Sage advice and commentary from Mark Bain
Ah…..finally a new firmware release directed towards the IT department.
Because the MasonIP player connects directly up to your corporate network structure, we have added more technical control over accessing your data servers. Server Domains are now supported, along with complete manual entry of server mount commands. This allows you to setup your MasonIP to access any server on your network, regardless of how it is configured. (more…)
Man, it’s been a long time coming. For those of us that have followed the NTSC to ATSC changeover here in the US, it’s been years. Rewind your history tapes people and look back at 1996. Yes, that’s right…..1996 !! That is when the FCC approved and adopted the ATSC format for broadcast TV and told everyone that the transition would begin immediately and be completed by 2006. (more…)
Ok, so we are about to arrive at another DTV switchover date. That being June 12, 2009. As you recall, the last date was delayed by Congress because they determined some people were not prepared to have the analog broadcast signals turned off. Well, here we are at the latest transition date and are those people now ready? Of course not.
The latest survey shows that 3.3 million people are still relying on analog TV broadcasts. (more…)
As I type this, Congress is getting ready to pass a bill that would delay the television broadcast transition from analog to digital. They say a large number of people do not have digital TV receivers or set top boxes, so moving to complete digital broadcasts would leave those people without any watchable TV signals. I say, don’t delay. The move to digital broadcasts has already been delayed for years now. The transition was supposed to have happened years ago, but it was delayed again and again. I say, no more delays.
Everyone at Wired is wishing all of you the very best this holiday season. And remember, this coming February 18, 2009, all TV broadcasts will be Digital Only. Your old analog tv set will no longer be able to pick up regular broadcast stations. So if you have not made the transition to a new Digital TV set, you might want to pick up a new TV set at a xmas sale. For more information, make sure you go to http://www.dtv2009.gov.
The Olympic games are over and I really enjoyed watching the HD OTA (Over The Air) broadcast from NBC. I chose to watch the games OTA instead of over Cable because I do not want to watch low bitrate Cable HDTV. My local TV station broadcasts a fairly high datarate HD signal for NBC and it was very enjoyable to watch FREE HD with only an inexpensive rooftop antenna.
Everyone is hopping on the ‘Green’ train. Business, Schools, People, all want to be ‘Green’. Well, actually that’s wrong. They want to Say they are Green, but do they have the will and desire to actually pay for it? I think not…. (more…)
The MasonIP Video Player is the best thing since sliced bread. Really. But it’s pretty difficult to describe all it’s features and functions because it fits into really distinct categories. So to better explain the MasonIP, I will break out the features and applications by popular markets. First up, DVD Authoring. If you author or create DVD’s, read on below:
