Cinema Haven The video social network

Cinema Haven was created in 2009 to give users an option other than youtube and it’s time limits. Since then Cinema Haven evolved into first a video host, then a video indexer and most recently it sprouted it’s final beta stage where it now allows you to share videos from over 35 sources.

Some would ask why this is a big deal when there are so many other websites out there with already existing great content. Ask yourself this have you seen a video one day that you enjoyed and then six months later end up trying to find it again? Usually the answer to this is yes and for good measure. Now with Cinema Haven you can simply bookmark the video forever (until its is deleted from the original hosting website). So now instead of having to sign up for each individual site you can sign up for one and store your favorites where they are easily accessible. You are also sharing these videos with the other users of Cinema Haven. I think the best part of this feature is the ability to create your own playlist and take it with you wherever you want. Pretty useful if you ask me.me.

Cinema Haven boasts better hosting than youtube itself by accepting 9 different video format hosting from wmv, flv, to mp4 and even the infamously high definition divx format. Have an existing facebook account? Even better, you can login with it and skip the entire registration process.

This service is also great for companies looking to market their products to a smaller public than youtube which notoriously buries submissions within 2 minutes. The creator behind Cinema Haven plans to expand the service to mobile devices later this year to offer hosting of videos that often clutter our mobile devices and also to offer playback from over 70% of it’s hosted or indexed content. Folks when I say it gets no better than this I mean it. Check it out for yourselves.

Animation Character – Heroes Of My Youth

My daily routine when I was a young kid at school was to go home and watch the cartoons before it was time for supper. This was usually Popeye, Yogi Bear, Tom and Jerry, Roadrunner or Top Cat. I would laugh myself silly, and it was the perfect way to relax after a double lesson of math. My favorite animation character then was Top Cat. Inspired by the Sergeant Bilko TV series with Phil Silvers, TC ran his alley and gang of alley cats with cunning and style. I knew I would never be as cool as him.

I have retained a fondness for the animation character heroes of my youth, and love to watch the replays. Cartoons, on TV and in movies, are still my favorite things to watch. I’m sure I’m not alone in this, and I think adults gain as much enjoyment from Toy Story, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles as children do. In fact, adults probably appreciate them more, because the best story involving an animation character works on two levels. There is the story which appeals to the kids and there are the inside adult jokes going on too.

The animation character has evolved over the years, from the first monochrome squiggles to the computer produced images we see today. The Walt Disney Studio made the major contribution in the early years, creating the iconic animation character of Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Goofy and Donald Duck. Walt Disney had a flair for knowing what the audience wanted and he wasn’t afraid to try new things. The movie industry was skeptical when Disney released the first full-length feature film for the animation character, with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was a success and the studio went from strength to strength, ending up with an empire of production companies and nine theme parks.

There is a huge industry surrounding the animation character, with merchandise and DVD’s. Just as there are rows upon rows of action figures of Buzz Lightyear in the film of Toy Story, so there are real figures of Buzz Lightyear in the shops.

D CAD models

CAD Drafters and CAD Designers”>Taking a 2D Blueprint and turning it into a 3D Model is done with CAD or Computer Aided Design. 2D meaning two dimensional and 3D meaning 3 dimensions are on two different design wavelengths. The first, 2D has been around forever on drafting tables across the entire world. This was the main and only way to do design work since before Leonardo Davinci. Now a days we have something called CAD otherwise known as Computer Aided Drafting. This in few words or less means using computer software to develop designs in a 3D environment with the use of tools within the computer software program. The first step in transforming 2D to 3D is to have a set of 2D blueprints. Once this has been achieved a CAD technician, Drafter, or CAD Draftsmen will begin the work necessary to complete the 3D model with the CAD software. More or less this means transporting the information from the blueprint into the software program. This is usually done by inputting information directly into the software like dimensions, radius’s, arc’s and more. CAD allows designers to turn these 2D lines into 3D models by using commands like extrude and revolve. These are just a few of the commands that can be used through out the design process when 3D modeling. CAD software today allows for several different ways to create a 3D model, and all CAD programs aren’t the same either. I’ve personally worked with several CAD software programs and each one is similar, but in some cases the design process can be completely backwards from others. I’ve found that Autodesk’s products maintain the CAD design processes throughout most of their software programs identically which make them easy to use. Transforming 2D to 3D is something a trained CAD Drafting Service should take on, instead of trying to perform this by yourself, besides the price on most CAD software is quite expensive. There are several CAD companies online and locally that can usually perform the necessary task of turning a 2D blueprint into a 3D CAD model. If you would

Home cinema systems and their rise in popularity

In the not too distant past, watching a film was a proper social activity, with the only possible way of doing so being to actually go to the cinema. However with the introduction of technology that is constantly being developed, it seemed inevitable that this would not remain the same.

Firstly, there were VCRs, yes that’s right, though they are obsolete now there once was a time when these were the height of technology and allowed consumers to rent, buy or even record films and view them in the comfort of their own homes. Then followed DVD players – these gave us better quality and eliminated the hassle of rewinding and fast forwarding and it was good, but it seemed there were still factors missing if you were to truly replicate the -cinema experience’.

The huge screens provided at the cinema were undeniably an essential factor in the experience, and certainly the TVs available when VCRs were around would have paled in comparison. Not only did the TVs have smaller screens but the speakers were also of poor quality and issues with the screen sizes and aspect ratios also proved to be problematic.

Nevertheless, all of this outdated technology, though left behind, has proved to be an essential stepping-stone for what was to follow, the home cinema. Yes, it seems that now the technology is available, more and more people are opting for the home cinema experience, transforming their living rooms into movie theatres. Watching films at home does seem to have its advantages; for instance, it’s often quieter and more convenient than going to actual theatre. So, what do you need to set up your home cinema system?

1)Though it may seems obvious, a good starting point is a large television. When you see a film in a theatre the screen envelops your field of view, allowing you to become completely emerged in the film. A TV with a big screen will help to imitate this. 2)Having a high quality telly is also essential. At the cinema we are always presented with huge high definition

Learn How To Succeed With The Most Difficult Task In Jewelry Photography

In the field of commercial photography, be it in motion or static, every category presents a challenge of its own. With jewelry photography, an object of highly reflective surface (HRS), the challenge is amplified due to its relatively small size captured mostly in close-up environment with shallow depth of field, surface complexity (specular), and limited ways of lighting due to space restriction between the lens and the object. Jewelry photography demands knowledge and experience to overcome the compounded difficulty of controlling reflections and limited depth-of-field (perceived sharpness) in close-up jewelry photography.

In addition to the problems mentioned above, the success of reproducing and obtaining a high quality digital image of jewelry will depend on the equipment used in the reproduction process. There are basically three types of camera systems one can employ:

a. Digital SLRs like Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sigma with good sensor resolution (6-14 MP)

b. Medium format cameras like Hassleblad, Rollei or Mamiya with a larger sensor digital back (11-39 MP)

c. Large format view cameras like Sinar or Toyo with live video studio solution (11-39 MP)

The purpose of this article is to discuss some of the principal challenges posed by the complexities of reflective surface reproduction, particularly in digital close-up photography. Below I will present some solution to these challenges from the lessons learned and experienced in my daily practice and from my own research as to what is the best, fastest, and simplest solution to an otherwise complex assignment of jewelry photography.

Jewelry surface (HRS)
The most difficult task of all HRS digital captures is jewelry. In essence all jewelry objects are built with reflective qualities of various degrees and can be compared to mirrors. Mirrors are objects with good specular or diffused reflection; that is, image forming qualities. Imagine pointing your lens towards a mirror at a close distance. What will you see? Exactly, yourself holding a camera and your surrounding area. Jewelry objects in essence embody three kinds of mirrors: flat, convex and concave determined at random by the jewelrys very shape. Curved mirrors magnify or shrink images therefore distort

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa… Music TV Channels for the road – Online Hindi Radio

Of course it’s very difficult to imagine life without television today, but that was the case years ago in India when plays were enacted and the troupes moved from one town to another to perform and entertain people. Such troupes were quite famous and often called to towns especially to perform and entertain during a celebration. The only other form of entertainment then was the radio. Radio in India began broadcasting on 23rd July 1927. 7BY was the first radio station inaugurated by The Indian Broadcasting Company and the city that was introduced to it was Bombay. Some years later All India Radio took over 7BY.
Radio was one form of connection and entertainment before the black and white TV came into the picture. The radio was also a source of information with addresses by the Prime Minister and the President given over the radio. Radio was popular then and went from a single radio channel to more than fifty. Fast forward to today and you will find that with all the technological progress happening radio has also grown to almost 400+ channels in various languages being broadcasted by All India Radio with at-least 100+ being Hindi Radio channels.
Radio is as popular today as it was then, and today you have the option to carry it with you on your phones instead of lugging around transistors. Not just this now you have online Hindi radio that offers better access to a large database of songs right from the oldies to the new movies songs to music videos and more. All kinds of music, plays, live radio shows are available on online Hindi radio. Play music from one of these online channels and create a playlist that you can listen to whenever the mood strikes you. If that doesn’t make you smile and you prefer the video along with the song then watch anyone of the music TV channels that television offers today.
Music TV channels give you a chance to watch your favourite hero dancing to the tunes of the most popular song currently. These channels do not just
