Up Front Sunday Morning:

It is definitely Fall here in Eugene. The trees seemingly turned color over night and change is in the air.

This newsletter is also changing. We will be including more interviews and short articles written by people currently working in multimedia production. These features will focus on first hand production experiences, sharing design ideas, and other topics that will enrich the reader's work day.

We are also changing our look and hope readers will find it inviting.Our new banner and topic icons were designed by Gabriel Guzman of Clandestino Productions.

Proscenia has initiated a that we trust will facilitate communication between readers. Subscribe now and begin to exchange ideas with others interested in media production and career opportunities.

And finally, we have a new address:. So contact us with your comments, ideas, production tips, new links, and if you feel so inclinded, an idea for an article you would like to write.

Frequent readers will recall my passion for short films. There was a time when a short film was about 10 minutes in length. All of that is changing.

Now a whole new generation of micromovies is being produced with many just seconds in length. The World's Smallest Film Festival recently announced the winners of the first competition for digital video content designed for cell phones, PDAs, and other mobile devices.

The movies are usually viewed on the 160 x 120 pixels cell phone screen. Movie files rarely exceed 5 MB.

Visit the World's Smallest Film Festival site and take a "few seconds" to view the award winning films. Also learn about how you can enter this unique competition.

If you like movies check out the Internet Moving Image Archive.This digital collection is free and open for everyone to use. The goal is to provide easy access to a rich and fascinating core collection of archival films. By providing near-unrestricted access to these films, Internet Moving Image Archive hopes to encourage widespread use of moving images in new contexts by people who might not have used them before. The collection contains hundreds of digitized movies donated to the Internet Archive. They are available for viewing at no cost and with few restrictions. It helps to have DSL or cable when accessing this collection.

If you're interested in a career in animation check out How to Get a Job in Computer Animation by Ed Harris, now available in the bookstores. An informative review of the book, the table of contents, and a sample chapter are available online.

Here are four online publications to explore on a chilly morning. Digital Producer is an online magazine rich in content including tutorials,events, news, shopping, and other material of interest to media developers. AV Video Multimedia Producer also includes news, features, and resources. Digital Media FX offers daily effects and animation news, features, movie trailers, and interviews. It is updated every day. Finally, Animation Artist provides news, features, tutorials, a screening room and special topics of interest to animators.

Are you looking for a digital camera? May I recommend The Digital Camera Resource Page if you need well written technical reviews of a product. I recently made a decision to buy a camera based upon the information this resource provided.

DISCUSSION: Finding Sounds on the Internet

Sometimes we need reference effects and music to serve as placeholders in the design of a soundtrack for a web page or multimedia product. Unless one has immediate access to a licensed audio library the testing of aural ideas is difficult.

What do you do if you need the sound of car brakes? Or, a few seconds of a growling angry dog?

Downloading sounds from the Internet is one option to consider. But before proceeding, please note that there are very few "free" sounds on the web and the use is restricted by copyrighted. You must read and follow the rules for each site you visit.

If you are designing a prototype by which to test out an idea, you may be able to use a sound found on the web as a "placeholder". This means that you will replace that piece of music or sound effect with material for which you have obtained permission to use or paid a licensing fee.

The University of Washington has prepared Guidelines for Sound File Use.It is a very informative document which outlines legal issues surrounding the use of copyrighted audio material - specifically for web page use.

The University offers two other online documents of value. Finding Sounds for Use on the Web discusses approaches to searching for sound files. Audio Links provides links to online audio selections, links to pages that show you how to add sound to your Web page or project, and resources for finding online audio material.

FindSounds is a searchable online index that lets you explore the entire Web for hundreds of sounds you define by category such as nature, people, animals, etc.Some of the visited sites provide copyright fee sound files while many are to be downloaded with permission or payment depending how the material will be used.

Proscenia has found that purchasing a sound for a project can be facilitated using the Internet. We've used Sound Dogs, which is an online library offering over 142,000 files for immediate download and purchase. Sound files are available in six different file formats. Every sound can be previewed and when ready you add it to your "cart" for check out. Sounds are priced individually. The cost determined by length and sound quality.

Some sites indicate they have "Royalty Free" sounds.An example is the Music Bakery that provides buy out rights to the music with no further payment. In some instances Royalty Free means that you can use the music or sounds without payment.

Some sounds are in the "Public Domain". These have either lost their copyright protection by age or that they have been made public by the author and are available on the web free of charge. Other sites have collected public domain sounds and built for fee databases.This is possible under the current copyright laws. Again, read the fine print at each site visited.


Flash Kit Sound Effects. A huge archive of royalty free effects for download and use in your multimedia projects.

Partners in Rhyme is a source of royalty free music loops and sound effects available for use in your multimedia project.The site provides information on how you can use the sound files they provide.

Videomaker: Free Sound Effects provides a list of free sound effects for use in your productions.

APPLE iTUNES DOES WINDOWS Apple is expanding its popular iTunes music download service into Windows territory, promising a wider selection of songs and some new features to maintain its lead in an increasingly competitive market. The launch was accompanied by the usual Apple glitz -- CEO Steve Jobs chatted via remote link-up with U2 lead man Bono and the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger in a prelude to a live performance by singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan. "It's like the pope of software meeting up with the Dali Lama of integration," gushed Bono -- referring to the iTunes software and Apple's integrated online music store. Analysts say that iTunes faces stiff competition in the Windows space, but that its flexibility to download tunes onto multiple devices gives it an edge. "There's going to be a lot of jockeying for position in the next 12 months," says a Forrester Research analyst. "But I think iTunes is a real winner because it has the portable player, the jukebox and the store all together." (Reuters 16 Oct 2003)|technology|10-16-2003::17:32|reuters.html

THE JOY OF GOOD DESIGN Design guru Don Norman says the way a device looks, feels and gives pleasure is just as important as how it works, and that good design can make up for some -- though not all -- shortcomings. "How attractive something is will mean people will overlook some of the bad functionality, but not completely." His new book, "Emotional Design: Why We Love (or Hate) Everyday Things," -- due out in 2004 -- focuses on the way design works at different levels of brain perception. "The visceral level is the low biological level and that's where beauty comes in and appearances matter. On the surface something looks attractive and feels good. That is very important and that makes the brain function differently," says Norman. The behavioral level, which controls muscles, perception and language, perceives an object's usability and how it feels. But Norman says the most important aspect of design is its ability to invoke the deeper level of reflection, the level that dictates how we feel about things. "That is where having a good brand name matters. Having a good brand name has to be earned because they stand for trust." Good emotional design must incorporate all three levels, and Norman cites Apple and Sony as two companies that have managed to do that well. (BBC News 14 Oct 2003)

STILL-COMING ATTRACTIONS: DIGITAL MOVIE PROJECTION SYSTEMS Movie-quality digital projectors are installed in fewer than 80 movie houses in the U.S. (and fewer than 200 in the rest of the world), in spite of their vastly superior quality. But the movie house operators believe that the cost-benefit analysis favors the studios (which could save a couple of million dollars on each movie they release if they could send it to theaters as digital files rather than shipping film copies), and rather than wait for the standoff to be resolved between studios and exhibitors, the Regal Entertainment Group has installed a less-expensive type of digital projector in 306 of its 561 cinemas. The systems, which project an image quality comparable to high-definition television (though not fully equivalent to 35-millimeter film) are being used for packages of advertisements before feature films or when renting out the theaters for corporate videoconferences or special remote transmissions of concerts and other live entertainment. A Regal CineMedia unit executive says, "We're making money on our ad sales, and we've built our digital infrastructure. Once digital feature film standards are set, we only have to upgrade our projectors to be ready." (New York Times 13 Oct 2003)

A HANDSET FOR THE FUTURE A number of South Korean telecoms, credit card companies, and banks have developed systems that let Koreans pay for groceries, gasoline and vending machine products by simply pressing a "hot key" button on their cell phone, which beams the information to complete the transaction. One expert says, "Korea is far ahead in the use of such technology, and it probably leads the world, not just Asia." Cho Eun-sang of Harex Infotech explains: "We are conditioned to think that a credit card is a plastic rectangle. But it is actually the data on the strip at the back, and data can be stored anywhere." Transmissions are encrypted and secure, and subscribers who lose their phones can get them disabled within seconds by informing the credit-card company. Lee Jong-hyun of SK Telecom predicts: "In the future you only will have to carry one handset. It will be your window to the world." (AP/San Jose Mercury News 12 Oct 2003)|

MAXTOR SERVES UP PERPENDICULAR RECORDING ON A PLATTER Disk-driver maker Maxtor has demonstrated a cost-effective method of manufacturing platters designed for perpendicular recording, which it says will more than double the amount of data that can be crammed onto a typical disk. Perpendicular recording arranges magnetic charges, which hold the data, vertically on the platter, as opposed the horizontal arrangement typical in today's longitudinal recording methods. The perpendicular technology has been available for decades, but has yet to come into broad use. Maxtor believes that its new technology could boost the popularity of perpendicular recording as the rate of data density growth has slowed in longitudinal recording, due in part to technical challenges.

INTEL'S NEXT-GENERATION PHONES To take advantage of the photography and multimedia functions being built into new cell phones, Intel has developed the StrataFlash Wireless memory system -- a new flash memory system that packs all memory functions into three or more stacked chips. An Intel executive explains, "This new device allows a cell phone manufacturer in the same very small footprint to be able to store up to an hour of full motion video. As phones get more and more capable and they can do all these fancy things, end users don't want them to get any larger. For that matter, they don't want them to get any more expensive, which is why having a specialized chip for low-cost data storage is important." Industry analyst Betsy Van Hees says, "This is a big move for them, and it's going to allow them to proliferate their technology throughout mobile handsets and have a greater share in handsets than they have today." (AP/USA Today 13 Oct 2003)

'BIG MAC' MAY SNAG NO. 2 SUPERCOMPUTER SPOT The new "Big Mac" supercomputer housed at Virginia Tech may earn the distinction of being the second most powerful supercomputer on the planet, following Japan's gargantuan Earth Simulator. The Big Mac, which is actually 1,100 dual-processor Power Mac G5s strung together -- boasts a theoretical peak speed of 17.6 teraflops, although its final score on the Linpack Benchmark won't be officially announced until Nov. 17. "They're getting 80% of the theoretical peak," says Jack Dongarra, one of the compilers of the Top 500 Supercomputer Sites. "If it holds, and it's unclear if it will, it has the potential to be the world's second most powerful machine." The current No. 2 machine --the ASCI Q, built by Hewlett-Packard for the Los Alamos National Laboratory -- is based on 8,000Alpha processors and operates at 13.8 teraflops. The Big Mac is one of the few supercomputers in the world to be built entirely from off-the-shelf components and cost only $5.2 million. By comparison, the Earth Simulator, which is composed of more than 5,000 processors operating at 35.6teraflops, cost $350 million. ( 15 Oct 2003),1282,60821,00.html

CHINA COULD SURPASS U.S. IN PC MARKET BY 2010 Intel Asia-Pacific chief John Antone predicts that the fast-growing China market could outpace the U.S. in PC sales by 2010. China sales are expected to rise to 13 million PCs this year, topping Japan's 12.7 units, and vaulting into second place behind the U.S., which is expected to come in at about 50 million units. Including Japan, Asia now accounts for 51% of Intel's sales and that percentage is increasing. "It's now a little bit above the midpoint and will probably continue to grow. As that percentage goes up, sequential increases will likely slow down because it's gotten to be such a big part of our revenue. Emerging-market growth -- the biggest of which is China -- relative to mature markets is going to continue to be faster," says Antone. (Reuters/CNet 15 Oct 2003)
