Multiplied Media’s Poynt Local Search application wins in the 2009 Mobile Star Awards
Calgary – Multiplied Media Corporation, a provider of mobile local search services, is pleased to announce that its Poynt Local Search application has been named as a winner in the eighth annual Mobile Star Awards™ program, hosted by mobile technology news portal MobileVillage.com. Multiplied Media was recognized in the Navigation or Location Based Services Award in the category for Consumer Applications.
As in past years, the Mobile Star Awards program showcases “best of” entries in dozens of categories covering mobile apps, enterprise mobile software, wireless network products, enterprise success stories, mobile industry visionaries and more. Winners were chosen by subscribers of MobileVillage’s “Go Mobile™” – a free e-newsletter that delivers headlines and links from top mobile technology stories on popular websites such as Cnet, Engadget, Gizmodo, PC Magazine, Computerworld and AppScout. “Go Mobile” was launched nearly ten years ago and is now published every three weeks for thousands of readers.
“Poynt was selected by our ‘Go Mobile’ readers as the go-to application on the BlackBerry for location based and navigation services,” said Jon Covington, MobileVillage founder and president. “Real users selected the Poynt app based on real results, not hype. I look forward to watching Poynt evolve onto other platforms in the future, giving more users the opportunity to utilize the great application.”
“We could not be more pleased to have been named a ‘Superstar’ in our category,” said Andrew Osis, CEO, Multiplied Media. “To be recognized as a top consumer application by the MobileVillage is a great honour. The Mobile Star awards brought some stiff competition to the table this year. We would like to thank our development team, Poynt’s loyal users and of course MobileVillage for hosting the awards.”
In addition to MobileVillage, the Sponsors for the 2009 Mobile Star Awards were Clickatell, Funambol, MobileFrame, Nadel Phelan, OnPoint Digital and Syclo.
Ottawa – Epiphan Systems has announced that the new Lecture Recorder presentation recording, archiving, and broadcasting product is now shipping. Featuring integrated audio-in, video-in, as well as DVI/VGA inputs and outputs, Lecture Recorder lets users simultaneously record the audio and video streams of a lecture, presentation, or seminar. And, as it is designed primarily for corporate and educational clients, it’s easy to use and requires no prior knowledge.
Retailing at $2000, the Lecture Recorder also features 32GB of solid state memory and has 5 USB ports for connecting external devices, such as CD/DVD writers, external hard drives, and AMX/Crestron interface units. Being a bit larger than a paperback book, Epiphan Systems’ Lecture Recorder fits easily inside presenters’ podiums or other confined spaces.
Similar to Epiphan Systems’ VGA Recorder Lite, Lecture Recorder has the ability to not only store hours of lectures on board the actual device; it is also able to automatically send the recordings to a central repository server or FTP, or act as a stand-alone server relaying the recordings directly to an online audience.
Unlike similar solutions from other providers, the Lecture Recorder does not require the payment of any maintenance or licensing fees, integrates within an existing LAN network, and works with virtually any external server, making it the ideal recording device to use in lecture or conference environments.
