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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
