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.

CinemaCon/NAB Split

For a number of years one could land in Vegas and within a two week period see CinemaCon and NAB ...sometimes one was immediately after, sometimes the other.

The best years where when there was enough time that the European Digital Cinema Forum – the EDF – could put together a bus tour with members and friends to various manufacturers, studios, post and cinema facilities and...studios. Great people talking on a bus. Alas, the schedule in 2016 was too close. One fears that the schedule in 2017 might be too far apart. More as it happens.

This year it is: 

CinemaCon – 27-30 March

NAB/SMPTE Weekend of Cinema – 22-23 April

NAB – 24-27 April
