It’s only a small token given the magnitude of the challenges facing our Japanese friends in dealing with their recent tragedies. Nonetheless, the Digital Cinema Society is proud to report that with the help of our members including 1/2 of each annual membership renewal that came in between March 21st and April 15th we are able to make a donation of $355.00 toward the relief effort.
We are also happy to announce that a new corporate entity has stepped up and offered to match this contribution for a total donation of $710.00 to the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief Fund administered by the American Red Cross. Although the company is new, some of the Principals are longtime and well known DCS members including Marker Karahadian, (formerly with Plus8 and Panavision), and John Coghill, (formerly with DALSA). The venture is called cineFLOW, and offers data and workflow solutions with a specialty is flash field recording, data management, on-location dailies color correction, with an archive systems. Check out an interview with Marker as part of our streaming coverage of NAB 2011.
