Wiring Long Hdmi Runs

(category: Audio-Video-Streaming, Word count: 471)

HDMI is currently the best choice for Audio and Video connections. Because it transfers both audio and video on one cable, in an uncompressed format, it's perfect for high definition displays and setups. HDMI is also compatible with the latest digital transmission standards like HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection).

HDMI has one main drawback. Unfortunately it is not designed for long cable runs. The higher the resolution and the longer the cable, the more the signal has a chance of become degraded. This is because the cables are manufactured using twisted copper pairs of very small-gauge wire. Unlike normal coaxial cable, this makes interference and degradation a reality whenever dealing with lengths over 50 feet.

Fortunately, the wise creators of the HDMI standard thought long and hard about their specification. Because they choose to include a line for power within the cable, it has become possible to power repeaters that are internal to the cable. Normally, signal boosters and repeaters need an external power source to boost the signal, but because of it's design, HDMI can actually be extended without an external power source.

These types of HDMI repeaters come in several varieties. There are cables with repeaters built in, as well as plug in repeaters that will connect two HDMI cables together while actively repeating the signal. A converter can also be used to change the HDMI signal into a signal that will travel over standard Cat5 cable. With this type of system, a unit is placed at either end of the cable run to transform the signal to go over cat5, and then transform it back to HDMI on the other end.

If extra care is needed for your signal, external power can also be used for your HDMI repeater. This is a good idea because many HDMI sources simply don't output the power needed to do a good job of repeating the signal. Even cables with built-in repeaters often allow for an external power supply to be attached. This is just a little extra protection for your signal and may be a good idea depending on the situation in which the repeater is needed.

Since HDMI is a digital signal, it cannot be degraded much before the picture and audio is not longer decipherable. On analog signals, you can get quite a bit of degradation before the picture is totally gone. On digital signals, corrupt is corrupt, you will start to see major artifacts with only a little bit of signal degradation.

This is why it's important to use a proper repeater for all your long cable runs. Do your research and find out which extender option is best for you: built-in, standalone repeater, or cat5 HDMI extender. No matter what the situation is, there is probably a solution that will work for you.

Morphology The New Technology Jargon

(category: Audio-Video-Streaming, Word count: 366)

I chanced upon this book titled "The Morphology of Modern Linguistics" at the recently concluded 2006 World Book Fair in Singapore. Intrigued, I browsed Wikipedia, my favorite people's encyclopedia, for "morphology" which is featured under linguistics, mathematics and even biology.

What about technology, especially in the current midst of trend changes, and especially in the case of information technology?

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is one obvious platform that experiences the technological morphology. No longer must VoIP users be confined to their own voices while talking to families, discussing business matters or conducting long-distance interviews. Voice changers could conveniently morph natural voices across many ranges, like age, gender, or both.

Another information front that epitomizes this new morphology concept is the personal absorption of multimedia clips. Forget the debate over Blu-ray DVD or HD-DVD; this is about the listeners and viewers being empowered to edit audio and video quality at will. More technically said, DVD morpher software offers an ability to morph music and movies, adding special audio and video effects to the tracks or removing unwanted scenes from favorite videos.

In addition to all the above, the latest I have heard of is that you could as well change your webcam image, without even a need for a webcam while live chatting. People are now able to add animated texts and pictures to the webcam image, or fake it with another face accompanied by real gestures and expressions, which is made possible by something that might be called webcam morpher.

The way computers are applied to the world has, since the vast construction of undersea fibre optic cables and the constant development of complementary software products, been transformed into more than just a routine work-study template, but an experience of networking and entertainment.

And, right in the heart of that phenomenal marvel lies the morphology of technology, which connotes the manipulation and modification of end-results by computer tasks.

How To Build A Funny Videos Website

(category: Audio-Video-Streaming, Word count: 609)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Early on, there were only comic books and video tapes that people brooded over to have a good laugh, but today there are so many websites available for the same. These websites are filled with funny crazy pictures, funny video clips and allow the user to surf through and watch any video they wish to. They can either watch the top rated ones or specify a search keyword and look for that one particular video. However, building a funny video website is not as easy as it seems. If an individual wants to create a website, they need to go through a rigorous process. And so, you can imagine the amount of details involved for a company to launch a website. Their main content would be based on humor and interactive flash games only.

Once a company decided to get into the funny video website category, they will need to assess the other websites already existing in the market and what they can offer that isn't already there. As they discuss these issues with their team, they will also have to touch base with a good web hosting company to figure out if they can use their domain for the upcoming website. A funny videos website consumes a lot of bandwidth, so a dedicated server is usually required for hosting. The one thing to keep in mind is that every step of the way takes a lot of effort, so one must have a clear cut budget before delving into this pool.

A website needs bright appealing colors, simple easy to use layout and most importantly content that will catch the eye of the person browsing through the site. If they find it interesting, they will stop and spend couple of more minutes, else will move on to other websites. A good PHP or ASP programmer can do the customized coding and put in all the necessary links, but it is difficult to find someone who will understand your needs and create a site that satisfies your dreams. The funny images and videos that you put in your site should be unique and be humorous. Some also have the html code for the video to be embedded in other websites, like MySpace or Blogs. This will help your site stand out among the crowd and get people to notice it. Finding interested people to contribute to the funny crazy pictures, flash animation videos will take time for a start up venture.

Will there be categories to sort the videos into? For example, if a person wants to upload videos about his dogs, will your sites have a category labeled "Dog Videos"? This will come in handy when a new visitor is looking for funny videos related to dogs. This makes it easier for them to navigate through your site and find what interests them, making them stick around longer to browse the other features on your site.

Some of the crazy pictures and funny video clips on other sites have the option for the viewer to rate the video, and post a comment. These are added features that allow the user to feel important making them come back to the site. The company should therefore think through their plan and get their facts together before putting their site out to the public. And if it is not interesting, or the pictures aren't funny enough, you will have lost a prospective member. It is therefore advisable for the company to spend time in doing their research to try and come up with an idea to outdo the other funny video websites.

Bose as a company is about 48 years old. The company was established in 1964 in the United States and in particular in Based in Framingham, Massachusetts.

Space Videos

You can take the next shuttle to the moon or planet Mars on NASA's dime. Would you jump for joy and suit-up, or would you cringe at the very thought of leaving this planet's atmosphere? I'm on the fence with this one. A part of me wants to see and experience outer space so badly, but another part of me is frightened. It's difficult to not associate death with outer space. After all, we've seen what can happen to those billion dollar space shuttles. I think for a lot of us, it's best to stick with a planetarium, current space video or DVD. This way we can get a glimpse of what our universe has to offer, but without any danger involved.

Millions of us watched as a civilian, school teacher, climbed into a shuttle headed for outer space. This was back in the 1980s, so I was in elementary school at the time. My teacher happily flipped on the television so that our entire class could view in amazement. Unfortunately our amazement was not related to viewing a successful take-off. Some aspect of the space shuttle was faulty and all went wrong. Lives were ended and hopes were shattered. It was undoubtingly a dismal day for NASA. However, there have also been plenty of successful journeys into outer space as well. You can catch the highlights on a contemporary space video or DVD at home. Teach your children what the folks at NASA have accomplished over the years.

Clearly there is more to becoming involved with NASA than watching a space video or two and feeling passionate about astronomy. If you're really into the stars and moons, I suggest you pursue a college degree in Astronomy or physics. Even better yet, most individuals with a passion for outer space will go the extra mile and acquire a PhD. This way you can become a professor, who teaches the wonders of astronomy, or possibly even acquire a position at NASA. That would be amazing! Imagine telling people you know that you work for NASA. Who can vie with that?

How To Effectively Market With Video On The Web

(category: Audio-Video-Streaming, Word count: 703)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

Online video publishing has indeed taken the Internet by storm in recent years, making the use of video for marketing, promotion, news and PR online a true key strategic component and a key business differentiator for internet marketers who want to communicate effectively about their product profile and benefits within the shortest possible of time.

Internet is full of information and the average attention span of a web user today is measured in seconds. When web users search for their information at a search engine, they will get thousands of search results; when they visit your website, they may only spend a few seconds and little efforts to scan through what you are selling or proposing and decide whether your content, style, look and approach are a good fit for what they were actually looking for. These first few seconds are crucial and if you can delivery clear and targeted message by offering a fast, highly visual way to get their further attention and engage their interest, you have done bingo.

Does this mean that you just need to simply put up 10-min video tutorial on your website or just slamming some video contents up on your web pages, you will instantly sell more products or services? If this is your way of marketing with video on the web and hoping to get high conversion rate of traffic-to-sales, you will more toward getting disappointments than good news.

In order to make your video to effectively market your products/services online and convey your product/service key traits and characteristics within a very short amount of time in a unique, memorable way. These are a few rules of thumb to follow:

1. Get Your Video Seen

If you want your video to be your effective marketing tool, it must be able to see by as many web users as possible. Hence, don't just keep and tight your video inside your web site borders. Let your video content be free and distributed to the majors video sharing websites such as YouTube and Google video so that not only others can watch and talk about it, but they can easily download it, redistribute it, if not even publish it directly on their own sites.

2. Small File & Load Fast

Statistics show that average web users spend their time waiting for a page to load is about 7 seconds. Web pages that take longer than 7 seconds to load, their visitors normally are on the verge of clicking away and visit other website. Hence, you need to make sure your video file is small enough, ideally less than 1 megabyte and load almost in real time to keep the interest your visitors. AVI is the most common video format, the file size can easily exist 10 megabytes for a short 2-3 minutes video; hence if you share your video in this format, you most probably will get "click away" from you visitors because of long loading time of your video file. Hence, you must get a video format conversion tool to convert your video to a more internet friendly format such as SWF format.

3. Let Them Know It's A Video, A Short Video

If the web users do not know that it is a video, they won't click it and play it; hence your video will get watch. So, you must let the web users know that the "box" is a video; the best way is to make it look like a video / VCR-like by having a play and stop button where the web users can click to play the video and stop it whenever they want to stop it.

Let the web users know also this is a short video. No one wants to sit through a 30 minute presentation on the history of your company; be focused on your products/services and deliver your messages preferable within 2 minutes.

In Summary

Effectively market with video on the web is not just slamming some video content up on your web pages, it more toward effective video communication through video publishing & sharing on the web.

How To Put Video On Your Website Video File Types

(category: Audio-Video-Streaming, Word count: 352)
Share this article on: Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp

If you want to put video on your website you must have a good knowledge of the basic video file types. What video file type to use? what are the pros and cons of each file type? These are just some of the questions you should ask yourself before proceeding with video implementation on your webpages.

There are three basic video file types on the internet. Mpeg, AVI and Quicktime. I believe the Quicktime file type is the most popular since a lot of huge entertainment and news sites use it exclusively on their web pages.

AVI is the oldest of the three main file types. It is a windows oriented video format but it's not the most popular because of the sound and video compatibility and synchronizing problems. Because the Quicktime format can be used on either a windows or a macintosh computer, the AVI video file type loses it's popularity every day.

The mpeg format is a popular video file type that uses it's high output quality to increase it's popularity over the Quicktime format. Mpeg is used on video games, cd-roms and other media that require high output quality. One disadvantage of mpeg is that it sacrifices file size to gain in digital quality. The mpeg video files are usually large.

Another disadvantage of the mpeg format is that you really need time and sophisticated hardware and software to convert plain video into mpeg. And let's not forget that the mpeg format is not supported by apple and macintosh meaning that if you put mpeg video on your website, those users with macintosh will not be able to see it.

Quicktime is by far the most popular video file type developed by apple for macintosh users, but is also compatible with the IBM-compatible machines and the windows operating systems. The hardware and software you need to digitize video into the Quicktime format is very inexpensive, compared to the mpeg format. So its much easier and cheaper to create video and put it on your website using the Quicktime format.
