Shane McMahon, Chairman of YOU On Demand, commented, "During the first half of 2014 we successfully pivoted the Company's strategy and its resources to prioritize our IPTV, OTT and Mobile platforms. Given the exciting potential of these fast-growing distribution modes, which are increasingly popular amongst China's tech-savvy and most active consumers of entertainment, YOU On Demand expects to continue generating positive momentum from this strategic shift. As a result, we expect to generate both improved operating efficiencies and enhanced financial results during the second half of this year."

YOU On Demand CEO Weicheng Liu, stated, "Building on the growing popularity of our YOU Hollywood App with Huawei device users, Xiaomi OTT Box owners and other early adopters, we recently softly launched our Hollywood App independently via popular app stores and online channels.  We believe select advertising, marketing and social media outreach, combined with word-of-mouth recommendations and endorsements from satisfied App users, will help promote our unique, differentiated service to an appreciative audience of China's most ardent movie fans."

YOU On Demand President & CFO Marc Urbach commented, "During this critical phase in our organization's corporate development, the senior financial and operations teams will continue striving to combine our strong, unlevered balance sheet, with conservative expense management and moderate levels of fixed overhead costs. There are many opportunities that lie ahead and we expect to best leverage these by maintaining our fiscally prudent strategy for the long-term benefit of the Company's shareholders."

Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased to $183,000, up from $51,000 in the year-ago Q2 and up 33% over Q1 2014.   Gross loss for the quarter declined to $674,000, down from $739,000 in the comparable 2013 period.

WebRTC is great technology to build your own communication tools. It will be even more exciting experience it with advanced devices, such as a 360 Camera, 360 microphone, and a depth sensor camera. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Masashi Ganeko, a manager at INFOCOM Corporation, will introduce two experimental projects from his team and what they learned from them. "Shotoku Tamago" uses the robot audition software HARK to track speakers in 360 video of a remote party. "Virtual Teleport" uses a...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.
