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. 

Post Production is post and prior—a lot of work taking other people’s material from dozens of sources and fitting it all into some other group's needs. Very technical.

Nice Stories About Hugo

It is nice to see people saying nice things about well done 3D. Obviously the corner has been turned on the production and post-production side. Whether the exhibition side will continue with low light levels and splotchy screens...well, that's a commersial issue – nothing to do with standards.
