The SX-3000 Standalone Integrated Media Block™ (“SX-3000 Standalone IMB®”) is the industry’s first Standalone IMB which eliminates the need for an external file server. To complete GDC IMB solution, GDC Enterprise Series Storage, which was specially designed for SX-3000 IMB, offers a scalable and reliable storage with up to 8TB of redundant hot swappable storage serving differing exhibitor needs.

Key Benefits

Lower Maintenance Costs
The SX-3000 IMB eliminates the need for an external file server. It seamlessly integrates with all DLP Cinema® projectors and comes with SMS software for playback control and content management.

Lower Operation Costs
The SX-3000 IMB allows long distance content streaming and remote access via gigabit Ethernet connection.

High Frame Rate and All Image Resolution Support
The SX-3000 IMB supports high frame rate content in 2D and 3D (48 & 60fps per eye) and all image resolution including SD, HD, 2K and 4K (optional).

Comprehensive Support for Alternative Content
The SX-3000 IMB supports HDMI input, 3G-SDI input and network live streaming1 (optional). It also supports image scaling to 2K.

Live 3D Support1 (Optional)
The SX-3000 IMB comes integrated with 3D Demuxing (side-by-side) which makes receiving high-quality 3D broadcasts possible. It also provides a built-in integrated 3D decoder to seamlessly support 3D Live broadcast without requiring additional decoder.

Dedicated Storage Solution
GDC Enterprise Series Storage, including Enterprise Storage and Enterprise Storage Plus, is a dedicated storage module designed for SX-3000 IMB, for movie content management. Both storage devices provide large storage options of up to 8TB of redundant hot swappable storage2, which can store approximately 80 movies (i.e. 100GB per movie).

High Reliability
GDC Enterprise Series Storage comes with 5 hot swappable data drives2 and is based on enterprise hardware RAID 5 technology allowing it to remain operational in the event of a single drive failure, thereby minimizing downtime. The redundant power supply of Enterprise Storage Plus delivers a significant improvement in overall system stability.

High Flexibility
The hot swappable data drive on GDC Enterprise Series Storage can easily be attached or detached, making it possible to quickly switch content from one screen to another. The CRU port on Enterprise Storage Plus provides one more interface for content and key delivery.

Easy Installation
GDC Enterprise Series Storage is connected to SX-3000 IMB with eSATA cable and is easily inserted into projection pedestals.
