Beta Test – New, Online, Managers WalkThrough Form

We are preparing the launch of an exciting new service. Out with the old paper form of the Managers WalkThrough Report Form – In with the Online Forms. Give it a try.

Use the link on the line above, or click on the “Routines” pulldown in the Menu above.  Select Managers WalkThrough Report Form on your phone or tablet or portable computer. Get settled in the auditorium that you want to check  the sound and picture. When ready, have someone start up one of the Cinema Test Tools DCPs …and click away on the online form.

If everything is cool, all stays nice and simple. But if any of the answers requires that you pass information to the tech (for example), the form magically opens up, giving you a place to tell everyone what you saw or heard.

Like the DCPs and lessons, the new Online Form Series is free. We hope you will use it for every theater every week…or more if you want. The Safety and Security Form is just about ready and the Monday CleanUp will also be released soon. Read further to learn about emailing the form and other Q&A.

Align1 – 2K

Align1 is stolen from a technician’s dream, then modified for the non-technical user.

Its simplicity hides a wonderful secret. Each time it is seen and heard, the user gains a little bit more ability to distinguish more of what their perceptions are gathering. Eventually their eyes will be like those of a professional colorist, seeing tints in the grey, or distortion in a tone, as a golden ear’d audiophile would. And with other lessons, others of these Manager’s Walk Through Series, they’ll learn how to describe what they perceive to the tech in an efficient way.

Good luck to us all. This is the 2K SMPTE Compliant version. Don’t forget to download the checklist~!

Let’s see what happens with this Vimeo attempt at the quicktime file…

Report Form – Manager’s Walk Through

Hi. This is the download page for the paper version of the Manager’s Walk Through Checklist.

Like the online version, the form is used in conjunction with the Cinema Test Tools DCPs – which you can also download from this site. It is nice to have a checklist to run through as you examine your auditorium, to remind you of something that you might forget, or to make detailed notes for the tech who needs as much refined information as possible.

However you use it, please let us know if there is something we left out, something that would make the form more efficient for you.

Let us know, successes and suggestions for improvement are what we live for.

Thanks and enjoy everything.

There is no pass code for this document. Just click the I am not a robot box…unless, of course, you are a robot.  

Align1 – 4K

Align1 is stolen from a technician’s dream, then modified for the non-technical user.

The 4K version of this test tool is being remade. Not Available Now.

Its simplicity hides a wonderful secret. Each time it is seen and heard, the user gains a little bit more ability to distinguish more of what their perceptions are gathering. Eventually their eyes will be like those of a professional colorist, seeing tints in the grey, or distortion in a tone, as a golden ear’d audiophile would. And with other lessons, others of these Manager’s Walk Through Series, they’ll learn how to describe what they perceive to the tech in an efficient way.

Good luck to us all.

This Vimeo link has a Quicktime file that shows the basics of the DCP, except that the subtitles are burned into the QT file.
