How to optimize your video for the webWritten by Jakob Jelling
Optimizing your video or movie in order it can be distributed and played on web implies many aspects. This action, often known as streaming video, must be achieved carefully in order not to loose an important amount of video quality on process. Due to great amount of data a video or movie contains and big size it file would have, transferring it or playing it over web with its original quality might be not easy sometimes.
The PC or equipment person who will watch your movie has will be one of main factors you should consider at time of sending your video to him or letting him download it. Depending on equipment, video a person plays over web will be played with good quality, bad quality or it might not be played at all.
To start with, a person should have a good Internet connection based on cable or DSL in order to be able to play or watch your movie over web. If they do not have high speed connection, accessing and watching your movie would be almost impossible, since in case they were able to play it, it would be of very low quality and probably would go blank sometimes.
Manufacturing Outsourcing: Microsoft Great Plains implementation, customization & reporting – overview for consultantWritten by Andrew Karasev
Manufacturing in USA is far away down from mid 20th century top of hill or its golden time. However we are in very competitive business environment and we have to do what market tends us to do. Nowadays competitive offshore manufacturing labor cost outweighs custom clearance fees and forces us to have not full-size manufacturing, but rather final assembly facilities here in US distribution centers, such as Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles. We’d like to give you successful implementation/downsizing/outsourcing scenario of mid-size machinery manufacturer. •Downsizing need. US recession of 2000-2004 decreased monthly crane trucks order from 200 per month to 50. Company laid off manufacturing and assembly workers. ERP system had full-featured manufacturing (Kewill manufacturing) and annual maintenance fee to Kewill was about k$50 plus company had more employees in accounting department to enter manufacturing related data than it had manufacturing workers Kewill was serving just manufacturing automation, Great Plains Dynamics on Pervasive SQL 2000 was in place of General Ledger (GL), Sales Order Processing and Account Payables module (AP) •Switch to light Manufacturing. Great Plains Dynamics Bill of Materials (currently Microsoft Great Plains Bill of Materials) can serve light manufacturing and cost of ownership is relatively low – you pay 16% annual maintenance fee and this includes free new version and discounted Great Plains technical support from Microsoft Business Solutions directly. Client did purchase Great Plains Inventory Control module, Purchase Order Processing with PO Generator to replenish spare parts automatically. Great Plains Customization partner developed light Great Plains Dexterity customization to automatically build several blocks in Bill of Materials on SOP Sales Order allocation.
