Cinema Technology Community (CTC),
the not-for-profit independent trade organisation has announced the
commencement of its online educational cinema technology seminar series – CTC Tech
This new pre-recorded
series, launching today with new episodes fortnightly will focus on all areas
of cinema technology and is designed to provide educational resources for CTCs members
and the cinema industry.
“Our global members have been increasingly asking for more resources
from CTC to help them stay educated and support their continuous improvement. In the absence of the global trade show
calendar and the opportunities that affords our members, there’s a need now
more than ever to share ideas and to learn so that when our industry returns,
it does so providing the very best possible movie-going experience for
customers around the world. Our new
online seminar series will hopefully be another valuable resource for enabling
our members to plan for the future understanding the benefits of technology,”
explains Richard Mitchell, President of CTC.
This new recorded seminar series from CTC commences with a
commercially-focused session hosted by CTC Director Sarah Lewthwaite (also of Movio)
as she looks at the Customer Journey, how technology plays a vital role in the
various touch points exhibitors have with movie-goers and the impact Covid-19
is likely to play on the overall journey going forward.
With further episodes already planned on topics such as Restoring and
Uplifting Series 1 and Series 2 Projectors, Laser Projection Power Consumption
Savings, Single-Slide DCP Creation, Screen Technology and Amplifier Dynamic
Power, CTC is also actively encouraging submissions from across the industry
for future seminars.
“Whilst our team has been crafting some incredibly insightful content
alongside leading industry experts, this is a two-way conversation and we’re
keen to hear from across the industry about other topics that the community
wishes to understand better or that they themselves want to share with our global
membership,” Mitchell adds.
This latest initiative continues to build upon CTCs support of the
global cinema industry which recently saw the organisation create a free
6-month Community Membership which continues to attract significant attention.
Since launching the Community Membership programme, CTC has grown its
community to over 350 members in more than 60 countries each receiving an initial six-month free access to all members-only content including
presentations, white papers, handbooks, test materials, podcasts, magazines,
over ten hours of video content including CTC’s complete Women in Cinema series
and the CTC technology forum aimed at enabling the cinema community to seek advice,
share knowledge and expertise and remain connected by sharing words, pictures
CTC remains committed to supporting the global cinema industry during
this difficult period and remains positive about seeing our industry once again
welcoming movie-goers back to the best shared experience available.
