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. 

MenuMeters for El Capitan is back

Just a quick note for those who need but can't find the open source OSX system monitoring tool MenuMeters, which got lost in the OSX 10.11 upgrade.

Go to: MenuMeters for OS X El Capitan 10.11

It works. It is a simple port and the changes are well explained by the author. There is an install quirk that the first time you double-click on the program that it won't install. Close the Preferences Application. Double-click on the menumeters preference pane again and it will install.
