I started a new gig working on the ground crew for an aerial photography team.
We do most LPGA and PGA golf tourneys, so our "season" is just beginning.
Here's some shots of a couple of ThinkPads "in the field" at the LPGA ANA inspirational, held two weeks ago at the Mission Hills Country Club in Palm Springs, CA.
First, a W520 doing real time RF spectrum analysis of the signal from the camera in the air.
This machine was built from spares, a T520 lid with 1920 x 1080 display. Quad i7 with 16 gig of ram, 256 gb mSATA ssd and 1 tb data drive.
Next, the W520 and an X61 tablet that monitors a hex antenna array. The gear on the left is the receiver and the mpeg4 encoder.
Last, me hard at work (not). a real fun gig.
I'm off today for the LPGA LOTTE Championship at Ko Olina Golf Club in Kapolei, Hawaii. Should be a good trip.
Got some great comments from the network crew about the ThinkPads. There's still a lotta love for them out there.
