GDC Technology Limited, a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today China Film Cinema Da Guang Road in Nanjing, has become the first cinema in China to operate the projection booth with no human intervention by using its Cinema Automation 2.0 (CA2.0), which is designed to fully automate workflow. The multiplex has been running for three months with zero incident reported, providing a significant increase in operation efficiency. The daily operation of the 7-plex is taking full advantage of the key features of CA2.0, including a centralized server to live-stream selected DCP (from a library of hundreds of titles) to each and every auditorium, automatic-rendering of show playlists (that include pre-show screen advertisements and movie trailers), intelligent management of power supplies and screening quality.
GDC and the cinema operator are proud to witness an era of fully automated cinema operation unveiling in one of China Film Cinema’s key properties. The China Film Cinema Da Guang Road in Nanjing is also connected to China’s largest network operations centre – CFGDC Digital Cinema Co. Ltd. (CFGDC). Headquartered in Beijing, CFGDC is a joint venture set up by China Film Group and GDC Technology.
