ADATA Technology organized ‘Power Users Meet’ at Mumbai

Posted by News Room On Monday, December 29, 2014 0 comments
ADATA Technology organized ‘Power Users Meet’ at Mumbai along with other Premium Brands. This was a big day for India’s hardcore PC enthusiasts and power users who had gathered in Mumbai, as they witnessed a new Indian record being made in CPU-Z Overclocking (OC), by none other than HiCookie, holder and breaker of multiple OC world records.
OC is the practice of pushing a PC component to function faster than the manufactured clock frequency. This calls for a lot of practice, upgraded skills, dedication, and of course, a deep passion for the activity.
HiCookie demonstrating his fabled OC skills was the highlight of the PC enthusiasts’ meet, organized jointly by GIGABYTE Technology (India) Pvt. Ltd. (Motherboard Business Unit), CoolerMaster India, and ADATA India – all Taiwan-based companies and world leaders in their respective spheres of PC hardware.
Egged on by the Power Users present, HiCookie managed to achieve a CPU-Z benchmark of 6.37 GHz for processor and 3100GHz for a 2400GHz DDR4 DRAM, a new Indian record in both the categories. The record was made by HiCookie, using the GIGABYTE GA-X99-SOC Force motherboard with an Intel® Core™ i7-5960X Processor Extreme Edition, with liquid nitrogen (LN2) for cooling. The other crucial components included ADATA XPG Z1 DDR4-2400 16GB RAM Kit, ADATA XPG SX910 512GB SSD, and Cooler Master V1200 Platinum PSU.
GA-X99-SOC Force, based on the Intel X99 Express chipset, is a part of the GIGABYTE X99 Overclocking series motherboards. Though it is specially designed for Overclocking, it retains all the vital features of any GIGABYTE X99 motherboard, such as SATA Express, 4 way CrossfireX/SLI, m2 sata and AMP-UP audio, along with a wide range of other mainstream attributes.
Commenting on the Overclocking session, Suvojit Banerjee, who had come all the way from Kolkata to be a part of the event, said, “Overclocking is my passion and I consistently try to improve myself by practicing and enhancing my knowledge. Watching HiCookie in action was like finding a treasure trove full of tricks and tips to improve my OC skills.”
Endorsing Banerjee’s views Sushant Patil, another attendee, said, “There’s no doubt that watching HiCookie was an enlightening experience. But this meet also gave us PC enthusiasts an excellent platform to interact directly with three of the world’s leading PC component brands, and getting to know more about their products and technologies.”
Speaking on his experience in Overclocking in front of Indian spectators for the first time, HiCookie, who is also the Chief Overclocking Evangelist, GIGABYTE Motherboard Business Unit, said, “I was pleasantly surprised to see that Overclocking could generate so much interest in India. I am happy to get such an encouraging response from the invitees, especially on the basis of the inquisitive questions they were asking.”
The meet also witnessed product / technology updates by Ashu Mehrotra, Marketing Manager, ADATA India, Supriya Mankame, Product Manager, GIGABYTE Technology (India), who was supported by Prathamesh Patil, GIGABYTE India’s tech specialist and Sanket Naik, Country Manager, CoolerMaster India.

The SRG-300SE also incorporates an XDNR™ (eXcellent Dynamic Noise Reduction) feature that is able to decrease image noises for perfect reproduction of still and moving objects in poorly illuminated rooms.
With ability to stream Full HD (1080/60p) video as H.264, and crisp AAC digital audio over an IP network connection in addition to 3G-SDI output at the same time, the SRG-300SE is ideal for applications that necessitate the use of live streaming information to an Internet audience while being recorded to disc for editing and storing. The simultaneous output 1920 x 1080/60p video over one BNC cable through 3G-SDI can run approximately 70 minutes or more, simplifying installation and flexibility needed for live production needs. Heightened audio quality can be perfected via an attached microphone, using the on-board equalizer and audio level control for greater clarity. Undesirable signal gaps between audio and video are balanced with the auto lip-sync function, solidifying lip movements viewed in a video picture are matched with voice dialogue.
Remotely controlled through either industry-standard VISCA™ RS-422 command protocols, or through a standard IP-based computer interface, the Sony SRG-300SE is capable of remote operation via any Internet-connected computer, providing remote users full access to the A/V camera settings, and the ability to monitor the live camera feed. With its accessible web browser and user-friendly menu, control of the camera’s ptz movements are easy and users are able to store and immediately recall up to 256 pre-set camera positions from a networked PC and web browser. The PC control software delivers an automatic interface for easy remote adjustment of necessary and complicated camera settings like color adjustment and pan/tilt speed.
The SRG-300SE has a Pan Angle ± 170 degrees, a Tilt Angle +90/-20 degrees and uses a quiet direct drive motor, allowing for rapid re-framing to occur without disturbing presenter or audience members. The camera's wide 65-degree horizontal viewing angle also gives broadcasters the advantage of being able to see a larger majority of participants, irrespective of room size. Available in black or white housing (SRG-300SE/W), this HD camera is desktop or ceiling mountable (via E-flip) and is packed with features geared towards enhancing the remote user live streaming experience at a fraction of the price of other broadcasting cameras.

Neoteric & Group companies pledge support to Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan

Posted by News Room On 0 comments
Expressing solidarity with the nation-wide ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’ campaign, members from the Head Office of neoteric and its group companies conducted a drive, ‘Pledge with us to make India shine!’ early on 5th December, in and around the premises of Matulya Centre, Lower Parel . This is in keeping with the vision of contributing to a clean, healthy and flourishing India.
Over 90 team members from across different departments and teams including the CEO and Directors together came out on the streets with broomsticks and dustbins in hand, in a bid to clean up the entire neighbourhood and surroundings. They urged all the corporates in the building and the entire IT fraternity at large, to abstain from throwing any garbage/waste on the road or street but dispose it only in dustbins or suitable locations provided for the same.
This drive is in continuation to neoteric & its group companies’ ‘2nd Home’ Cleanliness Drive which was launched during this Diwali with an objective of ensuring the upkeep of cleanliness in their ‘office’- their 2nd Home. It seeks to consistently ensure clean work-stations and rides on the mantra of ‘Reduce-Reuse-Recycle’ of paper-waste, garbage-waste and technology-waste. Staying true to the belief that ‘Cleanliness begins at Home’, the organization launched the internal drive and after its successful launch, extended it to the nationwide ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’.
Leading by its own example, neoteric has ‘challenged’ its neighbouring corporate offices to clean up their spaces better than them and in turn, create a chain of challenges. This neoteric initiative was covered by Radio Mirchi 98.3 FM to encourage other corporates to participate in similar drives( please refer to the enclosed the audio-clip).
Dipti Shah, Director- HR said, “Supporting this national campaign is in line with our organization’s focus on doing responsible business and encouraging team-members to continue being responsible citizens. Our branch offices have also joined us in this effort and moving forward, we seek to continue sensitizing corporates to take on the onus of ensuring cleanliness within and outside their own office premises as well as that of their branch-offices, if any.”

NetRack-LogoNetRack, a leading solutions provider for data centers and end-to-end IT server racks, announced the launch of Safe Transfer Switch (STS) to provide greater reliability and flexibility to data centers. STS is not just cost effective and easy to use, but also offers fail-over redundancy to single or dual power supply servers and network devices.
Safe Transfer Switch eliminates the problems that come up due to power fluctuations or weak power sources. It comes with an ability to designate the power source either to the primary or secondary switch. This way it ensures uninterrupted operations and increases the overall efficiency of data centers.
Earlier enterprises were using Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) to provide temporary electric power if the utility source failed. But like every other product, it has its own limitations. It costs more than the manual model and occasionally responds to false signals. Moreover it also prohibits load balancing.
Mr Ravi Raj, Brand Head, Director Sales & Support at NetRack said, “Honestly, switching of power between primary (utility) and secondary (backup or supplemental) power sources was a big concern for enterprises. We are really glad to announce the launch of STS which has the ability to resolve the issue.”

With a wide range of capacities from 64GB to an enormous 256GB, Transcend’s UHS-I U3 memory cards are fully equipped to handle the increased capacity requirements of professional photography and filmmaking.
