BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Forum held its Spring 2017 UEFI Seminar and Plugfest last month in Nanjing, China, hosting firmware thought leaders and testing the latest technology—indicating high interest in UEFI in China’s technology market. The UEFI Forum, a non-profit industry standards body responsible for developing, managing and promoting UEFI specifications, co-hosted the event with Byosoft Co., LTD, along with the sponsorship of American Megatrends Inc., ARM, Huawei, Insyde Software, Intel Corporation, Nanjing High-Tech Zone and Phoenix Technologies. The Spring 2017 UEFI Seminar and Plugfest occurred on March 27-31 at the Wanda Hilton Hotel in Nanjing, China and provided firmware thought leaders, developers and researchers an opportunity to learn about the latest firmware innovations and test UEFI platforms and devices. The keynote titled “UEFI Has Promoted the Development of China Computer Industry” was presented by Guangnan Ni from the Chinese Academy of Engineering and a critical force in landing UEFI in China. In anticipation of the first China-based UEFI event in ten years, over 20 new members in China joined the UEFI Forum—indicating significant interest in UEFI technology in the greater China region. Additionally, in attendance from the region were prominent member companies including H3C and Inspur, Lenovo, Loongson Technology Corporation Limited, and Sugon. While the Chinese market has widely adopted UEFI technology in traditional devices like PCs and servers and used it for CPU and OS development, the Forum continues to witness UEFI adoption into IoT, virtual reality, storage, cloud-computing and datacenter platforms. “This event encouraged increased adoption of UEFI as an enabling technology that meets China’s interest in supporting indigenous technologies,” Mark Doran, UEFI Forum President, said. “UEFI is a common framework; it’s a bridge between different market segments and architectures. Ultimately, UEFI creates new opportunities for business and developers and encourages the continued international evolution of the open source community.” Through a collaborative approach with world-class companies, institutions and experts, the UEFI Forum advances innovation in firmware technology standards. These extensible, globally-adopted UEFI specifications bring new functionality and enhanced security to the evolution of devices, firmware and operating systems. The Forum also collaborates with other standards groups that are essential to computing. For more information about the UEFI Forum and current specifications go to www.uefi.org.

The Stingray is an all-in-one smart DSP mixer, utilizing Phoenix's proprietary distributed array technology. Each unit mixes up to four microphone inputs and performs echo canceling, noise canceling, AGC, and other algorithms to enhance your conferencing experience. The Stingray also supports four auxiliary inputs that can be reinforced for local playback. Each unit comes with four 15 Watt speaker amplifiers as well as SIP, USB, and analog interfaces, supporting any kind of conferencing platform. Phoenix also integrated its daisy chain technology into the Stingray. This allows 15 Stingray units to be easily connected to each other, allowing for up to 60 mixed microphone inputs, and the playback of the far end through up to 60 amplified 15 Watt speakers. The daisy chain can be broken into any number of zones using a simple interface setup, making it the perfect device for large rooms that can be partitioned. Each zone can interface independently with its own conferencing application through its built-in SIP, USB, and/or analog interface. The chain of Stingrays can be programmed through a local area network by remotely logging into any unit using a web browser. Programming and controlling can also be done via the unit's front panel display. The Condor is beamforming array designed to be positioned on top or next to your conferencing monitor. It provides clear audio pickup for huddle and mid-sized conference rooms and addresses all the audio pickup needs without the need of running cables to units on the table. The Condor utilizes a multi-microphone array to create audio beams that focus on voice pickup and cancel out noise and echo. It is equipped with analog, USB, and optical interfaces, so that it can easily connect to any UC application and use any type of loudspeakers/sound bars.

Provided is a method and device for removing chemically dissolvable support material from objects created by a three-dimensional printing process. In one exemplary embodiment a tank for holding a cleaning solution has a cleaning section and a fluid handling section, and a full level below a top rim thereof. A generally box-shaped parts basket configured to be removeably installed within the cleaning section of the tank has four fluid impermeable walls, a bottom panel perforated throughout with an array of holes, and an openable top cover, wherein the openable top cover is below the full level of the tank and the bottom panel of the parts basket is supported above a floor of the tank when the parts basket is installed. A fluid pump disposed in a fluid handling section of the main tank is configured to inject a fluid stream into the parts basket at a downward angle with respect to horizontal, and at a lateral angle with respect to a line passing through a center of the parts basket, with sufficient velocity and flow rate to induce a fluid current that circulates around an interior of the parts basket as it continuously descends and exits the parts basket through the perforated bottom panel.

The system comprises a main network situated downstream from a check valve that supplies the sensors, for example, in the form of sprinklers. This main network is subdivided into secondary networks, each secondary network being isolated from the main network by a valve that enables water to be prevented from entering the portions of the network in which it is not needed. The valve is capable not only of compensating for losses in pressure in the network but also for opening itself completely when a fire is detected.
