GDC Technology announced it has shipped over 14,000 units of its SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block® (SX-3000 IMB) globally, making it the most widely installed IMB on the market.

In addition, the unit allows long-distance 2K and 4K content streaming and remote access via gigabit Ethernet to simplify multiplex cinema operations.

“Global response towards the SX-3000 IMB has been overwhelming, as exhibitors are actively selecting next-generation integrated media blocks to upgrade their performance for the digital age,” stated Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Technology.

SX-3000 IMB sales have grown 2% year-on-year since its introduction in H1 2013. As of July 2014, GDC Technology holds the largest share of Asia’s digital-cinema server and theatre management system market, and is the number-one digital-cinema server provider in China, South Korea and Taiwan.
