GUIDANCE FOR SETTING DEADLINES FOR VIDEO: Deadlines will vary from mission to mission but a good rule of thumb is to give your soldiers about three days to shoot, write and edit, produce a package, and then re-edit with any corrections that may need to be made. With that package should be 6 to 8 minutes of their best b-roll from the shoot and any interviews they shot, in their entirety, with slates. Factors that you should consider are equipment issues (one beyonds and cameras will probably go down at some point during the course of your year in the sandbox), mission logistics ( your soldiers will most likely get stuck somewhere at some point), sick call (yes, you can look forward to Saddam’s revenge or the ‘creeping crud’ as I like to call it at least once in the 12 months), and possible follow up questions or the necessity to gather additional b-roll to complete the story.

What my CDR did and I think its brilliant in its simplicity is to send his teams out for two to three weeks at a time and give each soldier a quota for the whole period (Qs had 5 print stories and Rs had a minimum of 5 video packages with slates, b-roll and interviews). Each soldier was responsible for his own time management. When we returned to Speicher, we would do post production and put together our newsletter and video magazine with everything that was shot. Memorials should take no more than two days, they may need to go home with the soldier accompanying the body.

Remember, ‘hooah videos’ and special projects are very time intensive and could take weeks. Hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, my email is or…...

Video System

...1. The description the requirement of the video system is as below. ------------------------------------------------- A video store system runs a series of fairly standard video stores. Before a video can be put on the shelf, it must be cataloged and entered into the video database. Every customer must have a valid customer card in order to rent a video. A customer rents the video for three days at a time. Every time a customer rents a video, the system must ensure that they do not have any overdue videos. If so, the overdue videos must be returned and an overdue fee must be paid before the customer can rent more videos. Likewise, if the customer has returned overdue videos, but has not paid the overdue fee, the fee must be paid before a new video can be rented. Every morning, the store manager prints a report that lists overdue videos. If a video is two or more days overdue, the manager calls the customer to remind him/her to return the video. If a video is returned in a damaged condition, the manager removes it from the video database and may sometimes charge the customer. a. Draw a use case model for the video system described above. Manager Manage customer Add video Rent Return Overdue Print report Delete video charge Customers (10 marks) b. Rental is one of the use cases in the video system.

These motherboards replace the older at form and it is also smaller, it has better organization and more variety of I/O devices. The ATX motherboard supports the P1 power supply witch can be the 20 pin or the 24 pin type, it has PS/2 and USB slots and both AGP and PCI memory slots. It also has 2 IDE connectors and at least 4 SATA slots. It has a soft power button on the front of the case that you can configure so when you press that power button is going to allow the computer to shut down normally and let the operating system reboot normally, and on the back there is a power switch that when press this is going to cut all the power of the motherboard. This motherboard has better air flow and intake front vent, a back exhaust vent and a parallel air flow to the CPU. The second motherboard that is show in this video is the NLX motherboard The NLX motherboard also known as the daughter board has BUSES on the back of the motherboard. Most of the time these BUSES are made of cooper and their jobs is to connect the components and alow delivery of power and data. The System BUS connects the mother board to the CPU. It supports a P1 power supply the 20 pin type or the 24 pin type. This motherboard can support the 40 pin IDE connector, a 34 pin floppy drive, SATA connectors and 50 or......

...Video Case: Constraint Management at Southwest Airlines Question 1: Analyze Southwest’s passenger boarding process using the Theory of Constraints. Southwest Airlines is an airline company that has set industry benchmarks of having the best turnaround ratios, in an industry where lead time during different operations is very time consuming. Southwest currently boasts a rapid gate-turnaround of 25 minutes or less, and it demonstrates how attention to activities pertaining to ground operations (including cleaning of the aircraft, fuelling and flight preparation) can help the company in being so operationally efficient. Customers rave about low fares, exceptional customer service, and the biggest competitive advantage that Southwest has over its competitors is its’ ability to have a lack of assigned seating that allows customers to choose where they can sit on the plane. Having a turnaround of 25 minutes or less brings about potential areas of bottlenecks; for instance if wheelchair assistance is required for passengers, a bottleneck might arise that may hinder the turnaround time of 25 minutes. Hence, operations managers at Southwest need to carefully evaluate the current processes in order to achieve better efficiency and reach turnaround times even lower than 25 minutes. The Theory of Constraints is a systematic management approach that focuses on actively managing those constraints that impede a firm’s progress towards its goal. Southwest Airlines currently wants to make......

...Chapter 4: Feasibility of Proposed Standards CHAPTER 4: Feasibility of Proposed Standards Section 213(a)(3) of the Clean Air Act presents statutory criteria that EPA must evaluate in determining standards for nonroad engines and vehicles. The standards must "achieve the greatest degree of emission reduction achievable through the application of technology which the Administrator determines will be available for the engines or vehicles to which such standards apply, giving appropriate consideration to the cost of applying such technology within the period of time available to manufacturers and to noise, energy, and safety factors associated with the application of such technology." This chapter presents the technical analyses and information that form the basis of EPA's belief that the proposed emission standards are technically achievable accounting for all the above factors. 4.1 CI Recreational Marine The proposed emission standards CI recreational marine engines are summarized in the Executive Summary. We believe that manufacturers will be able to meet these standards using technology similar to that required for the commercial marine engine standards. This section discusses technology currently used on CI recreational marine engines and anticipated technology to meet the proposed standards. In addition, this section discusses the emission test procedures and not-to-exceed requirements. 4.1.1 Baseline Technology for CI Recreational Marine Engines We developed......

Reflection on Video Vignette – Video 6

...Reflection on video vignette – Video 6 In this reflective essay I will be discussing how my observation of a video vignette can help me to understand and build knowledge of therapeutic communication and also how I can further develop characteristics of therapeutic communication which I see within myself already. I have selected vignette 6, consultation with the midwife in emergency to observe and reflect upon my knowledge and awareness of this subject. In particular I will be focusing on how active listening and clarifying with a patient can affect the communication. The vignette opens in the emergency department of a hospital, a young woman Sally, who has probably suffered a stroke waits with her husband for a midwife to arrive and check the health and status of her fetus as she is 28 weeks pregnant. The midwife enters and introduces herself explaining that she will be listening for the heartbeat of the baby. After establishing that the baby is alive she answers some questions David the husband has and advises she may come back to check on them later in the day. The conversation was carried out in a professional and appropriate tone. The midwife suitably introduced herself and explained to the patient what she would be doing. However after this point I felt the content and relevance of the communication was lost on the patient and her husband. In particular, the way that the midwife did not elaborate on the health of the fetus and that she......

Video Games

...A video game is an electronic game that involves human interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device. The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device, but it now implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles. These platforms range from large mainframe computers to small handheld devices. Specialized video games such as arcade games, while previously common, have gradually declined in use. Video games have gone on to become an art form and industry. The input device primarily used to manipulate video games is called a game controller, and varies across platforms. For example, a controller might consist of only a button and a joystick, while another may feature a dozen buttons and one or more joysticks. Early personal computer games often needed a keyboard for gameplay, or more commonly, required the user to buy a separate joystick with at least one button. Many modern computer games allow or require the player to use a keyboard and a mouse simultaneously. A few of the most common game controllers are gamepads, mouses, keyboards, and joysticks. In recent years, additional methods of input have emerged such as camera-based player observation for video game consoles and touch-sensitive screens on mobile devices. Video games typically......

...October 2002 national competency standards for the enrolled nurse Introduction Description of Enrolled Nurse National Competency Standards Assessing Competence Glossary of Terms Introduction The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council (ANMC) is a peak national nursing and midwifery organisation established in 1992 with the purpose of developing a national approach to nursing and midwifery regulation. The ANMC works in conjunction with the state and territory nursing and midwifery regulatory authorities (NMRAs) to produce national standards which are an integral component of the regulatory framework to assist nurses and midwives to deliver safe and competent care. The standards include the national competency standards for enrolled nurses which were first adopted by the ANMC in the early 1990s. These have been reviewed and revised regularly since then. Other standards developed by the ANMC for implementation by the NMRAs include the competency standards for registered nurses, midwives and nurse practitioners, codes of professional conduct and ethics, and a range of position statements and guidelines. The full list of standards, position papers and guidelines produced by the ANMC can be viewed on the website. The national competency standards for the enrolled nurse are scheduled for review in 2007. This review will be undertaken by a team of expert nursing consultants and will include extensive consultation with nurses around Australia. The purpose underpinning the......

Video Summary

...Video 1.07 talked about different ports and connections on a computer motherboard or integrated card. Serial ports are male and have 9 to 25 connector pins. Parallel ports are female and have 25 connector pins. Serial connections send information one bit at a time while parallel connections send information 8 bits at a time. Game ports are female and contain 15 pins in 2 rows. Modern mouse and keyboard connections are PS/2, USB, or wireless. NIC connections convert parallel communication to serial and use an RJ-45 connector. A modem connection uses an RJ-11 connector and converts analog signals to digital signal and back. There are three types of video connections: VGA, DVI, and S-video. USB, or Universal Serial Bus, is hot-swappable, which means you can plug it into the computer while it is running and it will automatically configure without having to reboot. There are two types of SCSI connections: Narrow SCSI which is Type A with 50 pins, and Wide SCSI, which is Type P with 68 pins. IEEE 1394 or Firewire is Serial, fast, hot-swappable, and is used for streaming media. Last there is Multimedia which consists of your microphone, speaker, and earphone jacks.

Video Compression: an Examination of the Concepts, Standards, Benefits, and Economics

...Video Compression: An Examination of the Concepts, Standards, Benefits, and Economics ITEC620 April 14, 2008 To accommodate the increased demand for digital video content, compression technology must be used. This paper examines the most commonly used compression formats, the MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 video compression formats, their relative benefits and differences, the delivery methods available for digital video content and the economics of video content delivery. Every time a digital video disc is played, a video is watched on YouTube, an NFL clip is viewed on a Sprint-based cellular phone, or a movie is ordered through an on-demand cable television video service, the viewer is watching data that is not in the state it which it originated. Video in an unmodified state is comprised of vast quantities of data (Apostopoulos & Wee, 2000). In order to make effective and efficient usage of video data, some method of reducing the quantity of data is necessary. Apostopoulos and Wee, in their 2000 paper, “Video Compression Standards” explain this succinctly and well, “For example, consider the problem of video transmission within high-definition television (HDTV). A popular HDTV video format is progressively scanned 720x1280 pixels/frame, 60 frames/s video signal, with 24-bits/pixel (8 bits for red, green, and blue), which corresponds to a raw data rate of about 1.3 Gbits/sec. Modern digital communication systems can......

Video Summary

...Unit 3 Assignment 1: Video Summary 1 2) Video one talks mostly about ports and the different kinds of ports that are used in computers today. It also covers what a modem is, its uses, and its speed. Video one teaches us what the difference of a wide SCSI and a narrow SCSI. The video shows all the different ports with all their pins and tells us whether they are male or female. One thing I have definitely learned from this video is what USB stands for and what it actually is. I also learned the difference between USB 1 and USB 2. Video two had a lot to do with computer displays and the different types of screens. In video two I learned the difference between a CRT display and a LCD display, it also talks about what is in both of them. It then goes into the contrast ratio and how the bigger the ratio, the better the video or the display is going to be. I always saw resolutions in my computer but I never knew what they stood for. I now know the standard resolutions and how they work. The video also talks about the video card and if you were building a computer how to know which video card would be worth buying. Video 3 goes into depth about printers and the three most common printers today. It talks about the differences between Dot Matrix, Inkjet, and Laser printers. Since Laser printers are very different from the other two, it went into further depth of the laser printer. The video teaches us multiple ways of how a laser printer can be cleaned. It also tells us......

Video Conferencing

...Ex-MBA 2011-2014 Semester -1 Subject: Technology in Business ------------------------------------------------- VIDEO CONFERENCING – A BOON TO COMPANIES TO REDUCE COSTS, TIME AND SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT Completed By, Shantesh Varik Roll No: 2011G14 INTRODUCTION – Aim and Objective Videoconferencing is a virtual conference like setup using a number of telecommunication technologies which allow two or more locations to interact via two-way video and audio transmissions simultaneously. Videoconferencing is slightly different from videophone calls as it is designed to serve a conference rather than individuals. In a tight economy, with companies spending much less on IT, the tech giants will take growth wherever they can find it. The Wall Street Journal reported recently that Cisco and HP are in a pitched battle for customers for their high-end teleconferencing systems. According to the report, it's "one of the few technologies that has benefited from the downturn, growing 30% from last year as businesses look to reduce travel expenses." Cisco, HP, Nortel, and telepresence-focused players like Teleris have developed impressive, beautiful systems that make you feel like you're in the same room with your colleagues. The catch is that not only will you save money, but you'll also reduce your environmental footprint through reduced travel. These companies are cashing in on the business world's pressing need to cut costs, while also appealing to the desire to get......

...Running head: UNWRAPPING ISLLC STANDARD NUMBER Unwrapping ISLLC Standard Number 1 Myka N. Walker Grand Canyon University: EDA 534 January 11, 2012 The initial collaborative learning community assignment was the unwrapping of ISLLC standard number one. A multiplicity of issues was anticipated in the beginning as this was a group assignment. Typically, group assignments can be challenging due to the varying opinions of the group’s membership. In reality, only two problems arose during the unwrapping process. The first problem surfaced in the beginning of the week. Several members of the group were unsure of how to complete the assignment. A discussion took place and each member contributed thoughts about what the assignment required and how it should be completed. The second problem was the division of work. Each of the ISLLC standards consists of four facets: knowledge, skills, enduring understandings and essential questions. There are five members in the yellow group. One group member quickly assumed the leadership role and created a rotating schedule. The schedule allows each person to tackle a different facet of the standards each week. The schedule also allows each person to compile the assignments and submit them. This was a very equitable way to split the work and all group members agreed to follow the schedule. The unwrapping of the ISLLC standards is a valuable process for any future principal. If the standards are going to be......

Video Conferencing

...Video Conferencing Standards and Terminology Video Conferencing Standards and Terminology. There is an ever increasing number of standards, terminologies and buzz-words used within the video conferencing industry that can make understanding what is both available and compatible a minefield. We have the H.300's, the G.700's, the T.120's and the H.460's, not to mention ISDN, LAN, WAN, ADSL, VPN and POTS all mixed with NTSC, PAL and CIF. To complicate matters more, we also have to deal with the forthcoming media-enabled 3G mobile phone and how this links in with existing systems. This document explains what these standards, terminologies and buzz-words mean, how they relate to the various communications infrastructures of video conferencing and how they relate to each other. It is assumed that the reader has a general knowledge of Video Conferencing systems. However, the following technical papers are available to provide more information: * How do I choose a Video Conferencing system? * H.323 Terminals, Gatekeepers, Gateways & MCUs. * Global Dialling Scheme (GDS) for Schools VideoConferencing. * H.323 Dial Plan and Service Codes used by Gatekeepers etc. * IP Ports and Protocols used by H.323 Devices. * Cost Efficient ISDN Conferencing, including Multipoint Access. * H.221 Framing used in ISDN Conferences.
