Ventura, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2010

Published by Sybex (Wiley) this unique guide is a comprehensive how-to of professional production techniques, step-by-step instruction, and tips that can save you time and money. Learn when to use green screens instead of blue, find out how the pros operate in professional studios and get amazing results–even on a shoestring budget.

Topics include matting and keying basics; setups using fabric, portable background panels, or paint; lighting and digital camera essentials; broadcast TV hardware switchers; professional HD and major motion picture compositing; multiple-colored screen composites (background, foregrounds, and objects); directing storyboards and talent; working with virtual sets; motion tracking; and much more.

According to Foster, “No one yet has provided this kind of extensive information that combines historical research, practical application, accurate lighting, shooting and set up in one book. My passion for this subject combined with twenty years experience hopefully has resulted in a project that will raise the level of green screen production from the novice to the professional.”

A flat screen TV costs a lot of money — you do not want to damage it by neglecting to clean it or by cleaning it in the wrong way. Even more important than the money, however, is the entertainment value of the television. It is a place where your friends and family can come together to relax and enjoy being together. You do not want to ruin this and lose the fellowship that it can create. You need to make sure to do a few things to clean your Logik TV on a regular basis so that it does not wear out as quickly.

The first thing to remember is that traditional cleaning agents are not meant for your television. Those may be great for cleaning the top of a desk or the front face of a cabinet, but they are not good for your television at all. They can damage or even ruin the screen. You do not want to take this chance. Even if you are being careful and trying not to get the cleaning solution on the screen, it is better to just avoid these dangerous chemicals altogether. Use water and a rag or a special cleaning solution that is mean for a flat screen TV.

After you have the right supplies, make sure that you unplug your television from the wall. This is true of a standard HD TV or a TV DVD combination. Any time that you are working with electronics, you want to make sure that you keep water far away from the outlets. Electricity and water do not mix well. Having the television plugged in while you clean it could either lead to harm to you, physically, or damage to the television.

Make sure that you get the cloth damp and not wet. You do not want it to be dripping because it could then drip water inside of the television. This can cause all sorts of problems with the interior workings of the television which are made of metal and wires. You could ruin the television forever if water or cleaning solution gets inside of it. You just want to gently run the cloth over the surface of the television, making sure to get all of the vents. This is the same way that you would dust any other place in your home, and you can have a lot of success if you are careful.

Most important of all is that you make a decision to do this on a regular basis. The television can be a lot harder to clean if it has been left sitting for a long time and has not been cleaned. It can also become damaged because of poor ventilation and other complications.

Charlie is a fan of tech. Whether you’re looking for a flat screen tv or a logik tv, or you want to find the latest tv dvd combo set; Charlie’s the man!

Telecast Fiber Systems Announces CopperHead™ Pro for Big Screen “I-MAG” Applications

CopperHead Pro – Camera Unit and Base station for I-MAG applications.

Worcester, MA (Vocus) September 10, 2010

At IBC2010, Telecast Fiber Systems will unveil the CopperHead™ Pro, a camera-mounted fiber optic transceiver specifically designed for high-definition (HD) image magnification (I-MAG) applications in houses of worship, music venues, and corporate events. The CopperHead Pro offers a versatile and affordable solution that leverages the light weight, high reliability, and superior quality of fiber cable for projecting high-quality HD images.

“Until now, churches and many other types of A/V venues have not been able to take advantage of camera-mounted fiber optic solutions for I-MAG, because the cost has been prohibitive. At the same time, audience expectations for high-quality projected video have increased, along with the quality of HD projectors and displays,” said Jim Hurwitz, director of product management for Telecast Fiber Systems. “The CopperHead Pro directly addresses these requirements with a solution that is specifically tailored to the I-MAG market, at a price that is affordable for any production team.”

The compact CopperHead Pro camera unit sandwiches instantly between any HD/SDI video camera and a professional battery system such as Anton-Bauer® or “V”-Mount, transporting uncompressed HD video signals from the camera to the control room via either tactical fiber or hybrid SMPTE cable. The system provides complete camera control as well as full bi-directional intercom and tally — all of the signals the producer and crew need for the highest-quality image magnification in venues ranging from the smallest church to the largest arena or stadium.

All CopperHead systems are available directly from Telecast Fiber Systems, or via a network of authorized CopperHead dealers. For a demonstration of the CopperHead Pro visit Telecast Fiber Systems at IBC2010, stand 10.B39.

It’s amazing when you think of how far technology has come. It was only just a joke when Ralph Kramden told his wife Alice that the reason he wouldn’t buy a tv is because he was waiting for 3D television.

As funny as that was at the time, today it is a reality and with the size of television screens increasing to phenominal proportions, it’s no wonder that people want to by flat screen tv’s.

If you don’t yet own your own flat screen television, how much longer do you think you can go on looking at your old 32″ before you decide to upgrade?

Today’s flat screen technology is capable of providing the user with an incredible viewing experience that can only be topped by going to a movie theatre.


Types of Flat Screen TV’s

There are three popular types of flat screen tv’s that are available:

1. Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)

2. Plasma

3. Light Emitting Diode (LED)

Each of these types of televisions has the ability to produce crisp and clear colors that will make you feel as though you’ve just been cast in the latest hit movie.

LCD TV’s have a tendency show a blurry picture in high action scenes that involve a lot of fast movement and the average life span of LCD TV’s is approximately 30 to 70 thousand hours.

Plasma TV’s are very good at depicting low light and shadow areas and have an average life span of approximately 50 to 90 thousand hours. They are also a bit on the heavy side.

LED TV’s are a somewhat of a happy medium between LCD and Plasma TV’s.

It’s good to take into consideration who will be watching the flatscreen tv you decide to buy as this will help with the decision to buy one that comes with internet connectivity and whether or not that is of major importance or not.

Also depending on the room that you will be watching your television in can also help in determining whether or not you’ll need to purchase home theater equipment or if the sound from the tv itself is enough.

Regardless of what you decide, the difference between a 52″ inch projection screen tv and a 52″ flat screen HD Tv is like night and day.

A cool gadet, well made. However, where I’m based in the UK the freeview signal isn’t that strong and the supplied aerials didn’t do the business. When you get a picture it is an excellent one. Very sharp and very bright.

2009 Flat Screen HDTV Black Friday Deals Compared

2009 Black Friday HDTV Deals Compared

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 25, 2009 announced today that it painstakingly compared over 100 HDTV flat screen Black Friday doorbuster deals to find out which retailers customers should go to for the best deals on the TV of their choice.

Sorting through the various Black Friday deals was no easy task, especially considering some retailers still attempt to keep their Black Friday deals a secret until Thanksgiving. The comprehensive research revealed some interesting data points that shed light on HDTV trends and retailer strategy, including:

    79% of the doorbuster deals were for LCD TVs and only 21% were for Plasmas
    66% of LCD flat screens were full HD (1080p) – much higher than previous years
    Flat screen HDTVs can now be had for as little as $ 250 for a 32” 720p LCD

In most head-to-head comparisons between retailers selling the same television, Best Buy had the lowest price, often by undercutting Walmart deals by one penny. For example, a 40″ Samsung LCD 1080p HDTV can be purchased at Best Buy for $ 597.99, one penny below Walmart’s price and $ 2 cheaper than Sears for the exact same television.
