Dr. Richard Knabb Joins The Weather Channel As Tropical Weather Expert











Atlanta, GA (Vocus) April 16, 2010

The Weather Channel® Companies (TWCC) names Dr. Richard Knabb as the network’s new hurricane expert and tropical program manager. Dr. Knabb will be TWC’s on-camera hurricane expert providing in-depth forecast analysis and tropical storm updates as they happen.

In making the announcement, Geoffrey Darby, executive vice president of programming for The Weather Channel, said, “Rick brings tremendous experience to this role and is no stranger to high profile hurricane activity, having worked with the National Hurricane Center (NHC) during the record-setting 2005 Atlantic season. He will help lead our on-air and cross-platform tropical coverage, providing continuous updates as hurricanes and tropical storms develop.”

As a senior hurricane specialist at NHC from 2005-2008, he prepared and issued official forecasts and warnings during the 2005 hurricane season with Hurricanes Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita and Wilma. Perhaps most notably, Dr. Knabb signed the advisory announcing that Katrina had become a major hurricane over the Gulf of Mexico.

Sony Spate of Good News Justifies Tech Strategy, Says Indie Expert










Spokane, WA (PRWEB) November 30, 2007

Sony’s recent spate of good news — a stock jump (14.7 percent over four days in Japan), news that Dubai International Capital LLC had bought a “substantial” stake in the company, and reports that its Blu-Ray discs had captured 73% of the European market and passed the one million unit sales mark there — all add up to one thing, says DVD pioneer and Blue Ray Technologies head Erick Hansen.

“The consumers have spoken. Blu-ray is far and away the winner. Besides the one million Blu-ray movies sold in Europe, PS3 game discs produced for sale there exceeds 21 million, according to the Blu-Ray Disc Association,” Hansen said of the consumer impact.

“These economic indicators show Sony’s Blu-Ray, PS3 and overall High Definition tactics are finally paying off after years of heavy investment,” said Hansen. “The synergy between its HD TVs, games and Blu-ray evidently make sense now to the financial community and savvy investors. You buy a razor and you’re going to want some blades. And vice versa.

“Dubai apparently believes that Sony is a good strategic investment right now. That Sony’s drive to be a leader in digital delivery will work,” Hansen continued. “Kagan Research and other predicting that by 2010, there will be 97 million HD TV sets sold reaching 82% of total TV households. Many consumers are going to want their movies and games in the true HD 1080p format, the Blu-Ray standard. And every component has come down in price, making it more affordable than ever.”

Hansen pointed out that news of the 1 millionth Blu-ray Disc sale in Europe was met with pleasure in many of the leading Hollywood studios. Bob Chapek, Worldwide President, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment issued a statement that he believes that this news is the prelude for an exponential growth period in BD sales.

“Blu-ray will inevitably prevail because Blu-ray delivers what consumers want: True High Definition picture without compromise, the best sound quality, the best choice in content, the most in special features, and of course the most disc storage capacity. No tradeoffs. No compromises,” commented Chapek.

“Furthermore, the Blu-ray disc royalty becomes significant and could be worth billions. My company is independent, yet Sony and Philips control the patent pool and get a piece of every disc we make.”

Hansen is well situated to observe the ups and downs of Sony’s efforts. He’s been through several hardware/software wars and manufactured the first DVD movies and games in the 90s. The outspoken executive made headlines recently for branding rival formats HD-DVD’s payour of $ 150 million to Paramount for exclusivity to the studio’s titles “desperate” and now calls the 720p screen format “antique and obsolete.”

Blue Ray Technologies (http://www.blueraytechnologies.com) recently completed its $ 12 million plant in downtown Spokane, WA, and produced the first run of true indie Blu-ray discs in the U.S. following an arrangement with Sabic Innovative Plastics, formerly GE Plastics. The advanced, eco-friendly plant is the first of its kind in the world.

Expert Reveals The Secrets Of High-Definition Video-Image Quality In Exclusive Video











www.HDCameraGuide.com


New York, N.Y. (PRWEB) September 9, 2009

Mark Schubin, winner of multiple Emmy awards and a fellow of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, is now sharing his world-renowned video-technology expertise with HDCameraGuide.com, the premiere online site for information about all types of HD video cameras, lenses, and accessories. In a free video at http://www.hdcameraguide.com/guide/faqs/mark-schubin-on-hd-camera-image-quality, Schubin explains the relationship between HD camera-imager size and HD video picture quality.

“There’s an extraordinary range of HD cameras out there, from little tiny ones that cost about $ 100, way up to digital cinematography models,” Schubin says in the video’s introduction. “They all look really good…but you can’t really expect something that costs $ 100 to provide the same quality as something that costs a quarter of a million dollars. There are many differences…one of the important differences relates to the size of the sensor, the size of the image that is formed inside the camera from which everything else derives.”

Schubin then proceeds to elaborate on this point and to explain how related factors such as sensitivity, signal-to-noise ratio, HD dynamic range, depth of field, wide-angle lenses, zoom ratios, and optical aberrations all play a role in determining HD camera image quality. “All things being equal,” Schubin concludes, “the larger the video-imager format, the better the video is going to look.”

Experts at HDCameraGuide.com concur, noting that although HD cameras with 1/3-inch (and even smaller) imagers are proliferating among consumers, prosumers, and even some professional users, HD cameras with 2/3-inch and larger CCD and CMOS camera-imagers continue to dominate in such premium-quality production sectors as televised sports, documentaries, network program production, and digital cinematography.

Since its launch less than a year ago, HDCameraGuide.com has become the premier HD camera information site for all levels of interest. In addition to its extensive information on HD cameras, lenses, and accessories for broadcast, professional, and digital cinematography, HDCameraGuide.com also features a consumer section with extensive data and informative videos on all major prosumer and consumer brands of HD camcorders and digital photography cameras. Also included are: an interactive HD Lens Selector and Learning Center video tutorials from such experts as Canon Broadcast national marketing manager Larry Thorpe, Digital Cinema Society president James Mathers, and Goodman’s Guides author Robert Goodman.

About HDCameraGuide.com
