Summer is on the way so it's time to start thinking about taking your entertainment outside. Outdoor speakers are a special case and of course can cause special problems when it comes to weathering the storm. They not only need to sound good up close, but they also need to project that sound into a void.
In this chapter we talk about some things to look into and perhaps install while you under construction --- just in case you need it in the future. It's easy to pull extra wire while you are at it.
Whatever systems or wires you choose, these general rules and procedures will make the job easier.
Starting with Dolby Surround, which used four channels (front left, front right, phantom center, mono surround - though usually using two speakers), the public began to expect the increased realism brought about by sound location cues being able to move across the front soundstage, and from front to rear for ambience or special effects.
As Plasma and LCD TV's continue the downward trend in pricing they are becoming ever so more available to consumers who 2 or 3 years ago could not afford them. With the increase in flat panel TV's sales comes the old age dilemma of where to place the TV once you have got it home.
Selling is hard work, even in the virtual world of the Internet. It requires strong motivation, personal pride, perseverance, flexibility, energy, discipline, and focus. Above all, it requires communicating and being able to read/understand the prospects' attitudes and needsâ€¦real or perceived.
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.
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.
WirelessHD products have been available since last year but I believe we're about to see it go even more mainstream with the onset of products coming on the market at under $2000 for a high-end LCD TV.
Small retailers have taken advantage of the affordable stand-alone digital signage solutions that can be programmed and updated with a USB stick or a removable flash memory card. With these solutions, entertaining sales messages can be created, modified and updated in just minutes using simplified software provided with the system. In multi-location, multi-sign operations, managers are using standard network wiring and the Internet cloud to upload fresh, attention-getting sales messages and to manage the timing and placement of product multimedia messages.
The 'connected home' is really starting to become a reality. With more and more devices that link to the home network arriving in stores the prices are plummeting. Broadband is cheaper and service providers are under pressure to find new ways to exploit their mobile and fixed broadband networks. In addition, concern for carbon emissions and new smart grid strategies are driving the deployment of still more networked devices. There are challenges though.
CES is like Cherry Blossom time in Japan or on the Potomac. Or Mel Brooks' Springtime for Hitler! Just a great way to start fresh and see if the industry can get it rightâ€¦this time. Before Shapiro could open the festivities, Google's Schmidt decided he'd pull a Steve and take the wind out of Shapiro's CES sails with his Nexus One unveiling.

Our kids do nearly everything on their smartphones or netbooks. Because we're slightly retarded, they use email for us. For everyone else -- friends, schoolmates, relationships -- they max out all of the capabilities, features and benefits of today's Web 2.0 social media. They simply look at us and repeat Graves's words, "I have to live my dreams." They aren't alone! "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." - Raul, Die Another Day (MGM - 2002)
The words innovation, efficiency and multitasking may not have been invented in Silicon Valley and the other technology enclaves, but they were refined, honed, perfected in these areas. When the economy stagnated, financial analysts and economists were quick to say the PC/CE/communications industry centers of hyperactivity had lost their edge. In the U.S., they were simply no longer capable of changing the way we live/work. They couldn't be counted on to and move the economy forward. In fact, other countries were becoming the technology hotspots, generating the ideas and the products.
