World’s Most Rugged Tablet is Coming to Australia

leave a comment »

MELBOURNE, Australia /PRNewswire/ — Getac Technology Corporation has unveiled the technology inside the world’s most compact and robust Android tablet, as the device hits the Australasian market. It will be distributed exclusively by Synnex Australia Pty Ltd in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).

Getac Z710 Fully Rugged Tablet
The 7-inch Getac Z710 is the only rugged tablet built with a glove-friendly touchscreen — thanks to Getac’s proprietary LumiBond™ technology. This new technology integrates Gorilla® Glass, a capacitive touch sensor and a LED panel, providing unprecedented touch sensitivity, even with gloves on.
“This unique feature will save time and boost productivity in sectors where users typically wear gloves to provide protection within hazardous working environments,” says Rowina Lee, Vice President, Getac Technology Corporation.
The LumiBond engineering also means the Z710 has a better viewing angle and sunlight readability than existing rugged tablets on the market.
Andrew Yu, Product Manager of Getac, from Synnex Australia — which will exclusively distribute the new device — says: “Getac has built the rugged tablet with the operator in mind, whether they work in utility, logistics, automotive, or other field service sectors that require communication and data capture functionality, operating in harsh environments. Those industry sectors are key part of the backbone industries to drive the ANZ economies.”
Field users will also benefit from communication and connectivity features built into the new device, including Bluetooth, WiFi, and 3G; unlike most devices which only offer data capture, the Z710 also offers voice capture. In addition, the unique navigation processor (SiRFstarIV™) provides best in class GPS accuracy.
The device includes RF pass-through, providing high-speed connectivity to the above communications functions — ideal for in-vehicle use.
“The RF pass-through provides faster and more reliable data delivery in real time, and with the corresponding in-vehicle docking station, the tablet becomes the ideal on-the-move communications solution,” Mr Yu says.
Data capture options include HW Barcode and high frequency RFID technology, while Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping is made easy with GPS, E-compass and accelerometer — providing state-of-the-art positional accuracy.
Ms Lee adds that as well as the array of data capture, communication and connectivity capabilities, the device will be the most rugged tablet of its kind; the Z710 is IP65 and MIL-STD-810G rated, and outclasses other rugged tablets by withstanding 6-foot drops and operating in temperatures from -20 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celsius. This can allow restriction-free usage on all seasons and all geographic in Australia and New Zealand.
“The Z710 has the capacity to redefine the way technology is used in the field,” Ms Lee says. “The device is engineered to enhance business performance on-the-go and in tough conditions — and we know users will be able to rely on the tablet to deliver time and again.”
Getac Z710 Fully Rugged Tablet Product Key Features:
7″ touchscreen that you can operate with gloves on
Thin, small, and light (it’s only 800g)
Android 2.3
10-hour battery life
Proprietary LumiBond™ Gorilla Glass® for ultra-sensitive touchscreen
Rugged, with IP65 Certification and MIL-STD-810G Rating

Kenshoo Enhances Product Listing Ads Management for Google Shopping

leave a comment »

New Kenshoo functionality for Product Listing Ad delivers more than 50 percent increases in return on investment
SAN FRANCISCO /PRNewswire/ — Kenshoo (http://www.Kenshoo.com), a global leader in digital marketing software, today launched new Product Listing Ads (PLA) functionality as part of Kenshoo Enterprise 4.8 and Kenshoo Local 2.8 to help marketers manage Google Shopping placements more effectively and efficiently. Kenshoo’s PLA enhancements include comprehensive management, tracking and reporting for Google Shopping as well as a custom PLA bid policy that increased return on investment more than 50 percent for some advertisers during a beta period.
“Kenshoo is on the cutting edge when it comes to search marketing technology,” said Jordan Levy, SEM manager at Gaiam, a leading producer and marketer of lifestyle media and fitness accessories. “Kenshoo keeps us ahead of the curve and its latest PLA functionality gives us even more confidence that we’re working with the best. Google Shopping will have a big impact for retailers this holiday season and we’re excited by what Kenshoo has to offer.”
Kenshoo’s patent-pending PLA offering eliminates the need for search marketers to manage tracking within data feeds. Product Listing Ads and Product Targets can be managed and tracked directly within the Kenshoo user interface. The Kenshoo algorithm clusters data based on historical performance and predicts PLA revenue per click to set bids. New Kenshoo reports such as the Fusion Report for Product Targets provide marketers with a holistic look at the performance of each PLA placement and its impact on sales conversions. Additionally, Kenshoo’s path-to-conversion reports show the interplay between PLA and other channels for optimal attribution and bidding decisions.
“The sun-setting of Google Product Search in favor of PLA-based Google Shopping platform changes the game for retailers,” said William Martin-Gill, general manager, Kenshoo Enterprise and Kenshoo Local. “The paid Google Shopping model creates new opportunities for retailers to control the way they capture demand for their products but requires a new approach and capabilities. When it comes to PLA, campaign management, bidding, and tracking all have different requirements than regular keywords and Kenshoo’s PLA capabilities, the most advanced among SEM management platforms, will help clients maximize results during the critical holiday period.”
To learn more about Kenshoo’s PLA functionality, please visit Kenshoo.com/PLA.

Centro Internacional de Cancer and MASEP Form First Infini(TM) Radiosurgery Center in Latin America

leave a comment »

The Infini™ Gamma Ray Radiosurgery System Now Available for First Time in Latin America
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. /PRNewswire/ — MASEP Infini, an innovator in global medical technology, and Centro Internacional de Cancer, located in San Salvador, El Salvador, Central America, today announced that the Center has acquired the Infini™ Gamma Ray Radiosurgery System for its Radiosurgery Center. With this acquisition, Centro Internacional de Cancer becomes the first center in Latin America to offer its patients the latest generation noninvasive treatment for brain disorders in the form of the Infini™ System that combines advanced Treatment Planning Software with patented Rotary Focusing Technology. This combination allows MASEP Infini to provide clinicians with state-of-the-art Radiosurgery Systems at reduced life cycle costs.
“This is a historic moment for El Salvador and Central America since this is the first high precision Intracranial Radiosurgery Program in the region. We evaluated different technologies, and came to the conclusion that the Infini, because of its focusing rotating capabilities, will allow the best treatment of intracranial tumors, vascular malformations, and other complex brain diseases, such as epilepsy and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease in a noninvasive way. This is a giant leap for neurosurgery in this region,” said Dr Eduardo Lovo, neurosurgeon, and Chief of Radiosurgery at the Cancer Center.
The Infini™ Gamma Ray Stereotactic Radiosurgery System received FDA 510(k) clearance in March 2011. It is a high-tech system with automatic features and unparalleled dose-sculpturing abilities. Stereotactic gamma ray radiosurgery focuses radiation on specific areas of the brain to treat tumors and malformations.
“The Infini™ system automates treatment delivery, which provides physicians with outstanding tools to offer the most accurate therapeutic interventions,” said Jose Lopez, vice president of MASEP Infini. “Physicians treating patients with brain disorders do not want to expose brain tissue to unnecessary radiation. That’s why using multipurpose radiation equipment on brain patients is not the optimal choice.”
Brain tumors affect about 190,000 Americans a year; there are over 100 different types of brain tumors. Finding the most effective treatment requires expert medical care and state-of-the-art medical equipment. Brain tumors represent a significant burden to the healthcare system and can devastate the lives of patients and their families. Gamma ray radiosurgery is a safe, effective, and non-surgical approach for the treatment of certain types of brain tumors.
“The International Cancer Center took a leadership role in Central America almost two years ago by incorporating highly advanced radiation technology for cancer treatment and initiating a complete body radiosurgical program. The addition of the Infini Gamma Ray Radiosurgery System comes as a perfect complement to our current technology, solidifying our excellence in cancer care. The system will be installed in March of 2013,” said Dr Rodrigo Brito, Director and President of the International Cancer Center.
MASEP Infini is a company specializing in innovative approaches in order to bring life-saving technologies to more patients by offering cost-effective solutions that do not compromise therapeutic safety or efficacy. MASEP Infini is based in City of Industry, California, and is focused on Stereotactic gamma ray radiosurgery.
