History behind filming<br />The 1930’s decade and most of the 1940’s were mostly black and white movies. In the 30s was also the decade of the sound and color revolution, this is when the development of color was defiantly up for improvement. Loads of inventers were searching ways to include color in film and media. Videotape recorder (VTR) is the tool needed to film and the first one was invented by Charles P. Ginsburg. In the late 18th century film was the only medium available for recording television programs. <br />In the 1920’s an American engineer named Philo Taylor Farnsworth invented a television camera a tool that converts images captured into an electrical signal that could be viewed on screen.<br />http://inventors.about.com/library/inventors/blvideo.htm<br />http://www.filmsite.org/30sintro.html<br />
The World Wide Web! Internet <br />The internet can be accessed all over the world where ever you may be and this allows you to access documents and files and information on basically what ever you need to know. The internet became popular to the public around 1993-94; around then computers were very basic and were mainly used by universities and research institutions to share documents and information. And through time the internet expanded and became the world wide web (www). Now you can use the internet for many mediums of record such as film on websites like YouTube, iTunes for MP3’s and videos and Blogs for recording text there are also social networking types for pictures such as face book.<br />
Now & Then!<br />Technology in the early 19th century were very simple inventions and has rapidly developed to become more handy for us. For example in the late 1990’s we had big bulky computers and know we have laptops. The year 2000 was a big break in development of technology from TV boxes to plasma/flat screens to HD to 3D and know Blue ray. Technology is developing as we speak and who knows is there an end to it?<br />
