Standing on the shoulders of giants :)

Thanks to the awesome +Kivy developers (and so many more of course) we were able to quickly draft a dailies viewer app which syncs to our web service and runs on 4 of our iPads. This is what our cameraman and the director uses to review the shots and what is used as a tool for assuring continuity.

In case you can't read my bad handwriting on the slate :P It is supposed to read:

"thank you kivy devs" !!

ButtleOFX is an interesting  project to watch. OFX plugins support in free software used to be only available in Ramen, and that project is still on hold.

NEW PRODUCT – UBEC DC/DC Step-Down (Buck) Converter – 5V @ 3A output
http://www.adafruit.com/products/1385

Your power supply problems just got SOLVED! This little circuit board may look tiny but inside is a high efficiency DC/DC step-down converter which can output up to 3 Amp at 5V without the need of any heat-sink or forced cooling. (It does get a bit toasty at 3A though) UBEC stands for “universal battery eliminator circuit” and this UBEC is designed to replace a 5V supply in RC planes and ‘copters but its also great for any kind of microcontroller or electronics project that runs off of 5V. We tried a half dozen different ‘BECs and found this one to be the best in terms of range and stability. You can check the technical tab for the analysis of input/output range and current draw.

To use, connect 6V-23V to the shorter, thicker wires and 5V will be generated on the thinner, longer wires. You’ll get 5V (+-5%) regulated output from 6 – 23VDC input. 3A output current, 5A peak – if you’re trying to draw 3A you’ll need to give it a little more than 6V though, 7V works well. The UBEC has built in filter capacitors on the input and output, but its a switching supply so its a little noisy compared to a linear regulator.

We pulled the heatshrink off of one and found an MP2307 you can check the datasheet for conversion efficiency and other specifications.
