Technology

For years I have marveled over the rapid growth of technology. I think technology is great! It has came so far dating back to the world war II age. The first radio and tv now we have smart phones and smart houses. I do not believe robots will be take over earth but I think robots will help make our lifestyles easier. I watched a movie called       I Robot. This film starred Will Smith, a story about his nightmare. Will Smith was en voled in a life changing accident were his car and a another crash into a river or lake. While both cars are steady sinking a rescue robot is first on the scene. Based on some a stat, the robots realizes he has to make a decision on who to save first. The robot elected to save Will Smith when the other car had a little girl screaming for help. Will Smith tries desperately to tell the robot to save the little girl but when a machine has made a decision, it supports that decision. Will Smith is saved with minor injuries while that little girl doesn’t survive.

I think eventually we will have to share a place in society with robots. Sometimes I think robots are the future. Factory workers are being replaced by robots. Assembly lines are computerized. Its intresting to see smart houses on youtube. A house that is sleep when you away but wakes when you arrive! Whats next for the future, flying cars?

 

Home Video Technology

I believe home video technology is very important! I think it is important in peoples lives because it captures the moment. You can watch your kids grow to become adults, you could help people by filming yourself then uploading your instructional video to you tube. You can film home birthday parties, graduations or even normal day to day things. People use different technologies to capture these everyday life changing events. Some people like digital cameras. Digital cameras works in a similar way to a digital still camera but enables moving images to be captured as a serious of still digital images. Advantages:1.Portable and more resolution compared to webcams 2.Rich features like zoom, video editing etc. 3. Both have online and offline capabilities. 

Disadvantage They are more expensive than still cameras and web cameras.

Advantages of Emerging Video Technologies over Traditional ones

  • Provides markedly better picture (and sound) quality over analog technology
  • Provides more programming choices over analog technology
  • Provides more control and flexibility of viewing schedules over analog technology

Disadvantages of Emerging Video Technologies over Traditional TV

  • Equipment costs are greater than traditional analog technology
  • Service costs are greater than traditional analog technology

I think majority of the people who make home videos, do not know how to properly make a video nor do they know how to properly tag a you tube video. People are not aware of the violations and terms when uploading a video to you tube. I have witness some crazy homemade videos on this social media site.   

Technology is the “New Literacy”. We need technology and need to be aware of the constant changes and upgrades in technology. I feel as if this is the way of the future. I found a link below titled “Smart House”, this is the future! 

I believe it is important as a communication major to learn the proper way to shoot and edit video. I think some were in the communication job field there will be a time in which cameras  and technology will play a role in success. I feel as a broadcaster, anchor, radio personality or host you will be filmed and you want to be filmed correctly.  Video is the most powerful communication tool since move able type. Our society has become obsessed with the internet, so much that it was initially created for personal use and entertainment and turned into mass media.

Future of Television

One hundred fifteen million households in the U.S. have a television set in them. Cable television is the #! way to watch TV in America. Cable television channels and videotapes give the audience member access to specialized programs and material, far beyond what is available on the three commercial television networks and public television.
Television has changed a lot over the years–from black-and-white tube sets to Technicolor consoles to plasma and LED high-definition TVs.
But the medium is still evolving. Tech companies are producing bigger (yet thinner) TV screens and immersive, customizable viewing experiences with Internet connectivity, widgets, and apps; and broadcasters are looking at ways to move beyond high-definition.
Ultimately, I’m convinced we will get to what I call RD3D media, which is retinal definition, three-dimensional media where it’s almost indistinguishable from just looking out a window, for example. I think when we get the pixel density about eight times where it is today in high definition, and when we solve some of these lingering issues with 3D television without glasses, and we think that’s certainly workable at that pixel density over the next 10 years, so we want to be on those platforms too.
