GDC Technology announced today the option to upgrade the award-winning GDC SX-4000 Standalone Integrated Media Block to DTS:X supporting the immersive audio bitstream. This upgrade is designed to support SMPTE’s immersive audio bitstream standard ST 2098-2, which represents a major milestone towards the goal of delivering a single interoperable immersive audio format for theatrical distribution.
Supporting SMPTE’s IAB will bring even more immersive content to the DTS:X screens worldwide, exactly as the ﬁlmmakers intended.
“SX-4000 is a widely used IMB globally and it enables cinematic presentations with immersive audio, thanks to its GDC featuring DTS:X technology,” said Pranay Kumar, CTO of GDC Technology Limited. “The addition of DTS:X supporting IAB benefits thousands of exhibitors to ease their operations by supporting playback of an interoperable immersive audio digital cinema package and brings even more content to their screens. We are committed to continuously add new features not only to our latest products but also the existing models in use by our exhibition partners.”
