This year, Mother’s Day will be on Sunday, May 13th, and what better way to celebrate Mom than to give her the gift of reliving old memories? Current Pixel has great gift ideas for Mother’s Day and can make it a simple and easy process for you! The Gift of Video Memories If you have old videotapes and film formats lying around in your house or somewhere in storage filled with precious family memories, you also have the potential to give your mom a heartfelt gift she will be able to enjoy for years to come. By taking the time to organize and convert those old home movies from their outdated formats to DVDs or digital files, you have the chance to help your mom relive some of the most wonderful, fun, hilarious, and touching memories of your family’s past. Maybe your mom even has old film formats of home videos from when she was young. Digitizing those for her would allow her to relive her own childhood memories from the convenience of a television or computer. The Gift of Photo Memories Perhaps your mom has boxes full of old photos that she complains are too disorganized or overwhelming to go through. What a better way to show Mom you appreciate her than organizing those photos and scanning them to DVD or digital files for her to view anytime she wants!

Give Thanks to Technology: How Current Pixel Helps Preserve Family Memories

This Thanksgiving season, Current Pixel invites you to join us in giving thanks for advancements in audio and video technology to enable companies like Current Pixel to preserve family memories for generations. Without these technologies, our old film, video, audio, and photographs would continue to deteriorate over time, and we would run the risk of losing those memories. However, we have the ability to digitize almost any video, audio or consumer film format into digital files, DVD, or CD and preserve precious memories for years and years! We can scan old photographs to keep them safe and make them easier to share online or on social media.  We can also digitize film and video, to give as personal gifts for friends and family or ways to keep memories alive. Advancements in Media Conversion Technology Outdated content from legacy media types like old photos, negatives, 16mm and 8mm film, and Betamax would become unrecognizable if it wasn’t for technology and adequate conversion capabilities. Photos begin to warp and change color over time, and negatives can get damaged from heat or light.   Old film stock can also deteriorate from poor storage and become damaged while trying to view on old projectors. Meanwhile, ways to play old formats are becoming increasingly scarce or far too expensive. Advancements in technology and companies like Current Pixel have made saving precious memories and important footage possible. Preserving Memories for Generations to Come So this Thanksgiving, let’s take a moment to give thanks to technology and digital conversion companies like Current Pixel for keeping our favorite memories safe from harm and giving us the option...

Media Convergence: Is Your Business Optimized for the Digital World?

In the world we live in today, technology has become so advanced that media and all its forms have converged. Our smart phones do not only operate as mobile telephones but also serve as computers, research devices, television sets, and gaming consoles. The same is true for industries. Rather than remaining separate, the worlds of PR, public affairs, publishing, marketing, branding, advertising, and business strategy have all started working together to create the best possible customer service and product imaginable. In a digital and media converging world, everyone has to adapt and accept the need for progress. Customers today expect to interact with businesses’ materials on all their devices—not just through pure television commercials or billboards but also on their smart phones, tablets, and laptops. As you think about your own business, ask yourself the question: Have we optimized our materials and services for the digital world? If the answer is no, think about ways you can adopt media convergence to make your business strategy that much more effective. By digitizing your business’s assets on legacy media, you can make information more accessible to your employees, clients, and customers. Once your business materials are digitized, they can be used for a variety of purposes. Here are some examples: Research/training: With digitized materials, you can use keywords and metadata in a searchable database so HR, PR, leadership, and other employees can access company videos, promotional material, and training videos as the need arises. Online/social media repurposing: Just think—can your print ads be branded into social media-friendly digital graphics that tell the same story but in an online article or blog...
