The Cinema Technology Community, an independent trade group, has created a new free membership level to help support people working in cinema technology.
The new membership level allows cinema professionals to six months of free access to all members-only content including presentations, white papers, handbooks, test materials, podcasts, magazines, more than 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 and videos.
“This new measure takes us a further step on from the measures we announced last week to extend all existing paid membership and sponsorships by six months while we face this crisis,” said CTC president Richard Mitchell. “This new membership level is our small way of giving back and helping to support the global cinema community that we all cherish being a part of. Through our range of deliverables and online resources we aim to enable our industry to remain together and connected during these incredibly difficult times.”
CTC recently announced an extensive deliverables plan for 2020 which includes supporting the industry with knowledge and expertise in key areas including the movie production workflow process, event cinema, sustainability, accessibility, the customer journey, end of VPF technology upgrade pathways, 3D consumer insights, diversity in cinema and a long-awaited new edition of CTC’s leading Digital Projection Handbook and some of these deliverables are now being fast tracked. CTC’s educational programme is also being rework with the potential for e-learning courses to be launched over the coming months on topics such as DCP creation.
