Why Being GDPR Compliant is Important For Your Business2022-05-16
As companies become increasingly conscious of the significance of cyber security, it goes without saying that they must take precautions to secure consumer and employee data. Ensuring that your organization is GDPR-compliant can give your business peace of mind, knowing that it is proactive in data protection and keeping customer information safe.
What Is the GDPR?
The GDPR, or General Data Protection Regulation, is a new data protection policy that offers customers greater control over their data. The EU created the GDPR to protect EU citizens from privacy and data breaches when their information is stored or processed in other countries.
The law also requires organizations to be accountable for any personal data they collect or hold by establishing clear guidelines on how businesses can use it and what steps to be taken when it is breached.
Why Is It a Good Idea to Be GDPR-Compliant?
There are several reasons why you should make your organization GDPR-compliant, including: Read the rest of this article...
The Power Of The SHTML Or Include Files Explained2022-05-12
Okay, so I have this extensive buy now box that I call "spokesvidtabs-code.shtml." It uses Mals-e.com shopping cart. Which is a javascrpt based 3rd party shopping cart system. The website is built in HTML and is hosted on SiteSell.com AKA Solo Build It (SBI). SBI and Mal's are both programmable software applications. Good thing I know how to code in these apps because...
The buy now box is used on several pages in the website including the one below. Recently I decided to change the pricing for the services offered in the buy now box. Seems like it would be a lot of work to change all those similar boxes on all those different webpages.
Instead I put all the code for the buy now box in a ".shtml" file and call that into each page. This is called an "include file." A programming technique that calls (or includes) a sub-routine file into the page, with a short code snippet. Instead of having to edit each page I edit the include file and every page updates. Here it is...

Small Biz Video for your business could be crucial to your success. Blah, blah, blah! We have all heard of the importance of video media for online business. So no need to explain it again. Just, watch the video...
Small Biz Video
How this video was made may surprise you. First we came up a script for our talent to perform. Then we chose the 2 actors (Keisha and Tim), and had them do a read over a greenscreen.
The voices are computer generated but could have been real human voices. We used a male and female characters with corresponding voices. Getting the timing right was a little tricky. We added a smidge of clip speed to one of the voices and the lengths matched up perfectly.
Your website tips for today is this. For a two person conversations in video, have your actors read through the complete script. Have them read the other part's lines as well as their own. That way you can decide which lines the actor recites in the editing suite. Learn more about how to make a small biz video...
Whats New at BWT Videos - Adobe Media Encoder2022-04-14
BWT Videos recently made some additions to our reptoire of website tools. Notably Adobe Media Encoder has been added to After Effects. This tool has many features we are still exploring. But it is safe to say we like it. Check out this video to see some of what can be done. Then we'll point out some website tips you can use...
BWT Videos Animations
Did you notice the timecode stamped onto the end scenes? If you don't know what that is... timecode is a clock that goes frame by frame. There are 30 frames per second in video. Each frame can be identified easily by time code. This greatly enables editing of content. Timecode stamping is a feature of Adobe Media Encoder.
Adobe Media encoder is an audio / video processing program that can convert media files to other media types. E.g. converting an .AVI file to a .MP4 file. Or convert a MP4 file to a .WAV file. AME works with other Adobe products like After Effects, Premier Pro, Character Animator and Audition.
Adobe Media Encoder opens up opportunities of endeveor for BWT Videos. We probably won't be offering any file conversion services. But will have them available for future projects.
Getting back to the video seen above. It is mostly a cutting room floor compilation of learning experiments as opposed to a script driven production. This video represents a cross over from .AVI to MP4 conversions. We used Adobe After Effects to compose some scenes and converted them to .MP4 for Camtasia Studio to compile the final video.
What does this mean for you? As part of our Animated Spokesperson video creation service it will allow us to work with just about any media type file. Including .AVI, MP3, .MP4, .MOV, .WAV, Full HD 1080p, 4k 2160p, and many more formats. We can incorporate more user supplied content in video creations. Contact BWT Videos for more information...
Teaching Kids Coding Can Help The Future Of The Workforce2022-04-11
As the world relies more on technology, coding can be a valuable skill to have. The digital revolution has brought about major changes in our lives and future generations can benefit from having skills that help them cope with these changes. As such, there are many benefits of teaching kids how to code at a young age.
Children who learn basic programming at an early age can achieve better opportunities later in life when they enter the workforce or college. Here are some of the reasons why learning to code can be beneficial for kids:
It teaches problem-solving
Learning how to code helps children develop critical thinking skills and analyze problems. This is essential as people need to think through different scenarios and work out solutions before taking action. For example, when trying to figure out what's wrong with a code, it's important to carefully analyze each part of it first.
This develops their logical reasoning skills which will help them solve any problem they encounter throughout their lifetime.
