Bridging the Technology Gap
Bridging the Technology Gap
Remote collaboration is easier than ever before. From desktops and mobile devices, employees hold ad hoc audio and video conference calls, present and share content, send instant messages, schedule meetings, and more. They use cloud-based applications and unified communications platforms to conduct their communication activities. These kinds of tools are intuitive and familiar to users; they consistently have high adoption rates within the business environment because they are so easy to use. But when employees move to a traditional audiovisual group collaboration venue, they are frequently disappointed and frustrated. Whether it's an executive boardroom, a training facility, or a small auditorium, these rooms often lack access to the popular UC platforms and cloud-based content delivery solutions that employees want to use. Instead, users find collaboration solutions that are not familiar or intuitive. Due to the complexity of these systems, the technology often goes unused. Read More

In today's always on, always available world the toughest job for a company is developing, maintaining, protecting its reputation. Business partners, customers who don't get the information/assistance they need can go around one/two people until the issue is handled. If people can't or won't accept the company's philosopphy and goals as theirs, believe that question/issue isn't their problem too should think about a new career path because they're doing the company and themselves a disservice.

Drones Filmmaking
Drones Filmmaking
Economic, reasonably easy to fly drones combined with light, rugged 4K cameras are making it possible for studios and independent filmmakers to capture/produce films and videos that were financially out of the reach of most people. But budget also needs to include time to learn how to do it right and what is required to avoid disasters and legal action. As with any film project it only works when it's done right. Read More

Content Insider #402 - 4K Play
4K entertainment is real. Media people want to deliver it and consumers really want it, can understand it despite what various segment players say. But no segment can do it alone...it's an ecosystem. If the few don't want to do anything but promote excuses they can and will be left behind. There's just too many ways to capture it, produce it, ship it, view it, store it. It's time to meet the consumers' demands or wonder what in the **** happened! Read More

Blackmagic Cameras and Michelle Pizanis
Blackmagic Cameras and Michelle Pizanis
Two of the year's biggest films are "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Furious 7." Both movies had some of the most amazing action footage ever shot. They both contain action and stunt scenes beyond what seems possible to shoot live. And they both had Michelle Pizanis working on them. While shooting a number of scenes in Sydney, Australia, Michelle and John used Blackmagic Cinema Cameras EF for some of the film's key scenes, including an exciting escape scene and a large, climatic action sequence involving exploding trucks and cinematic mayhem. The scenes were shot in RAW, which allowed the team to capture as much detail as possible within each shot, givin Read More

Xsens MVN Wearable Motion-Capture Systems
Xsens MVN Wearable Motion-Capture Systems
A few years ago, I saw a projection show by Skrillex that featured motion capture. It was XSENS mocap, specifically an MVN Suit that allowed him to move and perform characters that became part of his stage presentation. The MVN is a full body suit that includes several small trackers in the suit that allows your actor to move quickly/easily. The Awinda system gives you the ability to record wirelessly too. The data then goes right to Maya. (Max/Houdini/C4D too). Xsens is used for all kinds of capture, from scientific to gaming. It's also been used for feature films, including the first Ted and now Ted 2. Read More

Content Insider #401 - Mean What You Say
Talking about innovation is fun. Not real sure why it's so tough to do. Of course the fact that you have to do something totally different than what you did yesterday might have something to do with it because it isn't an easy path to follow. More importantly not everyone on your team has the same understanding as to what innovation means. It's important for your organization and you to take the chances and make it happen. Standing still isn't an option. Today or tomorrow! Read More
