3M Videodisc, les « LaserDisc Surprise »

Par Pierre Dandumont

Régulièrement, je vois passer des LaserDisc avec un pochette un peu bizarre, qui porte le nom « 3M Videodisc ». Et en cherchant un peu, je me suis rendu compte qu’il s’agit de « LaserDisc Surprise ». Je m’explique.

Pendant longtemps, le LaserDisc a été utilisé comme source principale dans pas mal d’endroits pour de la vidéo de qualité. Le rendu reste nettement meilleur que les VHS, et les disques valaient moins cher que les les cassettes. De plus, le LaserDisc a l’avantage de ne normalement pas s’user avec le temps (oublions le rot). Du coup, on trouve assez régulièrement des disques custom, visiblement produit en petite quantité. Ce ne sont pas des LaserDisc enregistrables, mais simplement des disques classiques produits pour un usage précis. Ils fonctionnent dans des lecteurs standards et on en trouve par exemple sur eBay actuellement (et là aussi). Si vous avez de la chance, une étiquette indique le contenu de façon explicite (c’est le cas des deux que je possède). Dans le cas contraire, il va falloir essayer de les lire.

La pochette classique


Vu sur eBay


Vu sur eBay


Vu sur eBay (de la musique)

J’ai donc deux disques. Le premier contient des trucs institutionnels/business sans grand intérêt, sur deux faces. Le second est plus intéressant : il s’agit des vidéos qui étaient diffusées dans les magasins de Disney. L’étiquette donne la date : Noël 1993. La vidéo est d’assez bonne qualité, et il s’agit essentiellement d’extraits de films Disney avec un peu de karaoké, des gens en costume et même une partie sous-titrée. Ça dure une heure (c’est du CLV) et je n’ai évidemment pas pu le mettre sur YouTube, mais Vimeo semble plus souple sur les droits…

Pas très intéressant


Intéressant


Des sous-titres CC

Petite particularité, le LaserDisc ne propose qu’une seule face. La seconde est visiblement en plastique ou recouverte d’un vernis opaque (je ne sais pas trop). La structure semble montrer qu’il n’y a pas de dead side ici.

La face lisible


Et l’autre

En tout cas, c’est toujours amusant de découvrir ce que contiennent les disques de ce type. Et de temps en temps, on trouve même des choses plus étonnantes, comme des vidéos présentées dans des attractions ou des « pré-show », les vidéos passées sur des écrans dans les files d’attente dans les parcs.

Philips Living White : compatibles Hue et HomeKit

Par Pierre Dandumont

Il y a de nombreuses années, j’expliquais que les Living White de Philips, des ampoules basse consommation, fonctionnaient sur un pont Hue. A l’occasion d’un déménagement, j’en ai profité pour (re)tester.

Les Living White dont des ampoules basse consommation, donc au mercure. Elles s’allument moins rapidement que des LED, consomment plus (20 W selon mes mesures) mais éclairent un peu plus (1 200 lumens annoncés). J’avais des ampoules de ce type quand les Hue coûtaient vraiment très cher, en B22 (baïonnette, mon ancien appartement était équipé). A l’époque, ce n’était pas dans le plan marketing de Philips, mais elles utilisaient déjà le ZigBee comme les actuelles.

Une ampoule Living White en B22


Un adaptateur B22 cheap. N’achetez pas ça

L’ajout est un peu compliqué, en fait. Elles n’ont pas de numéro de série visible, je ne connais pas la méthode de reset (s’il y en a une) mais iConnectHue (7 €) et sûrement d’autres logiciels permettent de connecter les lampes. Il faut en fait passer par la technique TouchLink. Elle nécessite d’approcher la lampe du pont (moins de 30 cm) et de faire une détection précise. Une fois que la lampe est ajoutée par iConnectHue, elle apparaît dans l’application Hue… et dans HomeKit. C’est plutôt une bonne nouvelle : les ampoules d’autres marques ne le font pas.

La méthode


L’ampoule détectée


Et dans HomeKit

Les Living White ne permettent que le réglage de la luminosité (comme des ampoules Hue basiques) et il est possible que Philips décide un jour de ne plus les supporter, mais pour le moment ça fonctionne. Bien évidemment, les avantages des ampoules en question sont moins évidents en 2019. J’avais payé ~40 € pour trois ampoules B22 en 2014 (7,5 £ pièce), à une époque ou une Hue Lux, moins efficace, valait ce prix là. En 2019, on trouve des Hue standards à 20 € en temps normal, et pour un peu moins en promotion.

Echo Wall Clock, l’horloge « connectées » d’Amazon

Par Pierre Dandumont

Récemment, j”ai acheté un produit Amazon Echo un peu particulier : l’Echo Wall Clock. Cette horloge « connectée » évite en effet un truc parfois un peu énervant : le réglage de l’heure.

L’horloge murale vaut 30 €, se connecte en Bluetooth à un appareil Amazon Echo (vous devez en posséder un) et sa qualité est correcte, sans plus. Avec son fond noir et ses aiguilles blanches, elle est très lisible, mais elle n’est pas protégée par une vitre, par exemple. Elle nécessite quatre piles AA (fournies) et je n’ai pas encore pu tester la durée de vie. Vu la consommation habituelle d’une horloge de ce type et la connectivité choisie (Bluetooth), ça devrait tenir longtemps.

La configuration nécessite de passer par Alexa, et ça prend un peu de temps : l’Echo va la configurer, la mettre à l’heure, et le système va tourner seul pour se régler. Elle doit être à moins de 9,1 mètres d’un Echo (la valeur est bizarre, c’est celle de la doc’) et il va falloir garder l’Echo. Sur l’horloge, on a une LED qui indique les éventuels problèmes : du bleu pour les réglages, du rouge si les piles sont vides, etc.

Le point intéressant de l’horloge, en dehors du réglage automatique (on en reparlera au prochain changement d’heure), vient de la fonction minuteur. Quand on demande à Alexa de lancer un minuteur, l’horloge s’illumine avec des LED. C’est assez efficace et très pratique pour déterminer quand la fin d’un minuteur arrive et ce n’est ni trop lumineux ni trop intrusif.

Dans l’absolu, et si jamais l’autonomie est bonne, c’est un bon produit. La finition est correcte, ça évite de devoir décrocher l’horloge pour la régler, etc. Elle est aussi silencieuse (pas de tic tac énervant), ce qui est un plus, mais a le défaut de ne pas avoir de trotteuse. En fait, dans mon cas, son principal défaut est de nécessiter l’utilisation d’un Echo, qui doit être proximité, et donc de passer par Alexa.
