IK Multimedia Announces iRing – the First Motion Controller for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch Music Apps and More


Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) January 08, 2014

IK Multimedia, a global technology company and leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, today announced a new technological breakthrough in mobile music making and app control: iRing™, the first motion-tracking controller for iOS music apps and more. Now musicians and others can control sound effects and other parameters of their favorite apps, in real time, using hand position, freeing them from needing to touch the screen.

iRing utilizes a wearable ring with identifiable markers, the mobile device's front-facing camera, and advanced computer vision with highly-optimized recognition algorithms built into an app, to determine the precise positioning of the ring markers, tracking their movements and position on the 3-dimensional space in front of the device. This system provides a low-cost solution and a motion-tracking device that is accurate and affordable to anyone.

The iRing controller is a lightweight, double-sided ring that the user wears between two fingers, comfortable enough to be worn while operating musical instruments or other traditional music controllers. Each ring features a linear dot pattern on one side and a triangular pattern on the other. The device camera picks up the positioning of the ring patterns and the apps convert that information into music commands for dedicated app or MIDI information, which any compatible music app can read. This means that a user can now operate up to six controllable music parameters in their preferred music apps with one or two hands gestures.

While there have been previous attempts to use a device camera to track hand positioning, they proved not to be reliable for real-world usage, due to the many variables involved in computer vision recognition and the available processing power of mobile devices. iRing solves these issues providing an accurate method for precision detection of hand position in a wide range of lighting conditions.

iRing includes two identical double-sided ring controllers, plus two complimentary apps for music applications, which target everyone from music lovers to knowledgeable musicians: iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller.

The iRing Music Maker app gives music lovers a new and incredibly fun way to create music and grooves using hand gestures, with no music knowledge required, whatsoever. Users simply launch the app and use the iRing controller to change the beats, control rhythmic elements, synth parts and effects, for hours and hours of quality entertainment. Creating music has never been so much fun!

The included iRing FX/Controller app targets skilled musicians and DJs, and converts the distance information from the rings into precise MIDI control information that can be configured by the user. This MIDI data can then be used by any compatible Core MIDI app running on the device, or even sent to a computer via Wi-Fi. Users can configure the app to control effects, filters, notes, patches and more.

The iRing FX/Controller app also doubles as a controllable audio effects processor with 16 powerful and creative effects including Delay, Stutter, Phazer, Flanger, Compression, Fuzzy, Reverb, AutoWah, Crush, Twist Up & Down, Brake, Spin and Tail. These effects can be creatively controlled by the iRing, and inserted into the device audio path for use with any music app that is Audiobus or Inter-App Audio compatible.

iRing technology will also be incorporated into core IK Multimedia apps such as GrooveMaker®, DJ Rig™, AmpliTube®, SampleTank®, VocaLive™ and more, so DJs, guitarists, vocalists, bass players, producers, keyboardists and engineers will have a new level of control to deliver powerful and unique performances.

For third-party developers that want to incorporate and implement iRing technology directly into their apps, IK is offering a free development kit and licensing program, which make it easy to take advantage of this new breakthrough technology. iRing can also be easily utilized beyond music for a wide variety of applications including gaming, health & fitness, utility and more. Developers can take advantage of the technology and improve the functionality of their apps by contacting IK via the link provided on the iRing product page.

iRing features:

Ring controller, in tandem with either of two included apps featuring advanced motion-tracking technology, allows remote control of iOS app and app parameters using hand gestures.

Great for musicians and non-musicians alike.

Includes two identical, two-pattern reversible rings, allowing for numerous control combinations and the control up to 6 effect parameters simultaneously with two hands.

Rings are unique looking, light, comfortable and provide a universal fit.

Included iRing Music Maker app allows novices to make music using hand gestures.

Included iRing FX/Controller app lets musicians and DJs create custom MIDI control setups, plus add and control audio effects when used together with other music apps via Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.

Pricing & Availability

iRing will cost $ 24.99/€19.99 (excluding taxes), and will be available in Q1 2014 in three colors (white, green and silver) at music and electronics retailers worldwide. Pre-orders are now available on the IK Multimedia online store and selected stores. iRing FX/Controller and iRing Music Maker apps will be available as free downloads from the App Store.

Horizon DataSys Announces New iPhone and Android App to Enhance Social Engagement and Customer Support


Blaine, WA (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

Horizon DataSys today unveiled a new mobile app that delivers the latest company news and its software developments. This new Horizon DataSys (HDS) Forum app gives users a new means of engaging with its online community and its staff even when they’re away from their PCs. This app is available from the App Store on Apple devices and from Google Play for Android devices.

Horizon DataSys had in 2013 expanded their customer support channels by extended their business hours, began offering international calling numbers, revamped their IM chat module, overhauled their community forum, added a more responsive support portal, and redoubled their efforts into social media (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google+, Spiceworks, YouTube, et cetra). One of the most active conversation threads in 2013 on the community forum was the discussion on how RollBack Rx has proven to be the most effective Cryptolocker ransomware removal utility available today. Horizon DataSys learned of RollBack’s ability to prevent Cryptolocker infections directly from its online users.

These new engagement channels are a direct response to the increased volume of inquiries associated with the latest releases of RollBack Rx and Drive Vaccine updated to work with Microsoft Surface Pro and Windows 8.1.

Horizon DataSys' flagship product RollBack Rx v10.2 is quickly becoming an indispensable add-on tool for Windows 8 systems. RollBack Rx completely integrates with Windows to allow for the fastest and most reliable backup and recovery software available today. RollBack Rx ("the instant PC time-machine") replaces Windows System Restore (and also Windows 8's Refresh and Reset options) with a more robust recovery capability. It empowers users to create super-fast backups (or “snapshots”) of their entire system and to effect a complete harddrive restoration back to any one of these thousands of snapshots or just data recovery of specific files or folders. RollBack Rx is also a much more efficient system restore solution than Windows built-in System Restore since it allows for more, each snapshot uses less than 1% of the harddisk capacity, and allows users to determine the system resources used and the frequency of the snapshot-taking.

Drive Vaccine v10.2, the leading non-restrictive technology for education, is designed to simplify the management of public access computers with multiple users by auto-restoring these machines back to an IT administrator-defined pristine state (or "baseline"). Drive Vaccine seamlessly returns these public access computers back to the baseline settings once one user has ended their session so that the next user is presented with a fresh baseline. Returning to this baseline discards all unwanted user changes: including erased files, installed software, infections (viruses, spyware, cookies, adware, etc.), and altered icons. But Drive Vaccine also offers unique industry-leading capabilities to retain desired changes by allowing network admins to update this pre-set baseline to incorporate the latest Windows and program updates without having to turn the protection "off" and by permitting the restoration of an earlier baseline in case of an undesired baseline update. Drive Vaccine is the ideal alternative for Windows SteadyState. This technology is being used in an increasing number of schools, libraries, airports, hotels, community centers, museums, kiosk stands, conference centers, and other shared computing environments.

Lyle Patel, the President, explained that Horizon DataSys' objective has always been to offer its customers the tools they need to maximize the availability of their resources and to streamline their IT operations. Ensuring that clients get their endpoint systems and servers back up and running quickly after any PC-related problems. Patel also noted that, "This also means that if there's any issue with our own software we don’t want to be the bottleneck in your streamlined IT operations. So we’ve committed ourselves to respect our customers' valuable time by reducing the turn-over times from when a servicedesk ticket is submitted to us and our techs have successfully resolved it to your satisfaction."

Jester Santos, Customer Service Manager, added that, "Our goal for 2014 is to be more accessible. Some people don't like making phone calls, some prefer to chat using IM, and others email, and so forth. We want to accommodate their preferred method of contact. They can even send us snail mail if they like." And a key part of this envisioned better user experience is the shortest possible ticket turnover times for customer service, sales, and technical support requests.

According to Santos, the main objective for the coming year is to offer seamless engagement with customers by facilitating a multi-channel communication platform through chats, email, webinars, phone conversations, blogs, forums, and so forth. We strive to exceed customer expectations in quality, delivery, reliability, and service as we build a productive relationship based on exceptional customer satisfaction. The new Horizon DataSys (HDS) Community Forum mobile app should allow customers to keep up with the latest news and developments. Customers can even submit questions to the Horizon DataSys Community and should get a response back that they can receive on their smart phones.

Horizon DataSys has relied on their community of loyal users to spread product awareness. In fact, Patel attributed the greater part of the rise in adoption rates for RollBack Rx and Drive Vaccine directly to personal recommendations. Patel: "We want to deepen further customer engagement through an overall positive customer experience that customers share with their friends and family." So, in addition to personal recommendations, Patel also divulged that they're working on harnessing crowd-sourcing in order to offer new language translations, spread news of special promotions, to do beta version testing, and other improvements that customers have themselves offered their assistance toward. “We value our customers' ideas and suggestions. We want to offer them platforms to express this feedback and suggestions,” he said. “We already have the best-in-class instant backup and recovery solutions based on state-of-the-art technology but we just need to spread the word.”

About Horizon DataSys:

Horizon DataSys Corporation is a privately held software company headquartered in Blaine, Washington which develops, publishes, and distributes branded computer software applications specializing in end-point PC management, OS integrity, and instant restore.

Industry Analyst Jeff Kagan on US Cellular Selling iPhone Nov 8, Finally


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Regional wireless carrier U.S. Cellular now plans to sell iPhones for the first time on Nov. 8, according to the trade, Twice, Oct 21.

Tech analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.

“Congratulations to US Cellular on offering the iPhone for the first time. This is what your customers will want and this should help you hang onto customers rather than losing them to competitors who do offer the phone,” says Principal analyst Jeff Kagan.

“US Cellular has been through quite a bit of ups and down in recent years. Suddenly things seem to be looking up a bit. Let’s hope they can keep heading in that same direction,” says Industry analyst Kagan.

“US Cellular has stayed away from the iPhone until now because of Apple’s tough financial demands. US Cellular thought they could do just fine without the iPhone. Then after they recovered they could consider it. Well quite a bit of water has gone under that bridge and changes have occurred,” says Kagan.

“New CEO, new strategy and now the new iPhone will be available from US Cellular. Kenneth Meyers has only been CEO of US Cellular since June, but I have been impressed so far. Let’s hope he can repair the company and lead it to growth once again,” says Kagan.

Now the iPhone is available from a variety of players including AT&T Mobility, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, C Spire Wireless and now US Cellular. “I expect the iPhone will continue to be offered on smaller carriers as time goes on,” says Kagan.

Hello World! My Name is Wally – the Stick on Leather Wallet for iPhone


Charleston, SC (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

In Distil Union's second successful crowd-funding campaign, Wally blasted beyond their Kickstarter goal within just four short days, ultimately raising over 700% of the goal. Since the close of the campaign in March, happy backers have received their Wally pledges ahead of schedule a welcome surprise in the Kickstarter world. And now with Kickstarter complete and web pre-orders already fulfilled, Wally is available for purchase and ships worldwide.

The Story of Wally:

It all began when the designers at Distil Union noticed a problem: "Grabbing a quick bite up the street, we found ourselves having to carry a bag or wallet when all we needed was our iPhone, debit card, ID and cash," said Nate Justiss, Industrial Designer at Distil Union. Dissatisfied with the bulky card-carrying cases out there, the team literally went back to the drawing board and created a revolutionary way to carry the essentials:


Slim - Accommodates the 3 cards users carry most
Smart - Securely attaches directly to iPhone and most cases
Discreet - Pull-tab action conceals and reveals the contents
Handsome - Made using Italian leather and grosgrain ribbon

Proudly unlike any other iPhone wallet solution, Wally is a handcrafted leather pocket that grabs directly onto the back of the iPhone (and most cases) to hold what users want, where they want it. Wally doesn't broadcast to the world that it's a wallet! Instead of card slots that show off user's contents, the discreet pull-tab provides access only when needed. The contents stay undercover until the user pulls the integrated ribbon and the cards peek out from Wally. Pushing on the cards retracts the ribbon. "People's faces light up when they see Wally in action. Remember pop-up books? It's the same sort of magic but for us adults," explained Adam Printz, Distil Union's second Industrial Designer. This patent-pending design is a simple, clever solution to an everyday problem which is what the Charleston-based team is all about.

Did somebody say Father's Day?

While wallets are a fairly predictable gift for Father's Day, there's nothing predictable about Wally. From the case-free design to the surprise pull-tab action, Wally never fails to impress. But wait, theres more: "Be sure to introduce your Dad to the Lemon App I digitized the rest of my bulky wallet, so all I carry is my iPhone and Wally! advises Justiss, a now-reformed Costanza-wallet offender. "We've had guys email us to say they haven't had any back pain since trading their fat back-pocket wallets for a slim Wally! It makes sense, Wally loves helping people," said Lindsay Windham, Creative Director at Distil Union.

Handcrafted from Italian leather that softens and develops a rich patina over time, Wally comes in either Ninja Black or Cowboy Brown for both iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5, available exclusively from Distil Union for $ 49.99.

Distil Union is a member of the Charleston Digital Corridor.
