Posted by News Room On 0 comments
Antec Inc. announced the availability of yet another GX gaming series cabinet; the GX900. The Antec GX series has been a well received performer and the GX900 is nothing short of a spectacular product for the gaming arena.

Fast paced growth in computer literacy and greater use of data on mobiles will help India’s Internet economy grow to $200 billion or 5 percent of the GDP by 2020, Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Wednesday.
 
Accepting that India’s broadband penetration is low, the minister said the government is addressing the issue in a “time-bound manner”, partly through the National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN) project.
 
“For the Internet Economy to touch $200 billion (roughly Rs. 12,41,100 crores) by 2020 that will contribute 5 percent of gross domestic product, we need to move at a fast pace towards computer literacy. The other key areas which will help the Internet economy to grow is Mobile Internet,” Prasad said at India Digital Summit in New Delhi.
 
“I accept that India’s broadband penetration is low but we are working on NOFN project to resolve this in a time-bound manner. Around 10 lakh kilometres of fibre has been laid in the country during the last 25 years, and under NOFN we have plans to lay 7 lakh kilometres of fibre in about 3 years plus time,” he said.
He termed the Digital India Programme launched by the NDA government as a game changer and said broadband is going to play a key role in it.
Prasad released the India@Digital.Bharat report which has suggested measures to government to facilitate over three times growth of Internet economy from about $60 billion (roughly Rs. 3,72,330 crores) at present to $200 billion by 2018.Internet based businesses and ecosystem around it can reach $200 billion by 2020, contributing to about 5 percent of GDP, said the report by the Internet and Mobile Association of India and Boston Consulting Group.Growth in the Internet economy will create nearly 15-20 lakh job opportunities by 2018 compared to 4-5 lakh employed by it at present, the report estimated.According to it, Internet users in India will jump from 190 million as of June 2014 to over 550 million, while the number in rural areas will touch 210 million by 2018.Google India Managing Director and IAMAI Chairman Rajan Anandan said: “India is the 3rd country in the world to have over 5 Internet companies valued at over $1 billion (roughly Rs. 6,200 crores). India is the fastest growing Internet country but we need to move from narrow band to broadband at the earliest.”Prasad had recently told Parliament that the NOFN project, which aims to connect 2.5 lakh village panchayats with 100 megabit per second download speed, will be completed by December 2016.For achieving big growth in Internet economy, the IMAI-BCG report has suggested various measures to government including affordable access through ubiquitous network reach and affordable data enabled devices and Internet plans, facilitating digital transactions and developing a regulatory framework to facilitate content development.It has suggested reviewing of IT Act, the Copyright Act and the online distance education regulations.

The launch of ‘Softjet Grand’ and ‘Vastrajet’ printers signals the start of the company’s move to distribute its products across the GCC and Eastern Europe region with the strategic aim of consolidating its customer base and strengthening its partner networks to promote its diverse product portfolio. Colorjet stand is located at Sheikh Saeed Hall 1, stand no D-06.
According to Colorjet senior executive, the company currently operates across three key regions, which are composed of India, China and Dubai. Looking to improve its market presence in the region, the company has expressed confidence in achieving 20 per cent growth in the coming year. Colorjet products are aligned towards two key segments—signage products and textile products. With this in mind, the company is releasing the ‘Softjet Grand” model to a target audience in the Soft signage segment, particularly to producers of Soft signage’s like flags and banners which are directly printed on polyester based recyclable fabrics. The new unit uses environmentally friendly ink that is aqueous based.
Meanwhile, the ‘Vastrajet’ is being promoted across the digital textile printing segment as the new unit can be used both for sampling and mass production of digital printed textile orders. Looking to play a key role in the country’s water conservation efforts, the ‘Vastrajet’ printer has been designed in such a way that it doesn’t use water like traditional machines
“Consumers have now become more aware of the effects that everyday chemicals have on the environment and their own health. This new found consumer wisdom has led to the demand of more sustainable and eco-friendly solutions,” said Pavan Gupta, Director, Colorjet. “Advertising and promotions are required for the growth of any business but the constant use of such hazardous material can lead to an unhealthy environment and therefore internationally soft signage is now becoming widely popular.”
Colorjet is the only manufacturer that offers and sells machines as a solution, along with RIP color management, ink usage, ICC profile and training for application development or various applications that a machine can be used for across different markets. True to its vision towards continued growth and development, the company constantly updates its product roadmap in an effort to directly connect with its end users while also valuing feedback given by its service engineers and sales team. Colorjet also has a highly trained technical team for after sales requirements.
“We are looking forward to a very positive response to our participation at SGI Dubai, we believe the event will offer us a strategic platform to promote our printers, especially newer units like ‘Softjet Grand’ and ‘Vastrajet’. Our presence at this event will also allow us the advantage of developing new contacts, meeting potential partners and finding out key feedback from our end users,” concluded Gupta.
