LegacyBuilder Releases New Rapid Sync

Desktop uploader extends automatic media management and storytelling capabilities of intuitive multimedia platform for families

DALLAS, March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LegacyBuilder.com, a private web platform that allows families to make the most of their media and time, today announced the launch of Rapid Sync. Rapid Sync allows LegacyBuilder users to sync photos and videos from their computer with the click of a button. Once media is added to a user's account, LegacyBuilder automatically organizes it into a series of events on a private, interactive family timeline based on the information in the photos and the responses to questions users answer within the site.

LegacyBuilder President Clint Lee believes that with the growth of the digital age, parents now have a new dilemma: how to manage the sheer volume of digital media generated and extract meaningful memories without investing a lot of time and effort. And while many people default to social media for sharing ­- 53% of social media users posted original photos in 2013; 23% posted videos ­- the immediate and fleeting nature of platforms like Facebook and Instagram doesn't lend itself to recording memories in a narrative or easily accessible way. Anyone who has tried to scroll through five years of Facebook posts quickly discovers this.

That's where LegacyBuidler comes in. It syncs all of a user's photos and organizes them in one place, then takes all of the "now" moments from their favorite social sites and sifts out the profound ones. They turn these moments into events on a private timeline to be shared with family and close connections. In this way, LegacyBuilder becomes an on-the-go storyteller, and families have a place to save their stories for future generations.

"We want to put your digital media to work for you," Lee said. "LegacyBuilder takes media management to the next level by giving it a purpose ­- to tell your story and your family's story in a compelling and user-friendly way."

Rapid Sync works by syncing any folder on a PC with the user's LegacyBuilder library. Any new photos added to that folder are uploaded to LegacyBuilder the next time they connect to the internet. As media is added to the library, it is automatically organized into events on an interactive timeline based on the metadata in the photos and the user's answers to questions within the platform. When they next login to LegacyBuilder, they're able to review any new events created from the media.

This process creates a series of mini digital photo albums, which turn user media into a story of their and their children's lives. As new events are created on a user's timeline, any family and other connections receive notices via email or within the platform to view the new events.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.
