‫أوبو تمنح سلسلة رينو7 مظهراً جذّاباً وتجربة حيوية بفضل تقنية التصميم متعددة الطبقات

  • سلسلة هواتف رينو7 الجديدة تتضمّن ثلاثة طرازات تدعم الاتصال بشبكة الجيل الخامس 5G ، وجميعها مزودة بميزات تصوير البورتريه المميّزة وتقنيات أخرى رائدة
  • تأتي السلسلة بنظام كاميرا بورتريه رائد وإعداد قوي لالتقاط محتوى استثنائي وتجربة اتصال فائق بشبكة 5G
  • سلسلة هواتف رينو7 الجديدة متاحة الآن عبر مواقع التجارة الإلكترونية ومتاجر البيع بالتجزئة

دبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة, 9 يونيو / حزيران 2022 /PRNewswire/ — باعتبار أن الهواتف الذكية تعزز من حرية إبداع الشباب وتمنحهم مساحة كبيرة للتعبير عن أنفسهم من خلال تصميم الهاتف نفسه أو الإمكانيات التي يقدمها لهم، تعمل أوبو دائماً على تحديث شكل ومظهر وتصميم هواتف سلسلة رينو باستمرار مع كل جيل يتم إطلاقه، وتقدم تجربة جديدة ومختلفة تماماً في كل مرة بفضل تطوير تقنية “رينو جلو Reno Glow ” الحصرية من أوبو. مع أحدث سلسلة لديها، تواصل أوبوتصميم هواتفها بشخصية وروح رينو الأيقونية مع تقديم تصميم ثوري يخطف الأنظار ويوفر تجربة لمس غاية في الأناقة والسلاسة.

OPPO Brings to Life Multi-layer Design and Experiences to the Reno7 Series

 صميم الهاتف مُعزز بلمسات أوبو الرائعة من خلال تقنية التصوير المباشر بأشعة الليزر LDI
مستلهمين إبداعهم من التصاميم الهندسية الموجودة في الطبيعية مثل البلورات ورقاقات الثلج، قام مهندسو ومصممو أوبو بتحسين تقنية رينو جلو تدريجياً على ثلاثة مراحل متتالية من البحث والتطوير. مع أحدث إصدار من هذه التقنية المذهلة، تستخدم أوبو عملية النقش عن طريق الأحماض الكيميائية لإنتاج مادة من الزجاج المُصنفر توفر إحساساً ناعماً عند اللمس مع حماية أشكال البلورات والثلج بطبقة شفافة على الغلاف الخلفي للهاتف.

لم يكن الإصرار على انتقاء وتنفيذ نفس المفهوم الجمالي خلال عملية إنتاج تجربة لمس جديدة تماماً في سلسلة أوبو رينو مهمةً سهلةً على الإطلاق، إذ كان على مصممي ومهندسي أوبو تجاوز حدود عمليات التصنيع الحالية واستكشاف تقنيات مختلفة بالكامل واتخاذ مسارات تصميمية جريئة في كل مرحلة من مراحل تطوير سلسلة رينو7 لإضفاء الحيوية على الشكل النهائي للهواتف.

ولكن، وما هي نتيجة عمليات البحث الطويلة ومراحل التطوير الشاقة هذه؟ تفتخر أوبو بعملية تصنيع استثنائية ومبتكرة تسمى تقنية التصوير المباشر بأشعة الليزر (LDI). تضيف هذه التقنية بُعداً جديداً من الجمال والتعقيد إلى التأثر البصري من تقنية رينو جلوOPPO Glow ، مما توفّر مساحة أكبر للخيال وإعادة تفسير مفهوم التصميم المستوحى من الطبيعة لسلسلة رينو بمظهر وإحساس أكثر سحراً.

تعد تقنية LDI أساسيةً في تصنيع أشباه الموصلات عالية الدقة، وبإدخالها في الصناعة، قامت أوبو -من خلال تطبيق هذه التقنية- بنقش صورة مسارات النجوم وخلقت نمطاً فنياً يتكون من 1.2 مليون نقطة مع خطوط دقيقة بحجم 20 ميكرون فقط. ثم يتم نقل الصورة بدقة على الغلاف الخلفي لهاتف أوبو رينو7 5G، والذي يمنح كل من يراه صورة وهمية وإحساساً حيوياً بنجوم تسافر عبر الفضاء الفسيح.

تعتبر هذه هي المرة الأولى التي يتم تطبيق تقنية LDI على التصميم الخارجي لهاتف محمول، كما إنها أول مرّة التي تستخدم فيها أوبو تقنية النقش بالليزر لإجراء معالجة دقيقة إضافية أعلى طبقة أوبو جلو. ومن خلال دمج كل هذه التقنيات المبتكرة مثل LDI مع تقنية أوبو للطلاء بالطبقات المزدوجة، منحت أوبو مستخدمي هواتف سلسلة رينو7 الإحساس بأنهم يمتلكون نجوم الفضاء الساحرة في راحة أيديهم.

تصميم الهاتف نحيف وخفيف الوزن في جميع الأوقات
منذ أول هاتف تم إطلاقه ضمن سلسلة رينو من أوبو، كان التصميم النحيف وخفيف الوزن للسلسلة هو العمود الفقري لمفهوم التصميم وجزءاً أساسياً من جاذبيتها، وهو اتجاه لا تزال أحدث سلسلة من رينو7 تسلكه.

حتى مع سعة البطارية الكبيرة التي تبلغ 4500 مللي أمبير في الساعة، تم الحفاظ على حجم ووزن هاتف رينو7 5G عند الحد الأدنى، ليبلغ سُمك الهاتف حوالي 7.81 مم محققاً التوازن المثالي بين عمر البطارية الطويل وميزة الراحة لمن يستخدمون هواتفهم باستمرار على مدار اليوم.

يتميز هاتف رينو7 5G بإطار مستدير الشكل مع حواف ناعمة أثناء استخدام تصميم دائري ثلاثي الأبعاد للانتقال من الجزء الأمامي إلى الجزء الخلفي للهاتف من أجل ملاءمة أفضل وراحة أكثر لليد. وبفضل تجربة انزلاق حافة الشاشة المحسّنة، يوفر الهاتف أفضل مسكة على الإطلاق.

تطوير مفهوم التصميم من خلال أبعاد جديدة
ستواصل أوبو تطوير المزيد من الابتكارات الثورية لتعزيز تصميم منتجاتها وتطويرها بما فيها سلسلة هواتف رينو الرائدة، في خطوة منها إلى استشراف المستقبل وتوقّع الفرص والتحديات القادمة. ومن خلال تقنيات التصميم المبتكرة هذه، تأمل أوبو أن توفّر للمستخدمين هواتف ذكية فائقة الأداء وفي غاية الأناقة، وذلك من أجل منحهم فرصاً أكثر للتعبير عن أنفسهم وإبراز شخصياتهم المتفردة.

لمحة عن أوبو
تأسست أوبو في عام 2004، وتعد من أبرز الأسماء الرائدة عالمياً في مجال التكنولوجيا، حيث تشتهر بتركيزها على التقنيات المبتكرة واللمسات الفنية المتميزة في التصميم.

وتهدف أوبو إلى بناء منظومة متعددة المستويات من الأجهزة الذكية، تواكب من خلالها عصر الاتصالات الذكية الذي نعيشه. وتعتبر الهواتف الذكية التي تنتجها أوبو منصةً لتقديم محفظة متنوعة من الحلول الذكية والرائدة، على مستوى الأجهزة والنظام والبرمجيات. ولتحقيق هذا الهدف، أطلقت أوبو في عام 2019 خطة على مدى ثلاثة أعوام، لاستثمار 7 مليار دولار أمريكي في مجال الأبحاث والتطوير، لابتكار تقنيات تسهم في تعزيز إمكانيات التصميم.

وتبذل أوبو جهوداً دائمةً لوضع منتجات تتميز بأعلى مستويات التطور التكنولوجي ضمن تصاميم جمالية مميزة وفريدة في متناول المستخدمين في مختلف أرجاء العالم، استناداً إلى فلسفة العلامة التي تتمحور حول الريادة والشباب والقيم الجمالية، حيث تلتزم أوبو بتحقيق هدفها في منح المستخدمين الاستثنائيين إمكانية الإحساس بجمال التكنولوجيا.

وركزت أوبو، خلال العقد الماضي، على تصنيع هواتف ذكية تتميز بإمكانيات تصوير غير مسبوقة، حيث أطلقت أول هواتفها في 2008، وأطلقت عليه اسم سمايل فون، وكان بداية انطلاقها في سعيها الدائم نحو الريادة والابتكارووجهت العلامة اهتمامها على الدوام على احتلال مركز الصدارة، وهو ما نجحت في تحقيقه عبر تقديم أول هاتف ذكي مزود بكاميرا دوارة في عام 2013، فضلاً عن إطلاق أنحف هاتف ذكي في عام 2014، كما كانت أول شركة تقدم تكنولوجيا بيريسكوب في كاميرا الموبايل، أتاحت لها تقديم خاصية التقريب خمس مرات وتطوير أو هاتف ذكي تجاري متوافق مع شبكات اتصالات الجيل الخامس في أوروبا.

وتحتل أوبو اليوم المرتبة الرابعة بين علامات الهواتف الذكية، عبر الأجهزة الذكية وواجهة المستخدم ColorOS وخدماتها الإلكترونية مثل أوبو كلاود وأوبو+.

وتقدم أوبو خدماتها ومنتجاتها في أكثر من 40 دولة، كما تدير ستة معاهد للأبحاث وخمسة مراكز للبحث والتطوير موزعة في مختلف أنحاء العالم، من سان فرانسيسكو غرباً وصولاً إلى شنجن شرقاً. كما افتتحت الشركة مركزاً دولياً للتصميم في لندن، وتلعب هذه المراكز كافة دوراً محورياً في ابتكار أحدث الحلول التقنية التي تسهم في رسم ملامح مستقبل الهواتف الذكية وقطاع الاتصالات الذكية.

لمحة عن أوبو الشرق الأوسط وأفريقيا
دخلت أوبو سوق منطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا في عام 2015، عبر تأسيس مكتب إقليمي لها في العاصمة المصرية، القاهرة. وبعد النجاح الكبير الذي حققته مبيعات الشركة خلال عامها الأول من وجودها في القاهرة، أطلقت أوبو خطط توسع طموحة في المنطقة، حيث أطلقت عملياتها في الإمارات العربية المتحدة في عام 2019. تتمتع أوبو حالياً بحضور فعلي في أكثر من 13 سوقاً في المنطقة، بما فيها مصر والجزائر وتونس والمغرب والبحرين والمملكة العربية السعودية وسلطنة عُمان والكويت وقطر والبحرين وكينيا ونيجيريا وجنوب أفريقيا وشرق المتوسط.

وسعياً لتعزيز حضورها في المنطقة وتماشياً مع استراتيجيتها لتكييف منتجاتها مع متطلبات الأسواق المحلية، زادت أوبو من استثماراتها في منطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا عبر تأسيس معمل في الجزائر في عام 2017. وأصبحت الشركة بذلك أول علامة تجارية صينية تؤسس منشأة صناعية في منطقة شمال أفريقيا. وعملت أوبو على تطوير وتحسين منتجاتها بناء على متطلبات الجمهور المستهدف وآرائه في كل منطقة، كما حرصت دوماً على تخصيص حملاتها الترويجية وفقاً للثقافة المحلية، وما يناسب فئة المستهلكين الشباب في كل دولة. كما تحرص الشركة على الدوام على العمل مع فرق محلية للتعرف بشكل أفضل على المستهلكين المحليين وتوفير خدمات على أعلى مستوى من الجودة.

وبدأت أوبو خلال العام الماضي بتعديل خط منتجاتها بما يتلاءم مع منطقة الشرق الأوسط تحديداً، حيث أطلقت هاتفها الذكي الرائد ضمن سلسلة أوبو فايند X وطرحت سلسلة هواتف أوبو رينو. وستواصل أوبو تطوير خط منتجاتها المحلية لتوفير المزيد من سلاسل الهواتف الممتازة للمستهلكين في المنطقة.

وتعمل أوبو، انطلاقاً من مكانتها كشركة عالمية رائدة في مجال الابتكار والتكنولوجيا، على اتباع أعلى معايير الاستدامة للحفاظ على البيئة لأجيال المستقبل، وسعت إلى إحداث تغييرات إيجابية عبر إطلاق مبادرات اجتماعية وإنسانية محلية، فضلاً عن الحملات الخيرية.

‫أول مريض مسجل في دراسة SELUTION SLR IDE BTK

ليبزيج9 يونيو، 2022/PRNewswire/ — تم تسجيل أول مريض في التجربة السريرية ل FDA IDE BTK (تحت الركبة) SELUTION4BTK التي تشمل SELUTION SLR™، وهو بالون سيروليموس-إيلوتينغ الجديد من MedAlliance، بعد أسبوع واحد فقط من حصوله على موافقة IDE.

First Patient Enrolled in SELUTION SLR IDE BTK Study

علق الدكتور مايكل ليشتنبيرج، رئيس قسم الأوعية الدموية في Klinikum Hochsauerland، Arnsberg ، ألمانيا. “أنا متحمس لبدء تجربة مهمة من شأنها أن تثبت الأدلة على أن هذه التكنولوجيا الجديدة تفيد المرضى الذين يعانون من CLTI .” “حتى الآن لم ينجح أي شيء باستمرار في هذه المجموعة من المرضى. البيانات السريرية المبكرة من سجلات SELUTION SLR مشجعة وقد رأيت أداء هذه التكنولوجيا الجديدة في عملي الروتيني. تم تصميم هذه الدراسة لإثبات أن SELUTION SLR أكثر فعالية من المعيار الحالي للرعاية في هذه الفئة الصعبة من المرضى.”

وتأتي بداية التسجيل في الدراسة بعد موافقة IDE (إعفاء الأجهزة التحقيقية) في الولايات المتحدة قبل أسبوع واحد. تم منح مؤشر BTK ل SELUTION SLR تسمية جهاز اختراق من قبل إدارة الأغذية والعقاقير في عام 2019.

الهدف من التجربة السريرية SELUTION4BTK هو إظهار الفعالية الفائقة والسلامة المكافئة ل SELUTION SLR مقارنة برأب الأوعية الدموية بالبالون العادي (غير المطلي) ( POBA ) في علاج شرايين BTK في مرضى CLTI (نقص تروية الأطراف المزمنة التي تهدد الأطراف). التجربة هي دراسة مستقبلية متعددة المراكز وأحادية التعمية وعشوائية.

MedAlliance Logo

يتم اختيار 377 شخصا عشوائيا بنسبة 1:1 إما إلى SELUTION SLR أو مجموعة التحكم. هذه هي الدراسة الأولى من نوعها حيث يمكن تضمين مرضى “العالم الحقيقي” الذين يعانون من CLI (نقص تروية الأطراف الحرجة). يتم تسجيل المرضى في حوالي 40 موقعا في جميع أنحاء الولايات المتحدة وأوروبا وآسيا.

أنا فخور جدا بفريق MedAlliance الذي تمكن من بدء هذه الدراسة بسرعة كبيرة وتسجيل أول مريض بعد أسبوع واحد فقط من الحصول على موافقة IDE ، جيفري ب. جامب، رئيس مجلس الإدارة والرئيس التنفيذي لشركة MedAlliance . “هذا إنجاز عظيم ومعلم رئيسي ل MedAlliance.”

حصل البالون المملوء بدواء سيروليموس من شركة ميد-ألاينس ( MedAlliance) ، والمعروف باسم SELUTION SLR ™، على اعتماد بعلامة ( CE ) لعلاج مرض الشريان المحيطي في فبراير 2020 ولعلاج أمراض الشرايين التاجية في مايو 2020. وقد وافقت إدارة الغذاء والدواء الأمريكية على استخدام عقار SELUTION SLR ، وسمته باكتشاف لأربعة دواعي استعمالات علاجية، هي: علاج أمراض تصلب الشرايين في الشرايين التاجية الأصلية؛ وعلاج إعادة ضيق الشريان التاجي؛ وللاستعمال في علاج الناسور الشرياني الوريدي ( AV ) الطرفي أسفل الركبة.

في أغسطس 2021، تم تسجيل أول مريض من بين أكثر من 3000 مريض في دراسة رائدة منضبطة معماة على الشرايين التاجية لمقارنة عقار SELUTION SLR مع دعامة ليموس المملوءة بالعقاقير [ DES ]. وتعد هذه الدراسة هي أكبر دراسة سريرية لبالون مملوء بعقار ( DEB ) نُظمت على الإطلاق، ومن المحتمل أن تغير مجرى الممارسة الطبية عالميًا.

ويشتمل البالون المملوء بالدواء من لشركة ميد-ألاينس ( MedAlliance ) على خزانات دقيقة وفريدة من نوعها مصنوعة من بوليمر قابل للتحلل الحيوي مختلط مع عقار السيروليموس المضاد لإعادة تضيق الأوعية الدموية. وتوفر هذه الخزانات الدقيقة إطلاقًا مضبوطًا ومستداماً للعقار يصل حتى 90 يومًا1. لقد ثبت أن الإطلاق الممتد لسيروليموس من الدعامات فعال للغاية في كل من الأوعية الدموية التاجية والمحيطية، وتتيح تقنية الالتصاق الخلوية الخاصة بشركة ميد-ألاينس ( MedAlliance ) إمكانية تثبيت الخزانات الدقيقة على البالونات والالتصاق بتجويف الوعاء عند تسليمها عبر بالون رأب الأوعية.

تتوفر SELUTION SLR في أوروبا وجميع البلدان الأخرى التي يتم فيها التعرف على علامة CE .

HONOR Announces Latest Sustainability Progress, Launches New HONOR Magic Moments ‘Earth View in the Mirror’ Monthly Challenge

From product packaging to business operations, HONOR steps up its environmental efforts with technology

SHENZHEN, China, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In celebration of the World Environment Day, global technology brand HONOR today announced the latest updates to its environmental credentials. From manufacturing and packaging to waste management, HONOR incorporates green practices in the full life cycle of products and its daily operations to actively promote sustainable development for a greener future.

Raising further awareness around the environment and sustainability, a new HONOR Magic Moments Monthly Challenge with the theme “Earth View in the Mirror” kicks off today on Instagram, Facebook and HONOR Global Club. The challenge aims to encourage participants to appreciate and capture the beautiful landscapes around the world. At the same time, HONOR official website has been updated with a new environmental page.

“At HONOR, we are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of our products,” said George Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co., Ltd. “With sustainability and circular economy as part of our product design philosophy, we strive to enhance the eco-friendliness of our products by evaluating their carbon footprint throughout the full life cycle, at the same time reducing the consumption of resources and energy.”

Improving Packaging with Environmental Awareness in Mind

To minimize resource consumption, HONOR uses packaging materials that are lightweight, compact, harmless, easy-to-recycle and environmentally friendly. The company also helps to protect the environment by replacing traditional petroleum-based ink and plastics with renewable and biodegradable packaging materials.

Switching from petroleum-based ink to soy ink, HONOR has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 80 tons since 2014. For the HONOR Magic Series, the phone tray is made of sugarcane bagasse instead of plastics, cutting carbon dioxide emission by 32 tons per million units. HONOR has also replaced plastics with paper for the protective film of chargers and data cables, further lowering carbon dioxide emission by 35 tons per 10 million units. In addition, Forest Stewardship Council-certified packaging boxes are used to contain products including the HONOR Magic Series smartphones and the HONOR Watch GS3, which help to conserve a forest area of approximately 122 hectares a year.

Since 2021, HONOR has been working on designing simpler and more robust packaging solution for laptops. Currently, HONOR laptops are all packed in boxes made of singular pieces of folded corrugated cardboard. Medium boxes typically used in delivery have also been eliminated, contribution to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 208 tons in total. For laptops and wearables, HONOR has saved approximately 74 tons of paper, equivalent to a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by 77 tons, by optimizing the packaging structure and consolidating the management of printed materials.

Meeting Strict Environmental Standards with Industry-Recognized Certifications

On top of satisfying the international requirements, HONOR maintains a more stringent set of internal environmental standards to take an active role in eliminating the potential harmful substances from its smartphones, tablets and other products.

After testing dozens of material formulas in partnership with multiple suppliers, HONOR has settled on using halogen-free power cables for all its smartphones and tablets, a change that resulted in the reduction of hazardous materials in the brand’s products by approximately 3,379 tons since it went into effect in 2016. To date, 76 of HONOR’s smartphones and tablets have received the Grade A Environmental Label from China Quality Certification Centre (CQC).

Exploring Clean Energy for Greener Operations

With a strong emphasis on environmental protection during its production and operations, HONOR aims to reduce its ecological footprint through energy conservation and emission reduction. While exploring the use of clean energy to lower the carbon dioxide emission of its industrial park, HONOR optimizes the management of facilities to cut energy consumption in daily operations by keeping energy records and monitoring and analyzing relevant data.

HONOR encourages its staff to embrace remote working by taking advantage of telecommunication tools such as audio and video calls to reduce the need for business trips. This change is estimated to reduce carbon emissions by 26,761 tons in a year, according to a research report co-authored by the Center Environmental Education and Communications of Ministry of Environmental Protection[1]. Inside the HONOR Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park, HONOR operates 146 shuttle routes, providing a greener option for employees to commute to work and effectively reducing carbon emissions by another 1,317 tons[2].

Adopting sustainability practices with industry partners, HONOR will continue to focus its environmental, social and governance efforts on green initiatives. While achieving the sustainable development of the company, HONOR strives to build a new intelligent world for everyone with innovation and technology.

HONOR Discusses Future of Mobile Imaging at Counterpoint Research Webinar

Elevating smartphone camera imaging quality to levels that can even rival what some DSLR cameras offer

SHENZHEN, China, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — HONOR, a global technology brand, today shared insights from the perspective of an industry leader at a Counterpoint Research event. Titled “Smartphone Imaging Trends: New Directions Capturing Magic Moments”, the webinar invited HONOR to discuss its leading role in delivering cutting-edge smartphone imaging solutions and the prevailing trends that are directing the future of smartphone cameras.

“Smartphone photography is not just about hardware or software. At HONOR, we excel in leveraging fusion computational photography and multiple cameras to achieve what we call ‘all for one and one for all’ synergy, elevating smartphone camera imaging quality to levels that can even rival what some DSLR cameras offer,” said Dr. Weilong Hou, Technical Expert, HONOR Imaging. “The HONOR Magic4 Series exemplifies the work of our R&D team, featuring the HONOR Image Engine that not only enables users to harness the full capabilities every camera equipped on an HONOR smartphone, but also makes incredible image quality accessible to everyday users.”

The webinar was moderated by Peter Ricardson, Vice President of Research, Counterpoint Research, with a panel of industry veterans and subject experts in attendance, including Dr. Hou; Hervé Macudzinski, Image Science Director, DXOMARK; Judd Heape, Vice President of Product Management, Qualcomm and Eugenio Recuenco, renowned professional photographer, film director and two-time Cannes Lion Award winner, who has also recently shot a film entirely on the HONOR Magic4 Pro. The event complements a Counterpoint Research whitepaper that is publishing today.

HONOR Image Engine: The Core of HONOR Smartphone Cameras

In his presentation, Dr. Hou introduced the HONOR Image Engine, HONOR’s cutting edge camera solution that enables the hardware to work in unison with AI and algorithms to generate high quality visuals. Underpinning the camera experience, the solution helps users elevate simple camera captures to artistic renditions of their creative vision. As the latest HONOR flagship smartphones, HONOR Magic4 Pro and HONOR Magic4 Ultimate are a testament to the efficacy of the solution, with the latter scoring 146 on DXOMARK Overall Camera Score – the highest score ever given by the authoritative product evaluation organization.

Addressing user pain points around mobile photography and video capture, the two smartphones debuted with a wide range of cutting-edge features, including the ability to take high quality photos while capturing a video. Going forward, according to Dr. Hou, HONOR will continue striving to empower consumers to take great images anytime, anywhere through R&D, with a focus on achieving performance parity between mobile and dedicated cameras, improving image quality, and harnessing a wider array of sensors with more advanced software to comprehensively improve imaging outcomes.

Currently, all HONOR Magic Series and HONOR N Series smartphones are equipped with HONOR Image Engine, which works in the background to ensure better photo and video capturing results.

Evaluating Smartphone Cameras

From the perspective of a trusted product evaluation expert, Macudzinski shared his views on the requirements for a great photograph – a photographer’s skill to identify and frame the scene, the occurrence of a decisive moment to be captured with clarity, and the camera’s capabilities to understand user’s intention and modify images accordingly. For a smartphone camera to be regarded as exceptional, according to Macudzinski, it needs to support these features in the camera’s default shooting mode. The expert illustrated his viewpoints with HONOR Magic4 Ultimate, which has remained the top of DXOMARK’s smartphone camera rankings since its test report was published in March. Commending the HONOR flagship smartphone for its exceptional user experience, capture capability and AI processing, Macudzinski discussed key highlights from DXOMARK’s report, focusing on HONOR Magic4 Ultimate zoom performance across various focal lengths and the fusion between hardware and software allowing the various camera lenses to work together and produce objectively better image quality.

Smartphone Photography from a Professional’s Perspective

Renowned for his works as a photographer and film director, Recuenco recently shot his film Kaleidoscope entirely on HONOR Magic4 Pro. Recounting his experience during the presentation, Recuenco said filming with the HONOR smartphone felt familiar, as the array of professional features such as the powerful camera system and Magic-Log provided him with the creative freedom he enjoys with professional gear, but in a much more pocketable form factor. Recuenco, as one of the judges for the HONOR Magic Moments competition, also selected a few submissions from the year’s contest and commented on the myriad possibilities today’s smartphone cameras have enabled for people to be more expressive on their captures than ever before.

Technological Integration

Representing Qualcomm, Heape shared insights into the collaboration that brought the HONOR Image Engine to life. The HONOR Magic4 Series took full advantage of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Mobile Platform and the latest Qualcomm AI Engine for Ultra Fusion Photography, allowing images taken by different lenses and processed by multiple ISP to complement each other to achieve an improvement in image quality. The innovative algorithm HONOR developed fully released the RAW domain computational photography capabilities. With HONOR Image Engine’s flexible frame work, while Qualcomm’s ISP can support the high throughput of multi-threading and parallel processing, which leads to innovative functions and user experiences like “Advanced Photoshoot While Video Recording”.

Complementary Counterpoint Research Whitepaper

The webinar is a complement to a new Counterpoint Research whitepaper which offers a holistic view on the wider industry trends with contributions from webinar panelists. The whitepaper is available for download on Counterpoint Research’s website.

ROSEN, GLOBAL INVESTOR COUNSEL, Encourages Bakkt Holdings, Inc. f/k/a VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings Investors with Losses to Secure Counsel Before Important June 21 Deadline in Securities Class Action – BKKT, BKKT-WT, VIHAU, VIH, VIHAW

NEW YORK, June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of Bakkt Holdings, Inc. f/k/a VPC Impact Acquisition Holdings (NYSE: BKKT, BKKT-WT) (NASDAQ: VIHAU, VIH, VIHAW) (a) between May 7, 2021 and February 25, 2022, inclusive (the “Class Period”); and/or (b) pursuant and/or traceable to the Offering Documents issued in connection with the business combination between the Company and Bakkt Holdings, LLC (“Legacy Bakkt”) completed on or about October 15, 2021 (the “Business Combination”) of the important June 21, 2022 lead plaintiff deadline.

SO WHAT: If you purchased Bakkt securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the Bakkt class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=5546 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than June 21, 2022. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually handle securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, the Offering Documents were negligently prepared and, as a result, contained untrue statements of material fact or omitted to state other facts necessary to make the statements made not misleading and were not prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations governing their preparation, and that throughout the Class Period defendants made materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company’s business, operations, and compliance policies. Specifically, the Offering Documents and defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Bakkt had defective financial controls; (2) as a result, there were errors in the Company’s financial statements related to the misclassification of certain shares issued prior to the Business Combination; (3) accordingly, Bakkt would need to restate certain of its financial statements; (4) Bakkt downplayed the true scope and severity of these issues; (5) Bakkt overstated its remediation of its defective financial controls; and (6) as a result, the Offering Documents and defendants’ public statements throughout the Class Period were materially false and/or misleading and failed to state information required to be stated therein. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the Bakkt class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=5546 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

International NASH Day Highlights a Common – But Unfamiliar – Liver Disease

Global Liver Institute Convenes Communities Around the Globe Today to Reverse the Growing Trend of Fatty Liver Disease

Washington, D.C., June 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Global Liver Institute (GLI) calls attention to NASH by leading the 5th annual International NASH Day on June 9. The number of people with this advanced liver disease is expected to double by 2030, but #NASHday aims to prevent this growth. Join the movement to #StopNASHNow by listening in as 24 expert panelists from around the globe share the latest updates about the disease or adding to the conversation on social media (#NASHday). The movement permeates the globe through many locally-organized events to educate about, screen for, and prevent NASH.

NASH (nonalcoholic steatohepatitis) is a serious, progressive condition in which too much fat accumulates on the liver, leading to its inflammation and injury. It is the severe form of NAFLD (nonalcoholic fatty liver disease). Modern lifestyle and dietary patterns have contributed to increased prevalence of NASH and NAFLD around the world, and it is becoming the most common cause of liver disease. Given its widespread impact and the possibility of prevention in most cases of this disease, NASH emerges as a global health priority.

“With over a hundred million people worldwide already who have NASH and several times more in the earlier stages, people have reason to know about this progressive condition and what they can do today to combat it,” shared Donna R. Cryer, president and CEO of GLI. “Collective action is imperative to be certain that individuals in each community, no matter their background or environment, are informed and equipped to prevent fatty liver disease. The momentum that we build together today must advance and sustain the global fight against NASH.”

If you didn’t know, then now you know! Even though NASH is common, it remains relatively unknown, leaving much work to be done to increase public awareness. This year, GLI and its partners join with the theme to #StopNASHNow: Even as therapies for NASH are being developed, there are many steps that people and their doctors can take today to prevent, reverse, or slow the progression of fatty liver disease. For the 25% of adults already affected worldwide, it is due time for this life-changing knowledge.

  • An estimated 1 in 4 adults around the world already has NAFLD.
  • As many as 1 in 20 people has NASH.
  • The prevalence of NAFLD is increasing among all global regions and among all ethnicities in parallel with diabetes and obesity.
  • NASH can progress to cirrhosis or liver cancer – which may necessitate a liver transplant.

“International NASH Day demonstrates the potential that is realized as all stakeholders in NASH come together worldwide,” said Jeff McIntyre, NASH Programs Director at GLI. “From in-person screenings in at-risk communities to educational materials in 16 languages to challenging conversations with researchers, providers, and patients – today the world joins to create meaningful solutions for patients at every stage of NAFLD and NASH.”

International NASH Day has garnered the endorsement of prominent organizations from around the globe: American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD); Association of Black Gastroenterologists and Hepatologists (ABGH); Asociación Latinoamericana para el Estudio del Hígado (ALEH); Associazione Italiana Studio del Fegato (AISF); Asociación Mexicana de Hepatología (AMH); Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL); Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver (CASL); Conference on Liver Disease in Africa (COLDA); European African Treatment Advocates Network (EATAN); European Fatty Liver Conference (EFLC); European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN); EU Patient-Centric Clinical Trial Platforms (EU-PEARL); Fondazione Epatocentro Ticino; Hepatology Society, Dhaka, Bangladesh; Hepatology Society of the Philippines (HSP); Indian National Association for the Study of the Liver (INASL); North American Society For Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition (NASPGHAN); Sociedad Argentina de Hepatologia (SAHE);Turkish Association for the Study of the Liver (TASL); United European Gastroenterology (UEG); World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO); and World Patients Alliance (WPA).
