Montage is a technique in film editing in which a series of short shots are edited into a sequence to condense space, time, and information. The term has been used in various contexts. It was introduced to cinema primarily by Eisenstein, and early Soviet directors used it as a synonym for creative editing. In France the word "montage" simply denotes cutting. The term "montage sequence" has been used primarily by British and American studios, which refers to the common technique as outlined in this article.The montage sequence is usually used to suggest the passage of time, rather than to create symbolic meaning as it does in Soviet montage theory. From the 1930s to the 1950s, montage sequences often combined numerous short shots with special optical effects dance and music. They were usually assembled by someone other than the director or the editor of the movie. Wikipedia.

Montage, the leading provider of purpose-built video and voice interviewing solutions to the world’s most well respected brands, including 100 of the Fortune 500, congratulates the winners of Talent Board’s 2017 North America Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards. “We are thrilled to again find our clients recognized among this prestigious group and we applaud them for achieving these best-in-class ratings by job candidates,” commented Kurt Heikkinen, president and CEO of Montage. “It is a testament to their innovation in embracing voice and video interviewing technology and their commitment to providing the best candidate experience possible,” he added. Since the inception of the CandE Awards, several Montage clients have been among the winners. This year’s winners include Verizon, Humana, JetBlue, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Brown-Forman Inc., Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Colorado Springs Utilities, and Sharp HealthCare. “At Brown-Forman we have always pursued a richer interaction with candidates by engaging with them and delivering a better experience. The team at Montage has been helping us to do that since we began working together in 2010. This award is a validation not just of our candidate experience, but also of Montage’s success in helping us to deliver that experience over the past eight years,” said Arelis Correa, Director of Global Talent Acquisition and Onboarding at Brown-Forman. Winners were identified through a blind data analysis based on their job candidates’ satisfaction survey scores. To qualify, each company committed to a statistically significant candidate response rate, where the proportion of respondents not hired met or exceeded a set standard. Multiple factors in the data summaries were considered in the final analysis, however, three key questions had a significant impact on determining the winners. These questions focused specifically on the likelihood that the candidate would reapply to the organization, whether or not the candidates would refer other job seekers to the organization and the candidates overall ranking of their specific candidate experience. The 50 winners are organizations that received the highest positive candidate experience ratings. Along with the 50 CandE Winners, all employers participating in this year’s Candidate Experience Awards will be celebrated at the 2017 North American CandEs Symposium and Awards Gala, taking place on Monday, October 2, 2017 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn.

Current ECM process technology is limited in machining accuracy and process stability. The primary reason for this limitation is that the power supply units, which are at the heart of ECM are traditionally designed for the millisecond pulsed current range. Developing a power supply unit that has the capability of pulsing in the microsecond / nanosecond range, will result in more control of the process and better product, leading to improved uptimes on the shop floor and improved product quality. The SME partners in this project consortium have identified a commercial opportunity for a new generation of ECM that can offer: - Improved process stability and control - Increased accuracy (at a micron level) - Better process uptime and increased efficiency / outputs - Consistently better performing and better quality products - Shorter product development lead time This project will undertake the research and development work necessary to ensure that the SMEs in the consortium can realise this commercial opportunity through the development of a power supply unit (SMPS) that can support the next generation of ECM. The project aims to develop an SMPS that will deliver quicker electrical current pulsing rates in the microsecond / nanosecond range, resulting in an ECM with a machining accuracy better than 1 micron. The project will also develop a demonstrator / prototype that will be used for validating and demonstrating the next generation ECM. Based on research undertaken by CDAMC (in conjunction with SMPS manufacturers and suppliers), it is clear that power units in this performance range are currently not commercially available. The availability of a new generation of SMPS could result in a major step change in ECM capability and help sustain Europes leading position in ECM technology.

The present invention provides a wideband active balun LNA topology with narrow-band filtering and noise cancelling. The amplifier includes three transconductance stages, a feedback network, and a load. The first and second transconductance stages are connected in parallel to receive the input signal. The differential output of the first transconductance stage is fed back to voltage input through a differential-to-single-end-end feedback network, while the output of the first transconductance, passing through the third transconductance, is added to the output of the second transconductance stage in proper phase. The present invention accomplish both wideband low-noise amplification and narrow-band filtering without inserting interface stages, thereby improving the linearity and noise performance of the whole circuit. Noise cancellation technique is implemented in differential way to ensure the low noise figure. The present invention also achieves single-end to differential conversion with balanced output and superior second order linearity performance.
