Academy Awards 2016: Record & Save All the Best Films

The 88th Academy Awards (The Oscars) will be live this Sunday on ABC!

Now if you’re anything like us, you’ll want to get caught up on every one of the big name movies nominated for an award before the big night. You can use the built-in Media Guides in your version of Replay Media Catcher to find and record all of your favorite films from the Best Picture category!

Watch all of the trailers below, and be sure to download Replay Media Catcher to grab the full-length flicks for yourself.

The Big Short

Based on the 2010 novel, The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling in a comedy-drama about the 2008 housing market and financial crisis.

 

Bridge of Spies

Steven Spielberg directs this historical drama-thriller, starring Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance and Amy Ryan. Bridge of Spies is sure to be a classic Cold War espionage movie.

 

Brooklyn

Brooklyn is a beautiful historical drama for the modern day person. Based in New York in the 1950’s, Saoirse Ronan plays an Irish immigrant who falls in love with an Italian plumber, but faces temptation while visiting home.

 

Mad Max

A collapse of a civilization leads to full-on war (and lots of speedy chases) among survivors. Starring Tom Hardy and directed by George Miller, Mad Max is as adrenaline-pumping as it is visually stunning.

 

The Martian

Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who gets left behind on Mars. Can they bring him back home while he fights to survive on a new planet? Based on the book by Andy Weir, The Martian is science fiction for the realist.

 

The Revenant 

After sustaining brutal injuries from a bear attack while exploring the wilderness and being left behind, a frontiersman fights for his life. Leonardo DiCaprio stars in The Revenant, inspired by true (scary) events.

 

Room

A newly released captive and her 5 year old son learn how to navigate the real world together. Brie Larson stars in this dramatic, heart-wrenching film based on the novel, Room, by Emma Donoghue.

 

Spotlight

Based on a true story and starring Michael Keaton, Spotlight follows the story of The Boston Globe sending reporters to investigate a cover-up of sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church.

Video of the Month: What Happens When You Toss Boiling Water into Sub-Zero Air?

We spend a lot of time analyzing debug logs and frequently give customers a quick video to test, which means we’re often in search of short clips that end play a vital role in the data logging process. Needless to say, we watch a lot of videos (and other types of media) and want to share them with you!


 

Sometimes, you just have to try something for yourself.

This month, our “video of the month” series brings you an impromptu science experiment in freezing cold Canada with seriously cool results.

Apparently, boiling hot water can often freeze faster than cold water… who knew?!

Using Replay Capture Suite Software to Streamline Your Business

RMC_for_biz-BLOG

Eighteen years ago, when we started building software to keep the media we watch and listen to online, it was the classic case of developing a solution for a problem we experienced first-hand.

A lot has changed on the web since then – the rise of Flash, HTML, and powerful server technologies, has given us more media, more accessibly than ever. The need for tools to save and access this content on our own terms has grown steadily ever since.

We have a lot of fun with the Replay Capture Suite and other Applian products. As we have grown as a business, though, we’ve found that our need to store platform-specific content has grown as well. The solutions for keeping and organizing that content was found right under our noses, within the very products we’d been developing.

Here are some of the best tips we’ve learned for streamlining your business with the amazing software included in the Replay Capture Suite:

Indexing Meetings
With the rise of telecommuting at companies large and small, the need to document the productivity and remote meetings has, too.

Agendas, meeting minutes, and action items are old tricks – a newer technique is using Replay Video Capture to record the audio and/or video from Skype, or any other VoIP platform your company relies on. Knowing what you’ve done and how you’ve spent your time as a company is critical to making better decisions down the line.

Streamlining Training
Whether you’re a global company or a startup, training is draining on time and other resources. Face-to-face training will always be a requisite for many tasks and positions, but being smart about what you can record and reuse can lighten the load substantially.

Do you have an employee with solid presentation skills, or who is particularly strong at communicating company values? Use Replay Video Capture to record their entire spiel and send it over to new hires to study up on, along with other on-boarding materials to make the transition run smoothly.

Staying Sharp
No matter your industry, there’s a slew of online educators, thought leaders and visionaries building their own personal brands around industry-specific content; some of these figures are for real, others are pretenders.

Luckily, Replay Media Catcher’s embedded media guides make finding the best industry and educational content specifically for your business easier than ever, and our recording scheduler helps make sure you don’t miss any of the good stuff once you find it. Sharing is caring. Knowledge is power.

Building Company Culture
Cultures are made when people’s interests intersect, and there’s a large body of evidence to suggest that companies need culture as much as individuals and societies do. But, the divergence of interest topics in the web-connected world can make it tricky to find those water cooler chat items.

Using Replay Media Catcher to record enjoyment media (as opposed to professional), and using shared company storage to disseminate that content, is a great way to start non-work related dialogue.
