Cinema Test Tools for the non-Technical Manager – Post Installation Quality Assurance Has Begun

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 Managers 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. 

Democratization Everywhere

We've seen it in Post, with software editing tools being released for free or low-cost-monthly. We've seen it with cameras with specs impossible to attain a few years ago and impossible to avoid now. Of course, with software there is the need for a great computer and great deal of storage, and cameras need lenses. 

So it was a pleasure to meet some people at CineGear 2016 who offer all sorts of tools a la the great Panavision, but on a scale that Panavision would probably go out of business trying to match. And even though they promised that I would win this handy device at CineExpo, and didn't arrange it like they insinuated, give their site a look: Kodak PIXPRO SP360 4K Dual Action Camera from Borrow Lenses
