Press Release: RapidSOS and INdigital Partner to Provide Improved Location Accuracy and Additional Data to Public Safety Answering Points in the INdigital Network

New York, NY, Jan. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INdigital and RapidSOS today announced a strategic partnership to provide Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) served by INdigital Next Generation 9-1-1 networks with accurate location and additional data from the RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse. Through this partnership, 9-1-1 professionals will be able to access data from the RapidSOS Clearinghouse — including accurate handset location from all smartphone location sensors.Millions of smartphones and other connected devices transmit precise device-based hybrid location and additional data to the RapidSOS Clearinghouse when a 9-1-1 call or other request for emergency is made. Through the RapidSOS integration, PSAPs connected to INdigital networks will be able to query the RapidSOS Clearinghouse when a wireless call is received, and retrieve supplementary location and additional data through NG9-1-1 delivery mechanisms.For the first time, Public Safety Answering Points are able to fully leverage the capabilities of modern smartphones to aid in emergency response, without a need for the public caller to use an app. INdigital is currently testing the RapidSOS integration in selected PSAPs in Indiana and is planning to roll the integration out to their Public Safety customers across the country.“This is yet another example of how transformative NG911 can be,” said Mark Grady, INdigital founder and President. “We are thrilled to be working with a company like RapidSOS who is bringing forward-looking innovation to the 9-1-1 industry. Our Emergency Services IP networks (ESiNet) have been designed and built to support the type of external applications developed by RapidSOS, and to make additional data directly available to PSAPs with just a small amount of training. With just a mouse click or two, a 911 telecommunicator will get the best location information available.”“Providing accurate location and additional data to 9-1-1 call takers allows first responders to quickly respond to emergencies with appropriate care,” said Michael Martin, CEO of RapidSOS. “Through our partnership with INdigital, emergencies in Indiana and across the country will see faster response times and transformed emergency outcomes.”About INdigital
INdigital was formed in 1995 by a group of independent telephone companies to develop and provide new technology in several segments of the industry.  In 2004, INdigital was selected by the Indiana Wireless 9-1-1 Advisory Board to build a new 9-1-1 network for Indiana. These emerging technologies are now known as NG9-1-1. The company has expanded its service area by building private, high availability IP based public safety networks throughout the United States. INdigital ESi networks have evolved to meet industry standards, and provide local 9-1-1 authorities and other emergency system service providers innovative platforms for emergency service processing and delivery.
About RapidSOS
RapidSOS is an advanced emergency technology company.  Formed in 2012 and backed by some of the world’s leading Silicon Valley technologists, RapidSOS is partnering with technology companies and the public safety community to provide transformative data in emergencies. RapidSOS is developing technology to predict and preempt emergencies before they occur, dynamically warn people in harm’s way, and link data from any connected device directly to first responders in an emergency.

Press Release: Imagination’s new PowerVR GPUs deliver leading performance in lowest area for mid-range markets

LONDON, Jan. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imagination Technologies (IMG.L) announces a new family of GPUs that provides the ideal balance of performance and fillrate needed to enable gaming and compute applications on cost-sensitive devices. PowerVR ‘Series8XE Plus’ GPUs expand the company’s highly successful range of entry-level and mid-range GPUs with three new IP cores optimized for gaming and compute on devices such as premium set-top boxes, mid-range smartphones, and automotive infotainment systems. The new GPUs also have more features for enhanced in-system efficiency. In addition, Imagination is extending its complementary line-up of PowerVR Series8XE GPUs with two new IP cores, supporting one pixel per clock (PPC) and eight PPC.
Series8XE and Series8XE Plus GPUs deliver the best performance/mm2 while incorporating advanced features and support for the latest APIs. Fillrate optimized Series8XE GPUs are ideal for GUI/casual gaming focused markets including DTVs, set-top boxes, streaming sticks/dongles, automotive HMI, and entry-level mobile devices. Series8XE Plus GPUs have increased GFLOPS to provide a step up to mid-range devices targeting 1080p displays, with the ability to scale to 4K and beyond.Series8XE Plus GPU hardware is optimized to work not only with the latest graphics APIs but also advanced compute and vision APIs such as OpenVX™ 1.1 and OpenCL® 1.2. In mid-range markets, this support is critical since such devices don’t typically incorporate dedicated hardware for vision and compute. 8XE Plus GPUs provide an area and power efficient solution for these tasks.Jon Peddie, president, JPR Research, says: “With these new GPUs, Imagination has demonstrated the greatest compute and fillrate density in the minimum silicon area. Balancing fillrate and FLOPS is the right approach for mid-range devices to provide consumers an enhanced experience, while maintaining the low area needed for price sensitive categories.”Says Graham Deacon, VP PowerVR business operations, Imagination: “With 8XE we are seeing customers move to PowerVR from competitor GPUs. We expect this to continue with the introduction of the new 8XE and 8XE Plus cores as we are now addressing even more performance and area points. Series8XE Plus GPUs represent the industry’s best graphics cores for gaming and compute on 1080p displays in cost sensitive devices, and demonstrate Imagination’s continuing technology leadership.”Inside Series8XE Plus GPUs
The initial Series8XE Plus GPUs each deliver up to four pixels per clock and incorporate advanced features such as hardware virtualization, OmniShield™ multi-domain security, and support for the latest APIs including OpenGL® ES 3.2, OpenCL® 1.2, Vulkan® 1.0 and OpenVX 1.1*. Micro-architectural tuning translates into reduced bandwidth usage and improved in-system performance through a reduced number of small inefficient bursts for higher fabric/memory utilization. The GPUs are optimized to provide customers with specific solutions for their application. The new GPUs build on the successful Series8XE GE8300 GPU, which also has four PPC:
GE8320: 2x FLOPS for low- to mid-range mobile devicesGE8325: 2x FLOPS plus features including PVRIC and 10-bit YUV for set-top boxes and HDTV gaming applicationsGE8340: 4x FLOPS for ultimate gaming on mid- to high-end mobile devicesThe micro architectural enhancements in PowerVR Series8XE Plus GPUs are now also incorporated into Series8XE GPUs including the one PPC area optimized GE8100 IP core and the eight PPC GE8430 GPU which has the vastly increased throughput required for high resolution 2K/4K screens.With Series8XE and 8XE Plus, customers can choose the appropriate core for their specific application – be it GUI, gaming or compute focused. Compatibility across the range means that licensing partners can benefit from using PowerVR GPUs across their entire product line from entry-level to high-end.Series8XE and Series8XE Plus GPUs have already been licensed by multiple customers for TVs, set-top boxes, mid-range mobile devices, ultra-low cost phones/tablets, and automotive applications.Software and tools support
Imagination provides developers with free access to the cross-platform PowerVR SDK, designed to support all aspects of 3D graphics application development; as well as tools and utilities that ease development of 3D graphics and GPU compute applications. Developers can join the PowerVR Insider community, download the SDK for free and interact through developer forums at http://community.imgtec.com/developers/powervr/.
Physical Design Optimization Kits (DOKs) for Imagination’s PowerVR Series8XE Plus GPUs will also be available, offering customers the flexibility to optimize for power, performance and area (PPA). Imagination DOKs are comprised of optimized reference design flows, tuned libraries from partners, characterization data and documentation.Availability
