Creating HDTV Videos from your Photos

IEEE Louisville Section
Life Member Affinity Group (LMAG)

Don’t keep your photos trapped in a little camera or cell phone. There are
techniques for moving those photos to your computer. Then learn the process
for creating a unique video of those photos and finally transporting the show to
any Big-Screen (HD)TV. A 20-minute show will display samples of videos which
have been created over the past years. During the discussion, Lee Hoke will
guide you through the techniques required to create ‘Your Big Show’.
All Section members are welcome to attend. Come have a brew with us (and
some good Irish food too) and enjoy the fun! No RSVP needed, just show up!

Mission Critical Data Center Operations

Abstract: Eaton’s two Kentucky data centers house many thousands of servers running critical
applications, petabytes of storage as well as the necessary networking and security components.
The applications in the data centers support manufacturing, supply chain, finance, and many
other critical functions on a global scale 24/7.

Some of the keystones of mission critical operations are redundancy, equipment reliability,
system simplicity and structured processes. Nothing is left to chance in an environment where
tens to hundreds of millions of dollars may be lost if an outage were to occur. During this session,
we will discuss these keystones and how they are applied to our operation of Eaton’s data
centers. After the presentation, we will split into groups for a tour of the data center.

Time: Arrive: 5:45 PM Eastern
Dinner Begins: 6:00 PM
Dinner Continues with Presentation: 6:15 PM
