Recording in 4K - Issues and Workflows

Recording in 4K - Issues and Workflows | 4K Ultra HD is HOT | Scoop.it

 

4K recording is an interesting issue as there is currently relatively little in agreed upon format standards for delivery,” said Mitch Gross, Director of Communications, Convergent Design.

 

“There are some cameras and there are some displays, and then there's a whole lot of open space in between them.

 

We believe that for 4K to become increasingly adopted this space must be filled with all sorts of hardware and software solutions.”

Samsung UHD TV: Classic art meets timeless technology

Samsung UHD TV: Classic art meets timeless technology | 4K Ultra HD is HOT | Scoop.it

 

Having been used to tech events being held at the newest restaurants and bars in Manila, I had to double check the invitation from Samsung.

 

Because of all the places to launch their newest line of Smart TVs, the Metropolitan Museum seemed the most unlikely one of all.

 

Sharing centerstage with some of the best art pieces in the country, Samsung’s 2013 TV line up occupied several halls of the Metropolitan Museum for its Timeless Reflection: An Exhibit of Life that showcased the brand’s promise of bringing together art and technology.

Over 80 European Organizations Demand Protection for Net Neutrality | CircleID.com

 

Today, more than 80 organizations, represented by The European Consumer Organization (BEUC) and European Digital Rights (EDRi), sent a letter [PDF] to the European Commission demanding the end of dangerous experimentation with the functioning of the Internet in Europe and the protection of the principles of openness and neutrality.

 

"The Internet's unique value is openness. The experimentation by certain European access providers with blocking, filtering and throttling of services creates borders in an online world whose key value is the absence of borders." explains Joe McNamee, Executive Director of EDRi. "This reckless experimentation will continue unless the European Commission puts a stop to it."
