iKlips DUO Campaign on launches Indiegogo

iklipAdam Elements, a leading smart lifestyle solutions brand, is excited to announce the launch of its iKlips DUO campaign on Indiegogo. The iKlips DUO is the latest version of the iKlips, which was successfully launched on Indiegogo in the previous year. Following in its footsteps, the new iKlips DUO revolutionises the way in which you manage your device and content on the go. The DUO is not only faster and more robust, but also comes with the intuitive iKlips 2.0 app that allows you to organise your files, share them across all your devices and use them on the go as you like it. With the new iKlips DUO, it’s iOS your way.

 

iKlips DUO – the best made better
If you became attached to iKlips the first time round, you will love what we have in store with the new iKlips DUO. It is a design that has been perfected to be more practical, with a redesigned body to fit even more iPhone and iPad cases and a silicone body sleeve for added protection. Losing connector caps is now a thing of the past. Available in four vivid colours and four storage capacities, iKlips DUO provides you with the necessary extra storage to keep your photos, music and games organised on the go. Like the first iKlips, the new iKlips DUO is also produced with top-quality and super high-speed MLC flash memory for iPhone, iPad, and iPad Pro – the fastest flash memory type for iOS devices. In addition to enabling greater speeds, it also provides greater stability and a longer lifespan. And with its gorgeous high-grade aluminium body, you will want to use it as often as possible. It is gorgeous to hold and use.

iKlips 2.0 – the DUO’s other half
iKlips 2.0 is the other half of what makes iKlips DUO even better. It is an intuitive app that makes using your iKlips DUO an even easier experience, featuring 3D Touch support, multi-select, Split View, password protection, Drop To, and even integration with Apple’s Music app to access your iTunes purchases. Now all your music, photos, videos, work projects, Adobe files, and all your other creations can be securely shared between devices – iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro, Mac, and PC. Having the ability to organise, store more and share on the go with friends, family, and colleagues gives you the power to do more. iKlips 2.0 is the way you want to manage your device – easily.

iKlips DUO on Indiegogo
Last year, iKlips was launched in Indiegogo and reached 425% of its initial funding goal by April 2015. This year, Adam Elements plans to repeat this success with the launch of its iKlips DUO campaign. In the hope to reach more people, a successful Indiegogo campaign will help to bring iKlips DUO to the market quicker and cheaper and determine whether to commit iKlips DUO to mass production. Once this goal is reached, more people will be able to enjoy the benefit that it brings to managing content on the go.

If you are curious about the campaign, we invite you to have a look yourself: https://goo.gl/sbwRFI

AOC launches the new 75 Series

aocWith their new 75 Series, AOC presents a new selection of energy-efficient 16:9 widescreen monitors for its professional customers. The stylish, comprehensively certified displays will be available in various sizes ranging from 18.5″ to 27″ (47 cm to 69 cm) at its largest, making the monitors suitable for different working environments. Users can select between a variety of high quality panels (IPS, TN) and will also benefit from the integrated Flicker-Free technology, ensuring comfortable viewing even during long periods of working. The 75 Series thus caters to various needs, making it an ideal addition to workplaces of all kinds.

Functional and sleek design
All monitors in the 75 Series come in an elegant, clean design in matte black and, with VESA wall mount compatibility that makes it possible to easily attach the displays to a wall, thus allowing for a versatile usage across different office settings. The monitors can consequently be utilised for public presentations, but also cut a fine figure at the workplace. Furthermore, each display comprises integrated stereo loudspeakers, meaning that users do not need to add extra clutter to their workstation.

High quality panels and enhanced connectivity
All monitors boast high quality panels (IPS, TN) and, excluding the E975SWDA and the Q2775PQU, also come with Full HD resolution. Particularly the I and Q models of the series impress with their IPS-panels, enabling colour uniform images and wide viewing angles. A highlight of the series is the Q2775PQU, which offers QHD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels) and thus enables users to enjoy particularly crisp, detailed images as well as a more spacious desktop. It also allows for superior multitasking, being able to display four application windows with 720p resolution each at the same time. All models – with the exception of the 18.5″ model E975SWDA, which does not have HDMI – comprise VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs for connecting a variety of either digital or analogue sources. The higher models further encompass DisplayPort and USB 3.0, with the latter allowing users to easily connect USB peripherals. A fast charge USB port also empowers them to charge their mobile devices’ internal batteries extra-fast using the monitor. The main digital connection cables (DVI and DisplayPort) are included, so that users can get right to work.

Energy-efficient and ergonomically friendly
In a modern working environment, energy-efficient technology is of upmost importance to businesses who are interested in operating in a sustainable and cost-saving way. AOC’s new monitors of the 75 Series shine with their low energy consumption levels and are fully certified with a variety of ecolabels (e.g. EPA 6.0, TCO 6.0, EPEAT Gold). A hard power switch helps save even more energy when the displays are not in use. Another important aspect next to energy-efficiency is user health. An ergonomically friendly workplace is important to keep employees healthy and comfortable. All displays within the 75 Series are thus equipped with an array of ergonomic options that allow users to adjust the monitors to their individual needs. All 75P models are hereby fitted with height-adjustment, pivot, swivel and tilt functions. Each monitor’s usability is further increased by the integrated Flicker-Free technology that reduces flickering effects, which can frequently lead to the occurrence of eyestrain after long usage periods, particularly during office work.

The following models of the new AOC 75 Series will be available in March 2016:

With IPS panel:
I2475PXQU
I2775PQU
Q2775PQU

With TN panel:
E975SWDA

ALCATEL PLUS 10 2-in-1 LTE Windows 10 device

asIncreasing its offering of Windows devices, ALCATEL announced the launch of its PLUS 10 2-in-1 device, running on the latest Windows 10 operating system.

“PLUS 10 is ALCATEL’s first 2-in-1 device with Windows 10, and we’re very proud of all the functionality we’ve built into it,” said Vittorio Di Mauro, General Manager of Smart Connectivity at ALCATEL. “PLUS 10 goes everywhere I go – the house, the office, even the park! It’s a fun product that sparks a lot of conversation (and jealousy).”

“We are excited to welcome ALCATEL to the Windows ecosystem and add their innovative LTE 2-in-1 tablet to our Windows device portfolio. The PLUS 10’s unique features, combined with Windows 10, provide the optimal balance between productivity and entertainment from wherever you go,” said Peter Han, Vice President, Worldwide OEM Marketing, Microsoft Corp.

3 Modes, 1 Irresistible Price
Mobile office: With its compatible 4G/Wi-Fi-connected keyboard, PLUS 10 offers a complete mobile desktop experience. It can be used in laptop mode to type documents or create spreadsheets, and in dock mode to display presentations or slides. With its multiple ports — rare to see in this device category — PLUS 10 further shows its hard-working sensibility, by enabling connections to a hard drive, mouse, USB key, secondary screen and more.

In addition, PLUS 10 has a default memory of 32 GB that can be ramped up with an external SD card for extra space for holding pictures, videos etc.

Entertainment center: PLUS 10 can be used in dock mode to view videos or movies. To top it off, the dual front speakers, with immersive 3D sound, coupled with the high-resolution (1280 x 800) IPS screen technology, make film watching and gaming an extra pleasure.

Travel companion: Exceptionally convenient to carry, PLUS 10 is compact and 40 percent lighter than an average laptop.

A look at energy labels, green packaging and energy saving monitors

aocCreating a sustainable workplace is becoming increasingly important for both professional and home users alike. Today, opting for energy-efficient, sustainably-produced technology is not only understood as being good for the planet, but also of benefit to users who can, for example, save ongoing electricity costs by choosing a monitor with low energy consumption. But considering the diverse certifications and eco-saving functions that currently exist in the various displays on the market, users often have trouble distinguishing the specific differences in eco-friendliness. To help make this task a little bit easier, AOC will this year present an overview of selected environmental certificates and eco-friendly monitor functions to assist users in their decision to make their workstation more sustainable.

EnergyStar 6.0 – Lower energy consumption
While there are several international and regional environmental certificates, users interested in exploring the sustainability of their current or future monitor will most likely come across the EnergyStar, TCO and EPEAT labels. The EnergyStar 6.0 certification mark hereby primarily provides information on the energy consumption and efficiency levels of a monitor. For example, it requires the display to automatically go into standby mode after a set period of non-usage. The label, which all current AOC monitors have been certified with, also specifies low energy consumption levels of less than 0.5 W for displays during standby. Purchasing a monitor that is certified with the most recent version, EnergyStar 6.0, thereby ensures a reduction in overall user energy needs and can potentially generate long-term cost savings.

TCO 6.0 and EPEAT – Ensuring sustainability throughout the lifecycle
Monitors labelled with TCO 6.0 and EPEAT fulfil a range of criteria that go beyond mere energy consumption levels. Both certificates require displays to be manufactured in a socially responsible manner using environmentally sound materials. Displays labelled with both certificates can be expected to enjoy a long lifetime. As such, they not only contribute to a reduction in electronic waste but also comprise a durable investment for their users. The TCO 6.0 label also ensures that displays numerous other requirements, such as high image quality standards as well as a diverse range of ergonomic adjustment options, which can promote user health benefits. Likewise, the EPEAT certificate requires monitors to be assessed in terms of their sustainability throughout their entire lifecycle, which is defined using a variety of both obligatory and optional criteria: e.g. is at least 90% recyclable packaging used. Depending on how many of these criteria a display meets, determines its Bronze, Silver or Gold rating.

Energy-saving functions
Most AOC monitors are not only fully certified with important labels but also incorporate additional features that help users work even more sustainably. In addition, some models boast an integrated zero power switch to allow users to shut down the monitor completely to save energy while away from the screen. All AOC displays include an Eco mode, which allows users to optimise energy consumption by adjusting the screen settings to different types of use, such as reading text or playing games. In terms of their power consumption, selected models of the Pro line use less than 0.1 W in standby mode. Moreover, the AOC e-Saver power management software enables users to set up a time period after which the monitor is shut down automatically to save energy.
