SWI's Water Cam provides hard to catch water angles for iTV360 live webcast

LANDOVER, Md. - Feb. 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SecurWireless, Inc., provider of wireless video surveillance solutions for government, state and local, and commercial applications, partnered with live web casting company, iTV360, to provide live video coverage of the 2008 Mavericks Surf Contest, that began January 12th, in Half Moon Bay, California. Strapped to the back of a jet ski, SecurWireless' waterproof Water Cam provided live video coverage from the water of the famed surfing event.

MySpace's live stream of the Maverick's big-wave surfing contest drew 300,000 viewers during the event, making it the third-biggest streaming event in the Web site's history.

"We were very excited to have the opportunity to support iTV360.com and The Mavericks Surf Contest by providing our rugged wireless video system for the in-the-water view of this amazing event," said Corby Lawrence, SecurWireless President and CEO. "Our technology's ruggedability and reliability, proven in the Military market, easily crosses into the equally rugged world of surfing and live web casting. Our systems were designed to provide critical video data, where there are gaps in coverage, or where infrastructure simply does not exist, to those that need it. In this case, it's the fans."

"The 2008 live web cast was something special. The iTV360 live water angle is absolutely key to getting the full feeling from a wave like Mavericks." said Jay Johnson, Director at iTV360. "The technology is incredible to bring the live water cam shot from the back of a the jet ski to over 300,000 in cyberspace, not to mention the massive crowd at AT&T park in San Francisco. The broadcast of this contest has come a long way in the 5 years we have been covering the action."

The Mavericks Surf Contest(R) is world famous, and for good reason. Supremely harsh conditions and the giant, unpredictable waves both contribute to the Contest's allure. So do the frigid waters, dangerous currents, jagged rocks and the ever-present threat of the Great White Shark. When Mother Nature and a little luck combine to produce the notoriously massive waves, 24 legendary surfers will get The Call. When they do, they will have a mere 24 hours to prepare themselves to face the extreme conditions, the thunderous waves, and each other.

About iTV360 (www.itv360.com)
iTV360 is the premier live web cast production team for the action sports, music and entertainment industries.

The list features a profile for each company, mostly based on interviews with management. And, it is searchable according to numerous criteria including industry, city, state, region, and year founded.

Methodology was based on revenue growth measurement from 2003 through 2006.

After-Warranty Service Provider Partners with Manufacturers to Reduce the High Cost of Replacement Light Engines

NORCROSS, Ga. - July 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Hong Video Technology, Inc. (HVT), the leading outsource supplier of digital light processing (DLP(R)) light engine repair, today announced that it has surpassed 10,000 DLP light engines repaired. The milestone follows the recent completion of HVT's expanded and renovated electronics repair facility, which included construction of a large darkroom that more than tripled its capacity for alignment and testing of DLP light engines.

HVT pioneered a reliable DLP light engine repair process for Toshiba in 2005, and today repairs six of the most popular DLP light engines used for DLP televisions.

The high-quality repair provided by HVT offers a cost-effective alternative to purchasing and replacing defective DLP light engines with new light engines. With a reliable source for replacement light engines throughout the product life cycle, manufacturers can dramatically reduce the need for costly final buys.

"HVT forms an alliance with manufacturers to help them reduce the high cost of replacement parts. With HVT's innovation, these CE giants are able to reuse expensive components, like DLP light engines, that otherwise would be scrapped," attests Chris Fabian, a Consumer Electronics consultant.

"With the substantial cost savings, manufacturers can pass savings on to the independent servicers who support their products," Fabian added.

In addition to cost savings, repair and recycling of costly DLP light engines contributes to compliance with environmental legislation.

HVT Triples DLP Light Engine Repair and Recycling Capacity

Author: Hong Video Technology, Inc.
Dateline: Mon, 08 Jan 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NORCROSS, Ga. - Jan. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Hong Video Technology, Inc. (HVT) is pleased to announce the completion of its expanded and renovated electronics display repair facility, including construction of a large darkroom that more than triples its capacity for alignment and testing of digital light processing (DLP) light engines.”

Repair/Recycling Capacity to Support Environmental Efforts of Consumer Electronics Manufacturers

NORCROSS, Ga. - Jan. 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Hong Video Technology, Inc. (HVT) is pleased to announce the completion of its expanded and renovated electronics display repair facility, including construction of a large darkroom that more than triples its capacity for alignment and testing of digital light processing (DLP) light engines.

(c) Send2PressDuring the second half of 2006, HVT experienced a 500% increase in the number of DLP light engines it refurbished. The increase is due in part to a maturing market for HDTV, which uses digital light engines as the primary light source in DLP displays.

The increased volume also stems from a sharp rise in the number of manufacturers and OEMs that have chosen to repair and recycle defective displays, rather than dispose of them. HVT currently repairs five of the six most popular DLP light engines used for DLP televisions.

"The U.S. electronics industry on the whole is becoming more sensitive to environmental concerns, forced somewhat by the compliance requirements set by the European Union and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. But what's really great about this is that what's good for the environment also costs less for manufacturers and ultimately consumers," advises Chris Fabian, a Consumer Electronics consultant for HVT.

In addition to a darkroom dedicated to DLP light engine repair, HVT's newly renovated facility includes 14,000 square feet of climate- and ESD-controlled production area and a 1700 sq. ft. class 10,000 clean room. For certain DLP light engine repairs that require an ultra-clean environment, HVT technicians use class 100 workstations.

"We are about quality and leading the electronic display repair industry," says HVT president George Hong. "With the renovated facility, we have the capacity, knowledge and resources to continue to advance our capabilities and consistently meet or exceed customer requirements."

KIC Products Revolutionizes Removal of Damaging Electrostatic Discharge Plaguing Card Readers and POS Terminals

Author: KIC Products
Dateline: Wed, 13 Dec 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “AUBURN, Maine - Dec. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- KIC Products Waffletechnology engineers in cooperation with NCR have created a product to protect Magnetic stripe readers from Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) that can cause MSR failures and system lockups. ESD issues are more common in low humidity environments when customers use the new Debit/Credit cards with holographic images.”

ESD Plagues Card Readers and POS Terminals Found in Retail, Banking, and Throughout the Credit Card Industry

AUBURN, Maine - Dec. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- KIC Products Waffletechnology engineers in cooperation with NCR have created a product to protect Magnetic stripe readers from Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) that can cause MSR failures and system lockups. ESD issues are more common in low humidity environments when customers use the new Debit/Credit cards with holographic images. A two step process was developed to clean the readers then treat the magnetic heads with a solution to prevent ESD discharge. This process should be performed on all readers at least once per month.

Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) is a significant factor in the premature failure of electronic equipment. ESD has become a common cause of circuit failure with many devices now sensitive to less than 30 volts.

Visa contends an electrostatic discharge is causing problems at some credit card terminals.

According to the Visa website,
( http://usa.visa.com/about_visa/ask_visa/index.html )

Based on information and reports received, it is clear that the probable cause of these problems is Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) resulting from a combination of factors including:
    * Low humidity at the point-of-sale, causing higher-than-normal electrostatic voltages

    * Point-of-sale equipment with a relatively low tolerance for ESD, usually at the magnetic read heads

    * Use of payment cards with holographic magnetic stripes, which have higher electrostatic conductivity than conventional magnetic stripes.

We also know that we have a special product when orders start to come in from neighbors of people who have purchased our HearPods."

The vast majority of people with a hearing loss do not realize how much this loss affects them. However, family members may observe gradual personality changes and, typically, will suggest that they get help.

"So, what are the consequences of prolonging help," Wohlers asks? "First, is the issue of understanding speech. In simple terms, if you do not use it, you loss it. The brain's auditory cortex is not being stimulated with sound and the brain stops processing the sound into meaningful words which is referred to as 'lack of discrimination.' Many people say 'I can hear you, but I cannot understand what you are saying,'" Wohlers explained.

Most people have lost a significant amount of word understanding before they get a hearing aid and this leads to many problems. Most people believe that a hearing aid will solve the problem, when in reality, the sound can be restored, but the speech discrimination lost is often irreversible.

"Early detection and correction allows people to stay in the game in a world where communication is everything," Wohlers said.

Anyone who thinks they may have hearing loss should see their doctor, get a hearing test, and visit: www.myhearpod.com.

Nanotechnology Innovation Solves Printed Circuit Board Failure Caused by RoHS Lead-Free Standards/CAF

Author: Interface Sciences Corporation
Dateline: Tue, 20 Sep 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - September 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Interface Sciences Corporation today announced the launch of its RoHS-compliant, cost-effective solution to printed circuit board failure. Interface Sciences Corporation is an early-stage nanotechnology commercialization company holding platform technologies that were developed by a major government laboratory.”



A R T I C L E:

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - September 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Interface Sciences Corporation (www.interfacesciences.com) today announced the launch of its RoHS-compliant, cost-effective solution to printed circuit board failure.

Because of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) mandate, printed circuit board manufacturers must stop using lead solder by July 2006. Use of lead-free solders leads to catastrophic board failures caused by related conductive anodic filamentation (CAF) problems.

Printed circuit boards are used with memory, motherboard, graphics cards and many other types of devices. RoHS mandates transition to lead-free solders, which will affect most electronic devices including all IT and telecom equipment and all consumer electronics.

Continued use of conventional materials will cause reliability of medium- and high-performance electronic products to drop to unacceptable levels. Interface Sciences' proprietary application solves circuit board failure. CEO Mitch Hawkins said, "Our patented Self-Assembled Monolayer (SAM) nanotechnology provides a far-reaching and cost-effective solution to the $3 billion medium- and high-performance board market segment."

Existing "good" lead-free solutions may increase production costs by as much as 200 percent.

Dr. Damon Brink, ISC's chief science and technology officer said, "Interface Science's solution leads to a stronger, more reliable product at a fraction of the cost, while enabling low-cost resin and material systems to be used in high-performance boards assembled with lead-free solder."

The Company's proprietary technology uses dense molecular arrangement on the nanoscale in addition to the use of unconventional molecules.

Interface Sciences Corporation is an early-stage nanotechnology commercialization company holding platform technologies that were developed by a major government laboratory. The company's emphasis is on materials and surface innovation at the nanoscale. It controls several hundred technological applications in fields as varied as oil spill remediation, fiber composites and composite structures, computer circuit boards, MEMS, sports equipment, nanoparticle functionalization and paper treatments.

SO. SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - August 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- IO2 Technology today announced on August 16, 2005 the release of its Heliodisplay(TM) projector, which projects video onto thin air. IO2 Technology creates and commercializes next-generation display technologies, and the Heliodisplay(TM), is the first such device released by the company. This revolutionary technology displays any video source in full, high-resolution color in free space, without need for a screen. After a year of development, the eagerly anticipated Heliodisplays went on the market today.

Consumer reaction to the units has been extremely enthusiastic. Viewers can walk around, or even through, the floating image, something possible only in science fiction until now. "IO2 Technology is opening a new frontier in video display technology," said Philip Liang, a researcher at the MIT Media Lab who bought two units immediately after previewing the Heliodisplay(TM).

Heliodisplays are available in projecting image sizes from 22 to 42 inches (diagonal), and is available with interactive features. IO2 Technology's website (www.io2technology.com), which has Heliodisplay(TM) units available for direct purchase, demonstrates how a user can move the image of a watch in mid-air with their finger. Instead of a mouse, a viewer uses their hand (no special glove needed) to move an image, or a finger to move the cursor. The Heliodisplay(TM) can be used for advertising, tradeshow displays, consumer-market applications such as movies and videogames, or any other use that employs a video display.

"This is only the beginning of what can be done with this technology," Liang observed. Chad Dyner, CEO of IO2, said, "Based on the initial reaction and feedback we've received, the consumer and commercial applications for Heliodisplay(TM) are endless. "We've combined the unique display technology with innovative design and production to forge new possibilities for advertising and marketing as well as defense applications," Dyner continued. Dyner declined to comment on future releases, but said that a strong product pipeline is in development. According to technology industry sources, IO2's development units have larger and clearer images, leaving industry insiders and observers alike to wonder what will be next from IO2.
