GDC Technology has introduced several new products including an expanded capability to manage up to 30 screens with a centralized cinema automation system, two 4K high frame rate and 4K 3D media server series and a bespoke all-in-in media server designed for cinema display technologies. 

“GDC’s passion for innovation is driven by listening to our customers and understanding their evolving needs as the industry develops new filmmaking techniques to attract and engross audiences, 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 operations through our reliable first-to-market solutions, helping exhibitors to cut operating costs, increase revenues and improve screening quality. For years we have been tight-lipped about the development of our latest technologies. CinemaCon is the perfect venue to launch the most products in one year in our history.” 

The GDC CA2.0 incorporates the SCL Centralized Playback Server Series, an integrated centralized storage and playback system designed to streamline content management, and leverages machine intelligence to increase efficiency by several orders of magnitude while dramatically reducing the need for human intervention. 

GDC says the SCL Server Series is the world’s first scalable centralized playback system.

SCL Series Servers offer each auditorium access to a wide assortment of movies from a centralized server without the need of local storage attached to every media server. They are designed with scalability and reliability in mind. Their storage capacity can be customized based on the number of screens (from 4 to 30) and the number of movie titles to be stored and streamed to all the auditoriums.

The SR Series has been expanded to include two new media server series designed with advanced features to enhance the imagery. 

The SR-5400 Series is capable of playing DCP content in 4K 3D and 4K@60fps and seamlessly integrates with the new DLP Cinema projectors from Barco, Christie and NEC. The SR-6400 is capable of 4K 3D and 4K@120fps, and compatible with the new Christie® projector featuring ReaLaser illumination and CineLife+.

GDC is at Booth #2103A at Caesars Palace through April 4.
