MUMBAI: GDC Technology has closed a new deal with Cinemas Guzzo. A total of 42 GDC digital cinema servers (27 new deployments and 4 replacements of existing servers) for 3D releases will be deployed in this project and rollout will commence in March 2010.
Before the end of 2010 Cinemas Guzzo expects to replace its remaining 11 non-GDC servers. The project is of special significance to Cinemas Guzzo in that all its servers for 3D movies and digital presentations in the next few months will be screened entirely on the GDC servers deployed in this project.
“We take pride in providing moviegoers the best possible cinema experience. We were the first to bring Digital 3D to Montreal (Quebec) and we expect to be the first to be 100% digital very shortly with GDC!” said Cinemas Guzzo executive vice-president and chief operating officer Vincenzo Guzzo. ”After having tested three different type of servers, we have determined GDC is our choice for our digital cinema servers, because it offers possibly the best performance in the market, the most expandability and versatility. And given GDC’s vast experience in digital rollout, we know we can and will always get the support we need in making a successful transition to 3D and digital cinema.”
“We are delighted to get our first and the most meaningful partnership with exhibitor in Canada after closing this deal,” said GDC Technology founder and CEO Man-Nang CHONG. “Cinemas Guzzo’s decision to switch 100% to GDC servers is a real flattering compliment to us and we are honored to have obtained such recognition from a leading Canadian exhibitor. GDC’s quality products and in-depth industry know-how have been instrumental in the successful digital conversions of many of its customers worldwide; we believe there is much that GDC can offer to exhibitors in this country and we welcome any opportunity to explore further on this.”
