Panasonic réussit la diffusion en directe d'une éclipse solaire totale en recourant à l'énergie solaire

Au matin du 14 novembre 2012, le Nord de l’Australie a été témoin d’une éclipse solaire totale. Panasonic, grâce à l'énergie fournie uniquement par ses panneaux solaires HIT(R) et par ses batteries Li-on pour le stockage, a réussi à procéder à une diffusion en direct de ce phénomène astrologique spectaculaire via USTREAM.

L'éclipse solaire a été diffusée à partir de deux bases situées en mer, à Port Douglas et Fitzroy Island, à respectivement 60 km et 30 km au nord-ouest de Cairns. Quelques jours avant ce spectaculaire instant, le soleil avait souvent tendance à se cacher timidement derrière les nuages, mais au moment de l'éclipse totale, il s'est distingué parmi les intervalles nuageuses, et le LUMIX GH2 de Panasonic, fixé à un télescope, est parvenu à capturer pendant près de deux minutes ce moment exceptionnel.

Cette diffusion en direct « éco-responsable » et difficile à réaliser, présentée aux yeux du monde via Ustream, a réuni au total 800 000 spectateurs sur les deux bases, principalement grâce au bouche à oreille, notamment sur les réseaux sociaux comme Twitter et Facebook. Merci à tous ceux qui y ont participé !

Ce défi épique consistant à « Filmer le soleil, en utilisant l'énergie de ce dernier » constitue la deuxième démarche de Panasonic en la matière, après la diffusion en direct d'une éclipse annulaire depuis le Mont Fuji, au Japon, en mai 2012. Comptant parmi les marques de premier plan en solutions énergétiques, Panasonic continuera d'exploiter ses technologies et ses idées de vie afin de partager dans un futur proche encore d'autres moments émouvants et profonds de ce genre. Restez informés !

À propos de l'éclipse solaire totale

Une éclipse totale du soleil se produit lorsque la lune se place entre le soleil et la Terre, rendant ainsi la totalité du soleil invisible. L’éclipse totale étant un phénomène dans lequel le soleil n’est pas visible, ce que nous pouvons en réalité observer ne sont autres que les gaz chauds de la couronne solaire, ce que nous appelons l’« anneau de feu » et la « proéminence solaire ». Le faisceau d'observation d'une éclipse solaire totale est très étroit, c'est pourquoi il est considéré comme rare d'avoir la chance d'en être témoin une fois dans sa vie.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.

"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
There will be 150 billion connected devices by 2020. New digital businesses have already disrupted value chains across every industry. APIs are at the center of the digital business. You need to understand what assets you have that can be exposed digitally, what their digital value chain is, and how to create an effective business model around that value chain to compete in this economy. No enterprise can be complacent and not engage in the digital economy. Learn how to be the disruptor and not the disruptee.
2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover.

Imagine a world where targeting, attribution, and analytics are just as intrinsic to the physical world as they currently are to display advertising. Advances in technologies and changes in consumer behavior have opened the door to a whole new category of personalized marketing experience based on direct interactions with products.

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
