China Film Group selects GDC's standalone IMB
GDC Technology announced that a total of 700 units of its SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Blocks™ have been selected by China Film Group Corp. for its 2014–2015 digital-cinema deployment. The deployment, in which Barco DLP Cinema® projectors are integrated with GDC’s SX-3000 IMB, began in Q3 2014.
GDC Technology and CFGC have worked in close collaboration in the digital-cinema sector since the two signed their first deployment agreement in 2007. GDC’s success in securing more than 70% market share in China is attributed to GDC’s early involvement with China Film Group and its round-the-clock cinema service in China nationwide. To date, GDC has more than 100 employees in China and shipped more than 16,000 digital-cinema servers there.
