Jamie Hughes from Gwyn Hall, Neath, attended the UKCA’s Annual Conference. This is what he thought:
“From this conference I realised how fast technology is moving, from ticketing apps to digital signage and poster cases, to the emergence of laser projection.
Technology is working hard to make cinema more inclusive and the closed caption technology has the ability to break down language barriers and give people more opportunity to use the welsh language.
If you are looking at upgrading your digital projectors it’s worth looking at laser projection as even though it’s a bit more expensive, there are no lamp costs, plus it can live in a small pod instead of needing well ventilated, sound proof booth.
Sometimes knowing what and when to programme films can be challenging but more and more analytics software can help ensure the correct decisions are made or at least reduce the risks”
We are already booking in meetings with service providers who can offer apps, data analytics and e-ticketing systems.
