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.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mark Bernardo Professional Services Leader, Americas, at GE Digital, discussed how leveraging the Industrial Internet and...
There will be new vendors providing applications, middleware, and connected devices to support the thriving IoT ecosystem. This essentially means that electronic device manufacturers will also be in the software business. Many will be new to building embedded software or robust software. This creates an increased importance on software quality, particularly within the Industrial Internet of Things where business-critical applications are becoming dependent on products controlled by software. Qua...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, David Shacochis, host of The Hybrid IT Files podcast and Vice President at CenturyLink, investigated three key trends of the “gigabit economy" though the story of a Fortune 500 communications company in transformation. Narrating how multi-modal hybrid IT, service automation, and agile delivery all intersect, he will cover the role of storytelling and empathy in achieving strategic alignment between the enterprise and its information technology.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
