its award-winning integrated media block and new 16-channel cinema sound processor to cinema owners at India’s Big Cine Expo 2016.

The next-generation GDC SX-4000 Standalone IMB and XSP-1000 Cinema Processor comprises a future-proof IMB with real-time DTS:X decoding and an advanced cinema processor.  When combined, this latest GDC Technology immersive sound solution enables a high-quality audio experience at a price point that allows exhibitors worldwide to affordably install immersive sound in auditoriums of any size and delivers realistic, rich sound to a much broader audience.

The GDC SX-4000 immersive sound media server is designed to be fully DCI compliant with a built-in decoder for real-time rendering of DTS:X immersive sound in full 16-channels and two additional channels to support narrative audio, motion data and other special purpose signals.  In addition to supporting DTS:X, the GDC XSP-1000 cinema processor can support multiple object-based immersive sound formats.

"Immersive Sound comes to life when all of the details in the soundtrack are heard accurately," said Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology Limited.  "This new solution is a game changer for the industry, providing audiences with a truly unique immersive sound experience while offering cinema owners a future-proof affordable solution. Audiences will certainly experience better sound regardless of the size of the auditorium."

GDC SX-4000 IMB received the 2016 Digital Cinema Report Catalyst Award.
