Effortlessly Extend Battery Life

No comments:



St. Clair Software today is pleased to announce an update to App Tamer, its Macintosh utility that automatically pauses applications to improve battery life and reduce CPU usage. Version 1.0.4 addresses two problems that were uncovered after the release of App Tamer 1.0.3 last week.

App Tamer 1.0.4 corrects two issues discovered in the recently released 1.0.3 update:
* A problem that could cause its CPU history graphs to stop updating.
* An error in the license engine that could make some licenses fail to validate.

Pricing and Availability:
App Tamer 1.0.4 is a free update for registered users. It is $14.95 (USD) for Mac users who have not purchased it yet. Please see the St. Clair Software web site for a full change log and additional feature information.

FDA Approves iOS App for Remote Diagnostic Imaging

No comments:



A mobile radiology application has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration which allows physicians to view medical images on the iPhone and iPad.

The application is the first cleared by the FDA for viewing images and making medical diagnoses based on computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear medicine technology, such as positron emission tomography (PET). It is not intended to replace full workstations and is indicated for use only when there is no access to a workstation.

"This important mobile technology provides physicians with the ability to immediately view images and make diagnoses without having to be back at the workstation or wait for film," said William Maisel, M.D., M.P.H., chief scientist and deputy director for science in the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health.

Radiology images taken in the hospital or physician's office are compressed for secure network transfer then sent to the appropriate portable wireless device via software called Mobile MIM. Mobile MIM, manufactured by Cleveland-based MIM Software Inc., allows the physician to measure distance on the image and image intensity values and display measurement lines, annotations and regions of interest.

In its evaluation, the FDA reviewed performance test results on various portable devices. These tests measured luminance, image quality (resolution), and noise in accordance with international standards and guidelines. The FDA also reviewed results from demonstration studies with qualified radiologists under different lighting conditions. All participants agreed that the device was sufficient for diagnostic image interpretation under the recommended lighting conditions.

The display performance of mobile devices can experience significant variations in luminance levels even between mobile devices of the same model. The Mobile MIM application includes sufficient labeling and safety features to mitigate the risk of poor image display due to improper screen luminance or lighting conditions. The device includes an interactive contrast test in which a small part of the screen is a slightly different shade than the rest of the screen. If the physician can identify and tap this portion of the screen, then the lighting conditions are not interfering with the physician's ability to discern subtle differences in contrast. In addition, a safety guide is included within the application.

Mobile MIM will be available in the US Apple App Store next week. It is already available in numerous other markets.

Synchronize QuickTime Across Many Displays

No comments:



The National Software Laboratory has announced the immediate availability of ArraySync, an innovative new tool for synchronizing QuickTime playback on multiple displays attached to one computer, or across a local area network. ArraySync allows you to easily create stunning video walls and multi-screen demonstrations without specialized hardware.

ArraySync makes it easy to build a multi-screen video presentation. Whether you have Macs, PCs or both, ArraySync plays nice with all your hardware. Use a Mac server to control PC clients, or a PC server to control Mac clients, or mix and match Macs and PCs in any combination you can imagine. ArraySync's underlying protocol is platform independent.

Unlike dedicated hardware solutions, ArraySync is completely scalable, and can run entirely on hardware you already own. Synchronize two displays or a hundred! ArraySync's performance is limited only by the capabilities of your computers and your network.

Mirror one video across your network, or combine displays to build a video wall and span one video across it. Use our companion utility ArrayShaker to break up your media into multiple segments and distribute them to ArraySync Clients powering your displays. Mac users also have the option to span videos directly without preprocessing with ArrayShaker.

Because ArraySync is completely software-based, the configuration possibilities are endless. Rather than relying on infleixble hardware-based systems, you're free to design the ultimate display setup using varying sizes and placements of screens. Enjoy the flexibility to express your ideas through unique custom displays unhindered by dedicated hardware.

To compliment ArraySync, The National Software Laboratory is also announcing ArrayShaker, a utility for split QuickTime videos into segments. ArrayShaker is perfect for optimizing the performance of your ArraySync projects. Select a QuickTime video to process, configure the number of rows and columns you desire, and press export. Distribute the resulting video segments to your ArraySync clients and go!

Pricing and Availability:
ArraySync 1.0 for Mac OS X and Windows is immediately available for purchase and download from NaSoLab's website for $29.99 (USD). ArraySync Client 1.0 for Mac OS X and Windows is immediately available for free from NaSoLab's website. ArraySync and ArraySync Client for the Mac App Store are pending Apple's approval. ArrayShaker 1.0.1 for Mac OS X is immediately available for purchase from the Mac App Store. ArrayShaker for Windows and Mac OS X will be available for purchase directly from NaSoLab's website in late February.
