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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
