AOC has recently announced a brand new 27-inch monitor aimed at those of you who are looking for a decent all-around product that can meet your multimedia and gaming needs.

The 178°/178° viewing angles are also a big plus, not to mention the 10-bit color (1.07 billion colors) support, the dynamic mega-contrast, and the 350 cd/m² maximum brightness levels.




When it comes to display ports, this product features dual-link DVI, HDMI (probably HDMI 1.4a), D-Sub and DisplayPort 1.2. The integrated stereo speakers have a power output of 2W, which should be enough for casual multimedia sessions. The 4-port USB 3.0 hub also deserves a mention, of course, as it adds a plus of convenience and practicality. Weighing in at 6.6 kg or 14.5 pounds, this monitor measures 533.4 mm x 242.9 mm x 640 mm, and it is accompanied by a stand that supports regular tilt adjustments. Other highlights include Plug and Play, i-Menu, e-Saver, Vesa Wallmount and sustainability certificates such as Energy Star 6.0, TCO 6.0 and EPEAT.

Mobile Commerce- Key Trend For 2016 & The Future Of Mobile Commerce

Posted by News Room On Wednesday, March 2, 2016 0 comments

With the steady rise in mobile technology in recent years, many businesses have made Mobile commerce, or M-commerce, a top priority. Whether it’s using a tablet in a brick-and-mortar store, or enabling sales through a mobile website, businesses across a wide range of industries are seeking solutions to help them adapt to a mobile-obsessed world. With the steady rise in mobile technology, here is expected m-commerce trends in 2016.Sure enough, ‘Mobile commerce will be nearly half of E-commerce by 2018’ revealed a headline in a leading magazine recently. These are phenomenal numbers; so in order to gain an in depth insight into the global reach and influence of M-commerce, we must analyse a report by the investment bank, The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. The study estimates that M-commerce sales will reach a staggering $626 billion in 2018. It is therefore amply evident that M-commerce growth is fast outgrowing that of E-commerce in a ratio of 3:1.This indicates that web sales only on smartphones and tablets in 2018 will nearly equal web sales on almost all conceivable computing machines from just half-a-decade earlier. The number of smartphone and/or tablet users making purchases on their mobile devices will increase significantly in the years ahead. A whopping 686 million consumers around the globe will make a purchase on their mobile devices in 2015. This figure is set to increase 21% to 830 million in 2016 and subsequently rise 16% to 961 million in 2017, and peak 13% to 1.09 billion in 2018, according to The Goldman Sachs Group.Gartner Inc., found in a recent survey that mobile commerce currently generates 22% of digital commerce revenue. The American information technology research and advisory firm predicts that by 2016, 89% of companies will realize that reaching out to their customers through a multi-channel approach will be mandatory, and hence peg customer experience as their primary basis for competition.Industry experts state that the reality is that focusing innovation on new products—and even new business models—is subject to shrinking periods of competitive advantage. This is because competitors and alternatives abound. To meet this challenge, nearly three-quarters of companies expect to increase technology spending on customer experience in 2015.Marketers with digital and mobile commerce initiatives need to focus on encouraging the development of cross-functional teams — including IT, sales, customer support and legal — to create seamless path-to-purchase experiences, and post-purchase relationships with consumers who are increasingly using mobile devices to research and purchase products and services. Mobile marketing teams should investigate how to leverage mobile wallets, with the expected reinvigoration of consumer interest in mobile commerce and payments.
In fact, Gartner reveals that by 2017, U.S. customers’ mobile engagement behaviour will drive mobile commerce revenue to 50% of U.S. digital commerce revenue. Mobile commerce will account for 24.4% of overall ecommerce revenues by the end of 2017.Some sectors will migrate more quickly than others to accepting mobile payments and promoting mobile commerce. For example, big-box retailers may not need to move as quickly as other industries because the in-store experience is still a critical part of their value proposition and the customer experience, making digital and mobile commerce a smaller portion of their overall revenue. Customer experience management will naturally be at the forefront of all these initiatives.However, new credit card standards will cause a shift in liability for fraudulent transactions in 2015, requiring retailers to update their point-of-sale systems for safer credit card transactions in 2016.

    Kingston Details Plans For IronKey’s Future

    Posted by News Room On 0 comments

    Kingston, the independent world leader in memory products, today announced that it has finalized theintegration plans for IronKey™. As a leader in the USB Flash drive market since 2004, Kingston® will utilize its IronKey product line to deliver FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification solutions for customers who need the highest level of encryption and security. Kingston will ensure a smooth transition for existing IronKey customers and will work with its collective partners to enable access to sales and technical support, plus access to Kingston’s world-class product and service resources.The “Kingston IronKey” will be the company’s top of the line as well as the industry’s most secure USB Flash drive featuring FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification. FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certification is a requirement for civilian and government agencies as well as military branches in the United States and Canada. The certification is also often a requirement or guideline for financial and healthcare industry organizations. FIPS 140-2 Level 3 calls for a tamper-evident seal for physical security to detect and respond to attempts to access, use or modify the cryptographic module. Achievement of this certification required rigorous testing, which was reviewed and approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). It is a benchmark for security and reliability for agencies and enterprise organizations looking for the highest level of encryption.Kingston will maintain its encrypted DataTraveler products, the world’s most-used encrypted USB drives, for customers who do not require FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation. In addition, its close software partner DataLocker® Inc. will continue to manage the SafeConsole® and Enterprise Management Services (EMS) platforms that both Kingston and IronKey managed encrypted drives utilize.“The encrypted USB market continues to be viable as there is always the need for governmental agencies and organizations of all levels to protect mobile data,” said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. “Many IronKey products today support legacy NAND technology. Kingston will leverage our longstanding relationships with Flash memory semiconductors, controller partners and other component makers as well as our strong channel presence to bring IronKey products into the future and to new customers.”The recent purchase of IronKey’s technology and assets allow Kingston to focus on its core strength of encrypted USB drives. As part of the acquisition, Kingston has sold the encrypted external HDD business to DataLocker, whose product portfolio already includes similar solutions. The deal further strengthens the partnership between the two companies.
