GDC bags order to deploy 200 D-Cinema servers for Chinese theaters

MUMBAI: GDC Technology has won a repeat order for digital servers from Guangzhou-based Jinyi Zhujiang Movie Circuit Co., the sixth largest exhibitor in China. Under this contract, 200 units of GDC SA-2100A server will be deployed and work has been scheduled to start in 2010. This project is a sequel to an earlier one in February 2009 where 100 units of GDC digital cinema system were deployed.


Jinyi was founded as a joint venture between Jiayu Group and Guangzhou Cinema Chain, specializing in the business of premier cinemas in China. It has close to 200 screens throughout China and is one of the leading cinema exhibitors in the country.


"We began working with GDC in 2005 when we first embarked on our digital conversion. GDC’s feature-rich products, user-friendly design and 365x24x7 hotline support have been among the major factors contributing to the success of our initial rollout program, and its caring and immediate response to customer problems have also been very reassuring to us throughout the project. Given GDC’s impeccable track record of reliability, excellent services and cost competitiveness, we are convinced to stay on with GDC in our new phase of deployment," said Jinyi GM Xu Binbiao.


"As a pioneer in the digital cinema industry in China, GDC has over the years established itself as the undisputed market leader with close to two-thirds of the market share in the country. We owe our success to the trust and support of many of our satisfied customers with whom we have built a long and lasting relationship. Jinyi’s repeat order is a testament to this kind of special relationship that we have with our customers and we are both proud and honored about it," said GDC Technology founder and CEO Dr Man-Nang Chong.
