Taking Care of Business

As a small business owner, managing an infinite to-do list isn’t something new.

You are a chameleon of change and “going with the flow.” You make juggling different job functions on any given day look easy.

You check emails on your lunch break and at stoplights (we won’t tell). You are a master at multitasking and making sure everything on the schedule is updated and running smoothly…(more)

4D coming to a Screen near You

South Korean CJ Group is planning to equip about 200 U.S. movie theaters with equipment that will bring movies into the 4th dimension. Such equipment comprise moving seats, giant fans that simulate wind, strobe lights for lightning and explosions and tiny nozzles that can spray water, mist, bubbles, scents and odors.

CJ Groups 4DPlex already screens about 20 movies per year in international locations. Costing about $2m to equip a 240-seat theater (half of which is funded by the theater owner) means selling 250,000 tickets at an $8 premium to recover the investment for both parties. Director of Cinepolis in Mexico said that their 4DPlex theaters do two to three times the business of conventional theaters.

If the plans come to fruition, it must spell trouble for D-Box Technologies, who have around 100 locations that offer moving seats. With home theaters and media rooms becoming more popular, will this be enough to entice former movie goers back to the big screen?

Ubuntu TV Launches Weekly Update

As a cord cutter myself, I’ve been eagerly awaiting something come to fruition from Canonical’s Ubuntu TV. Previous inquiries have been greeted with a stock response:

“community has been incredible. We are still at a very early stage of development, but it certainly seems to have attracted huge interest which we are only now fully getting on top of.

Right now, we’re focusing on working with hardware and content partners to bring Ubuntu TV to your living room.

If you are interested in updates, the easiest thing to do is join the Ubuntu TV group on Facebook.”

It looks like the wait may be almost over. A new website http://www.doadjustyourset.com/ is now the source of the Ubuntu TV Project Weekly Update. The first week’s post has just gone up. I still don’t think it’ll happen tomorrow, as one of the posts on this week’s update is asking for recommendations on scopes. From the screenshots (or mockups) on the main Ubuntu TV web site it looks like it’s going to be a great product.

With Microsoft looking like they’re abandoning Windows Media Center (a mistake in my opinion), the timing could be just right. Of course the fact that it runs on UNIX is going to make it a non-starter for most (unless they can match Apple’s success with OS X).

StrandVision Surpasses Five Billion Digital Signage Content Pages

StrandVision Digital Signage today announced that it has served more than 5,000,000,000 pages of digital signage content to its customers. The milestone, which was reached on July 5 at 8:33:42 a.m. central time, is the result of an ever-increasing customer base, multiple digital signage feeds across customer sites around the world and an accelerating number of pages and information that its customers are streaming to their respective customers, visitors and employees over their digital signage networks. The signage messages are being displayed via physical digital signage players and displays, employee browser home pages and virtual screens on internal and external Web sites.

“StrandVision Digital Signage continues to grow in importance as a business marketing communications tool for our customers,” commented Mike Strand StrandVision founder and CEO. “Our flexible, cloud-based subscription service allows our customers to create customized digital signage networks that range from a single screen to multi-facility corporate-wide and even international deployments of hundreds of digital signage players. We find that our customers often start with basic systems and then dramatically expand them as they realize the potential. The success is evident in the numbers.”

CEA Issues Specs For 3DTV Closed Captioning, Glasses

The Consumer Electronics Association announced the publication of a standard for 3DTVs to render closed-captioning services and another for synchronizing active-shutter 3D glasses via an infrared signal.

The first spec, CEA-708.1, "Digital Television (DTV) Closed Captioning: 3D Extensions," specifies signaling to allow closed captioning to be rendered with stereoscopic 3D program content. The standard allows for a standardized method to set a value for the perceptual depth for closed-captioning text, or a series of values that change over time.

The other -- CEA-2038, "Command-Driven Analog IR-Synchronized Active Eyewear" -- defines a way for controlling "active" 3D glasses worn by viewers using an infrared signal sent by a TV set.
