iCatch Technology’s new ePTZ image processing solution meets needs of remote vision communication during coronavirus epidemic

Press release

The global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has changed the human-to-human interaction models completely. Many industrial and economic activities have also changed to new norms. As a result, remote video communication has become the most noticed topic recently. The demand of network cameras has also increased for the applications in work from home, distance meetings, or remote lecturing. With the rise of the 5G era and the proliferated development of artificial intelligence applications, the new AI ePTZ image processing solution from iCatch Technology can add intelligent person tracking function to the web-based camera, which improves the performance and efficiency of distance working.

Follow the growth trend of network camera, iCatch Technology’s new AI ePTZ camera solution not only can capture 4K ultra high-definition video images with ultra-wide-angle support, but also

CERN meets quantum technology

Today’s information and communication technology grew out of the invention and development of quantum mechanics during the last century. But, nifty as it is that billions of transistors can be packed into your smartphone or that photons are routed around the internet with the help of lasers, the devices underpinning the “first quantum revolution” merely rely on the weird properties of quantum mechanics – they don’t put them to use directly.


The CERN Quantum Technology Initiative (QTI), which was announced by CERN Director-General Fabiola Gianotti in June, sees CERN join a rapidly-growing global effort to bring about a “second quantum revolution” – whereby phenomena such as superposition and entanglement, which enable

The Lobby is betting on video e-commerce to become ‘QVC meets TikTok’

  • The Lobby, an online marketplace where influencers post shoppable videos reviewing clothing and accessories, made its national debut on Tuesday. 
  • Founder Abigail Holt described The Lobby as “QVC meets TikTok,” with a particular focus on buzzy direct-to-consumer brands, including Solid and Striped, Girlfriend Collective, and Lunya. 
  • “Immediately we knew we needed to be more bullish on video because consumers want video,” Holt said. “We sensed people needed and wanted normalcy and connection … and thought a lot about how do we recreate that feeling.”
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

In a world that now runs entirely on streaming platforms, The Lobby is hitching its wagon to video commerce as the next big big trend in online shopping. 

The Lobby — a digital marketplace described by founder and CEO Abigail Holt as “QVC meets TikTok” — rolled out nationally on Tuesday, bringing its feed of influencer-produced shoppable videos to

Satellite images show what happens when wildfire smoke meets hurricanes

(Images courtesy of NASA Earth Observatory)

The catastrophic wildfires on the West Coast have generated an enormous amount of smoke that have darkened skies across the Bay Area and ruined the air quality around other cities. Prevailing winds have carried that smoke across the United States where it ran into another hazard — Hurricanes Paulette and Sally.

Over a three-day span shown in these images that started Sept. 14, the hurricanes initially kept the skies on the East Coast clear, but as the smoke moved forward, Paulette blocked the smoke and kept it in the Northeast, according to NASA’s Earth Observatory. By Sept. 16, the storm system dissipated and the plume moved farther into the Atlantic. Elsewhere, the NASA images show Hurricane Sally pushing the smoke northward as it flooded the Southeastern United States.

The NASA images above show an abundance and distribution of black carbon. NASA says it is
