Introducing – Tools for Cinema Quality Assurance


Cinema Test Tools for the Non-Technical Manager 

  • A free resource for the cinema industry
  • Tuned most particularly for the non-technical manager.
  • Tools include:
    • Several DCPs for testing the sound and picture quality
    • Lessons on sound and light
    • Written to help communicate with the technicians

Apres IBC 2011

IBC was conferences for your editor, with only a few minutes on the floor. We were really only there for digital cinema oriented things, and since we were at the RAI just a few months previously at CineEurope, the conferences and the data available was all pushed together. 

There were two excellent presentations on the science of the eye to kick off the DCinema conferences, again excellently organized by David Monk and John Graham for the EDCF.

See Yasmin Hashmi's page for some interesting 3D info. 

See the Creative Cow wrap up, which has its usual good coverage.

See the following attachment, which was my presentation on the doings of the ISDCF in 2011 - actually a follow-up since the last report in 2010.

If a few bits disappear, the oil company has to take tons of equipment back to the source and measure the sub-terrain again. The same production and post...except you ain't gonna get Clark Gable back to the shoot again.

CGI, X'Y'Z' to P3, there are so many things going on. Here's the news.

You know, I kept seeing that 3D stuff, and seeing that 3D stuff, and never getting it. Then I saw the same clips with a great audio system, and what do you know...the pictures looked better. 

There is a right way to do this and a wrong. There is faster and there is more faster. There are security issues and return on investment issues. just isn't the same anymore.
