Is 3-D Television in Your Future?

All though 3-D television is an emerging technology, it will be main stream sooner than we expect, as 3-D cameras are improved and all television sets will be capable of reproducing 3-D accurately.  Obviously, 3-D televisions are expensive now, but like allnew technology, the prices will become reasonable as more viewers step up to enjoy the wonders of the world around us.  I look forward to the advancements, which will put forward great images without the glasses. The first 3-D movie was produced by Arch Oboler, of the famed radio series, "Lights Out."   It was called Bwana Devil and stared Robert Stack.  My first experience with 3-D was in 1953 with the horror movie, House of Wax, which was the first movie with stereophonic sound,staring Vincent Price, who became the King of 3-D by staring in three more 3-D films.

The Brief Lifespan Of DAT

DAT was widely used in the professional audio recording industry in the 1990's, and is still used to some extent. Particularly with regard to archives created in the '90, although most labels have a program in place to transfer these tapes to a hard disk-based database. DAT  is used professionally due to its lossless encoding, which allows a master tape to be created that is secure and does not induce tape noise (hiss) into the recording.

The Lutron Energi TriPak

The Energi TriPak solution is ideal for small commercial spaces such as conference rooms, private offices, training rooms, open office space, and any other area that benefits from reduced energy consumption. In many of these spaces, lighting is on at full brightness even when the space is unoccupied or when there is abundant daylight. Energi TriPak products can reduce the electricity consumption during these times, and can also help occupants to be more productive by allowing them to set their own optimal lighting.

The Real World Value of the Virtual World

If it looks like a duck...walks like a duck...quacks like a duck do you think that maybe... Lots of folks are saying the valuations of today's virtual businesses are real, not like the last bunch that went up in glory and down in flames.  Others aren't so sure.  Most of us find it interesting but don't have any skin in the game. Take a look at the analysis, the comparisons and judge for yourself.  Whatever your conclusion we know one thing we're in for a helluva ride. just don't wake up with a tattoo and a monkey.

Virtual World Calls for Virtual Money

Money - or lack of it - causes the most stress for individuals and family problems. But since we're now dealing in a near virtual world let's simply go to mobile device money and do away with the billfold that's either half full or half empty. Ironically, people in third-world countries have been faster to convert to mobile money than those in industrial countries. The challenges? Infrastructure and security. Someone always wants to spoil the party but the transition is underway.

Did I Turn off the Lights?

Save energy by controlling your home's temperature while traveling.  Check the video feed from your security cameras.  Turn off the security system for a neighbor to enter and feed the cat without giving out a security code.  Turn the lights on and off in different rooms to make potential burglars think that someone is home, or activate the TV at night like you would if you were home.

Digital Signage Dayparting Takes Content Relevance to a New Level

Dayparting optimizes the relevance of your messages because it enables you to schedule various presentations to play automatically at different times of the day and specific days of the week.   Organizations that leverage both digital signage and dayparting experience added convenience, increased freedom to focus on their business, and a greater impact on the viewer.

Hey! I'm a Radio Station

The medical field took us humans apart and analyzed our DNA, thereby placing us in a family, which could be related by matching the elements of our DNA.  Just like the medical field took apart our DNA, the Music Gnome Project took apart the basics of music, such as melody, harmony, rhythm, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics and vocal harmony.  Each part of our DNA makes us who we are, and can compare our DNA association to others in our family.  The Gnome Project makes the same association between families of similar songs.
