Introducing – Tools for Cinema Quality Assurance


Cinema Test Tools for the Non-Technical Manager 

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 Online 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. 

3D Lab in the Middle East - Real Vision

An invite to be part of the Middle East’s first “3D LAB”

Clyde DeSouza of Real Vision is pleased to announce that twofour54, a Government of UAE initiative, has appointed Real Vision to consult and help create the region’s first Stereoscopic 3D Lab at their media zone campus in the capital, Abu Dhabi.

The 3D Lab was inaugurated last week, and has been well received by the press.

In a nutshell the 3D Lab has been built to encourage best practices in stereoscopic 3D production.

Production studios and professionals from the GCC, Arabian gulf region, and India have already shown keen interest to attend workshops to be conducted at the 3D Lab, and to meet like minded professionals in this collaborative environment.

Mutually beneficial Opportunity:

The 3DLab welcomes hardware and software manufacturers to place on permanent loan, equipment and NFR versions of software, which will be exposed to regional production houses and potential clients.

The 3DLab can act as showcase and will not be polarized or biased toward any one technology or vendor.

Feel free to contact Clyde in this regard.
