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. 

Password Ideas...There Will Be No Sympathy

It is probably past time anyway, but since the recent password losses by LinkedIn and a few other companies, it would be a good weekend task to come up with a great password set and start going down the list. Change everything.

I spot something easy and obvious in front of me, for example a book. Well, I used to. I don't seem to have any books anymore so I can't give an example. But I remember the American Heritage Dictionary was the basis for passwords for a long time. AmHeDi for simple sites, Am9He5Di1 for more complicated sites that might give access to spending my money.


There are some who say to pick a song: I Got To Get You Out of My Life become IGTGYOOML, then add number and lower case letters over time.


Good luck. Whatever you do, do it soon.
