Warner Bros. Acquires Sound Facility Digital Cinema New York

Courtesy of Warner Bros. WB Sound, part of Warner Bros. Post Production Services, has acquired midtown Manhattan sound facility Digital Cinema New York. As part of the acquisition, Warner Bros. has purchased the entire building at 426 West 55th St. to add capacity for servicing third-party clients. DCNY creatives will stay on, with the exception of principals Bill Marino and Ken Hahn, who will remain at the helm of their other sound facility, Sync Sound. They remain on friendly terms with WB Sound and will collaborate as WB Sound’s needs as their availability allows. DCNY’s projects will remain at the facility and be completed there under the WB Sound banner. Oscar winner Skip Lievsay (“Gravity”) oversees WB Sound New York, which operated out of several locations in Manhattan starting in 2010. In May 2013, it consolidated its operations in sub-leased space on the second floor of Digital Cinema New York’s West 55th Street location. It re-equipped the facility’s re-recording stage and added eight new sound design/picture editing suites. WB Sound says its first-floor re-recording stage is the largest in New York. The second floor has sound editorial and picture editorial suites, and the third houses a re-recording stage, an ADR stage, and more. In order to bring the former DCNY facility up to the same stand...  

Georgia Community Raises Funds for Medical Equipment to Help 2-Year-Old ...

Paxton McClung Go Fund Me By Kathy Ehrich Dowd @kathyehrichdowd 05/29/2015 AT 03:40 PM EDT A determined mother whose 2-year-old son was refused the medical equipment he needs to help him stand upright is reaching out to her community for assistance – and they are answering the call. Meagan McClung watched helplessly as her infant son Paxton had seizure after seizure after being born with cortical dysplasia, a brain abnormality. "He had no quality of life," McClung told WSB-TV 2 in Atlanta. Paxton underwent two operations to relieve the condition, including a left functional hemispherectomy, which disconnected the entire left half of his brain from the right, she explained on her son's Facebook page, Prayers for Paxton. The surgery was a success – Paxton has had no additional seizures to date – but the side effects of the surgery are significant, including muscle weakness, vision field loss and loss of fine motor skills in his hand. "Within two days of the surgery, he was laughing, which he had never done before," McClung wrote on Facebook. "In the months since, he can eat by mouth, play with toys, roll from side to side, smile and laugh, babble and has so much personality that the joy of it makes me cry." The one thing he still can't do? Walk or stand upright – although a medical stander could significantly help his progress. "We are excited to see what is next for him...  

Software snag silences Science Guy's solar sail spacecraft

Bill Nye the Science Guy’s foray into solar sail propulsion is likely to come crashing back to Earth thanks to a software error. The craft launched on the 20th of May and spent a few days in space relaying information back to ground control before abruptly falling silent. The team in charge of the little vessel has tried repeatedly to reestablish communication, but has had no luck thus far. The LightSail spacecraft was meant to demonstrate whether solar sails could be used for high-speed spacecraft propulsion. Its solar sail is much larger than the Ikaros probe that was launched by Japan in 2010, and it included three CubeSat designs for data gathering and vehicle control.Unfortunately, a simple error in the Linux telemetry software has frozen the flight computer. Every 15 seconds, LightSail transmits a telemetry beacon to Earth and writes the data from that transmission into a file called beacon.csv. The file gets larger over time, and when it hits 32MB, it crashes the flight system. Hard data on which CubeSat design and CPU were inside LightSail doesn’t seem to be readily available, but the first product generations were based on the TI MSP430F1612, a 16-bit CPU — and the fact that the file crashed at 32MB could support that read.According to a blog post from the Planetary Society, the goal since the satellite went dead over the weekend has been to reboot the craft. Unfortunately, the error is “non-deterministic.” In 37 passes (as of Tuesd...  

Why SharePoint 2016 Needs to Address Integration Shortcomings

Ready for Launch: Five Steps for a Successful Go-Live SharePoint integration must be really hard, judging by this new infographic, “Seven Alcoholic Drinks to Imbibe as Your SharePoint Integration Project Fails.” In fairness to Microsoft, I don’t actually know how hard it is or isn’t, since I don’t usually cover integration for individual solutions. But, this is the first time I’ve ever received a list of alcoholic drink recipes to accompany an integration project. Adeptia made this download available ahead of the upcoming SPTechCon SharePoint Developer Days on June 24-26 in Burlingame, California. “Unless your company has standardized on SharePoint portals and ASP.NET applications across the board and NEVER needs to connect to external partners, you are at some point going to need to integrate different types of portals and web applications,” the download begins. “SharePoint integration can be quite the painful journey, so we’re doing a public service and providing you the list of cocktails you can knock back along the way.” Obviously, this is a fun read with what look to be real drink recipes for the Screwdriver (stage 2: Reality sets in) and Mudslide (stage 6: Down for the count). But it also highlights some of the real integration headaches for SharePoint, including: Regular revisions in SharePoint’s API framework. Integration problems with non-Microsoft products. The necessity of writ...

Time Inc. erecting pay walls beginning with Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly to get partial pay wall. The company says it's hoping to "accelerate revenue growth" and find out more about what its web readers want. Readers of Entertainment Weekly are already seeing the pay wall notification. The web sites of other magazines -- People, Time, Money, and Real Simple among them -- will follow Entertainment Weekly's lead later this summer. People who regularly visit the site but don't pay for the print magazine will be prompted to sign up for a paid digital subscription or another paid product. The metered model -- free access up until a certain point when people have to pay -- has been pioneered by The New York Times and adopted by an array of other sites. Time Inc.'s announcement about it on Friday illustrates the media industry's determination to rely less on advertising revenue and more on subscriptions. Some analysts are skeptical that large numbers of web visitors will pay for news and entertainment, but that isn't dissuading publishers like Time Inc. from trying. "Deepening our relationships with digital audiences who value our premium content is of paramount importance to us," Time CEO Joe Ripp said in a statement. Friday's announcement has been expected for some time. Time Inc., like other magazine publishers, has to figure out how to make more money from its millions of web visitors. Time Inc. was owned by Time Warner (TWX), the parent company of this web site, until last year. In a preview of Time Inc.'s plans last week, Poli...

Light Painting with a Giant 2-Foot Ball of Steel Wool

Steel wool is often done by lighting a small ball of steel wool on fire and then swinging it around in a long exposure photo while it burns. But what happens when you take it to the extreme? The folks over at Joby recently decided to see what you get when you burn a giant 2-foot ball of burning steel wool. “One things for sure, it was definitely a bit unwieldy,” the team says. Here’s what swinging the giant ball looks like: Here’s the long-exposure light-painting photo that resulted. It was shot using a Canon 5D Mark III with a 16-35mm and a 20 second exposure: The experiment was part of a new series of videos called JOBY Labs, which will explore different photography and video trends. Here’s the episode (#1) on light painting photography (they use bigger and bigger steel wool balls until the 2 foot ball at the end): ...
