PGA Tour partners with Red Hat, CDW on Linux media asset system

Filed under
Linux

Linux is a godsend for many, including those obsessed about the professional breakup of Tiger Woods and former caddie Steve Williams.

Recently, the PGA Tour Entertainment division implemented a new media asset management system based on Red Hat Linux and Viz Ardome that will allow users to find specific video clips in seconds, as opposed to hours, and also allows them to edit and move the clips much cheaper than analog video.

The PGA Tour — which stages hundreds of tournaments per year, releases player stats and scores and distributes media to news outlets including the Golf Channel, CBS, NBC and others — has been migrating its proprietary servers to Red Hat Enterprise Linux for some time, said Jonas Gredenhag, manger of datacenter operations for the PGA Tour.

    It offers a convenient, KF5 and Qt5-based GUI coupled with a QML image view to browse, view, and download images hosted in two of the most famous Danbooru boards (konachan.com and yande.re).
  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
