HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 14 April 2022 – Recently, the winners of the world-renowned iF Design Award have been announced. TECNO won the iF DESIGN AWARD 2022 in the Product and the Telecommunication categories for the outstanding product design of its Phantom X and CAMON 19 Pro. This marks TECNO’s debut award in the international design competition, reaffirming the brand’s commitment to technological innovation and continual breakthroughs.T1

As one of the most influential industrial design awards in the world, iF DESIGN AWARD is known as the “Oscar of product design” for its “independent, rigorous and reliable” screening standards and its impact. It serves as a benchmark for global industrial design and development trends. Therefore, winning the iF DESIGN AWARD means being recognized by international authorities in industrial design.  This year, a record number of close to 11,000 entries from 57 countries was submitted at iF DESIGN AWARD. Albeit the tough competition, Phantom X and CAMON 19 Pro outperformed other entries, winning over the 132-member jury of independent design experts worldwide, the largest jury ever assembled.

Phantom X is TECNO’s all-round flagship imaging series. It uses a 6.7-inch 70° curved-edged display screen with a patterned glass back. The exquisite craftsmanship allows PHANTOM X to present a unique texture and elegant taste in the interlaced light and shadow. In addition, the definition of the side arc angle of the mobile phone is 36.5°, offering the most ergonomically comfortable grip.T2

CAMON 19 Pro is a high-performance, high-value smartphone designed for young fashionistas. It will be launched in June with TECNO’s latest generation of the CAMON 19 series. This series adopts an ultra-narrow frame design and an ingenious dual-ring triple-camera layout. The jury of the iF DESIGN AWARD remarked, “It adopts a borderless design to create a fresh borderless ultra-narrow screen experience for users. The powerful camera with a double ring and three cameras perfectly balances the camera and back panel aesthetic design to create the ultimate overall feeling. The metal double ring is perfectly integrated with the strong and professional triple camera using anodizing process, bringing a sense of professional performance with the double ring and triple camera.”

“We are extremely honored to be awarded this prestigious international award for our Phantom X and CAMON 19 Pro. Our dream has always been to revolutionize the landscape of smartphone photography for our users around the world, closing the gap between the professional camera and smartphone photography, while constantly pushing the evolution of design language to bring users up-to-date exterior ID design. In the future, we will remain committed to driving further changes in mobile imaging and the design language evolution.” Stephan Ha, TECNO General Manager said.

Ryan Kavanaugh’s Proxima Studios Announces Start of Production of Skill House Starring Bryce Hall, Directed and Written by Josh Stolberg – Writer of Jigsaw and Spiral – of the Saw Franchise

First-of-its-kind film to be “listed” on the entertainment stock exchange allowing fans to participate and invest in the film via ESX.io

LOS ANGELES, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Based on an original idea by EGOT Megaproducer (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) Nominee Ryan Kavanaugh, Skill House is the first of a franchise and is slated to start principal production in June 2022 with an expected early 2023 release date. It is financed and controlled by Proxima Studios and written and directed by horror film legend Josh Stolberg, co-writer of horror films such as Spiral: From the Book of Saw (starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson), Jigsaw, Piranha 3D, Sorority Row, as well as the next Saw film (tentatively titled Saw X) and starring social media phenomenon Bryce Hall, who is one of the world’s most-followed Social Media Stars with over 50 Million Followers across his social media channels.

Skill House will be the first film to be “listed” on the entertainment stock exchange (“ESX“), a first-of-its-kind platform allowing users to invest in the film and trade in or out of the film and its upside.

Starring social media personality Bryce Hall, Skill House takes a stab at social media influencers and will be an unflinching take on fame and what new celebrities are willing to do to attain it. It will be shot in the Sway House, a mansion in Bel Air, made famous by many of Tik Tok’s biggest stars. It will skewer the landscape of young celebrities who will do anything for a “click.”

“I’ve worked with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Chris Rock and Sam Jackson, Carrie Fisher and Dwayne Johnson… but my kids are more excited about this project than any other I’ve worked on,” said Stolberg. “Working with Bryce Hall and Ryan Kavanaugh, this is sure to be a first of a new horror genre. These social media personalities are the new Hollywood, and they are reinventing what it means to be a star. When a young kid from Maryland, like Bryce, with nothing but a cell phone and a ring light, can attract tens of millions of followers on Tik Tok and Instagram, it evens the playing field for everyone. But there’s a dark side to this new entertainment landscape, and I’m excited to flip that rock over.”

“The film will be a “hard R” horror film and will have a gritty approach to what it takes to succeed in a business that relies on fans “liking you.” Stolberg added, “there’s nothing I love more than writing a watercooler kill scene… and we’re already over budget with the amount of blood we’re going to use. While this concept could play for parody, I’ll be taking a more serious approach and leaning into scares and horror over humor. I’m not pulling punches. I’ve been given the green light to go for it. And I can’t wait!”

Kavanaugh, the 24th highest-grossing producer of all time, has produced and or financed over 200 films such as Fast and Furious 3,4,5,6, Social Network, 300, Mamma Mia!, Limitless, Fighter, Zombieland, and many more. Kavanaugh also previously owned Rogue Pictures, which launched over 60 horror movies, including Strangers, The Unborn, and My Soul to Take.

“This film intends to break the boundary between the short-form social media phenomenon and long-form content,” said Kavanaugh. “Bryce is one of the most recognized and polarizing influencers with over 50 million followers and will certainly be a crossover star. The film digs deep into the human psyche and the new generation’s thirst for stardom, asking how far they would go? It will be bloody, it will be dark, and it will certainly be talked about.”

Daniel Herther, who oversees production and creative development at Proxima, will serve as executive producer. Before joining Proxima, Herther produced the Nic Cage thriller Inconceivable and held executive roles at Relativity Media and WB’s Hollywood Gang (300).

This will be the first time fans can actually invest into a feature film and participate in the upside of the film via ESX.

Bryce Hall is repped by Brad Baskin of Panther Management and Ryan Kavanaugh and Proxima are repped by Neil Sacker.

With a stronger global marketplace, new and existing customers have a more seamless and personalized experience

SAN FRANCISCO, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Sendoso, the leading sending management platform, today announced updates to its marketplace offerings and platform to further elevate personalized gift sending, globally and locally. Enhancements include more robust global address confirmation and validation to improve deliverability, theme management to create a better brand experience by allowing sales and marketing teams to organize their sends through a variety of campaigns. Additionally, the company has expanded its marketplace with a partnership with Goldbelly, the first platform for national food e-commerce and online marketplace for the best food gifts. By offering a selection of Goldbelly’s best sellers, Sendoso is excited to further create meaningful, engaging moments with its customer base through the power of food.

Customer successes are top priority with Sendoso’s enhancements and partnerships, and our global hand-picked merchants are the perfect partners to meet this demand. Sendoso has the most exclusive marketplace in the industry, spanning unique and diverse integrations and vendors from jigsaw puzzles, succulents, and candles to cocktail kits, brownies and macaroons. In fact, in 2021 food & beverage made up 90% of the sends from Sendoso’s marketplace partnerships, and food alone made up 64%.

The addition of Goldbelly to Sendoso’s carefully curated network of merchants provides an even more diverse selection of gifting options that will help achieve a valuable connection for the sender and recipient in a cluttered, digital world. This news comes on the heels of several marketplace additions in 2021, including a partnership with Square and Fellow, and inviting several global marketplace additions such as Mitchell & Son, Green Factory, ReserveBar, Tea Forte, Ember and others.

“I’m thrilled to expand our global marketplace even more by giving our customers increased opportunities to continue to create greater connections through thoughtful gift sending,” said Kris Rudeegraap, CEO and co-founder, Sendoso. “Now our customers will never have to worry if a recipient will receive a gift or not with our more robust Global Address Confirmation and Validation. Also, being on the sales side for so many years before founding Sendoso, I can appreciate the need for customized themes for campaigns. Our new Theme Management capability will provide that perfect touch of personalization that teams need with various campaigns.”

In addition to expanding its global marketplace offerings, Sendoso’s new platform updates support a smoother and more intelligent sender and receiver experience with the following:

  • Enriched Global Address Confirmation and Validation: Address request capabilities have been enhanced to further improve deliverability of physical items globally. In addition to address confirmation updates that ensure gifts can easily cross borders, Sendoso also now validates addresses to ensure necessary information has been provided. If an unverified or invalid address is detected, for example, the platform will prompt the sender to update, saving the sender from the manual work of requesting the information themselves.
  • Theme Management: Leading the way for sales and marketing teams to make impressions at scale, this new feature allows Sendoso customers to create unified seasonal, global or local themes. Brands now have complete control in managing multiple campaigns throughout the year into a cohesive, streamlined story or experience for each. For example, if a customer decides to launch a holiday campaign, they can easily leverage Theme Management to ensure the emails for those sends will be consistent with the selected campaign.

As the industry’s most advanced sending management platform, the latest innovative features ensure Sendoso’s customers are leading the way with personalized and connected sales and marketing engagement.

Brands, more than ever, are seeing the critical value of personal engagement through Sendoso as research shows that sending is gaining traction, as it has increased by more than 80% on the platform.

The LeddarEngine™ platform is powered by LeddarTech’s LCA3 SoC and state-of-the-art modular software, enabling improved sensor performance with the lowest development time

QUEBEC CITY, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LeddarTech®, a global leader in providing the most flexible, robust and accurate ADAS and AD sensing technology, is pleased to announce the availability of a completely new version of the LeddarEngine software to enable and accelerate LiDAR sensor development.

The LeddarEngine sets a new standard for developing highly integrated and flexible solid-state LiDAR solutions optimized for high-volume production. This complete solution comprises the LeddarCore™ LCA3 system on chip (SoC) and LeddarSP™ signal processing.

This new version specifically introduces several new integration tiers for the LeddarEngine software and compatibility with new hardware platforms. LeddarTech is introducing a separation of the control, signal processing and point-cloud processing, which can be used independently or in combination, enabling customers to maintain greater control over their final solution.

LiDAR developers that presently have signal processing toolchains implemented for their current products will benefit from using only the control kernel for easier and faster integration of the LeddarCore into their next-generation products. Tier 1-2s, system integrators and new LiDAR makers will still benefit from the complete offering by leveraging LeddarTech’s proprietary signal processing and expertise.

This version of the LeddarEngine is compatible with Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, in addition to the already supported Renesas R-Car SoC. Furthermore, the porting to other platforms and operating systems is now easier than ever, thanks to this new modular architecture which improves the separation of hardware and software.

Key Benefits

  • Easier integration into existing architectures, enabling retrofit to improve cost, power consumption and size
  • Enables Tier 1-2s and LiDAR makers to leverage existing signal processing toolchain and to develop their algorithms
