1  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Print still king for so-called digital natives on: March 27, 2015, 06:47:09 AM
New York, 27th March 2015 - Millennials are far more likely to read printed books than ebooks, according to new research by Publishing Technology.

The survey, which polled 2,000 consumers across the U.S. and U.K., aged between 18 and 34, found that in the last year, nearly twice as many respondents had read a print book (71 per cent), than an ebook on any device – the closest being a tablet (37 per cent). Showing no strong allegiance, young consumers also reported reading ebooks on dedicated ereaders (29 per cent), mobile phones (27 per cent) and personal computers (25 per cent).

The personal touch is still of vital importance for millennials who would rather acquire printed books from chain book shops (47 per cent) as opposed to online retailers (39 per cent). When purchasing ebooks, 51 per cent of millennials would favour an ereading app with 40 per cent acquiring ebooks directly from their ereading devices and 19 per cent using subscription services.

When it comes to discovering and sharing books, although online communities and social media play an important role in millennials’ lives, the research shows how essential offline communication is for this young demographic. Millennials mostly discover print and ebooks by word of mouth referrals (36 per cent), online browsing (26 per cent), and social media (24 per cent), while 23 per cent of those polled reported finding books browsing in brick-and-mortar book shops.

Millennial readers are not a generation of sharers. But they do recommend books and share opinions with their peers via word of mouth (40 per cent), social media (26 per cent), and online communities (16 per cent). This group could be persuaded to read more on electronic devices by price promotions (45 per cent), more ebook/print book bundling (26 per cent) and shorter content forms (10 per cent) or pay-per-chapter ebooks (9 per cent).

Michael Cairns, Publishing Technology CEO, said: “We undertook this research to better understand the reading habits and test our assumptions about a generation of young people born and raised in the digital era. We were quite surprised to discover that 18-34 year-olds are not as ‘online-only’ as we, in the publishing industry, often assume.”

He continued: “This rising cohort of book-buyers relies on peers for suggestions of what to read, often prefers cheaper, smaller bites that can be shared freely, and revels in the luxury of being able to read whenever and wherever it likes - regardless of format or platform. To engage with these readers now and cultivate them for tomorrow, publishers need to target multiple channels for their content and integrate with this generation’s social lives, both on and offline. And the physical book world and print-based publishing still plays a very active role in this.”

The survey How Millennials Consume Content was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Publishing Technology. The full results can be accessed at www.publishingtechnology.com/research

4  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Egmont Publishing unveils new contract and rights management system on Publishin on: March 10, 2015, 10:34:06 AM
Oxford, UK, 10th March 2015 – Egmont Publishing, a leading global children’s book, magazine and digital publisher, has launched a new global contracts and rights system running on Publishing Technology’s advance platform.

The system, which went live late last year at the publisher’s UK and Denmark-based Scandinavian offices, will enable the company to benefit from a single, centralised resource containing all of its global contract and rights information. Following the successful implementation, Egmont expects to roll advance out to further Egmont Publishing territories in the near future.

Designed to help track and manage the status of contracts at every stage of their lifecycle, from offer through to signature, advance will improve and simplify the way Egmont Publishing manages rights, sub-rights, fragments and permissions, while strengthening its existing processes.

Egmont Publishing’s business also benefits from:
• Enhanced visibility of the status of contracts throughout the business
• Complete visibility across the business of the commercial opportunities and liabilities relating to contracts and rights
• The ability to generate reports, data, legal templates relating to contracts
• The capacity to log background information relating to contracts, such as correspondence, royalty reports, marketing activity and other items

Henrik Højsholt Nielsen, CFO Egmont Publishing, commented: “Contracts and rights form an integral part of our business processes as a publisher. With that in mind it is fundamental that we have the appropriate systems in place that can empower our employees and stakeholders to effectively manage a diverse range of contract types across multiple content and product formats. Since signing the initial contract we have been working closely with Publishing Technology to migrate all of our historical and current contract data across to the system and have made very good progress. We look forward to continuing this relationship and potentially rolling out the platform globally so that Egmont Publishing employees all over the world can benefit.”

Jane Tappuni, EVP, Business Development, said: “One of the biggest challenges that large international publishers face is ensuring that employees, regardless of where they are in the world, can be fully informed regarding intellectual property rights and contract obligations that need to be executed. This is one of the main strengths of advance Contract, Rights and Royalties, which can pull contract and rights information from local markets and make it available internationally. We are delighted that the first phase implementation of this project has been a success and are confident that we will be launching advance across additional further Egmont Publishing territories in the near future.”

6  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Android users can create Hidden Spaces on: March 02, 2015, 04:45:27 AM
Barcelona, 2nd March 2015 –  Graphite Software, the company behind Secure Spaces for Android, has today announced version 3.0, providing users to store private apps, messages and accounts with the new Hidden Space feature. In addition, Secure Spaces 3.0 adds support for Android Lollipop, a range of integration options and many other important enhancements.

Not all information is meant to be shared or made public. The Hidden Space provides a secret, secure “device within a device” for the most important apps and data. A Hidden Space is for the device owner’s eyes only, and will only become visible when accessed from a special app in the Owner Space. API support enables developers to create their own access method, such as using gestures or integration with the launcher. Every Secure Spaces device includes the Hidden Space, whether used or not.

“The Hidden Space usage remains undetectable to anyone else using, or with access to, the device,” said Alec Main, CEO of Graphite Software. “Many countries allow warrantless search of smartphones and tablets, so people need strong encryption technology to protect their privacy.”

Secure Spaces 3.0 also delivers support for Android 5.0 and takes advantage of many of the new operating system enhancements. Secure Spaces 3.0 enables multiple integration options, including a “lite” integration version of Secure Spaces that provides many of the same Space management features while accelerating time to market.

Alec continues: “This update follows the launch of our Secure Spaces Cloud Management Service, providing users of Secure Spaces with even more options to enhance their mobile user experience with opt-in services from a variety of sources and to benefit from multiple separate spaces.”

Graphite Software's Secure Spaces for Android gives users choice in their mobile experience. Users can use any app and service they want without having to lose control of their personal information. For more information on Graphite Software, please visit http://www.graphitesoftware.com.

About Graphite Software’s Secure Spaces:
Secure Spaces for Android gives users choice of their mobile experience, enabling customization and new apps without losing control of their personal information. Supporting both user-defined and downloadable "Spaces" the potential use cases are limited only by the imagination of the device owner or a curator in the cloud. By enabling multiple Spaces on a single device Graphite Software has redefined the mobile user experience.

7  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Across Systems Publishes White Paper on the Principle of Translation Management on: February 26, 2015, 05:49:59 AM
Karlsbad, Germany, 26th February 2015 – Computer-aided translations with the help of translation memory technology deliver numerous advantages. Nevertheless, many enterprises have not yet or only partially come in touch with such systems. For this reason, they are often still unaware of the functions and actual savings potential. In a white paper, Across Systems, manufacturer of the Across Language Server, explains the basic modes of operation and central modules of translation management systems (TMS).

To begin with, the white paper shows the difference between machine translation and translation with the help of a TMS, as the two systems are often confused. For a machine translation system to work, it must first be filled with data for predefined language pairs. Subsequently, the actual translation takes place automatically, i.e. without any human interaction. The result can be post-edited by a reviewer or translator. However, the changes are not entered in the system directly, but are only entered after some time, if at all. By contrast, a translation system with translation memory technology can be used immediately for any language combination and supports human translators in their work. The data repository grows with every translation that is prepared with the help of the system. Accordingly, the learning effect of the system takes place at the same time as the translation. In the ideal case, the translator thus benefits from a previous translation right away when he starts with the next sentence.

Moreover, the white paper explains the typical components and functions of common translation management systems, such as the translation memory, the terminology database, project management, and quality assurance modules as well as their interaction in the overall translation process.

The white paper of Across Systems is designed to provide enterprises that have just started to examine the subject of computer-aided translation with easy-to-understand basic information. Anyone interested can download it free of charge from the software manufacturer's website.

8  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / AsiaInfo gives operators the key to seamless CRM on: February 26, 2015, 04:40:13 AM
Beijing and London, 26th February 2015 – AsiaInfo, China’s largest telecoms software and services company, today announced a revolutionary upgrade to its award-winning Veris™ BSS product suite which can help transform and streamline customer services and support for Communication Service Providers (CSPs).

Version 7 of Veris CRM, the latest release within AsiaInfo’s Veris product suite, is an enhanced Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool that will, for the first time, deliver a true ‘omni-channel’ architecture for telecoms, helping CSPs provide fully integrated seamless customer support across multiple channels and different enquiry points.

With Veris CRM, operators can now deliver consistent, accurate service to customers whether they enquire in-store, online, over the phone, via email, social media or an operator-branded self-help app. For the customer, Veris CRM enables true ‘omni-channel’ capability. The purchasing channels become transparent, so a transaction could begin online and be completed in-store as a continuous process.

Independent research, carried out by respected telecommunications industry specialists Northstream Consulting, has highlighted potential operating expenditure savings of between two and five percent annually for the mobile operator community from the adoption of this omni-channel approach.

Announcing the new integrated solution, Dr Andy Tiller, VP product marketing for AsiaInfo, said: “Business and personal consumers today interact with their service provider companies in many ways – phone calls and emails are being replaced by Twitter, Facebook, and self-care tools in operator apps. Too often though, these different channels for customer service are not joined up at all – the systems do not link a Twitter username to a customer name for example. As a result, one customer might have multiple, unconnected profiles on the system.

“The flexibility of the Veris suite enables operators to add new channels with the confidence that the existing customer data and business process logic will be seamlessly adopted.”

Veris CRM collates and integrates customer information to ensure that an up-to-date single consolidated view of the customer is always available to all channels. This means that a customer raising a query or placing an order online would also simply be able to visit an operator’s retail store to ask for an update or to change or collect their order, with all their details readily available through all access points.

“Veris CRM helps operators to make the connections and deliver proper, joined-up integrated customer service,” said Dr Tiller. “It allows an operator to build a single view of a customer, recognize their services and requirements, and to track customer interactions whenever, wherever and however they connect.”

9  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / CCS ramps up with first volume production of award-winning small cell microwave on: February 25, 2015, 07:32:52 AM
Cambridge, UK, 25th February 2015 – CCS (Cambridge Communication Systems), creator of the world’s first self-organising small cell microwave backhaul system for mobile networks, today announces that it has taken delivery of the first volume production of its award-winning backhaul solution from market-leading manufacturer MTI (Microelectronic Technology Inc.).

Established in 1983, MTI was the first company to specialise in the design and manufacture of RF and microwave communication products in Taiwan and has built a market-leading position in this area. MTI is headquartered in the Hsinchu Science Park, also known as the “Silicon Valley of Taiwan”, with additional manufacturing facilities located in China and R&D centers in California, US and Hilleroed, Denmark.

MTI manufactured the self-organising nodes at its facility in Wuxi, in the Jiangsu province of China. CCS nodes are small, robust and purposely designed for quick, discreet and easy installation on street furniture – in less than 15 minutes, without the need for radio planning or manual alignment. Each unit has a wide 270-degree field of view and only one unit is required per lamppost. With connection support for up to 16 other nodes in a unique multipoint-to-multipoint topology, CCS’ backhaul nodes provide increased resiliency and redundancy.

Commenting on the volume shipment, CEO and Co-Founder Steve Greaves said: “As a rapidly growing and innovative company, we’ve racked up many “firsts”, but taking delivery of our first volume production marks a very significant milestone for CCS as a commercial organisation. We are honoured to be partnering with acknowledged industry leaders MTI as we scale up implementation of our backhaul solution to our customers across the world.”

Mr. Allen Yen, President and CEO of MTI added: “MTI has a unmatched record of competence in RF and microwave product manufacture, and we were quick to recognise the major opportunity presented by the emerging small cells market. CCS is a young, dynamic company with a unique product set, and we are excited to be working together to help CCS meet expanding demand for its solution.”

11  THE TECHNO CLUB [ TECHNOWORLDINC.COM ] / Techno News / Nabto offers its “Internet of Things” Communication Platform on Cortus-based Sys on: February 25, 2015, 05:56:37 AM
Nürnberg, Germany, 25th February 2015 – Cortus, a technology leader in low-power, silicon-efficient, 32-bit processor IP, and Nabto, a Peer-to-Peer (p2p) software company, announce the availability of the uNabto communication platform on Cortus’ APS processor cores today. uNabto is a low-bandwidth Web server protocol that runs on any Cortus APS core and employs an innovative approach to bypassing firewalls and providing GUI-based Internet access to a wide range of embedded applications—using only 16 KB of Flash and less than 1 kB of RAM. uNabto running on Cortus APS cores with the Cortus Ethernet 10/100 MAC enables “Skype-like” connectivity from systems-on-chip (SoC) to browsers on mobile phones, PCs and to big data systems.

“Creating remote user access to the ‘Internet of Things’ has never been easier,” said Carsten Rhod Gregersen, CEO at Nabto. “By combining Cortus’ processor cores and Ethernet MAC with the uNabto Web server software, a simple, autonomous and highly scalable end-user experience is achieved. The Nabto platform enables the transmission and rendering of both local and remote data directly from a Cortus-based SoC to a browser on any PC or smart phone, speeding time-to-market without the complexity and cost of a high-end network solution.”

The resource-constrained nature of embedded devices was not designed for Web browsing. Using traditional Web technology, it is costly and difficult to reach an embedded SoC device located behind a firewall; not to mention serving and transmitting large graphics files while rendering HTML to a browser. Nabto enables lightweight remote access through its patent-pending fusion of HTTP and VoIP technologies. The end result is that the complexity of serving large-footprint data is moved from the SoC processor core to the remote user’s Nabto browser plug-in. This Cortus-based Nabto solution brings SoCs for “Internet of Things” one step closer, as the value gained from remote Web access now matches the cost to implement it.

“Developers of SoCs with embedded processors are looking for lightweight, silicon-efficient design solutions,” said Mr. Michael Chapman, CEO and President of Cortus, “Nabto’s lightweight p2p software with a small firmware footprint perfectly complements Cortus minimalist processor cores.” He adds, “Cortus APS cores, with low power and good code density are an excellent choice for SoCs requiring P2M or M2M connectivity with Nabto.”

Cortus licenses a range of low power, silicon efficient, 32-bit processor cores supporting a range computational performance and supporting different system complexity. The cores start from entry-level 32-bit cores suitable for upgrading 8-bit cores to cores supporting caches, co-processors and symmetric multiprocessing systems. They share the simple vectored interrupt structure, which ensures rapid, real time interrupt response, with low software overhead.

All APS processor cores interface to Cortus’ peripherals including Ethernet 10/100 MAC, USB 2.0 Device and USB 2.0 OTG via the efficient APS bus. The Ethernet MAC allows the chosen physical interface to be connected using either the Medium Independent Interface (MII) or Reduced Medium Independent Interface (RMII). Flexible memory interfaces with two independent DMA channels enable system design to ensure low CPU overhead reception and transmission without any danger of frames being lost. Address filtering enables a single interface to respond to multiple MAC addresses.

About Nabto:
Nabto (http://nabto.com) was founded in 2007 in Aarhus, Denmark by Carsten Rhod Gregersen, who saw an opportunity to connect all digital devices on the Internet in a new and simple way. He implemented this vision, and led Nabto to win the Scandinavian Industry Expo’s Invention Contest 2009 while ranking second out of 700 innovative companies in the IBM SmartCamp competition 2010. Nabto is distributed in Asia through AICP (Japan) http://www.aicp.co.jp/, by RAK (China) http://rakwireless.com and by Blazee International (China and Taiwan) http://www.blazee.com.
