The Top 3 Software’s … What’s The Difference ??

In the last Article we did Talk about video editing and it’s Top 3 software’s,  Today we will make a small comparison for these three software’s and there Uses in Hollywood.

1. Avid Media Composer

A large part of understanding one’s popularity is to examine WHY it’s popular. And that requires sharing the most brief of history lessons.

OK, do you remember a time before Internet connected cell phones? Now, try and remember how our daily lives changed when most everyone had one of these devices.

It was a definite shift in how we consumed media. Now, imagine that, only with the CREATION side of media. This was Hollywood in the early 90’s. Digital video cameras were still very new, and limited to standard definition. There were many companies toying with building digital editing software, but none really took hold. That is, until Avid Media Composer came along in the early 90’s.

By building a digital editing platform, based on the terminology and methodology the experienced film editors knew, Avid was able to make the industry adoption of their technology much easier. Thus, we already have 2 reasons Media Composer was popular: it appealed to the sensibilities of the user base, and it was one of the few solutions out there.

Avid also built around their ecosystem, including not only their own shared storage, but having the top audio editing system in the industry; Pro Tools, by then Digidesign, giving users a complete solution tech partner to work with. We call this the “one throat to choke” paradigm.

Many facilities already invested in a complete end-to-end Avid infrastructure.

By the time other NLE’s were in a useable state for film and TV projects, Avid had a massive head start. This meant a decent sized user base in the Hollywood market, facility infrastructures (and thus lots of money already invested in hardware and software) that were built around Media Composer, in addition to workflows that incorporated both legacy film based material, tape acquisition, and newer digital formats. Avid also had project sharing by the early 00’s, something that only recently are other NLE’s getting right. For all of these reasons, Avid had the Hollywood market cornered. And all of this played in to one of the greatest untold truths about Hollywood technology.

If something worked last season, why change it for this season? Changing it messes with budgets and timelines and generally upsets the natives.

And that’s why today, Avid is still used on a vast majority of all feature films and broadcast television in Hollywood.  Existing customer investment in infrastructure, experienced talent pool – both available and already on staff, documented workflows with other departments, a complete ecosystem, and a risk averse industry.  If you plan on getting a job tomorrow out in Hollywood, working in broadcast television or feature film, Media Composer needs to be your strongest software tool.

Video Editing And it’s Software’s

We all hear the Expression “Video Editing” , but Ever wonder what it really means??

 

Video editing is the manipulation and arrangement of video shots, Adding Effects, Transitions, and even titles then exporting it as a single movie. Video editing is used to structure and present all video information, including films and television shows, video advertisements and video essays.

Video editing has been dramatically spreaded in recent years by editing software’s available for personal computers.

Basic Operation’s That SharePointer Needs For SharePointing By Using CSOM – Part 3

Previously in part one we discussed the main operation that developers needs to deal with SharePoint site , and in part 2 , we talked about  SharePoint list , and the bellow examples show how to use the .NET Framework CSOM to complete list item -related tasks.

SharePoint list item tasks

These examples demonstrate how to use the .NET Framework CSOM (Client side object model) to complete tasks that are related to list items.

Retrieve items from a SharePoint list

This example retrieves the items in a SharePoint list. You also need to add a using statement for Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.QueryExpression.

Note

You can use the FolderServerRelativeUrl property to further restrict the items that are returned to those in a specified folder.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// Assume the web has a list named "Announcements". 
List announcementsList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Announcements"); 

// This creates a CamlQuery that has a RowLimit of 100, and also specifies Scope="RecursiveAll" 
// so that it grabs all list items, regardless of the folder they are in. 
CamlQuery query = CamlQuery.CreateAllItemsQuery(100); 
ListItemCollection items = announcementsList.GetItems(query); 

// Retrieve all items in the ListItemCollection from List.GetItems(Query). 
context.Load(items); 
context.ExecuteQuery(); 
foreach (ListItem listItem in items) 
{ 
    // We have all the list item data. For example, Title. 
    label1.Text = label1.Text + ", " + listItem["Title"]; 
} 

Create a new list item

This example creates a new SharePoint list item by using the ListItemCreationInformation class.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// Assume that the web has a list named "Announcements". 
List announcementsList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Announcements"); 

// We are just creating a regular list item, so we don't need to 
// set any properties. If we wanted to create a new folder, for 
// example, we would have to set properties such as 
// UnderlyingObjectType to FileSystemObjectType.Folder. 
ListItemCreationInformation itemCreateInfo = new ListItemCreationInformation(); 
ListItem newItem = announcementsList.AddItem(itemCreateInfo); 
newItem["Title"] = "New Item!"; 
newItem["Body"] = "Hello Developers world!"; 
newItem.Update(); 

context.ExecuteQuery();  

Update a list item

This example updates a SharePoint list item.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// Assume that the web has a list named "Announcements". 
List announcementsList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Announcements"); 

// Assume there is a list item with ID=1. 
ListItem listItem = announcementsList.GetItemById(1); 

// Write a new value to the Body field of the Announcement item.
listItem["Body"] = "This is my new value!!"; 
listItem.Update(); 

context.ExecuteQuery();  

Delete a list item

This example deletes a SharePoint list item.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// Assume that the web has a list named "Announcements". 
List announcementsList = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Announcements"); 

// Assume that there is a list item with ID=2. 
ListItem listItem = announcementsList.GetItemById(2); 
listItem.DeleteObject(); 

context.ExecuteQuery(); } 

basic operation’s that SharePointer needs for SharePointing by using CSOM – part 2

Previously in part one we discussed the main operation that developers needs to deal with SharePoint site and here in part 2 to we’ll focus on SharePoint list , and the bellow examples show how to use the .NET Framework CSOM to complete list-related tasks.

Retrieve all SharePoint lists in a website

This example retrieves all SharePoint lists in a SharePoint website. To compile this code, you need to add a using statement for System.Linq.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web; 

// Retrieve all lists from the server. 
context.Load(web.Lists, 
             lists => lists.Include(list => list.Title, // For each list, retrieve Title and Id. 
                                    list => list.Id)); 

// Execute query. 
context.ExecuteQuery(); 

// Enumerate the web.Lists. 
foreach (List list in web.Lists) 
{ 
    label1.Text = label1.Text + ", " + list.Title; 
} 

Note

Alternatively, you can use the LoadQuery method to store the return value in another collection, rather than use the web.Lists property. You will also need to add using statements for System.Collections.Generic and System.Linq. Also, add an alias to the using statement for the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client namespace so you can refer to its classes unambiguously. For example, using SP = Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web; 

// Retrieve all lists from the server, and put the return value in another 
// collection instead of the web.Lists. 
IEnumerable<SP.List> result = context.LoadQuery(web.Lists.Include( // For each list, retrieve Title and Id.
                                                                   list => list.Title, 
                                                                   list => list.Id)); 

// Execute query. 
context.ExecuteQuery(); 

// Enumerate the result. 
foreach (List list in web.Lists) 
{ 
    label1.Text = label1.Text + ", " + list.Title; 
} 

Create and update a SharePoint list

This example creates a SharePoint list and updates it by using the ListCreationInformation class.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web; 

ListCreationInformation creationInfo = new ListCreationInformation(); 
creationInfo.Title = "My List"; 
creationInfo.TemplateType = (int)ListTemplateType.Announcements; 
List list = web.Lists.Add(creationInfo); 
list.Description = "New Description"; 

list.Update(); 
context.ExecuteQuery(); 

Delete a SharePoint list

This example deletes a SharePoint list.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web; 

List list = web.Lists.GetByTitle("My List"); 
list.DeleteObject(); 

context.ExecuteQuery();  

Add a field to a SharePoint list

This example adds a field to a SharePoint list. Add an alias to the using statement for the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client namespace so you can refer to its classes unambiguously. For example, using SP = Microsoft.SharePoint.Client;.

Note

The example uses context.CastTo to do a cast. Before executing the query, the client library does not know the real type of the returned object “field”, and SharePoint.Field is the only possible type. If you know the real type, you can use the ClientContext.CastTo method to cast the object.

C#
// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net"); 

SP.List list = context.Web.Lists.GetByTitle("Articles"); 

SP.Field field = list.Fields.AddFieldAsXml("<Field DisplayName='MyField2' Type='Number' />", 
                                           true, 
                                           AddFieldOptions.DefaultValue); 
SP.FieldNumber fldNumber = context.CastTo<FieldNumber>(field); 
fldNumber.MaximumValue = 100; 
fldNumber.MinimumValue = 35; 
fldNumber.Update(); 

context.ExecuteQuery();  

basic operation’s that SharePointer needs for SharePointing by using CSOM – part 1

Yes, SharePoint is awesome and I really enjoyed with developing apps on it, and in this article I’ll list down the basic operation that SharePoint developer needs while SharePointing  by using CSOM

We have four main things to deal with in SharePoint

  • Operations on SharePoint site  – Part 1
  • Operations on SharePoint List- Part 2
  • Operations on SharePoint List item -Part 3
  • Operations on SharePoint Users- Part 4

And I’ll start with SharePoint site operation

Ø  Get all Website properties

Retrieve the title of a SharePoint website.

C#

// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://Developersportal.net"); 
// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web;  
// We want to retrieve the web's properties.
context.Load(web);
// Execute the query to the server.
context.ExecuteQuery(); 
// Now, the web's properties are available and we could display
// web properties, such as title. 
label1.Text = web.Title;

 

However you can retrieve only selected properties of a website

If you are  interested only in a few properties of the Site object. The SharePoint  Framework CSOM (Client side object model)  does not require you to get all properties from the object on a serve, so  you can use lambda expressions, to specifically requested property names.

By using this technique you’ll reduce the unnecessary data transfer between the client and the server..

Note that you need to add a using statement for System.Linq.

C#

// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net");  
// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web;  
// We want to retrieve the web's title and description. 
context.Load(web, w => w.Title, w => w.Description);  
// Execute the query to server.
context.ExecuteQuery();  
// Now, only the web's title and description are available. If you 
// try to print out other properties, the code will throw 
// an exception because other properties are not available. 
label1.Text = web.Title;
label1.Text = web. Description;

 

Ø  Update SharePoint site’s properties

This example shows how to write to the website’s properties.

C#

// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net");  
// The SharePoint web at the URL.
Web web = context.Web;  
web.Title = "New Title (Devalopers Portal Awesome Team)";
web.Description = "New Description";  
// Note that the web.Update() does not trigger a request to the server
// because the client library until ExecuteQuery() is called. 
web.Update();  
// Execute the query to server.
context.ExecuteQuery();

 

Ø  Create a new SharePoint site

This example shows how to create a new SharePoint site as a subsite of the current website. Use the WebCreationInformation class to create a new website. You also need to add using statements for System.Collections.Generic and System.Text.

C#

// Starting with ClientContext, the constructor requires a URL to the 
// server running SharePoint. 
ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://developersportal.net ");  
WebCreationInformation creation = new WebCreationInformation();
creation.Url = "sub site 1";
creation.Title = "Hello sub site 1"; 
Web newWeb = context.Web.Webs.Add(creation);
// Retrieve the new web information. c
ontext.Load(newWeb, w => w.Title); 
context.ExecuteQuery();  
label1.Text = newWeb.Title;

Why do we need an ERP system to run our businesss ?

Why do we need an ERP system to run our businesss ?

Many small to mid-sized manufacturers believe that they can do without an ERP system. They believe that their operation is simple enough that they can control it with a few spreadsheets. Often, this is simply not the case. Here are 10 of the most compelling reasons to implement an ERP system.

1. Real-time information for decisions

Without an ERP system, your team is flying blind. They make decisions based on guesswork and rules of thumb because they don’t have the data they need. Sometimes they are the right decisions, but more often, they are sub-optimum decisions that can cost you money and customer goodwill.

2. Best practice procedures

Software companies often design their ERP systems to support specific industries or verticals. As they add customers, they learn industry best practices and incorporate them into the software. By implementing an ERP system designed for your industry, you automatically make your business processes more efficient.

3. Improved visibility

If customers want to know when their order will ship or if you need to know whether you have enough of a critical component to accept a rush order, an ERP system gives you instant visibility into your operations and your supply chain.

4. Faster month-end close

ERP systems automatically process transactions and generate audit trails and financial reports that can simplify period-end closings. They flag anomalies so you can investigate quickly, and they simplify repetitive journal entries and other activities that make closing so complex and time consuming. Faster closes mean you know the health of your business sooner.

5. Increased customer satisfaction

Customers like accurate delivery dates, and ERP can help you provide them with improved inventory and shop floor visibility. In addition, the increased visibility and accuracy will help you improve your DIFOT rate (delivery in full on time), which helps keep customers happy.

6. Managed and controlled costs

ERP systems calculate and collect costs so you always have an accurate picture of your product cost and margins.

7. Better operational efficiency

By helping you to plan production more effectively, your operational efficiency will improve as you reduce setups and teardowns or unnecessary downtime.

8. Accurate records

The uniformity of record data that an ERP system instills will help ensure that your records are more accurate, which will increase process accuracy across the board.

9. Balance of supply and demand

MRP, a component of ERP systems, will help you balance supply and demand so you can reduce inventory while keeping customers happy.

10. Reduced lead times and increased throughput

Better scheduling and accurate records ensure that your schedules focus on priorities, leading to shorter lead times. Since you won’t have as many orders waiting for tooling or parts, your throughput will increase.
