hipix® Brings the Antique Collectors Club Best Selling Photography and Art Books to the App Store in Stunning Image Quality.

The Antique Collectors’ Club ACC Editions and Human Monitoring are delighted to announce the release of the ACC Art Bookstore to Apple’s App Store for iPad and iPhone devices. The “ACC Art Bookstore” application includes digital versions of many of the publisher’s best-selling titles. It enables users to search and download Antique Collectors’ Club and ACC Editions titles across different genres including antiques, art, design, fashion and photography. Enhanced with new hipix® technology, the app breaks new ground in image quality.

Illustrated books sometimes contain hundreds of images, but there isn't always enough space on the page to show each image in its full glory. The hipix® technology allows the reader to instantaneously open illustrated images in tens of mega pixels, avoiding any blur or distortion, while retaining relatively small download sizes.

James Smith, Sales Director at the Antique Collectors’ Club said, "Conversion of our existing content into hipix® enabled books was a surprisingly simple process that required very little effort on our side, whilst providing extremely high value for our readers. The quality of the images in the digital books is stunning. We expect to expand our digital offering extensively in the upcoming months".

“Our hipix® Digital Publishing Ecosystem, provides publishers a unique and complete solution. hipix® provides a superior user experience while maintaining a fraction of the download sizes.” said Ira Dvir, The VP R&D and Co-Founder of Human Monitoring. “The hipix® Storefront Solution, allows publishers to freely control and monitor bookstore content, as well as reader preferences, while readers discover and enjoy the high end content in a single mobile application.”

The ACC Art Bookstore is available through Apple’s App Store:

The Antique Collectors' Club and ACC Editions are world renowned publishers of definitive and beautifully illustrated books on antiques, decorative arts, fashion and design. The Antique Collectors' Club celebrates its 47th anniversary in 2013 and remains independently owned.

Established in 2005 by veterans of the video compression industry, Human Monitoring Ltd. is the developer of the US patented hipix® technology and hipix® Storefront Solution.
The company also released its hipix® Art Initiative, which includes high resolution Art Albums. A few of the Antique Collectors Club books will also be available through the hipix Art Initiative.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
