Concert Window streams with ALE technology

We’ve been collaborating with a company named Concert Window on a very interesting application that uses some of our camera control technology.

Concert Window is a live streaming concert network partnered with top-notch venues around the United States, including Club Passim in Boston, MA; (Le) Poisson Rouge in New York, NY; The Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, CA; The Berklee Performance Center in Boston, MA; and more. 

For music fans it’s only $3 to watch each show or $8.99 for unlimited monthly access. 

Dan Gurney, President of Concert Window, commented, “In an era of plummeting music sales and rampant digital piracy, we believe that the music industry must leverage the power of live concerts more than ever before. So, we help musicians and venues by streaming their performances, advertising their music and merchandise, and sharing two-thirds of subscription and pay-per-view proceeds with them”.

Applied Logic is proud to support Concert Window on this exciting new venture.

Helping tell the story of the USS Essex

I attended the annual Gales Of November conference in Duluth, MN yesterday, which is a day-long celebration of the maritime history of the North Shore area.

My friends Ann Merriman and Chris Olson of Maritime Heritage Minnesota gave a great talk on the USS Essex, which is wrecked just outside the Duluth harbor.  The Essex is significant because it is Minnesota’s only U.S. Naval shipwreck — Chris and Ann have been working on documenting the wreck and recommending various ways to preserve it for the future.

 

We were happy to contribute many of the digital images that were shown in MHM’s presentation.  We were able to get on the wreck on a couple of different occasions, taking both still and video images that helped document the current state of the wreck for MHM’s analysis.

MHM is a non-profit that could always use donations to continue their work.  They have several different projects going on, including the Essex work, documenting steamboat shipwrecks in the upper Mississippi River, and investigating wrecks in Lake Minnetonka from the early 1900’s.  Take a look at their site and donate.
