Smart Devices: HD Mobile Chroma Key and the Industrial Revolution

March 25, 2014 Los Angeles, CA (APD/TDN News) - “HD Chroma key on supercomputing HD television camera phones is like the invention of the train during the Industrial Revolution. Trains transported Rockefeller's Standard Oil across the land to grow the country, creating jobs, industries and new cities with one innovation: The steam engine. We are in a disruptive technology revolution. Investing in emerging technology is unusually risky because it is an unknown. However, Warren Buffett has always invested in trains because he understands consumers will always need toothpaste and razor blades---and the trains to distribute them---just like the TV and Film Industry uses Chroma Key background replacement and professional lights to make better video content for less money. Therefore, professional lights, sound and Chroma Key on supercomputing television camera phones and tablets will be staples of video production---our steam engine.  The train is the DreamScreen with mobile lights, sound and Chroma key paired with smart devices, and the tracks are YouTube---because its mobile---its free distribution---and it generates lots and lots of revenue."

Everyone Will Be A TV Station Soon

October 11th, 2014 (NYT/TDN NEWS) -  Everybody get your cameras and start filming something, pronto. Networking giant Cisco Systems is waiting.  At a speech at the Oracle OpenWorld trade show Wednesday, John Chambers, Cisco’s chief executive, predicted that “video will be the platform for all forms of communication in I.T. as we go forward.”

While he was addressing this message to several thousand corporate I.T. professionals, Mr. Chambers also saw consumers moving to more video too because the Internet-connected mobile devices enable easier video production and consumption. “There will be one million TV stations in the U.S.,” he said. “You’ll have Little League stations, home stations.”

It is a position which, not surprisingly, plays well to Cisco’s strategy. The more bits travel over the Internet, the more demand there is for Cisco-style routers, and few things create more bits than video. It is defensible, too: The sheer magnitude of the task of networking high-bandwidth content favors capital-rich incumbents over start-ups. Cisco, Mr. Chambers said, “no longer makes devices that are not video capable.”

But there are plenty of reasons to think Mr. Chambers has a point.

As cameras in smartphones like the new Apple iPhone 4S get better, and memory gets cheaper, there will be more video on the fly. Within the corporate world, Cisco and competitors like Polycomand Microsoft are benefiting from the growth of so-called telepresence meetings over the Web where people meet virtually through individual cameras on their desks. The “hangout” feature on Google’s Google+ social networking software is the latest version of this, and Google is working on ways to tie those video sessions to its calendar, spreadsheet and document sharing office productivity products.

Mr. Chambers also demonstrated some stunning, and potentially creepy, ways this may be going. He showed a new Cisco device in which all the talking in the conference session could be transcribed by machine. Words and terms were later searchable to find points in the video when they were mentioned. The company is also working with a maker of infrared cameras that detect the blood-water content of human skin. Mr. Chambers showed how Cisco could measure the number of people in a car, so a government could decide how much to charge on a toll road.

Even if the video boom does not happen as big or as fast as Mr. Chambers expects, he had other reasons to justify his natural optimism. Since 2007, he said, the world had gone from one Internet-connected device per person to five devices per person today.
