Eposeidon Logo

Ecooda® inks contract with Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. as the sole distributor for Ecooda fishing products in the United States and Canada.

Ecooda Hornet Spinning Reel for Surf Fishing

Hempstead, NY, USA (May 30, 2014) — Executives at Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. (Eposeidon, Inc., http://www.eposeidon.com) based on Long Island, New York, and Ecooda®, which manufactures a variety of spinning and baitcasting reels and other fishing products, have entered into an agreement recognizing Eposeidon as the sole agency representing the Ecooda® brand in the North American region of the US and Canada.

Ecooda® reels are already on Eposeidon’s warehouse shelves. Spinning reel models include the high performance surf model Hornet, the high-tech Black Hawk built with carbon fiber components, ERS Max Drag Power which comes with features usually only found in reels selling for hundreds of dollars more, and the CZS series that offers a quality reel at the economy level. Presently Eposeidon also markets Ecooda® baitcasting reels, the Sniper High Speed, and the Shadow. Other models are under consideration to be added.

Ecooda Sniper High Speed Baitcaster

“We’ve put Ecooda® reels in the consumer’s hands since the second half of last year and the products have been met with outstanding positive reviews,” says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “Given the top quality of the reel, and the price we can market it at, it was an easy decision to enter into the arrangement.”

Eposeidon marketing manager Tom Gahan added, “The Ecooda® reels are selling themselves. Each Ecooda® model has outstanding features at its respective price point. At best, the percentage of returns for warranty replacement has been microscopic; far below other comparably priced brands.”

“It is an exciting time for Ecooda®. Our growth rate has exceeded our expectations,” says Cui. “Ecooda® is yet another product that continues to bolster our sales. We look forward to a great relationship with Ecooda® and will be adding other products and lines in the third quarter of 2014.”

Ecooda® reels have enjoyed a solid reputation and wide acceptance among Australian and European anglers for the last several years.

Gahan commented on the marketability of the Ecooda® brand, “We respect that anglers are brand loyal. But we see a trend toward recreational fishing tackle consumers purchasing reels that do the job equally as well at less than half the price. Ecooda® plays a role in that shift. Brand loyalty is falling to spending sensibility.”

Eposeidon also markets a line of spinning and baitcasting reels under their own KastKing™ brand.

Toronto (ON), Canada (May 19, 2014) — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer 4.9.10, a feature update to its workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks allowing to significantly reduce the size of InDesign picture links, save processing time, accelerate output and reduce production costs.

As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually; accelerate document output; reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Online Art Gallery Now Accepts 3 Dimensional Art

Light Space & Time

The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce that they will now accept 3 dimensional art (3D Art) into their future online art competitions.

Online Art Gallery Now Accepts 3 Dimensional Art

Jupiter, FL, USA (May 16, 2014) — The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce that they will now accept 3 dimensional art (3D Art) into their future online art competitions. In the past, LST decided not to accept this type of art, as many presentations of 3D art were below their standards in quality for publishing art on their website.

3D art which will now be acceptable for entering into their online art competitions will be sculpture, collage, pottery, relief type art, kinetics, installation art, assemblage, crafts, carving, glass, jewelry, paper and related media, as long as the art which is entered is in keeping and related to the gallery’s theme. The 3D Art that the LST Gallery will accept for entry into their online exhibitions must still be presented professionally and at an acceptable high quality.

The LST Gallery receives many inquiries every month about accepting 3D Art and we hope that this policy change regarding expanding acceptable media will help the 3D artists to increase their venues to a much larger and quality audience of viewers.

We have put together a small post on how to photograph 3D Art properly and we hope that any artists who choose to enter their art in the gallery’s online art competitions will read and review these helpful ideas. Here is a link to the post “Tips for Photographing 3 Dimensional Art”.

If you know of any 3D Artists or of any art organizations who may be interested in this announcement, we hope that you will make them aware of this news by forwarding this post to them.

New NanoMarkets Report Projects OLED Lighting Market to Hit Revenues of $1.4 billion in 2019

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has just published its latest forecasts of the OLED lighting market predicting a $1.4 billion market opportunity in 2019.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (May 15, 2014) — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has just published its latest forecasts of the OLED lighting market predicting a $1.4 billion market opportunity in 2019. The report, “OLED Lighting Markets-2014” (Code Nano-721) notes that while the sector has foundered for the past few years it now appears to be worthy of some renewed optimism based on both on both improvements in OLED lighting panel performance and recent expansion of manufacturing facilities.

Details of the report, including a table of contents and downloadable slides are available at http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/oled-lighting-markets-2014.

A companion report titled OLED Materials Markets 2014 will be issued in early June. See http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/oled-materials-markets-2014.

Highlights:

OLEDs aren’t just for luxury lighting any more. The efficacy and luminance of OLED lighting panels are reaching levels where OLED lighting firms can claim that their products are truly energy efficient and have the brightness that make them a practical form of lighting for offices and homes. For example, LG Chem says that next year it will have 135 lm/W panels with 5,000 cd/m2 luminance.

Until recently, most of the output of the OLED lighting business was development kits for designers. However, in the next few years, revenues from kits will be rapidly overtaken by revenues from OLED luminaires, with revenues from OLED luminaires for homes reaching almost $400 million in sales by 2019 and revenues from OLED office luminaires reaching almost $380 million in the same year.

OLED capacity continues to grow. In the past three years, Osram and Philips have invested $25 million and $57 million respectively in setting up OLED production lines. Meanwhile, Konica Minolta is currently constructing an OLED mass production facility at an approximate investment of around $100 million.

By next year, worldwide capacity for OLED lighting panels is expected to be around 30 million panels. This number is expected to grow to almost 40 million by 2019. NanoMarkets believes that in the next five years there will be a major influx of low-cost (and possibly government subsidized) Chinese suppliers that will force down OLED lighting prices in a manner similar to what the solar panel industry has experienced.

About the Report:

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the OLED lighting market, assesses its future potential and offers detailed eight-year forecasts for the OLED lighting business including volume (units and square meters shipped) and value projections of the following market segments: designer kits and related products, office and commercial lighting, residential lighting, non-automotive outdoor lighting, automotive lighting and customized installations.

The report also includes projections of manufacturing capacity for OLED lighting panels and an assessment of which geographic regions will prove the best customers for OLED lighting.

In addition, we examine the product development and marketing strategies of the leading and influential players in the OLED lighting sector, including both large and small lighting firms and the key OLED material suppliers. Among the firms discussed in this report are Acuity Brands, Audi, BASF, Blackbody, BJB, Cheil/Novaled, Dupont Teijin, ETAP Lighting, First-O-Light, Ford, Henkel, Kaneka, Konica Minolta, Ledon, LG Chem, Lumiotec, MC Pioneer, Merck, NEC Lighting, OLEDWorks, Orbotech, Osram, Philips, Pixelligent, Samsung, Sumitomo, UDC and WAC Lighting.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging markets in energy, electronics and other area created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts in OLED lighting and materials spaces, which it has been covering since 2006.
