Virtual Concepts and Terms:

You are already familiar with -- and using -- many "virtual products".

To name a few...

Virtual products are flooding our lives!

So why not VIRTUAL HOME MOVIES in a VIRTUAL LIBRARY!

What exactly is a Virtual Realiy Product:

A technology shift has taking place which demands a paradigm shift in thinking.

An example of "A Paradigm shift in Thinking"

When your grand parents looked into the sky as a child, all they THOUGHT they were looking at were STARS.

Enter a Paradigm Shift in Thinking... many specks of light are galaxies.

NOW, most school children Looking into the night-sky. realization that any one tiny speck of light may NOT be "just a star" but may be -- in reality -- a galaxy of stars -- larger than our own Milky-Way; a galaxy -- a galaxy that was there long before there were any eyes upon Earth to see it; and a galaxy that will be there -- long after there is nothing left of Earth itself.

Virtual-Reality: The NEW paradigm shift within the digital sciences is a technology-shift, called Virtual-Reality -- where data itself takes on a "non-physical state-of-being" of its own -- independent of any one medium -- independent of any one device -- existing in a DIGITAL-STATE-of-Being" -- "PRACTICALLY AS IF IT WERE" -- in a PHYSICAL-STATE-of-Being.

VIRTUALLY means "practically the same as".

In that context, a Virtual-DVD, is a 100% DIGITAL-STATE DVD -- that exists and functions and can be transported -- "practically the same as" a "physical DVD dics".

In fact, the plastic disc, itself -- is NOT the DVD. The actual DVD is

  1. the "digital disc image" BURNED into
  2. the plastic disc!

They are two different things!

If you did NOT already know that, you may have just had -- a Paradigm Shift in Thinking -- and you can NOW and NEVER AGAIN look at a physical DVD the same way!

Could the "DVD disc image" be "burned" on a memory chip -- and work as a Solid-State™ DVD?

Sure it can. You can even put your entire Home Movie collection (library) of DVDs on a little flash drive! You can use it to play the DVD disc images or even "burn" more physical DVD disc!

That is exactly what our Home Movies-N-a-Flash™ (drive) is all about!

And we empower you to make as many of these Solid-State DVDs as you and your family could every want!

In fact we encourage it; because the more copies you give to other family members -- the better chance some of them will survive the ages! Why?

Virtual-Products are FAMILY-SUSTAINABLE -- WITH NO EXPIRATION DATE.
Anything in a "Virtual State" has the potential to exist FOREVER!
This is another paradigm shift in the Video Archive Sciences.

I mean, stop, and think about it...

IT'S A NO-BRAINER!

 


Introducing the Sustainable:

Virtually-For-EVER™ Home-Movies™ Preservation-Library™

Virtually-For-EVER™ Library (for short).



Virtual-Imaging™ 8mm 16mm Film Video Tape

Virtual-Imaging™: Transforming "Physical-images" into "Media-FREE™ Images" -- with "Universal Compatibility" -- and long term "Family Sustainability".


The following are a few terms and definitions:

"Film Transfer" Companies create video archives from movie film (in theory).

  • Film-Transfer™: Temporarily re-embodying (capturing) an image FROM one a physical medium ONTO another physical medium; A kind of Image-Reincarnation™ (without any religious connotation). Image life is tied to both media longevity AND media-player longevity.

    Example: A physical Film transfer (capture) to a physical DVD disc -- where the images (like your family home movies) are again re-embodied (captured) -- until the failure (death) of the DVD disc (2 to 5 years) OR the DVD player dies or until the DVD Disc Player Industry itself fails.

    Exapmple: A recent fatality in the Music Industry, was CD Music Discs -- not because CDs or CD-players failed, but because the marketplace failed -- to support them -- voting with dollars in favor of "virtual-discs" and "virtual-disc players" -- in the flavors of Apple and Blackberry. Have you seen any CD stores -- or CD/bookstores -- lately? Have YOU sunk to stealing -- "STRipping" -- your own CD library -- as virtal-discs -- with iTunes or Windows Media Player?

    If you have, then what comes next will entertain you.
  • If you have not, what comes next will cause the needle on your paradigm meter-- to shift -- but I warn you, if that happens, you will NOT "get over it".


  • Film Virtualization™: To lift or resurrect or free an image from is bond or bondage with a physical medium; and TRANSFORM IT INTO a Media-FREE™ Digital-State-of-Being (i.e., a Virtual-State™);

    The act of giving physical images (like your family home movies) 100% digital existence (i.e., Virtually-For-EVER™):

    A kind of Digital-Existential-Realization™ (without any religious connotation); To Virtualize-Images™ from movie film into their own FREE™ Virtual-State of digial-being - potentially forever.

    Comment: Yes, you have seen NetFix and the stars in the sky -- but did you "Real-Eyes™ what your were looking at -- when you saw it?

    Example: A Film Virtualization™ gives moving images Virtually-For-EVER™ -- as in the creation of a Virtual-DVD (i.e., as a Disc-FREE™ Device-FREE™ DVD -- needing no physical disc -- to exist; and needing no physical disc player -- to play);

    Having Virtually-For-EVER™ frees the Virtual-DVD for Cloud-Cloning™ and Strategic Replication™ -- to assume new "virtrual-state" and new "physcial-state" products;

    For Example: A Virual-DVD can easily transdescend into a embodied physical-state
  • Once virtualized a DVD Disc-IMAGE is

    (You may blink now...but stay tuned for this...)

    Image longevity is no longer a question;
    Image longevity is a decision.
    To transend; or to transfer;
    To be; or NOT to be;
    That is the quesiton.
    How to do it,
    is Virtually-POSSIBLE...



    Dumb-Drives™ and
    Dumb-Files™ and
    Dumber-Transfers™

    A bunch of "Dumb-Video-Files™" on a "Dumb-Drive™" is USELESS to most people, because after being attached to a computer -- the Dumb-Drive™ does nothing!

    The Dumb-Video-Files™, if you can find them, offer the layman no intellegent clue as to

    Even if you "figure it ALL out", you will find the Dumb-Drives™ and Dumb-Videos™
    are "dependent" (THE KEYWORD DEFINING THEM AS NOT VIRTUAL)

    A Dumb-Drive™ with Dumb-Video-Files™ does NOT qualify as a Virtual-Archive™.
    It qualifies as USELESS -- to your family -- NOW AND IN THE FUTURE!

    The only thing DUMBER than

    FYI: Our Virtually-For-EVER™ Library and Virtually-For-EVER™ Files -- are very SMART™.

    For Example: 4K Video on a hard drive is NOT a Virtual-Archive™. Plug the drive into, "...what kind of computer, with what kind of boards, and what kind of display, with what kind of software? And then what?" Most families do not have the knowledge nor the equipment to use 4K video files. They just want "to play video" -- but they can't even do that! But if they could, they would find the 4K video is poluted with artifacts from "hyper-formating" tiny 8mm film. This is a DUMB-Transfer™ -- looking for Dumb-Money™.

    If you just grabbed for your wallet, you can save both your wallet -- and the general part of your annatomy you just grabbed -- by reading Tutorial: Resolution (or how to save your money and your copyrighted assets).

    1. To FREE™ images
      1. from any Physical-State™ (medium or disc), and
      2. from any Physical-Device™ (player/recorder); and,

      4. making it physically-replicatable

    For Example: A device or software "dependant", proprietary video file -- which we call a Dumb-File™ -- is NOT a Virtual-File™.

    Most Dumb-Video-Files are dependant on specific video editors, or players, or legal considerations.

    To be "virtualized" a format must be "packaged" in a

    Virtually-For-EVER™ Library™

    DVD Discs are last decades' technology.
    Recordable DVDs NEVER WERE and ARE NOT NOW "archive worthy"!

    We make thousands of DVD discs each year! However...
    We do NOT sell DVD discs -- even "archive gold" type DVD discs -- as being "archive worthy".


    Welcome to this decade with our...

    Virtually-For-EVER™ Home-Movies™ Library™ System:

    Exceeds the Standards of the National Archives and The Library of Congress!

    Plus Plus Plus Media-Tools

    The typical product mix pictured above:

    FOR JUST A LITTLE MORE -- THAN THE COST OF 'JUST DVD DISCS!

    The word "virtual", as used here, denotes a "Digital-State" NOT dependent any one physical media for its existence.

    The word "archiving" means the ongoing process of preserving movie film and video -- long term -- for functional use.

    The word "system", as used here, denotes many components

    1. unified in ONE PURPOSE - the purpose of REPLICATION -- Forever.
    2. However we have built FUN-ctionality™ into "the system".


    Old archive strategies

    say -- "to insure longevity -- spare no expense to hold and protect -- the video media". In the computer industry, magnetic tape and backups were the foundation of long term storage. Tape had disadvantages. It was slow to use, bulky, and used a dated transport system.
    Example: Minium Archive: 2 master tapes -- stored in a vault.


    New archive strategies

    say - "to insure longevity

    1. FREE Video Data from traditional video media -- like discs .
    2. Make the video archive a Self-Contained System -- With 3 major elements:
      A) Video Storage -- with enouh room for expansion,
      B) a Tutorial -- on How to Use and Duplicate Videos from the Archive, and
      C) a Video Media Player-- to periodically review and test videos.
    3. Diversify Home Movie Videos into different video formats -- according to the different ways people use videos.
    4. Make the video archive cheap and easy to share and duplicate -- with friends and family. For those who have an interest in preserving the video archive -- give them a complete copy of the archive -- with "archive masters".
    5. As media technology shifts, and since your video images are NOT tied to any one media (virtual), future generations of your family can simply adapt the Virtually-For-EVER™ Library™ to the newer technologies -- thus the process of "archiving" continues indefinitely into the future.
    6. Make Archive Expandable. "Archiving System" implies that you and future generation can ADD new video to your Virtually-For-EVER™ Library™ -- in the future -- using what we have done -- as an "archiving" guideline.
      Our Virtually-For-EVER™ Library™ is part software, part tutorial, part strategic archive planning, part storage technology from last decade, and part technology from this decade.


    The Foundation of our Virtually-For-EVER™ Library™

    is what we call Virtually-For-EVER master files For HDTV-- Your Home Movies which have been IMAGE™ and Color Enhanced for HDTV. Your Virtually-For-EVER master files For HDTVare used to make ALL "other video formats"in your Virtually-For-EVER™ Library™. Each video format targets a set of functional uses -- by different family members.

    Some video formats targeting preservation and editing.
    Some target use with HDTV.
    Some target legacy technology (like DVD players).
    Some target Internet use.
    Some target the need of cheap and easy sharing (distribution).

    With our Strategic Video Archive System you can make ALL the products below --
    as many as your entire family will EVER need -- FOREVER!
