Build and Manage Windows 8 Apps With Beachfront Builder

Innovative mobile video platform is first to fully support native Windows 8 Apps, enabling brands to quickly develop and manage apps across Windows devices

BURBANK, Calif., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Beachfront Media, the owners of the popular video discovery engine MeFeedia, today announced mobile video platform, Beachfront Builder, now makes it possible for content creators to build, deploy and manage Windows 8 apps. Using Beachfront Builder, brands can be among the first to have an app in the Windows Store and reach the millions of people around the world who use Windows every day.

With the most dramatic overhaul of the Windows operating system since 1995, content creators from a variety of industries are making plans to deploy apps to this new mobile-friendly OS and get closer to the consumers who are likely to update their current systems to Windows 8 or go out and buy Windows-enabled devices, including the much anticipated Microsoft Surface. 

The number of platforms that publishers are expected to support continues to grow along with the budget and resources required to build, support and monetize these apps. Beachfront Builder has been designed to resolve this issue by helping video publishers spread content, deliver a new experience to loyal customers, and open new mobile revenue streams across devices and platforms in no time.

"The race to be one of the first to have an app on the new Windows user interface is on.  The roll out of Microsoft's new touch screen tile format introduces a whole new app ecosystem where brands and publishers can get those early coveted spots," said Frank Sinton, Founder and CEO of Beachfront Media. "With Beachfront Builder, we ease the transition and remove the coding nightmare that comes with understanding yet another platform, while also introducing a monetization path."

App creators are offered customization features for branding purposes, and, in addition to integration of pre-existing ad solutions, all apps are supported through video, display, sponsorship, and in-app advertising, providing publishers with a new form of revenue that is both player and format specific.  

Beachfront Builder apps can be developed and deployed within days into the Apple App Store, Google Android Market, Amazon Appstore and now the Windows Store. The debate over which app to develop is now over. At one time, content publishers, brands, and enterprises can have apps available for the iPhone, iPad, Android Phone, Kindle Fire, Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, and Windows RT tablets and computers.

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...

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.
