Until 2010, the author held the post as director of technology at Unique Cinema Systems (UCS), the company responsible for the roll-out of D-cinema in Norway--the first country in the world to transfer its entire cinema exhibition industry to digital. Prior to his engagement with UCS, he co-founded Norsk kinokonsult, a company specialising in cinema design. Other past positions include technical manager at the Norwegian Film Institute in Oslo and principal cinema engineer for the digital sound format SDDS in Europe.

"This handsomely designed manual--which, by the way, is decidedly not a training manual for projectionists: you need to be a projectionist before you can become an advanced projectionist--will prove indispensable for any organisation presenting old film and, indeed, anything other than the latest release, such is the fluidity of cinema technology."--David Walsh "Journal of Film Preservation "
