Broadway Circuit reports 99.99% reliability with GDC servers

Feb 27, 2014

Broadway Circuit, one of the largest cinema circuits in Hong Kong with 62 screens in 12 theatres, issued a report on the reliability of its GDC Technology digital-cinema servers and services. In over 150,000 performances last year, GDC Technology successfully delivered 99.99% uptime for Broadway Circuit.
 
Broadway Circuit manages three brands, including the stylish cinema brand “Broadway” and the premium cinema brands “Palace” and “AMC,” covering all the major locations in Hong Kong.
 
“As one of Hong Kong’s premier theatre chains, we selected GDC Technology to provide the best solution for our digitization,” says Tessa Lau, CEO of Broadway Circuit. “We achieved the highest record of Chinese New Year box-office this year. We believe without the digital deployment we could hardly do nine shows per screen per day to capture the hype of the audiences’ needs.”

Hunger Games - Mockingjay Pt 1
Film Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Darker, less action-packed first half of the final installment of the popular franchise moves from arenas to rubble aplenty as Jennifer Lawrence’s super-heroine is called upon to serve her beleaguered and much-destroyed nation as propaganda instrument and leader. Fans of the books and previous two films get a less flashy palette here, but the engaging characters and strong story return to stir interest for the scheduled November 2015 finale. More »
