  • TOKYU RECREATION CO.,LTD.  Enters the Future of Cinema with Solutions from GDC, including Media Servers,
    Theatre Management System and Award-winning Cinema Automation CA2.0 Technology
LAS VEGAS, April 27, 2023 -- GDC Technology Limited (‘GDC’), a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today that 109 Cinemas, owned by TOKYU RECREATION CO.,LTD. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President: Shinzo Kanno) selected GDC solutions for its newest cinema, including SR-1000 Integrated Media Block™, TMS-2000, and the award-winning Cinema Automation (CA2.0) designed to fully automate work while reducing the cost associated with booth operations.

109 Cinemas is Tokyu’s 20th cinema location, which opened on April 14 is comprised of eight screens. The cinema has 752 Shinjuku premium seats (Class A and S) with a total capacity of 2,000 seats, all-RGB laser projection and is located on the 9th and 10th floors of Tokyu Kabukicho Tower, 1-29-1 Kabukicho, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo 160-0021, Japan. To commemorate the opening of the theatre works related to Ryuichi Sakamoto, the sound supervisor of all theatres, are being screened for a limited time only from April 14th (Friday) to May 18th (Thursday). The "Ryuichi Sakamoto Premium Collection" includes several screenings such as Bernardo Bertolucci's "Sheltering Sky," one of Sakamoto's masterpieces of film music, and "Tony," which has many fans both in Japan and abroad since its release in 2005. Guests are able to enjoy the finest movie music with the theatre sound "SAION -SR EDITION-" supervised by Mr. Sakamoto.

Tokyu Recreation's theatre manager, Yusuke Hirono, stated that they strive to create a unique and immersive experience at their "sensory-opening movie theatre" by offering luxurious amenities and innovative technology that goes beyond the norm. They chose GDC's solutions because of the company's exceptional technology and customer service, as well as their proven product reliability.

“One of the pleasures of working in the cinema industry is constantly meeting with our industry partners, such as Tokyu Recreation to improve the moviegoing experience,” said Dr. Man-Nang Chong, founder, chairman and CEO of GDC Technology Limited. “The installation of our newest products at 109 Cinemas provides them with the security of knowing their guests will enjoy the best possible moviegoing experience. Tokyu Recreation selecting GDC is a testament to the fact we have been on the right path for over 20 years.”
                                                                           
Key Features and Benefits of Cinema Automation CA2.0
CA2.0 incorporates the SCL Centralized Playback Server Series – an integrated centralized storage and playback system designed to streamline content management, and leverages machine intelligence to increase efficiency while dramatically reducing the need for human intervention.
 
SCL series servers offer each auditorium access to a wide assortment of movies from a centralized server without the need for local storage attached to every media server. SCL series servers are designed with scalability and reliability in mind. Their storage capacity can be customized based on the number of screens (from four to 30) and the number of movie titles (up to thousands of DCPs) to be stored and streamed to all the auditoriums.
 
With the storage capacity increased by more than 100 times when compared to the traditional local storage of a cinema media server, SCL series servers are designed to meet exhibitors' demand for an “online” content solution that enables them to maintain competitiveness in today’s market. By integrating SCL series servers with Cinema Automation CA2.0, manual operation and human intervention are significantly reduced.
 
In addition to automating the complex procedure of manually preparing or editing show playlists, CA2.0 incorporates other impressive advances, such as:
  • CA2.0 intelligently manages equipment power supply and assures industry-standard screening quality automatically by smart testing and analysis
  • SCL Centralized servers can ingest DCP at USB3.0 maximum speed while live-streaming content to all the media servers in a 30-plex
  • CA2.0 fail-safe technology eliminates interruption in the highly unlikely event of a centralized server failure to ensure that each and every screening continues undisturbed

SR-1000 Standalone IMB is the only solution currently available that supports series 1, 2, 3 and 4 DLP Cinema® projectors, making it the best possible solution for exhibitors with series 1 projectors that need the server replaced.
 
Key Features and Benefits
  • Built with embedded power electronics used in medical and military applications
  • Designed and built with cache memory to playback content without hard drive storage
  • Designed for near-zero maintenance and minimal total cost of ownership
  • Allows remote access to the projector SMS with wireless tablets anywhere in the cinema
