Abstract

Digital cinema (d-cinema) is the highest quality electronic motion imagery for entertainment. The cinema is presented in a theatrical environment, with high brightness projectors, high rate data transfer, and high resolution color imagery. The entertainment industry uses formats that are specific to film-based electronic imagery and there is a need for software tools to generate and manipulate test patterns for d-cinema systems. This report describes the principal software interfaces used to generate and view test imagery in connection with recent d-cinema system tests. The tools, which support the d-cinema quality measurement needs of the movie industry, are available on line.
