ArcSoft’s simplicam™ Powered by Closeli™ Awarded “Best of Show” at 2014 MacWorld/iWorld Conference and Expo Presented by MacWorld and IDG Consumer & SMB

On Friday March 28, 2014, Macworld, the world's foremost Mac authority, revealed that ArcSoft’s simplicam powered by Closeli received the “Best of Show” award at the 2014 MacWorld/iWorld Conference and Expo. simplicam powered by Closeli, the only home monitoring solution with facial detection that tells you if someone is home, was selected from hundreds of products that were showcased during the annual three-day conference in San Francisco March 27-29, 2014. The annual feature presentation honors those products that have pushed the boundaries of innovation, quality, and overall creativity.

simplicam powered by Closeli is the first and only home monitoring solution providing intelligent alerts based on facial detection, providing users notifications if someone is in the house, but not disturbing them if a branch, or cat, moves within the frame.

“We are thrilled that simplicam powered by Closeli was recognized as one of the top new products at MacWorld this year,” said ArcSoft’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, Caroline Tien-Spalding. “MacWorld is the ultimate event for those who use and love Apple products. Our fans and customers continue to inspire us to design products for people who value connectedness, safety and piece of mind. This honor reaffirms ArcSoft’s objective in setting the standard in the connected home experience.”

The simplicam camera’s easy to set-up, flexible mounting options and watch anywhere technology provides users with the ability to watch what is happening at home from their smartphone, tablet, or computer in 720p HD video quality. Users can also enjoy live viewing and motion/sound alerts from a smartphone via the Closeli mobile app or web. Additional Closeli Recording Services provide the unique facial detection technology and several recording options as short as one day, or as long as 21 days. Closeli Recording Services also offer users the ability to receive enhanced features on their smartphone, such as recording in the cloud, easy editing and sharing options. This smart and secure solution is fully customizable, with automatic on/off options, SSL encrypted video and motion detection notification, all done with the touch of a button on your smartphone.

Editors considered hundreds of products before narrowing the field down to the 11 winners that were presented at this year's Macworld Conference and Expo.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.
