GDC Integrated Media Block achieves DCI compliance

Oct 1, 2012

GDC Technology’s new Integrated Media Block (IMB) with digital-cinema servers including the SX-3000A, SX-2000AR and SX-2000TR models is now compliant with the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) system specifications, pursuant to compliance testing as conducted by Keio University.

GDC’s SX-3000A and SX-2000AR/TR IMBs support high-frame-rate playback in both 2D and 3D (at 48 and 60 frames per second per eye), as well as 2K and 4K resolution. They also feature Intopix decoding technology capable of playing compression bit rates of up to 500 Mb/s for all color components, and support built-in digital connectivity for alternative content. The IMBs also feature long-distance content streaming and remote access via gigabit Ethernet, which can significantly simplify cinema multiplex operations with standalone architecture.

According to Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC, the company has received orders of approximately 3,000 units of new, DCI-compliant IMBs to be delivered over the next 12 months.

Film Review: Paddington
