How cool movies in theaters
• How to twist Movie
Many who go to the cinema, but not many people know what is going on in the film projection.
With the advent of digital technology, film projectors are gone, as well as the principle of work of the projectionist. I think many will be interesting how the film is loaded in the cinema server.
Magic no no. A copy of the film usually comes to external HDD
It is assumed that we must copy it to the video server via USB. I do not know about others, but I was hurt at the thought, copy 200-250gb via USB (and worth the bus 2, 0 on our server)
Therefore the next step. Untwist the screws, pull out hard.
Turn off USB controller card and insert it into the pocket hard
Then paste it into the server.
In this hardware finishes.
You can make coffee and sits down at the monitor.
Enjoying media contents
In past our "Dumbo" on the disk is more trailers (for example the same Lion King), but in this case the server already has a copy of these trailers, so they do not touch.
Since the our cinema will show the film in 3D then accordingly we copy 3D copy. The first is the original file-movie with the original track. It should be copied in any way. 2 file it directly with the audio track (in my case, in Ukrainian language) On this CD there are 3 file. It Atmos track (who do not know, this Atmos audio output technology, it differs from the standard PCM) in our cinema has Atmos, so we copy it.
In general, it now remains only to press. Typically the film is copied 1, 5-2 hours. However, now there is a display of the session, so the copy speed drops 2-3 times. We make another cup of coffee and wait :)
That is not all. The server will not be able to play the movie without a license (KDM key)
Therefore, after he copied, you need to throw him a license (it looks like a file xml) comes to us by email. mail.
It registered serial numbers and media block of the projector, as well as the date from and to. Until that time, or after its completion, the film will not work. So far, the Dumbo there is no key, so will show as seen by the server at another example.
After all uploaded, you need to make a playlist (for convenience)
To be included commercial block advertising and trailers of upcoming premieres.
Along with the film, it comes to an agreement, which defines the list of trailers to be shown in every session of this film. Trailers usually 4-7 pieces. So you have time to gobble up half of the popcorn before the movie :)
