#33538 Technology Developments - Computer Worms and Viruses (Run time 10 min.) DVD $49.95

Computer bugs are no mere prank. A disruption of global communications networks by today's sophisticated worms and viruses is costing companies billions and can do lasting damage to the world's economic health. This NewsHour program begins by defining these binary invaders and then examines the escalating security challenges of keeping networks free of infection. Members of the Computer Emergency Response Team at Carnegie Mellon University and other white hats discuss proactive ways to detect and then block electronic intruders through single-user protocols and enterprise-wide defenses.

#5511 Technology Developments - Telecommunications (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

In our day and age, what could be easier for a father than to pick up the telephone and call his daughter-in Europe, say. And yet, as this program shows, before reaching its destination, his call travels some 45,000 miles...in 12 seconds! This program is concerned with electromagnetic waves, by which most telecommunications are transmitted, and with geostationary satellites, essential links in the world communications network. (23 minutes)


#5535 Technology Developments - Communication Techniques (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

The communication tools in our everyday lives are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Some, like photocopiers, have already become indispensable. Others, like the cellular telephone, are gaining ground rapidly. Researchers have even developed computer systems that will transcribe typewritten text into speech and conversely recognize the human voice. This program demystifies these three technologies, explaining how they work and what their potential uses might be. (23 minutes)


#5627 Technology Developments - Global Communication (Run time 23 min.) DVD $89.95

This program looks at the highways of optical fibers, copper wires, coaxial cables, and satellites by means of which images, sound, and computer data are transmitted around the world. It also examines telecommunication satellites which-whether they are geostationary or in orbit close to Earth-enable us to put two people on Earth, at sea, or even in the air, in contact. The program concludes with a look at cable distribution systems, which no longer serve only for broadcasting television programs but are being used to consult huge data banks and service bank transactions. (23 minutes)

By analyzing the growth, revenue, and future of MP3's Web site, visiting Ford's online "showroom," and showcasing the customer benefits of Coronet-Fashion at Work's online planning system, this program presents compelling case studies of the Internet's use to capture and exploit new markets. (30 minutes)


#33536 Technology Developments - Technological Development in Business (Run time 30 min.) DVD $89.95

Without adopting new technological developments, a company's profits will lag; with them, they can soar. This program uses two case studies-Ford and Australia Post-as they introduce very different types of technology in their respective organizations. Can these companies hope to maintain sales, market share, and profit if they are not in a position to exploit the latest technological advancements? (29 minutes)
