July 13, 2006 San Francisco, CA, USA: July 13, 2006. Digislide’s Digismart technology has been nominated today for a World Technology Award in San Francisco. Kathryn Whitlow, Program Director of the 2006 World Technology Summit & Awards with The World Technology Network (WTN), said “On behalf of the extraordinary global membership of the World Technology Network and James P. Clark, our chairman, we are pleased to formally notify you of your nomination for the 2006 World Technology Award in the category of IT Hardware.”
Since ADI assisted with funding Digislide to enable them to exhibi at DEMO 06 and Innovate! Europe this year, Digislide’s Digismart Miniature Projection Technologies have been earning considerable attention from global brands, investors, manufacturers, potential alliance partners, and the world press.
Digismart is essentially a miniature projector that can be integrated with a range of electronic hand held devices, or supplied as a stand alone peripheral. The enhanced functionality that Digismart provides will eliminate the current constraints of viewing an image on a small screen display, allowing the user to project up to an 11 by 17 inch image from a mobile phone, PDA, MP4 player, GPS, hand held gaming device, digital camera or a laptop.
Luceille Outhred, CEO of Digislide said, “Digislide is excited at the attainment of such a prestigious nomination. The World Technology Award nomination is a product of the hard work on behalf of the Digislide team. It both validates the shareholders’ investment, being a testament to their support for this Top 100 Global Innovator Company, and also serves to highlight the reason for the global interest Digislide is now receiving”
Despite the accolades and global attention, Digislide remains focused on its commercial imperatives and are currently speaking with Venture Capital firms, global brands and manufacturers regarding the implementation of their patented Digismart technologies.
