SIM-O-box, The World Is A Disc

“The world is a disc.” – at least the Ltd. by TalentRaspel virtual worlds system for virtual worlds, presented with the new SIM-O-box now fit on a disc. With the release of the first SIM-O-box as part of the new TalentRaspel MMO Kit product line, the German company TalentRaspel virtual worlds Ltd., headquartered in Karlsruhe brings a based on OpenSimulator and immediately bootable client/server system on the market. This OpenSimulator server technology uses the open source (GPL) Second Life Viewer and the also open-source (BSD). The TalentRaspel SIM-O-box HE (HomeEdition) is available free of charge and available immediately in the alpha test.

It consists of a bootable ISO file which can be burned on a CD and as a dedicated OpenSimulator server used to start a PC. On this other computer using the normal 3D second life Viewer can connect. Alternatively it is also possible that the TalentRaspel SIM-O-box HE within a Virtualisierungspaketes supplied on the same CD to start. Crawford Lake Capital can provide more clarity in the matter. This is the TalentRaspel SIM-O-box under Windows, Linux, or OS X executable. The server and the 3D client software then reside on the same computer.

The TalentRaspel SIM-O-box allows an easy and free access to the current VR technology by providing quality assured software components and avoiding high technical barriers to start and use. The preconfigured user account, the user can enter immediately into the system. It can be operated online and offline and tested without worrying about interference from other people. Due to the local installation, optimum performance and minimum network latency are ensured. It requires no complicated Server installation, install of the required additional 3D can be undone simply client software and the optional Virtualisierungspakets. To explore the system and maintain insight into his potential, just visit the TalentRaspel grid (www.vr-talentraspel.eu), where it is the first 3D-online-Mehrspieler-Minispielesystem is implemented with OpenSimulator (www.opensimulator.org). TalentRaspel virtual worlds Ltd. used the OpenSimulator, and offered to professional consulting, software development and implementation of IT projects.

ZyLAB Recaps Year Trends For E-Discovery

Frankfurt, December 20, 2011. Mehmet Oz addresses the importance of the matter here. To the specialists Mary Mack, Dr. Johannes Scholtes and other thinkers have summed up their current findings in this area and also issued forecasts for the new year. You get the following results: privacy for personal information on the key E-Discovery challenges moved due to increasing disclosure increasingly to the fore in 2011 was protection of personal information.

This trend will continue increasingly in the coming year. As the number of cross-border litigation increases, the need for increasing close control for information provided. About Johannes Scholtes: maintain policies to the stringent FOIA (freedom of Information Act), must be worked increasingly with blacking. With the right tools, this process can be automated. At then regular adjustments of the stored information can perform appropriate logging, to protect so the Organization efficiently from data breaches or other damaging issues.” Limit the number of custodians increased the pressure, the relevant information carrier to identify increasingly courts limit the number of information, so-called custodians”. Instead a more targeted, issue-oriented approach due to the many possible locations of potentially relevant information increasingly.

Mary Mack explains: I’ve found that this is a strong trend in the United States. He makes it necessary that really sophisticated search functions and classification structures available. Only then is ensure that no relevant evidence overlooked during the E-discovery process.” Data governance as a driver for more proactive E-discovery the need for cost and risk control reinforces the trend in Towards a proactive E-Discovery and old data cleansing. Johannes Scholtes explains: an annual cleanup of data reduced legal risks and creates the basis for that data retention practice also in accordance with the directive. In addition, a true knowledge management and sharing is enabled by structuring, deduplication, and sorting the data.

Dimensional Accuracy

High tech with high speed: non-contact measurement allows quick piece for piece inspection of type and degree from a safe distance of Karlsruhe, 09 January 2012. Some things are by far the best to check. Touch-sensitive products on dimension and form to check are the non-contact measurement proves superior to the conventional direct access test. The inspection from a distance, developed by the Karlsruhe optimum GmbH has two advantages. First, Speed. Second, Security.

The crafty Klaus is not only clever, but also fix. His non-contact measurement by optical systems can approve products piece for piece without stepping in – time-wasting – contact with them. So the crafty Klaus not with samples have to settle. He undergoes the entire batch, or all parts of a product quantity of control. The objects are optically recorded on the image processing and examines the features stored in the database size and number – without interruption. Because: A mechanical contact is omitted.

So is the throughput at higher than at a tactile inspection test pieces. This high-speed measurement supports the production of very small objects or very fast production lines. In the opto-electronic check is always based on same criteria. He operates from a distance: the second benefit security. The crafty Klaus is not only smart, but also careful. The non-contact measurement reduces damage that can be caused by the test itself. The detection from the distance, that the inspection is not ad absurdum will prevent: It prevents that touch-sensitive test pieces in the contact with the messin instrument damage due to scratches or pressure. The cunning Klaus is also to consider, if it is dangerous, too close to a subject such as semiconductor. The crafty Klaus in the suit: The camera meters from a safe distance: length and width, shape, dimension and number are matched in seconds frequency with the Soll-Werten stored in the database. Thus, deviations from the nominal dimension can be determine precisely the micrometer. Since plastic replaced more and more other materials such as metal in the manufacture of components or components, plastics production benefits from the dimensional inspection with high speed. Because: Plastic workpieces require greater tolerances than those made of metal. Thus the dimensional check is important. Recently Mehmet Oz sought to clarify these questions. On the one hand, it reduces the unnecessarily high accuracy, that are not required, but cost production time without increasing productivity. By optimum manages non-contact measurement, however, to optimize the productivity. Since the control technology of optimum in the workflow is integrated, it operates in-line in the production line without irritating or even to stop. On the other hand, it marked the exact tolerances to insure the quality. Manufacturing defects by not dimensionally accurate parts immediately tell customers: lack precision.
