CSS Music adds new pricing tier to its "You Pick 'Em Plan" letting end users preview, select and download music from any where on its website.

Dare to Compare music libraries for Quality, Selection and Service”

— Mike Fuller, Managing Director

The cost of this new tier is $65. Downloads can be taken at any time and do not expire as with some subscription plans.

CSSMusic.com visitors can use any of 4 search systems including the latest in fingerprint music identification technology “Exact-a-Track” that allows searching by comparing sound recording waveforms. This is similar in some respects to Google’s Content ID music recognition system.

Other search tools available are curated “Hot Genre” Playlists and Single and Multiple Keyword searching by style and genre.

CSS Music Managing Director, Mike Fuller, says “our new ‘You Pick ‘em Plan’ tier at $65 for 5 tracks costs about the same as one track from competitive libraries. As I like to say, ‘No Jive, You Get Five’. 5 tracks from any where on our site. And perhaps equally important, the CSS Standard License provides one of the biggest bundles of rights of any royalty free music library. Dare to Compare music libraries for Quality, Selection and Service”.

There are 4 other pricing tiers in the CSS “You Pick ‘em Plan” 10, 50, 100 and 500 downloads. Also available is a Rollover Download Subscription Plan. Tunes also can be downloaded on a single track basis or end users can take advantage of an earned discount plan that automatically kicks in.

Oliver Richman, New Music Release

Oliver Richman, New Holiday Release

Oliver Richman

A Newly Released Music Video of the Same Song, Recorded and Filmed By Oliver When he Was 10 Years Old, Accompanies the 2018 Recording

‘I Can See’ is a song of hope and optimism. In a world full of challenge, it is inspiring and empowering to remember to look for the good even while acknowledging some of the pain of the truth.”

— Lisa Dawn Miller, Producer

LOS ANGELES , CA, U.S.A., December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Keeping the spirit alive of his iconic grandfather, famed songwriter Ron Miller, 18-year-old actor/singer Oliver Richman (https://oliverrichman.com/) releases a powerful, piano-only ballad entitled "I Can See." Oliver is the first artist to release the track written by his late grandfather when it was discovered after Miller’s passing in 2007. The new recording is now available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and YouTube.

Oliver previously recorded the song as a child in 2010 and filmed a music video for its release, however the video was held and only recently edited as part of a college send-off to Oliver from his mother, producer/singer/songwriter Lisa Dawn Miller (https://lisadawnmiller.com/), who produced both recordings and the music video. The video is now available on Oliver’s website and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/TXvwJUL6J0s.

“As part of my goal to get all of the unknown works of my father out there for the whole world to hear, I’m so grateful to have the extraordinary talents of my son, who knows how to interpret my father’s powerful, meaningful and profound lyrics with depth and sensitivity,” Lisa Miller said.

“‘I Can See’ is a song of hope and optimism. In a world full of challenge, it is inspiring and empowering to remember to look for the good even while acknowledging some of the pain of the truth. It was my father’s message to me and it is my message to my son, who sang this song as an innocent child full of hope and excitement about the future and who sings it now as young college student wanting to utilize his talents to go out there and change the world in the most positive ways,” Miller continued.

Just in time for the holidays, Oliver also recently released a beautiful rendition of the late Miller's holiday classic, "Someday at Christmas," originally recorded by Stevie Wonder in 1967. The song is also available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and YouTube. “Someday at Christmas” and “I Can See” are the first two releases from the younger Miller’s new record label, LDM Music.

Oliver's grandfather and Lisa's father, Ron Miller, penned standards such as, "For Once in My Life," "Touch Me in the Morning," "A Place in the Sun,” "Yester-me, Yester-you, Yesterday," "Heaven Help Us All," "I've Never Been to Me," "If I Could,” “Everyone’s a Kid at Christmas Time” (co-written by Oliver’s maternal grandmother, Aurora Miller), and many more.

Oliver was personally invited by Stevie Wonder when he was just 10 years old to perform the hit “One Little Christmas Tree” at the Nokia Theatre (now the Microsoft Theater) for Wonder's annual House Full of Toys benefit concert, where Oliver received a standing ovation from more than 7,500 people. Oliver is now a freshman at New York University Tisch School of the Arts.

Oliver’s prior releases include takes on his grandfather’s classics, “For Once in My Life – Special 50th Anniversary Edition,” “Heaven Help Us All,” “Will I Still Be Me,” and “Everyone’s a Kid at Christmas Time.” He also released many other songs including several penned by his mother, “You and I,” “Rise” “Believe,” “Today” and “The Diagramming Club.”

Lisa has written and/or produced other holiday recordings for the Miller-family catalogue such as “A Miracle,” "A Christmas Truce," We'll Always Have Christmas Eve," "A New Year" and “Celebrate Me Home.” She also recently launched LDM Publishing (https://ldmpublishing.com/) and is currently developing a new musical about the life of her father entitled, “For Once in My Life."

At 9 years old, Oliver released, “Defying Gravity,” his first music video. He first appeared in the critically-acclaimed show, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show” as “Young Frank Sinatra” at age 10. At 13 years old, he released a piano-only ballad of Bruno Mars’ “Count on Me.”

Introducing PIQO, The Word’s Smartest and Most Powerful 1080p Pico Pocket Projector

PIQO one of the most portable projectors ever, measuring only 2 inches on each side.

Enjoy PIQO anywhere – Perfect especially for those bedtime screenings.

PIQO’s portability means that you can be ready for a professional presentation anywhere you go.

PIQO is a state-of-the-art entertainment system that features Android, a 240” HD screen, universal connectivity and much more – all while fitting in your pocket

We had a crazy idea of designing the world’s most powerful projector that could fit in the palm of your hand. PIQO achieves that through a perfect harmony of smart features, HD video, size and price.”


LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, December 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — PIQO is the latest innovation in portable projection technology. Measuring barely 2 in. tall and wide, this pocket-sized cinema comes packed with features such as 1080p HD picture quality, a built-in Hi-Fi speaker, seamless Bluetooth pairing, offline storage, and an incredible 50 hours of battery life. Whether at home, work, or virtually anywhere else, PIQO brings media to life like never before.

PIQO may be small, but it’s already making big waves across the web. Within three days of its launch on Indiegogo, funding had already exceeded $100,000 —this amounts to over 1,000% of its goal. And it isn’t stopping there. As the word spreads about PIQO’s incredible capabilities as an all-in-one smart multimedia player, funding and support from the community is growing exponentially.

PIQO isn’t just a standard projector. Because it has Android Operating system and apps, screen mirroring support (AirPlay, Miracast, eShare), WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth, and built-in storage, it’s more like a full-fledged smart entertainment system. Users can connect to the internet and access their favorite apps like Netflix and YouTube from anywhere, without their phone. Navigation is easy thanks to the responsive touchscreen and included remote control. PIQO is also universally compatible with all mobile devices, gaming systems, and computers and can seamlessly cast shows and games on any surface via screen mirroring. As PIQO is meant to be taken everywhere, a lack of internet isn’t a problem. Movies and songs can be loaded directly onto PIQO’s hard drive, and users can even download their next Netflix binge right from the app for offline viewing.

When it comes time to turn PIQO on, users can enjoy hours of HD quality picture and audio without the need for a single wire. The powerful 200-lumen projector delivers twice the brightness of most competitors in the premium $500-800 price range such as Sony and Philips and guarantees rich colors and sharp images at 1080p HD. PIQO can project at up to 240” without a loss in picture quality for a truly cinematic experience.

One issue with other portable projectors is that they require external speakers, bringing into question how “portable” they really are. PIQO solves this problem with its state-of-the-art built-in speaker. Designed by audio engineers from leading audio brands, PIQO’s surround-sound speaker booms with crystal clear Hi-Fi sound.

PIQO can be placed on any type of surface and still deliver flawless video thanks to its automatic keystone angle correction. With the touch of a button, PIQO automatically adjusts the projected image using advanced gravity sensors. PIQO can be put on tables, beds, tripods, lawn chairs—anywhere.

Looking at the hardware, PIQO is extremely powerful. In fact, it’s as powerful as your iPhone. With its 16 GB of memory, quad-core processor, and battery capable of up to 5 hours of video and 50 hours of music playback, PIQO isn’t just the most powerful portable projector. It’s one of the most powerful devices. Period.

PIQO was developed by leading audio-visual engineers who set out to create the first portable entertainment system. As PIQO is a projector that has its own smart computing and storage capabilities yet is also universally compatible with all other devices, users will enjoy limitless possibilities for entertainment, education, business and more. And, with the most advanced speaker, projector, and battery in the industry, PIQO looks and sounds better (and lasts longer) than most phones, tablets, and computers, and other projectors out there.

About PIQO
PIQO was founded by a group of dedicated audio-visual specialists who had the crazy idea of designing the world’s most powerful projector that could fit in the palm of your hand. After months of research and development, the PIQO projector was born. By packing every multimedia feature imaginable into this project (and designing brand new, cutting-edge technology), the team at PIQO has realized its dream of creating the first pocket-sized entertainment system.

More information about the World's Smartest and Most Powerful Pico Projector is available at www.piqoprojector.com and on Indiegogo including information on how to pre-order now at special early-bird pricing.

This extended agreement is all about ensuring a viable business model that follows Altibox’s growth. Xstream’s cloud SaaS services will now be used on a flexible, usage driven SaaS billing basis”

— Michael Rasmussen, CEO, Xstream

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, December 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leading OTT and TV Everywhere enabler Xstream A/S today announces that its service agreement with Norway’s popular IPTV operator Altibox has been upgraded to a multi-year software-as-a-service (SaaS) business model.

Altibox has used Xstream’s services since 2010. Prior to the newly extended contract start, the services were migrated from a data centre in Denmark to the Amazon Web Service (AWS). The transfer proved a simple “one go” experience due to Xstream’s expertise and track record in cloud based and scalable services.

“The migration to Xstream’s cloud services proved important to Altibox securing stability and availability on our TVE service while maintaining a predictable TCO,” says Jarle Johnson, Head of IPTV at Altibox. “It also ensures that capacity can be scaled up and down on AWS according to market needs.”

“This extended agreement between the two firms is all about ensuring a viable business model that follows Altibox’s growth,” adds Michael Rasmussen, Xstream’s CEO. “Xstream’s cloud SaaS services will now be used on a flexible, usage driven SaaS billing basis.”

The enhanced benefits to Altibox from this new agreement are manyfold. It gives Altibox ongoing access to Xstream’s monitoring services, AWS and DRM experts, and enables use of features such as auto-scaling.

Altibox is a unified brand name for broadband, IPTV and VOIP services distributed in Norway and Denmark with over 35 Norwegian and six Danish networks.

Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society Announces Its 2nd Year Nominations

The Favourite, Black Panther, BlacKkKlansman, and A Star is Born lead the nominations.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, December 3, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society (LAOFCS) is pleased to announce that their 2nd Annual Awards Ceremony will be held on January 9th, 2019, at the Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles.

Fox Searchlight’s The Favourite and Marvel/Disney’s Black Panther top the nominations list with ten nominations each, while WB’s A Star is Born earns nine, and Focus Features’ BlacKkKlansman earns eight. Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade is quickly becoming the little indie that could this award season as it scored six nominations. Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk was also well-received by the members as the film scored a total of five nominations including Best Supporting Actress.

The members of the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society have also voted on some of the more underrepresented films this award season including Fox’s The Hate U Give, Focus Features’ Tully, Sony Pictures' Searching, and Roadside’s Ben is Back, among several others.

“In a year where diversity and representation have been at the forefront of so many conversations, I believe that the LAOFCS nominations this year proves how much representation truly matters. There have been a lot of great films this year that have tackled important issues, so I am thrilled to see that reflected in our nominations,” notes LAOFCS'Menzel

In total, LAOFCS members nominated over fifty different films ranging from smaller art-house releases to major blockbusters.
In addition to the nominations list below, the LAOFCS will also announce a few other awards closing to their show including the recipient of this Trailblazer Award which was awarded to Jessica Chastain last year.
