BLUE 4:1. Which animal did Eadweard Muybridge use in his high-dollar bet to prove his theory regarding Persistence of Vision?a. Dogb. Birdc. Horsed. Snake
c. horseEadweard Muybridge- He developed a more efficient shutter mechanism for the camera, and by using a battery of 12 cameras he was able to produce 12 sharply defined consecutive images of a galloping horse, all taken within half a second.It was readily apparent that if such a sequence of pictures were viewed in rapid succession, the motion of the horse or other subject would be reproduced. Muybridge mounted the silhouettes of the horse on a glass disk, which was rotated and projected onto a screen through a device invented by the photographer and called a ‘zoopraxiscope’. This was first demonstrated to the public in 1880, in what some would claim to be the first moving picture.

BLUE 4:What does the prefix "kineto" in kinetograph mean?
The prefix "Kineto" means "to move."The Kinetoscope is an early motion picture exhibition device. Though not a movie projector—it was designed for films to be viewed individually through the window of a cabinet housing its components—the Kinetoscope introduced the basic approach that would become the standard for all cinematic projection before the advent of video: it creates the illusion of movement by conveying a strip of perforated film bearing sequential images over a light source with a high-speed shutter. First described in conceptual terms by U.S. inventor Thomas Edison in 1888, it was largely developed by his employee William Kennedy Laurie Dickson between 1889 and 1892. Dickson and his team at the Edison lab also devised the Kinetograph, an innovative motion picture camera with rapid intermittent, or stop-and-go, film movement, to photograph movies for in-house experiments and, eventually, commercial Kinetoscope presentations.
BLUE 4:Which of the following was NOT a name of one of LoneyGirl15's youtube videos?A) “My Parents Suck”B) "Such a Jerk"C) “Peace Offering”D) “To Hell with Bree’s Dad”
B) "Such a Jerk"Lonelygirl15 focused on the life of a fictional teenage girl named Bree, whose YouTube username was the eponymous "lonelygirl15." However, the show did not initially reveal its fictional nature to its audience. After the fictional status of the show was revealed in September 2006, it gradually evolved into a multi-character series including both character videoblogs and action sequences, with a complex story universe involving "trait positive girls" who are sought by an evil organization called "The Order".Lonelygirl15 first came to international attention ostensibly as a "real" video blogger who had achieved massive popularity on YouTube.Lonelygirl15 debuted on YouTube posing as a real 16-year-old video blogger with the eponymous username. At first, the videos covered normal, everyday subject matter, as the title character dealt with typical teenage angst, but quickly morphed into a bizarre narrative that portrayed her dealings with secret occult practices within her family and included the mysterious disappearance of her parents after she refused to attend a "secret" ceremony prescribed by the leaders of the family's cult.

BLUE 4:Who, in 1922, created a image scanning system while still in High School?a. Philo T. Farnsworth b. Paul Nipkowc. Thomas Edisond. Leroy Jenkins
a. Philo T. Farnsworth Philo T. Farnsworth- Although he made many contributions that were crucial to the early development of all-electronic television, he is perhaps best known for inventing the first fully-functional all-electronic image pickup device (video camera tube), the "image dissector", the first fully-functional and complete all-electronic television system, and for being the first person to demonstrate such a system to the public.[3][4]
BLUE 4:What was the first type of television created?
Answer: MechanicalMechanical television--tv system that used mechanical or electromechanical devices to capture and display images. However, the images themselves were usually transmitted electronically and via radio waves. The reason for the dual nature of mechanical television lay in the history of technology. The earliest mechanical television components originated with 19th century inventors, with 20th century inventors later adding electronic components as they were created. Mechanical systems were used in television broadcasting from 1928 to 1939, overlapping the all-electronic era by three years.

BLUE 4: What did the Lumiere brothers contribute to the development of the motion picture?A. They invented the kinetoscopeB. They used a big screen to project moviesC. They invented the motion picture camera that shot at 24 pictures per secondD. None of t
B. They used a big screen to project movies-Auguste Marie Louis Nicholas Lumière (1862-1954) and Louis Jean Lumière (1864-1948) worked in the still photography industry, and it is there that they focused most of their efforts for most of their lives. However, like everyone and their brother towards the end of the 19th century, they also took a few years to develop a motion picture recording and projection system. In 1894, they bought out an unpaid patent for the term cinématographe, originally filed by one Léon Bouly, which they then applied to their own device.-The Lumière brothers are remembered today as the fathers of cinema because of a perfect storm of good luck. Films of Louis Le Prince in France and Max Skladanowsky in Germany were shown prior to the Lumière brothers’ famous exhibition on December 28, 1895, in the Salon Indien du Grand Café in Paris, and Thomas Edison’s kinetoscope was also well known. Though by no means the first to do any one thing, the Lumière brothers arrived on the scene at a time when motion pictures were on the mind of the public, and they did so with a device that was practical (a single unit for both recording and projecting) and attractive (using perforated film for smooth animation and true projection, rather than a peephole device).
