The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2014-11-13T02:34:17Z QLD R&D partnerships trailblazing with laser technology 2014-11-13T02:34:17Z qld-r-amp-d-partnerships-trailblazing-with-laser-technology 21 Century Products Limited, a central QLD company which was recently awarded with a Skills & Knowledge grant by the Australian Commonwealth Department of Industry in June 2014, has made significant advancements in securing international markets for its high-tech innovations produced from the Australian Institute of High Energetic Materials, the R&D arm of the company. Prof. Colin Scanes as director of the company, and ex-Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee,proudly announces that, “IP Australia has issued a provisional patent (No 2014903628) to our own Advanced Aerospace Laser Technology. Aerospace civilian and military laboratories, car manufacturers, yachts and sport cars racers, civil engineers, and the designers of ships, submarines, rockets and torpedos, are potential users of a new technology.” The company has signed a Manufacturing Agreement with a specialised European laser company to manufacture 5,000 laser units at an approximate EXW cost of $5,000 per unit; and has also signed a Distributorship Agreements with American, European and Indian companies for distribution of 2,250 laser units.  The company received an order to deliver the first 300 laser units to Denver, Colorado by March 2015.  The wholesale price of one laser unit is negotiated at $36,000 (sale taxes excluded).  The expected profit to our company from the first order of 300 laser units exceeds $9,000,000. Prof. Scanes says the company will soon appoint a CEO with extensive corporate experience to fully exploit the commercial viability of its high-tech innovations, and secure world-wide markets to return exceptional returns for investors.  21 Century Products Limited is currently listed via a retail offer on the Australian Small Scale Offering Board (visit www.assob.com.au/hem) to help fund its initial push into international markets. Prof. Scanes says, “Our American partners are particularly interested in utilising our laser technology in defence industry applications. They are also looking forward to receiving the blue prints of an apparatus for creation of plasma zones of high velocity and pressure, which allows a relatively soft cracking the underground rock beds.  This system is of interest to oil and gas industry, because it has the potential to replace the existing “dirty” techniques for extraction of coal seam gas and to prolong the exploitation time of the existing wells.  The IP rights over this method belong to our company”. Grant puts rocket under development of flow visualisation technology 2014-10-27T00:04:02Z grant-puts-rocket-under-development-of-flow-visulaisation-technology Journalist Marc Barnbaum reports from Queensland: "Civilian and military laboratories dealing with 'flow visualisation' in aerospace and car manufacturing yachting and sport cars racing, civil engineering and the design of ships, submarines, rockets and torpedos are potential users of a new technology." "In his role as Honorary Chancellor of the Australian Institute of High Energetic Materials, CQ University Adjunct Senior Lecturer Dr Venelin Stamatov is the Chief Investigator for this promising new technology which has gained federal grant funding.”  “The Skills and Knowledge grant from the Department of Industry will under pin the commercialisation  of  a  novel  laser  flow  visualisation  technique  developed  for  imaging  of  flow around stationary and moving objects in aerospace, engineering and medical applications.” “The project is near the final stages of its technical development and is planned to be patented and ready for commercialisation within six months, Dr Stamatov says.”  “The project targets the commercialisation of a new method and tool for non-intrusive laser flow diagnostics, for use in the defence, aerospace, automotive, bio-medical, ship and submarine design industries. The innovation is called Digital Particle Streak Velocimetry (DPSV).” “Current professional methods for visualising and analysing fluid flow (Particle Image Velocimetry - PIV) are complex and expensive.” “The PIV technology uses expensive high power pulsed lasers and specialised cameras to resolve the velocity and direction of particles in the fluid flow being analysed. The PIV units may cost above $500,000 per instrument. By comparison DPSV technology is based on significantly cheaper low-power lasers, simple cameras and orogonal real-time analysis software."  "The DPSV unit is intended to be very cost effective, easy to use and utilised in situations where no other flow diagnistic techniques may work. The product is novel patentable and there is no competition from existing manufacturers and suppliers.”  ”This project involves the patenting of the method of DPSV and the algorithmfor 2-D and 3-D image processing.”  “The owner of the IP - an Australian public company 21 Century Products Limited, which trades and governs the Australian Institute of High Energetic Materials is the recipient of a Commercialisation Australia Skills and Knowledge grant funding.” “This grant will enable the Company to engage consultant services specialised in providing advice on business planning, capital raising, patent protection, strategic market entry and commercialisation of the Digital Particle StreakVelocimetry (DPSV) technology.” “The Company is currently listed on the Australian Small Scale Offerings Board for additional funding toward further development and marketing of the DPSVproduct to Australian and International customers.” “More information visit ww.assob.com.au/hem  Reference http://www.cqu.edu.au/cquninews/stories/general-category/grant-puts-rocket-under-development-of-flow-visualisation- technology, published on 07 July 2014. Apple and Google's H265 (Codec) compression technology trumped by Australian company 2014-06-23T09:06:00Z apple-and-google-s-h265-codec-compression-technology-trumped-by-australian-company JUNE 2014 Apple has been busy developing the future H265 or High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), which is a video compression standard, a successor to H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and has been recently approval by the ITU. Applying HEVC to encoding existing SD and HD content will not only enable lower bitrate connecting but provide cost savings! It will also open up the market making ultra-high-definition (UHD) videos possible. Google VP8 (and its successor VP9) has been developing this licence free codec as a royalty free alternative to anything that Apple offers. Google’s stated intention is not to be in direct competition with H265 (the code for Apple). It comes as no surprise that both Apple & Google are targeting 4K video content on its popular streaming site YouTube for application of this technology. The Stakes are high for both Apple & Google, who are both rumoured to be spending mega-dollars in development for this technology. Apple is even going to the lengths of developing its own processor to support HEVC on its iPads. While the developers at Apple & Google have been doing more of the same and pushing the industry in the same direction, a little known Australian Company (Intrak) has come up with a real game changer in the form of Beyond Compression Technology (MVFU). By taking an innovative and smarter approach MVFU reduces the size of files from both the existing compression technology and this latest compression technology by up to 80%! Not only can the smart minds at Intrak do this, they can also convert and reduce existing files to the latest compression standard by up to 80% reduction! Bet you that Apple and Google are wishing they thought of this Reduction Technology, which has now been patented.  Apple and Google executives can breathe a sigh of relive though, MVFU doesn’t compete with compression, it reduces the size of files even further. Intrak Australia was founded by Ibrahim Nahla, and is responsible for developing the MVFU system which, as previously mentioned, has successfully been able to reduce bandwidth up to 80% beyond compression reduction. The company is currently seeking to raise $200,000 AUD via the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform. To find out more visit: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/internet-reduction-technology-mvfu This technology called MVFU by Intrak, is deemed to be a “game changer and disruptive in nature” to the main players in the market such as Skype, YouTube, Sky and Commercial TV channels worldwide who rely on compression technology. When launched MVFU will prove to not only save users time and energy but also money. “We have succeeded in reducing the bandwidth significantly,” according to a statement from the CEO of Intrak Australia, Ibrahim Nahla, MVFU has been in research and development for a good eleven years. The technology has received international patents and also preparatory pre-MVFU development has been graced with the Asian innovation awards. Ibrahim Nahla says; ‘The desperate need for MVFU is only highlighted by the massive effort that Apple & Google have expended in developing the next generation compression technology. Some of the urgency in this development is the need to put the infrastructure in place so that Ultra HD takes off in the market place. Samsung alone has recently announce another $5.8 billion dollar investment in producing AMOLED panels, after already spending around $8 billion to develop this piece of HD TV tech. The benefits of MVFU technology seem endless, with less global carbon footprints, doubling the number of internet uses predicted to increase to 10 billion by 2016, and reducing the cost of internet and smart phone bills to name a few. As of right now there really is no green solution to the virtual world, and Intrak’s MVFU seems to be one of the first of the major players in the game. William Horton the Marketing & Commercial Manager of Intrak Australia says; ‘You might be interested to know that while you’re enjoying TV on your mobile and watching a film on an Ultra HD set, this is NOT without impact. Not only does the community have to pay for a larger pipe (more towers & cables and the rest) and yet more support infrastructure such as 3 million call centres and counting. All this activity uses power and lots of it, actually 30 Billion Watts annually! So the community yet again shells out large bucks to build massive power stations, so you can have a better digital entertainment experience. The cost is even greater as the 24/7 requirement of this support infrastructure (especially call centres) makes it hard for alternative energy to be fully implemented. Worse still the cost of electricity is linked to the amount consumed and there are no prizes for guessing which way it’s going and that up and up! This might be good if you’re an Apple or Google shareholder, but not so great if you’re elderly and struggling to make ends meet.  So let’s collectively save the world’s energy resources and get behind the campaign now!’   ABOUT Intrak Australia Pty Ltd is currently crowdfunding via the Indiegogo platform.  Accrutus Capital Management is issuing the press release on behalf of the company.  For more information please visit Intrak Australia website at http://www.intraktechnologies.com
