GDC confirms second digital server deal with Evergrande circuit


GDC Technology secured a fresh agreement for the sale of its digital-cinema servers and Theatre Management System (TMS) from China’s Evergrande Cinema Circuit Management Co. Under the agreement, GDC’s SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block™ and TMS will be installed in the circuit’s 30 new cineplexes in 2015.

This is the company’s second order from Evergrande within the short timespan of one year. Evergrande, one of the largest cinema circuits in China, deployed roughly 300 SX-3000 IMBs and 30 TMS units in 2014.

“After the installation of the first order this year, we are very impressed by the exceptional reliability of SX-3000 IMB,” said Guangwei Li, general manager of Evergrande Cinema Circuit.  “Further contributing to the repeat order is the professional service provided by GDC and the fact that we have an excellent collaboration with the GDC team.”

Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology, added: “A second order, within a year of the first, is a significant vote of confidence in the operational advantages delivered by GDC’s products and services and it proves that the SX-3000 IMB is a reliable choice for exhibitors. As with the first order, we take great pride in being part of the expansion of Evergrande Cinema Circuit.”
