The festival's focus is to create a collaboration among civic leader, iconic local businesses, and entertainment industry networks in order to represent the one of a kind and vibrant community that is North Hollywood.

The festival will host a red carpet event on Saturday April 12 at 5pm which will feature celebrity guest appearances and the American made couture stylings of local favorite Pinup Girl Boutique.  Among those scheduled to appear are Skeet Ulrich (Scream), John Heard (Home Alone), Melissa Claire Egan (The Young and the Restless), Lisa Edelstein (Castle) and longtime comedic favorite Cindy Williams (Laverne & Shirley). Q & A sessions with talent from the screenings will take place immediately after the screenings. In addition, CBS anchor Susie Suh,  reporters Stephanie Simmons and Lisa Sigell will also be joining the event with many more celebrities expected to be added as well.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit two distinguished nonprofit partners, The Talbert Family Foundation which assists families dealing with a catastrophic illness and Grid Alternatives whose mission is to make renewable energy technology and job training accessible to underserved communities. Key community partners and sponsors include The Hesby, LA Red Carpets, Bow and Truss Restaurant, and the Greenhouse network of filmmakers.

The festival was the brainchild of Gustavo Sampaio, an award-winning editor and TV producer as well as an independent filmmaker.  A NoHo resident himself for more than 4 years, his goal to make this festival standout and bring an unforgettable experience for all, including sponsors and charitable partners.  The North Hollywood CineFest is poised for substantial growth next year, seeking to more than double the amount of films screened at the 2015 festival.  For more information visit nohocinefest.com

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

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.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
