GDC signs pacts for d-cinema deployment in Latin America


GDC Technology announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, GDC Digital Cinema Network, has signed separate non-exclusive digital-cinema deployment agreements with each of the six major Hollywood studios—Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp., Paramount Pictures Global, Sony Pictures Releasing International Corp., Universal Pictures International and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.—to deploy DCI-compliant d-cinema equipment to cinemas in the Latin American region.

Collectively, the studio agreements cover several countries in Latin America, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and, in most cases, Ecuador. Subject to the terms and conditions under each agreement, each studio will separately provide certain financial contributions to promote digital cinema when supplying films, if booked, in digital form to GDC’s exhibitors.
