PDFTron Systems Ships a New PDFNet SDK Update

Vancouver, Canada, (PRWEB) July 24, 2005

PDFTron Systems, a leading software developer specializing in PDF, SVG, and PostScript technologies, announced the release of a new update to PDFNet SDK (v.2.6). The new release focuses on improved compression in PDFNet SDK, utilizing the latest and most advanced compression technologies available on the market, such as JPEG2000 and JBIG2.

PDFNet SDK is a high-quality, industry-strength PDF library meeting requirements of the most demanding and diverse applications. PDFNet SDK gives software developers a comprehensive PDF toolkit with a variety of options for PDF document manipulation. Using PDFNet you can write stand-alone, cross-platform and reliable commercial applications that can read, write, edit, print and display PDF documents. PDFNet is available as a 100%.Net component that can be used from any .Net language (e.g. C#, VB, and J#) and as a cross-platform C/C++ library.

The new release features a brand new high-performance, high-quality JPEG2000 engine which can be used to decode and process any JP2 embedded stream in PDF. The JPEG2000 filter (introduced in PDF 1.5) decodes data that has been encoded using the JPEG2000 compression method, an international standard for the compression and packaging of image data. JPEG2000 defines a wavelet-based method for image compression that can give better size reduction than other methods such as regular JPEG or CCITT.

In addition to enhanced JPEG2000 decoder support, the PDFNet toolkit also features new JBIG2 decompression support. All PDFNet users can now decode and preview monochrome (1 bit per pixel) images created using the PDFNet library. JBIG2 provides considerably better compression than the existing CCITT standard. Images of pages containing text in any language compress particularly well, with typical compression ratios of 20:1 to 50:1 for a page full of text. PDFNet has been supporting lossless and lossy JBIG2 encoding in previous product releases for more than a year.

Another enhancement to the PDFNet library includes improved font substitution using all available fonts. This means that PDF documents with missing fonts (i.e. fonts that are not embedded) will render more accurately in the PDF rasterizer/viewer.

Other customer-driven enhancements include numerous bug fixes, new sample code projects and other incremental improvements.

For a comprehensive listing of features available in PDFNet, please have a look at our PDFNet Feature Chart at:

Availability of PDFNet

A fully functional, 60-day evaluation version of PDFNet SDK is available for download at:

Pricing for PDFNet SDK is based on what is intended to be done with the PDF Library. CPU Licenses of PDFNet SDK can be purchased directly online at: PDFTron also offers pricing models for software developers who will be distributing PDFNet SDK as part of their application (OEM/Redistribution), as well as for corporate customers who wish to integrate PDFNet as part of their internal application (Internal Use).

Weaved Announces Partnerships with Gemtek and Tatung to Develop Headstart Kits for Internet of Everything (IoE) Devices

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) January 08, 2014

Weaved, a worldwide technology leader in Internet-of-Everything (IoE) web-based connectivity services announced their partnerships today with Gemtek, a world-leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, and Tatung, a global leader in OEM/ODM services, to collaborate on HeadStart Kits for connected-device developers. HeadStart is the first and only complete hardware and software design kit that enables the next wave of IoE devices to market in record time and with minimal upfront development costs. HeadStart kits are also expected to provide the ideal connected device platform to address the grassroots effort by millions of developers worldwide to prototype innovative new connected devices and unique applications.

Everyday projects are being launched to bring a new class of connected-devices to market for consumers and businesses alike. Early success stories like Wi-Fi cameras (home video surveillance), thermostats (home energy management), or smart plugs and lighting products have proven the market for connected-devices is robust and growing faster than any other hardware product category. The market research firm ABI Research’s (UK) latest data on the Internet-of-Everything (IoE) shows that there are more than 10 billion wirelessly connected devices in the market today; with over 30 billion devices expected by 2020.

In addition, developer targeted products like open, small form-factor computer platforms, and 3D printers, have proven that millions of developers worldwide, small and large, are willing to purchase an affordable, standardized hardware platform with embedded software to rapidly prototype unique solutions for their own needs.

Ryo Koyama, CEO of Weaved, explained “The mass adoption of mobile computing, has put ‘remote controls’ in the hands of consumers, which in turn is driving the demand for smarter devices, which in turn is spurring dozens of successful crowd sourced IOE campaigns. Unfortunately, many of these projects stall in the step from prototype to volume production. In the same way that Amazon transformed the web 2.0 industry by having a ready for market platform, we expect the Headstart kits to impact the IOE market with complete ready for market services, software and hardware. Developers can innovate with the assurance that a billion dollar ODM is just a phone call away for volume production.”

Dr. Alan Pan, Chief Strategy Officer for the Consumer Business Group of Tatung stated, “Tatung has successfully re-engineered its business process of ODM/OEM. We aim at building an infrastructure to seamlessly integrate all phases of product design, engineering/testing, and production for customers who are looking for quick time-to-market based on our pre-tested hardware. This change is necessary in order to serve the uprising community-supported, product innovation business opportunities.” Dr. Pan further commented, “Weaved is a leader in fostering an application development platform that can well align with our selection of hardware. We are pleased to partner with Weaved in accomplishing this goal. ”    

Chih-Hsu Yen, BU General Manager at Gemtek Taiwan added “Many connected device projects fail for lack of mass-production worthy hardware. At Gemtek we are experts in wireless broadband hardware design, mandatory global compliance testing, packaging, and volume manufacturing with the reliability consumer’s demand. Gemtek is partnering with Weaved to create a complete bundle of hardware and software resources for IoE device developers”

The HeadStart Kit contains all the essential pieces to quickly build a connected device controlled over the Internet from a Smartphone App, mobile device, or browser. In addition, existing devices can easily become “connected” and controlled over the Internet by integrating and embedding the HeadStart Kit into their existing design.

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.

Scott Security Systems and SecurTek Join Forces to Better Serve Vancouver and Lower Mainland Customers

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

It turns out their timing was perfect, according to Scott Security Systems President, Scott Granger.

“We had been exploring ways to take our company to the next level in an extremely competitive and rapidly expanding industry. We had come to the conclusion a partner with the right capacity, access to emerging technologies and a strong national presence was required. That partner would have to be willing not only to invest in our vision, but also had to have the resources to fully support it,” Granger noted.

“As a result of our search,” Granger explains, “SecurTek made arrangements to fly out and introduce themselves. We each liked what we saw and ultimately a deal was struck. Saskatchewan-based SecurTek became that critical partner that would carry us into the future by making it possible for us to keep focusing on what we do best: service, sales and installations.”

Granger soon realized the extent of SecurTek’s commitment to growing its market presence locally, and the vast range of monitoring technologies at its disposal: “They offer exclusive new video, lone worker and access control monitoring. They have integrated technologies that make alarm verification easier and ensure more effective responses in emergency situations.” Granger adds: “while the details of our agreement were being finalized, SecurTek was already training us on their latest Videofied wireless cameras, popular on construction sites and at locations with copper theft problems.”

SecurTek President and CEO Darrell Jones pointed out that SecurTek takes great pride in the relationship it enjoys with its network of independently-owned authorized dealers, noting that Scott Security Systems is an ideal fit and addition to this network:

“Unlike many of the large international monitoring companies, SecurTek does not operate its own installation division. We rely on the knowledge of the local expert dealers who are well aware of the prevailing safety and security concerns in their communities. That is why making our monitoring resources available to Scott Security Systems seemed mutually desirable from all angles. We believe that ultimately, it is the customer who will enjoy the benefits that stem from this strategic alliance.”

Jones also adds that as Vancouver’s Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley neighbourhoods evolve, so do the methods and required approaches needed to keep the people and their valuables safe. Going forward, SecurTek and Scott Security Systems working together makes this goal more easily achievable.

About Scott Security Systems:

Scott Security Systems is a well-respected and trustworthy company which has provided electronic security systems, video surveillance systems and access control to the Vancouver and Lower Mainland marketplace since 1978. Their major focus has been delivering an extremely high level of service to its extensive customer base. They are also certified to install and service ULC approved alarm systems.

About SecurTek:

SecurTek is a leading provider of monitoring solutions and event related information services with an extensive dealer network and strategic partnerships, servicing customers across Canada. A subsidiary of SaskTel Telecommunications, SecurTek was awarded the Five Diamond Certification for providing superior monitoring service in the North American security industry by the US-based Central Station Alarm Association (CSAA). SecurTek monitoring stations are Underwriters' Laboratories of Canada (ULC) certified. This means SecurTek meets or exceeds the highest industry standards regarding call overflow, staffing requirements, response procedures, computer systems and backup power systems. SecurTek offers burglary, commercial, fire, environmental, medical, video, home automation, access control and residential monitoring services.
