Still a Great Multimedia Player…Microsoft’s Zune

Weighing only 5.6 ounces, 4.4 x 2.4 x 0.6 inches and 30GB of storage space, Microsoft’s Zune is just a little larger than Apple’s iPod – and Rocks. The Zune, available in Black, White and Brown, has several impressive features. It sports a 3-inch screen, four-way controller and a custom version of Microsoft’s Portable Media Center OS. The Zune also boasts two features that Apple hasn’t thought to add, an FM Tuner and Wi-Fi. It also has video playback and photo viewing capability.

Despite the Zune’s impressive features, it does have a few limitations. The Zune is not backward compatible with WMA-DRM9, it only supports WMV videos natively, it won’t play DRM video files and you can’t share video via Wi-Fi.

Analog to Digital: Take Your Home Movies Into The New Millennium With Video Capture!

old-video-camera.jpgWhat is Video Capture?
Vid-e-o  - [vid-ee-oh] – Noun – the visible part of a television transmission.
Cap-ture  – [kap-cher] – Verb – to represent or record in lasting form

With the accelerated growth of technology, video capture has become a part of everyday life. It was in the late 1970s that you could have purchased a Panasonic VCR for the low price of ony $5,000 – New! Today, you can purchase a VCR from several dozen manufactorers for less than $60.00. If you think that was expensive, how about in the early 1960s, Ampex offered the first home video system in the Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalog and it came with a huge camera, TV monitor, special furniture and a 100 pound Ampex VR-1500 video recorder. And you could have owned all of this fablous equipment for only $30,000 – but wait! There’s more! An Ampex engineer would come out to your home and even set it up for you. What a deal!

Now we have DVD players, Digital Video Recorders (DVR), camera cellular phones that record still and video images, home and office survelience cameras and the list continues to grow. But with so many types of video recording devices, how can we save it so that it isn’t damaged, lost or simply fades away?
