Media madness reigns supreme in screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky's scathing satire about the uses and abuses of network television. But while Chayefsky's and director Sidney Lumet's take on television may seem quaint in the age of "reality TV" and Jerry Springer's talk-show fisticuffs, Network is every bit as potent now as it was when the film was released in 1976. And because Chayefsky was one of the greatest of all dramatists, his Oscar-winning script about the ratings frenzy at the cost of cultural integrity is a showcase for powerhouse acting by Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway and Beatrice Straight (who each won Oscars), and Oscar nominee William Holden in one of his finest roles. Finch plays a veteran network anchorman who's been fired because of low ratings. His character's response is to announce he'll kill himself on live television two weeks hence. What follows, along with skyrocketing ratings, is the anchorman's descent into insanity, during which he fervently rages against the medium that made him a celebrity. Dunaway plays the frigid, ratings-obsessed producer who pursues success with cold-blooded zeal; Holden is the married executive who tries to thaw her out during his own seething midlife crisis. Through it all, Chayefsky (via Finch) urges the viewer to repeat the now-famous mantra "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!" to reclaim our humanity from the medium that threatens to steal it away. --Jeff Shannon

Simplified Recording of Network Cameras The recording of network cameras has been a great challenge up to now. It was necessary to install a special software onto a PC. This software used to operate with one type of camera or one manufacturer only. The new network video recorders (NVR) now allow for a more simplified way of operating. These products come almost ready to use. Only the required hard disks have to be installed in order for the NVRs to be able to record signals of several hundred different types of camera. After installation, many camera types are going to be recognised automatically, if they support UPnP. The perfect setting can individually be chosen for each camera type. The NVR recorders can conveniently be accessed from any PC workstation via a web interface. Thus, the advantages of the network technology can perfectly be utilised. Two or four hard disks with a total recording capacity of up to 6TB (12TB) allow for a long-term recording even with high-resolution network cameras. It is also possible to use the RAID functions in order to reflect the recorded data and to store these, even in case of a hard disk failure. As an operating system, the NVR features an embedded Linux instead of the conventional software package. Thus, the NVR provides an excellent operating reliability. For example, the recorder will start automatically after a power failure without having to restart the programme. Beside the standard features like time/date search and alarm search, the efficient integrated recording software also offers new smart search features. This allows for a specific search for removed or added items. Thus, the NVR recorders represent the ideal efficient central element of a network-based video surveillance. 2-channel network video recorder (NVR)General specifictions: H.264 video compression for recordings Linux operating system for maximum operating reliability Supports 900 different IP cameras. In this case, cameras supporting the UPnP prot

...**FILM ONLY REVIEW**
I must admit I was doubtful that a film about the inception and subsequent growth of Facebook would be able to hold my interest, especially since it would feature the two court cases against creator Mark Zuckerberg. The idea of a legal drama based around a social networking site sounded tedious to me, but enough people had recommended it that I decided to give it a try...
