New Sports Documentary “A Giant Awakens” to Support USA’s Attempt to Defend the Olympic Gold Medal — Now Available on DVD













1924 USA Olympic Rugby Gold Medal Team


Sausalito, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2010

A Giant Awakens: the Rise of American Rugby looks at the majestic history of American rugby and captures the essence, spirit, and challenges of the game in America today. This film showcases all levels of American rugby from youth to the USA national teams in this inspiring 60-minute HD sports documentary by BIN15 Productions.

Directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Sylvain Doreau, the journey begins in the late 1800′s and runs through Olympic glory in the 1920′s, including the separation from gridiron American football. The journey continues after rugby’s 50-year near hibernation and participation in the Rugby World Cups. The finale addresses the new Olympic opportunity for rugby in 2016.

The film includes vintage footage from the American gold medal match that Sylvain helped uncover in France last year from the 1924 Olympics. With action-packed highlights set to music from today’s top independent bands from the San Francisco Bay Area and interviews with key players and administrators, A Giant Awakens is a must see for any sports fan.

20% of the film’s revenue supports youth rugby and will help develop the American team that will attempt to defend the gold medal in 2016.

Help the next generation of American rugby Olympians defend the gold! Help us communicate with sports fans, athletic boys and girls, documentary fans, history fans, rugby fans, athletic children, parents with athletic children, school administrators, athletic directors, and PE teachers.

Viewers will be able to download the acts’ music while the shows are actually on air. The contestant’s tracks will sit alongside those from the show’s judging panel including Dizzee Rascal (http://sky1.sky.com/dizzee-rascal ), Jamie Cullum (http://sky1.sky.com/jamie-cullum-2 ) and Sharleen Spiteri (http://sky1.sky.com/sharleen-spiteri-2 ).

This new downloading capability means that for the first time, in any UK televised talent competition, all contestants who reach the semi final stages have the chance to get their songs into the charts irrespective of whether they win the competition or not.

Sky 1 HD will not receive any revenue from the voting mechanisms.

Duncan Gray, Head of Entertainment, Sky1 HD and Sky1, 2 and 3, commented: “Customer interaction with Sky 1 HD is really important to us, whether they are in the UK or Republic of Ireland.  I’m really pleased that Must Be The Music is not only the first show to offer immediate song downloads for all the semi finalists’ performances, but also all our customers, including those in the Republic of Ireland, will now get a chance to vote for their favourite act, and for only 5 pence/ 7 cents per phone call. This is a great step forward in offering interactive services that make the editorial more accessible for the viewer.”

In addition to each contestant’s tracks being available for immediate download, the individual contestants, judges and presenter will have their own social media profiles including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Bebo and MySpace. Each site which will host exclusive footage and behind-the-scenes clips of the artists as well as snippets of their live performances on SoundCloud.

TotalExam Examination Camera Now Available in Four Models for Telemedicine and Non-Medical Purposes










Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) November 9, 2010

GlobalMedia Group, the leader in innovative telemedicine design, today announced that its unique TotalExam™ examination camera is now available in four models. The lightweight, easy-to-hold, easy-to-use digital video camera comes with an onboard light carousel featuring three LED white light intensities for use domestically. Partnered with CapSure®, GlobalMedia’s exclusive Image Automation software, TotalExam can produce crystal clear digital images that can be saved to a computer file. With GlobalMedia’s CONi™ Services, the images can be preserved with DICOM information in an EMR or Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS).

For international use, there are two TotalExam models – a National Television System Committee (NTSC) version for use in countries like Canada, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea where it is the TV standard; and a Phase Alternating Line (PAL) version for Australia, South Africa and most European countries whose televisions work with higher video resolution. The international models feature both white lights and two ultra-violet LED settings.

A fourth version of the TotalExam is for non-medical uses. It too features both white and UV LEDs. Teamed with a tablet computer system like GlobalMedia’s FirstAV™ and CapSure, its UV LEDs can help forensic scientists search for blood, urine, saliva and semen traces at crime scenes, and then transmit live video via 3G/4G or save the images for use in criminal cases. Fire investigators can use the same system to locate and capture images showing that an arson accelerant started a fire. Mechanics can use TotalExam to identify leaks by different, easily distinguishable fluorescent colors, such as those involving differential oil, wheel bearings, air conditioning systems and brake fluid. The camera’s small size and lighting system provide visual access to otherwise hard-to-see areas.

GlobalMedia Managing Director Joel E. Barthelemy said, “I am very proud of our team for listening and responding with an innovative solution to meet the needs of the global market.”

About GlobalMedia

Scottsdale, Arizona based GlobalMedia designs, manufactures and markets telemedicine solutions and medical image automation systems that provide superior image quality, unmatched versatility and unsurpassed simplicity for the healthcare industry.

10 inch Android Tablet

Denver, CO (Vocus) November 12, 2010

Archos, one of the first manufacturers to offer Android tablets, is pleased to announce the addition of two new internet tablets to its Android-based product line.

The Archos 101 touch screen tablet is quite a handful of technology. With a large high-resolution 10.1’’ screen and less than half an inch thick, it offers internet access and HD multimedia that is completely customizable with the abundance of Android applications. For consumers who prefer a smaller package and a capacitive touch screen, the company has created the Archos 70, with a 7.0” screen and capabilities similar to the Archos 101 plus an optional 250GB storage capacity. Both touch screen tablets allow users to surf the web in full width just like on a PC, so no more fumbling around on scaled-down web pages with less than full functionality.

The Archos 70 comes with 8GB or 250GB, while the Archos 101 offers 8GB or 16GB. Tethering, using a mobile phone’s internet capabilities, enables users to be connected to the internet from anywhere by simply plugging in a mobile phone equipped with 3.5 G & Bluetooth™ . No Bluetooth? Users can connect via the USB cable.

The Archos Android tablets become real game consoles when players use the device itself as a gamepad. The 3D open GL technology and the accelerometer provide a gaming experience like no other. Other popular features on these touch screen tablets include easy video chatting with friends and family, using the forward facing camera and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as playing out HD videos on a large screen TV with the HDMI out connection.

Archos provides other exclusive applications to amplify the digital experience of its customers. Both internet tablets feature music, video and photo applications, all developed by the company. These apps enrich the user experience with smooth browsing through the album covers and with widgets added to the home screen to give instant access and control to media.

The Archos Android tablets are competitively priced. The Archos 101 sells for just $ 299.99 for 8GB

and 349.99 for 16GB, while the Archos 70 sells for only $ 274.99 and $ 349.99 for 8GB and 250GB, respectively. The Archos 70 (8GB model) is available now through the official Archos store. The Archos 101 will be available the week of 11/8/10.

About ARCHOS: Archos released the first pocket-sized HD-based MP3 player with the Jukebox 6000 in 2000 and since that time has revolutionized consumer electronics devices. It invented the portable media player in 2003 and was the first to bring television recording, wireless and touch screens to portable media players. Established in 1988, ARCHOS has offices in the United States, Europe and Asia. ARCHOS is listed on Euronext Paris, Compartment B, ISIN Code FR0000182479. store.archos.com.
