“LinkOptimizer makes me extremely happy”, says Nynke Tiekstra, the owner of design studio ColtsfootMedia in Friesland, Netherlands. “It converted 10,000 images in a 1800 pages project saving us at least 40 hours work, and it proved to be 100% accurate.”

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

-scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign,
-change their resolution to 300 dpi,
convert RGB images to CMY,
-resave JPEG images as TIFF,
-run a Photoshop Action on each image.

At the end of processing, LinkOptimizer reimports images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space, reduce packaged files sent to printer, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$259.95 (Light version: $179.95) as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 4.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.6-10.9 and works with Adobe InDesign and Photoshop CS3-CC 2014.

New NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Lighting Chips Markets to Reach Over $1.0 Billion by 2019

Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, NanoMarkets has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (June 24, 2014) — The market for LED drivers, MCUs, sensors and other chips used in smart lighting will grow from around $67 million in 2014 to $1.05 billion in 2019. This is according to a new report from industry analyst firm NanoMarkets titled, “The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014.” Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, NanoMarkets has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

For more details about the report: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/the-markets-for-smart-lighting-drivers-controllers-and-sensor-chips-2014.

The firm recently issued two separate reports on smart lighting markets in a two volume series. See http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/smart-lighting-markets-2014-v1-v2 for details.

About the report:

The report, “The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014,” provides insight into the market opportunities available to the semiconductor industry as the result of the current boom in smart lighting, which itself is part of the transition to an IoT. Smart lighting provides users high levels of energy efficiency, color tuning (mood enhancement) capabilities and/or visible light communications.

The report contains detailed eight-year market projections of seven major smart lighting chip types in both revenue and volume terms. Additional breakouts are provided by (1) the part of the lighting system in which the chips are used and (2) the technology generation of the system itself and (3) the type of building, vehicle or location in which the smart lighting systems will be used.

Firms mentioned in the report include: Acuity Brands, ARM, Atmel, Broadcom, California Eastern Labs, Casio, Cavet, Cypress Semiconductor, Daintree Networks, Digi, Dresden elektronik, Eastfield, Easylite, Echoflex, Energy Automation Systems, EnOcean, Fifth Light, FlexiPanel, Freescale, Leviton, IBSEN, Infineon, Intel, Leedarson, Libellium, Lumenergi, Lumetric, Lutron, Luxim, Marvell, Masco, Microchip Technology, MK Electric, MMB Research, Nivis, NXP, OLEDCOMM, Omnio, Osram, Panasonic, Philips, Radiocrafts, Radios Inc., Renesas, RF Monolithics, Schneider Electric, Sena, Sharp, Siemens, Silicon Labs, STMicroelectronics, Supreme Architecture, Sylvania, Telegesis, Texas Instruments, Universal Lighting, and Zonoff.

From the report:

The LED lighting market is expected to expand rapidly and much of the next-generation of LED lighting being deployed will be “smart.” We are seeing a growing interest in smart lighting by the chipmakers as part of their refocusing on Internet-of-Things opportunities. New types of intelligent LED drivers with embedded sensors and MCUs are expected to emerge as a result. Sales of LED drivers for smart lighting systems are expected to reach $525 million by 2019.

Despite such growth, LED driver chips for energy efficient lighting will commoditize quickly. It will become increasingly hard to make the case for smart lighting on just efficiency grounds anymore. As a result, NanoMarkets believes that chipmakers will then turn their attention to color-tunable lighting for improved mood, health and job performance. Here there is still considerable opportunity to designing innovative chips enabling cool-to-warm adjustment and the ability to cycle through a range of colors. Chips consumed by color tuning smart lighting systems will reach almost $260 million by 2019. Future light tuning chips for lighting systems will also be built around a new generation of LED microarrays.

Standards development for smart lighting-related wireless networking has accelerated in the past year. Important new developments in this area include the evolution of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to control lighting using QR codes and the emergence of a Google protocol for smart lighting networking that incorporates Ipv6. Meanwhile, ZigBee light bulbs getting cheaper thanks to recent “smart lamp” introductions from GE and possibly others. By 2019, the revenues generated by smart lighting sensors are expected to exceed $220 million.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in solid-state lighting, energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts of this kind and has been covering the smart lighting space for more than four years.

Rosendin Electric Sponsors Safe Kids’ Car Seat Inspection

Rosendin Electric and Safe Kids Collaborate on San Jose Event to Promote Car Seat Safety for Silicon Valley Children.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (July 18, 2014) — Rosendin Electric, the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, is sponsoring a free child car seat safety fitting and inspection with Safe Kids (http://www.safekids.org/coalition/safe-kids-california), the global organization dedicated to promoting children’s safety. The car seat inspection is scheduled to take place at the Kohl’s parking lot at 2323 McKee Road, San Jose, August 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Statistics show that a correctly installed car seat can prevent injury or death to a child in 73 percent of automobile accidents; however, four out of every five child car seats are improperly installed. Safe Kids is committed to promoting child safety around the world, including organizing safety fitting and inspection events for parents.

Members of the California Highway Patrol, as well as the Santa Clara County Public Health Department, will be on hand for the August event to conduct inspections and demonstrate the proper use of car seats. Replacement seats will be provided, when appropriate, at no charge, while supplies last. The safety fitting and inspection is open to anyone who wants to ensure their car seats are installed correctly.

“We are delighted to be able to help Safe Kids fund and organize this safety inspection for parents,” said Aaron Muffi, Safety Manager at Rosendin Electric. “With financial help from Aldridge Electric and Bay Tool and Supply we were able to purchase new car seats, tents, and coolers for the event. Rosendin Electric has received national and local recognition for our on-the-job and at-the-office Safety Program, so this is a great way to carry our message to the community and help save children’s lives at the same time.”

This is the second time that Rosendin Electric has sponsored with Safe Kids. Last October Rosendin Electric worked with Safe Kids to sponsor a similar event where they were able to help 53 families, including inspecting child car seats and replacing 23 faulty seats.

Rosendin Electric, Inc., headquartered in San Jose, California, is an employee-owned electrical engineering, power and communications provider and is the largest privately held electrical contractor in the United States.
