Ninthlink Heading to CES 2015

Ninthlink will be heading to Las Vegas for the 4th year in a row to attend the biggest technology show of the year! Festivities kick off on January 6th and continue through the 9th. A couple of this year’s biggest topics include: The Internet of Things, the yet to be released Apple watch, other wearable technologies, and high tech cars.

Ninthlink has partnered with Pello Events to design and create a video reel for the Automotive booth presented by Qualcomm Technologies. The reel will be displayed on three 7×13 LED screens on the outside of the booth and feature motion graphics, video, and graphic design.

Ninthlink’s work will also be on display at the Qualcomm Technologies MuMiMo booth. MuMiMo stands for multiple user, multiple input, multiple output. For the booth, we created an interactive demo that illustrates the benefits of MuMiMo technology. Currently, wifi only services one device at a time, but with MuMiMo, multiple devices receive the benefits at a much higher bandwidth.

If you’re not already going, register for CES 2015 now. Trust us, you don’t want to miss it! We can’t wait to see you there!

Qualcomm 2014 3GLTE Summit

For the second year in a row, Ninthlink was hired to design and develop Qualcomm Technologies 3GLTE Summit event site. The 3 day, international event, held each year in China, features top industry speakers from Qualcomm and other major players in the mobile realm. Breakout sessions, interactive product demos, and unparalleled networking and information gathering opportunities, make this a one of a kind event! For the 2014 event, our team created the mobile responsive site in drupal and provided full on-site integration with the Passkey user hotel registration system. The site also provides the latest Speaker bios and Agenda items and Presentation PDF downloads.

 

Introducing Ninthlink Ventures

Ninthlink is excited to share with you, the launch of Ninthlink Ventures! Ninthlink Ventures’ mission is to seek out, invest in, and develop the products and ideas we believe in. We partner with stand-out entrepreneurs to take their vision all the way from concept through completion and ultimately onto success.

Ninthlink Ventures was formed to extend an invitation to small, boutique, businesses and entrepreneurs, to partner with a group of like-minded people who want to invest in their ideas and grow together.  Our experience encompasses everything from manufacturing and warehousing to website development, advertising, clowning, retail, marketing, legal services, and underwater basket weaving, to make sure that your business gets set up the right way.

We are looking for Carmen San Diego, have you seen her? Or, if you can’t find her, we’re looking for another individual or group of individuals who think that their idea, product or service that they are offering already is, or has what it takes to be, the best in the space that they are looking to break into. Maybe that space is outer-space, your-space, my-space, or underwater basket weaving.

Ninthlink Goes Virtual

More and more companies are promoting virtual work, with over 43 percent of the U.S. workforce expected to work from home by 2016, according to a 2009 Forrester report. Ninthlink jumped on the trend this year and established a “Virtual Ninthlink.” By building a tightly run Project Management team and working with the latest conference tools and technologies, we’re able to have “offices” in LA and Maui and able to successfully support our team members when they take a V9 day.

Our Project Managers are the key reason that projects are on time and on budget, and that our Designers and Developers are aware of deliverables and client expectations. Without them, working remotely wouldn’t be smooth sailing. Our team uses a handful of tools to ensure that although someone may be V9, everyone is on the same page and work is being produced.

Our Design and Development teams specifically utilize many of Google’s tools, including Google Docs, Google Chat and Google Hangouts. Google Docs allows documents to be constantly updated and added to, by multiple people, in real time without having to worry about misplacing drafts. The team utilizes Google Chats and Google Hangouts to connect with each other on the fly, get updates on project status, answer quick questions, and video chat if more explanation and visuals are needed. Craig Wheeler, our Maui based Designer, weighs in on his experience with Google Hangouts. “Google Hangouts is a great way for quick communication with other team members. I get pinged through my computer and phone, so it’s efficient even if I happen to be on the go throughout the day. But when things get a little more involved, nothing beats a good ‘ol phone call.”

Another tool we’ve found useful, especially when our Designers or Devs need to show clients project progress is InvisionApp. “When it’s time to show off some design comps, InvisionApp is by far the greatest tool I’ve come across. Complete with presentation mode, where anyone can jump on a call and follow along with the click of a link. Easy, intuitive, and pain free” – Craig Wheeler.
