LinkOptimizer for InDesign Eliminates Security Hassles on macOS Mojave

Zevrix Solutions announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.19, a maintenance update to company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer lets users automatically eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, convert image formats and colors, embed profiles and more. The new version eliminates the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing – a security measure introduced in macOS Mojave that prevents interaction between different applications without prior user authorization.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.19, a maintenance update to its image processing automation plug-in for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, save production costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

The new version eliminates the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing, a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave. Under the new policy, different apps can no longer interact with each other without prior user authorization. This change directly affects such tools as LinkOptimizer, which require access to InDesign and other system resources to perform complex workflow automation tasks. The new update streamlines the authorization process by clearing all permissions during launch time, which eliminates workflow interruptions during file processing. LinkOptimizer will also reset Apple Event permissions automatically if the authorization was previously revoked by accident.

“LinkOptimizer has changed my life and saved me days and days of work as a retoucher for an international quarterly magazine,” says Steve Krason of Chicago based SK Design Group. “It’s a lifesaver”.

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

Optimize multiple InDesign files
-Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
Convert RGB images to specific CMYK profile
-Change their resolution to 300 dpi
-Run a Photoshop action on each image
-Resave PNG files as PSD

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.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$259.95 (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.

Fulham New EliteControl Power over Ethernet Driver Receives 2019 Sapphire Award from LEDs Magazine

Latest PoE LED Driver with Built-in Wireless Bluetooth Mesh Access Latest Fulham Component to Support Intelligent, Remote Lighting Control.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, is pleased to announce that Fulham’s new EliteControl PoE 2-Channel LED Driver has received this year’s Sapphire’s Award for innovation in LED drivers from LEDs Magazine. The awards were presented at Strategies in Light in Las Vegas February 28.

The Sapphire Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts using various criteria, including innovation, user value, sustainability, impact, and meeting a defined need. The new Power over Ethernet (PoE) driver fills a void in the solid-state lighting market and was developed to meet the growing demand of Fulham customers for a PoE lighting solution. Fulham first demonstrated prototypes of its new PoE drivers at LightFair 2018 in May 2018.

“We are delighted that LEDs Magazine has recognized our new EliteControl PoE driver as a recipient of its Sapphire Award,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing and Business Development for Fulham. “More of our customers are looking for luminaire control options and new ways to harness solid-state lighting as a platform for building automation. In fact, we have received a number of requests for a Power over Ethernet driver, and with this new EliteControl driver we offer both PoE and wireless Bluetooth mesh access. It’s part of Fulham’s commitment to continued innovation and anticipation of our customers’ needs.”

June Griffin, publisher of LEDs Magazine (http://www.ledsmagazine.com), said “This prestigious program allows our LED and Lighting Group to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and leaders in the solid-state lighting industry. Our 2019 Finalists are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”

The EliteControl PoE 2 Channel Driver uses power delivered over an Ethernet cable and has two-channel output for color mixing. The driver can handle an input voltage of 42.5 to 57VDCm with an input power of 12.95W maximum per port (as defined by IEEE 802.3af), 25.5W maximum per port (802.3at), and 51.0W maximum per port (UPOE). This constant current/constant power driver also includes Bluetooth mesh wireless access for remote dimming control.

The PoE driver output range and other functions can be preprogrammed using Fulham’s TPSB-100 SmartSet Controller and software. PoE color tuning and diming controls are managed using an amBX Smart Control management station that issues commands over the same Ethernet cable that delivers power.

The 2019 Sapphire Awards winners were announced at the Gala Event at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas on February 28, 2019. This event occurs during the annual Strategies in Light show held February 26 – March 1, 2019.

T5 Data Centers Poised to Meet Emerging Challenges of Mission-Critical Hyperscale & Enterprise Computing

T5 CEO Cites Record of 10 Years’ of Success and Innovation as the Foundation to Meet New Market Challenges and Continued Delivery of “Forever On” Data Services.

Atlanta, GA, USA — After a decade of delivering “forever on” data center services, T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale and enterprise computing environments, has just completed its best year in 2018. As the company moves into 2019, T5 CEO Pete Marin predicts another strong year as T5 prepares to meet the new challenges of the rapidly changing cloud computing market.

“T5 has been able to stay ahead of the continually changing data center market by combining future-proof facilities with innovation, superior expertise and customer service,” said Marin. “With a 10+ year record of success, we continue to expand our data center portfolio and provide services that anticipate our customers’ needs. We have a growing list of satisfied customers and industry accolades such as the Uptime Institute’s Continuous Uptime Award, so we have earned our reputation for reliability and delivering ‘forever on’ services.”

New demands on hybrid computing architectures are presenting new challenges to data center occupiers and colocation providers. Hybrid clouds are making up the bulk of corporate computing services, giving users access to vast public clouds while enabling them to retain control over their most sensitive applications. In addition, Edge computing is gaining ground as more companies decentralize their IT infrastructure and use regional data centers to shorten the backhaul and reduce latency for applications such as managing Internet of Things (IoT) devices. In fact, the proliferation of IoT, mobile computing, and other data traffic is putting an added strain on data centers.

At the same time, there is an ongoing shortage of qualified data center personnel. According to a study by the Uptime Institute, 45 percent of data center operators said that lack of qualified staff will limit data center growth for the next five to seven years, and 38 percent said they are having trouble finding qualified candidates to fill open IT positions.

“T5 is one of the few companies able to offer end-to-end data center solutions from construction to ongoing operations,” Marin added. “In addition to our Tier III-plus data centers, we have T5 Construction Services to help with planning and custom build-outs, and we have T5 Facilities Management to provide world-class operations expertise. We are a one-stop-shop with the staff and resources to deliver tailored hyperscale and enterprise solutions, no matter what the requirements.”

The company has plans for international expansion in 2019. T5 has already announced the addition of T5@Ireland, and the company will expand its international coverage in the months ahead.
