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 Online 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. 

TrueCrypt and NSA Lessons on Updating Projector Software

Science and R&D says it will keep moving data from the mystery to the usable.

From the NAB videos of John Hurst's logical pleas (posted at CineTechGeek) to Bruce Schneier's Disclosing vs. Hoarding Vulnerabilities article to the flurry of Heartbleed to the news of the well-used TrueCrypt's announcement...we should get the message: No matter the trauma, or threat of trauma, Upgrade Your Software and Firmware.
