FAROs kontinuierlicher Vorstoß in den 8,3 Milliarden $[1] schweren Markt für forensische Technologien zur Strafverfolgung unterstützt dessen Implementierung einer langfristigen Expansionsstrategie in entscheidende vertikale Märkte mit seiner disruptiven 3-D-Messtechnik-, Abbildungs- und Realisierungsprodukte.

„Wir glauben, dass CAD Zones führende Softwarelösung für die Strafverfolgung für FARO ein überzeugendes integriertes 3-D-Dokumentationsproduktangebot darstellen wird”, erklärte Jay Freeland, FAROS Präsident und CEO. „Diese Akquisition ist ein wichtiger Teil unseres strategischen Schwerpunkts, die wichtigsten vertikalen Märkte zu durchdringen, die FARO das größte Marktpotenzial bieten. Während die Strafverfolgung ein relativ kleiner vertikaler Markt für FARO darstellt, glauben wir, dass er eine bedeutende Möglichkeit für die richtige 3-D-Dokumentationslösung darstellt und die Akquisition von CAD Zone ist ein wichtiger Schritt, um dieses Angebot zu schaffen.

Cyber Safety Advocates SnoopWall and Miss Teen USA 2013 Partner to Protect the 2014 Miss Teen USA Contestants

Posted on 01 August 2014












NASHUA, N.H., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – SnoopWall (www.snoopwall.com), the world’s first counterveillance software company, announced the launch of a public awareness campaign at the 2014 MISS TEEN USA® Pageant (www.missteenusa.com) today. This campaign continues the partnership between SnoopWall and Miss Teen USA 2013, Cassidy Wolf.  

Wolf, who is attending the pageant preparations in Paradise Island, Bahamas, was a personal victim of cyber-exploitation. Wolf’s smartphone applications, including her Facebook and Instagram accounts were breached and despite using the latest antivirus software her computer’s webcam and microphone were hacked.  She is now a strong supporter of SnoopWall.

She is passionate about educating the 2014 MISS TEEN USA® Pageant contestants and officials about how to protect themselves from “cybersnoops” and online predators while using their smartphones and tablet computers. Her tips can be viewed at teentips.snoopwall.com

In addition to advocating the use of SnoopWall, which is a new type of essential mobile security software, Wolf also presented a specially designed, hackproof, waterproof, and spyproof case donated by SnoopWall and PrivacyCase™ (privacycase.snoopwall.com) to each of the 51 contestants at the pageant’s orientation.

Wolf said “I thought I was protected by antivirus and other security software, but, in fact, I wasn’t. SnoopWall’s privacy software now helps me stay safe. It’s free, easy to use and helps families, especially teens, become more aware of the dangers of being spied upon, like I was.”

“If a 19 year old hacker can break into Cassidy Wolf’s computer and spy on her, what do you think serious cyber crime rings are doing when you try to access your bank account from your phone?” said Gary S. Miliefsky, SnoopWall CEO.  He went on to say “with antivirus failing, with apps spying, mobile devices are very risky for ANY member of your family to take into private places (shower, bathroom, etc.) and to use for private transactions (banking, ecommerce, etc.).”

This public awareness campaign also coincides with the global release of Privacy App™ for Android platform mobile devices available starting August 5, 2014 at the BlackHat 2014 hackers’ conference in Las Vegas, NV.  SnoopWall developers plan Apple iOS and Windows releases in September 2014. To sign up for notifications about product download availability, please visit http://www.snoopwall.com.

DVIGear Launches Powerful New HDBaseT™ Extenders

Posted on 01 August 2014



















MARIETTA, Ga., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — DVIGear, a leading manufacturer of digital connectivity products, has launched its models DVI-7520 and DVI-7525, the first in a powerful new range of HDBaseT™ Extenders targeted for professional AV system installations and rental & staging applications.

Extends Multiple Signals over a Single Category Cable
DVIGear’s DVI-7520 and DVI-7525 provide simple and cost-effective solutions to extend uncompressed HDMI or DVI, embedded audio, bidirectional RS-232 and IR, and Ethernet (DVI-7525 only) using a single twisted-pair CAT-X cable.   Unlike other products, these extenders support the full range of HDBaseT features, including: 5‑play, support for 4K / 30p (UHD) resolution, bidirectional IR, POH and long range operation: 

DVI-7520: 4K / 30p up to 130 ft. (~ 40 m),  1080p up to 230 ft. (~ 70 m)
DVI-7525: 4K / 30p up to 230 ft. (~ 70 m),  1080p up to 330 ft. (~ 100 m)

Fully Compliant Power over HDBaseT (POH)
The DVI-7520 and DVI-7525 are among the first extenders on the market to offer a fully compliant implementation of “Power over HDBaseT” (POH), a key component of the HDBaseT standard.  To maintain system stability and compatibility, POH uses standardized 48 VDC power as well as a sophisticated handshake feature that prevents power exchange with incompatible devices.  Today there are many HDBaseT products on the market that utilize non-standard implementations of power over the HDBaseT link.  This problem has created numerous interoperability challenges for system integrators who are faced with HDBaseT products that do not work with each other or in some cases actually cause equipment failures.  “We felt that a fully compliant implementation of POH was the only solution to the growing problems caused by non-standard power in many HDBaseT products today,” stated Steven Barlow, President of DVIGear.  “The architects of the HDBaseT standard wisely included this feature from the beginning and yet very few companies have included this crucial functionality in their product designs.  We think this will change in the future.”

The DVI-7520 and DVI-7525 deliver a powerful combination of advanced features and sterling performance at very attractive price points, which make them a true break-through in value for professional AV system integrators.  This makes them ideally suited for a wide range of digital display applications including rental & staging events, conference and training rooms, boardrooms, auditoriums, hotels, churches and other demanding environments.  Both units are available now for immediate delivery.

About DVIGear
Founded in 1999, DVIGear (www.dvigear.com) is a leading supplier of Digital Connectivity Solutions for a wide range of professional display applications.  Located in Marietta, Georgia, DVIGear offers an extensive portfolio of high performance digital video distribution products including:  Digital Matrix Routing Switchers, Splitters, Extenders, Converters, Scalers, as well as long-length copper and optical cables.

In its 12th year, Microsoft Imagine Cup is the company’s premier technology program and competition providing opportunities for student technologists, developers and aspiring entrepreneurs from all academic backgrounds to collaborate, develop a technology application, create a business plan and gain a keen understanding of what is needed to bring a concept to market. Students can learn more about Imagine Cup by visiting http://www.imaginecup.com. A full list of competition categories is available at https://www.imaginecup.com/Custom/Index/Competitions.

Imagine Cup is focused on providing students with the opportunities, resources and experience to become the brightest young minds worldwide. In addition to skills and training that launch incredible careers, students receive unparalleled hands-on experience, guidance and mentorship from industry luminaries, opening doors to a future as an entrepreneur, innovator and technologist. Each of the first place winners in the competition’s three categories — Games, Innovation and World Citizenship — will receive a “boot camp” experience from Microsoft Ventures, Microsoft YouthSpark or PAX during which they will receive hands-on mentorship and project development support from Microsoft and industry experts.

“New technologies are being created every day and at a rapid pace — many of them by student developers, which is why we’ve invested long term in the Imagine Cup program,” Guggenheimer said. “The World Finalists who came to Seattle this year represent the best of student tech minds, and we are incredibly proud and inspired by all they have accomplished — we look forward to bringing them back to Seattle next year.”
