VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- Digital Shelf Space Corp. (the "Company" or "DSS") (TSX VENTURE: DSS)(PINKSHEETS: DTSRF) announced today that the Company and Gaiam Americas, Inc. ("Gaiam") have mutually agreed to terminate the distribution agreement between the two parties for the Company's flagship product GSP RUSHFIT. Terms of this termination agreement remain private and confidential.
"We have worked very closely with the DRTV team at Gaiam over the past 8 months. However, Gaiam and DSS have agreed that now is the time for DSS to retake control over all aspects of distribution with respect to GSP RUSHFIT" said Jeffrey Sharpe President and CEO for DSS. "The collaboration with Gaiam has been successful so far. In fact, GSP RUSHFIT had its best single sales day in the history of the product on Amazon.com earlier this month. However, DSS believes that, by taking back control of the distribution, there is even greater potential, and we believe we can become one of the real leaders in the category."
As a result of this development, DSS (in cooperation with Gaiam) is in the process of transitioning the operations of the gsprushfit.com website back to the Company, re-establishing a direct selling relationship with Amazon.com, and taking on directly all vendors (including warehousing and fulfillment, call centers and media buyers). This transition should be completed by the end of February, 2014.
In addition to transitioning the distribution of GSP RUSHFIT and the day to day cash flows back to DSS, the Company is also in the process of completing the new infomercial for the PGA TOUR's TOURAcademy Home Edition, with final production having taken place the week of January 6, 2014, with an anticipated completion date of the end of the month. DSS will look to begin test marketing of the new infomercial leading into the spring and the beginning of the golf season. TOURAcademy Home Edition is the TourAcademy's comprehensive golf improvement program. Players at all skill levels take nine lessons at home then hit the range where they follow an 8-week, step-by-step practice plan to master their full swing and learn stroke-saving short game techniques. The program comes complete with two training aids, a contact bag and alignment sticks, and the TOURAcademy instruction manual and practice guide.
GSP RUSHFIT was designed to appeal to the massive global audience with an interest in MMA and MMA training methods as a complete home fitness workout program. GSP RUSHFIT combines three of the hottest fitness trends. The complete program uses various MMA conditioning exercises, intense circuit style training and body weight training for fitness consumers to build muscle, cut weight and get in shape. GSP RUSHFIT is unlike any fitness program available. This program was carefully designed to give the most efficient and effective workout possible at home with minimal equipment. When consumers see how hard internationally respected athlete Georges St-Pierre pushes himself, working out alongside him will motivate and inspire consumers to push themselves harder, and achieve more than they ever thought possible. Georges St-Pierre has dedicated his life to Mixed Martial Arts and is regarded as one of the top conditioned athletes not only in the sport, but also in the world. Fitness fans everywhere can benefit directly from the same commitment GSP has made to his own health and fitness.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
