What is IMAX

int_blog_academy,  Friday, November 21st, 2008

SEE MORE, HEAR MORE, FEEL MORE

IMAX AND IMAX 3D THEATRES
In IMAX  the audiences feel like they are part of the action due to the specially designed theatres, breathtaking, crystal clear images projected onto giant screens and exhilarating sound from state-of-the-art digital sound systems.

In 2008, IMAX will launch its new digital projection system. The new system is designed to create the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience in a digital format. The new system will integrate a suite of proprietary IMAX technologies with dual digital projectors, multi-channel digital surround sound and IMAX’s world-famous theatre geometry that puts you IN the movie. The system will deliver the superior cinematic experience that IMAX moviegoers have come to recognize and enjoy, with stunningly crisp and bright images, as well as crystal clear surround sound, in both 2D and IMAX 3D.

Unlike conventional theatre sound systems, IMAX digital surround sound systems deliver multi-channel, uncompressed, full fidelity sound that is simply unsurpassed in depth and clarity. IMAX’s amplifiers generate up to 14,000 watts of power, not volume, to provide the audience with life-like sound. IMAX’s proprietary loudspeaker system delivers exacting volume and quality at every seat throughout the theatre. From a small drop of rain to an enormous clap of thunder, you’ll hear every shade and subtlety, regardless of where you are sitting.

The New IMAX theater is going to be inaugurated at the Mani Square Mall, Kolkata. It will definitely be a boon for cine lovers.

All animation film lovers. I specially dedicate this post to one of my dear friend in office ‘The Magician’. “Its for you “.

Fourteen films have been submitted to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in hopes of securing one of the three nominations available in the best animated feature category.

The contenders are “Bolt,” “Delgo,” “Dragon Hunters,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Igor,” “Kung Fu Panda,” “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa,” “$9.99,” “The Sky Crawlers,” “Sword of the Stranger,” “The Tale of Despereaux,” “Waltz With Bashir” “WALL-E” and “Dr Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!

Useful tips to manage your Time

int_blog_academy,  Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

I did a year long management course quite sometime back and there I had a session on Time Management, given by the Instructor. Suddenly yesterday I got those notes written in one of the pads which I was shuffling through. I thought it worth for a posting and wish these useful tips will surely be of help to all who wants to manage there time .”

When instructions are given, listen well and carefully for the first time.
It’s easy to not listen when you know the deadline is far off in the future. But when that deadline gets closer, are you going to remember every detail? You don’t want to have to find all that information again.

Learn to say no. Obviously, you can’t say no to a teacher when given an assignment. But otherwise, if someone asks you to do something, it’s okay to say no.

Focus on one thing at a time. Multitasking isn’t always your friend; it leads to distractions and you don’t work as efficiently. By focusing and getting things done, you accomplish more.

Organize your life. Spending 30 minutes looking for something is a wasted use of time. Get rid of everything you don’t need, want, or like, and then group common things together. Also, this saves you money, so you don’t have to “rebuy” things you can’t find.

Do away with unnecessary correspondence. Cut back on checking your e-mail, messaging on your phone, or IMing.

Set goals. Break big goals up into smaller goals, and knock them out one at a time.

Use a calendar. Make sure it’s a portable calendar, and take it everywhere with you. Use a pencil.

Make a to-do list. Every little thing you have to do, write it down. You will forget, otherwise. Find days to add those to-do items on your calendar, and do them.

Have a plan & follow it each day. It takes 21 consecutive days to change a habit.

Finally I would like to add a tip of mine which I personally follow in my daily life. Knowledge: The more you learn, the more efficient you become .”
