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.

Meanwhile, on the Apple front.

DCinema is full of encrypted data, and it was in this arena that the iPhone had a flaw. It is suspected that the Mac OS has a similar flaw. Some wonder whether this has been an intentionally placed back-door, but there is no evidence of that. There is a lesson though: Code must be tested publicly. SSL flaws have been written about for the last few years, even on an amateur site like this one.
