COLUMBUS, IN – Digital Metrology Solutions, provider of measurement software, consulting and training, announced the kickoff of its “Notepad Series” videos. These short, informal sessions make surface texture understandable for those who rely on the information but are not necessarily experts in the field. Each video addresses common topics related to surface specification, measurement and interpretation, in five minutes or less.

“This new video series is designed to introduce casual users to surface analysis,” said Mark Malburg, President of Digital Metrology. “Many technicians, researchers and engineers rely on surface data but only have a passing knowledge of how to explore and understand a surface. Slides, equations and theory can sometimes get in the way. Each of these videos presents a single topic in just a few minutes. We take a concept down to the level of a simple drawing in real time, which provides an incredibly effective path to understanding.”

The Notepad Series departs from much of the web-based content that companies are currently producing. “Slideshow-based webinars and product demos tend to put the emphasis on capturing contact information rather than truly educating viewers,” said Malburg. “The Notepad Series flips this model upside down. The sessions are brief, informal, and free, and there is no commitment or registration required for viewing.”

Malburg added that the videos serve as a catalyst for further training. “These videos elevate the basic knowledge level and make dedicated training/consulting more accessible and more effective.”

The first Notepad Series videos are available at New videos will follow every few weeks.
