Cinemas Procinal partners with NEC Colombia and GDC for digital conversion

Oct 24, 2013

Cinemas Procinal, the fourth-largest exhibitor in Colombia, selected GDC Technology’s flagship product, the SX-3000 Standalone IMB® with Portable Storage, for its digital conversion. This deployment covers its entire cinema chain totaling 66 screens in 16 theatres across Bogota, Medellin, Cartagena, Villavicencio, and Apartado.
 
NEC Colombia, a wholly owned NEC subsidiary, is the system integrator for the deployment and will supply NEC DLP Cinema® projectors with the SX-3000 Standalone IMB and Portable Storage to Cinemas Procinal. CE+S, a professional digital-cinema service provider in America, will supply the TMS rack system for the deployment. The deployment will start in November 2013.
 
“Digital conversion will be an exciting adventure for us as well as marking a pivotal point in our company’s history. Working with NEC Colombia, CE+S and GDC Technology has been a seamless fit for this project from the conception,” said Jorge Enrique Gutierrez, general manager of Cinemas Procinal. “We chose GDC Technology’s SX-3000 Standalone IMB because of its cutting edge technology which allows us to eliminate the maintenance work that is involved with an external digital-cinema server and because it offers the benefit of a scalable storage solution.”
