Video Conferencing and The Enhancing Features of Cameras

 Its a wonderful experience when we can participate in a conferencing sitting at our   own desk.  The amazing technological development of Video conferencing helps us to see, converse and take decisions just by a click.  Conferencing using Video Conferencing technology  is much focused on  visualizing people.  It is mainly intended to look at the person and catch the body language and have a clear idea of the conversation which  helps in taking right decisions.  When it comes to visualizing having a clear picture quality plays a prominent role. Bad quality cameras produce clumsy and blurred pictures  with poor quality which makes conferencing confusing and ends up with lot of distraction.   Thanks to the revolutionary  developments in the technology which provides us with  HD video cameras, CCTV cameras and  Web cams which can be the part of important Video Conferencing Session. 
High Definition Video Cameras 
Using High Definition Video Cameras enhances the picture quality as the picture is displayed in 720p /1080p, The main idea being to present a better picture quality.  When a Standard Definition screens are used to visualize the video of High definition the result many not be felt as the picture is squeezed to fit into the Standard definition. A picture in a Standard definition uses 480 pixels where as a High Definition uses 720 to 1080 pixels on the screen in turn presenting a better quality picture.  Using   High Definition cameras is always preferred as the conferences held are at most important and clarity of the picture as we can see the facial expressions of the participant whether he is angry, frowning or whether he is attentive or not while in the conference.  
PTZ cameras:  

 The usage of PTZ cameras in Video conferencing improves the functionality as it  can be moved by a  remote control or other interface(hardware or software), With the PAN(left to right) movement we can view the participants from left to right, by using the  Tilt( up and down) we can view up and down and the Video can also be Zoomed in and out by using Zoom option.  We can as well use the feature to pre program to follow specific patterns to continuously monitor an area.  These functionalities of the PTZ camera gives the organizing committee to have a closer and broader view of the conferencing.  These cameras have automatic day and night function if the conference starts in the evening and extends to the evening   of night the quality of the video is automatically adjusted.  If the lighting is low due to any of the reasons there is nothing to worry as there cameras provide good color images in low light conditions and they produce good sharp black and white images in extremely poor lighting conditions 

The need for video conferencing and collaboration is increasing, as face to face meetings are possible with the colleagues whether we share the same office building or not.  Companies look to cut travel costs and ensure going Green in their level of communication and surveillance.  Improvements in the Video and picture quality and usage of highly technical video conferencing PTZ cameras has made Video conferencing a eventuality.

Why is Video Conferencing necessary in developing Countries ?

                                                                                                  Video conferencing Software
Now when we talk about Video Conferencing the countries which can be benefited will be the developing nations around the world. We already are seeing the results of implementing Video Conferencing in media, politics and business firms in all the major urban areas making amazing results.
In the developing nations we see that the metro cities where the literacy rate is very high people get all the services they wanted easily. But in the rural areas it is not the same. As we can find handful of people who can educate them in any new technologies. Bringing about awareness in villages is important as their should be uniformity in development in all the fields in rural and urban areas.The advancement of the satellite Television has made revolutionary change in the people and proved that visualization has broader effect in bringing about awareness in people and educating them. By using Video conferencing as a tool drastic developmental change can be expected from rural areas.
Role of the Government - Video Conferencing is no more a product of luxury. Strong belief that development through implementation of Video Conferencing certain is required. If the Government with the idea of Video Conferencing can provide all the facilities of Hospitals, Educational institutions and Sophisticated training sessions available at Metro cities at the village level, why not ? When a village is connected with an expert team of people available from cities development at a drastic level can be expected. The Government’s role in providing required infrastructure ,motivating and compelling major organizations to connect with the villages is most expected and required.

Political leaders in direct interaction with Village people:
Soon after the elections there are many expectations of the people from the selected leaders. But how many requests do the leaders get ? Frequent interaction with the people is necessary to know what are the problems at hand and need solutions immediately. The leaders become busy with traveling and it is not a small job to identify the problems at the grass root level. Political leaders through Video Conferencing can connect to the villages in their constituencies, save time and solve the problems of the people. Through Video Conferencing monitoring the number of villages also becomes very easy as they need not literally spend time moving from one place to the other. It is being with the people with out being there.
Tie up of School Education with Rural Schools.
How is the idea that the village children get interaction with a well established school teachers at the metro cities or from other countries ? How is the idea that the teaching staff get the ideas of teaching, new methodologies and activity based learning from an international school ? We see now and then on net help a child donate a rupee, help a girl child. Instead of giving a rupee we all can spend time from our organization teaching the children through Video conferencing. If every sophisticated school connecting to a village school is made mandatory, any teacher from the school is happy to teach free for weekly one hour with out going there. Now we can have equal no of good schools at the metros with same number of good schools at the village level. Will their be any backwardness.
Tie up of with Super Speciality Hospitals
If all the hi-tech healthcare institutes and super speciality hospitals adopt one village hospital and provide necessary training to the staff, consultation through Video Conferencing tele medicine becomes a reality. Many of the diseases can be diagnosed right in the beginning. Training of the Village Doctors and Nurses is very easy as they don’t need to travel to any other place. The number of Doctors and Nurses trained , the number of patients benefited through Video conferencing will be amazing. People who cannot afford to go to a Super speciality hospital and people who cannot move because of their illness can see their specialized Doctors and get advices being at their village.
Bringing Judiciary to the doorstep

Even for a small advice or a formality the people in the villages need to go far of places to know the how to do procedures. The Judges if interacted through Video Conferencing to the Village level we will find a solution to the piling of files in the district Courts. Many problems solved at the beginning itself. If the Lawyers and Judges are connected to the villages and interact through Video Conferencing we can say that there is Judiciary available at every village.

Making resources like bandwidth at remote places will become the driving force of Video conferencing. Only then organizations can come forward to connect to rural places and employees who are willing to make their contributions will be happy to spend time from their organizations to provide services instead of money which is more valuable and rewarding to a growing nation.

Then every one will be proud to say that ' I provide service to my Nation, as my organization has adopted a village by connecting through Video Conferencing.'

Dennis Ritchie dies at the age of 70

                                                                                                  Video conferencing Software
By Tim Kenneally

The world has lost another computer pioneer. Dennis Ritchie, the computer scientist who invented the C programming language and co-developed the Unix operating system, has died at the age of 70.

"Ritchie was under the radar. His name was not a household name at all, but ... if you had a microscope and could look in a computer, you'd see his work everywhere inside."

Born in Bronxville, NY, Ritchie began working at Bell Labs — where his father was a scientist — in 1967, earning his Ph.D. from Harvard the following year. He retired from Bell in 2007.

In this tutorial, I will show you how to easily turn your WordPress blog from the default NoFollow to a DoFollow blog without the need of a plugin. Why not turn your blog into a DoFollow blog and get more visitors, more traffic and eventualy more recognition in the Online community. Probably you already have seen some blogs displaying the DoFollow image and you wonder how it is done and what it really means. Read my next tutorial for a closer look at DoFollow versus NoFollow.

What are NoFollow and DoFollow?

DoFollow is a term that does not really exist. It is a slang term given to Websites that are not using nofollow. nofollow is a value that can be assigned to the rel attribute of the HTML anchor tag to instruct some search engines not to pass on any influence to an outbound link. The nofollow value was intended to stop comment spam in blogs. Commenting is recognized as a good way to get one way backlinks. But it has been abused and thus the creation of the nofollow value back in 2005.

You might already know that NoFollow blogs do not carry any PR value to other Websites through commenting. If your blog is DoFollow then comments made by your users get Link juice, meaning that your blog passes on the PR value to the commenter.

Steve jobs 1955-2011 the legendary CEO of APPLE

By Erik Sherman | October 6, 2011
Here’s a look at some of the best moves Jobs ever made — decisions that weren’t just sound, but ground-breaking. Choices that most of the smart business set wouldn’t have taken. That’s what makes them something more than savvy. It makes them great.

steve jobs big lesson - stay hungry stay foolish
By Larry Dignan | October 5, 2011, 6:17pm PDT

Steve Jobs has passed away and what you’ll find on these pages and many Web pages like them are planned storylines about the life Apple’s co-founder.

That’s life in the news business. You plan ahead. Now that we’re posting stories, video packages and other pieces of content it all just feels off. Like way off.

Why? You don’t quite know what your reaction will be until the moment actually comes. We all knew Jobs’ day would come. We also knew it would come soon. That’s why the thoughts that emerged when Jobs stepped down as CEO came out like obits. Few of use wanted to totally acknowledge it, but Jobs’ fate was obvious when he stepped down as CEO.

Those CEO stories primarily focused on the business side of Jobs. His first tour at Apple. The Next diversion. Pixar. And then the rebirth at Apple, which appears to be set up for a nice post Jobs run. Frankly, setting Apple up to thrive beyond his tenure may turn out to be Jobs’ greatest business accomplishment.

When Jobs stepped down as CEO I chose to look at his ride through the lens of Apple products. It’s was a natural path to take. Now that Jobs has passed it isn’t.

Whether you love or hate Apple—or fall somewhere in between—it’s hard not to acknowledge that Jobs was a brilliant man. He’s also a man that we don’t really know a lot about. But he’s also a man that changed a lot of lives.

Here’s what stuck out about Jobs for me:

Stubborn as hell.
Great leader.
An artist eye for design with an engineer’s brain.
Amazing legacy.
“Stay hungry, stay foolish.”

I’d argue that Jobs is my generation’s Walt Disney. He entertained. He delighted. And he built something enduring. Jobs was a disruptive force. Given the Disney comparison, it’s a bit ironic that Jobs wound up being Disney’s largest shareholder via the Pixar acquisition.

More importantly, Jobs loved what he did. And pursued that love with a passion. In a 2005 Stanford commencement speech, Jobs said:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

For now, Jobs’ passing is garnering a bevy of statements—mostly canned like a lot of the stories tonight. But all you really need to know about Jobs and what he left behind can be found in his Stanford commencement speech from 2005 (full text). As you ponder Jobs it’s worth adapting some of these life lessons for your days ahead.

CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) - In dark suit and bowtie, he is a computing-era carnival barker - eyebrows bouncing, hands gesturing, smile seductive and coy and a bit annoying. It's as if he's on his first date with an entire generation of consumers. And, in a way, he is.

6 Lessons We Could Learn from Steve Jobs

6 Lessons We Could Learn from Steve Jobs

By Margaret Heffernan | October 6, 2011

Tracking the achievements of Steve Jobs isn’t a difficult thing to do. They’re big, public and - especially in technology - remarkably long lasting. More tricky but, I think, more interesting, is eliciting from those achievements the lessons we could learn from his successes if we tried.

1. Style is Content

From the outset, Jobs and Apple believed in style: in fonts, in graphics, in industrial design and in marketing. It’s easy to under-estimate how eccentric this was at the time - and how eccentric it remains today. While most organizations believe that style is the exclusive purview of marketing, few achieve it even there. Most hardware and software remains remarkably clunky, ugly or simply derivative. (The Kindle is hideous; the Fire a pale imitation.) When I first started working in technology 15 years ago, style was dismissed as frivolous and that’s the status it still holds in most companies today. Anyone who imagines that Apple’s success derives entirely from what’s inside the box (and there are more than a few) has missed a very obvious point.

Conventional wisdom divides thinking into the left brain and the right brain. The left is all systematic, rational, linear while the right is more emotional and creative. What Jobs demonstrated was that success lies not in emphasizing one over the other but in bringing them together. The physical representation of this was clear when he took over Pixar. The new campus planned 3 separate buildings: for creatives, for producers and for business people. He insisted that they be brought under one roof, with toilets at the center - because that’s where everyone meets and talks.

2. Patience Beats Speed

For all that Apple is known for fast product development, the truth is that Jobs was very good at waiting. After his return to Apple in 1997, when the company teetered on the brink of bankruptcy, he did what any smart CEO would do: slashed product lines (15 desktop models to 1) cut software and hardware engineers, eliminated peripherals, reduced inventory and retailers and moved most manufacturing offshore. There is nothing brilliant about this; it’s textbook stuff. But asked in 1998, by Richard Rummelt, what he was going to do next, in order to move Apple beyond its fragile niche position, Jobs had a gutsy answer: “I am going to wait for the next big thing.”

Wait? In a technology business? That took courage. Of course, once he’d figured out what the next big thing was, Jobs was methodical and patient - again - in putting in place everything he’d need to take advantage of the seismic shift in the environment when the U.S. market moved to broadband.

It’s also worth remembering that, during the three years he did this, he was remorselessly hammered by industry analysts not one of whom understood what he was up to.

3. Drama Trumps Romance

Jobs’s product launches were famed for their drama. But one thing they didn’t offer was romance. The products did what they said they’d do. Marketing commentary around them didn’t promise fantasies, illusions or daydreams. Apple promoted its products but didn’t hype them. This may seem a lackluster quality but it built trust. Apple said its products were easy to use not because (like many of its competitors) it hoped that was true, or because it was true for the PhD engineers who’d invented them, but because it was true. It seems peculiar to celebrate a company for truth in advertising but that’s one reason why Apple customers, once smitten, stayed loyal.

4. Nothing Beats a Good Mistake

Jobs’s career isn’t without its mis-steps. Losing control of Apple was the biggest and most obvious but there were plenty of minor slip ups along the way. The suicides at the Foxconn plant that manufactures iPhones was just one of these. But Jobs didn’t try to deny that they had taken place or that they mattered. He was swift to point out that Apple’s scrutiny of its suppliers was more rigorous than most - but he still moved quickly to understand what was going on and try to find remedies.

Every company makes mistakes. But, treated right, they can be treasure troves of learning. Moreover, people loved Jobs not because he didn’t make mistakes - but because he learned from them.

5. Technology Isn’t All About Youth

In the age of fast companies, built not to last, Apple offered ample proof that you can be innovative and cool after the age of 25. Experience, know how and skills counted for something. While the products were cool, they weren’t all built by pre-adolescents oblivious to the constraints and needs of normal human beings. That Jobs continued to be as innovative in his 50s as he had been in his 20s is something most companies should take time to consider at length.

6. Business Doesn’t Have to Be Bad

Earlier this week I was teaching a class of new MBA students. A strikingly international group, they came from Thailand, India, Korea, Colombia, Russia, Canada, Taiwan, China and the U.S. I asked them who their heroes were. As usual, the list included their parents, various heads of state and Nelson Mandela. But topping the list - regardless of age or nationality - was Steve Jobs. More than anyone else alive, he was the person who inspired their love of business and their desire to try their hands at it.

In an age when the streets are full of anger and violence at the havoc wreaked by one part of the business world, that there is such an inspirational figure as Jobs is important. We need smart men and women, young and old, to have high ambitions for the world of work, someone who believed passionately and articulated brilliantly how much good business can achieve. Now that Jobs is gone, who can fail to be concerned that no one else adequately represents his rich synthesis of intellect, imagination and passion?

The lessons we could learn from Steve Jobs aren’t all that remarkable. Many of them contain wisdom that we already know — we just don’t apply it. Why not? Is it that we lack courage? Or is it that we find it hard to believe that tenets so simple can prove so effective? Surely that’s the moral of the Apple story: there is genius in simplicity. But simple is hard.
