LOS ANGELES, CA and MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/02/14 -- Los Angeles and New York-based Out East Entertainment and Miami-based Mindpix Corporation (OTC Pink: MPIX) (PINKSHEETS: MPIX) announce a joint venture to create New Gospel Entertainment.
New Gospel Entertainment (NGE) is created to leverage the growing influence of the faith-based market, which is projected to have a spending power of $1.7 trillion by 2017. With an emphasis on creating live events and original content for the broadcast, digital and radio markets, NGE will appeal to a core multigenerational audience that values strong family connections and is extremely loyal to brands that are active in their community.
"We are very excited to be partnering with Mindpix in the creation of New Gospel Entertainment. Mindpix brings a robust digital distribution and marketing platform to our original content experiences," said Steven Marrs, OEE President & Managing Partner. "Our belief in the faith-based market and its future is strong and this new venture allows us to leverage our relationships in the faith-based community with talent, brands and media to create and distribute compelling original content experiences domestically and abroad across multiple media platforms."
"Given the strong relationships Out East Entertainment already has in the faith-based marketplace, it made sense to partner with OEE in forming New Gospel Entertainment," said Victor Siegel, CEO of Mindpix. "Together we can distribute through our digital platforms the very content that brings the gospel community's beliefs to life -- not only within the current domestic markets, but to an international audience as well."
The first initiative to come out of NGE is the "Bridge to Believe" tour. In a historical first, Billboard chart-topping and Stellar Award-winning gospel greats Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Tye Tribbet, and in select markets, Vashawn Mitchell, will join forces on a praise worthy 22-city U.S. tour. Beginning September 8, it will bring to life Gospel's spiritual roots and point to its exciting future. It is a can't miss event that will find its way to 22 mega churches across the country and will be distributed on the Mindpix digital platforms domestically and around the world.
Commented Mr. Siegel further, "As we continue to roll-out revenue generating programs across entertainment, music, sports and U.S. Hispanic media properties, the establishment of NGE and the ground breaking 'Bridge to Believe' tour is another example of the power of our platform, industry relationship and the value of our world class of our Board of Advisors."

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it. Yet, this unruly triumvirate will soon dominate and deliver DevSecOps faster, cheaper, better, and on an unprecedented scale. In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, will discuss how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a prac...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
