3vNet Offers New Possibilities: Brighter Future for Existing and Potential Customers

Formerly Colorado vNet, 3vNet plans to increase staff and
provide new dealer programs

ORLANDO, FL – June 18, 2012 – Colorado vNet, a manufacturer of advanced, elegant and easy to use whole-house automation products, has announced it will formally operate under the new company name 3vNet Inc., effectively immediately.

The rebranding follows the completion of the purchase of Colorado vNet Corp, led by company CEO Mike Anderson, in April 2012.

“The name 3vNet is a natural fit for this brand,” said Anderson. “We understand the ups and downs the brand has had over the past few years and we want our dealers to know that we recognize that and will use it as the foundation for going forward. Keeping the past top of mind will keep us humble and make us work harder to make things better. The third generation of this brand will be different than the previous two and 3vNet customers will soon see the benefits of our efforts. Key factors in the strategy to move forward are: a more open architecture; new pricing strategies; increased product development efforts; and, more and better training. These efforts will combine to ensure our customers will receive the best this industry has to offer.”

As part of the rebranding strategy, 3vNet is driven by a renewed commitment to customer service. The company has already doubled its tech support team to provide customers with an even greater level of support.

Operations in New Hampshire and Colorado are being consolidated into a single location in Orlando, Florida. This consolidation will streamline internal operations, reduce overall costs and provide a much better pool of talent to support the aggressive growth of the engineering and software development teams.

The new 3vNet headquarters are located at:
2400 Sand Lake Road, Suite 600
Orlando, Florida, 32809

Main: (800) 987-8638
Support: (888) 864-0303

Key team members from Colorado and New Hampshire will continue with the company and will be relocating to Orlando over the coming months. In the meantime, the company will utilize available technologies to make the transition appear seamless to dealers.

The servers that support existing systems and the commissioning of new systems have been located to a new secure site with 24/7 maintenance and support. Additionally, the management of 3vNet is investing heavily in the company’s infrastructure to ensure its support programs are made more readily available to customers.

Thanks to the development of better vendor relationships under its new management, 3vNet is rolling out a new pricing structure for its products that enables dealers to be more competitive and provides homeowners with a more affordable solution for total home control.

Tributaries® Revamps Consumer Site and Launches Dedicated Sites for Dealers and Reps

Orlando, FL—May 2012—Tributaries is pleased to unveil its newly revamped web site with simplified information gathering tools designed to make it easier to explore their vast array of product offerings on the public pages. They have also added a shopping area, providing dealers a dedicated site for online ordering. For reps, a new site provides for online ordering as well as real-time information for their territory.

“We are thrilled with the new web site offering customers easy access to information so they can quickly compare products, and if more information is desired, it’s very easy to find,” said Joe Perfito, President of Tributaries. “While the addition of the new dealer and rep sites provide a powerful tool for our sales force with a complete online ordering system and invoice tracking system. Tributaries now provides a simplified and informative consumer front with a dealer/rep back-end that expedites doing business with our company. We believe this will greatly enhance the way our partners can operate and ultimately increase profit for everyone.”

The main consumer site will offer 4 tabs for quick reference to every product including features and benefits, specifications, images and downloads which will include literature, specifications, manuals, warranty information etc.

The dealer site is structured with four easy tabs: Shop Our Products, My Account, Resources and Contact Us. In the Shop Our Products area, dealers can shop Tributaries vast line with access to its 4000+ products via an easy to use menu and narrow the search function. Dealers can build carts while on the job and submit them later via saved carts. A key advantage and cost-saving measure, when the order is ready to submit, the site will tell the dealer how close they are to earning free freight on that order.

The My Account section gives access to important account information that includes established payment terms, credit limit and invoice ageing with the ability to view invoices and print statements. Due to the sensitive business nature of this information, Tributaries has built-in security levels for user activities. The account section also includes purchase history: with a quick view of VIR and Free Freight earned as well as a purchase history in dollars by month, quarter and year. Resources section includes anything related to assisting sales, saving dealers time from bouncing back and forth from the consumer site looking for tech documents and supporting materials.

The dedicated Rep site provides access to the features of the dealer site, going even further to provide critical and detailed real-time information to a rep organization for each dealer in their territory. They can view account info, invoices, statements, product movement, purchase history, RMA status, order placement, etc. We added a shared note section on each account for the sales rep and the corporate office to add helpful notes about the dealer’s development. The valuable resources section has territory reports, commission reports, pricelists, as well as many other options. Again due to the sensitive nature of this information, Tributaries has provided various security levels, which a rep can manage internally to do determine which users have access to what information.

Tributaries is now on Twitter, please check out @Tributaries to follow. And be sure to like us on Facebook.

SIM2 Offers Trade-Up Program for 3-Chip 720p Models

Miramar, Florida—May 2012—SIM2 recently launched a trade-up program allowing customers with 720p 3-chip models, such as those from the HT500 and C3X series, to upgrade to stunning Full HD 3D with a new LUMIS 3D model, courtesy of a generous trade-in value.

“With the Summer Olympics just around the corner now is an excellent time for dealers to upgrade their 720p clients,” said Alberto Fabiano, Executive Vice President for SIM2 USA. “Our 720p projectors were the top of the class in their time, however the stunning improvements made to our LUMIS Series will leave customers speechless when they see the difference. So often, customers become used to the picture they are watching, not realizing that there could be a significant improvement available to them. We created this program for our dealers to reconnect with their customer base to offer them an upgrade and ultimately boost their bottom line.”

The LUMIS 3D projectors are totally unique to SIM2 and represent the culmination of over 10 years of innovation and research in the field of video projector design and technology. The LUMIS 3D line features a choice of three active models (the LUMIS 3D-S UNO, LUMIS 3D SOLO and LUMIS 3D SOLO HC) and one passive model (LUMIS 3D DUO), each differing in its level of sophistication, while offering unprecedented picture quality for the discerning customer.

The SIM2 Dealer ‘trade-up’ program is your customers’ gateway to 1080p 3D enjoyment. And in time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London this summer…

Full details of the 3-chip Trade-Up Promotion are available from your SIM2 representative company or the SIM2 USA sales department.

SIM2 Partners with goHDR for world first in television technology at NAB 2012

Miramar, Florida—April 2012—Innovative television technology that’s as clever as the human eye is to be showcased by University of Warwick spinout company goHDR at the NAB Show® in Las Vegas, later this month. SIM2’s first High Dynamic Range Display, the HDR47E monitor, will be used in the demonstration showing the HDR content produced by goHDR.

goHDR will provide the world with its first glimpse of High Dynamic Range (HDR) video, screened on the SIM2 HDR display, enabling viewers to see images with exceptional lighting detail. goHDR is developing compression technology that will enable the huge data streams produced by HDR video cameras to be displayed on a TV screen.

“We are proud to be part of goHDR’s new video technology showcase in Las Vegas. Our HDR47E monitor is a technological tour-de-force developed by SIM2 engineers to make full use of the real-life dynamic range of HDR images,” says Alberto Fabiano EVP SIM2 USA Inc. “The goHDR presentation will be, yet again, another opportunity to show the world SIM2′s technology leadership: an experience that streams down to our entire line of precision products hand-made in Italy.”

Alan Chalmers, Professor of Visualization at WMG, University of Warwick and Innovation Director at goHDR, explains: “High Dynamic Range video is the next big step in TV imaging – similar to the change from black and white to color TV. For the first time, viewers will be able to see scenes on TV just as they would in real life, without losing detail in the glare of bright sunlight or in deep shadow.”

“The data stream produced by HDR cameras is huge – equivalent to a CD worth of data per second. To address this issue, goHDR has produced two products: an Encoder which compresses the data to allow it to be transferred to a display, and a Media Player, which reverses the process and allows the pictures to be viewed with all the glorious lighting detail preserved,” says Professor Chalmers.

“We are very excited to be working with SIM2 to display HDR content on the world’s first commercial HDR display,” says Professor Chalmers. “TV viewers will get an exclusive glimpse at the significant difference that this technology will make to their viewing experience. HDR is coming. At NAB you will be able to see what the future will be like.”

Over the past two years goHDR has had exclusive access to the world’s first true HDR video camera, built by German company SpheronVR, and has produced a number of short films to showcase the technology. This will be the first time the company has been able to demonstrate its work, using SIM2’s HDR47E monitor, to a wide audience, outside the laboratory.

The film clips produced by goHDR are also available on the company’s website (www.gohdr.com) where they have been specially treated, using a technique called tonemapping, to give an idea of what they would look like on an HDR display.

Note to Editors:
goHDR is a software business, whose niche is to provide advanced data compression algorithms to all those who are developing High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology. Its aim is to be the leader in the software that enables HDR video. For more information, go to www.gohdr.com
