:)
18:00
se6astian
so welcome to this weeks team meeting
18:00
se6astian
and the first since a month... with attendees!
18:01
se6astian
so like always please pm me now if you have things to report/say
18:02
se6astian
a big topic beside the reports is the naming scheme that was shared in emails already
18:03
RexOrCine
Everyone familiar with the challenge there?
18:03
Bertl
btw, there is an easy solution to the 'I'll wait for the Axiom IV' problem
18:03
se6astian
and todays meeting marks the inner circle that we want to use to find a final choice/decision
18:03
Bertl
just start with the highest number first and count down :)
18:03
se6astian
:P
18:04
davidak
Bertl: like canon? :D
18:04
RexOrCine
So the AXIOm Beta Submarine would be AXIOM Beta -I.
18:04
Bertl
better, for example, the Axiom Beta Googol :)
18:04
RexOrCine
AXIOM Beta Googol? AXIOM Beta Gargoil more like.
18:04
se6astian
see https://pics.me.me/xbox-xbox-360-xbox-one-xbox-one-x-xbox-one-23272016.png

18:05
RexOrCine
"I'm a CEO"
18:05
davidak
hahaha
18:05
se6astian
anyway, lets solve the naming as last topic
18:05
davidak
so al lot of mistakes to make
18:06
se6astian
davidak: wants to report about 34C3 plans first, please go ahead
18:06
davidak
At 32C3 (2015) Matthias Tarasiewicz (parasew) presented the apertus° project.
18:06
davidak
so i think we should participate and give an update on our development
18:07
davidak
since there should be a lot of people interested in open hardware and art
18:08
davidak
so i'm planning an assembly for apertus where we can demo an AXIOM Beta and talk about the project
18:08
davidak
the assembly is officially registered https://events.ccc.de/congress/2017/wiki/index.php/Assembly:Apertus
18:09
davidak
it would be nice if more community members will participate in the assembly
18:09
davidak
so we can have shifts
18:09
davidak
and have also time go visit other projects assemblies and talks
18:10
davidak
when you are interested, leave a comment here
18:10
davidak
https://lab.apertus.org/T713
18:10
davidak
or when you have ideas what we can do there
18:10
Bertl
sounds good
18:11
davidak
thats all from my side
18:12
se6astian
great, many thanks
18:12
se6astian
anyone else with topics?
18:12
Bertl
davidak: if you know the date and time, I can probably be available via phone to answer questions if required
18:12
RexOrCine
There's no dates in the thread.
18:13
Bertl
(or IRC of course ;)
18:13
davidak
it will be 27-30.12
18:14
se6astian
quick update from my side: currently at the assembly office creating a pcb cleaning machine that sways cleaning liquid left and right and that way splashes it on pcbs to be cleaned from an old 3d printer base
18:14
RexOrCine
Fixed thread.
18:14
se6astian
I made good progress with the full enclosure cad 3d model and started 3d printing first parts today
18:15
niemand
joined the channel
18:15
davidak
great
18:15
RexOrCine
Did you take pictures?
18:15
se6astian
not yet
18:16
se6astian
will continue the next 2 days
18:16
se6astian
other than that more of the same: more pcbs assembled, etc.
18:17
se6astian
right then lets get to the naming scheme!
18:17
se6astian
let me look at the current state of the google doc
18:18
se6astian
I am not entirely sure how we should proceed now, so I need your help
18:19
se6astian
there are some summaries, opinions and preferences marked in the google doc
18:19
davidak
i have no real favorite for the bigrig :/
18:19
se6astian
so far for ABII "Core" and "Compact" are most voted for
18:19
se6astian
for ABIII its a bit harder to judge
18:20
se6astian
beside "extended" with 2 votes everyone prefers something different
18:20
davidak
i tried to speak the names to get a feeling if it sounds good
18:20
davidak
and represents the model
18:21
se6astian
I would have loved to get many votes from people on the team mailing list
18:21
RexOrCine
Well maybe concentrate on abbreviations RE who things sound. Is anyone against using abbreviations?
18:21
Bertl
what are the plans to handle development (given there is some)?
18:21
RexOrCine
how*
18:21
davidak
so there are probably not many people reading
18:21
se6astian
Bertl: what are the plans to handle development (given there is some)? <- please elaborate?
18:22
Bertl
well, we have shipped about 10 different versions of the Axiom Beta Dev Kit so far
18:22
RexOrCine
"so there are probably not many people reading" There's not really much we can do about that David. An email was sent out, so...
18:22
Bertl
and I'm not talking about variations in the plugin selection
18:22
Bertl
the basic idea of the AXIOM camera was to keep it evolving
18:23
Bertl
we've done a pretty good job with that for the Beta Dev Kit so far, with about 30 revisions for most of the boards
18:23
davidak
so just use the hash of the gut commit :D
18:23
davidak
*git
18:23
RexOrCine
It should be noted that we're just talking about the names of the enclosures here essentially.
18:24
Bertl
maybe they will evolve too, no?
18:24
Bertl
(at least I hope so :)
18:24
se6astian
currently the hardware that goes into dev kit, ABII and ABIII is essentially identical
18:24
se6astian
but of course in the future there would be room to evolve into different directions here
18:25
RexOrCine
I had thought of that yeah. But how often would new versions of enclosures come around? Leading me to think that enclosure versions could be denoted by year e.g. AXIOM Beta CP 2019.
18:25
se6astian
but I would keep hardware and enclosure separated in the naming scheme also in the future
18:25
se6astian
if we for example decide to create an audio pcb, we could just call it AXIOM Audio Board V1 R1
18:25
se6astian
no matter into which enclosure it would go
18:26
davidak
and the current camera without enclosure is the axiom camera stack?
18:26
davidak
a stack of pcbs
18:26
Bertl
we currently call it the Dev Kit
18:26
RexOrCine
Without enclosure it's AXIOM Beta.
18:26
davidak
yes, sure
18:28
se6astian
correct
18:28
se6astian
rex rightfully noted that we should not call the skeleton an "enclosure" as it doesnt really enclose anything
18:28
se6astian
it just "holds together"
18:28
se6astian
so the dev kit has "no enclosure"
18:29
Bertl
I agree, never considered the skeleton an enclosure myself
18:29
davidak
same
18:29
se6astian
great, I think we all agree :)
18:30
RexOrCine
Something I said earlier "I love the idea of women's names. But pursuing that would draw out the decision making and it would also spoil things for any independents who might wanna design their own enclosures down the line." This is what leads me to prefer identity's like CP or EX or DK, because they're utility names really. I prefer the idea of leaving more elaborate names to the users.
18:30
se6astian
any reasoning for "Core" vs "compact", what are the pros and cons of both these options
18:30
se6astian
pro for compact
18:31
se6astian
1. it can be nicely abbreviated as rex noted with "CP"
18:31
davidak
- it's somewhat compact :D
18:31
se6astian
2. it refers to compact cameras which have similar form factor and design
18:32
Bertl
compact sounds 'small but feature rich' where core sounds 'only essential'
18:32
se6astian
3. it puts emphasis on the enclosure option being rather well "compact" as in small
18:32
se6astian
good point bertl
18:32
se6astian
any cons for compact?
18:32
Bertl
not saying that 'core' is a bad choice though
18:33
RexOrCine
I've tried hard and I can't really think of any.
18:33
se6astian
I noted that "compact cameras" as in photography cameras are much thinner (maybe 2cm) than what we want to call "compact" (7+cm) so it might backfire as joke...
18:33
davidak
as you said it's not that small like a compact camera
18:33
RexOrCine
Nah.
18:34
se6astian
another thing is that it might be directly associated with being a still camera
18:34
RexOrCine
Compact is a ubiquitous term for small technologies.
18:34
Bertl
maybe use a word describing the shape then ... like 'cube' or 'banana' :)
18:35
davidak
THE AXIOM BRICK
18:36
Bertl
likes it!
18:36
davidak
just a joke. a sony F55 looks more like a brick than our bigrig concept
18:36
se6astian
what happened to "toaster"
18:36
davidak
haha
18:36
se6astian
ah no thats already taken by the magic company
18:36
se6astian
ok any pros/cons for "core"
18:37
RexOrCine
First thing that comes to mind with me and core is apple core, something that generally gets disposed of. A lot of people eat apples. Itâs also synonymous with an electronic, internal component (Paul remarked on this at one point IIRC).
18:37
davidak
the camera is the core of a rig
18:38
davidak
what means it's the most important part
18:38
davidak
without a sensor you will have no image
18:39
RexOrCine
Aye but the camera is in all enclosures.
18:40
se6astian
core could in that sense be confusing that its exactly not the electronics that make up the core but an enclosure around core hardware
18:41
davidak
good point
18:42
Bertl
is there a reason to name the cameras different if there is the same hardware in all of them?
18:43
Bertl
(assuming there is of course :)
18:43
se6astian
its not the name of the camera but the enclosure we are trying to find
18:43
Bertl
so why not name them like we name other components like shields or plugins
18:43
RexOrCine
It's not the camera (AXIOM Beta) that's getting named, it's the enclosures i.e. AXIOM Beta Compact / AXIOM Beta Developer Kit
18:44
Bertl
i.e. Enclosure V1.0 R1.1
18:44
Bertl
Funny Enclosure, Big Enclosure, Compact Enclosure V1.x
18:44
se6astian
thats the idea
18:45
Bertl
and then have an Axiom Beta with Power Board v2.0 and Compact Enclosure v1.2
18:45
davidak
Compact Enclosure and Ergonomic Enclosure
18:45
se6astian
but as the enclosure is the "only" thing people see when they see a picture of the camera they associate the entire thing with that name
18:46
se6astian
internally I would just give whatever name we come up with for the enclosure Version and revision numbers
18:46
Bertl
well, we have to change that then
18:46
se6astian
and even subnumbers as multiple parts will make up any enclosure
18:46
davidak
same with computers for example. they have the same case but different specs
18:47
se6astian
basically we are trying to find names for PC products like "laptop" or "desktop" currently
18:47
se6astian
the insides are similar
18:47
se6astian
the form factor is different
18:47
se6astian
but everone just calls it "laptop"
18:47
RexOrCine
Exactly.
18:47
se6astian
and it doesnt really say what actual hardware is inside
18:47
davidak
so what are big cameras called on film sets?
18:47
RexOrCine
Rigs.
18:48
RexOrCine
(I think)
18:48
RexOrCine
Generally rigs.
18:49
se6astian
well the rig is the assembly of camera and other accessories
18:49
se6astian
there is no name for the camera other than "camera"
18:50
davidak
blackmagic design calls teir models "production camera" and "studio camera"
18:50
se6astian
also rather blurry names
18:50
Bertl
sounds like outside/everywhere and inside only to me
18:51
Bertl
(but I'm not a camera person :)
18:51
se6astian
those names reflect the featureset of the cameras a bit
18:51
se6astian
as the studio camera has no internal recording for example
18:51
se6astian
but lets not get into bm details
18:52
davidak
yeah
18:52
davidak
just an example
18:52
Bertl
maybe color encode the enclosures and use that ... the 'Axiom Beta Green' or 'Axiom Beta Blue' :)
18:53
davidak
so in what situations would you want a BETA III?
18:53
RexOrCine
Multiple.
18:54
davidak
to have everything in one (recorder, audio, ...)?
18:54
davidak
to have a havier rig for better ergonomy?
18:54
RexOrCine
Aye it's more about the extended features.
18:54
se6astian
color encode would work I guess, problem is that there is camera company called "red"...
18:55
Bertl
we do not have to use the color red *G*
18:55
RexOrCine
Not the best idea. People are colour blind.
18:55
davidak
you can't tell what the model blue is, so the name says nothing
18:55
Bertl
Pink?
18:55
se6astian
yeah using red as color code is off the table definitely but imagine we call the camera "blue", everyone will think its a knockoff from the camera "red"
18:56
davidak
we shoot on a blue epic :)
18:56
davidak
sounds stupid
18:57
RexOrCine
Oh right just the names. I though you meant actually colour code the enclosures.
18:57
Bertl
yeah, I mean color coding enclosures and using the corresponding name
18:58
RexOrCine
Keeping it literal it's about what it is, what it offers, and that's extended features.
18:58
davidak
i think we should only use very few color elements in our brand color
18:58
davidak
like the name badge
18:59
se6astian
meeting is 1h now, just mentioning so we keep the goal in focus :)
18:59
davidak
RexOrCine: then Compact Enclosure and Extended Enclosure?
18:59
se6astian
I think I favor "compact" over "core" now,
19:00
se6astian
the names should work together, compact/extended does
19:00
se6astian
how do you feel about core vs compact, what makes slightly more sense to you?
19:00
davidak
but extended enclosure doesn't fit well as AXIOM Beta Extended
19:01
davidak
i would now also prefer compact
19:01
se6astian
AXIOM Beta CP and AXIOM Beta XT ?
19:02
RexOrCine
I'd probably agree, for the reasons I outlined in the comments, but then, what does? Because 'Expansion' doesn't feel great either. So it starts to come down to whether or not we're comfortable with abbreviations.
19:02
davidak
why do we search for meaningful namen and then hide them?
19:02
davidak
we could try random characters and see what looks nice :D
19:02
davidak
XC PK QZ GG
19:02
RexOrCine
From comments:
19:02
RexOrCine
"On âExtendedâ and Arri XT - The shorthand for the word extended and extension is âExtâ in fact, so, we could abbreviate in the proper way and not overlap with Arri in that sense. On the subject of whether abbreviations should be used, it would probably come in useful. A good example of why can be found in this scenario âAbove: AXIOM Beta Extended recorder conceptâ - In this situation, which would be one of dozens, thereâs the i
19:03
RexOrCine
mplication of âExtended Recorderâ. If the abbreviation was used then âAbove: AXIOM Beta EXT Recorder conceptâ would be more readable."
19:03
se6astian
we do not hide them, but I also write MB when I mean AXIOM Beta Main Board in tables, lists, etc.
19:03
se6astian
so its good to know that the abbreviation works
19:03
RexOrCine
But then after what Sebastian said I started preferring EX instead of EXT. And I'm not keen on XT as it has Arri connotations
19:04
RexOrCine
Yeah abbreviations and full words would be useful in different situations.
19:04
davidak
i think we should have !Enclosure" in the name of the enclosure
19:04
davidak
to make it clear
19:05
RexOrCine
But with abbreviations it would be good that they weren't just random, like ZR or something.
19:05

19:12
davidak
just "Large Enclosure"?
19:13
RexOrCine
Extra Large Ribbed
19:13

hey Kjetil, welcome to the party
19:15
Kjetil
I couldn't help myself
19:16
davidak
we are searching names for our enclosure
19:16
davidak
AXIOM Beta heavy Enclosure
19:16
RexOrCine
Current favourite is AXIOM Beta Battenberg
19:16
RexOrCine
https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Battenbverg&t=hg&ia=images
19:17
Kjetil
AXIOM Supermassive Black(hole)
19:18
davidak
maybe a word that describes that it is larger than the "compact" but sill had beautiful details in design and high tech features
19:18
RexOrCine
Like Extended?
19:18
davidak
"large" is not really special
19:19
davidak
it's also quiet a simple word
19:19
davidak
i would like something more precise
19:20
RexOrCine
Extended?
19:20
RexOrCine
It's solid I know. I've been at it for three days.
19:21
RexOrCine
Thinking up names.
19:21
davidak
extensive
19:21
RexOrCine
Aye been there. Extended, Expanded, Expansion, Extension, you name it.
19:23
Bertl
misspellings and reduction are modern ... so that should be
19:23
se6astian
so how can we arrive at a viable choice?
19:23
Bertl
Xtended, Xpanded, ...
19:23
RexOrCine
The issue for me with Extended is what would we abbreviate it to?
19:23
Bertl
that's also something which could be trade marked :)
19:24
davidak
would you like the compact or extended enclosure?
19:24
RexOrCine
EX, EXT, or XT,
19:24
se6astian
it could also leave out the "ed" at the end to command users "Xtend", "Xpand" , etc.
19:24
RexOrCine
mmm
19:24
davidak
is something you could say
19:25
Bertl
Axiom Beta Xpand has definitely a special ring ...
19:25
se6astian
the abbreviation "XP" hasnt been used since windows and role playing games so that could work I guess
19:25
intrac
I like Arri's abbreviations - eg Alexa XT
19:25
se6astian
haha
19:25
se6astian
go home intrac :D
19:25
intrac
huh?
19:25
se6astian
na joking
19:25
se6astian
but we have been there
19:25
se6astian
some time ago
19:26
intrac
yeah, I've been reading :)
19:26
intrac
just giving my vote for that
19:26
RexOrCine
intrac is absolutely mad about abbreviations I know that for a fact.
19:26
davidak
i like EX, like the Sony EX-3
19:27
RexOrCine
Aaah. You had to ruin it davidak. Didn't think it had been done.
19:27
se6astian
"AXIOM Beta Xpand" or "AXIOM Beta Xp"/"AXIOM Beta XP" does indeed not look and sound too bad
19:27
se6astian
its not an abbreviation for sony though, its just EX
19:27
se6astian
FS
19:27
intrac
XP has too much of a tie to Microsoft
19:27
se6astian
etc
19:28
davidak
CT and XP
19:28
se6astian
windows xp is 16 years old, I think people are not associating it anymore
19:28
RexOrCine
You're having a laugh.
19:29
intrac
our government health service is still using it afaik...
19:29
Bertl
isn't XP discontinued and not updated since some time
19:29
intrac
MS only pulled the plug, what, a couple of years ago?
19:29
se6astian
yeah I think so too
19:29
intrac
and it's still used for embedded systems
19:29
se6astian
thats windows ce
19:29
intrac
and customers paying for custom support
19:29
davidak
Bertl: you can buy updates for a very high price i think
19:29
intrac
se6astian: no, fairly sure it's a variant of XP
19:30
intrac
for ATMs and such
19:30
RexOrCine
What you've done sebastian is you've done what I did when I first thought of AXIOM Beta Myro. Give it a little while.
19:30
Bertl
Myro?
19:30
RexOrCine
Then you'll be back to AXIOM Beta Battenberg like the rest of us.
19:31
davidak
haha
19:31
RexOrCine
Bertl don't.
19:32
Bertl
Battenberg sounds okay to me ... better than Biscuit or Sausage
19:32
RexOrCine
I'm 'this' close to turning it to orange in my choices.
19:33
RexOrCine
Added another row in doc for abbreviation prefs.
19:34
Bertl
but keep in mind, if you go with Axiom Beta Caramel, you can abbreviate to ABC :)
19:34

19:34
davidak
they call the F55 "compact camera"
19:36
RexOrCine
Think they call pretty much everything a compact camera.
19:36
RexOrCine
Caramel camera on the other hand, that's a patent.

meeting close to 2h :)
19:45
se6astian
can we do it!?
19:45
se6astian
can we find it!
19:45
se6astian
THE name?
19:45
RexOrCine
Extended?
19:45
se6astian
Xtended
19:45
se6astian
or xtend
19:45
RexOrCine
Phwar.
19:46
RexOrCine
Xtend is a verb.
19:46
RexOrCine
Extend sorry.
19:47
se6astian
totally different idea: "reel" as in film reel and because the recorder looks like a magazine?
19:47
RexOrCine
I honestly don't think it's a good idea to copy Arri on the abbreviation front.
19:47
RexOrCine
There may even be legal issues.
19:49
se6astian
"Extended"/"EX" to the vote then
19:49
se6astian
who can live with it
19:49
se6astian
who cannot live with it?
19:50
RexOrCine
We may just have to live with it.
19:51
RexOrCine
It feels better than AXIOM Beta III: Shoulder Mounted
19:51
se6astian
agreed
19:53
se6astian
and it works together with "compact"
19:53
RexOrCine
Yep. And AXIOM Beta Compact feels better than AXIOM Beta II: Production Ready.
19:54
davidak
i don't like abbreviation here, we have already enough strange words in our name
19:54
RexOrCine
We could abbreviate Compact with C, but it might be nice if we can keep a theme of two letters going for versions.
19:54
davidak
it should be something that explains exactly what it is
19:54
davidak
like compact case
19:55
davidak
and extended case
19:56
RexOrCine
It's gonna be abbreviated though David, because if we don't the names are gonna be awkward in some sentences. Shouldn't imagine they'll be abbreviated all the time, basically when we have to to make sentences sound alright.
19:57
se6astian
we will try to use the full name in our articles and co
19:57
se6astian
starting to edit the TT13.2 article now
19:57
se6astian
have to leave the office soon
19:57
RexOrCine
Another note was, I asked Sebastian if we would actually label the enclosures with these names. So, would we label the enclosures with the names or the abbreviations?
19:57
davidak
and i have to sleep. up since 29 hours
19:58
RexOrCine
Well done for making the meeting man.
19:59
davidak
a totally different thing i noticed: we started making modular cameras, now everyone else does. but we now build a huge brick. why?

19:59

just for the picture
19:59
Bertl
davidak: keep it below 8 days/ 200 hours and you should be fine :)
20:00
davidak
mondays are always hard when work starts again
20:02
se6astian
RexOrCine should we add a paragraph to the TT article about the new names
20:02
se6astian
I replaced them all in the text/headers now
20:03
RexOrCine
Oh definitely. Then probably refer C5D to it, then they can translate the message how they like.
20:03
RexOrCine
In.
20:04
se6astian
right
20:05
danieel
davidak: F55 is a compact one compared to F65 :)

intrac: it is not ce, but Windows POS, a version of XP which still receives patches. You can turn XP into that, for this reason.. I run a computer this way
20:35
Bertl_oO
that's hardly a reason to run Microsoft Windows ...
20:36
danieel
that old OrCAD 10 wont run on anything else :) but Altium is getting the same features now.. well it too just 15 years to get on par :P
20:36
danieel
*took
20:38
intrac
danieel: yep, that's what I thought. Couldn't remember the POS acronym
20:45
jarhab[m]
a question that appeared while reading the naming sceme discussions: do we have a list of all boards / hardware components with name and revision?
20:47
jarhab[m]
and can the microzed enumerate all the boards, that are attached? (so we could build a axiom-ls tool, that lists boards with revisions)
20:51
Bertl_oO
all but the first generation power boards are equipped with some kind of storage (mostly eeprom) to hold this information, so the hardware for enumeration is there
21:01
jarhab[m]
cool
21:01
jarhab[m]
but the list is currently not there?
21:01
Bertl_oO
no
21:01
jarhab[m]
ok
21:02
jarhab[m]
btw: I would vote for AXIOM Beta L[arge] and AXIOM Beta S[mall] :)
21:02
jarhab[m]
what is currently in the EEPROMS?
21:02
jarhab[m]
and how big are they?
21:03
Bertl_oO
nothing and at least 256 bytes but typically four times as much
21:03
jarhab[m]
ah cool
21:04
jarhab[m]
maybe we could write a url to a machine readable description
21:05
jarhab[m]
are they all connected to a common bus like i2c or something similiar?
21:05
niemand

21:06
