the creation of the Video/Image – Electro Mechanical Mobility Aid (VI –
EMMA) an electric wheelchair outfitted with various devices to
facilitate the capture of both video and photographs by the handicapped.
These purposeful undertakings are meant to make current technological tools in software, hardware, and
composite systems, drive down there cost & complexity, and make them generally available especially to local historical and
nonprofit organizations in order to foster the creation and development of virtual books, virtual libraries, virtual museums
for handicapped. Although some of these technologies have been available for a while the applications
to diverse disciplines is new.The technological tools initially are developed & tested in the
Technomage Imagineering Laboratory
section before utilizing them throughout the website.
Stated below is just one example of the various
activities that the Kronos Projects is working on in the areas of
historical data preservation and exhibiting: virtual libraries, virtual
museums, exhibiting detailed photographs, and video presentations.
As an example, when a video is produced for Mendham TV; a schedule
of the program is sent out by e-mail and other personal media; listed on
various websites, and the message is received on computers, cell phones,
androids, and various other handheld devices. During and after the
showing of the video, a more detailed account via a textual, video, and
image presentation augments & enhances the story. The story’s website
section offers other references and other sources of information that can
be perused by the viewer.
The Video/Image/Text Workstation (VITW) is used to develop video
for Mendham TV, the Internet, and to create DVDs of events. The
workstation is employed to process digital images that are prepared for
inclusion in the videos, for the Internet, for display on this website &
other website, and to produce prints. Also the VITW is used to prepare
text for the website, e-mails, books and articles in the form of PDFs,
e-books, and printed material.
The compliment of peripherals connected to the computer consist of a
printer, a scanner, turntable, LightScribe DVD burner, various video
playing and recording devices, and a collection of storage hard disks
