GDC Technology confirms server deal with Sichuan Pacific


GDC Technology confirmed an agreement to sell 100 digital-cinema servers, along with the company’s new Enterprise Storage solution, to Sichuan Pacific Cinema Circuit. The agreement is a repeat order from Sichuan Pacific and involves the rollout of GDC’s SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block™ in the circuit’s newly built cinema multiplexes.

Sichuan Pacific was established in 2002 by China Film Group Corp. and Sichuan Film Corp. Sichuan Pacific operates 91 multiplexes with over 530 screens, and has become the largest film-screening company in Southwest China. In 2013, it achieved box-office takings of RMB700 million, with an estimated market share of four percent.

“We’ve proudly been installing GDC media servers since 2011,” said Dai Hong, technical director of Sichuan Pacific. “Throughout three years of cooperation, our cinema network has been further expanded. GDC’s feature-rich media servers and quality services have reassured us that we will be able to deliver a great moviegoing experience to our customers. We have been very pleased with the overall process of working with GDC and the reliability of GDC servers with Enterprise Storage solution is truly exceptional.”
