PointGrab, the global leader in advanced gesture recognition software solutions, has been honored by Frost & Sullivan with the 2013 European Technology Innovation Award. PointGrab was recognized for its achievements in “Gesture Recognition for Consumer Electronics” as the leader, at the forefront of technological breakthroughs which will be instrumental in mass consumer adoption. PointGrab’s gesture control solutions have enhanced the functional capability of consumer electronic devices such as laptops, tablets, smartphones and televisions.

The company has succeeded in refining software algorithms and bringing an accurate motion-sensing technology to day-to-day applications. With the use of a standard 2D camera, and the recently unveiled proprietary Hybrid Action Recognition technology, PointGrab enabled devices boast a 98 percent gesture recognition accuracy (in optimal conditions).

“Israeli technology companies continue to innovate and shine, and for a tiny nation dominate certain sectors in a remarkable manner. This company has succeeded in implementing gesture technology into millions of consumer device and will continue to create innovative ways to make gesture a naturally intuitive interface for the masses,” said International entrepreneur Ron Hershco.

“We felt that it was important to present the inaugural award in this category to a company that is clearly the established incumbent in the gesture recognition industry,” said Archana Srinivasan, Senior Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

NORPAC is sponsoring a fundraiser for Senator James Risch (R-ID) which will be hosted by Elisabeth & Avi Samuels on Monday, November 4th in Englewood, NJ.   Expected attendees at the event which will discuss matters pertaining to the U.S.-Israel relationship, include Ron Hershco and Ami Mesika.

Senator Risch has strongly supported Israel and its right to defend itself since his election to the U..S. Senate in 2009. In 2010, he sponsored a resolution to express the sense of the Senate that Israel has an undeniable right to self-defense, and to condemn the destabilizing actions by extremists aboard the ship Mavi Marmara. He also co-authored a letter with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand condemning the U.N.’s anti-Israel efforts the following year.

During a trip to Israel 2 years ago, Risch met with Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders, stating that “it was… good to hear the Prime Minister’s vision of peace and economic development for the Jewish and Palestinian people. I remain convinced that if the political leaders in the Palestinian Authority and Hamas reject violence and accept Israel’s right to exist as the national homeland of the Jewish people, the Palestinian people could prosper and see a dramatic improvement in their quality of life.”

Senator Risch is the second highest Republican member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Importantly, he is the Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations’ Subcommittee that oversees U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa. For further details contact Avi@NORPAC.net
