Russia: Kinoton Trains Cinema Technicians in Krasnodar
Kinoton's cinema technology seminars enjoy an excellent reputation internationally. They usually take place at the Kinoton Technology Center near Munich, Germany. Depending on the training requirements and the number of participants, however, courses can also be held at the facilities of foreign customers or Kinoton service partners. Recently Sandro Meinhardt, an experienced Kinoton service engineer, led a two-day intensive training course called "Digital Cinema for Technicians and Operators: Basics, Service and Maintenance" in the Russian city of Krasnodar.
Kinomonitor, a prominent Russian cinema chain that owns five modern multiplexes in Krasnodar alone, kindly made available one of its state-of-the-art projection booths and a DCP 30 LX Digital Cinema Projector for hands-on practice. The training was attended by 14 cinema engineers from Kinomonitor’s theaters and other cinemas in the Krasnodar area. The topics covered included color calibration and macro creation, firmware updates, replacement of parts, maintenance, and fault diagnosis and correction both on-site and via the Kinoton Remote Service System.
A professional interpreter bridged the language gap to make sure that all of the attendees could readily understand even the most complex technical information. At the end of the seminar, all of the participants were given the highest access authorization for the "MyKinoton" online service. As a result, they can now download spare parts catalogs, service manuals, and the configuration and diagnostic programs that are needed to set up and maintain DCP Digital Cinema Projectors.
Christoph Baur, Kinoton’s sales manager for Russia, says that "the seminar in Krasnodar was a great success. The attendees praised its great practical relevance and Mr. Meinhardt's comprehensive technical expertise. We are confident that this targeted knowledge transfer will help our customers get the most of their D-Cinema equipment."
