Loudness in Cinema – IBC 2016 Presentation

The following are the speaker’s notes and slides from an IBC2016 Presentation. The topic is Loudness In Cinema. The audience were all professionals in the cinema field, so many of the slides that could have taken 30 minutes themselves were slid over in a few seconds.

Thank you; As a short introduction, I am the guy who is working on an open source Quality Assurance System for Cinema Projection Rooms, which I outlined here several years ago. Here is a 20 second update on that.

Another Future of Film

It seemed impossible that another view of Entertainment Technology focusing on the “Future of Film” was possible (or required) after 4 days of CinemaCon, 3 days of SMPTE Future of Cinema and 4 days of NAB, and a full weekly dose of Industry News from the Showbiz Sandbox podcast. But like a football replay from a stadium ringed with simultaneously exposing cameras, rocking back and forth over some hidden angles was beneficial – the Digital Hollywood event titled The Future of Film filled in several hidden holes in the very complicated perspective.

Lessons of Spectre and the Force (WIP)

Dolby has announced that the coming Star Wars Picture is strong with Dolby Vision and Atmos Force…a boson energy that we didn’t know was required when we spent our weekly food budget on Spectre when it opened in the Dolby Cinema | AMC Prime Burbank 16 last month. 

Ouch. Caveat Emptor Dolby said. They don’t control the bookings in that room and oh! by the way, a million to one goes down to the normal state of the dual-laser system of 5000:1. Oh! yes, and by the way, even though it wasn’t in Atmos either, the Dolby Vision entity is a non-vectored mediating boson field that allows for the most perfect of electro-magnetic-mechanical air/photon wave and particle dissemination possible regardless of whether it has had the nuanced half-alluded-to hand wave Jedi mastering artechnology applied to the digits at all. 

I don’t doubt Dolby marketing in the least now. Even though the research elves have found that xenon bulb 4K projectors have a hard time getting to 1800:1 in contrast, they have told me that most Post houses have advanced to 5000:1. In fact, let’s parse what was actually said.

Captioning CinemaCon 2013–CineTech Geek

James at Cine Tech Geek has a major project on captioning and accessibility in the works. It is quite ambitious as should be an incredible summary of all that the dcinema industry and the various clients have been through and need to know for the future.

Part of that effort is this series of YouTube videos from CinemaCon 2013.

Laser Light Engines, LLC, Again the First

Before Barco made their laser debut at CinemaCon last year, and before Christie showed Hugo at IBC 6 months later, Laser Light Engines of (near Boston) made a public demonstration of a Sony projector with a retrofit laser package at the SMPTE event prior to NAB. In the last year there have been several tentative announcements about working systems that might be delivered in the next year, but again, LLE has done it first.

The press release is attached, and not surprisingly it is missing the partners name. In big business this means that the partner has their own plans for their announcement. Let’s see if there is anything else to parse:
