Maxell Professional Adds Camera Accessories to Product Portfolio
- Specialized Connectors and Power Solutions Meet the Needs of Broadcast and Video Professionals -
WOODLAND PARK, N.J., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognized as a storage and backup media technology leader, Maxell Professional Media is excited to announce the addition of new professional camera accessories to its current product portfolio. Built with the commitment to high quality and durability, the products mark Maxell's entry into the professional camera accessories market.
"Our decision to venture into the camera accessories segment was an organic one," said Patricia Byrne, senior marketing manager for Maxell. "Being a data storage and backup media leader for decades has enabled us to develop an intimate understanding of the needs of broadcast and video professionals. Our focus remains on providing our customers with affordable, reliable, high-quality professional tools that help them do their jobs the best they can. Our new camera accessories were developed with that goal in mind."
Power Shoe Adapters
Maxell's Power Shoe Adapters were developed to maximize the potential of the camera shoe mount. The 3-Way Power Shoe Adapter (HS-D) is the entry level offering, featuring three cold shoe mounts. When mounted, the HS-D will allow the camera operator flexibility to use multiple additional camera accessories, such as radio mics, wireless receivers, on-camera lights, etc.
The HSBM-12W and the HSBM-36W are the mid-range and high end offerings in the Power Shoe lineup. Similar to the HS-D, the HSBM 12W has three additional cold shoe mounts, but has the added feature of an NP-F type battery mount, one power tape compatible input, and one hirose input. The HSBM-36W has three additional cold shoe mounts as well, and provides top-end power via a BP-U type battery mount, one power tap compatible input, and one hirose input. Both provide a dedicated source to power hungry on-camera devices.
All of Maxell's Power Shoe Adapters mount to any and all cameras with a cold/hot shoe.
Maxell's Shoe Clamp (HS-C) is a single cold shoe adapter designed to conveniently connect to the handle of most cameras, and/or a camera rig. With a locking clip, the lightweight shoe clamp allows the user to mount an additional piece of on-board hardware simply by clipping to the handle of their camera or rig. The Shoe Clamp features a super lock tight clamping mechanism and heavy foam inner ring to fit most camera handles/rigs.
Specs for the Power Shoe Adapters and Shoe Clamp can be found here.
The 4-way Power Connector (PC-MF4) provides one male power tap compatible connector to four female power tap compatible receptors, allowing the user to run additional hardware off a single battery connection. The Male/Female Power Connector (PC-MF) is a single male-to-female combined and fully customizable power tap compatible power connector which, once plugged into a device and powering the equipment it's been wired to, provides another female socket.
USB Charge Adapter
Armed with a power tap (male) compatible connector on one end, and a 2 amp USB connector on the other, the USB Charge Adapter (SP-PCUSB) allows the user to re-charge any smart device off of their camera battery, therefore making the camera a back-up power source. The USB charge adapter cable will recharge a smartphone, tablet or other smart device, making it an essential tool for anyone shooting in remote locations where the only available power source is the camera battery.
Full product information for the Power Connectors and USB Charge Adapter can be found here.
Maxell Corporation of America, a technology and marketing leader, is a full line manufacturer of digital media products for professional, data storage and consumer markets. Maxell has been recognized for over forty years for delivering a comprehensive line of digital tape and disc-based recording media products.

4000+ Reasons Why Travelers Will Love their Mobile Devices Even More This Year - Marriott Expands Mobile Check-in and Checkout Services
BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its global mobile strategy, Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAR) is announcing a significant expansion of the company's popular mobile check-in and checkout feature. Now, ten additional brands - The Ritz-Carlton, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Renaissance Hotels, Autograph Collection, Courtyard, SpringHill Suites, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites and Marriott Executive Apartments* - are joining the nearly 500 properties of the company's flagship Marriott Hotels brand in providing mobile check-in and checkout to guests. With these latest additions, these services are immediately available at 1,200 properties worldwide, and will be live at more than 4,000 hotels worldwide by year-end.
Marriott is laser-focused on delivering the mobile services travelers told the company that they want most and making these services as widely available as possible. The company is rapidly introducing mobile services that improve the travel experience by giving guests added convenience and greater choice, while giving hotel staff the opportunity to deliver an even higher level of service. When it comes to fulfillment, the company's hotels have achieved a near perfect success rate in executing a half-million mobile check-ins to date, leading to nine out ten guests saying they will use it again.
With the Marriott Mobile app, check-in and checkout is simpler. Marriott Rewards members receive a push notification on their Apple iPhones or Android devices after 4 pm on the day before their arrival alerting them they can check-in. Then they receive an automatic notification when their room is ready. Communicating in advance means the hotel is prepared for their arrival. Because payment information is stored within members profiles, guests simply walk up to the expedited mobile check-in desk where their pre-programmed key card will be waiting for them.
At the end of their stays, guests receive a push notification alerting them that mobile checkout is available. Upon completion, guests will then be prompted to provide an email address where their bill should be sent, allowing them to confidently bypass the front desk. Mobile check-in and checkout are available in five languages: English, French, Spanish, German and Mandarin.
Leading with its flagship Marriott Hotels brand, the company continues innovating in the mobile space. The brand now offers mobile service requests in fifteen markets in North America, where hotels are serving as "mobile incubator" laboratories for the future. For example, guests at these hotels can use a drop down menu of the most typical service requests, such as extra towels and pillows, or chat directly with hotel staff using a mobile app. The company will offer these and other mobile services to its Marriott Rewards members at the Marriott Hotels brand beginning early next year.
"You cannot separate the mobile experience from the personal interaction between guests and our hotel associates. When executed flawlessly and consistently, they complement each other and enhance the overall experience," said George Corbin, senior vice president, Digital. "In our testing of mobile service requests so far, 86 percent of guests who used the feature have chosen to chat directly with hotel associates, illustrating how much guests appreciate the personal interaction using their mobile devices, and nearly nine out of ten guests gave the experience a very high positive rating."
Recently, the company's award-winning Marriott Rewards became first major hotel loyalty program to offer geo-targeted, mobile offers using beacon technology. Participating hotels send members, who opt-in, push notifications on their mobile devices as they pass by "hot spots" within the property. Called LocalPerks, offers are tailored to the property, ranging from food and beverage to spa to golf. Future plans for LocalPerks include Marriott Rewards' offers available locally in the neighborhoods surrounding participating hotels.
*Mobile check-in and checkout is available at all Marriott Hotels, JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Renaissance Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments and at a select but increasing number of Ritz-Carlton, Autograph Collection, Courtyard, SpringHill Suites, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Residence Inn and TownePlace Suites properties.
Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR) is a global leading lodging company based in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, over 4,000 properties and 690,000 rooms in 79 countries and territories and reported revenues of nearly $13 billion in fiscal year 2013. For more than 80 years, the company has been committed to guest satisfaction. Marriott has been consistently recognized as a top employer and for its superior business ethics. The company also manages the award-winning guest loyalty program, Marriott RewardsÂ® and The Ritz-Carlton RewardsÂ® program, which together surpass 45 million members.

To take a bite and try out Angry Shark Simulator, please navigate to the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tapinator.angry.sharksimulator3D.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile Spy, the most advanced monitoring software for mobile devices, announced today the launch of Mobile Spy Version 7.0. The newest and most innovative version of the software now makes it easier than ever for parents to protect their children and for employers to safeguard their companies.
Mobile Spy silently monitors and records all smartphone activities such as SMS text messaging, call information, contacts, videos, photographs, browsing history, and much more. The newest version now features a brand new website interface and user-friendly control panel that records all messages sent and received in a multitude of popular messaging applications such as KIK, Viber, Skype, Line, Fring, ChatOn, and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM). Additional new capabilities also include recording multi-media messages (MMS), voice memos, and transferred Dropbox files for full-coverage, accurate monitoring.
"We are thrilled to announce that the new generation of Mobile Spy fills a void that both employers and parents alike would not possibly be able to fill themselves," said James Johns, CEO of Retina-X Studios. "Mobile Spy v7.0 serves as a single resource for both parties to monitor the mobile activity of children and employees without constant surveillance or supervision, thereby protecting the child's innocence and the employer's assets."
The latest and most innovative version of Mobile Spy comes from its parent company, Retina-X StudiosÂ®, a world leader in mobile phone, computer, and network tracking.

Using the new Mobile Spy, conscientious employers can ensure corporate security and know their workforce is productive. Employers can track phones to ensure company devices are not being used for personal affairs through GPS software that pinpoints their location on a map that is visible from the Mobile Spy user's remote location. The same technology can be used by parents to locate a child and rest assured their children are protected from strangers and potential dangers wherever they go.
Besides remotely capturing photos, videos, and monitoring emails and other messaging with its sophisticated tracking software, Mobile Spy allows phone logs to be reviewed live from any web browser through its secure online control panel. The professional software system functions silently, while providing a full level of online monitoring and protection. Mobile Spy also has the capability to switch on a stealth phone camera and voice recorder to allow everything that is going on to be seen and heard from a remote location.

Protect Your Bubble Now Offers a Single Protection Plan For Multiple Mobile Devices, Electronics and Appliances
It's the One Plan that Protects the Things That Matter Most Under Your Roof, No Matter What Brands
ATLANTA, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Protect Your Bubble, a specialty protection brand, today announced a new type of coverage - an all-in-one plan that covers multiple devices, electronics and appliances. The company's new protection plan covers all the things that customers can't live without, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, TVs, appliances and other items like cameras and gaming gear. Customers choose which devices to cover, no matter where they were purchased. The more devices customers cover, the more they save.
"Today, the average household contains more than five electronic devices, and we all depend on our devices more than ever," said Stacey Vogler, Managing Director of Protect Your Bubble USA. "Our research shows that people want coverage for the devices they can't live without, but they find the store policy options confusing because they buy devices from different brands at different times. We make multi-device coverage simple and affordable with one plan."
Protect Your Bubble's new multi-device coverage is designed around the customer, not the device. Customers have one account, policy and bill. The flexible new policy option allows them to add or drop coverage on individual devices as their needs change. The monthly charge to cover each mobile phone, tablet, laptop or PC starts at just $5.99; TV coverage is available from between $5.99 and $9.99, and appliance protection is only $3.99.
Protection plans can also include wireless wearables like Google Glass, smartwatches and fitness bands. Other peripherals such as headphones, speakers and gaming systems are options consumers can select when bundling their electronic devices under this new offering. New options will be added as products continue to evolve for the purpose of future-proofing consumer gear.
The more devices customers cover, the more they save. For example, it costs $5.99 a month to insure a family's first iPhone 5S, but then they can add another iPhone 5S for $4.99 and a third iPhone 5S for only $3.99. For a family of four, to cover 4 iPhones would cost $19/month. For a single individual to cover a smartphone, laptop and refrigerator, the total cost could be as low as $13/month.
With the new protection plans, customers don't have to worry about mechanical breakdowns after the manufacturer's warranty expires, and they're covered for accidental damage to their devices, including spills, drops and cracked screens, as well as damage caused by power surges and lightning strikes.
Protection plans are available for devices within three years of purchase, and devices are eligible for coverage until they are three years old. The deductible for smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs and TVs is just $49, and there is no deductible at all on appliance coverage. Filing a claim is simple online or over the phone, and Protect Your Bubble makes sure customers get a replacement device or reimbursement to purchase a new one fast - within one or two business days for a smartphone and as quickly as five days for laptop or PC repair.
"At Protect Your Bubble, we're committed to improving life for modern consumers," Vogler noted. "This new coverage option is an extension of that commitment. We don't just sell policies - we build relationships with our customers, so it makes sense to design a policy around them instead of centering coverage on the device. This customer-centered approach will become even more important as the Internet of Things evolves and more customers integrate technology from multiple brands into their lives and homes."

LeapBand(TM), LeapFrog's New Wearable Activity Tracker For Children, Now Available
Made just for kids, LeapBand(TM) combines fun and creative activity challenges with personalized virtual pet play to help children get more active and learn about healthy choices.
EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:LF), the leader in educational entertainment, today announced that their latest innovation, LeapBand(TM), is now available for sale online and at major retail locations across the U.S. LeapBand, a wearable activity tracker designed just for children, encourages active play and healthy habits through nurturing a child's very own personalized virtual pet.
Inspired by the Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative to help children develop healthy habits and lead more active lives, the LeapBand activity tracker gets kids moving with fun activity challenges and healthy living tips combined with incredibly engaging virtual pet play, all of which encourages them to be more physically active and make healthier choices.
"It is staggering that many of the children in the U.S. do not get enough daily exercise particularly when there is such a strong correlation between physical activity and academic success," said John Barbour, chief executive officer at LeapFrog. "To help meet this essential need in a playful and engaging way, we developed LeapBand as an innovative and creative way to get kids up and active and help them develop healthy habits that will positively impact their health and wellness. Our number one goal at LeapFrog is to help children reach their potential, and LeapBand does this by providing a fun and exciting new way to learn while having active fun."
Fit Made Fun!
The LeapBand tracker gets kids up and active by tracking physical movements, so the more active a child is, the more points they earn with their virtual pet. The activity tracker comes with eight different customizable pets from LeapFrog's popular Pet Pals franchise - a cat, dog, dragon, monkey, panda, penguin, robot and unicorn - which can be customized by color and name. With their very own virtual pal, children can play 10 preloaded activity challenges with access to 40 additional free challenges. As they move and earn points, kids can unlock additional levels of play and each of the additional eight pets plus earn virtual toys for each of them. Kids will stay engaged and learning with mini-games including Pet Boogie, Pet Chef and Pet Salon and have fun completing a variety of activities including "Walk like a crab" and "Pop like popcorn" whether they are at home or on the go. LeapBand activity challenges are designed to keep kids active by tapping into their own individual movements without any required equipment.
LeapBand was designed with children in mind, and high-tech features include a built-in accelerometer, a high-resolution color screen, "Watch Mode" for quiet time, a rechargeable battery and water-resistant design, making it the ultimate activity wearable for kids.
Extend the Fun
In addition to the active play on LeapBand, the fun is extended to include a free companion app called the Petathlon(TM) Games. In the Petathlon Games, kids can compete as any of the virtual pets in six entertaining mini-games like archery, surfing and bobsledding to win extras including medals and new tracksuits for their virtual pet. The Petathlon Games app is available for download to a child's LeapPad(TM)3, LeapPad(TM) UltraXDi, or an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet.*
The LeapBand activity tracker (MSRP $39.99, for children 4 to 7 years old) is now available in green, pink and blue online and at major retail locations. Additional activities and challenges are free and available for download via LeapFrog Connect for LeapBand. For more information, visit http://www.leapfrog.com/leapband.
