Espedeo Supra-5000 Laser Cinema Projector Sales Surge Worldwide

GDC to Demonstrate its Award-winning RGB+ Laser Phosphor Cinema Projector to Delegates at the World’s Largest Cinema Industry Convention
GDC Technology Limited (‘GDC’), a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today the worldwide sales and commitments of its multi-award-winning Espedeo Supra-5000 RGB+ Laser Phosphor Cinema Projector from Espedeo Holdings Limited, a GDC company has exceeded 400 units since its introduction in August 2021.  

The rapid sales growth of GDC’s first RGB+ laser phosphor projector in such countries as Australia, China, England, Germany, Hong Kong, India, the Middle East, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States substantiates the global adoption by cinema owners.
 
GDC will demonstrate Espedeo Supra-5000 in a mini-theatre at CinemaCon 2022, scheduled from April 25 to 28 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in Milano Ballroom II, located on the Promenade level. GDC will use the opportunity to showcase other Espedeo products, including the Espedeo PM-2000B Polarized 3D System to attendees. Attendees will be able to experience the Supra-5000’s image quality using DLP technology and the world’s leading ALPD 4.0 technology; and the immersive sound of DTS:X for IAB support to demonstrate Supra-5000’s built-in professional cinema audio processor with IAB rendering. Interested delegates can RSVP here or contact GDC to arrange an individual meeting with a sales consultant at us-sales@gdc-tech.com.
 
The Supra-5000 demonstrates the best possible all-in-one DCI projection system from renowned technologists: GDC, Appotronics, and Texas Instruments. Supra-5000 is the world’s smallest, quietest, and lightest ceiling-mounted DCI-compliant laser projector with powerful built-in features. It is specifically designed for in-auditorium installation (with no hush box) in commercial mini-theatres and other venues such as private home cinemas, hotels, private screening rooms, and yachts. 
 
“We are thrilled with the cinema industry’s rapid adoption of Espedeo Supra-5000. We design and manufacture Supra-5000 specifically for the emerging boutique cinema market, which is the driver for the sales growth worldwide,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman, and CEO of GDC Technology Limited. “The mini-theatre and boutique cinema market is quickly growing globally. With Espedeo products, we are delivering the advanced cinema technology to our dealers and customers entering the emerging trend.”
 
“The launch of a small laser projector for micro cinemas couldn’t have come at a better time. We’re pleased with the bright, vivid image quality, and amazing color of GDC’s Supra-5000. It was easy to mount inside the auditorium which eliminated the cost to build a projection booth,” said Chris Johnson, CEO, Classic Cinemas.
