Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

At sports pitches, tracks and stadiums around the world, the line between success and failure is getting slimmer and sports franchises are turning to new technologies and measurements to give themselves the competitive edge.

The Sports Analytics Innovation Summit will gather over 200 sports performance and analytics leaders in Boston on September 12 & 13 for a unique event to discuss this new and often secretive field.

With the increased use of analytics across elite sports, the sharing of information on how teams are leveraging data for success both on and off the field is vital to continued growth within this specialist field. Teams from across the globe will be arriving to discuss the use of analytics in sports ranging from the development of elite athletes to targeted training techniques amongst the world's most famous major league teams.

Speakers from Manchester United, The NFL and Nike will join an elite group of analysts and innovators to share the secrets behind their sporting and business successes in a thought provoking and innovative environment.

With a multifaceted format this summit is divided into 4 tracks on the following themes: Performance Analysis, Business in Sport, Sport Tech Innovation and Digital Sport Innovation.

"We are seeing an increased dependence on analytics in all aspects of sporting performance" said Rebecca Barrie, International Events Director at Innovation Enterprise. "This summit will provide the ideal platform for those looking to learn more about this new and exciting area within not only elite sports performance but also from a marketing and business point of view, whilst also allowing those working in the field to share ideas in an informal setting".

George Hill, Managing Editor for Sports Performance & Technology had this to say about previous events "These kind of events are what those of us working in the industry need, not only to make sure we are working at the cutting edge but also to make sure we aren't making mistakes that others have made in the past. Increasingly we are seeing that without peer to peer discussions, those working within this emerging field are often not utilizing new technologies or approaches in the best ways".

System Mechanic 8 Goes Beyond Ordinary Registry Cleaners

System Mechanic 8 Goes Beyond Ordinary Registry Cleaners











System Mechanic 8 offers complete registry optimization for best PC performance.


Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) August 20, 2008

iolo technologies recently introduced its unique 3-step approach to registry repair and maintenance. Included in the award-winning PC tune-up products System Mechanic 8 and System Mechanic 8 Professional, this technology offers a thorough optimization of the registry that is significantly more effective than basic registry cleaning.

Experts agree that the Windows registry plays a vital role in how PCs operate, by storing critical settings needed by software, hardware, and the operating system. Unfortunately - due to how the registry stores data - normal, everyday PC usage can cause this essential nerve center to become filled with errors and bloated with unused space. The effects of a corrupted and overly large registry range from slow computer startup times to recurring error messages to frustrating lockups and crashes.

"Standard registry cleaners were created to repair errors in the registry, but clearing out faulty entries does not completely fix the problem and it does not restore the registry to like-new efficiency," reports Kraig Lane, iolo's Director of Product Management. "Even after cleaning, the registry may still be over-inflated and fragmented - and PC performance is still negatively impacted."

New System Mechanic 8 offers more than just basic registry cleaning. The complete registry optimization in System Mechanic not only fixes errors, but also compacts and removes the excess space and defragments and organizes the registry - the result is the maximum level of registry performance that goes far beyond that of ordinary registry cleaners.

SYSTEM MECHANIC 8'S THREE-STEP APPROACH

Most registry cleaners only clean the registry, but to effectively stabilize and speed up the PC, the registry must also be kept organized and at its minimum size.

1.    Fix errors and clean out obsolete entries. System Mechanic detects and removes registry errors and cleans out old and unused settings.

2.    Defragment and reorganize the registry. System Mechanic organizes all the scattered pieces of the registry files and consolidates them for faster registry processing.

3.    Compact and remove unused bloat space. System Mechanic removes dead and wasted space in the registry to speed up the PC and free up vital RAM.

Defragmenting and compacting run the next time the PC is restarted, before the operating system loads - iolo's research has shown this method to be the most reliable and much safer than running the processes within Windows. All stages offer a user-friendly, color-coded presentation so that users can easily see the state of their registry's health. And to complete the set of registry management tools, System Mechanic includes a full registry backup and restoration function, a crucial safeguard in case of PC disaster. Registry backups can be run on-demand or can be set to automatically run on a recurring basis.

CONVENIENCE OF AUTOMATED REGISTRY OPTIMIZATION

With iolo's patent-pending ActiveCare™ technology, consumers can keep the registry at peak performance by automating all stages of the optimization process. ActiveCare automatically detects negative changes in registry performance and will repair, defragment, and compact the registry as needed.

Here again, System Mechanic distinguishes itself from other tune-up products: rather than running on a set time schedule (which is usually either insufficient or superfluous), ActiveCare maximizes efficiency and eliminates the frustration of interrupted work by running tune-up actions only when needed and only when the PC is not in use.

PC TUNE-UP EXPERTS WITH 10+ YEARS EXPERIENCE

As part of iolo's ongoing effort to inform consumers about the latest PC tune-up issues, the company recently released the white paper, ''Registry Optimization: Beyond Registry Cleaning''. Drawing from a knowledgebase of research, the paper is written in layman's terms and answers common questions about the registry and how it can be safely repaired and optimized. This white paper is freely available for download.

System Mechanic has been cleaning and repairing Windows registries for over 10 years. With an expertise gained through years of testing and refining its technology, iolo offers the assurance of stability and safety that is important for any product that repairs the critical registry. And as it has done since inception, System Mechanic provides much more than registry optimization. Ranked by NPD Intellect as the world's #1-selling PC tune-up product, System Mechanic's one integrated package of over 40 diagnostic, repair, and optimization tools continues to receive prominent industry awards.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

System Mechanic and System Mechanic Professional support Microsoft® Windows® Vista, XP, and 2000.

PRICING AND LICENSING

A year of service for System Mechanic retails for $ 49.95 ($ 29.95 for upgrades) and System Mechanic Professional retails for $ 69.95 ($ 39.95 for upgrades). All upgrades are free for as long as the service period is active. A single license of either version can be used on up to three PCs. More information and free product evaluations can be found at http://www.iolo.com .

ABOUT IOLO TECHNOLOGIES

iolo technologies a privately held firm located in Los Angeles, produces award-winning PC tune-up software that repairs, optimizes, and protects computers running Windows. The iolo product line includes System Mechanic® and System Mechanic Professional®, a comprehensive suite of PC tune-up and security tools; iolo AntiVirus™ and iolo Personal Firewall™, software for internet security; Search and Recover™, a powerful data recovery tool; and DriveScrubber®, a utility that permanently removes drive data.

Thinking Beyond The Obvious. ThoughtOffice Ends Writer’s Block With a Single Keystroke. Writers Inspired by Expert Questions and Over 13,000,000 Word Associations

Thinking Beyond The Obvious. ThoughtOffice Ends Writer's Block With a Single Keystroke. Writers Inspired by Expert Questions and Over 13,000,000 Word Associations










Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 13, 2003

ThoughtOffice today releases the latest upgrade to their award-winning software for brainstorming, problem solving, writing and naming. This extensive product offering has built up a loyal following, allowing its users to 'brainstorm' in ways that might not have been considered previously.

The program was originally conceived and developed by Mark Alan Effinger, Serial Entrepreneur. The new version has been designed as an intuitive computerized extension to an individual's own creativity and problem-analyzing abilities.

ThoughtOffice is comprised of two major elements: The first part is a series of modules that provide several thousand questions that enable its users to qualify the task, modify ideas and evaluate goals, ideas, concepts and outcomes. It has been described as a 'spreadsheet of the mind'.

The second part is a database of more than 6,800,000 words and phrases expressing the shared concepts of today's culture and more than 13,000,000 'idea-associations', to which any number of a user's personal connections can be added. It allows new associations conceived by the user to be added to those already present. In other words, it can be 'personalized' to reflect the user's own personal backgrounds and influences.

ThoughtOffice (http://www.thoughtoffice.com) utilizes principles of association, memory-retrieval and reasoning. It prompts users to make their own connections by reminding them of thoughts, feelings, experiences, facts and images stored so deeply in memory that they normally cannot be retrieved at will.

"In the two decades I've been developing software solutions, we've invested well over 90 man-years in developing the types of questions that truly tap into memories and open the mind to clearer thinking," notes Mr. Effinger. During its development, ThoughtOffice has received a wide variety of input - from scientists to writers and business leaders. "We feel we've truly made significant progress in the areas of creativity as it applies to business. The underlying technology, coupled with a very straightforward approach, is proving exceptionally valuable to the new breed of businesspeople who are expected to have a working knowledge of many different disciplines" adds Effinger.

About IdeaFisher Software:

IdeaFisher, the technological predecessor to ThoughtOffice, was designed as an extension of individual's own thought process, enabling enhanced creative output and decisive problem solving. The software utilizes the principles of association, memory-retrieval and analogical reasoning by asking thousands of deeply probing expert questions. It then provides unique creative-answer support in the form of a patented 65,000 word and phrase association engine. 250 man-years in development, IdeaFisher has received input from some of the brightest business talent in the world.

The new core product, ThoughtOffice (http://www.thoughtoffice.com/?page_id=5), is available in both Macintosh and PC versions. Minimum system requirements are Windows 2000 to XP / 128MB RAM / 10MB free hard disk space for the PC version, or Macintosh OSX through Tiger, 64MB RAM / 10MB free hard disk space for the Macintosh version. ThoughtOffice can be expanded with any of 12 optional 'eXpertTopic' modules (http://www.thoughtoffice.com/?page_id=4), each of which is tailored to a specific discipline. ThoughtOffice CEO (http://www.thoughtoffice.com/?page_id=39) includes the core product and all 16 Q-Banks (eXpertTopic Modules). Also available are complete packages designed to meet the needs of writers, journalists, public relations professionals, advertising and marketing professionals, business consultants and public speakers.

Integrated VoIP and FoIP Software ? Enabling Telecom Devices Beyond Voice

Integrated VoIP and FoIP Software — Enabling Telecom Devices Beyond Voice











Integrated VoIP and FoIP Engine Block diagram


San Jose, CA (PRWEB) February 5, 2011

Floreat, Inc. announces the immediate availability of FloVFoIP, an integrated software suite of host and embedded Voice over IP (VoIP) and Fax over Internet Protocol (FoIP) solutions, as well as product-engineering services for global markets. This will effectively meet the growing demand for Multimedia products that support more than just Voice. The main applications are IP enabled SOHO and other gateways, Media consoles, next generation Internet-enabled Fax and Voice machines, Green Fax, Smart Phones, Tablets, VoIP Fax, T.38 VoIP and other specialized applications. In addition to feature enhancements and reduced time-to-market, this suite of FloVFoIP software and associated services lower manufacturers’ costs by more than 50% relative to other solutions.

With increasing e-communications and declining PSTN deployment, it was assumed that Fax would disappear; to everyone’s surprise, its presence has grown steadily to meet the requirements of corporations, lawyers, hospitals and even home-users. With VoIP now widely-deployed and accepted, many VoIP users need reliable Fax communication over their VoIP lines. This is made possible by products such as our FloFoIP and FloVFoIP that enable Voice and Fax communication over the Internet.

With the goal of meeting any application or communication requirement, Floreat has integrated its VoIP and FoIP software products, using 20 man-years worth of proven legacy voice and fax technology, deployed by more than a dozen industry leaders. In addition to making the integrated VFoIP work seamlessly, Floreat’s engineering team has taken care of quality related issues at the code level and thus enhanced the user-experience. FloVFoIP, our integrated VoIP and FoIP software solution, include an integrated VoIP and FoIP Framework; G.711, G.72x, iLBC codecs; VAD/CNG; G.168 Echo Canceller; Jitter Buffer management; PLC, DTMF; CP tones; G.167 AEC; Voice-Fax discrimination; T.38 FoIP relay with V.17, V.29, V.27ter, V.21ch.2 Group3 fax modems; Terminating T.38, T.30 Fax Application Software with Tiff support; QoE and performance enhancements; support of call control stacks – SIP, H.323, and others. FloVFax also supports Fax and Voice over RF links, and enables Green Fax that eliminates ink, paper and thermal transfers on mobile and portable communication devices.

Floreat also offers product-engineering services for software, firmware and hardware development. Floreat’s team has developed this expertise while enabling and supporting customers’ products with its software. The product-engineering services include software porting on embedded processors and DSPs, software optimization for footprints and CPU load, customization such as integration within any specified OS environment, development of device drivers, prototype hardware-design, and support of various AFEs. Our well-equipped test-lab facilitates testing and accommodates other development requests.

These unique, robust FloVFoIP offerings provide our customers a single source for their Voice and Fax requirements and overcome the challenges inherent in other solutions, such as incomplete vendor-offerings that do not permit a combined VoIP-FoIP product, lack of inter-operability with the numerous gateways and 100+ fax machine models available on the market, and inflexible incumbent (and obsolescing) hardware chipsets.

“Our team thrives on innovative and creative solutions to our customers’ specialized requirements in these transitional times; we thus provide an essential ingredient for their success in the market-place. With an integrated VoIP and FoIP soft-solution, we can quickly provide essential communications functionality in devices- at a fraction of current recurring expenses. Seamless migration is facilitated by our structured APIs and our engineering expertise”, said Raj Gupta, Floreat’s Vice President of Sales and Applications.
