New NanoMarkets Report, “A Capacity and Opportunity Analysis of OLED Lighting"

The new NanoMarkets report also includes an eight-year forecast of OLED lighting manufacturing capacity broken out by individual manufacturer and whether the facilities will use solution processing or more conventional fabrication.

Glen Allen, Virginia, September 29, 2011 - NanoMarkets, the leading provider of market research and analysis of the emerging OLED lighting space, has published the latest report titled, A Capacity and Opportunity Analysis of OLED Lighting Manufacturing” that provides detailed insight and analysis of the manufacturing strategies of major OLED lighting suppliers and an assessment of how these firms have been progressing with their manufacturing plans so far. The report also includes an eight-year forecast of OLED lighting manufacturing capacity broken out by individual manufacturer and whether the facilities will use solution processing or more conventional fabrication. An assessment of necessary investment levels for the manufacturing infrastructure is also part of this new report.


Details about this and other related reports are available at http://www.nanomarkets.net/oled_lighting

NanoMarkets concludes that, based on current plans, around seven million square meters of production capacity will be in place for OLED lighting by 2016. However, NanoMarkets also warns that in today’s economic conditions, many of the leading firms promising to bring OLED lighting to market may retreat from their announced plans significantly. With this in mind, this report also includes a projection of the OLED lighting capacity under a “worst case” scenario.

In addition to forecasts and an appraisal of the manufacturing plans of the leading OLED lighting makers, this report provides a granular discussion of the state-of-the-art in OLED lighting fabrication technology, examining what has been achieved at leading projects and pilot plants. And it profiles the activities of manufacturing equipment firms who have targeted the OLED lighting space for special consideration.

Among the firms covered in this report are: Aixtron, Applied Materials, AUO, Cannon Anelva, DuPont, GE, Kaneka, Kateeva, Konica Minolta, LG Chem, Lumiotec, Mitsubishi, Ledon, Moser Baer, NEC, Osram, Panasonic, Philips, Pioneer, PolyPhotonix, Rohm, Samsung, Sunic, Tokki, UDC, Ulvac, Veeco, and Visionox.

David A. Gibb Launches Book Website for Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams

In advance of the book launch for Camouflaged Killer, to be published in the U.S. by Berkley Books and distributed in Canada by Penguin Group on October 4, 2011

Toronto, ON, September 29, 2011 - (Straight Line PR) – David A. Gibb Launches Book Website for Camouflaged Killer: The Shocking Double Life of Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams

In advance of the book launch for Camouflaged Killer, to be published in the U.S. by Berkley Books and distributed in Canada by Penguin Group on October 4, 2011, author David A. Gibb has unveiled a multi-page website devoted to the 372-page book that includes an interactive feature to address concerns about women’s safety.

The website (www.camouflagedkiller.com) provides comprehensive information on the soon-to-be-released book, introduces the author, and details the book’s genesis.

Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International, will answer questions pertaining to personal safety and defense issues on the site’s Ask the Expert page (under Safety Tips).

Canadian Air Force Colonel Russell Williams once commanded the largest air force base in the country, and was one of the most respected and trusted soldiers in the military. Never forgetting a name, face, or the birthdays of those who worked under him, he was the poster boy of the Canadian military, and the speed at which he rose through the ranks reflected this. No one had the slightest clue that behind this fa├žade a sexual sadist was quickly escalating from breaking and entering to sexually deviant acts of rape and murder.

In Camouflaged Killer, Gibb, a career investigator, presents new information about the man who personally piloted dignitaries, prime ministers, and members of the British royal family. Offering a fresh perspective, with extensive details on Williams’s background and the crimes that led to his capture, confession, and conviction, Gibb delves deep into the psychology behind the serial killer. Thoroughly researched, and with the support of well-respected psychologists, profilers, and forensic investigators, Camouflaged Killer documents the disturbing account of how one of Canada’s highest-ranking military officers – a seemingly normal and responsible man – became one of the country’s most notorious criminals.

Film rights to the book have already been acquired by Richard Lowry Productions Inc. of Montreal. Lowry is best known for his Emmy-nominated mini-series, To Catch a Killer, which starred Brian Dennehy as serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Development on the screen adaptation is set to begin immediately with production expected to follow next year.

Brac Systems Inc. Sells Blackwater Treatment System to a Residential Complex Developer in Mexico

Brac Systems Inc. is delighted to announce the sale of its Black Water Treatment Systems, the BWTS, to a residential complex developer in San Miguel de Allende for a six hundred home project.

Montreal, Quebec, Canada, September 27, 2011 - Brac Systems Inc. (BAAD - OPEN MARKET - Frankfurt Stock Exchange) - Brac Systems Inc. announces the sale of blackwater treatments systems to a residential complex developer, Guanajuato, Mexico.

Brac Systems Inc. is delighted to announce the sale of its Black Water Treatment Systems, the BWTS, to a residential complex developer in San Miguel de Allende for a six hundred home project. Brac Systems would like to congratulate Luis Miguel of Rig Supplies, (http://rigsupplies.com.mx) the Brac Systems Mexican distributor for their superb efforts in securing this large application of the blackwater treatment system in Mexico. "Rig Supplies is extremely pleased to have been apart of this large project" said Mr. Tostado. ?These systems will aid the safe and reliable treatment of domestic waste and in doing so will protect not only the environment but the health of the local people.

The initial phase of the project will involve a blackwater treatment system to be set-up for the newly constructed offices of the complex. This will allow the utilization, demonstration and effectiveness of the system while construction of the complex continues. The BWTS will process waste water from up to six hundred homes once completed in the city of San Miguel de Allende. The complex owners will benefit from the real time monitoring of the system processes from any location as a result of the BWTS connection to the internet.

The project has been designed and developed to both retain and protect the environment while protecting the health and sanitation of the local population. The BWTS system is highly versatile and adaptable to meet the requirements of projects such as this one in Guanajuato. ?The system is technologically advanced yet provides the ability for relatively inexpensive adaptation to older type systems and plumbing configurations. We already see a huge potential in this region and with the positive feedback we have received to expect the system to be very successful in Mexico? said Mr. Tostado.

The BWTS is the excellent result of a determined and conscientious endeavour from Brac Systems Inc. team in design, research, development and testing. The system is generating considerable interest and intrigue for a low, system and operational cost delivering high performance results.

2012 Global State of Information Security Survey® Released – Global Leaders Realizing the Importance of Cyber Security on the Cloud

The Global State of Information Security Survey explores critical factors of the effectiveness of IT and cloud storage security.

Penticton, British Columbia/Framingham, Mass, September 28, 2011 - According to the survey, 72 percent of respondents polled in the Global State of Information Security Survey (over 9600 in 138 countries), feel confident in their organizations’ IT security. This is a marked decline over years passed and given the onslaught of corporate security breaches and the recent media attention it’s received, this comes as no surprise.

According to Mark Lobel with PwC’s Advisory practice, "Companies now have greater insights than ever before into the landscape of cyber crime and other security events - and they're translating this information into investments specifically focused on three areas: prevention, detection and operational web-related technologies."

The survey indicates that cloud computing, although on the rise, is more complicated than ever. Polling indicates that 40% of those surveyed have turned to cloud storage as a part of their business plan. “The largest perceived risk is the uncertain ability to enforce provider security policies.”

With corporations all over the globe shining the spotlight and putting more money and resources toward information security, individuals should take note and begin to take cloud storage security into their own hands.

theLocBox, a new utility conceived by Doug Oucharek and Stephen Joyce, has been designed with this user in mind, no longer willing to place the security of their private documents in the hands of the cloud storage provider. theLocBox places an additional layer of user generated, military grade security between the user and the cloud storage facility, essentially placing the keys to their secure data in the hands of the user.

According to Oucharek, “the current security environment dictated a need for theLocBox. More individuals, small businesses and corporations are turning to cloud storage than ever – it’s cost effective. But you need to feel safe that your hard earned work product is secure. Enter theLocBox.”

Adds Joyce, “Online global collaboration is the new way to do business. We work in a virtual space with individuals from all over the world, which brings a whole new level to what we can accomplish. But given this global push, we need a secure virtual workplace.”
