If you have had your video tapes, cine film, photos, etc digitised then you can easily watch them on any modern smart TV. Smart TVs come with lots of wired sockets on the back, and the easiest to use is the USB socket. You can plug a USB memory stick into the back of your TV and then view your media on TV – view photos, watch videos on your TV, simply by using your remote control.
This video explains how to connect things to a smart TV and the first part explains the USB connection and shows how to watch your media on TV.
On 1st Oct 2019 Personal Media Solutions will be 10 years old. I started this business with just an idea that many families have lots of non digital personal media (cine film, video tapes, photos, slides, negatives etc).
This media is often stored in a cupboard or worse in the loft or garage. It is therefore very rarely shared, viewed and enjoyed.
Also this media is often degrading or even becoming unplayable.
After 10 years and 1000s of customers I have been staggered by the amount and variety of precious family media that I have been able to digitise.
It has been a pleasure to get feedback and hear the reactions from so many satisfied customers as they relive their memories.
I would like to thank all of my customers and everyone who has helped me to making this successful and enjoyable business.
“You don’t know what you got till it’s gone.” These are the truthful lyrics that we enjoy singing along to for the rhythm, but when’s the last time you actually stopped to think what the lyrics are saying? In the moment, we tend to take things for granted. Sometimes we fail to look around, embrace the moment and be grateful for what we have. We get so caught up in the chaos of what’s next, where we’re going, and even what happened yesterday. What we should really be doing is living in the now. Because we only get that ‘now’ once.
Some of the most valuable, precious moments we experience can slip right through our hands and not be appreciated to the fullest, until the moment is gone and becomes a recollection.
But how do you view your memories? If you are like most people, the memories may be in your brain somewhere, but a visual or audio prompt is what is needed to recall those precious memories and share and enjoy them.
Personal Media Solutions can help you share, recall and enjoy your precious family memories.
Both the idea and physical examples of 8K TVs have been around for more than a couple years so far. Even when the first mass market 4K televisions started to pick up some serious traction, major brands like Sony and others soon started showcasing concept models with stunning 8K resolution, offering 4 times the pixels of their 4K UHD cousins.
Now, in 2019, these televisions have gone from a strictly conceptual existence to actual mass market availability like never before. This was the case even in 2018 as well, as we saw from Samsung at IFA last year but when CES 2019 rolled around, the 8K display trend was taken to new heights. Thus, right now, you can buy an 8K TV in several different sizes from Samsung with prices starting at about $5000 and other options are even available from Sony, LG and so forth.
We think that buying any of them is a really bad idea and all the extra visual quality these TVs deliver is wasted along with the extra money you’d spend on them. Let’s explain why.
https website – Personal Media Solutions now has a secure https website.
Secure https websites are needed when any confidential details are entered. The secure https websites encrypts the data send to and from it. Up until now most small businesses have not needed this security.
However, this may be about to change as potential clients coming to your website will be greeted with a very unwelcoming warning that your site is not secure.
Also, Google has said that non secure websites will soon be ranked lower than secure ones.
I happened to see the last part of the last episode of the 2018 series “Call The Midwife”. It had a cine film running, projecting old images onto the screen. Vanessa Redgrave plays Jennifer Worth, the writer whose real-life stories formed the basis of the show. She says:
We flicker on a screen.
We fold and unfold upon the minds eye.
Brittle as wings.
Eternal as a heart beat.
And even when the heart falls silent.
We do not cease to be.
Because in the end…. We all become memories.
