Cinema Test Tools for the non-Technical Manager – Post Installation Quality Assurance Has Begun

Cinema Test Tools is a free resource for the cinema industry, tuned most particularly for the non-technical manager. The tools include several DCPs, all with interesting means of testing the sound and picture quality for the interested by lightly trained staff. The lessons on sound and light are written to provide a foundation to communicate with the technician who must respond quickly and well to the information that they discover.

The key is a free Managers Walk Through Checklist that correlates with the many DCPs. It helps bring an understanding of the many nuances of the auditorium's situation in a straightforward way. 

Manice Goes English

Manice dot org has long been a great digital cinema resource...or one should say une resource de le cinéma numérique...first as a blog followed in 2008 by a more news and education format. The only trouble for many of us was that the information is in French.

Now, Manice dot net is available in English. It brings news and a great deal of dcinema background material and sports a glossary made for executives who just want the data without all the complications that one is usually presented with.

 

They don't seem to have an RSS feed yet, but when they do we will let you know, and add a stream to our new sources on the right side of the front page.

Ollivier Hillaire, publisher and editor of the sites, has great contacts in the field of digital cinema from the early days. It is good to see him continuing and expanding his success.

This comes on the heels of another EU DCinema news site converting its data to English, Frank de Neeve's Cineserver | Digital Cinema Deciphered site from the Netherlands (or Pays Bas as long as we are in the French motif.)

The EU has many of the same, yet many different problems that can't be solved in the same manner that integrators and exhibitors have done so in the US. Brining understanding to the client has a long-term goal of both of these respected entrepreneurs.
