GDC showcases digital-cinema technology at CineEurope


GDC Technology will showcase a comprehensive set of digital-cinema solutions at booth 238 at CineEurope 2014 at Centre Convencions Internacional Barcelona (CCIB) in Barcelona, June 16-19.

GDC will highlight its SX-3000 Standalone IMB®, the industry’s first standalone IMB which eliminates the need for an external file server, reducing maintenance and operation costs. It fulfills all Hollywood specifications including multiple image resolutions and high frame rate playback in both 2D and 3D. It also supports the needs of alternative content screenings such as automated DVD/Blu-ray playback and 3D live screening without additional hardware being required.

The SX-3000 Standalone IMB works seamlessly with GDC storage solutions, including Portable Storage, Enterprise Storage and Enterprise Storage Plus, which provide scalable storage to manage movie content. Portable Storage can support up to 3TB of redundant hot swappable storage, while Enterprise Storage provides larger storage options ranging from 4TB, 6TB to 8TB of redundant hot swappable storage. The new Enterprise Storage Plus retains all the features of Enterprise Storage with tow additional benefits: a redundant power supply for increased reliability and space for an optional CRU bay for content and key delivery.

GDC Technology will also showcase the Content Library Adapter (CLA-1000), which lets exhibitors transfer and safeguard content without a TMS, via a standard OS computer control interface.

Also on display will be GDC Technology’s Quality Management System (QMS-1000), which can be integrated with the Theatre Management System (TMS-1000), performs automatic monitor and data analysis of luminance, chromaticity and sound-pressure levels.
