The Camcorder Shopping Crisis

It is harder to pick out the right Camcorder than ever before. In the last couple years, the options have exploded. Now there are all kinds of media capture formats to consider. In addition to the good old digital videotape format, we now have camcorders that record video to solid state flash drives, to tiny spinning hard drives, to optical media like DVD. Confusing. Even worse, they all work well.

The Digital Television Revolution and the Need For Video Processing Technologies

With the emergence of HDTV, there is often a mismatch between the signal received and the aspect ratio and native resolution of a display. A display's aspect ratio is essentially the shape of the screen. Two common aspect ratios are 4:3 (universal for standard definition) and 16:9 (universal for high definition). Depending on the display, the 16:9 signal might have to be displayed on a television with a 4:3 aspect ratio, and vice versa. This can lead to image loss, particularly on the sides, and requires aspect ratio conversion for a complete picture.

Web Services for the Digital Home

The role of Web Services in the digital home is guaranteeing interoperability among devices, services and systems involved. Web Services generally provide communication and coordination infrastructure to digital home systems which may have minimal computational ability for interoperation. Interoperability in the digital home is achieved between components and services offered when they are capable of transparently collaborating on a particular service that they provide to the home user. Interoperability is the central cohesive source of support in digital home systems.
