Content Insider #560 - Extended Viewing By Miles Weston Our son recently said he doesn't like TV even though the weekend before he spent three hours in his room binging on some new Netflix series on his iPhone. Right now he has to constantly recharge it so he can watch all the extreme Olympics contests. He doesn't really dislike TV, he just likes to pick when/where/how he watches the stuff. Sure if you're "of a certain age" you like watching the 6 p.m. news at 6 p.m. but the Olympics coverage is proving people increasingly like the convenience of the video stream. Now all we have to do is wait for 5G to move beyond trials and into the real world. Maybe it will be here for the 2020 Olympics! ...Read More »

ATEN 2-Port Thunderbolt 2 Sharing Switch By Stephen Schleicher Once upon a time, there was a young man - we'll call him Stephen - who worked during the day at a remote location, slaving away for the man; his MacBook Pro was his only way to get work done. At night, he would come home and go to work on his Mac Pro, editing, and writing, and generally doing work that needed to be handled on a beefier computer, with multiple monitors. In fact, much of his work benefited from multiple monitors, but connecting multiple monitors to his MacBook Pro and his Mac Pro was a nightmare at best, as cables needed to be connected and reconnected, potentially ruining ports, and driving Stephen mad as he tried to maintain a neat cabling system. ...Read More »

The Rise of the Approachable Expert With the exponential growth of video, voice over and audio have become increasingly important aspects of production. Formerly limited to radio and TV spots, today voice is an integral part of productions of all kinds and formats - from a 15 second YouTube ad, to the audio instructions for e-learning platforms, to the characters behind video games and even the voices behind new AI assistants. But as voice has become more integrated into daily life, there has been a movement toward a more customized, personable tone - more closely resembling a knowledgeable friend than that of a professor. ...Read More »

Content Insider #552 - Breaking the Trend By Miles Weston Every year the Oscar nominated movies get the award for the most illegally downloaded, viewed movies. That is a dubious honor.

If enough people turn away from the screen we'll take all the fun outta stealing them. Doesn't take a lot of work to say no. And if you decide to view the content it's nice to know you're saying thanks to that person even if you don't pay him or her directly. ...Read More »
