GDC Technology, a leading global provider of digital cinema solutions, announced today that its Espedeo Supra-5000 RGB Plus laser phosphor cinema projector was awarded “Best of Show” from “Residential Systems” and “TWICE,” selected by a team of industry judges from each respected publication. Best of Show at CEDIA celebrates the best custom installations and home entertainment technology launches at CEDIA Expo. The “Residential Systems” entries were judged on-site through the lens of the residential integrator, while “TWICE” entries were examined from the perspective of a consumer electronics retailer.
GDC debuted the Espedeo Supra-5000 RGB Plus Laser Phosphor Cinema Projector along with Espedeo Ceiling Mount and 3D Polarized System with more than 30% luminous efficiency at CEDIA Expo 2021 held September 1-3 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN. Espedeo 3D Polarized System is designed for easy installation which can be hung with the projector on a ceiling; its 3D polarizer automatically shifts to its 2D or 3D positions by analyzing the streaming images.
“Our debut at CEDIA Expo was the perfect environment to launch our multi-award winning Espedeo Supra-5000 RGB plus laser phosphor cinema projector to AV integrators,” explained Patrick Artiaga, senior director of business development, projector division. “During our demonstrations at CEDIA, compliments were received on the projector’s small form factor, quietness, and picture quality from those in attendance.”
Manufactured by GDC Technology in cooperation with Appotronics and Texas Instruments, this groundbreaking all-in-one DCI-compliant projection system is specifically designed for commercial mini-theatre exhibitors and private home cinema integrators to install the compact, extremely quiet, and lightweight projection system.
In addition to the two Best of Show CEDIA awards, Espedeo Supra-5000 also received the prestigious Red Dot 2020 award for its design and the Projection Expo 2021 Best of Show award for its technical features that open many doors for home theater integrators. The Espedeo Supra-5000 provides a true RGB 5,000-lumen, 2K-resolution laser projector solution that distinguishes itself in the cinema and high-end home theater worlds by featuring the capability to not only unencrypt a DCP (digital cinema package) to playback first-run motion pictures but also stream content from its HDMI port. Along with achieving full DCI-P3 color gamut, the Supra-5000 is built on a compact chassis and designed for quiet operation (less than 35dbA) for mounting directly inside screening rooms, yachts, or other confined spaces. It is all made possible by GDC’s proprietary technology that integrates a DCI-compliant media server, an integrated cinema processor, and a DMD (DLP chip) formatter board on one circuit card.
