High Definition & Digital Cinema Ltd.
  supported by  Creative Skillset  and endorsed by the  BKSTS
present a new training course
The Digital Imaging Technician (DIT) is a fast-evolving on-set role with ever increasing responsibilities. In the film world this function would have been carried out by the Clapper Loader, but in Digital Cinema the role has expanded immensely. DITs need to know about image capture, quantization, digital theory, camera chip formats, prism, Bayer patterning on image chips, the meaning of RAW, colour separation, true resolution, gamma and log processing, compression schemes and pitfalls, recording systems, file formats, storage operating systems, workflows, metadata and logistics.

The course is aimed at existing professional camera crew, as well as post-production personnel such as data wranglers, who need digital imaging and data management skills to increase their employment prospects. Theoretical training will be given, followed by practical hands-on experience with several commonly-used products from supporting organisations.
We hope to repeat this workshop!
