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.

Post-Installation Cinema Test Tools; USL LSS-100 and DTT Digital eXperience Guardian

Post-Installation Quality Control for the Cinema Auditorium is finally getting some tools fit for the modern digital age. Two companies are putting network products into the sector which, up until now, was only filled with multi-thousand dollar test rigs or hand held units. (No smear intended on the new Meyer Sound X12 and Harkness Screen test devices released in the last 6 months – both are nice hand held units and fit for their purpose.)

First, the USL LSS-100 Light & Sound Sensor measures sound pressure level, luminance and chromaticity from its mounted position on the back wall of the theater auditorium. The 2 degree spot measurement is transmitted to the user as XYZ and x, y points and CCT, with great precision. The audio section measures C weighted pink noise, giving the level in the room in tenths of a dB.

Testing!!! Audio Quality Control Possible (Meyer Sound)

Every convention brings a new tool for bring better audio or picture to the screen. If there is anyone left with the talent to use them regularly is a different essay. Perhaps someone has some data about how many cinemas don’t have any projectionists, or just one or two ‘booth attendants’ to ingest hard disks and…and whatever else is required in a digital cinema.

CineEurope will see a new device from Meyer Sound,
