Technical Notes

Development and Platform

This web site has been developed using Microsoft® Visual InterDev 6.0 and follows the Document Object Model. It incorporates Active Server Pages 2.0 technology and uses VBScript for scripts run on the server. It uses ASP and JavaScript for client-side scripting, especially for the DHTML (Dynamic HTML) elements. A number of the pages are built dynamically with file includes. Some file includes are used to keep the code modular and available to all pages when needed. Such modular files include JS files for omega replica watches JavaScript, headers and footers that are shared, and small snippets of text that may be used by two or more pages or by two or more other file includes. Internet Explorer 6.0 is highly recommended.

 
Graphics

This site is graphics-intensive. Nearly all of the images have been scanned from press release material or captured from video tape. The capture process snaps extremely large images, which are reduced and enhanced using Paint Shop Pro 6.0 from JASC. Because some of the video resources were not first generation recordings, a number of the images appear grainy with "video bleed." It has been noted throughout the site when such is the case. The capture card is a WinTV card from Hauppauge with proprietary software for capturing video, audio, and stills.

Video

Video was captured using a Hauppauge WinTV card with proprietary software. The video format is Intel Indeo튉 video 5 with corresponding audio format as PCM. Video clips were built using Asymetrix Video Producer v.4. They were fully compressed using the tiny freeware tool AVIEDIT from Microsoft. This site also uses "streaming" media in that the video files can begin playing before they are completely downloaded to your machine. One of two tools was used to build the ASF streaming media files, depending on the quality of the final output. These tools are the Windows Media On-Demand Producer v.4 from Sonic Foundry and Windows Media Encoder v.4 from Microsoft.

 
Audio

Audio was captured and built using Cool Edit Version 96 from Syntrillium Software.

 
Enhancements

This site makes use of numerous external web enhancements.

Credits
