ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindpix Corporation (OTC Pink: MPIX) previously announced they signed a Co-Production agreement with ZZYX Entertainment LLC, for the production and distribution of the December 21, 2012 Concert. We are pleased to announce today the completion of a co-partnership agreement with "Synthesis 2012." The New Beginnings Concert will include a live stream from the Synthesis 2012 stage and exclusive programming with Mayan leaders at Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo in Yucatan Mexico.
The Concert Event will be called "The New Beginnings 12-21 Concert." The New Beginnings 12-21 Concert will be a Live Global musical festival event from all over the world. According to the Mayan calendar December 21, 2012 marks the end of a "World Age." Mayan elders do not prophesize 12-21 as the end of the world but rather a time of transition highlighting the importance of our choice on how we wish to enter the future ahead. We intend to unite people in a common cause, through the universal language of music, asking people to take action for positive change around the planet and to raise funds for charities who are affecting changes everyday throughout the world. The primary charitable theme for this event will be to support organization involved in feeding and educating children around the world. The Live event main stage will be in Orlando, Florida with the second stage in Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo, Yucatan Mexico with Synthesis 2012. The event will be streamed around the world with special premium programming available on a pay for view basis. More details on the concert including; locations, performing artists, celebrity contributors, beneficiary charities and how to view the event will be released shortly.
Armando Almirall, President and CEO of MPIX states; "The cooperation with Synthesis 2012 is providing an extraordinary resource for our event. Synthesis brings relationships like the International Mayan Council and a rich bed of both live and taped programming to be used in our streaming event. Previously we planned to tape the New Beginnings 2012 Concert in Belize, but the Synthesis 2012 productions from Chichen Itza and Piste Pueblo in Yucatan Mexico offered Mindpix Corporation a more substantial reflection of the Mayan culture through their approved schedule of historical educational and entertainment events. We look forward to having Rick Garson lead our productions team with this being the first of many events to be completed with ZZYX."

Rick Garson, the Chairman and CEO of ZZYX states; "12-21-2012 is an Equinox event that only happens every 26,000 years. This is a once in a millennium opportunity to kick-off of a 365-day initiative with multiple events to raise awareness and bring people together. Change always starts with one and this music event will literally reach hundreds of millions of people worldwide through the universal language of music to do some good. Many people talk about doing good, these concerts will give all of us the opportunity to effect positive change. This has been a personal mission of mine and I was so pleased in finding likeminded partners in Mindpix."
"The New Beginning" theme originated in Mayan history, celebrating the ending of the current Mayan 'long count calendar' – the oldest and most accurate calendar in the world. This event only occurs every 5,126 years and will officially take place on the 21st of December 2012. This December 21st, 2012 date also marks not only this year's Winter Equinox but also the Processional Earth, which many believe is the alignment of planet Earth with the very center of the Milky Way galaxy. Experts say this alignment only occurs once every twenty six thousand years.
Michael DiMartino, Executive Producer of Synthesis 2012 states; "The cooperation with MPIX and ZZYX only enhances our event and provides wider media distribution of this landmark event. Synthesis 2012 is a global gathering, world music festival and spiritual celebration that is important for the world to view as the current Mayan calendar ends and we begin a new world cycle. The Mayan people are re-unifying their culture and co-creating a message for humanity, a message of hope and transformation in these times of transition. The New Beginnings 12-21 Concert and Synthesis 2012 both serve to create global awareness of this historic transformation celebration and planetary synchronization as a crossroads between the past, the present and the future."

Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...

We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
