Startups…Being There at the Beginning

"Get in on the ground floor, put in a rough year or two and retire a millionaire."

"We're open to new and innovative compensation options."

"Play a key role in tomorrow's Amazon…FaceBook…oh heck, Apple!!"

Streaming Content - Why and How?

Supposedly now --- life is better. I should be able to stream content including TV, movies, news, music and everything else --- from the internet directly to my entertainment system. I should also be able to do all the old stuff too including listen and watch the movies and music which I purchased and stored on my hard drive. So, since I are an engineer, I'm going to break everything down into point form and see if I can make sense of all of these options --- oh and by the way --- I know you can do all this internet stuff with a phone too but I'm not even going to go there at this point in time :-(

Surround Sound Technology Training

As far back as 1940, with Walt Disney's production of "Fantasia", surround sound has been a concept that nearly everyone finds exciting. Consumer electronics tried to take advantage of surround for music in the early 1970s with various forms of quadraphonic sound. It never really became a mainstream success, however, due to limited recorded software and much more expensive phono cartridges or tape decks needed to play it back.

Trade Show PR Mining…It's Time for Someone Else to Do the Labor

Conventions/conferences are events that challenge a man's (and woman's) stamina. 

They push you to the limits of creativity and performance.

Companies spend hundreds of thousands, no millions to attend them annually just to reach, educate, inform, persuade other companies and the media.

Two recent events are typical - Black Hat Technical Security Conference and NAB (National Association of Broadcasters).  

Both in Las Vegas.

Both at the same time.

Why do I need a check up on my system

As an ISF calibrator for many years I find myself in a lot of homes to make their systems perform better. I am constantly amazed at how many systems have everything they need to watch HD video and listen to HD audio but have never seen or heard either. I find that about 5 out of 10 consumers fall into this category. Why is this happening you ask? 

Why Doesn't the Press Call, email, Text, Tweet?

PR/publicity folks are just like every trend follower..always ready to jump to the next "new/hot" thing.  In their case to prove they are like way in front of the communications curve. Blogging? Fading. Facebook Like page (Fan page is out), Tweety? Oh yeah!

Writing clean/concise/meaty releases, checking the Press Web Site? That is so yesterday!!!

So what if the site is where media folks go to find/get news/data and where they go to get contact info?

Just because the lowly company press room is pivotal for everyone, everywhere why should the person leading the charge stoop to make certain the company's press site had just the right information and that the information is easily available, fresh. We wrapped our many years of experience and feedback from media people into the attached article.

3DTV Sales Forecast To Triple In 2011

Consumer-electronics manufacturers are on track to sell 4.2 million 3DTV sets worldwide in 2010, with the market projected to triple to 12.9 million units next year, according to research firm iSuppli. By 2012, 27.4 million 3DTVs will ship worldwide and by 2015 shipments will reach 78.1 million units, representing a compound annual growth rate of 80.2% between 2010 and 2015, iSuppli projected. Three issues need to be resolved before there is "mass consumer acceptance" of 3DTVs, iSuppli analyst Riddhi Patel said: standardized video formats, content available and 3D glasses interoperability.
