eCommerce Agency Chameleon Digital Media Announce Development of their New Voracio Responsive eCommerce Platform, a “One Platform for All Devices” Approach to Online Retail


Huddersfield, West Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 9 October 2013

In the summer of 2013, the Huddersfield based agency made the decision to re-develop their enterprise eCommerce platform from the ground up, taking a mobile first approach. When complete in winter 2013, the new responsive eCommerce platform will be ready to roll out to their existing and prospective clients. All features of their legacy platform will be maintained, plus many new features will be available. The Voracio ePOS integration for true multi channel retailing is a further advance in their field of expertise. Codenamed ‘Voracio,’ Chameleon see this as future proofing project which will result in “one platform for all devices” and represent a major advance in their stature with the professional and enterprise eCommerce arena.

Company owner and eCommerce entrepreneur James Noon quoted:

“There’s plenty of content online discussing the debate of mCommerce vs Responsive eCommerce. In a nutshell, using a mobile commerce platform entails having a standalone website that is developed specifically for use on mobile devices. A responsive eCommerce platform is where one website will cater for all devices, mobile, tablet, desktop, covering all viewports.”

“In the past, there were two types of websites a business could choose to have developed to cater for the mobile audience. One was to ask their web developer to build a stripped down mobile version of the desktop site, using redirects for mobile traffic, the other being to commission a mobile specialist firm to develop a separate mobile site. These approaches served well in the past, however are becoming outdated, both having considerable and increasing drawbacks in regard to costs and user experience. Here are just a few of the major issues,” added James.

On discussing the negatives of traditional mobile development, James noted the following:

“Both of the above are often only optimized for a limited number of devices. Such is the diversity of mobile devices these days, this means that the users browser experience is compromised. Mobile sites require redirects, having different URLs to the desktop site which makes SEO efforts much more difficult.”

“Having separately hosted sites often causes issues with content synchronization, including expensive integration development costs. This is because the mobile and desktop site usually pull content from two separate data sources,” James continued.

“Often the user experience from mobile to desktop is inconsistent, your most loyal customers may struggle to perform tasks they are familiar with on your desktop site when browsing your mobile site. Features may differ too; for exampl, your loyalty points scheme may not be available to mobile users, again compromising user experience and conversions. Managing content for two separate sites makes difficult and more time consuming work for marketing departments.”

James then continued to discuss the advantages of a responsive website:

“Content maintenance is easier, changes to your site are made through a single CMS; this is better for accuracy and productivity. Responsive sites use one set of URLs, whatever the device the URL for any page will be the same. This is better for SEO efforts and conversion page optimization. Another fact is that Google themselves recommend responsive web design, as seen in their guidelines for mobile development.”

“Marketing campaigns are easier to manage, more cost effective and provide a higher return on investment as the users landing page is automatically optimized for their viewport. Responsive sites can be shared more easily and importantly the user experience is consistent across multiple devices. All things considered, responsive sites are more cost effective.”

But what of the performance and technical implications for a responsive site?

“We’ve studied the technical implications of responsive sites in great detail,” said James who heads up the eCommerce platform. “There is some opinion that responsive sites can be heavy on load times, however many articles we’ve studied mentioning such issues are outdated and solutions have already been developed. We have always taken website performance into consideration, for this RWD project we are implementing a number of techniques to ensure optimum performance for all devices, for example we use RESS (Responsive with Server Side coding) and device detection alongside media queries to determine what content to feed to the user.”

The company concluded several months back that responsive eCommerce is without doubt the way to go, they believe it is the future of online retail and as such have invested much time and focus on the development of their new responsive ecommerce platform, codenamed ‘Voracio.’ They are looking forward to rolling out our first sites later this year.

Company Information:

Chameleon Digital Media are a growing force in the eCommerce platform arena. Established in 1998 as a graphic and web design agency, over the past several years Chameleon have invested heavily in the development of their own eCommerce platform. This platform is used by scores of online retailers throughout the UK. Chameleon are midway through the development of their all new responsive ecommerce platform, code named ‘Voracio’ which makes use of the best in responsive web design techniques. It is set to be one of the first fully responsive ecommerce platforms available in the UK, taking a one platform for all devices approach.

The Huddersfield based business are a full service digital agency, offering ecommerce, CRM integration, web design, online marketing, SEO, PPC and branding. Their success has been attributed to having the right mix of creativity and technical expertise alongside a friendly and personal service.

Fujitsu Joins-Up with TVonics to Bring First of Its Kind All-European Digital Terrestrial Set Top Box to Market

Frankfurt, Germany, and Pencoed, Wales, UK, (PRWEB) August 25, 2005

Fujitsu Microelectronics Europe (FME) has been working closely with UK digital set top box (STB) manufacturer, TVonics Limited, who is commencing mass production of its stylish, digital terrestrial set top box for the UK and European markets. This unique, European designed STB uses key components that have been either designed or manufactured within Europe. The TVonics designed product, which delivers fast, responsive performance at an affordable price, will be on sale from the end of September 2005.

This new STB, manufactured in the UK by Sony for TVonics, is initially being rolled-out to serve the high-growth UK digital terrestrial market for Freeview services. Offering a distinctive styling and form factor, it offers end consumers a refreshing alternative to the traditional silver or grey rectangular boxes currently on sale.

Designed to minimise ecological impact through the use of lead-free components, a recyclable aluminium enclosure, and low power consumption, it will conform to the Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) EU mandate for products sold from January 2006 onwards. It is expected to be in high demand by British consumers, eager to enjoy the popular range of digital television programmes available on Freeview.

TVonics selected FME’s ‘SmartMPEG’ MB86H25B decoder for use in the new STB, due to its low power consumption & system cost, which was made possible through its optimised silicon integration design techniques. The chip was designed at FME’s Multimedia Development Centre in Frankfurt, Germany, and requires just one SDRAM and a Flash memory, consuming less than 700mW in full operation.

This 3rd Generation SmartMPEG device has enjoyed excellent success around the world, with over 10 million unit deployments. The design win at TVonics spearheads its expansion into the buoyant European digital terrestrial television market.

FME’s SmartMPEG family allows many different applications to be executed - in this case an optimised DVB-T Adapter with interactivity - but it is also suited to automotive applications; Personal Video Recorder, Dual/Twin Receiver, Portable and semi-professional applications; as well as satellite receivers, when used in combination with Fujitsu's QPSK Silicon Tuner.

The two companies were able to combine their experience in order to reduce the STB product development time to just 6 months. This was partly due to the application software being based on the Cabot Aurora DVB Middleware reference port, carried out last year between FME & Cabot Communications.

Production of the circuit board, product assembly, test and packing is being carried out by Sony Manufacturing, Pencoed Technology Park, UK - a natural choice for TVonics which is based on-site within the Technium Digital@Sony, technology incubation centre, established by Sony and the Welsh Development Agency in 2004.

Paul Fellows, CEO of TVonics said, “The silicon chip technology and technical support provided by Fujitsu, together with the software technology of Cabot, has enabled TVonics to enter the market quickly with a product delivering superior performance at a very competitive price. This development has been an excellent example of how three European based design groups can work together to deliver class leading products to market quickly”.

He continued, “The excellent co-operation from Fujitsu has led to very close links being forged between the two companies resulting in the perfect design mix. The new box will be announced and featured on our Stand 215, Hall 5 at IBC 2005 in Amsterdam from 9th-13th September”.

Johannes Richter, Multimedia Business Unit Director at FME, added, “The experience and professionalism from TVonics perfectly matched our own when it came to the design of an elegant, unique product to bring to market in the UK and Europe. We are extremely happy to have been part of this design and look forward to a long relationship with TVonics”.

He added, “We were able to achieve this fastest turnaround time from design start to production start in just 6 months including Cabot’s Pan-European Aurora DVB middleware stack with MHEG-5 functionality, because of the skilled engineers at TVonics designing a right-first-time solution, and the availability of Middleware from Cabot”.

Darren Standing, Business Development Manager at Cabot Communications commented, “Since being selected by TVonics in February 2005 to support its development programme, we have worked closely with engineers at FME and TVonics to deliver for the first time, an Aurora DVB-T Middleware market deployment running on FME's SmartMPEG technology. TVonics has used the performance and flexibility of Aurora to rapidly integrate its own innovatively styled user interface, system software and device drivers to deliver a market leading DVB-T solution in record time”.

There are up to 80 million TVs and VCRs in the UK, and the British government wants all receiving equipment to be able to handle digital signals by 2012, when analogue broadcasting will be switched off. Throughout Europe, an estimated 600 million units will need to be converted or replaced with digitally-enabled equipment in the next 10 years.

Figures above are based on typical usage of 2.5 TVs or VCRs in all registered TV households.

StrandVision and Shuttle Computer Group, Inc. Announce Digital Media Player Marketing Agreement for Electronic Signage Networks


Menomonie, WI (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

StrandVision LLC and Shuttle Computer Group, Inc. today announced a marketing agreement under which StrandVision will sell a new digital signage point-of-display digital media player. The device is based on Shuttle DS61 hardware that comes preloaded with, and is optimized to display, StrandVision's patented digital signage content software.

Branded the StrandVision R360 Digital Media Player, the new player is a slim (6.5" x 7.5" x 1.8"), powerful x86-based Linux digital signage platform that offers the best quality, performance and connectivity to process high-quality digital media. When coupled with StrandVision's Internet-based, hassle-free, digital signage software, it presents an unparalleled electronic signage package.

"At StrandVision our goal is to make digital signage setup and administration as quick and easy as possible and the R360 Media Player supports that goal," commented Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. "Customers simply plug the device into their display and connect it to the Internet. It automatically selects one of the StrandVision digital signage host servers from the cloud, logs in using a preloaded username and password, initializes the connection and begins transmitting the user's digital signage content in seconds. Remotely managed digital signage doesn't get any easier."

The R360 Digital Media Player works seamlessly with StrandVision's cloud digital signage servers and requires virtually no local administration. The fully configured player includes universal hardware to mount the unit directly onto a display or a wall mount, making installation quick and simple.

"Joining Shuttle's innovative hardware with StrandVision's software creates an easy-to-implement and manage package that will meet its customers' needs," said Marty Lash, director, sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc.

Complete Digital Signage Solution

==============================

The R360 Digital Media Player is remotely updated and managed by the StrandVision patented digital signage software minimizing end-user housekeeping. Each customer unit constantly receives digital signage content updates from the StrandVision Web portal yet can run independently if there is an Internet interruption. The StrandVision player is capable of self-correcting most issues and automatically sends system performance updates and alerts to StrandVision and digital signage system administrators.

In addition to a more powerful processor and increased storage and memory, the new StrandVision player includes several upgrades and features. Wi-Fi® communication, previously a $ 79.99 option, is now included; a DVI™ video output has been added, along with the previously available HDMI® port for connection to digital displays; a VESA™ mounting kit, which can save up to $ 150.00 for specialized wall mounts.

Priced at $ 699.99 (a $ 180.00 reduction from previous StrandVision media players), the fully configured system, including StrandVision's patented digital signage display software, is available immediately directly from StrandVision and through authorized resellers and system integrators. An optional two-year warranty that extends the standard one-year warranty to a total of three years is available for $ 89.99.

Exclusive: New Masterflex L/S Digital Modular Dispensing Drives from Cole-Parmer Enhance Flexibility


Vernon Hills, IL (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

The new Masterflex® L/S® Digital Modular Dispensing Drives from Cole-Parmer offer three dispensing modes and precision motors for accurate, repetitive dispensing. With a modular format that allows users to place the motor and controller separately, these units are an optimal choice for limited spaces, hoods, or isolation chambers.

These peristaltic pump drives feature a programmable dispense interval that lets users set the delay between dispense cycles for convenient, automated dispensing by time or by volume. An antidrip function ensures dispensing accuracy. Precise PWM speed control (±0.1%) maximizes accuracy and efficiency while the brushless motor provides quiet, maintenance-free reliability. Programmed calibration ensures dispense and display accuracy—the drive stores one calibration value per tubing size. Program the drive via the simple membrane keypad or control all functions remotely; a keypad lock/unlock feature protects settings. A graphical LCD indicates four operating modes for continuous run, timed dispense, copy dispense, and volume dispense.

Choose from the modular drive with a benchtop controller or the washdown modular drive with wall-mount controller. The benchtop model includes a splash-resistant ABS plastic controller housing that is IP33 rated. The wall-mount controller housing is powder-coated aluminum with a powder-coated steel drive housing; both are IP66/NEMA 4X-rated for washdown.
