Technicolor and GDC Technology enter digital-cinema strategic alliance

April 17, 2013

Las Vegas—Technicolor has announced a new strategic alliance with leading Asian digital-cinema solution provider GDC Technology. The alliance will streamline the distribution process for Asia, allowing customers to benefit from high-quality drive replication without the expense of transporting drives across distant international borders or the complexity of managing multiple vendors.

“This strategic alliance means Technicolor and GDC Tech can offer studio clients a single point of contact for in-country drive replication, distribution and KDM support, initially focusing on Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore with plans to expand across the region," said Claude Gagnon, president of Technicolor Creative Services Worldwide. "As the largest supplier of digital cinema servers throughout Asia, GDC Tech is the ideal partner to enable us to offer content owners and distributors the most comprehensive set of digital-cinema services in the region. The agreement will provide our clients with the same exacting standards they have come to expect from Technicolor's owned and operated facilities across the globe.”

“We are delighted to be entering this venture with Technicolor,” added Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder and CEO of GDC Tech, “which, like GDC Tech, has a long-standing reputation for outstanding delivery of services and solutions for the cinema industry. By working side by side, we can combine our knowledge of digital-cinema technology and avant-garde facilities with Technicolor’s renowned technology and worldwide distribution services to offer studio clients an integrated, high-quality, value-driven replication and distribution fulfilment service.”

Technicolor offers a suite of services including localization, digital-cinema content mastering, and distribution. The company delivers its customers’ content to digital-cinema screens worldwide by leveraging a hybrid distribution platform comprised of physical and electronic distribution mediums, including key management to ensure the security and reliable delivery of content to movie theatres.
