The Company, a world leader in rugged, high-resolution head mounted display (HMD) and OEM optoelectronic module manufacturing, was acquired from Vuzix Corporation (TSX-V: VZX, OTC BB: VUZI) on June 15, 2012.

The Tac-Eye AR displays are see-through AR-enabled binocular or monocular systems that offer a 40 degree field of view for use in a wide variety of industrial, medical, commercial, and defense applications. Six15’s patented optical see-through system allows users to view the real world while simultaneously viewing relevant computer generated information, graphics and alerts. The Tac-Eye AR specifications deliver a solution far superior to any product available on the market today.

As part of this new offering, Six15 Technologies has partnered with APX Labs to provide the core software solutions that drive the augmented reality environment. APX Labs’ truAR software manages the user experience and interaction with the Tac-Eye, connects the device in real-time to other users and systems, and manages how custom applications run on the Tac-Eye AR. Upcoming software developer kits will allow rapid adoption of the technology by developers everywhere.

“Smart Glasses enable people to get work done better, faster, cheaper and safer. These hands-free real-time mobile applications are incredibly powerful and applicable to almost every enterprise. Just a year ago, none of this was possible, but breakthroughs in the hardware that Six15 is building combined with our software make it real today,” said Brian Ballard, CEO of APX Labs. “We are incredibly excited about the road ahead and working with Six15 to bring Smart Glasses to market.”

“As Six15 Technologies continues to expand into commercial and medical markets, we are focused on delivering solutions immediately. Our new see-through HMD solution leverages technology that is already developed, tested, and proven in the field with our defense customers”, said CEO Rich Ryan.

“To increase our speed to market, we look to those companies who we feel are at the leading edge in their field and seek to partner with them. APX Labs is clearly one such company. This partnership enables us to integrate a superior software solution with our proven display technology in a manner that will deliver immediate solutions to customers in the commercial, medical, and defense sectors,” added Ryan.

The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.

Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
