The Faith-Based Online Social Media Network - cross.tv - Goes Global

BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/22/09 -- Editors note: Videos are included with this release.

'cross.tv', the first faith-based multilingual online social networking community has gone global.

The unique, interactive communication model of www.cross.tv allows members and visitors to access the site in more than twenty languages. Registered members can communicate in their native language through the use of an advanced language filtering system. Membership currently spans over 100 countries.

The online community combines the best of social networking with high quality HD streaming and a multilingual communications platform.

Founded by Andreas Kisslinger and Stefan Jager, currently residing in Vienna, Austria, cross.tv is quickly becoming the social network of choice for many Christians around the world.

"We allow people around the world to be easily united on a faith-based community platform in a way that has not been done before anywhere to our knowledge," said Kisslinger. "Users are able to post and read in their own native language and at the same time connect with thousands around the world, present their own ideas and projects, as well as find out about others."

"The wide range of functionality and media sharing opportunities enable ministries to reach more people in a greater efficient (and statistically trackable) manner. We enable people around the world to share their God given creativity and audio-visualized ideas," he added.

cross.tv has developed many applications specifically designed with the cross.tv community in mind. One such new feature, introduced in February of 2009, includes a never before developed background designer tool. Users can create a background page that is unique to their tastes and moods. The feature also supports a wide range of design functionalities, including the ability to match colors and styles in keeping with corporate marketing campaigns and logos.

Users are free to upload videos, pictures, publish blogs, add friends and develop their own sub-networks for their families, churches, ministries or projects. They can also communicate with friends and members instantaneously through the cross.box tool, which allows instant message functions and media management.

Unlike other social networking websites such as Facebook and MySpace, having a dedicated online content monitoring team helps cross.tv offer a safe and clean community that can be accessed by all ages. All uploaded content are screened to ensure they maintain high standards and conform to family-friendly values.

High standards are not only found in the values cross.tv upholds, but also with the website development and video content produced by cross.tv. Their first commercial, entitled: "My.Space.Book.Flick.Tube" was recently awarded the prestigious Silver Telly Award.

Founded in 1979, the Telly Awards is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs and the finest in film and video productions. Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world. cross.tv is now a proud part of that heritage. Their second commercial: "Around the World in 60 Seconds" is set to launch in August 2009. Both videos can be found on YouTube and on www.cross.tv.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
