Introducing – Tools for Cinema Quality Assurance


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.

There are too many variables to know before it is possible to understand how this will play out. It is an interesting experiment but it is playing with fire for everyone involved.

What they said - These are some of the interesting postings seen on the web recently. (There may be more than one a week.)

The technology of advice explained; from the societies we cherish, to consulting we rely upon, from the courses we need or give and the blogs we get our doses of data or read it here.
Full Disclosure: We recommend many courses, including our own.

Resources would be another name. People with their feet getting dirty on the street...then talking about it.

Societies really imply a lot of special efforts by individual. Here's some news from some of the many in this field.
