Reduce the cost of creating CD catalogues for products

07.07.2003


Lotura launches CDPrest! a software that companies can use to generate their own multimedia catalogues, up-dating and customising them for their clients. Video, 3D imaging, photos of and instructions for use of the products can be included in the catalogues.



The Gipuzkoan-based company, Lotura (www.lotura.com), has launched the CDPrest! software on to the market, an application that enables companies to create their own products catalogue in multimedia format and their subsequent transfer to a CD in a quick and cheap manner, to such an extent that, once the programme is acquired, the cost of each catalogue will be that of a virgin CD.

This software is designed to help those companies which market a wide range of products and which run up high costs of design and production of multimedia or printed catalogues which become obsolete when the company product range undergoes any change.


By means of a simple and intuitive interface, CDPrest! enables the creation of families and subfamilies of products and the incorporation of required data, such as reference codes, names and prices. End-users may themselves add a description, a list of features, an image of the product, documents with instructions (office and acrobat) and video. The product images can be shown as interactive 3D objets with the possibility of interacting with the object: turning, moving, cutting up, measuring and transverse cutting, amongst others. Moreover, CDPrest! enables the addition, modification or the removal of products from the catalogue, and their transfer to different subfamilies or families.

A navigable multimedia presentation of the catalogue can be shown at the clicking of a button, with either all the contents of the catalogue or with only those parts or data thereof that the end-user has selected, depending on the function of the CD to be used. The presentation can be copied onto a CD-ROM by means of a recorder and will be automatically executed when this disc is inserted into the PC.

CDPrest! provides significant savings for companies, given that their catalogues do not become obsolete simply because there is a change in the product specifications. Nor do they have to depend on external multimedia design agencies each time they wish to create a new catalogue. Moreover, this system enables limited editions of the CD’s within the company itself or, otherwise, commission large editions from CD copying companies, using one of the CD’s generated with CDPrest!. In this way, sales staff can include a catalogue of the whole range of their company products on one CD card.

Lotura offers two versions of the software depending on the level of customisation of the catalogue design: Basic, enabling the user to choose between six different graphic styles, to introduce the company logo and data, a text presenting the catalogue, and the image of the presentation page; Customised, a version of CDPrest! adapted to the needs of the corporate image of the business and with all the sections needed to incorporate their catalogue, including formulas for Internet contact.

Im Focus: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
