Color confidence powers downloads of AkzoNobel's Visualizer app past 20 million

Color confidence powers downloads of AkzoNobel's Visualizer app past 20 million

Giving people the simple pleasure of making confident color choices has propelled downloads of AkzoNobel's Visualizer decorating app past the 20 million mark.

The award-winning digital color tool was first launched in 2014 and is now available in more than 60 markets. It allows consumers to visualize walls in different shades in real time, before applying a single drop of paint.

To celebrate the latest milestone, special events have been organized in two of Europe's most vibrant cities - London and Amsterdam. Members of the public are being given the opportunity to virtually paint museums at London's Trafalgar Square and Amsterdam's Museumplein by using the Visualizer.

"We're delighted that the Visualizer is proving so popular and has established itself as a leading digital tool for color," said Corinne Avelines, AkzoNobel's Director of Digital and e-Commerce. "Finding the right color can be a stressful experience, which is why 21% of those who start the paint journey drop out before purchase. The Visualizer is designed to take away the worry of choosing color and make decorating fun again."

The unique patent-pending computer vision technology behind the app enables users to apply realistic virtual paint to their walls without affecting picture frames and other furniture. It cleverly paints around them as you move your smartphone or tablet around the room.

"Some consumers struggle to visualize what a color will look like in their homes," adds Corinne. "Thanks to our unrivalled color matching expertise, the Visualizer gives consumers the confidence to try new colors, quickly see the potential end result and share it with friends to get their views."

The success of the app has so far seen it generate more than 400 million visualizations for consumers all over the world. South America and Turkey lead the way in terms of markets where the tools have been used the most, while it has just become available in the Middle East. A launch in Greece is expected soon.

The special outdoor events are being held on June 22. They will give people in Meridian Steps in Westfield Stratford the chance to virtually paint a building at Amsterdam's Museumplein, while visitors to the Zuidas area of the Dutch capital will be able to add their own digital design to Trafalgar Square in London by using augmented reality technology. The results will be displayed on big screens set up at each location. 

To download the Visualizer, visit the iOS App Store or Google Play and search for Visualizer along with the name of your local AkzoNobel paint brand, such as Dulux Visualizer, Flexa Visualizer, Dulux Valentine Visualizer or Alba Visualizer.

اہلیان مومی اور شالی ارکاری کے ساتھ سلیم خان کا سوتیلی ماں جیسا سلوک

اہلیان مومی اور شالی ارکاری کے ساتھ سلیم خان کا سوتیلی ماں جیسا سلوک

اہلیان مومی اور شالی ارکاری کے ساتھ سلیم خان کا سوتیلی ماں جیسا سلوک

منہاج الدین
 ان دنوں سلیم خان اور ان کے حواریوں کی جانب سے یہ واویلا کیا جارہا ہے کہ مومی ویلی میں ترقیاتی کاموں کا جال بچھایا گیا ہے اور سلیم کی حکومت میں ریکارڈ ترقیاتی کام کئے گئے ہیں حالانکہ حقیقت اس کے برعکس ہے۔کیونکہ سال 2015ء میں سلیم خان نے ایک پائپ لائن  پینے کے پانی کے لئے اعلان کیا  اور کنٹریکٹ اپنے ایک رشتہ دار کو دیا تھا۔ کمیونٹی کی طرف سے یہ اسرار کیا گیا کہ جس چشمے کو سلیکٹ کیا گیا ہے وه پینے کے قابل نہیں اور اسکا لیبارٹری رپورٹ بھی موجود ہے جس میں اس چشمے کو مضر صحت قرار دیا گیا ہے۔ مگر سلیم  خان اور ٹھیکہ دار نے ایک نہ سنا کیونکہ وه چشمہ نزدیک تھا اور کم خرچ میں پورا ہوتا تھا  اور کمیشن کی مد میں خطیر رقم بچتا تھا۔ اسکا رپورٹ بھی نیوز چینل پر آیا تھا مگر قوم کی میموری کمزور ہے۔

اب یہ حال ہے کہ کروڑوں کی لاگت سے جو پانی پینے کے لئے لایا گیا تھا وه اب استعمال کے قابل نہیں ہے اور لوگ اسے واشنگ اور دوسرے گھریلو ضروت کے لئے استعمال کرنے پر مجبور ہیں۔ دوسری طرف  مومی میں موجود گورنمنٹ سکول کو اپ گریٹ کرنے اعلان کیا تھا اور تین بار ناقص میٹیریل کی وجہ سے اس بلڈنگ کو ناکام قرار دیا گیا تھا مگر آخر میں تعلقات کا سہارا لیکر سے منظور کروایا مگر اب تک اسٹاف کے بےغیر خالی بلڈنگ پڑا ہے۔

ادھر شالی ارکاری میں سکول بنانے کا اعلان کیا اور بعد میں وہاں پر موجود آغاخان سکول کے بلڈنگ کوہی نجی معاہدے کے تحت لیکر گورنمنٹ ہائی سکول سفید ارکاری سے دو اساتذہ کو شالی میں ٹرانسفر کروایا اور لوگوں سے کہا گیا کہ اس سکول کو مڈل سکول کا درجہ دیا گیا ہے اور بعد میں پتہ چلا کہ شالی میں کوئی سکول کی منظوری نہیں ہوئی ہے اور جو ٹیچر ارکاری سے شالی ٹرانسفر  کئے گئے ہیں وہ ای ڈی او  ایجوکیشن کی خصوصی منظوری سے ہوئی ہے اور کمیونیٹی سکول کو ٹیویشن سینٹر کا درجہ دیا گیا ہے جو علاقے کے عوام اور نوجوانون کی مستقبل کے ساتھ کھیلنے کے مترادف ہے اور اگر یہ کام نیک نیتی سے بھی کیا  گیا ہے تو مڈل سکول کو اساتذہ کسطرح چلا پائیں گے۔ اور یہ کارہائے نمایاں سلیم خان کی سربراہی میں شالی ارکای میں انجام دیا جارہا ہے جہاں ایک ٹیچر ہفتے میں 72 کلاس لینے پر مجبور ہے۔

اور سفید ارکاری میں دو ٹیچر کم ہونے کی صورت میں وہاں بھی بچوں کی تعلیم متاثر ہو رہی ہے۔ مگر اس ملک میں لوگ اپنے سیاسی مقاصد کے لئے ہر طرح کے حربے استعمال کر رہے ہیں۔ ان کو اگر فکر ہے تو اپنے کرسی کی ہے قوم کے معماروں کے مستقبل دوئو پر لگ جائے یا پھر قوم کی جذبات کے ساتھ کھیلا جائے، ہمارے سیاسی نمائندہ گاہ کو کوئی فرق نہیں پڑتا۔

JazzCash and NBP Launch Pay-to-CNIC Option

JazzCash and NBP Launch Pay-to-CNIC Option

JazzCash and the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) have partnered to launch ‘Pay to CNIC’, an integrated service that allows NBP account holders to transfer funds to any individual with a valid CNIC; anywhere in Pakistan. Funds remitted through this integration can be collected from JazzCash’s agents present nationwide.

Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Chief Digital and Financial Services Officer – Jazz, talking about the partnership, said, “As we move towards the digital future, JazzCash is leading the way with integrated partnerships and cutting edge products and services that are designed to facilitate the masses and build safe, sustainable bridges between the unbanked and banked population of Pakistan.”

NBP has enabled its account holders to transfer money (Pay-to-CNIC) through JazzCash to an individual’s CNIC within seconds, making it a convenient and safe digital transfer of funds particularly from the banked to the un-banked masses. All of this can be done through the NBP Digital App, a Mobile App for NBP account holders, which can be downloaded on any smartphone. Additionally, specifically for users without a smartphone, JazzCash has empowered NBP branches across Pakistan to conduct Pay–to-CNIC transactions on behalf of NBP Account Holders through a Web-Portal Interface.

A large percentage of NBP account holders are employed in the government sector, and are based away from home.  Being able to transfer funds to their family and/or any other individual who is un-banked is vital for them. The receiver will be notified of the transaction through an SMS and can collect the funds from any nearby JazzCash agent by conducting a BVS Verification. With a wide network of JazzCash Agents throughout the country and advanced digital products, JazzCash is revolutionizing the way people bank and conduct financial transactions. With a monthly receiving limit up to Rs50, 000 per individual, Pay-to-CNIC aims at enhancing access to NBP Account Holders to remit funds to unbanked individuals.

Pay-to-CNIC is functional at NBP Branches through Web-Portal Interface, however, the service will be active on NBP Digital App in a few weeks. In the past, JazzCash has also collaborated with Bank Alfalah for a similar service. The idea is to forge partnerships to bridge the prevalent divide between banked and unbanked segment.

First in history, #Kalash man nominated for minority seat by PTI

First in history, #Kalash man nominated for minority seat by PTI

For the first time in the country's 70-year history, a man from the Kalash community has been nominated for a minority seat in one of the country's legislatures, it emerged on Wednesday.

Wazir Zada, who hails from Chitral, has been awarded a ticket for a reserved minority seat in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).

According to PTI leader Atif Khan, the party has named Ravi Kumar as their top choice and Kalash man Wazir Zada has been listed as their second choice on the priority list submitted to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

It is the first time a member of the Kalash community, which is Pakistan's smallest ethno-religious group, has been nominated for a seat in the provincial assembly.

Wazir Zada is well known for his social and political services to the community. He has worked with zeal to bring together the Muslim and Kalash communities and for the social uplifting and infrastructural development of the region.

Appreciating PTI's gesture, he said the party has won the hearts of his people and he hopes that he is given a chance to be a representative in KP Assembly and bring to light the myriad problems the community and its near-extinct culture is facing.

Kalash decline
The National Commission on Human Rights had last year sounded the alarm about the Kalash community in a report in which it noted that the numbers of the group were only around 4,000 and cited “unwilling conversions and cajoled marriages with non-Kalash” as being among the immediate threats facing the community.

The report also referred to environmental stressors such as the denial of land rights which has played havoc with the pattern of their lives.

The younger generation, already deprived of adequate educational facilities, has no choice but to study from textbooks meant for adherents of the majority faith, which amounts to what the NCHR chairman described as “conversion through subtle indoctrination”.

The fact that there is no written Kalasha script has further endangered the preservation of their heritage.

Illegal logging has increased the frequency of flash floods in the valleys where they reside, and the mushrooming of hotels in the scenic location violates the Kalash’s customary property rights.

Moreover, the growing tourist traffic to the area, drawn by the community’s unique rituals and its laidback culture, has brought out some of the worst instincts of the Pakistani public.

LG V35 #ThinQ: A Faster, Smarter V Series Phone

LG V35 #ThinQ: A Faster, Smarter V Series Phone

LG’s Award-Winning Platform Updated with Latest Mobile Processor, Camera, AI Features and DTS:X

OPPO Find X Exploration at the Edge of Smartphone Possibilities

OPPO Find X Exploration at the Edge of Smartphone Possibilities

Karachi: OPPO, a leading Global Smartphone Brand dedicated to providing products infused with art and innovative technology, this week officially announced Find X, marking the return of its highly regarded flagship Find series. OPPO Find X launches on the evening of June 19 local time at the world famous Louvre in Paris. It will be launched soon in South Asia. 

Previously, the Find series of smartphones brought about many firsts to the industry. Four years on, OPPO has announced to the world a number of exciting new technologies. These ideas, at the edge of smartphone possibilities, will help define Find X and future generations of OPPO smartphones to come.

5x Dual-Camera Zoom 
As one of the forerunner phone brands to make "photography" a key R&D direction, OPPO has been advancing photography technologies for years. 

OPPO announced the exclusive “5x Dual Camera Zoom” technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. Inspired by the submarine’s periscope, “5x Dual Camera Zoom” technology utilizes a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. The housing for the telephoto lens applies a periscope-style structure so that the lens has enough space for a deep zoom with its angle rotated 90 degrees. A periscope-style prism then directs the light into the camera by 90 degrees and sends the image through the telephoto lens when the user zooms in. 

Thanks to the periscope-style construction, the new dual-camera guarantees a better performance while at the same time keeps the device thin. The 5x dual camera module is only 5.7mm thick, which is even 10 percent thinner than a traditional 2x optical zoom lens in a smartphone. 

Super VOOC, Fully Charged in 15 mins
OPPO’s VOOC Flash Charge is widely-acknowledged as the safest and fastest charge technology in the world. The most iconic version of OPPO’s fast charging technology is Super VOOC Flash Charge, released at MWC 2016. Based on a brand new low voltage pulse algorithm and exclusive customized super battery developed by OPPO, it can fully charge a 2500 mAh battery within 15 minutes. 

3D Structured Light + 5G Network 
In January 2018, OPPO announced the 5G pilot program in cooperation with Qualcomm Technologies. Later on May 10, the OPPO Global Research Institute (Shenzhen) successfully demonstrated the World's First 5G Video Call Demo using 3D Structured Light Technology. 

The demonstration reproduced a 3D portrait image on a remote receiver, using portrait information collected from the structured-light 3D camera, on an OPPO smartphone and 5G NR terminal prototypes by Qualcomm Technologies. 5G network and 3D structured light technology provide consumers with potentially lifestyle-changing innovations such as Secure Payment, 3D Reconstruction, AR, and Gaming, etc.

The Find X revives the Find series and carries the spirit of OPPO’s continuous exploration. The company is committed to providing innovative application scenarios for new technologies in the future, with a particular focus on user needs, for our consumers around the world.

This year 102 nominees have been shortlisted for 14 awards with Jazz being the sole representative from Pakistan. The awards are spread across seven categories: “Mobile Tech,” “Consumer,” “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” “Device,” “4YFN,” “Social Good,” and “Outstanding Achievement.”The GSMA Asia Mobile Awards are judged by more than 60 world-leading independent experts, analysts, journalists, academics and, in some cases, mobile operator representatives.

Launched in partnership with the Capital Administration and Development Division (CA&DD) and the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE), the ‘Jazz Smart School’ programme introduces a smart learning solution to the traditional schooling system through a digital blended learning platform. The objective of the programme is to improve the quality of instruction in the public sector schools that otherwise do not have access to state-of-the-art technological tools and devices.

“Being nominated by an honorable, international body at one of the most prestigious awards of the telecom industry, allows Jazz Smart School program to gain international exposure,” said Aamir Ibrahim, CEO – Jazz. “Part of our ‘Make Your Mark’ initiative, we would like to push this programme to schools nationwide, so more students can benefit from digital learning.”

So far the programme has been implemented across 75 female schools in the federal capital of Pakistan, Islamabad, where more than 20,000 female students and 500 female teachers are already benefitting from digital content and lessons designed to inculcate a better understanding of concepts. The programme directly addresses SDG 4 – Quality Education, SDG 5 – Gender Equality and SDG 9 – Industry Innovation & Infrastructure.

“FDE has been working with the team over past nine months and we have seen how the Jazz Smart School programme has positively impacted learning outcomes of thousands of female students in our schools. The programme is aligned with our long term goals and we hope to expand it even further,” added Hasnat Qureshi DG – FDE.

“Since the launch of the programme, we have seen how it has empowered teachers and engaged students in all schools. It has been fascinating to see 45-year old teachers, who had never touched a computer before, overcoming their fear and using technology in their classrooms. 65% of our schools are located in rural areas, and for them it has been a life-changing experience. This collective effort will be key to attaining sustainable development goals,” said Hira Zainab, Head of Outreach and Engagement, Knowledge Platform.

Jazz has been a recipient of another GSMA organized international awards, when JazzCash was recognized as the “Best Mobile Product, Application or Service for Women in Emerging Markets” at Global Mobile Awards 2017, hosted at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
