Downloads – Managers Walk Through Series

Report Form – Manager’s Walk Through: Dynamic, Online and probably OK. It matches the current DCPs, but those and this are in the process of being streamlined – 3 new versions that will separate out the audio and the picture tests, and make the combo playlist more clear and linear.

Why? This version is OK for someone who is comfortable looking and hearing simultaneously, but a bit demanding for the someone on the training end of the curve. Let us know how else it might be improved.

Sample Screengrab Mangers Walk Through Checklist


Faces1 Test: 2K – The Faces series works with the human visual system’s innate ability to notice color problems in faces even though it can be tricked by everything else.  The non-technical staff can use it to report changes in color and contrast to the Tech Staff with the coordinated Manager’s Walk Through Checklist.

The DCP also includes sounds that travel around the room, bells and pizzicato strings, that help judge sound issues.

xkcd1080 – 2K: xkcd did a wonderful piece on the human visual system in one black and white cartoon. This DCP stretches it out and adds a few other bits to educate non-technical staff while entertaining. It includes sound tests as well, all which correlate to the Managers Walk Through Checklist.
