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. 

Sound Immersion at AES

Great to see an article where Immersion doesn't mean Immersive...Mel Lambert reports from the AES-LA 2016 for CineMontage, the Editors Guild Magazine.

The 141st Audio Engineering Society Convention, held recently in the Los Angeles Convention Center’s West Hall, attracted a record West Coast attendance, with a wide cross-section of brands showing their wares on the exhibition floor and companion demo rooms. Aimed squarely at evolving technologies via a special focus on new markets and trends, the four-day convention took the highly appropriate theme of Immersed in Audio. “That pretty well sums up where [our industry] needs to move forward in the world of new audio technologies,” noted AES president John Krivit. “Sound for picture, networked audio and game audio were all covered here with a full technical program of workshops, tutorials and exhibits.”
