Digital projectionist


Digital projection technicians are responsible for projecting films in cinema screens equipped with digital systems such as DLP, LCD or others. The difference between this role and that of a traditional projection technician lies in the tools they use (they use digital technology), although the aim is the same: to operate the projectors and sound and light equipment in a cinema screen and ensure that all of a film's effects run in-sync. This role requires excellent technical skills and a solid knowledge of audiovisual technology.
