VeUP launches Advisor services to fuel growth for AWS focused start-ups

VeUP has launched a new Advisor service range dedicated to Technology, Alliance and Marketing programs that fuel rapid growth for Amazon Web Services (AWS) focused start-ups. The VeUP Advisor services offer high- potential ISV and SaaS businesses regular guidance from VeUP’s industry leading AWS experts to accelerate their growth through architectural advice, go-to-market strategy and alliance management. Technology Advisor supports start-ups with defining their AWS and product roadmap, technology adoption and optimisation of costs to contribute to successful cloud initiatives. Alliance Advisor connects start-ups with alliance experts to analyse and improve the scope and effectiveness of their AWS partnership, increase co-sell revenue and develop rapid growth strategies through regular advisory sessions. Marketing Advisor helps early-stage companies kickstart their marketing function,

building their brand and identity to help reach and engage key potential customers and markets through VeUP’s insights and experience. The services are also available via the AWS Marketplace, allowing AWS partners to engage quickly and effectively with the VeUP services model. “As start-ups prepare for rapid growth, they are too often left without the proper support or guidance to forge strong partnerships, develop their tech optimally or market their brand effectively,” said Simon Turner, head of services for VeUP. “These shortcomings can be make or break for an early-stage business, which is why VeUP has launched our Advisor offerings to provide a platform for these companies to thrive. “VeUP’s game changing experts can equip start-ups with the tools and knowledge they need to take their business to the next level, by offering regular guidance and touchpoints to strategically deliver on growth plans.”

Vestel launches large format UHD displays

Vestel Visual Solutions has launched the XN+ and XD+ Series UHD signage displays in large format screen sizes of 75”, 86” and 98”. Built on an ultra-high-speed system on chip (SoC) core running Vestal Android Platform 400 (MB400VS), both ranges make CMS deployment and content management easy while maximising display impact with 500nits (XN+) and 400nits (XD+) brightness. “With digital signage becoming pervasive in retail and leisure, grabbing audience attention means cutting through the visual noise,” said senior product manager Tim Mathews. “With the new XN+ and XD+ models, we have brought our proven high-brightness, UHD resolution display technology to super-sized screens that make the biggest impact in any commercial environment.” Ideal for 24/7 use in retail, entertainment or control rooms, the XN+ Series uses an IPS panel delivering a 50,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio across a 178-degree viewing angle to maximise audience engagement across the largest commercial spaces. The ultra-narrow bezel and shallow depth minimise visual

hardware to further enhance content impact. The SoC supports Android and HTML-5 systems for CMS providers and integrators to manage content without the cost or complexity of an OPS module and external CMS engine. For further flexibility, the XN+ Series has 1 x HDMI output, 4 x HMDI inputs with CEC, Lan, Wi-Fi and multiple USB sockets for additional hardware sources or cloud content. Featuring a SD slot for additional onboard storage and SPDIF optical audio outputs. Vestel’s display set-up menus and features, such as Signal Failover to create a default banner or logo in case of lost source, daisy-chain compatibility, and easy VESA mounting make installation simple and flexible. The XD+ Series brings all the features of the XN+ units in a more affordable package. Ideal for corporate, public premises, entertainment venues and control rooms, the XD+ Series offers 400nits brightness and 16/7 operation in the same ultra-sharp UHD resolution large screen sizes. The XD+ models in 75”, 86” and 98” screen sizes are available now, with the XN+ 75”, 86” and 98” available to resellers and integrators.
