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.

So far, Customer Experience Management (CEM) Technology has got me hyped. I'll spend the entire train ride to the show wondering why it isn't CEMT.

Digital Process Workflow at Createasphere

This press release is so buzz-word compliant that I almost threw it away. But the concept of a Digital Process Workflow at a convention actually sounds like a good idea.

I take no responsibility for breaking any one's BS detector just for reprinting the press release.

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.
