Singularity Design Celebrates 10 Years of Design Excellence

Singularity Design is proud to commemorate its first ten years of high-end professional design by giving away an Apple iPod Photo. Singularity has been providing distinctive design solutions to companies and organizations across the country since 1995.

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 - Singularity Design is proud to commemorate its first ten years of high-end professional design by giving away an Apple iPod Photo.

Singularity Design was founded in March of 1995 by entrepreneur Jeff Greenhouse with the goal of providing high quality graphic and multimedia design services. In 1996 Singularity expanded into the new medium of website design, bringing the same level of style and attention to detail from print and identity design into interactive and web design. As the importance of maintaining a web presence increased, Singularity proudly served numerous clients both in Philadelphia and across the country, including such notable names as Omaha Steaks, Covad Communications and Crown Cork & Seal.

While many of the beneficiaries of Singularity's expertise have been businesses and corporations, the company is most proud of its long history of support and involvement with not-for-profit entities. The American Red Cross, the University of Pennsylvania, LibertyNET and the American Cancer Society are some of the entities that have utilized Singularity Design to further their communication, fundraising and development efforts.

In recent years, Singularity has expanded its service offering to provide a full range of online and interactive solutions including database development and web application programming, interactivity via Macromedia Flash and, more recently, Flash-based games providing a wealth of branding and marketing possibilities.

In order to celebrate this important milestone, Singularity Design is giving away a 30GB Apple iPod Photo to one winner, drawn at random from those who register at http://www.singularitydesign.com/?ql=anniversary by May 1, 2005.

As Singularity enters its second decade, the focus remains on creating effective, compelling designs and treating each client as an individual with unique needs and goals.

Atair Aerospace Becomes the First Company in the World to Demonstrate Flocking and Swarming Capabilities on Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

For the first time in history, autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have flown using flocking and swarming algorithms. “Flocking and Swarming” are two words used interchangeably to refer to modeled flight that is biologically inspired by the flight of flocking birds and swarming insects.

BROOKLYN, NY (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- “For the first time in history, autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have flown using flocking and swarming algorithms,” reports Daniel Preston, chief executive and lead engineer for Atair Aerospace, Inc. (Atair AS).

“Flocking and Swarming” are two words used interchangeably to refer to modeled flight that is biologically inspired by the flight of flocking birds and swarming insects. The capability of biological systems to autonomously maneuver, track and pursue evasive targets in a cluttered environment is vastly superior to any engineered system.

Atair AS is pioneering the development and implementation of flocking and active collision avoidance algorithms on UAVs. Atair AS’ technology was first tested December 16–18 in Eloy, Ariz. where two fleets of five Onyx™ systems were airdropped and successfully flocked in tight formation to target. Onyx systems are autonomously guided parafoil systems (UAV gliders) designed to allow military cargo to be parachuted from high altitude and horizontal stand off and land accurately on target. Atair AS developed the Onyx system under contract with the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center - Natick. Onyx systems can be dropped at up to 35,000 ft altitude, autonomously glide for 30+ miles, and land on a preprogrammed target—accurate to about 150 feet.

The importance of flocking and active collision avoidance towards the application of precision resupply is critical. With this technology multiple systems (50+) can be deployed in the same airspace, guiding to one or multiple targets without possibility of mid air collisions.

Atair AS’ inventive technology has advanced the state of the art in guidance and control systems. This technology will open the door for advanced autonomous flight capabilities on a variety of UAV platforms from fixed wing to rotorcraft, with applications from sensor and munitions delivery to surveillance.

Atair Aerospace, Inc. is a Brooklyn-based defense company dedicated to modernizing military and industrial airdrop techniques through its range of innovative autonomously guided parachute systems and UAVs.

Vocal Technologies To Introduce Ultra-Low Cost ATA Designs

Selection of Reference Designs Include Highly Reliable VoIP ATA at $6.00 Unit Cost; Full Motion IP Videophone ATA Design at $30.00 Unit Cost Also Now Available

Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) March 31, 2022 -- Vocal Technologies, Ltd. today announced it will be demonstrating a new range of high performance, ultra-low cost Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) reference designs. Among the products to be introduced are breakthrough voice and full-motion videophone designs so cost-effective, they allow suppliers and/or service providers to offer resulting equipment at little or no cost to end users.


Vocal’s use of unique, patent-pending algorithms allows equipment suppliers to leverage DSP (Digital Signal Processor) resources, thereby eliminating the need for an additional RISC processor. The reduced component count results in significant savings; Vocal’s 1x0 ATA, for example, boasts a Bill of Materials (BOM) of just $6.00 per unit, while a full-motion videophone ATA can be manufactured for just $30.00 per unit.

“Vocal is re-defining the ATA field, making VoIP cost effective for both suppliers and end users,” said John Blume, CEO of Vocal Technologies. “We believe innovative ATA technology that radically reduces manufacturing cost is a key to enabling the new age of widespread VoIP. Once manufacturers and service providers examine these groundbreaking designs for themselves, the potential for accelerated VoIP roll-out will become evident.”

Vocal’s design portfolio also includes a 2x2+1 solution that supports two telephone lines, two Ethernet ports and a PSTN life-line port for automated voice service switching in case of a power outage or network disconnection.

All Vocal products use the rapidly emerging IP telephony standard Session Initiation Protocol (SIPv2) as well as multiple advanced codecs to optimize ATA performance.

Pride Communication Services, #1 Reseller of Krusell Leather Cell Phone Cases, to Begin Selling Identity-Theft Conscious Horizontic Plus Cell Phone Case in April

To Better Accommodate the Needs of Today’s Identity Theft Conscious Cell Phone Users, Pride Communication Services (PCS), a Subsidiary Franchise of KaseIT and the Largest Reseller of KRUSELL Leather Cases, Announced Today that it Would Begin Selling the Horizontic Plus Cell Phone Case, KRUSELL’s Newest Offering, In its Online Store in April.

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2022 – Pride Communication Services (PCS), the world’s largest Krusell reseller announced that in an effort to better accommodate the needs of today’s telephony users concerned with both identity theft and style, they would be introducing the Horizontic Plus, an innovatively designed horizontal cellular phone case with extra pockets for SIM and memory cards in their online store in April.


Just when you thought cell phones couldn’t get any more accessorized, Krusell has introduced its newest and most innovative product to date. The Horizontic Plus, a hand-crafted leather case which features an unusual but practical horizontal design, also has built in safety features for today’s GSM users. With rising concerns about identity theft in today’s hi-tech world, the case although appealing in design, also caters to anxious consumers concerned that by losing their much valued SIM and memory cards, they also risk losing the private and personal information stored on those cards to people with ulterior and ingenuous motives.

According to Anthony Croucier, President and CEO of KaseIT Inc, “The Horizontic Plus was designed to be unique and trendy but still keeps in mind the fact that users often have multiple SIM cards which store a large portion if not all of their private information; losing these cards essentially means that they would be risking the exposure of large amounts of their valuable, personal information to complete strangers.” That’s why the Horizontic Plus features four specially designed holders for convenient storage of cell phone SIM and memory cards. Additionally, the Horizontic Plus features a new belt-loop design for ease of attachment to the user’s belt without having to remove the belt, keeping the case and the cell phone securely in tact even when on the run.

PCS has made it easy for users to get their hands on the latest in Krusell products through the convenience of their online store. The Horizontic Plus along with the hundreds of other Krusell products offered can all be accessed through their easy to navigate online store and customer service number.

Mydeo Brings Streaming Technology Home

A new online service provides the missing link for home moviemakers and small businesses. Mydeo makes it easy and cheap to share your videos over the Internet with family, friends and customers.

(PRWEB) March 29, 2022 -- British entrepreneurs are launching a new service aimed at taking video streaming technology into the mainstream.

“Mydeo provides the missing link for home moviemakers and small businesses” says co-founder Cary Marsh who set up the company following a grant for technical innovation from the Department for Trade and Industry’s Small Business Service (SBS) programme that looks to encourage innovation in England. “So many homes have broadband access, digital cameras and experience in sharing photos that video is a natural step. People spend hundreds of pounds on digital video cameras, then the footage stays on tapes on shelves - people should be showing the footage off! Streaming technology is by far the best way to do this but until now there has been no service available that makes proper streaming technology accessible and affordable for home moviemakers”

While the business to business streaming market was burgeoning, with Investor Relations webcasting emerging as the killer app, the words ‘consumer’ and ‘streaming’ in the same sentence would have analysts and investors running a mile.

Mydeo believes that in 2005, with the accelerating uptake of broadband, the time is now right and there is a space for this technology in the hearts of the consumer but, crucially, as the content owner and publisher rather than as the pay-per view customer.

Traditionally, buying streaming media hosting has been a painstaking process. For the SME it might mean calling up salespeople at networks and negotiating quotas of storage and bandwidth. This would normally be coupled with an obligation to sign up for many months service in order to get the right price. For the home moviemaker the options were limited – try to find a biz-to-biz service selling packages at affordable prices, or try an ‘online album’ service where you can upload your videos along with your pictures and invite your viewers to visit the album site to see your footage with no guarantee of quality.

“Mydeo however, is about giving the user the ability to do the entire process online and then the freedom to do what they want with the links to their movie files.” Commented Marsh. Mydeo users can upload and pay online then simply generate a link to their file to do with as they wish. This allows users the freedom to put links to files on their own websites or in emails etc. The site also offers tools for those new to streaming; such as creation of a customised HTML emails, and automatic generation of code for embedding files in web pages.

Mydeo uses the Speedera content delivery network (CDN) for global storage and delivery together with Speedera’s secure streaming product to guarantee security for Mydeo users’ content. This means that the humble home video maker can enjoy the quality and reliability of a world-leading delivery network, which they would never have been able to purchase as an individual.

The Mydeo payment model is also simple, and unique in that there is no reference to megabytes or gigabytes of storage or delivery. Mydeo users pay to upload their movies based on the length of the clip and the number of viewers they expect. For example, Mydeo’s basic package, ideal for friends and family, is £3 per minute of video and the file can be viewed up to 200 times. As Cary points out “If you sent a one minute video taken on your mobile phone to a friend’s mobile it would cost you almost £3 to deliver to just one person!“.

Businesses too can benefit from the easy-to-use service, where rates work out still well below the usual cost of hosting contracts. For example Mydeo’s high package offers up to 10,000 views for £75 per minute of video – ideal for viral marketing campaigns and online advertising.

“Our goal when creating the Mydeo website was to design and build for the consumer, that means using navigation and design styles that consumers are familiar with from using their favourite sites” Says co-founder Iain Millar, who’s background has been in delivering award winning websites for blue-chip companies. “This does not mean the site is not suitable for the SME – it just means it’s simple and intuitive for everyone to use. We built the site to take the user from start to finish online. Users can therefore upload their material, make a secure payment, generate their own code and links, and view their statistics online - content can go from your camera to the other side of the world in minutes.”

“The response to the service and the feedback has been great so far.” Says Marsh “Based on this feedback we are already looking at introducing new packages later this year including packages for additional formats such as Quicktime as well as higher resolution packages for streaming rushes or other content that requires higher definition viewing”

About Mydeo
Mydeo was founded in 2004 by Cary Marsh and Iain Millar. In April 2004 Mydeo won the Research & Development grant for Technical Innovation from the Department of Trade and Industry's Small Business Service, which aims to encourage innovation in England. Mydeo provides streaming video hosting for home and small business users. The site provides simple online tools that help users upload, pay for, and distribute videos to friends, family, customers and prospects, as well as live statistics to track how popular videos have been.

The 102-page iPodlounge Buyers' Guide 2005 (Spring/Summer) is now available for free download by all of iPodlounge's over 2 million readers.

iPodlounge – the world’s leading independent resource of iPod information – has released for free download its updated 2005 compendium of iPod and iPod accessory reviews. The iPodlounge Buyers’ Guide 2005 is an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) magazine version of the popular iPodlounge website, www.ipodlounge.com, the acclaimed iPod user community named one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites in 2004. You can download the Guide at www.ipodlounge.com/buyersguide/.

“Last year’s holiday Buyers’ Guide was heralded as the best iPod resource available anywhere,” said Jeremy Horwitz, Editor-in-Chief of iPodlounge.com and the Guide. “and we’ve outdone it for our Spring/Summer issue. In one fast download, readers get a complete guide to all things iPod: concise summaries of the over 300 iPod reviews we’ve authored since the 2001 release of the iPod, plus exclusive first looks at new accessories such as the first iPod FM radio tuner and improved LCD-based FM transmitters.”

iPodlounge has covered the iPod since its quiet release in 2001. “The growth of iPodlounge has been staggering,” said Lloyd, reflecting on the site’s repeated doubling of its membership every six months. We’re the only major publication that has reported on the iPod platform since before it was a phenomenon and kept up with the introduction of every new iPod and accessory. That’s why iPodlounge today remains Google’s number one-ranked independent iPod site.”

The 102-page Buyers’ Guide includes a wide-ranging collection of iPod news, previews, reviews, and features. Among the Guide’s highlights are:

CompAmerica Opens its PC-Giants.com Portal, Offering Over 250,000 PC & Consumer Products at Exception Discounts, for Those Wanting Lowest Prices and Top Puality Products

In conjunction with famed CNET.com, CompAmerica has opened a new electronic discount b2b, b2c computer and consumer electronics store, PC-Giants.com. The new portal is said to be designed to make it far easier for shoppers in corporate America and consumers to find computer products at low prices, backed by exceptional service offerings.

(PRWEB) March 28, 2022 -- CompAmerica's new PC Giants store (http://www.pc-giants.com also known as "PCG" for short) does many things it says are unavailable from giant retailers and b2b companies like Best Buy, Tiger Direct and CompUSA.

Janice Drescher, a company marketing spokesperson, met with industry trade publications on Monday to demonstrate some of those features.

MS. Drescher Reviews http://pc-giants.com

"In opening pc-giants.com, CompAmerica has built a very unique enterprise whose prices for PC hardware and software, LCD TVs, Cameras, Accessories, Add-ins, and Memory are lower than virtually all of the other major retailers and e-tailers. We're selling First Run PC Products, that means: instead of left-over or out of date products as found in most stores, pc-giants.com provides products that are literally right off the shipping dock of the original manufacturer(s)."

"pc-giants.com has over 1000 brand names from which to choose: from IBM to Microsoft to Red Hat to HP to Cisco to CompAmerica to Xerox to Zoom to 3Com to Intel. pc-giants.com has tens of thousands of products that you can add-in to your favorite Dell, Micron, Toshiba or about any other brand PC, Laptop or Server. pc-giants.com has a Memory Configuration Tool (top left on every page) that allows you to select any product, and price and size memory panels for that product almost instantly. All you do is let your fingers do the talking."

"pc-giants.com was designed in such a way as to make it very easy to find what you want. It has well over a quarter million different products in the store. And finding these products is as easy as Google."

"One simply presses search after entering a product by brand name or manufacturer or by the brand name manufacturer whose PC product you want to add it to, or by model, or by type, or you can search by Category. Then, once you are in the general area you want (it will tell you how many choices), one simply drills down using pull down choices which we pre-fill in for you so you know what the choices are related to your original search. You can save whatever you find in favorites lists, and compare products two or more at a time. And for each product, we also provide a link that we fill with related products. So if you find a printer, you can also link to it's toners, cables and paper trays, without getting lost."

"Every product has a general summary, a detailed product specification, and color pictures. And, we offer you best pricing and live availability so you always know if we have it in stock, or how long it will take before we do."

"Opening an account is trivial, simply provide us basic information and you're in! From then on you get your own PC-Giants Desktop to use."

"And we provide a shopping cart that is so easy it phenomenal. We keep records of your purchases, price quote requests and RFPs, any warranties or extended warranties, and all your shipping traffic. You can find out when it will get to you, and how to get it fixed if it ever breaks, and look at your expenditures on a daily, weekly or month at a time basis."

"And, on most products, we also provide Extended Warranties that are so inexpensive, it's really quite amazing!"

"Industry analysts have believed for a long time, that a practical approach to companies, government and individuals buying systems, components, communications devices and consumer electronics across the web, when done properly, is the least expensive and most reliable means to determine what product to buy."

"But today," added Drescher, "too many companies are simply liquidating excess and left over inventory, or undesirable models at reduced prices. That leads to shortened lifespan, and mediocre component performance. We have created a portal where you can obtain literally any product there is right from a short supply line that leads back to the manufacturer directly. You needn't worry that the product isn't original, each one is. And unlike our competitors, we stand behind the products with unlimited 24x7 Tech Support by phone and web, onsite installation service around the globe, return and repair assistance, and exceptional site design."

General Information
http://pc-giants.com is an original CompAmerica electronic computer store designed to facilitate provisioning of companies and individuals with the latest computer and consumer technologies. The company indicated it would be continuing to expand it's store with additional brands, such as it's recent addition of HP and COMPAQ Direct products, and products from hundreds of other companies.

CompAmerica.com is a computer manufacturer and contract services provider, who also offers an enormous repertoire of products through pc-giants.com so that it's customers can buy better products for less, and get support for them, said a company spokesperson.

"We do not have faith in most retailers and in most of our competitors, since they simply do not provide technical support the way we do, and since they do not go onsite to install and service systems and components the way we do. We provide anything from remedial service to high level consulting with our products. We believe everyone should. There's been a steady brain drain in the computer industry and it reflects in the clumsy way most businesses are forced to buy and use computer technology: their IT guys are at a singular disadvantage," said company president Dr. Jack A. Shulman.

He added: "We intend to change all that by raising the standard to nothing less than fully supportive consultative service, 24x7 tech support and onsite installation, service and remediation. It's the only way we can help Corporate America and individuals use technology the way it was meant to. And then, computers will truly serve business, government and the individual, rather than hanging around their necks like a 'wounded albatross'."

"We also support long term replenishment agreements, which include supplying software, networking and hardware for an entire business, installing and maintaining and upgrading it, and replacing it with next generation editions, right through the pc-giants.com store. We can keep an entire enterprise in tip top shape, no matter who their vendor is, even if it is a vendor whose products are not listed," added company vice president John R. Davis, "We know our customers can no longer afford to keep excessively large staffs around to maintain systems, and don't want to have to distract their own efforts trying to keep pace with Microsoft, IBM, or any other major brand. That's our job, and we believe we do it better than any other company in the world."

CompAmerica.com is located in Cranford, NJ and supplies products from 36+ warehousing locations around the USA and Canada. The company also manufactures PCs in New York State and California, Laptops in California and New Jersey and Server products in Indiana and California, in addition to distributing other brands through pc-giants.com.

The company can be reached at 888-275-2771, or on the web at http://compamerica.com.

It also offers extended warranties up to 3 years on most of the products it sells through pc-giants.com, and offers facilities insurance programs to provide for catastrophic loss, bonding and surety.

pc-giants.com is a trademark and service mark of CompAmerica.

New Excelsior JET 3.7 Focuses on J2SE 5.0 and Parallelism

Excelsior JET 3.7 enables software developers to improve performance and hinder decompilation of their Java applications by converting them into optimized native executables running directly on hardware. This release focuses on J2SE 5.0 API support, parallel execution on multi-CPU systems and code performance improvements.

Novosibirsk, Russia (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Excelsior, LLC, a Russian vendor of software development tools, has announced today the general availability of the latest edition of its flagship product, Excelsior JET 3.7. Designed to improve performance and hinder reverse engineering of Java applications through ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation, Excelsior JET now supports the latest version 5.0 of the J2SE API, and its new runtime library is optimized for execution on parallel hardware.

About Ahead-Of-Time Java Compilation
Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compilation, the distinctive core feature of Excelsior JET, enables developers to maximize performance of their Java applications by transforming them into conventional binary executables that run directly on hardware. At the same time, Excelsior JET fully supports Java dynamic class loading facilities through provision of a redistributable Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler, so it is a complete Java Virtual Machine implementation.

A nice side effect of AOT compilation is the application's improved resistance to reverse engineering, achieved without the performance penalties inherent to Java bytecode obfuscation.

New in Excelsior JET 3.7
Based on customer feedback, support for J2SE 5.0 API enhancements is the most anticipated feature in Excelsior JET 3.7. Excelsior engineers have also made numerous achievements in application performance over the previous version, particularly in string handling and data processing involving 64-bit operations, such as encryption.

Excelsior JET 3.7, Professional Edition introduces a new runtime library that is optimized for parallel execution. It enables concurrent memory-intensive applications, such as Java servers, to fully utilize the computing power of today's multiprocessor systems and the upcoming dual-core chips.

"Historically, we have been positioning Excelsior JET as a solution for acceleration and protection of desktop applications and low-end Java servers," said Dmitry Leskov, Excelsior's Director of Marketing. "But our customers have discovered that it may be used, with much success, to improve the throughput of their large-scale enterprise Java applications, and demanded better support for high-performing multiprocessor hardware."

The new Excelsior JET runtime library is available in three flavors tuned for different application types and hardware configurations:
- The Desktop Runtime is optimized for use in applications typically running on conventional desktop and notebook computers, such as rich clients.
- The Workstation Runtime is best suited for technical client applications such as visualization and engineering design, which often run on high-end workstations.
- The Server Runtime enables highly concurrent server-side applications to make the most of multi-CPU servers.

The runtime library found in the previous versions of Excelsior JET is also available under the name of Classic Runtime.

Visit http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetlatest.html for the full list of new features and changes in Excelsior JET 3.7.

Excelsior JET 3.7 System Requirements and Interoperability
The minimum hardware requirements for Excelsior JET 3.7 are Pentium III 800MHz CPU, 256MB of RAM, and 200MB of disk space, with to 650MB extra required temporarily during setup. 512MB of RAM is recommended for compiling J2SE 5.0 projects. Graphical tools need display resolution of 1024x768x256colors, otherwise command-line tools may be used.

Excelsior JET 3.7 for Windows runs on Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 98. Excelsior JET 3.7 for Linux requirements are 2.4 level kernel, glibc 2.2.5, and either LinuxThreads 0.9 or NPTL 0.29, or higher versions. Excelsior JET 3.7 interoperates with Sun Java 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition, versions up to and including 1.5.0_02.

For details, see http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetsysreq.html

Availability and Pricing
Excelsior JET 3.7 is available today. To download a free evaluation copy, please visit: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetdleval.html

Excelsior JET is priced per developer seat, and can be purchased directly from the Excelsior Web Store at: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/store/ and through authorized resellers. List prices range from $150 for Excelsior JET, Standard Edition with no service contract to $3,375 for a bundle that includes both Windows and Linux version of Excelsior JET, Professional Edition plus one year of Premium Support and Maintenance services.

A gadget cunningly disguised as a car alarm remote clandestinely switches off television sets by the simple press of a button now exists. Getting your hands on one of these and going for a pint could yet again become the social event that it was forty years ago – before the art of conversation was overcome by wide-eyed silence punctuated by disjointed applause and laughter.

The gadget with a moral dimension has a name with a biblical ring, and like the parting of the Red Sea it will silence the attention sapping scourge in any public area. When activated, the universal remote control with a mission will spend about a minute flashing out 209 different codes to turn off televisions, attacking the most popular brands first. There is an American-Asian model and a US, Asian & European one, using different codes.

This Super Universal US, Asian & European Remote Control offers Safe. Effective. Fun. Hangs on your keychain.

Directions for using your Super Universal US, Asian & European Remote Control:

Point it at a TV set Press the button (no need to hold the button down).

Keep pointing it at the TV until the TV turns off which may take up to 69 seconds).

Super Universal US, Asian & European Remote Control is very much like any other tv remote control. It is harmless to televisions. It is harmless to humans and other animals (in fact, it is quite beneficial, since it turns televisions off).

Ambient Devices Launches Wireless DataCasting Kit

Ambient and Microsoft lead the trend to display glanceable information.

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Ambient Devices today announced the launch of the DataCasting Kit, radically simplifying the ability for consumer products companies to embed Internet information in their products. The DataCasting Kit, about the size of a matchbox, may be embedded into virtually any product enabling it to receive wireless signals from the nationwide Ambient Information Network.

Innovative companies, including home appliance manufacturers, furniture makers or even apparel designers will use the wireless Internet DataCasting Kit to launch products that display various types of online information, such as weather forecasts, stock trends, traffic congestion or health information.

“Ambient’s differentiators include coverage and costs,” said Alan A. Reiter, president of Wireless Internet & Mobile Computing consulting. “The Ambient Information Network represents one of the largest, if not the largest, datacasting networks in the United States. The large number of transmitters in Ambient’s mature wireless network typically provides better coverage and in-building penetration than an FM subcarrier network like Microsoft MSN Direct.”

David Rose, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Ambient Devices, says, “The DataCasting Kit is a quantum leap forward for manufacturers to quickly and affordably embed Internet information in a new product, be it a clock radio, MP3 player, refrigerator, car, or clothing. Over the course of 2005 and 2006, dozens of companies will be using the DataCasting Kit to prototype and launch new products.”

Distinguished Engineer Dick Berry, IBM User Engineering, said glanceable technology offers an intriguing way to integrate information into the user's physical environment. “Initial setup and ongoing configuration will have to be extremely simple — as easy as setting the time on a clock. It will be interesting to watch the adoption rate of these devices over the coming months.”

A beta version of the DataCasting Kit was used by a large white goods manufacturer to rapidly prototype an Internet connected kitchen appliance. “Within three days the product was receiving and displaying data from the Ambient Information Network.” says Ben Resner, Co-Founder and VP of Technology at Ambient.

The Ambient DataCasting Kit is now available. Please go to www.ambientdevices.com for more information.

Datacasting: A backgrounder

What is Datacasting?
Today, many consumer electronics manufacturers and major retailers want to deliver products which seamlessly use data from the Internet to offer enhanced functionality and services. The big question is: How will clock radios, watches, refrigerators and mobile devices receive Internet data?

The answer is datacasting. Think of it like a radio signal for many of the devices in your life. The data is already there, your devices just tune in.

Who are the major players in the datacasting space?
There are two companies today that are the most active in providing datacasting products and services: Ambient Devices and Microsoft Corporation through MSN Direct.

Ambient Devices, founded in 2001 as a spin-out from MIT’s renowned Media Lab, has pioneered the market for ‘glanceable’ devices – products which convey important information at-a-glance. Ambient Devices enables the physical environment to become an interface to digital information. Ambient has created a platform for developing these applications, as well as producing their own line of ambient products.

In May 2002, the company launched the best-selling Ambient Orb, named in the NY Times Magazines "Year in Ideas." Today the Ambient Orb, and Ambient Devices’ four other products are available in over 50 retailers including Neiman Marcus, the Museum of Modern Art, Amazon and Brookstone stores. This past holiday season, Radioshack Corp. debuted the Ambient powered Wireless Weather Forecaster, a $99 weather station that displays 5-day weather forecasts directly from Accuweather.com.

All Ambient products are bundled with wireless service for no monthly charge. Additional personalized channels are available for a small monthly fee.

Microsoft’s first product to use Datacasting was the SPOT smart wristwatch, announced in January 2003 and launched with licensing partners Fossil and Suunto in January 2004.. These watches deliver Internet data feeds similar to those offered by Ambient Devices – all on your wrist. The Smart Watch requires a service fee of approximately $10 per month.

Ambient and Microsoft are both pioneering what the research community calls “ubiquitous computing.” Ubiquitous computing is the global trend towards a lifestyle where the machine to machine delivery of important information is seamless and easily available -- requiring no keyboard, mouse, or computer screen. Instead, Internet data will be available to at-a-glance, from dozens of simple, everyday devices.

What infrastructure is used for Datacasting?
Both Ambient and Microsoft see a vast market for embedding Internet information in everyday objects, including wrist-watches, lamps, cars and clothing. Yet the technologies used by each company differ in important ways. The most important difference is the mechanism for sending data around the country.

Ambient leverages satellites and a frequency-aligned network of over 2000 pager transmitters redundantly broadcasting a wealth of data from the Internet. Each device on the Ambient network can receive signal from more than one tower, reducing dead spots and allowing the network to cover over 90% of the US population.

While standard paging technology carries some transmission costs, the company has overcome this issue through a proprietary micro-packetization algorithm (patent pending) which eliminates monthly service fees for broadcast data.

Microsoft uses FM radio subcarriers, which can listen to a single FM radio station antennae at a time. While Ambient’s datacasting network can listen to multiple towers overlapping to improve wireless coverage, the MSN Direct network must rely on existing FM radio station antennas in non-overlapping capacity. FM stations aren’t able to construct additional transmitters for the sole purpose of improving their data broadcasting coverage.

About Ambient Devices
Ambient Devices is radically changing how people receive information in their daily lives. Ambient extends the reach of digital information to a new category of wireless products using light, meters, and motion to communicate at a glance. Using technologies developed at the MIT Media Lab combined with principles of cognitive psychology, everyday products tune into a nationwide wireless network to keep you in touch with the information that matters to you most.

WEEE Directive – Is Your Business Prepared?

A new free service has been launched to help businesses co-ordinate both the disposal and acquisition of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) across the UK.

(PRWEB) March 24, 2022 -- Under the EU's WEEE Directive, from August 2005, all UK businesses will be required, by law, to re-use and recycle 100% of their end-of-life electrical equipment. Failure to comply with this legislation will result in a fine or even imprisonment.

“The first problem businesses will encounter when trying to comply with the legislation is to find a WEEE recycler that matches all of their individual requirements. This could take days of searching for, and contacting recyclers for quotes. Our new and unique systems allow businesses to reduce search time to minutes rather than days.” – Lee Sykes - Director of Operations

The WEEE Recycling Directory is a unique website that contains two main areas. The first is the directory of WEEE recyclers across the UK and the second is the WEEE Tenders & Collections section.

The WEEE Recycling Directory ensures that users can quickly search for a recycler in their area by specifying the type of equipment, such as IT Equipment, Fluorescent tubes etc. and the location from which it is to be collected. Other specialist criteria can also be stipulated, for instance, to donate the equipment to charity or the requirement to wipe hard disks to military standards.

Visit http://www.weeedirectory.com for the latest information regarding how to comply with the WEEE Directive and to search for a WEEE recycler in your area.

Notes to Editor:
1. The WEEE Recycling Directory aims to provide a central resource and service for WEEE. To benefit both businesses and recyclers and to provide an environment where the recycling business can grow.
The WEEE Recycling Directory website is maintained by LJS Media, an independent organisation that creates website services. This enables LJS Media to offer the WEEE Recycling Directory service with no bias to any recyclers or businesses, enabling a business searching for a service to obtain the most competitive quote possible.
2. All of the services on the website are free of charge. The website is paid for through advertising.

Electric Pocket Updates Ringo, Ringtone Manager for Treo Smartphones, and Announces New "Vocal" Caller ID

Electric Pocket's Ringo application, the best selling ringtone manager for palmOne's Treo-brand smartphones, has been updated with new features that allow users to more quickly identify incoming callers and customize their user experience with high-resolution icons that leverage the vibrant screens of Treo 650 smartphones.

Wye Valley, UK (PRWEB via MobilityNewswire) March 22, 2022 -- Electric Pocket’s Ringo application, the best selling ringtone manager for palmOne's Treo-brand smartphones, has been updated with new features that allow users to more quickly identify incoming callers and customize their user experience with high-resolution icons that leverage the vibrant screens of Treo 650 smartphones. Further, the company announces EPSpeak, an add-on to Ringo that identifies incoming callers with a voice that verbally announces the caller’s name.

Since its inception, Ringo has enabled users to associate a picture or assign a ringtone to a caller or group of callers within the smartphone's Address Book. In response to requests from Ringo users, the newest version of Ringo allows users to add pictures for all incoming callers (regardless of whether or not the caller is listed in the Address Book).

Another new feature of Ringo permits its "Friends" function to use multiple phone numbers for each contact. Since most contacts in an Address Book have multiple phone numbers (work, home and mobile), this new feature makes it quicker to assign ringtones and pictures to a caller by not having to repeat the process for each phone number.

For those who want to be the "coolest" Treo user on the block, Electric Pocket’s new vocal caller ID is an essential Ringo add-on. For only US$9.95, Ringo users can identify incoming calls with a voice announcing the name of the caller, coupled with a personalized ringtone and on-screen graphic. Ringo’s voice feature gives Treo users the opportunity to be among the first to have such a vocal ID feature, regardless of the type of mobile phone being used.

"Ringo was the first Treo ringtone manager to associate pictures with callers, the first to enable users to assign favorite MP3 tunes to friends and family, and now the first to verbally identify callers by name," said Iain Barclay, Electric Pocket’s Chief Product Officer. "We enjoy being first out of the block with new smartphone products because that means our customers can be first to 'wow' their friends with features they won’t find anywhere else."

About Ringo
Ringo enables Treo smartphone users to establish customized ringtones or MP3 tunes and assign photographs to specific callers or caller groups. When the Treo user receives a new call, the incoming caller can be identified both by a customized ringtone and a picture or other icon. Ringtones can be installed from an SD card, purchased and downloaded "over the air" via a link to a dedicated online ringtone store, or composed with Ringo’s innovative Ringtone Mixer. Ringo is available from Electric Pocket’s web site at http://electricpocket.com for US$29.95.

Computer Donations and Recycling in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

The toxic time bomb of obsolete computers is being tackled by a new program. Electronic Recycling Association (E.R.A.), a non-profit organization. Convenient depot locations have opened throughout Edmonton to collect old computers for donation and recycling.

(PRWEB) March 22, 2022 -- Managing director Bojan Paduh, a young entrepreneur from Calgary said: "E-waste is the fastest-growing type of waste thrown out by corporations as the IT industry updates products faster and faster. A new PC is now obsolete in two years and millions of them end up on landfill waste sites each year."

Every computer contains about four pounds of lead and small quantities of deadly cadmium and mercury. Other hazardous materials used in computers include hexavalent chromium, PVC plastic. All of these contribute to the poisonous cocktail of heavy metals found on landfills.

E.R.A is launching a program associated major computer and electronics retailers in Edmonton. Locations such as The Brick, WestWorld Computers, BCOM, Acrodex, and many more will be participating in ERA’s depot program. Organizations and individuals can now conveniently drop off their old computers at any of the participating locations, for donation or recycling.
For a complete list of participating locations, please visit the ERA website at www.era.ca

The ERA has many depots around the city that are accepting items, and is also offering a pickup and disposal service to any company. For the next few months, all collections of computer equipment will be done at no charge to companies wishing to donate their old computers.

E.R.A has various solutions for disposing of old PCs. Recent PC's can be given to people who cannot afford new ones, such as elderly and poor, job training tools to the unemployed, or sold to developing countries. If PC's are too old to be reused, Electronic Recycling Association will pass them onto companies specializing in dismantling them and recovering many materials including small amounts of precious gold, silver and copper.

E.R.A's priority is to reuse as many PCs as possible. Mr Paduh explained: "Reuse means the hazardous materials are not being let loose to do their worst and less new raw materials need to be extracted from the earth to make the next generation of computers and other electronic goods.

Research and Markets : Examination of the Market for Advanced PWB

Research and Markets (researchandmarkets.com/reports/c14000) has announced the addition of Technology and Market of Advanced PWB to their offering.

(PRWEB) March 18, 2022 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c14000) has announced the addition of Technology and Market of Advanced PWB to their offering.

A printed wiring board (PWB) is the foundation both literally and figuratively for virtually all electronics in the world. It is the platform upon which electronic components such as integrated circuit chips and capacitors are mounted. The PWB, or printed circuit board (PCB) provides both the physical structure for mounting and holding electronic components as well as the electrical interconnection between components. A PWB consists of a non-conducting substrate (typically fiberglass with epoxy resin) upon which a conductive pattern or circuitry is formed. Copper is the most prevalent conductor, although nickel, silver, tin, tin-lead, and gold may also be used as etch-resists or top-level metal. There are three types of PWBs: single-sided, double-sided, and multilayer. Single-sided boards have a conductive pattern on one side only, double-sided boards have conductive patterns on both faces, and multilayer boards consist of alternating layers of conductor and insulating material bonded together. The conductive layers are connected by plated through-holes, which are also used to mount and electrically connect components. PWBs may also be either rigid, flexible, or a combination of the two (rigid-flex).

When the electronic components have been mounted on the PWB, the combination of PWB and components is an electronic assembly, also called a printed wiring assembly (PWA). This assembly is the basic building block for all larger electronic systems, from toys to toasters to telecommunications.

These electronic systems, in turn, support every other critical technology in the United States. To quote the Council on Competitiveness from their 1991 Gaining New Ground report, "Electronic components are playing an especially important role in driving improvements in information and communication technologies, which in turn are enabling advances in all manufacturing and service industries."

PWBs play a crucial role in these improvements because advances in electronic packaging and interconnections reduce the size and cost of electronic devices while boosting performance. Progress in PWB technology and manufacturing drives U.S. competitiveness in both existing products and new technologies. The U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Japanese Ministry of International Trade and Industry, and the European Community all include electronic systems and components on their critical technology lists.

The following areas are discussed in depth inside the report:
(1)Latest technological trends of advanced PWBs such as Stack Press Multi-layer (SPM), Filled via Stacked Via, all layers IVH Construction, Embedded.

(2)Trends in the PWB market and analysis to the PWB industry based on detailed survey. The analysis covers each manufacturer’s sales amount based on PWB processing technologies such as RCC-type/PP-type and application such as cellular phones/PDAs. A standard cost of an advanced PWB in the market is also surveyed.

(3)Trends in the market based on application such as cellular phones, digital still cameras (DSC), PDAs, flip chip BGA package substrates and multi chip modules (MCP).

(4)Detailed Analysis of 40 major PWB manufactures that covers each marker’s Production and technical trends based on processing methods and application.

Company Morphs Failed Consumer Electronics Product into an Open Source Educational Kit

Things don’t always work out as planned. Once Zan Oliphant, founder of Seattle area garage startup Zanware, realized he couldn’t find investors to mass-produce his company’s in-wall TCP/IP PC controller, he decided to open up the entire product for the education and hobbyist market. “Investors want to make money, but engineers like me want to make cool things – we just didn’t see eye-to-eye on that,” said Oliphant.

Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Things don’t always work out as planned.

Once Zan Oliphant, founder of Seattle area garage startup Zanware, realized he couldn’t find investors to mass-produce his company’s in-wall TCP/IP PC controller, he decided to open up the entire product for the education and hobbyist market.

“Investors want to make money, but engineers like me want to make cool things – we just didn’t see eye-to-eye on that,” said Oliphant. “When a prominent local businessman asked me what real-world problem our generic TCP controller solved, I didn’t have an answer for him – it’s generic right? It can solve many problems,” added Oliphant.

Sitting on about ten thousand dollars worth of parts, and thousands of engineering hours in hardware, software, and firmware design, Oliphant decided to open the entire project to the public through SourceForge, and Zanware’s company web site.

“Since the initial product never got out of the prototype stage, it works great for an educational kit – that’s because the parts are easily soldered together by hand. We spent many weeks documenting the assembly process – you can check that out our on our web site, there are over 100 pictures, and more than 50 pages of text."

"Plus, we’ve open sourced all 10K lines of our firmware, and 30K lines of our server software – you can even download full schematics, board layouts, bill of materials, and datasheets – talk about geeking out!” explained Oliphant.

These shelf-top controller kits receive user input from an optical encoder with attached knob, an infrared receiver with included remote control, a temperature sensor, and a light sensor. Input is immediately packaged and sent to the PC server for processing. For output, or information for the user, the controller provides a 128 by 64 pixel graphical LCD, status LED, and small beeper.

“Think of these controllers as terminals to your personal computer. Through TCP/IP, the controller talks to server software running on your PC. Our server software, through the use of XML, provides a powerful menu system that lets you control a variety of local media, Internet based media, home automation, and other such tasks,” explained Oliphant.

Through the use of XML and Jscript modules, the Zanware server software allows users to easily add and change features.

Currently shipping with the product is support for Internet Radio, Internet TV, Media Player, Internet Explorer for web browsing, digital pictures, Power Point presentations, HomeSeer home automation, RSS feeds, and animated GIFs.

The server software leverages the power of Microsoft Windows Graphic Device Interface (GDI), and builds each LCD screen first in a small 128 by 64 pixel window. Once the screen is built, it’s shipped out to the network for display on the controller’s LCD. This all happens within milliseconds.

About Zanware
Zanware was founded in September of 2003 to create a line of products that provide a low cost, generic, and simple interface to remotely located computers.

Westec InterActive Selects the Voice Tracker™ Array Microphone for Enhanced Audio in Retail and Restaurant Audio/Video Surveillance and Operations Audit

Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio for audio/video monitoring. Enhanced audio is especially important for Operational Audits, enabling clear reception of conversations between employees and customers.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- Westec InterActive, the leader in interactive remote security monitoring for convenience store, retail, restaurant and other business applications, today announced that it has selected Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker™ array microphone to be used for enhanced audio in retail and restaurant audio/video surveillance applications. The decision was made after it was tested in several Circle K, 7-Eleven and McDonalds sites that have Westec interactive security systems.

“Acoustic Magic’s Voice Tracker array microphones proved to be very effective in recording conversations in settings where there is a lot of background noise, such as convenience stores,” said Michael J. Upp, Vice President, Business Development for Westec InterActive. "The Voice Tracker™ reduced the background noise from air conditioners, fans, and other equipment, improving the sound quality of recordings at the stores."

The Voice Tracker’s unique technology locates the region where the conversation is coming from and electronically steers a “listening beam”, like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering, and “noise” from other parts of the room is not picked up.

“The ‘listening beam’ allows our Operational Audit Specialists to clearly hear conversations between employees and customers. This helps monitor customer service levels and accurately report findings back to our customers,” says Upp.

Acording to Acoustic Magic, its Voice Tracker™ microphones are effective in reducing background noise by utilizing both spatial filtering and digital noise reduction. They also have improved sensitivity by constructively adding the outputs of the 8 individual microphone elements in the array.

“Westec InterActive was the first company to recognize the potential of the Voice Tracker as a surveillance microphone in convenience stores,” said Bob Feingold, CEO of Acoustic Magic. “We’re pleased to have our technology used by Westec, the leader in remote access security.”

About Westec InterActive"
Westec InterActive, the pioneer of interactive security and remote monitoring, delivers an integrated solution that answers the concern of employee safety, as well as key business operational issues such as shrink, employee turnover and inventory control. Our innovative nature allows us to take a comprehensive approach to security and remote site management.

Billy Graham Training Center Cove Chapel Utilizes SLS International's Ribbon Technology

Religious Organizations Continue to Embrace Company's Cutting-Edge Sound Systems

Springfield, MO (PRWEB) March 17, 2022 -- SLS International (OTCBB: SITI) announced today that B & R Audio has selected and installed multiple SLS speakers as part of the audio system renovation at the 170-seat Billy Graham Training Center, The Cove's Chapel.

"The chapel is a very simplistic and beautiful room," says Bruce Jensen, audio engineer and owner of B & R Audio. "Part of the design included keeping the speakers completely out of sight. The units had to be something small with good pattern control, high-end and very flat response. We chose the SLS speakers because they have all this and more."

"We continue to win a substantial amount of business from churches and other religious organizations," said Jeff Lowry, SLS International's Direct of Marketing. "The flexibility provided by our speakers, along with the sound quality, makes them ideal for virtually any religious venue. We expect to penetrate further this large market."

The Cove's Chapel construction consists of hardwood floors, sheetrock and glass walls, and a sheetrock ceiling with a very high A-frame, so control was very critical. In addition to the chapel's acoustical challenges, Jensen also had to keep in mind that many of the musicians and presenters would be on the main platform in front of the speakers, which would cause significant feedback.

"The SLS speakers give us good coverage all the way to the back of the room, without bouncing off a significant portion of the back wall," commented Jensen. "We didn't use any acoustical treatments at all and the speakers still give off such a smooth, accurate sound. The detail of the SLS speakers is substantially better than any other traditional speaker."

After the installation was complete, the first group to use the new audio system was a children's choir that performed for a Billy Graham Training Center staff event.

"The SLS speakers performed wonderfully during our first event and continue to sound fantastic throughout each event," said Jarred Brackett, chief audio/lighting technician at the Billy Graham Training Center. "The room has such a tall ceiling, so the reverb time is fairly high, close to three seconds. The SLS speakers are great for this room because of their tight coverage patterns."

Ergonomics by Design Ltd. Combines Acoustic Magic’s Voice Trackertm Array Microphone With Sony Handheld Recorders as a Portable Meeting Recording Tool

Ergonomics by Design, Ltd. often uses Sony digital recorders to record meetings and interviews in varying conference rooms without very much notice as to when the discussions would start.The Voice Tracker™, used as an auxiliary microphone through the 3.5 mm jack on the handheld digital recorder, provided an ideal solution for this application due to its light weight, its portability and its immense recording range.

Pearce, Canberra, Australia (PRWEB) March 15, 2022 -- Ergonomics by Design, Ltd. often uses Sony digital recorders to record meetings and interviews in varying conference rooms without very much notice as to when the discussions would start. Handheld recorders were initially chosen since they are extremely portable. The only difficulty was the handheld recorder’s limited pickup range; the rooms were large and the number of attendees would vary in every meeting. The Voice Tracker™, used as an auxiliary microphone through the 3.5 mm jack on the handheld digital recorder, provided an ideal solution for this application due to its light weight, its portability and its immense recording range.

According to Wendy Elford, Director of Ergonomics by Design, Ltd. “The Voice Tracker ™ array microphone performed brilliantly. We used it with a Sony ICD-BM1 and also on the laptop using the Microsoft sound recorder. With the Voice Tracker™ we were able to catch speakers up to 6 m away. Our tests gave excellent quality around a large conference table in a room approximately 5 m x 8 m.”

Karl Francois, National Solutions Manager with Voice Perfect Systems, who worked with Ergonomics by Design, Ltd. on this application, observed: “The Voice Tracker ™ array microphone performed equally well with laptop based meeting recording software, offered by Lexacom and others”.

Bob Feingold, CEO of Acoustic Magic notes that “The Voice Tracker™ is a simple and cost effective alternative to installing an expensive sound system with a separate microphone for each person”.

The Voice Tracker™ locates a talker and electronically steers a “listening beam,” like an acoustic searchlight, in that direction. This creates spatial filtering; sounds and reverberation from other parts of the room are not picked up. In addition, digital noise reduction processing removes background noise. This two-stage noise reduction, coupled with the sensitivity of eight microphone elements, gives the Voice Tracker™ outstanding range and sound quality.

About Voice Perfect Systems
Voice Perfect Systems is a 100% Australian owned company, formed in early 1994 to address the growing interest for large vocabulary speech dictation for computer users. Recognizing the potential for speech recognition systems, Voice Perfect became one of the pioneering distributors of speech activated dictation software.

About Acoustic Magic, Inc.
Acoustic Magic, Inc., located near Boston, manufactures the Voice Trackertm desktop microphone that has found application in speech recognition, meeting and transcription recording, VoIP and conventional teleconferencing, voice control for home automation, and security surveillance. The Voice Tracker™ Array microphone has been Certified by Dragon and ViaVoice speech recognition software, HomeSeer and HAL Home Automation software, as well as WinScribe dictation recording software.

SmartCode™ Corp. Announces The World's Smallest NFC RFID Tag For Mobile Phone Interaction

SmartCode™ Corp. world's smallest NFC (Near Field Communication) RFID tag provides the NFC community worldwide to develop new and innovative NFC RFID solutions. SmartCode™ Corp. world's smallest NFC RFID tag provides a significant cost reduction in deploying NFC RFID solutions.

(PRWEB) March 14, 2022 -- SmartCode™ Corp., the world leader in low cost, high performance RFID tags and readers, announced today the world's smallest NFC RFID tag at the CeBIT conference held in Hannover, Germany. SmartCode Corp. world's smallest NFC RFID tag supports the NFC standard for Near Field Communication. The NFC RFID standard is supported by Microsoft, Panasonic, MasterCard International, Motorola, NEC, Nokia, Philips, Samsung, Sony, Texas Instruments, Visa International, LG, LogicaCMG, Siemens, JCB and Logitech.

The new NFC RFID tag provides an excellent form factor solution, so more and more applications can be built with far more flexibility for embedding the NFC RFID in everyday readable items.

Continuing SmartCode Corp.'s world's first RFID/GPRS/CDMA Readers, the new NFC RFID solution will extend SmartCode Corp. offerings with the usage of a RFID-equipped mobile phone as a stand alone RFID Reader. By empowering consumer mobile phones with RFID Readers, consumers will enjoy an easy and robust solution to identify items and collect information simply by waving the mobile phone near a NFC RFID tag. SmartCode Corp.'s NFC RFID tag will communicate with the RFID-equipped mobile phone, and instruct the mobile phone to download information trough the phone's GPRS connectivity.

“We are delighted to continue our leadership in the RFID market with the world's smallest NFC RFID tag." Said Avi Ofer, SmartCode Corp. President, "NFC RFID represent a great value for consumers for near field interaction with everyday items. We are happy to work together with the world leading cellular phone manufacturers such as Nokia, Samsung, Sony, Motorola, Philips, LG, Panasonic and Siemens as well with other world leaders such as Microsoft, Visa and MasterCard in advancing the widespread of the NFC RFID Standard."

SmartCode's world's smallest NFC RFID tags will enable the widespread of NFC RFID by reducing the cost of implementing NFC RFID, side by side with a variety of new and innovative solutions utilizing the small size of SmartCode's NFC RFID tags. NFC opens up myriad new opportunities for consumer lifestyles. It will enable people to effortlessly connect digital cameras, PDAs, set-top boxes, computers and mobile phones. With NFC it is possible to connect any two devices to each other to exchange information or access content and services – easily and securely. NFC technology bridges today’s connectivity gap. It enables the simple transfer of information -- from phone numbers to electronic transactions -- and allows people to interact with their environment without needing to navigate complicated menus or perform complex set-up procedures.

Imagine seeing a poster advertising a concert with your favorite band. By flashing your mobile phone or PDA near the poster, you download information about the event from the NFC RFID tag in the poster. After finding out more about the concert, you can immediately buy tickets and store them electronically on your handheld device. On the night of the concert you can access the venue without ever having the need for a paper ticket. More than just a wireless connection, NFC is a basic tool allowing you to instinctively interact with your electronic environment.

Until toady, the prices of RFID tags of an average of 50 cents, have created a cost barrier for companies worldwide to adopt the RFID solutions. With SmartCode™ Corp.’s exclusive patented manufacturing technology, SmartCode™ Corp. can manufacture these RFID tags at a price level of 5-10 cents, in large volumes.

Fastrax Develops New Edition of iSuite 3 Software Development Kit for Sony GPS Chipsets

Fastrax Ltd., a leading provider of open and portable OEM GPS Software Development Kit environments and programmable OEM GPS receivers, today announced that Fastrax will add support for selected Sony GPS chipsets to the iSuite 3 Software Development Kit (SDK), and that this new iSuite 3 SDK version has been licensed to Sony Corporation.

Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) March 10, 2022 -- Fastrax Ltd., a leading provider of open and portable OEM GPS Software Development Kit environments and programmable OEM GPS receivers, today announced that Fastrax will add support for selected Sony GPS chipsets to the iSuite 3 Software Development Kit (SDK), and that this new iSuite 3 SDK version has been licensed to Sony Corporation.

The Fastrax iSuite 3 SDK addresses the challenging issues of reducing time to market in order to capture market share in the rapidly growing segments of location-aware products, as well as reducing the bill of materials cost in consumer goods and industrial tracking devices. Fastrax iSuite technology may be used to rapidly modify the features and functionality of a GPS receiver. Receiver performance can now be tailored to match the requirements of any usage scenario, support for new protocols and devices can be added easily, and power management can be tuned intelligently to match the application specification.

Additional iSuite SDK Toolkits containing pre-packaged application source code libraries will further shorten the time to market of A-GPS, wireless communication, In Vehicle Navigation sensor, data logging and DGPS-enabled location-aware products.

Lower bill of materials cost and price elasticity are key drivers for higher volumes of location-aware products. The Fastrax iSuite 3 SDK can significantly reduce the bill of materials as well as non-recurring expenses by utilizing the spare CPU and memory resources in the GPS receiver. Tracking device control and recreational product application software can now be executed on the GPS receiver baseband CPU, thus eliminating the separate controller with its memory and other supporting components from the design. Products with fewer controllers and components will have a shorter design and testing cycle, take up a smaller footprint, consume less power and, most importantly, provide a more cost-effective design.

iSuite technology enables remote on-the-fly reprogramming of GPS receiver firmware and application software. This can significantly reduce product maintenance costs and improve customer satisfaction.

"This is a very exciting development for Fastrax, as it marks the first time that a fully functional GPS SDK will be available on several platforms. It is testimony to the true openness and portability of the iSuite 3 SDK architecture and the iSys Operating System. This will allow us to offer iTrax(TM) OEM GPS receivers based on Sony chipsets to our iSuite SDK customers, thus increasing the choice of hardware platforms available to them,” said Mr. Matti Räty, President/CEO, Fastrax.

The Fastrax iSuite 3 SDK will support Sony CXD2951 and CXD2956+CXA3355 GPS chipsets and will be available during the second half of 2005.

iSuite 3 SDK users can utilize industrial-strength ARM® RealView® development and debugging tools for efficient embedded software development. The iSuite 3 SDK is designed for high portability and easy application development. These capabilities are enabled by the portable multitasking real-time operating system iSys(TM) OS, iSuite SDK APIs, and the powerful and extensible iTalk communication protocol.

The high portability and usability are demonstrated by a unique platform simulation function that allows developing, running and debugging the iSuite 3 SDK application code in a Microsoft Windows XP® environment with Microsoft Visual C++ .NET® tools, and then recompiling the same source code base for the embedded GPS processor. The option to begin development in a Microsoft Windows XP® environment with familiar development tools will allow for a short learning curve and will enable full integration between the GPS solution and PC or other host CPU-based applications with the iSuite architecture.

Primary Research Group has Released a New Study: Best Practices of Academic Library Information Technology Directors, ISBN: 1-57440-072-X

This study is based on interviews with IT directors and assistant directors of leading college and university libraries and consortiums, including The Research Libraries Group, Vanderbilt University, the University of Texas, Lewis & Clark College, Salt Lake Community College, the University of Washington, the California Institute of Technology, Hutchinson Community College and Australia’s Monash University.

(PRWEB) March 10, 2022 -- This study is based on interviews with IT directors and assistant directors of leading college and university libraries and consortiums, including The Research Libraries Group, Vanderbilt University, the University of Texas, Lewis & Clark College, Salt Lake Community College, the University of Washington, the California Institute of Technology, Hutchinson Community College and Australia’s Monash University. Just a few of the study’s findings are:

• Technology Centers in academic libraries, often initially conceived for faculty or specialized students in art or engineering, are increasingly used by the average student. Supply of technology centers, properly marketed and conveniently situated, stimulates demand, surprisingly broad based demand.

• In general, students appear to appreciate the option of borrowing laptops from their library, and most libraries that offer this service report high levels of student enthusiasm. In addition, libraries report virtually no problems with theft or even poor maintenance of equipment. However, the time demands of storing, distributing, maintaining, providing net access, and assuring compliance with legally mandated use provisions leads many librarians to seek to limit the programs. In addition, the availability of lap tops in the library does not appear to significantly affect use of other library workstations.

• One participant points out that many cutting edge library services require php programming and that many smaller libraries in particular focus excessively on workstation maintenance and other issues.

• Ebook usage is steadily increasing especially among smaller libraries. Increased ease of use for patrons and librarians, a focus on downloadable titles rather than special viewing devices, and an increase in the number of titles available, has led to an upsurge in demand and usage. Other factors that have stimulated Ebook usage are the continuing advance of distance and cyberlearning, and the better integration of Ebooks into course management and electronic reserve systems and library catalogs. Some users complain about incompatibility among different vendors of Ebooks.

• Most libraries have some kind of wish list for the digitization for their special collections, particularly their photographic collections. However, expertise is still limited and plans are thin for integrating digitized special collections into library catalogs, or publicizing them effectively over the web. More thought needs to be given to the integration of special collections in to mainstream library catalogs and how to publicize special collection over the web, or in partnership with other institutions

Among the many topics covered are: investment in and maintenance of workstations, implementation of wireless access, policies towards laptops in the library, digitizing special collections, establishing digital depositories, preserving scholarly access to potentially temporal digital media, use of Ebooks, services for distance learning students, use of url resolvers, web site development and management, use of virtual reference, investment in library software, IT staff size and staff skill composition, range of IT staff responsibilities, use of outsourcing, relations between Library and general University IT staff, uses of PHP programming, catalog integration with the web, catalog enhancement software and services, web site search engine policies, use of automated electronic collection management software, technology education and training, development of technology centers and information literacy, library printing technology and cost reimbursement, and other issues of concern to academic librarians.

Download a free chapter with this press release. Publications and media-oriented websites may request a review copy by calling: 212-736-2316. Orders can be placed with major book distributors or directly at the number listed above. The price of a print version of the 90-page perfect bound report is $75.00; a PDF version with rights to one print out and maintenance on one computer is $95.00

Easycamcorders.Com Provides an Easy Guide to Camcorder Reviews

Ratings and advice about camcorders transform clueless shoppers into tech savvy owners.

Boston, MA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 9, 2022 -- EasyCamcorders.com, a new online consumer electronics guide with camcorder reviews, ratings and advice, was launched today to help novices navigate the world of buying and using camcorders.

As the name implies, EasyCamcorders.com makes it as easy as possible for consumers to access the best buying and usage advice for camcorders available on the Internet. Unlike many technology sites, which can seem busy, dry and overwhelming to the first-time user, EasyCamcorders.com is recognizable for its crisp, clean, colorful graphics and concise camcorder reviews illustrated with helpful tables and images.

"EasyCamcorders.com grew out of the feedback we obtained from some of the quarter million consumers who rely on the guidance of CamcorderInfo.com each month," says Robin Liss, Internet entrepreneur and founder of EasyCamcorders.com. "Inspired by user’s comments, we realized the need for a different kind of site and designed one for less experienced shoppers who were looking for quality research presented in a simplified manner."

The information on EasyCamcorders.com reflects the direction that the camcorder industry is taking as manufacturers increasingly add ease-of-use features to their products and seek to attract the 'point and shoot' consumer. The site’s reviews are designed to appeal to this new, wider buying audience and are written in a straightforward, no-holds-barred style by unbiased reviewers who are not afraid to take
a stand in their ratings, unapologetically separating the quality camcorders from the bottom of the barrel. Each EasyCamcorders.com review is backed by the same thorough research and analysis that is performed for a CamcorderInfo.com review.

Ideal for experienced consumers, CamcorderInfo.com, the predecessor of EasyCamcorders.com, is the Web’s largest, most comprehensive publication for camcorder reviews and articles on video production and camcorder use. Yahoo! Internet Life named CamcorderInfo.com one of the "50 Most Incredibly Useful Sites" on the Internet and it recently landed on Forbes’ annual list of the "Best of the Web." The new site represents the next step in its evolution, and is designed to share all the information available at the parent site with consumers who are inexperienced with camcorder technology.

In addition to product ratings and to-the-point reviews intuitively organized by manufacturer, EasyCamcorders.com’s content includes a beginner’s guide to camcorders, easy-to-follow tutorials on specific aspects of usage such as how to shoot in low light or achieve special effects, and articles on the newest developments in the technology. The site also includes buying advice such as a list of "The Top Ten Most Important Things to Know When Buying a Camcorder" and, through a partnership with the comparison shopping website PriceGrabber.com, provides visitors with real-time pricing information on equipment.

"EasyCamcorders.com is poised to become the go-to Web destination for novices—no matter their budget or previous experience with consumer electronics—as they contemplate buying and using camcorders for the very first time," says Liss. "We’re confident that new users will discover a trusted resource in the rigorous analysis and informative articles that define EasyCamcorders.com."

Safe Escape, LLC Offers KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detectors

Using Parents' Own Voices to Awaken Sleeping Children and Provide Escape Instructions
New smoke alert uses the only sound proven to awaken sleeping children during a fire—-their parents’ own voices. Studies prove that traditional smoke alarms often don't awaken sleeping children.

Topeka, KS (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 9, 2022 -– According to the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, 40,000 children are seriously burned and injured, and an additional 1,200 perish each year in residential fires. One of the leading causes of these deaths and injuries is the recently discovered fact that children are not always awakened by traditional smoke alarms due to their very deep sleeping patterns. This phenomenon has been demonstrated on national news broadcasts such as NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw and many local news programs around the country.

Safe Escape, LLC, a company specializing in home safety products, announces it now offers a new smoke detector that has been demonstrated to awaken sleeping children ages 1 to 14 at a very high effectiveness rate. The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector is the only alarm available that allows parents to record a "Wake-up Command" in their own voices and directed specifically at their own children.

In studies by the Victoria University Sleep Lab and the University of Georgia, the familiar voice of a parent proved 100% effective at awakening sleeping children in seconds. The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector leverages this fact by using a recorded message from a parent to awaken the children and provide verbal instructions on how to escape from the burning home. The success of the KidSmart Detector at awakening children stems from its unique ability to capitalize on the brain's ability to recognize one's own name or a familiar noise over background noise or even while asleep.

Even if a child awakens in a residential fire crisis from the sounds of a traditional smoke detector, they are still at great risk. The secondary cause of fire-related death and injury to children is their tendency to panic in high-stress situations or act irrationally by hiding in closets or under their beds. Rather than issuing alarms that can panic a child, KidSmart can deliver a firm but reassuring message to the children, such as "Sally! Wake up! Sally! Wake up! Stay calm, follow the escape plan we practiced and meet me in the back yard." The vocal commands are followed by a series of high-pitched alarms.

"As a parent myself, I am very concerned about the safety of my kids," said Jim Driggers, president of Safe Escape, LLC. "When I learned about how sleeping children do not often respond to traditional smoke detectors, I knew we had to make the KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector available on our Web site."

The KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector has been recognized and supported worldwide by child psychologists and fire safety experts. It has won the prestigious "Best of Innovations" Award at the International Consumer Electronics Show and Popular Science’s "Best of What’s New" Award.

Safe Escape, LLC has made the KidSmart Vocal Smoke Detector available through its Web site at www.SafeEscapeCorp.com for $69.95

Atmel and Celoxica Co-Develop ESL Design for Next Generation Processors

New Design & Synthesis Tools Are First Enabling Reconfigurable Hardware-Accelerated Processors

(PRWEB) March 9, 2022 -- Atmel® Corporation (Nasdaq: ATML), a global leader in the development and fabrication of advanced semiconductor solutions and Celoxica® Ltd, the leading provider of C-based design and synthesis solutions, announced today cooperation that extends Electronic System Level (ESL) design to a family of dynamically reconfigurable processors currently under development at Atmel. These new backend tools are being developed for a new generation of processors based on Atmel’s FPSLIC® technology that is planned for introduction later this year.

Tools from Celoxica’s ESL portfolio, the DK Design Suite and Agility Compiler will synthesise hardware accelerators from highly complex algorithms described in C or SystemC. Celoxica will also provide its HW/SW co-design technology and board-level integration technology to offer Atmel customers a seamless implementation flow. The tools are new to the industry because they allow for dynamic reconfiguration.

“On-demand, on-the-fly software and hardware programmability is becoming increasingly integrated and pervasive in modern systems development,” said Guy Lafayette, marketing manager at Atmel. “It is critical that we empower existing and new customers to efficiently harness this potential. By using design tools from Celoxica we can easily migrate to ESL and enable our customers to better explore the design space, evaluate partitioning trade-offs and efficiently map complex designs onto a device.”

More than 4 years of research undertaken at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic has led to this cooperative development. Researchers from the Academy’s Institute of Information Theory and Automation (UTIA) collaborated with both Atmel and Celoxica to define and prove the flow from algorithm to implementation. “By utilising using C-based design and synthesis from Celoxica we have demonstrated ease of design and lower cost of design coupled with production grade implementation,” said Jiri Kadlec, head of the Department of Signal Processing at UTIA. “We have also demonstrated increased functional density of user designs and decreased power consumption by taking advantage of dynamic reconfiguration.”

“We’re delighted to be working with Atmel and UTIA in this important area of research, design and development,” said Jeff Jussel, vice president of marketing for Celoxica. “ESL design coupled with high-level synthesis delivers the productivity and efficiency gains that designers and modern reconfigurable architectures demand. By working with Atmel, we will extend design support to include not only high speed, high quality custom HW/SW implementations but also pre-compiled IP that further reduces the burden of complex design and verification.”

Online Purchases Predicted to Capture $133 Billion in 2005

EasyStoreCreator helps small- and mid-sized businesses feast on their slice of the Internet pie

(PRWEB) March 8, 2022 -- Market "soothsayer" Jupiter Research predicts that in 2005, online business-to-consumer sales totals are likely to surpass $133 billion and that by 2008, total online purchases in the US will comprise 5% of all retail sales. "Small businesses, home-based businesses, and emerging online entrepreneurs continue to fuel the phenomenon," reports Melanie Black, the visionary leader at the helm of EasyStoreCreator.com, "and they're fueling our business, too."

EasyStoreCreator is a completely web-based, online store builder…a do-it-yourself ecommerce site creator that works like a paint-by-numbers kit for websites…only easier. Designed to work for businesses that sell a handful of products or thousands, ESC's customizable, all-in-one solution lets entrepreneurs of any size create unique sites that are perfectly suited to their individual needs and inventory. See http://www.easystorecreator.com for more information.

A nationwide survey commissioned by Prodigy Biz Corporation, a subsidiary of Prodigy Communications Corporation reported that 44% of small business owners felt that they do not have enough staff to maintain a website, while 41% felt they do not have time to maintain a Web site.

Overall, the study showed the likelihood of having an Internet presence declines significantly with the overall size of the company. Only 25 percent of companies with fewer than 10 employees has an Internet presence. By contrast, half of those with 10 or more employees have taken advantage of this opportunity.

"Research has shown that approximately one-third of small businesses currently maintain a web presence," says Black. Research by IDC, the International Data Corporation, found that only 19% of small businesses were online one year ago, while the Prodigy study found that 40% more small businesses expect to be on the Internet within the next eight months.

A Level Playing Field
The challenge for small- and mid-sized businesses, says Black, is to become part of the online phenomenon without busting their budget. "A small- to medium-sized company may be hard pressed to find the time, money and expertise to create an effective website," she explains. "That keeps them off the 'net and on the sidelines of the success game."

With the free ESC Basic package, it is possible to build a fully functional website in as little as ten minutes. No technical training or software is required. "At EasyStoreCreator, we believe that every business should have an equal opportunity to sell their products to the world," says Black.

For businesses in need of more than basic service, EasyStoreCreator provides a full range of affordable services, including an easy way to establish ecommerce merchant accounts. The company offers all-in-one web store services for fees starting as low as $14.95. All packages include web hosting, domain name registration, shopping cart features, and essential customer service functions like email. To signup today visit http://www.easystorecreator.com

The programming and artistic demands of website building are frequently out of reach for the average non-technical businessperson, with web design costs alone ranging from a few hundreds dollars to several thousand. "Business owners who don't fully understand the online sales environment end up with bells and whistles they simply don't need, and costs they can't afford," says Black. "At EasyStoreCreator, we help our clients buy what they need rather than try and sell them things they don't."

"Some companies charge up to $100 simply to register domain names," says Black referring to inflated "set up" fees designed to separate business owners from more of their money. Black also points to the alarming number of businesses that have outsourced this function to new companies.

"It's very common to see offers for low, low prices in domain name registration offered by companies that are entering the marketplace," says Black. The problem, she explains, is that many of those companies fold, leaving the business client without a name or place on the Internet. "EasyStoreCreator is here to stay," says Black. "We're solid, established, and our clients know we're in it for the long run."

Technology with a Human Touch
At EasyStoreCreator, making Internet technology easy-to-use and accessible is a key goal. Most web companies don’t offer a phone number and clients have no way of reaching support personnel except via email. "A business owner who isn't ''fluent' in the language of technology needs special care," explains Black, who says that providing free online support and resources is only part of the customer service picture.

"We have live operators available via 'chat' seven days a week," Black notes, but adds that Easy Store Creator goes beyond this traditional support function with live operators, on-call from eight o'clock in the morning until five o'clock at night on weekdays. "Combined with our toll-free phone number, and online help request forms, we ensure that our clients never feel 'alone' and always have someone to turn to for help, support, and guidance."

Black further notes that EasyStoreCreator's webservers are monitored 24/7 for downtime and systems are backed up once a week. "Our clients want simplicity along with their success and that's what we provide," she says. "We manage the store and technology associated with it our clients don't have to." EasyStoreCreator takes care of the technology of online businesses, "leaving clients with more to time grow their businesses," says Black.

Since EasyStoreCreator was designed as a do-it-yourself tool, "our clients can make changes as often as they wish without having to pay a web designer to do it for them," explains Black. The system allows user to control inventory and edit item listings, and provides pre-designed templates that are easy to fill in.

Easy Pay
Accepting credit cards online is imperative for successful e-commerce. "Offering a range of payment options makes it easy for customers to make a purchase," says Black, adding, "It also encourages impulse buying, reinforces your company's professionalism and increases your chance of closing a sale".

For merchants concerned about protection for online sales, EasyStoreCreator makes it easy to accept and process credit cards with a secure, affordable ecommerce merchant account. "We show our clients how to protect themselves against credit card fraud," says Black, "and we provide them with full support for some of the most popular payment gateways."

Winegard Company, Holder Of 60 Patents Over The Years, Awaits Issuance Of Another US Patent

Awaits Issuance Of Another US Patent For its Best Selling Off-Air Antenna, The Squareshooter™
The United States Patent Office has approved the Applied Technology for this outdoor High-Band VHF/UHF Digital/Analog/HDTV antenna system and issued a notice of allowance.

Burlington, IA (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 7, 2022 -- Winegard Company announced today that an important step in protecting its new products and technologies has occurred in the patent process for the SquareShooter™ SS-1000 and SS-2000 series of digital Antenna Platforms. Bob Howell, Director, Distribution Systems/Off-Air Antenna Business Group for the Winegard Company said, "The formal examination is officially over for the SquareShooter and we expect issuance of the US patent this summer. The application is on its way the US patent office to be assigned a date of issuance, so we’re well on our way to getting the patent issued."

The patent will cover both the SquareShooter™ SS-1000, selected as an Honoree in the 2004 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase and the SS-2000, a more powerful version equipped with the new Winegard digital preamp, extending the SquareShooter™ range up to 40 or 50 miles away from the transmit source.

Howell continued, "The right Off-Air DTV/HDTV Antenna is now a necessity, not an accessory. Getting the best Off-Air picture starts with the choice of the best antenna for today’s reception challenges. The single largest contributing factor to successful digital antenna installation and DTV/HDTV reception today still remains the ability of the metropolitan/suburban consumer to buy an antenna that deals with multi-path or reflected signal. This is a huge issue and significant challenge for digital antenna manufactures and professional installers."

The SquareShooter antenna platforms were specifically designed for digital reception of these reflected signals. Its primary market is in metropolitan/suburban locations where line-of-sight to the transmit tower is blocked and the only signal they can receive comes from a bounced signal, such as off a building.

With the addition of the new digital preamp to the SS-2000, the SquareShooter now delivers even more reception power to the very important metropolitan/urban market. This is the biggest segment of the HDTV market and was not currently being served well by existing digital antennas until the release of the SquareShooter™ SS-1000 last year.

Howell continued, "Although only 16 inches square, The SquareShooter™ Series was specifically designed to receive and resonate VHF and UHF transmissions from reflected broadcast signals by allowing the antenna to be pointed at another reflective source to capture the reflected signals and still be able to resonate quality DTV/HDTV signals."

There is a huge need in this market for an outdoor antenna that successfully addresses these issues. The SquareShooter Series of outdoor High-Band VHF/UHF Digital/Analog/HDTV Antenna System are the only digital antenna platforms on the market today that can do it. As evidence of this, the introduction of the SquareShooter™ SS-1000 was the only time in the 50-year history of the Winegard Company that a product was pre-sold before it was available; the SquareShooter™ SS-2000 is the second. This is a true testament to the need and acceptance of these unique and innovative new antenna platform designs.

New Optimised PCs Promise Quick Start for DSP Projects

Original equipment manufacturers and embedded system designers can give their digital signal processing projects a jump-start thanks to the innovative Sundance SMTPC range of optimised PCs.

(PRWEB) March 3, 2022 -- Original equipment manufacturers and embedded system designers can give their digital signal processing projects a jump-start thanks to the innovative Sundance SMTPC range of optimized PCs.

Sundance Multiprocessor Technology is an internationally renowned supplier of high-performance processor and I/O modules for use in single and multi-processor DSP equipment. Their equipment is found in demanding applications including imaging, sonar, simulation and industrial control. A range of PCs customized to bring the best out of this world-class technology was seen as essential.

“Powerful DSP systems demand robust power supplies, adequate cooling, and space for all the hardware. Off-the-shelf PCs are rarely up to the job. Ordering our cutting-edge DSP hardware with a PC built for the job avoids any risks and saves projects leaders valuable time by providing configured, tested and ready to run systems,” explained Flemming Christensen, Sundance managing director.

The SMTPC range of optimized PCs is available in desktop, tower and standard portable platforms depending on need and user preference. Build quality is exceptional and there is even a ruggedised portable version for heavy-duty use in harsh environments. All share the same integration with Sundance’s hardware and are delivered configured to customer order requirements.

Though customised for best performance of DSP applications, the PCs are based on well-specified components throughout. They include Intel processors, DDR2-400 RAM, ATA hard disks, DVD read/writers and come complete with Microsoft Windows XP Professional.

Added features include more robust power supplies to ensure stable operation with power hungry processing systems. Multi-fan flow through cooling prevents overheating while a front panel two-channel LCD temperature display with two internal probes gives a visual assurance that all is running well. To help users start their DSP projects immediately, all Sundance hardware and software is pre-installed to guarantee a hundred percent compatibility. This allows the company to provide whole system support.

Sundance Multiprocessor Technology Ltd are based in Chesham, UK, and have offices in Italy and the USA. They specialise in providing design, manufacture and sales of DSP products and systems using the latest technology.

New Digital Solutions for Health Care Providers: EMR/ EHR revised

Health Office solution company Comtech Networks focuses on assisting medical offices to comply with new rules, regulations and guidelines.

Long Island, NY (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) March 2, 2022 -- Star Trek’s Doctor’s would have been amused, but for today’s medical practitioners, a tablet PC, which retrieves medical data from a server is just one available technical tool, helping them to increase data security and reduce administrative costs. Service companies now offer customized solutions for each individual medical office, following the goals of the paperless office, the EMR (electronic medical records) guidelines and President Bush’s new pledge for an “US Electronic Health Record System (EHR)”.

Comtech Networks, based in Long Island (New York) is a prime example of a specialized health office solution provider. The company is focused on the improvement of procedures and standards in medical offices from 1-40 doctors. After initial assessments, Comtech Networks suggests various software and -if necessary -hardware solutions, which are focused around the practice manager’s needs and include as much or as less digital/ electronic change as necessary.

“Our main goal is to increase the profitability and productivity of the medical office,” says Jim Carpenter, CEO of Comtech Networks, “The result is a win-win situation for everybody. Digital Medical Office Solutions is about the simplification of office procedures, reduction of costs, increase in payments, decrease in errors and a clear enhancement of data security.”

In accordance with the government’s new initiative, Comtech recognized some time ago, the importance of “incorporating health information technology”. As President Bush recently said, it is time to “wring out the inefficiencies” of our “19th century paperwork system”.
The services Comtech is offering to a health care provider include:
• The design of a completely automated office (in cooperation with Greenway Medical Technologies)
• The integration of a document management solution (in cooperation with SRS Software)
• a customized “minimal solution” to achieve compliance

Already under the regulations of the 1996 HIPAA (“Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act”) every medical practice was required to comply with the new privacy and security rules, which started to be latest enforced in 2004. During this period, Comtech has successfully assisted numerous medical practices across the United States in their transition to an efficient modern office environment. Jim Carpenter proudly points out, that “…most of our customers have been impressed by our passion for details – that is: finding the right solution for their individual situation. There is a difference between a 3 provider OB/GYN practice and a 15 doctor medical center – so you always need a customized approach from a local expert.”

Now, Comtech is ready to take its services a step further and to make every doctors office in the North East ready to become part of the “New National Electronic Health Care Network” and connect them to President Bush’s proposed “regional hubs”. Comtech still works with many of its original customers, but the IT service company is confident that it will increase its customer base remarkably, once the mainstream practitioners realize the benefits and business sense of adopting an EMR/ EHR.

About Comtech Networks:
Comtech Networks provides digital solutions for the medical office, through assessment, analysis, and implementation of customized systems. Comtech offers partial or complete solutions for EMR (Electronic Medical Record), document management, scheduling, billing and general IT challenges.

Since 1996, the Long Island (New York) based company has focused on the needs of the medical office. Gaining outstanding expertise with HIPAA compliance challenges, Comtech Networks is now focused completely on helping every medical office in the North East to become part of the National Electronic Health Care Record Network (EHR).

Comtech Networks was established in 1988 and provided premium system development, infrastructure support, and project management expertise to a variety of markets. In this time Comtech successfully supported technology intensive organizations such as Citigroup®, Citibank®, Blockbuster Video, Stony Brook University Hospital, Sony, and Prodigy.

Sensor Systems Can Improve Quality of Life for Millions

Dynamic pressure measurement technology helps podiatrists, chiropractors, orthopedists and other professionals evaluate and diagnose a diverse range of plantar problems such as diabetic foot, ulcerations, hammertoes and neuromas. Early signs of scoliosis and other conditions can also be detected.

East Hanover, NJ (PRWEB) March 1, 2022 -- Through recent advances in its Tactilus® plantar pressure measurement technology, Sensor Products LLC is now positioned to assist podiatrists, orthopedists, chiropractors and other medical professionals in making the best diagnoses and recommendations for their patients. Essentially, the emergence of technologies like the Tactilus® foot platform and insole systems is critical to the well-being of millions of people.

For instance, diabetes is the fifth major cause of disease-related deaths in the United States. Out of the estimated 18.2 million Americans affected, 4.5 million will suffer from plantar problems like degenerative foot disorder and complications due to neuropathy such as bunions, hammertoes, Charcot feet and more. Experts on the disease stress comprehensive foot care for amputation prevention and overall comfort for diabetes sufferers. Orthotic devices and appropriate footwear play a large role in the quality of life for these patients.

However, diabetics aren’t the only demographic subjected to pain caused by plantar pressure abnormalities. In fact, about 100 million Americans experience biomechanical plantar problems caused by obesity or arthritis-induced heel pain, heel spurs, hammertoes or neuromas. By utilizing Tactilus® foot platform and insole electronic pressure measurement sensors, professionals can easily detect, diagnose and monitor patients with these and other plantar abnormalities. Visit www.sensorprod.com for more information.

“These new analysis systems are the most advanced in the world and can be dedicated to innumerable applications,” said Carlos Ruiz, Tactilus® product manager. “The link between technological advancement and human quality of life is ultimately exhibited because of the diverse global populations the Tactilus® systems can potentially benefit.”

Employing user-friendly software, the foot platform and insole sensor systems generate in-depth statistical information and dynamic 2-D and 3-D profile images for such medical and ergonomic body mapping needs as: diabetic and neuropathic patient screening, orthotic and prosthetic efficacy profiling, pronation/supination impact evaluation during bi-pedal locomotion activities, pre- and post-surgical comparative analysis, ulceration detection, degenerative foot disorder monitoring, ray hypermobility diagnosis, and early scoliosis detection. With unprecedented speed and accuracy, the systems comprehensively profile plantar pressure distribution and magnitude.

The Tactilus® foot platform analysis system enables professionals to perform dynamic pressure profiling in order to evaluate shoe-to-ground interaction related to the diabetic foot, pronation, foot arch and weight-bearing capabilities and assess impact effects in bipedal locomotion activities of both feet, either exclusively, or in relation to each other. The platform detects body motion (foot-knee-hip) to effectively profile any abnormalities. In addition, densely packed sensors in the Tactilus® platform analysis system offer the user high resolution images and a modular architecture.

The Tactilus® insole systems are advantageous in their basic design by assessing foot-to-shoe interaction. The foot insole is comprised a thin and highly durable substrate material and ranges in size from unisex US 1.5 to 10.5 (EUR 33 to 44). The insole sensor collects precise data for determining pedal pressure points and assessing athletic plantar implants in activities ranging from standing and walking to running, jumping, skiing and skating. Working at speeds up to 500 Hz, this system’s velocity is unmatched by any other technology.

Both the Tactilus® foot platform and insole analysis systems possess robust sensors which can endure thousands of uses with consistent repeatability, and are highly resistant to electromagnetic noise, temperature, and humidity fluctuations. The full-scale Windows-based software provides isobar and region-of-interest viewing, graphical displays of data in bar charts, line scans and histograms, statistical analysis of average/minimum/maximum pressures, total force over any selected area, analysis view of all nine major foot zones, pressure vs. time and more.

Demonstrations of Tactilus® analysis systems can be requested by contacting Sensor Products at 1.973.884.1755 or at www.sensorprod.com/tactilus.
