Beamz Interactive, Inc. Announces Product Showcase at the 2014 Florida Library Association Conference

The Jan Moran Collier City Learning Library Will Present the Value of Using the Beamz Interactive Music Product in Its Youth Services Program

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- Beamz Interactive, Inc. (OTCQB: BZIC), a leading developer of state-of-the-art interactive music products, today announced that Nadine Robinson, Librarian & Assistant Branch Manager of the Jan Moran Collier City Learning Library will be presenting the value of using the Beamz Interactive music product during the Cyberzone session on May 9th at the 2014 Annual Florida Library Association Conference held at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel in Lake Buena, FL from May 7-9, 2014.

The Cyberzone session will provide attendees an opportunity to experience cutting-edge technology products presented by libraries throughout Florida that have adopted innovative technologies with proven value through use in the programs and services currently offered.

"Beamz is an extraordinary tool in our youth services program," said Nadine Robinson, Librarian & Assistant Branch Manager of the Jan Moran Collier City Learning Library. "Its simplicity enables kids to start making great music within minutes, and the depth and the quality of the interactive music library ignites their creativity. Even more, we've noticed that music making with Beamz is helping kids build confidence and self-esteem. It's also providing them opportunities to collaborate and to teach other kids what they've learned, which will help them in all aspects of their lives."

Beamz is in use at the Jan Moran Collier City Learning Library for its youth services program offerings. Beamz and other technology products are available for the kids to develop new skills and to understand how technology products may help them learn and thrive in life. As a music making laser controller deploying MIDI technology, Beamz captures the attention of the kids and provides them a unique creative outlet to make music and to share their interactive music creations with friends.

"We're pleased that the Jan Moran Collier City Learning Library is having a great experience with Beamz in serving the youth in their community," said Al Ingallinera, Jr. Vice President of Product Management for Beamz Interactive. "Music making is a powerful creative outlet for kids of all ages, and these library programs and their outreach into their communities are extraordinary means to provide life-changing experiences. Music is a powerful tool, and with Beamz, everyone can participate."

Beamz interactive music is like Apple's Garage Band in reverse, without the music production work. Throughout the Beamz music library there are hundreds of instruments to experience with interactive music songs from all music genres and styles, including jam songs made in the style of iconic and today's chart topping artists. The interactive music is pre-programmed so that anyone can start making great sounding music within minutes, regardless of experience playing traditional instruments.

Within each Beamz interactive song there are 12 different instruments and music clips that may be added into the playback of a rhythm track, using the laser beams of the Beamz interactive music product as the "instrument." Interactive songs are made so that kids may creatively play the songs however they wish, selecting which instruments to include in the music making of a Beamz interactive song. As users get familiar with Beamz and its variety of interactive songs, the music making process and interaction with the laser beams becomes a highly-engaging and immersive experience for children of all abilities.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Machine Learning helps make complex systems more efficient. By applying advanced Machine Learning techniques such as Cognitive Fingerprinting, wind project operators can utilize these tools to learn from collected data, detect regular patterns, and optimize their own operations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands.

In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue an...
