New Video Production Project: Great Blue Heron T’ai Chi

Longmont Computer video production shoot with Steve Elliott of Great Blue Heron T'ai Chi
We recently worked with Longmont’s own Great Blue Heron T’ai Chi, producing a few short videos for owner Steve Elliott.  The project included videography, video editing, DVD authoring, and video compression, creating YouTube-ready video files.

The videos feature three different T’ai Chi routines: Shibashi Chi Gong, Animal Frolics (Easy), and Animal Frolics (Advanced).

Here’s a sample video from YouTube:

Fiber Broadband Internet Will Increase Your Property Value

fiber broadband internetLongmont, CO, has the fastest internet in the USA! Cities like Longmont, which took the incredible technological leap forward to provide affordable, municipal, gigabit fiber broadband internet (“NextLight“) to its citizens, are reaping big rewards. Not only does fast internet in homes and businesses increase productivity and enjoyment of streaming internet entertainment services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, it also increases the property value of those homes when it comes time to sell them.

According to an article at computerworld.com:

High-speed fiber broadband service, with 1 Gbps download speeds, can add more than $5,400 to the value of an average U.S. home, according to a study commissioned by the Fiber to the Home Council Americas (FTTH), an advocacy group made up of fiber equipment vendors and broadband providers.

If you really want to unlock the full potential of your fiber broadband internet experience, contact Longmont Computer today to learn more about possible hardware and software updates available to you, such as routers, “Smart TVs” and Blu-ray/DVD players, mobile devices, VOIP services, and more!

Fiber Broadband & WiFi: What You Need To Know

Longmont, CO, is one of the first cities in America to offer municipal, city-wide Gigabit Fiber Optic Broadband Internet. They have branded it “nextLight” and as of November 2014 it is being installed and phased into the city over the next three years.

NextLight-Broadband-in-Longmont-Logo

There are two methods of connecting to the internet via a newly installed fiber optic modem:

1. Ethernet cable (Cat-5e or Cat-6).

2. WiFi.

If you already own a wireless router, you can hook it up and enjoy your existing hardware. However, if you really want to take “full advantage” of the fast gigabit internet coming through your new fiber modem, you will need two pieces of gear, an 802.11ac wireless router, and an 802.11ac-capable wireless antenna.

If you are in the market to purchase any of the above, please contact Longmont Computer for the best options tailored to your individual needs.
