Projection network Scan tool, cinema-nmap-scripts

These tools are aimed at service engineers or larger entities with Network Operation Centers that need to manage the specialised equipment on your projection network. From Projectors and players to Automation and sound, it’s all becoming IT infrastructure on your projection network.

This tool can make it easy to track and identify this equipment and specifically track what the equipment is and the serial and firmware version they are running.

This is based on an open source project and can be found at the GitHub repository

Much more information on how this software can be utilised can be found at the GitHub repo in the README file.

Projection Playback Auditing Tool

This was added to the primary tool cinema-catcher-app. The aim of this tool is:

  1. Debug any difficult-to-find faults in Playback.
  2. Send Auditing of content back to Cinema Advertisers.
  3. Detect any unusual playback activity. (i.e. Playback of content outside of hours, pause and rewinds etc.)

It can do a lot so best to do a video on how it works.
