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.

Conference for Visual Media Production - London/12-13 Nov

CVMP – Conference for Visual Media Production - (12-13 November) aims to bring together the worlds of academic algorithmic research and post production to discuss new advancements and innovative applications.

It is also a unique opportunity to network and pick each other’s brains. Who knows what ideas may form?

[Editor's Note: So says the press release for this conference. Looks like there is some potential here, and the location is right (although some of the papers seem a little obscure.) Does anyone have experience with this conference? Is there a back-story to the assertion of their marketing - it almost seems like they are trying to resurrect a dying brand.

“CVMP offered a good mix of research people in graphics and vision as well as industry experts in production and post-production. Surprisingly for such a smaller conference, papers, speeches and posters were continuously of good quality. The time I spent in London was a good investment.”
Jurgen Stauder, Technical Advisor, Thomson Corporate Research

Who should attend?

• Chief Technical Officers
• Technical Directors
• Pipeline Architects
• Engineers
• Academic Researchers in Signal / Image / Video Processing, Graphics and Computer Vision
