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.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. 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 and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
SYS-CON Events announced today that Bsquare has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's @ThingsExpo, which will take place on November 1–3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. For more than two decades, Bsquare has helped its customers extract business value from a broad array of physical assets by making them intelligent, connecting them, and using the data they generate to optimize business processes.
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
SYS-CON Events announced today that Commvault, a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, has been named “Bronze Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on November 1–3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...
