Nokia N810 Demonstration Video Needed
« on: October 04, 2009, 04:54:52 pm »
Hello Community,

We're looking for someone to create a video that demonstrates the LinuxMCE capabilities with the Nokia N810. Preferably, we would like a video that demonstrates ALL of the capabilities the Nokia N810 has with the LinuxMCE, so if you have a "complete" LinuxMCE system, then that would be a plus. If not, please submit a video of whatever capabilities you currently have. Please contact me if you have any further questions.

Well it does what an Orbiter can do...what features that are specific to the N800/810 are looking to have demonstrated?

Drew,

I know it does what an Orbiter can do, but I'm looking to get a video that demonstrates the features ON an N800/810.

Drew,

So what your looking for is not screen captures...as this would be pointless as it would be indistinguishable from any other UI1 based Orbiter...but live video of the N800/810 being held and used to control various devices controlled by the system. So this requires a Camera person and a demonstrator...as doing it all with a single person is a skill only Thom has :-)

Right, I want a video similar to what Thom does. We might be 'ok' with this request, since Thom is getting an N810 any day now.

I really should ham up the fact that I have a camera that creates videos that don't edit well....so I have to do the Cloverfield/Blair Witch school of cinematography....

Just wobble to a shot of my face, out in the cold, breathing... "My house....is trying to kill me... *huhhh*huhhh*" *run*run*run*wobbble-camera*wobble-shot-of-ground-see-shot-of-my-feet-with-a-semblence-of-lights-and-TVs-turning-on-and-off-randomly*

:P

Will need some feedback on what features you want shown in the video though,  happy to change anything.

Back in 10 mins, will grab camera and N810.

Will need some feedback on what features you want shown in the video though,  once I stick the first draft up.

Over to DLewis... he's the 'producer' for this little production ;-)

Well I have learnt that mine shouldn't be as slow as it is. Must be my aging WiFi router....

Feedback? You mean other than _not_ playing Country music right? ;)

Might be good to see transfer of the running media to another MD if you have one?

Also - side note. Is that a customer skin or part of 810 Alpha? Looks very nice.

you guys _really_ need to back off the faux reflectivity. it cuts down on the effective viewing distance, subtlety is the key to a good look.
