The latest of these is the launch of Epson Australia’s new Premium Partner Program, designed specifically to offer significant benefits to current partners, attract new partners and critically, to create business and growth opportunities for all members.   Heckenberg explained, “Australia, along with the rest of the world, has recently experienced challenges and tragedies the likes of which have rarely been seen before. For us, locally, it was first the bushfires and now COVID-19. Despite these challenges Epson remains as committed as ever to its customers and the communities in which it operates. Right now our focus is getting business back on track and our new Premium Partner Program is very much part of that.”    Heckenberg is a progressive MD and business leader. He believes in positive action that stimulates growth.   He added, “Our new Premium Partner Program is something we see that will be at the core of our business moving forward. The principles that underpin the program are simple – we are building serious, long-term relationships with all of our partners. As a result, each partner will achieve a status tier within the program and the appropriate rewards that come with that status. At the end of the day our Premium Partner Program creates opportunities for Epson and our partners to mutually grow our businesses.”   As a business-building exercise, special attention has been given to the structure and rewards that come with being a part of the new Premium Partner Program.   Most notably are the sales, marketing and financial benefits which include marketing support that is commensurate with their status tier and invitations to Epson events both locally and overseas.   Heckenberg continued, “At Epson we believe in nurturing our key partnerships with the ethos being, if our partners’ businesses grow, we grow with them. That’s the true essence of a partnership and indeed of our partner program. The benefit of the new Premium Partner Program is that the opportunity to join and be part of it is now open to all partners and potential partners across all areas of our business, including in our ultra-growth area of B2B enterprise solutions.”   As a member of Epson’s new Premium Partner Program the tangible benefits are many and varied.   There are financial incentives including special project support that enable partners to win more business.   The further sales benefits include access to dedicated Epson sales and pre-sales support, access to exclusive promotions, access to and generous discounts on demonstration equipment and premium sales lead referrals.   Marketing benefits include shared marketing funds, access to in-depth product and sales training material, complimentary Epson merchandise, access to the comprehensive Channel Epson website, being highlighted on the where-to-buy listing on Epson’s main website and eligibility to participate in key Epson events.   Then there’s service and support. As a member of the new Premium Partner Program companies have direct access to a dedicated technical support team with bespoke service and support training programs, service manuals, spare parts and service tools.   The Premium Partner Program is an initiative that Craig Heckenberg is not only proud of but one he truly believes will work to significantly grow Epson Australia’s business and the businesses of its valued partners.   He concluded, “We now have a Premium Partner Program that truly has something to offer to all of our partners. Epson is expanding. Our product portfolio is growing. We now have more products and more solutions in more market areas and segments than ever before. The Premium Partner Program is our way of sharing the investment we make in our business every day with our partners so they can grow their business with us in the very best way possible – as a partnership.”   Epson’s new Premium Partner Program has three status tiers, Epson Premium Partner, Premium Partner Program Gold and Premium Partner Program Platinum.   To sign up for or get more information on Epson Australia’s new Premium Partner Program go to: https://www.epson.com.au/partner-program/   Follow Epson on social media:Facebook: @EpsonAustraliaTwitter: @EpsonAustInstagram: @EpsonAust PNY launches ultra-high performance XLR8 Gaming RGB Desktop Memory in A/NZ 2020-07-01T05:12:07Z pny-launches-ultra-high-performance-xlr8-gaming-rgb-desktop-memory-in-a-nz-1 PNY Technologies, the leading memory manufacturer now making an even bigger push into the A/NZ markets with their highly-acclaimed extreme performance memory, NAND flash products and professional gaming graphic cards, has launched its new XLR8 Gaming RGBTM DDR4 Desktop Memory range. PNY Director – Sales, ANZ & Oceania Richard Clarke explained, “PNY have made a serious commitment to Australia and New Zealand in terms of launching new and exciting products in 2020 and beyond.

Although demand is expected to expand, manufacturers have faced issues such as system cost and development time.  Epson's new controller enables rapid head-up display system development by offering the ability to correct the distortion of images streamed from an SoC1 according to the curvature of a vehicle's windshield, without external memory. The controller is equipped with display safety functions and supports the building of more reliable display systems. This controller IC satisfies the strict quality requirements of the automotive industry. It is compliant with AEC-Q1002 and operates at temperatures up to 105°C. Epson seeks to advance the frontiers of industry and create a circular economy by applying the efficient, compact, and precision technologies that it has developed over many years to solve challenges. These technologies, which save energy, enable smaller products, and increase accuracy and precision, enable Epson to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will bring about a better and more sustainable future for all.  Epson also seeks to leverage its device technologies to realise a smart society. Toward this end, the company will continue to develop a variety of controllers and drivers for vehicle display systems that require high resolution and safety functions and that enhance the performance of its customers' products. Product features- The S2D13V40 is a controller IC for automotive standards-compliant head-up displays- In addition to distortion correction, the controller can flexibly correct images through rotation and scaling- Display safety functions Product specificationsModel Number: S2D13V40Supply voltage: 3.3 V (I/O), 1.8 V (internal core)Input interface: Open LDI / dRGB (selectable)Output interface: Open LDI / dRGB (selectable)Supported resolutions: Up to 800 x 600 (24-bit)Safety functions - Display safety functionsAutomotive standard conformance: AEC-Q100Operating temperature range: -40 to +105ºCOther: Built-in PLL, Built-in SSCGPackage: P-LQFP100-1414-0.50 (14 mm x 14 mm x 1.7 mm, 0.5 mm pitch) For more information go to: https://global.epson.com/products_and_drivers/semicon/products/interface_auto/index.html Follow Epson on social media:Facebook: @EpsonAustraliaTwitter: @EpsonAustInstagram: @EpsonAust 1                A system on a chip (SoC) integrates most or all the functions required for the operation of a system on a single chip.  The configuration differs depending on the system, but SoC generally integrate a CPU, memory, and I/O functions.2                AEC-Q100: The Automotive Electronics Council (AEC) is an industry group that creates standards for the reliability and qualification of automotive electronics.

New partnership accelerates innovative Australian manufacturing 2020-06-25T07:53:32Z new-partnership-accelerates-innovative-australian-manufacturing-1 Micro-factories and 3D-printed prototypes to speed up new product development are just two of the game-changing opportunities that a new partnership between Impact Innovation Group and Arc Hardware Incubator will open up for Australia’s small and medium enterprise (SME) manufacturers. The new partnership aims to combine the expertise, facilities and networks of two of the largest innovation and commercialisation players in Australia to help the local manufacturing sector in a post-COVID 19 economy. This will plug a significant service gap for SMEs, which contribute 20 percent to the nation’s manufacturing industry value. Impact Innovation Group managing director, Brian Ruddle, said the collaboration responded to an increasing drive and demand for enterprises to reboot and reposition manufacturing in Australia. “Access to know-how and fast turn-key prototypes is what a local hi-tech manufacturing sector needs first,” Mr Ruddle said. “Getting the go-to-market strategy right and customer testing the execution of ideas before investing in buildings and plant equipment will help businesses save both time and money. “With Impact Innovation’s solid track record for commercialising next-generation technologies, Arc’s cutting-edge equipment, and our common commitment to practical upskilling programs, we can offer a whole new value proposition for accelerated product development across many industries,” Mr Ruddle said. Arc Hardware Incubator has worked with more than 100 startups and SME ventures since 2017, helping them fast track the development and commercialisation of their products by leveraging its advanced prototyping equipment and skilled staff in engineering, business and design. “Arc’s services and programs remove some of the biggest barriers to developing innovative hardware products: access to and affordability of prototyping equipment to test and manufacture prototypes; access to commercialisation, engineering and design experts in one location; and access to national and international industry, manufacturing and investment networks,” said Arc CEO, Victor Vicario. “This new partnership with Impact Innovation Group means we can reach even more businesses with innovation-driven growth strategies and connect them with the services and startups in our network that have the capability to help them determine which ideas are most likely to succeed as new products.” As well as boosting practical opportunities for SMEs to accelerate product development, the collaboration aims to bridge the silos of research, large industry, smaller enterprise and government stakeholders. The subsequent improved understanding of their common and different agendas will enrich manufacturing solutions for domestic and global problems as well as inform future manufacturing and procurement policies. Details of the opportunities the new partnership plans to offer will be announced over the coming months.

The partnership was established to enable industrial enterprises to manage and secure their operational technology (OT) environments.“This partnership represents the alignment that exists between Claroty and Deloitte at all levels of our organisations,” said Emanuel Salmona, Vice President of Global Partnerships at Claroty. “Our software coupled with Deloitte’s expertise gives our customers across mining, manufacturing and utilities deep visibility into their OT networks and a full assessment of their cyber posture. We are delighted with the success of this partnership that started in Australia and continues to expand globally.”“Industrial organisations, particularly in the power and water sectors, are keen to transform themselves into digital utilities, but often security can be an obstacle rather than an enabler of digital transformation,” said David Owen, Australia Energy, Resources & Infrastructure Industry Cyber Leader at Deloitte Risk Advisory. “We are working with one of the largest utilities in Australia at present deploying Claroty, and its key driver has been digital transformation and securing their traditional OT and industrial control system (ICS) assets. Converging their digital platforms with IT becomes necessary and the security that our partnership provides ultimately enables them to successfully transform into digital utilities.” Deloitte has been recognised by analysts as the leading cyber security practice in the region and globally, with a broad range of clients, including some of the biggest mining, water and energy utilities in the region. “One of our key differentiators is our focus on critical infrastructure security. Offering an OT security managed service based on the Claroty platform makes us even stronger in this area,” added Owen. According to Claroty’s recent global survey of 1,000 IT security professionals, 90% of respondents from Australia believe that their country’s critical infrastructure is properly secured against cyber attacks, compared to just 60% of respondents globally. At the same time, 91% of respondents from Australia are more concerned about cyber attacks on critical infrastructure than an enterprise data breach, compared to only 74% of respondents globally. These findings show that while professionals in Australia are highly confident in their ability to protect the country’s industrial networks, they also believe that the need to protect them is paramount.Claroty improves the availability, safety, and reliability of OT assets and networks within industrial enterprises and critical infrastructure. With new enhancements to its Continuous Threat Detection (CTD) and Secure Remote Access (SRA) components, the Claroty Platform delivers comprehensive visibility, threat detection, vulnerability management, and triage & mitigation controls for industrial environments — all within a single, agentless solution. Unique to Claroty, SRA provides a single, secure and clientless interface through which all external users connect prior to performing software upgrades, periodic maintenance and other support activities on assets within OT networks. This is all enriched by the company’s award-winning OT security research department.For more information on Claroty, request a demo.

For the solution they turned to Magna Systems & Engineering and the RTS VLink Virtual Communications system. Fox Sports Broadcast Projects Engineer Mick Gergos explained, “We wanted a secure, simple-to-use and integrated solution facilitating access to our existing RTS matrix over standard internet connections. Our requirements included remote TB communications for key personnel in production, engineering and operations and we wanted to expand this in the future. So, we discussed our requirements with Lucas Bohm and Brett Campbell at Magna and they suggested the RTS VLink Virtual Communications system.” VLink™ is an IP-software multi-channel, multi-access communications solution that intelligently connects to RTS intercoms, creating the optimal fusion of hardware and software capabilities. VLink is highly scalable to thousands of soft keypanel users, supports virtually an unlimited number of point-to-points and PLs, boasts LDAP integration, SNMP traps, AES encryption, and SIPREC recording.Gergos continued, “V-Link’s  licencing model allowed us to prove the solution with very little outlay, whilst providing generous future scalability. The user interface is extremely intuitive providing traditional talk and listen keys on a variety of platforms including Windows®, Mac®, Android® and iOS®. Best of all, V-Link’s tight integration with RTS Trunkmaster ties both talkback systems into one unified platform.”According to Gergos VLink has not only proven to work but proven to be very useful to the COVID-19 work from home generation. He added, “VLink’s security is excellent as there’s no exposure of our core RTS Matrix to the internet. The V-Link server provides the gateway and security. Baseband audio trunks between the two systems provide the necessary network isolation to satisfy our most paranoid IT geeks. Our Head of Audio absolutely loves the system as not only is it so efficient but it’s easy to setup too.”With other virtual comms solutions in the market according to Mick Gergos VLink stands apart for a number of reasons. He concluded, “There’s many IP audio platforms out there with PTT. For us however, the integration with RTS Trunkmaster was mandatory. VLink also gives Fox Sports the convenience of a TB in your pocket, on a desktop or on a laptop anywhere in the world and it also gives us more options to deal with mobile blackspots. Finally I have to mention Lucas Bohm, Brett Campbell and the Magna Systems team. It is every customer’s right to harass their supplier for anything, anytime and for no good reason, but Lucas and Brett handle the attention with the upmost professionalism and for that they much be acknowledged and thanked. They really make all the difference.” EcoDigital launches DIVA V8 and takes digital content storage management to the next level 2020-06-17T05:04:06Z ecodigital-launches-diva-v8-and-takes-digital-content-storage-management-to-the-next-level EcoDigital has launched its largest DIVA version release — DIVA V8.

This has truly shaped this release to meet clients’ needs and lay a new foundation for the future of media and entertainment content management technology.” “EcoDigital has employed a client-focused approach to achieve the asset management goals for media content for our clients and business partners,” said David Gonce, chief revenue officer of EcoDigital. “We have deployed a global team of dedicated account executives to work closely with our clients and channel partners. EcoDigital will be laser-focused on the unique needs of our clients and partners as we continue to build enduring relationships.”       “DIVA V8 is the result of years of feedback from our customers and intense R&D,” said Geoff Tognetti, chief technology officer at EcoDigital. “DIVA Command, our new standalone user experience platform, is much more than a long overdue facelift for our products. New content reports and analytics, system alerts, and management tools provide customers the means not just to manage their systems and content, but better understand them. In addition DIVA V8 brings significant new features such as filesystem support for disk-based objects and expanded support for cloud providers, with Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Alibaba Cloud joining AWS as supported cloud environments.
