BKSTS SOCIETY NEWS

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear All, It is Autumn / Fall and as I look out of my window the leaves are beginning to drop, creating a glorious gold carpet over the lawn. The world as we have known it seems to be falling too and it is not such a pretty sight…but we need to remember the words of Albert Einstein - ‘in the middle of difficulties lies opportunity.’ I would like to remind you all that our Society is unique today as it is ‘run for the members by the members’ and to that end I encourage everyone to contribute to ensure the wellbeing of our beloved organisation...can you help to move our Society forward? We have been through tough days as a Society and we are not out of the wood as yet. We have a lot to do to ensure that the Society is relevant for today. If we are to survive, adaptation is necessary. I believe that our Society has great opportunities ahead in the areas of accreditation, training, educational events and knowledge exchange. The Society will be continuing to accredit courses relevant to the craft skills within the content creation and exhibition industry. Training is vital as we move into new technologies and the Training Committee has embarked on a season of lectures relating to new and exciting technologies. These lectures are held on the 1st Monday of each month at the BFI Southbank. I encourage you and especially our younger members to attend the lectures as they will give you insight to and an overview of current technology and working practices. These sessions are also a great place for networking, so vital for the advancement of best working practice in our industry. If you are not able to attend it will be possible to obtain an edited version as a podcast which will be available on our website. The website is moving forward and Council and I want it to become the heart of our Society, a place to exchange and gain knowledge. To that end we all need to use it more. I know that some members do not have access to the internet - therefore drop us a note so that we can keep you updated by post - but we do need to embrace the advantages and immediacy of the internet. If you have access to a computer I need you to check that your details are correct on our Database by going to www.bksts.com and logging on to your personal account using your membership number. It is essential that you keep your records up to date, especially if you move or change jobs, otherwise we will not be able to keep in touch. Phil has sent me a reminder that it is nearly time to send out invoices for 2009 membership - that means Christmas must be on the way! The invoices will be sent out over Christmas / New Year for the 2009 subscription. As subscriptions are the life blood of our Society, I ask if you can allow for your subscription when you do your Christmas budget. It does help if you can pay promptly as it keeps costs down and means we can use the money to provide improved services. In closing, the Awards Ceremony has slipped into early 2009 due to the current World economic decline. We will be making the final arrangements for this important event by the end of November. Again if you have any nominations for worthy people within our industry to receive awards do let us know as soon as possible. The Bernard Happé Lecture is to take place on 1st December at BFI Studio, Southbank and the Guest presenter is Hazel Wright from the Royal Opera House and her subject will be ‘Opera and Ballet on the Big Screen’. Watch the website for more information. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events. Thank you for your continued support in these challenging times and with your help we will survive. Best wishes Roland Brown President BKSTS

BKSTS MEMBERS NEWS Murray Forrest

BKSTS FELLOW MURRAY FORREST has retired after 43 years with the Australian film industry. He started out in the business at Colorfilm, and after joining Atlab, eventually becoming its Managing Director, helped to transform the company and expand it from a small black and white laboratory operation that serviced newsreels and TV and Film Australia documentaries, into the broad-based creative services and distribution business that Atlab is today. Murray has given devoted service to the industry during his long career, and has a distinguished history in the business. He was the founding chair of Ausfilm, a director of the Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA), a past president of the Australian Cinema Pioneers, a past Board Member of the Federation of Producers of Asia, and a former Chair of the SMPTE, who awarded him a Fellowship. Murray intends to continue to contribute to the industry by continuing as Chairman of the Motion Picture Industry Benevolent Society.

PEOPLE IN PROJECTION

NEW DOREMI DIGITAL CINEMA SERVER

SONY 3D ADAPTOR

NETHERLANDS Frank De Neeve and Roloff de Jeu

It was good to meet and talk with two projectionists from the Netherlands at the recent IBC Digital Cinema events. Frank de Neeve (left) is already known to many Cinema Technology readers from his interesting articles on a wide variety of cinema-related subjects, from tracking film cans to the future of digital distribution, and from his review of the Cineccita Nuremberg and his report on the Cinemeccanica factory. He is one of those guys who is always busy, managing to combine his journalism (he writes regularly for Holland Film Nieuws magazine) with a full time projectionist’s job at the Mustsee Delft cinema. Roloff de Jeu (right) has since 1997 been a volunteer projectionist at the 52 seat art-house cinema Filmhuis Griffioen in Amstelveen. Running since 1975 it is part of a cultural centre of the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam, situated in the student housing campus. He is now also the coordinator and programmer of this cinema, as well as being as a freelance journalist and trainer in editing and post-production software. Roloff is one of the breed of cinema enthusiasts (would it be too unfair to use the word ‘eccentric’?) who loves all aspects of film, and whose hobbies include collecting all sorts of cinemarelated things. He has fully embraced the new technologies and under the self-assigned nom-de-plume of ‘cinemamaniac’ has a company called Pulp-o-rama (you can contact him on info@pulp-o-rama.nl ). For a taste of his wide ranging enthusiasms and to see his postcard collections and photographs that he has taken of cinemas around the world, do take a look at www.flickr.com/photos/pulp-orama/collections/

IMAX® DIGITAL JOINT VENTURE

IMAX and Cineplexx Kinobetriebe Gmbh, the largest exhibitor in Austria, have announced a joint venture agreement to install three IMAX® theatres in Austria. The deal marks IMAX’s first joint venture in Europe, and continues the company’s global expansion with its new digital projection system. To date, IMAX has signed contracts for more than 180 IMAX digital projection systems. 18 are currently in operation with 45-50 scheduled to be in operation by the end of 2008. The first theatre is expected to be installed in the city of Graz during the first quarter of 2009, followed by the second, in Vienna during the second quarter of 2009, with a third in the city of Hohenems during the fourth quarter of 2009. All three theatres will be equipped with IMAX’s new digital projection system (see article on page 37). The MDs of Cineplexx Kinobetriebe say that installing IMAX theatres in their multiplexes will be of enormous benefit to their business and their customers, since it will provide a premium immersive movie experience that Austrian consumers will be delighted to have. IMAX’s new digital projection system will be retrofitted into the existing auditoriums, and combined with IMAX’s joint venture business model, is expected to offer to Cineplexx Kinobetriebe Gmbh an economical and highly efficient way to enter the IMAX business. IMAX say that this joint venture agreement is an important first step for their digital growth strategy in Europe, and that a partnership with Austria’s leading exhibitor will help to strengthen the IMAX brand in the region and expand the audience base. IMAX’s digital projection system delivers The IMAX Experience® and helps drive profitability for studios, exhibitors and IMAX theatres by eliminating the need for film prints, increasing program flexibility and ultimately increasing the number of movies shown on IMAX screens. The system can run both IMAX and IMAX® 3D presentations.

AAM TRANSMITS BY SATELLITE Arts Alliance Media (AAM) successfully transmitted the 2008 Palme d’Or winning film, Entre Les Murs, in a full digital cinema package (DCP) via satellite, direct to the library server at Circuit George Raymond (CGR) CinĂŠmas’ megaplex site in Bordeaux. CGR CinĂŠmas is one of France’s largest cinema chains. The test transmission, of Entre Les Murs, distributed by Haut et Court, saw AAM using their new content delivery platform - Arqiva’s Content Delivery Network. The 216 GB file was transmitted and loaded onto the server at CGR Villenave d’Ornon without any operator intervention. Satellite transmission of digital films to cinemas is widely seen as the future of distribution, moving on from the current system of shipping digital cinema processed films on hard drives, resulting in considerable time and cost savings. Rich Phillips, AAM’s Head of Technical Operations and a member of the BKSTS Cinema Technology Committee, commented “This is a first for AAM and we are pleased to have established the capabilities of our Content Delivery Platform, and believe that this test demonstrates the potential for future satellite delivery of content to cinemas.â€? Arqiva Satellite & Media are working with AAM to provide delivery services for digital cinema releases, and also to provide satellite support for live events into cinemas. Arts Alliance Media has installed 374 digital cinema screens to date, including over 100 in France as part of the conversion of all CGR’s 400 screens to digital.

Cinema an integral part of IBC Jim Slater reports on this year’s event

It is many years since the annual IBC exhibition and conference was known just as a broadcasting show, and these days IBC is for everyone involved in the creation, management and delivery of content for the whole entertainment industry, including cinema exhibition, which has been forming a growing part of IBC over the last ten years. This year’s attendance at the RAI conference centre in Amsterdam broke all records, with 49,250 visitors and 1400 stands, filling every square metre of every one of the RAI halls, with outside exhibits also packed into every available space.

Toilet Humour? Dion Hanson tells the tale of a cinema that he knew which used the Philips pulsed lamp projector system..... The Classic, Sheffield had a pair of FP20S projectors, and shortly after installation the cinema complained that they shut down every night at 8pm. After much investigation by engineers, no fault could be found, but in order to sort out what was happening, it was arranged that an engineer would remain on site one evening, so as to be there to see what happened at 8pm. Sure enough, at 8pm the projector lamps went out, but it didn’t take the engineer long to spot the cause. 8pm was the time of the sales interval, during which all the ladies rushed to the loo and subsequently flushed them. This caused a drop in water pressure which caused the lamps’ safety circuitry to shut them down! A cold-water header tank was installed just for the projector water-cooling system, and that soon solved the problem.

COMPETITION CHRISTMAS QUIZ

Christmas Quiz

This year’s quiz is about observation, something projectionists world wide are good at when looking through the porthole. In the good old days the ports were so small that you literally only observed a small part of the screen. This helped him to concentrate on the top right hand corner for the cue dots. In true tradition the pictures below are only part of a larger one that has appeared somewhere in this years editions of Cinema Technology. So search out Volume 21 Nos 1-2-3-4. The good news is that this year we have a prize for the ďŹ rst correct set of answers drawn at the January Cinema Technology Committee meeting. Jack Roe will be supplying and presenting the prize in the form of a (post) Christmas hamper to the value of ÂŁ100, well worth receiving just as the bills are arriving on your doorstep at the end of January. Send your answers - STATING THE PICTURE NUMBER FOLLOWED BY THE ISSUE NUMBER AND PAGE NUMBER ON WHICH THE ORIGINAL COMPLETE PICTURE APPEARS - to cinematech@btinternet.com. Or telephone 0116 279 322 giving the above information along with contact details ... and GOOD LUCK! The Christmas Quiz is kindly sponsored by Jack Roe (CS) Ltd. Number 1

XDC’s

Ushio -

Portuguese deployment

green is the colour

180 digital screen rollout XDC, the leading Pan-European digital cinema service company, and ZON Lusomundo, the largest cinema chain in Portugal have signed an exclusive agreement for the deployment of digital cinema systems in 180 of ZON Lusomundo’s cinema screens in Portugal. The agreement signed between ZON Lusomundo and XDC includes the roll out of DCI-compliant projection systems co-financed by the Virtual Print Fee (VPF) model. Rollout is scheduled to begin in January 2009 with an initial commitment of 100 screens throughout the rest of the year. Under the terms of the agreement, XDC will exclusively install DCI-compliant digital projection systems: Barco 2K Cinema projectors and XDC’s CineStoreŽ Solo G3 D-Cinema servers. XDC will also implement a fully integrated and networked solution in each complex, thanks to its advanced Theatre Management System and Central Library, the XDC’s CineStoreŽ Plaza. This partnership with ZON Lusomundo will be the first digital cinema network in the southern part of Europe and XDC expect to announce additional deployment deals in other countries soon in order to reach 1000 installed digital screens across Europe before the end of 2009.

98% recycling achieved Just over a year ago Ushio’s Harima (Japan) plant became the first Xenon manufacturing plant in the world to become ISO14001 certified, a standard for environmentally friendly production. In the company’s latest quarterly reports it was stated that the recycling ratio in Xenon production had reached an average of 98%, almost meeting the target of zero emission. About 5 years ago Ushio introduced the High Efficiency Series of lamps which give, depending on lamp type and projector, proven 15% to 35% more light at same power. These lamps give at significantly lower power the same screen brightness as conventional lamps. Today the energy saving can exceed ÂŁ80 per lamp and in future it will only increase. This helps to save the environment and your money. The reduced power also leads to slower deterioration of the lamp, which is acknowledged by Ushio with a 50% extended warranty when lamps are used in the so-called “eco modeâ€?. To learn more about Ushio’s environmental protection activities, including their annual sustainability report, go to http://www.ushio.co.jp/en/eco/index.html Ushio’s Nils Beuker also points out that the Ushio lamp Angela is holding (page 62) has been de-gassed.

Denis Kelly of the Cinema Technology Committee has been taking a look at ...

Cinema in Letchworth Most of us assume that New Towns were a new concept, created by post war planners. The truth is that they are simply brasher, less sophisticated versions of the Garden Cities projects of the early 20th Century.

HISTORY SHOWMANSHIP The article in the last issue on the importance of showmanship when Ben-Hur was initially screened led to a number of responses telling me that this type of requirement for special care when showing new movies was by no means unusual, and many of our more mature projectionists actually learned on the job the vital part that showmanship could and should play in making going to the cinema a special event. Mike Taylor of the PPT sent some interesting ‘instructions to projectionists’ and even individual ‘cue sheets’ that were sent out by the management of National Theatres Inc., an American chain of cinemas who formed a new company called ‘Cinemiracle International Inc.’ to promote the Cinemiracle system, described alongside. Cinerama subsequently bought out Cinemiracle and the film Windjammer was added to the attractions of that company. It is a coincidence that the film is 50 years old this year. The star of the film is the vessel ‘Christian Radich’, and Mike’s photo shows the ship when she was in Liverpool during July of this year to promote Liverpool’s Capital of Culture 2008 and to start the Tall Ships Race 2008.

That really was showmanship II INTRODUCTION TO CINEMIRACLE by Elmer C Rhoden, President National Theatres Inc. April 1958. Los Angeles, California. Louis De Rochemont has selected a challenging epic story for the first Cinemiracle presentation. A story about boys going to sea to be trained on an old fashioned sailing ship. The Windjammer ‘Christian Radich’ in her conflict with the sea provides the young cadets with every variety of difficult and challenging experiences. For the first time you will experience life on board a Windjammer, and share the thrills through the eyes of Cinemiracle. It gives you a new experience in seeing motion pictures with a scope that matches the vision of the human eye. You will watch wall to wall projection and hear 7 track stereo Hi Fi sound. We at National Theatres Inc. are most happy to play a part in the continuing development of the motion picture, thereby bringing to the theatre patron a greater measure of enjoyment.

Windjammer Cue Sheets for the projectionists - they really did have to watch the movie as well!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR WINDJAMMER CHANGEOVER INSTALLATION For a changeover in Windjammer it is necessary to realign A and C machines and adjust projector and screen masking. It is NOT necessary to change the water jackets and gigolos since the total width of each Windjammer A, B, C panel is less than a Cinerama picture panel. Two adjustable lens mounts and a set of alignment loops will be supplied with the Windjammer film. The adjustable lens mounts are to be installed in A and C projectors. They are used to register the picture vertically from section to section in the same manner that you now use the framing knob for horizontal alignment. This device is also used to blend the match lines from section to section. 1. To install these units, first remove the existing lens adaptor and insert the lens in the adjustable mount. Next, lock the lens in this new adaptor with the Allen set screw which is located on the side of the barrel of the shifter. 2. Install the complete assemblies in A and C machines. Be sure that the lens shifting adjustment knob is at the center of travel. 3. Project A and B target films together. Before attempting to line up the projectors be sure that the gigolo teeth are centered. They must be clear of the light black vertical line near the edge of each panel. These lines must be superimposed. The color blocks are then matched for correct magnification. 4. Repeat the above using B and C projectors. 5. Remove the target film. Project the picture print to be used and make final adjustments using the lens shifting devices. NOTE: The A and C panels of the Windjammer are mirror images and are ‘flopped’ in the gate so that the emulsion is towards the lens. No changes are necessary on the sound equipment for Windjammer.
