VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Metrie™, the largest manufacturer of interior finishings in North America, announced today the launch of Metrie2 - Made to Measure - a first-of-its-kind division dedicated to providing custom trim and millwork design solutions, and industry-leading service to the hospitality industry and multi-dwelling unit developers.

"Metrie2 offers exceptional choices and flexibility to our hospitality and residential high-rise clients, while also removing the hassle of sourcing products from various suppliers - saving time in selection and installation," says Mimi Goldman, Vice President of Contract for Metrie2.

Combining heritage, quality and service, Metrie2 is the first company in North America to present the hospitality industry and multi-dwelling unit developers a one-stop-shop for trim and millwork with a trained staff of designers and product experts. Metrie2 offers interior finishings solutions, assistance and support at every step, from rendering to jobsite. Another strength of the company is its domestic manufacturing base, with hardwood, softwood, and MDF and specialized plants located throughout North America.

"This new division of Metrie serves as a hub for unique and innovative design ideas allowing contractors, designers and architects to select their trim and interior finishings from coordinated collections or create custom solutions to help make their design visions possible," says Goldman.

Clients can choose to create custom shapes from a wide range of wood species and materials, select from more than 5,000 individual architectural mouldings and access Metrie's Then & Now Finishing Collections™. Each coordinated design collection is inspired by a different architectural style and blends elements of modern and classic design. The collections include:

- Metrie™ French Curves™ Collection

- Metrie™ True Craft™ Collection

- Metrie™ Very Square™ Collection

- Metrie™ Fashion Forward™ Collection

- Metrie™ Pretty Simple™ Collection

Metrie2 will be unveiled at an innovative exhibit at this year's The Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference show in Las Vegas. The exhibit will be located at booth 2883 from May 14 - 16.

Since 1926, Metrie has committed to creating high-quality, finely crafted architectural elements, which has allowed them to become the largest supplier and manufacturer of solid wood and composite mouldings in North America. Previous high profile projects within the hospitality industry have included: Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Vancouver Convention Centre, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, and The Ritz-Carlton.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
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. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
