This is a QuickTime version of one of several free DCPs (Digital Cinema Package) that are available at CinemaTestTools.com –
They help the non-technical cinema theater manager to test the picture and audio performance of their auditoriums. Use this with the also Free Online Checklist. These tools provide an easy method for regular and concise reports to the tech team.
Why is this needed? Because since digital equipment gives generally good sound and picture...and is so expensive...there are rarely any trained people in the facility who can look and listen with the experience of days gone by.
This is part of the Manager's Walk Through Series.
The purpose is to be able to catch problems before the audience becomes the Quality Control victim, and communicate the problem well and quickly to the tech team.
