New Video Players released

Over here at my new gig at the CTV Digital Media Group, I’m working with the development team building out CTV’s new online video players, which will get deployed across most of CTV’s properties.

Here’s a few of the currently deployed players (still in Beta, but they work well.)

What the hell is “Progressive Progressing”?

I got a promotional email from Amazon today, recommending some items they thought I should buy, which, you know, I really appreciate.

Anyway, one of the items they were promoting was a Panasonic Blu-Ray player, and it was listed for $698USD, which I thought was rather steep, so I thought I’d check out the listing and see what was so great about this player.

Apparently, all that extra money is for the “Pixel Precision Progressive Progressing for HD” component. Seriously, what the hell is that?
