When speaking to Lumigent, it recognizes words and automatically performs actions such as lighting and transformation. The main body has a movable axis with four-degree-freedom, and when not in use, it waits in a folded space-saving state. When the user calls “Hi Lumi, Turn on”, the light lights up at the optimum position set in advance without needing to operate the main unit or the smartphone application.

 

Lumigent is equipped with Wi-Fi and an autofocus 8 megapixel camera. The user can automatically capture documents and objects on their desk and save them on a microSD or cloud via Wi-Fi. Users can operate Lumigent’s camera with only their voice and there is no need to operate the main unit. This freedom allows the user to take pictures or videos with both hands working or of themselves pointing with a finger or pen. Lumigent’s camera can capture still images and videos, as well as time lapse images.

Lumigent has a Micro USB terminal and can be used as an 8 megapixel web camera when connected to a PC with a USB cable. Simply talk to Lumigent before starting a video conference or call and it will automatically move the camera from the position used for lighting, to the optimum angle for video calls. Ethernet connectivity is available as an option.

 

Cerevo is also pleased to announce that it has been named as a CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Home Appliances product category for Lumigent. This is the third consecutive year Cerevo has received an Innovation Award at CES, winning in 2015 for LiveWedge and in 2016 for ORBITREC.

Cerevo, an Internet connected consumer electronics developer and creator, announces the global availability of “RIDE-1” today. It will be available for pre-order today at the Official Cerevo Store as well as Amazon.com for US$299.00 and the product is currently scheduled to ship in January 2017.

RIDE-1 is a clip on cycle device with various sensor modules and is one of the XON series of smart sports products. RIDE-1 allows existing bike owners to use the advanced sensors. The product will be exhibited at CES 2017 from 5th January in Las Vegas, USA.


https://ride1.cerevo.com/

RIDE-1’s built in communication features include ANT+, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, in addition to various sensors such as GPS. Unlike traditional cycle computers that only record running data attached to a bicycle, the characteristics of RIDE-1 allow riding data to be shared and analyzed by linking with smartphones and the cloud.



■Recording Riding Data
RIDE-1 features a 9 axis sensor, temperature, atmospheric pressure and brightness sensors as well as GPS. In addition to basic information such as riding route location and velocity, frame status such as lean and impact can be recorded by the main unit. When combined with a smartphone using Bluetooth, the riding log history can be viewed in real time turning your smartphone into a cycling computer.

■ANT+ Collaboration

RIDE-1 supports ANT+ technology, which is widely used as a wireless connection standard for fitness devices, Bluetooth is also available to communicate with other devices and services. Data on third-party sensors that are compatible with ANT+ can be imported into RIDE-1 (*1) and recorded and viewed on the cloud through RIDE-1. In addition, users can operate devices which support ANT+ by using RIDE-1, for example, automatically turning on an ANT+ compatible light when it gets dark.(*2)

■Data Management in the Cloud
RIDE-1 has built-in IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN connectivity. You can connect to the Internet via wireless LAN and upload data saved on RIDE-1 to a dedicated web service provided by Cerevo. After uploading, data can be viewed on either a PC or smartphone using a web browser, or on the companion smartphone application, making it possible to look back on past riding data and analyze it.

Live Telemetry Function
Using the 3G/LTE connection on your smartphone, you can share riding data in real time via the cloud. RIDE-1 is not only useful for informing family and friends of your location while riding, but also can record and make available body data such as the position of riders running, heart rate and power value to the accompanying support car or technical pit crew. Advanced bicycle riders can use the real time telemetry data to get feedback on their performance and progress.

■Group Function
It is possible to group registration of multiple RIDE-1 devices and view live telemetry from multiple riders. During cycling with a riding group, team mates or friends, you can check in real time information about your group’s current progress. You can also use the RIDE-1 group function to check current location on the way to a meeting place.

Cerevo announces Tipron, a transforming, Internet connected projection home robot to launch globally https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/2016/12/09/512/ Fri, 09 Dec 2016 08:31:24 +0000 https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/?p=512 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

9th December 2016, Tokyo

Cerevo announces “Tipron”, a transforming, Internet connected projection home robot to launch globally

Turning all the walls and ceilings in your home into displays

Cerevo, an Internet connected consumer electronics developer and creator, is pleased to announce the global launch of Tipron, a transforming, Internet connected projection robot. Tipron will be available for pre-order today at the Official Cerevo Store as well as Amazon.com for US$2,299.00 and the product is currently scheduled to ship in January 2017. It will also be available for purchase at b8ta Santa Monica starting from 10th December 2016.

Tipron
https://tipron.cerevo.com/

Tipron was developed based on the concept to turn all the walls, floors and ceilings in your home into displays, providing a new experience for visual media consumption. Tipron can automatically move and project visual content on a wall or ceiling in your house at a designated time and day as if they are tuned into displays.

Tipron can automatically project an 80 inch HD screen from a distance of 3 meters. Its transforming function allows it to project at a variety of different heights and angles and contract to a compact size when not in use. Tipron will automatically adjust its height depending on its current operating mode, for example, Tipron can contract to a compact size when charging and moving, then expand to 80 cm when projecting images or video.

Tipron’s projector unit can adjust roll, pitch and yaw (up/down -35/+90 degrees and left/right ±90 degrees) and features automatic keystone correction so you can project distortion free images and videos to any place on a wall or ceiling with auto-focusing. It also has a built in 5 watt speaker.

Tipron is operated via its dedicated smartphone app. You can specify the location, time and projection content, then Tipron will automatically move to the specified place and project information to the specified wall, floor, ceiling or other places at set times of the day.

  

 

There is also a pre-schedule function of those actions. For example, you can project a relaxing YouTube video from 7:00 to 7:30 am every morning on the ceiling of your bedroom and you can also project the morning news headlines to the living room wall from 7:30 to 8:00 am using a news site RSS feed. Tipron returns to it’s charging station automatically to a preset location when it needs or when it finishes all scheduled actions.

The app can manually remote control Tipron with a live camera video feed being streamed to your smartphone, also you can move  it to any location without setting a schedule. The battery life is 2 hours (*1) maximum for one battery. Two batteries can be installed in the main unit and the battery life for two batteries together is 4 hours (*1) maximum. The extra battery is planned to be sold separately, and the price  at the Official Cerevo Store is US$149.


Using Tipron’s built in HDCP compatible HDMI socket it is possible to connect and project video from a PC, video recorder, game console, Blu-Ray player or other media device. In addition to the function to display YouTube and RSS reader only on the main unit, you can also connect a wireless streaming device such as Chromecast or Miracast to enable projection of internet content to any location in your home.

 

 

Tipron is not a home robot that aimed to replace TV or home projector. TV and existing home projectors require your “active operation” and it is not so easy to move the location around. While smartphone enables users enjoy personal content wherever they like, it requires “active operation” more than TV does in addition to a smaller screen.
Tipron is an unprecedented home robot that delivers information enriching people’s lives at various places in the home fitting on their lifestyle using a “Zero UI” concept which requires no “active operation”.

Update available for LiveShell series and Dashboard – new features added to LiveShell X https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/2016/12/02/504/ Fri, 02 Dec 2016 10:28:49 +0000 https://info-en-blog.cerevo.com/?p=504 Cerevo has released a comprehensive update for its entire range of LiveShell live streaming devices. The update includes fixes for every LiveShell device and LiveShell X has added functions such as multi-streaming “play & stop” and displaying SD card recording capacity.

uball-660x371

LiveShell X
https://s.cerevo.com/x

The update is available for all four LiveShell devices – LiveShell, LiveShell 2, LiveShell PRO and LiveShell X as well as LiveWedge.

Specific fixes and enhancements include –

  • For all devices, a fix for when connected to the Internet the device would show as offline in Dashboard and could not be operated.
  • For all devices except LiveShell, a vertical crop at 9:16 aspect ratio is available so that vertical video from smartphones can now be broadcast.

LiveShell X has been enhanced with new Dashboard functions in addition to the device update. Controls have been simplified so that a button which can start and stop multiple live streaming services at the same time is now available. This makes it unnecessary to open individual tabs of each streaming service to start and stop live streaming. In addition, we added streaming settings buttons for each streaming service tab which simplifies settings changes for each streaming service.

lsx_db_en01

For LiveShell X recording functions, microSD card capacity will now be displayed when inserted into the main unit. Also, when a microSD card is not inserted and you try to perform a recording operation, you get an alert telling you that a card is not inserted.

In the Custom Settings screen for advanced configuration, text descriptions of streaming specifications and restrictions are now listed.

lsx_db_en02

The outline of the restrictions is as follows –

  • The resolution of channel 0 (the leftmost tab) is the same as the input image and can not be changed
  • Crop and aspect ratio can not be changed on channel 0
  • H.265 is effective only when streaming in recording or RTSP mode

Finally, streams not used in audio settings are displayed as grayed out so that you can see at a glance which stream you are using.For more details on each product, please see their online manuals –
