PowerPoint is an incredibly useful tool for giving presentations. With the click of a button, you can control how fast or slow you want the slides to progress, and when other extras like music or animation come in. 

However, if it is not your intention to give your presentation live and in person, this fact can be more of a hindrance than a help. If you intended, for example, to email it to your coworkers, or to post it online, it might be more helpful to simply have your PowerPoint be a video that people can press play on and simply sit back and watch.

Luckily, this is something that the Microsoft Office team has already thought of, and they make it just as easy to save your PowerPoint as a video as

Cinemark Gives Tour of Reopened Movie Theaters Under New Safety Guidelines (Video)

john rambo

Cinemark Theaters CEO Mark Zoradi appeared in a video Wednesday that provides patrons with a detailed look at what movie theaters will look like when they reopen their doors under new safety guidelines.

Cinemark is doing a phased reopening some of its theaters in Texas by Friday but will be targeting the reopening of more than 300 theaters by mid-July. And the new video detailing how the chain says they’re going above and beyond comes after an earnings call at the start of the month in which Zoradi laid out the guidelines but said that theater-goers will be encouraged, but not required, to wear face masks.

“We’ve really gone the extra mile to make this a healthy and safe environment for our guests,” Zoradi also added in an interview with “Today” on Wednesday.

How to stage a good video meeting? Put on a show

john rambo

T.J. Leonard likes to kick off every Monday morning with an all-hands meeting, to keep his 100-plus employees of the Storyblocks video production assistance company up to date on the latest. 

And even when everyone’s working at home, the show must go on. 

Keeping people focused on in-person meetings is hard enough. How does the CEO do it when distractions at home can include easy texting, e-mail checking, Amazon shopping and the like? 

By putting on a production.  

He has an MC. He shows video clips. He has team members do skits.

“If I stood in front of the company and delivered a 15 to 30-minute monologue about our vision, we’d have a lot of people tuning out,” he says. “The type of content you can take on is more ambitious than what would you do in person.”

The new meetings require more preparation than in

Closed Captioning of Internet Video Programming

john rambo

Closed captioning is the visual display of the audio portion of video programming. Captioning provides access to individuals who are deaf or have hearing loss and is often used in places where it is difficult to hear a TV program, such as restaurants and exercise facilities. FCC rules require captioned programs shown on TV to be captioned when re-shown on the Internet.

Video programming rules

  • The Internet closed captioning rules only apply if the video programming was shown on TV in the U.S. with captions.
  • “Full-length video programming” is video programming that is shown on TV and is distributed to end users, substantially in its entirety, through the Internet. 
  • “Video clips” are excerpts of full-length video programming that are posted online.  The rules require video programming distributors that show programming on TV to post captioned clips of their programming on their own websites or applications (“apps”).  At this time, the

Understanding Professional and Home Audio Equipment

Home audio equipment upgrades your home-listening experience, while professional varieties are for recording live sounds and mixing audio tracks. These include studio-grade equipment used in broadcast radio and TV studios as well as live concerts, DJ sessions, and music studios. Other pro gear includes sound editing software and computers.

What Is a MIDI Keyboard?

This electronic keyboard looks like a piano. In addition to its “piano keys,” this instrument may also have programmable buttons, sliders, and knobs. MIDI keyboards are essential computer audio control surfaces used for audio production. They connect to digital audio workstations (DAWs) via USB, and work with installed sound production software. These keyboard controllers may also have five-pin MIDI connectors to hook up to sound modules, stage/digital pianos, and synthesizers capable of processing MIDI signals.

Types of MIDI Keyboards

Manufacturers and musicians categorize MIDI keyboards by size and keyboard action.
