Prestigio Releases New Widescreen Notebook-Based Multimedia Center with InstantON Support

Seoul, South Korea (PRWEB) February 8, 2005

Prestigio, one of the most dynamic international manufacturers of LCD displays and TVs, mobile computers, and plasma TVs, has unveiled a new high-performance notebook-based multimedia center featuring brilliantly sharp panoramic 15.4" WSXGA+ LCD screen, 256MB of dedicated video RAM for incredible gains in graphic performance, InstantON function, and sloped keyboard.

The brand-new Nobile 159W is the second multimedia center in Prestigio’s mobile computer line-up. Just like its predecessor Visconte 120 it is capable of instantly playing music CDs, DVD videos, MP3s and browsing digital photos without loading the operation system thanks to its InterVideo® InstantON™ feature. And the PC Card remote control included into the basic configuration allows to control the machine from a distance in InstantON mode and even shut down Windows XP with a press of a button in Windows mode. The new model also supports internal (mini PCI) TV-tuner option. Another pleasant feature meant to provide comfortable typing and prevention of wrist pain (carpal tunnel syndrome) is the highly ergonomic uniquely-designed sloped keyboard.

On top of that, Nobile 159W can boast of an enhanced resolution of WSXGA+ 1680x1050. In addition, the new multimedia center has been equipped with ATI M11 256MB external graphics with ATI PowerPlay™ technology support for less energy consumption and incredible surge in performance for 3D gaming, business applications, and CAD modeling. At the same time, its mobility has not been sacrificed for performance, and the thickness has remained ultra-slim for a performance class notebook (25-33 mm sloped). The Centrino platform allows for increased battery life and wireless connectivity.

Nobile 159W is powered by Intel® Pentium® M processor of up to 2.0 GHz (Dothan supported). The notebook’s compatibility and connectability with other devices is ensured through a wide selection of ports. Nobile 159W is equipped with 3 USB 2.0 ports, RJ-45 Ethernet plug, RJ-11 modem plug, external VGA port, IEEE 1394 port, S-Video output port, headphone/SPDIF jack, PC Card Type II, and mic-in jack, 4-in-1 Card Reader port.

The brand-new multimedia center’s owner will by no means remain without a connection with the world, since Nobile 159W has extensive communication capabilities. It possesses a V.92 fax modem, an integrated 10/100 Mbps Ethernet card, a Bluetooth expansion port, and a 4-in-1 card reader.

The available optional extras include a PCMCIA TV Tuner, as well as a unique Port Replicator which, unlike other similar devices, is connected to the VGA Out port rather than to a USB port, thus saving the highly demanded USB ports for external devices while providing numerous additional ports.

Overall, Nobile 159W is a versatile multimedia center based on notebook form-factor which is able to meet the strictest requirements of gamers, managers, graphic designers, and all other individuals looking for a reliable high-performance machine with excellent graphics and communication possibilities. Nobile 159W will be available across Eastern Europe, Middle East and Asia by mid-February.

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.

hedspace, a new and exciting creative multimedia studio in the heart of Hackney Wick

London (PRWEB UK) 31 July 2012

hedspace, a new and exciting creative multimedia studio in the heart of Hackney Wick, has started to land some exciting work.

This company started in winter of 2011, placing the utmost importance on engaging closely with clients.

hedspace use creative thinking to ensure that clients and creative staff work closely and share a common hedspace. Its a simple concept, yet one that has proven to be very successful for the company.

Founder Neil Wickenden says, for our clients it feels like having an in-house creative team, but without the enormous overheads of paying for staff during the quiet periods. The formula seems to be working well.

In this current climate of austerity hedspace has grown, in the few months, from a single-handed design and creative studio to a multimedia studio that now has 34 creatives working along-side large multinational corporate clients, offering creative services including Graphic Design, Branding (Logo/Identity), Web-Digital, Photography, video Production solutions and more.

The video production department has grown surprisingly fast, producing promotional videos and pop videos for businesses and for a small local band that are soon launching. We can drop in names when the release date has passed.

The company has had a very busy few months and employed some amazingly talented illustration artists who have been producing images for a firm of international jewellers.

Its not been an easy start to 2012 but, as with most of the East End, things are looking up for hedspace.

Multimedia Exhibition Deftly Bridges the Divide Between Hand and Mind at Otis College of Art and Design

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 02, 2012

Fusing visual statements with devotion to detailed craft, Meticulosity, a multimedia exhibition at Otis College of Art and Designs Ben Maltz Gallery, features the work of eleven Southern California-based artists and three poets who work in a variety of different formats: sculpture, painting, digital media, photography, video, textiles, and installation.

Artists: Tanya Batura, Hilary Brace, Eileen Cowin, Linda Hudson, Gegam Kacherian, Otis Alumnus Sandeep Mukherjee (Fine Arts '96), Ross Rudel, Linda Stark, Arthur Taussig, Elizabeth Turk, Samira Yamin. Poets: Graduate Writing Faculty members Guy Bennett, Dennis Phillips, and Martha Ronk.

The title Meticulosity references both the technical/formal approach of the artists and the spiritual focus of their creative efforts -- their tenacity and continuity. The premise for Meticulosity is that these artworks are created in a meditative mode, or through a trance-like process, and that the painstaking exactitude expressed by these works is intended for the viewer to perceive along with the work's conceptual values. We connect that visual meticulousness to a sense of the ineffable, or that which is beyond words, and to the meaning of beauty.

Our interest is in bridging the way in which the conceptual and the visual seem to have diverged. As curators, our self-appointed task was to avoid preclusions on either side of this divide. We are presenting exceptionally thoughtful artwork where the visual acuity is as important as the originating idea, and have selected a variety of genres to underscore the plurality of our point of view.

Co-curators Meg Linton and John David O'Brien

Leah Ollman, Los Angeles Times art critic, calls Meticulosity a meeting of the mind and spirit. In her review, Ollman writes, The increasing academization of the art world and the shift, among many artists, to a practice that involves actions outside the studio rather than objects made within it, have reinforced that notion of divergence: beauty headed in one direction, brains another. Either/Or. "Meticulosity" makes a case for And.

This project is sponsored in part by the Otis Board of Governors, and supported in part by the Pasadena Art Alliance.
