MADVR ENVY INTRODUCES AUTO-SUBTITLE MANAGEMENT AND WHY IT MATTERS

madvr_envy_subtitle_004 MADVR ENVY INTRODUCES AUTO-SUBTITLE MANAGEMENT AND WHY IT MATTERS

Subtitle Management with Scope Screens

We recently covered how our non-linear stretch (NLS+) platform makes it easy to fill your entire screen, regardless of its aspect ratio (AR) and the AR of the content. In case you are not familiar, a "scope" screen generally refers to a screen that is wider than the standard HDTV 16:9 aspect ratio.

In today's newsletter, we're changing gears a bit to answer a related question that often comes up about subtitles - specifically how to handle subtitles within the black bars in scope movies.

Understanding the Problem

Subtitles within the black bars of a scope movie are a problem, because when using a scope screen to watch a scope movie (e.g. watching a 2.40 AR movie on a 2.40 screen), the projector is usually zoomed so that the movie fills the entire screen, like this:

Natural Voice Control Of Your Smart Home

Josh.ai Gives You Hands-Free Home Automation with Simple Commands and Privacy Protection

The concept of non-humans or machines using the human voice has a long history in mythology and has been a central technology for futurists and science fiction writers. Josh.ai brings fantasy to reality with natural language processing creating the ultimate home automation voice control. 

Today’s so-called smart speakers are nearly ubiquitous, distributed mass market novelties with the pretense of including rudimentary smart home functions. However, despite using modern chips and well-crafted language algorithms, they still suffer from poor recognition. They are also tracking data that is highly personal in nature, essentially “selling” your personal habits to serve THEIR best interests. The opposite of private. Josh.ai is entirely private and changes the game in YOUR best interest.

The Josh.ai system was created to be different and more comprehensive from the start. Are you curious about the possibilities for your Miami, FL smart home? Continue reading below to learn more.

There are many reasons why people set up a home music studio in Naples, FL. While you may not have access to all the gear a highly outfitted professional studio provides, you can still enjoy unlimited studio time while ensuring as many takes as you need to get it right.

CREATE A HOME RECORDING STUDIO WITH LEGENDARY SOUND AND MODERN FLAIR

FRACON_SeptemberBlog2_HomeRecordingStudioDesign_PalmBeach-FL_image

FRANGIONI MEDIA HOME RECORDING STUDIO DESIGN BRINGS A HIGHER STANDARD TO YOUR CREATIVE OUTPUT.

Finding the right sound for your song, podcast production, or composition is an artist's lifelong pursuit. Having the privilege of walking down the hall from your bedroom and working on technique or the freedom to work according to YOUR schedule is a creativity and productivity booster.

David Frangioni built what is considered the first “modern home digital studio” in the 80’s triggering a revolution to home recording that combines the right equipment and installation while providing final products that rival the biggest commercial studios. As such, your home recording studio design should be more than a collection of gear in the room. Regardless of your talent or experience, your output will be sub-par without proper acoustics, signal flow, and other ways to isolate the room from the outside world.

If you are intrigued by the possibilities of working with Frangioni Media, a leader in building world-class studios both locally in Palm Beach and globally, continue reading below.

Transforming Your Home Theater System Through Sound

transforming-your-home-theater-system-through-sound

Creating an Experience Through Sound in Your Luxury Home Theater

When we first speak with clients about their dedicated, custom-designed home theater systems in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and throughout the world, the first topic on most people's minds is the visual component. After all, you enter a theater, and the first thing you see is a large screen that fills up the room. They want the experience of immersing themselves in the visuals, with a keen interest in how the theater looks when it’s not in use and the lights are on.

But, if you think about it, what makes the experience so memorable? Without the sound of the waves lapping onto the shore or the leaves rustling in the wind, the pictures can't come to life. As George Lucas said, "The sound and music are 50% of the entertainment in a movie.”

That’s why we’re taking a moment to discuss sound and the tremendous difference that a high quality sound system can make in your luxury home theater.
