Cinema Automation CA2.0
The revolutionary CA2.0 from GDC is the first-ever centralized solution to provide comprehensive automated management of content storage and playback, show scheduling, power supply and screening quality – providing exhibitors the best possible solution to save time, effort and cost. CA2.0 has already been deployed and proven at over 300 screens in China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore and US.
GDC CA2.0 incorporates the SCL-2000 Centralized Storage Playback Solution, 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.
The SCL-2000 is truly a game-changer in that it is the world’s first solution capable of playback of 1,000 movies to as many as 14 screens from a centralized server, greatly increasing programming flexibility and eliminating the need for local storage.
- The system intelligently manages equipment power supply and assures screening quality automatically.
- Its sophisticated fail-safe design helps eliminating interruptions by ensuring that every screening continues undisturbed in the highly unlikely event of a central server failure.
