The Impact of Ambient Video on People
Ambient Video is a new, emerging trend in internet video
Ambient Video in Relation to the Art of Cinema
Ambient Video will most likely attempt to replicate or serve as an extension of the aesthetics of cinema. It will certainly call for a more pictorial visual style and lead to more utilization of cinematic techniques (e.g., split screen, visual layering, high tech transitions, etc.). In addition, this new visualization technique will most likely become useful to people when it is recognized as a new form of electronic cinema.
Is Ambient Video an Experience in the “Foreground” or “Background” Perception of the Viewing Audience?
The question of how Ambient Video relates to the constant immersion visualization technique is still under strong debate. For example, when people go to the movie theater in a darkened room, the moving pictures are in the foreground of our cinematic experience. In the seclusion of a darkened theater, the viewing audience loses itself and becomes immersed in the world of the film. Because of this insulation from the real world, the viewing audience responds to the moving pictures on the “big screen” as if they were actually human. People display their inner feelings and emotions as they watch a movie. They cry and laugh as well as exhibit sadness, happiness, fear, and even get angry as they watch films. As a result, the moving pictures and accompanying sounds of a motion picture place heartrending images in people’s minds and enter closely into our very being. However, in contrast with the “foreground” cinematic experience, the commonplace television in our homes typically plays in the “background” (not the “foreground”) of our living rooms. Thus, a quick glance, a more concentrated look, or even a deeper immersion are all factors to consider in determining whether or not Ambient Video will ultimately be a “foreground” or “background” experience for people.
Many future trend experts believe that organizational leadership will embrace a consumer level application of Ambient Video by make moving images appear as a living painting with high cinematic quality providing a relaxing, visual experience. In the future, professional applications of Ambient Video will most likely take place when
