Fry Communications Introduces Enhanced Digital Edition Technology

No Comments

first_imgPrinting, production and distribution company Fry Communications has introduced Fry LIVEPAGES, an online publishing platform that merges online interactivity and rich media capabilities. The platform “goes beyond the status quo of digital editions by providing a unique and visually engaging user experience,” said Steve Grande, Fry’s vice president of sales, and will incorporate video, animation, rollovers and one-click sharing via social networks to promote reader interaction with fully-searchable, SEO-supported content via API packages. LIVEPAGES’ key differentiators—enabling it to go beyond print and digital editions—include the depth of content, reader control of what is presented onscreen through rollovers and click-thrus, and the activity tracked by system-specific, real-time analytics, said Grande. “The biggest differentiator, though, is the richness of the content—the many instances of flash, video, polls, rolling filmstrips, news tickers all in one spread,” he added. To help increase publisher ROI, LIVEPAGES provides concrete data on respondents to interactive ads, as well as “immediate feedback on ads that work and ads that don’t,” he said. According to Fry, interactive ads increase click-thru rates from less than one percent on a traditional banner ad up to 20 percent or more for an interactive ad.While no magazine publishers are on board with the new platform yet, Grande said feedback has been positive.last_img read more

Apex Legends Will it play on your laptop

Fortnite Asus Huawei Intel Lenovo Nvidia Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment Share your voice If you want to release a video game that a million-odd people will download overnight, then a Fortnite-style free-to-play battle royale game seems like the way to go. Apex Legends, from Respawn and EA, has become an instant hit, thanks to its freemium business model and availability across PCs, Xbox and PlayStation. For PC players, Fortnite is a great example of a pick-up-and-play game that doesn’t need especially high-end hardware to run. But what about the new Apex Legends? We lined up a bunch of laptops for some anecdotal hands-on testing to see how the game plays. But first, here are the recommended minimum specs from each game’s developer:Fortnite Battle Royale minimum specsCPU: Intel Core i3 2.4 GhzRAM: 4GB GPU: Intel HD 4000Apex Legends minimum specsCPU: Intel Core i3-6300 3.8GHzRAM: 6GBGPU: Nvidia GeForce GT 640 / Radeon HD 7700Recommended specs for PC games are not always set in stone. Sometimes the minimum spec is barely enough to launch the game at a crawl, other times you can push the boundaries and play games decently on hardware never intended for it. New driver or game software updates can also make a big difference. One thing is clear: Fortnite is built to run on almost anything this side of a scientific calculator, while Apex Legends depends at the very least on a discrete graphics card. Here are some laptops in the CNET Labs we ran the game on, and what we found. Frame rates are from the onscreen fps counter built into EA’s Origin game launcher.  Sarah Tew/CNET Huawei Matebook 13CPU: 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8565URAM: 8GBGPU: Nvidia MX15018-24fpsResults: At the lowest graphics settings and a paltry 1,200×800 resolution, the game ran at around 18 to 24fps. That made for a choppy experience, but not one that was totally unplayable. In a pinch, you could probably kill some time playing Apex at the back of a crowded conference room. Stepping down even further, to Intel integrated graphics (in a Dell XPS 13), we got 14-20fps by turning every option down to its lowest setting, including the resolution. It’s technically playable like that, but don’t expect to actually hit anyone. Lenovo Legion Y7000PCPU: 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 8750HRAM: 16GBGPU: Nvidia GTX 106080-90fpsFor under $999, you can find many laptop options with Nvidia’s GTX 1060 GPU. It works fine with most new games as long as you keep detail levels modest. For a fast-paced shooter like Apex, I kept the resolution at 1,920×1,080 and detail levels at medium-to-high settings, and stayed above 80fps the whole time. 04-lenovo-legion-y7000p-1060 Sarah Tew/CNET Alienware 17 R4CPU: 2.9GHz Intel Core i7-7820HKRAM: 16GBGPU: Nvidia GTX 108090-120fpsThe classic high-end gaming laptop configuration for the past few years. A single 1080 card can still chew through just about any game, and we hit between 90 and 120fps during a live match at full HD resolution and high detail settings. Asus Zephyrus GX701CPU: 2.2GHz Intel Core i7-8750H RAM: 24GBGPU: Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q90-140fpsThe ultimate high-end experience. At the highest detail settings and full HD resolution, the game ran between 90 and 140fps without any hitches or other issues. My biggest problem was getting flat-out murdered over and over (and over) again. It’s really way more graphics power than this game needs, but that just leaves you headroom for newer games coming later this year.last_img read more
