AMD Mixes Gaming & Hollywood With Cinema 2.0

On Monday AMD had made an announcement surrounding the convergence of computer gaming and Hollywood film making with Cinema 2.0. Cinema 2.0 is not a new GPU technology, a new piece of software, or anything tangible, but it's been described as just an inflection point and vision/road-map. Cinema 2.0 is similar to the Web 2.0 ecosystem and they believe it will be a defining moment in the gaming and graphics industries.

Goldmund's Media Room: A Dream For Audiophiles

Last week I had received a unique CES invitation from Rogers & Cowan, a PR firm representing an array of entertainment and technology companies, about one of their clients that advertises itself as the makers of the "world's most extravagant and technologically advanced systems for audio-video purists." For the Consumer Electronic Show, participating companies will either have a booth or suite somewhere in Las Vegas, but that wasn't the case for Goldmund, this Rogers & Cowan client that specializes in high-end audio/video systems. Their systems are so advanced that they simply cannot be built in a day or even a week, but for each of their media rooms they spend extensive time planning and constructing the rooms that are slated to be perfect, even an imperfect world. With that said, it was easier and more cost effective for Goldmund to just have four other writers and I check out their luxurious home theater systems in a demonstration home near Los Angeles.
