LONDON, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Beefeater Studio24, launched by Beefeater 24 and in partnership with Last.fm, lets people mix their most memorable Instagram photos with their favorite music tracks via Last.fm to create a one of a kind record cover. The record cover is unique to each person as they choose the artwork that overlays their photo - themes include Pop, Electronica and Folk - and personalize their cover to create something distinct and unique to them.

Record covers celebrate that perfect moment in time when great memories combined with good music create an unforgettable experience. With Beefeater Studio24, these experiences can live on as they are immortalized in a personalized record cover, creating the soundtrack to someone's life.

Beefeater 24 Brand Director Paco Recuero said: "With Beefeater Studio24 we want to inspire people to capture, celebrate and share a moment in time that means something to them. We want them to bring the same creative inspiration to their album covers that helped our master distiller create Beefeater 24, bringing together fine botanicals and exotic teas for the perfect length of time, 24 hours, to create a smooth and sophisticated gin. Like our gin, Beefeater Studio24 captures inspired moments perfectly."

Photographer and co-founder of the Mobile Photo Group, Sion Fullana, who is using Beefeater Studio24 to share his perfect moments says, "The site is an easy and fun way to bring together your favorite images and songs, to create striking record covers that convey your most meaningful stories. Photography and music combine together to create an ever-lasting memory." Sion's record covers can be viewed by searching for his Beefeater Studio24 user name, 'Sion FJ'.

All record covers are available to view in the 'Record Collection' section on the site. The site allows you to view record covers by user name or by track name and allows you to share your record cover with friends on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+. Also on the site is a collection of contemporary gin cocktails which are timed and mixed to perfection - this precise moment is captured in an album cover with the accompanying recipe.

Creating a record cover on Beefeater Studio24 could not be simpler:

1. Visit beefeaterstudio24.com and log in to your Instagram account

2. Choose an Instagram image from your account and select a track from Last.fm which suits your image

3. Personalize your album by choosing your album artwork and editing the title or changing the text colour

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
