Picture Mosaics Utilizes LeoNovus Distributed Computing Cloud for High Performance Rendering

LeoNovus Geo-dispersed Distributed Cloud Provides Higher Performance and Concurrency for Faster Time to Market for Compute Intensive Rendering of Multimedia

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LeoNovus Inc., (TSX: LTV.v) a leading Internet and distributed cloud provider with its geo-dispersed distributed Cloud, today announced that Picture Mosaics is a new customer for its wide-area data management services, using the LeoNovus geo-dispersed distributed cloud for high performance compute.  Picture Mosaic produces large images from a variety of multimedia files that can range between many MBs to GBs and require on-demand networks when transferring files from site to site, as well as high-speed for meeting tight project deadlines.

Picture Mosaics, located in Blue Bell, PA, designs and markets state-of-the-art mosaic software and design techniques, pushing the mosaic concept further into every possible print and multimedia genre to include stunning HD mosaic animation and a new online interactive mosaic platform 5 with full HTML5 support.  The creation of a photo mosaic is an art form, not just the product of a mathematical equation. Mosaic projects range from small-scale masterpieces, to eye-catching murals, tradeshow backdrops, striking inMotion video mosaic, or even an interactive on-line digital mosaic experience.

A photo mosaic has a resolution ranging from 90 mega pixels to 500 mega pixels, depending on the size of the mosaic (keep in mind that the top digital cameras only have a resolution of about 18 to 24 mega pixels). After the picture is rendered, it will be printed at 2880 to 4800+ dpi (three to six times that of photo-quality). 

"LeoNovus is a good fit for delivering on-demand, geo-dispersed, high-performance concurrent computing, which improves our turn-around times and enables faster time to market," said Albert Charpentier, CEO of Picture Mosaics.  "We also have high value clients that are concerned about higher reliability and security of their multimedia assets, which the LeoNovus distributed cloud service delivers above and beyond servers housed in commercial data centres."

"We are extremely pleased that Picture Mosaics selected us as their multimedia-compute partner," said Gordon Campbell, CEO of LeoNovus.  "They are a company with superior technology and impressive clients including Fortune 500 high-value brands such as AT&T, Proctor and Gamble, ESPN, CNN, McDonald's, BMW, Intel and Samsung to name a few.  We look forward to supporting their requirement for high performance rendering with higher reliability and security as part of our distributed cloud." 

LeoNovus offers increased security and disaster recovery across geo-dispersed endpoints with high-level redundancy.  Additionally, LeoNovus offers on-demand compute, adding additional processor cores to increase performance on compute-intensive rendering frames concurrently for a faster time to market.  This is a premium service that is cost effective by having a scalable distributed data centre.  This approach also has a high-level of reliability, and unlike traditional data centers that can be completely knocked out by storms or other unpredictable disasters, the LeoNovus distributed cloud services allow for immediate recovery due to redundancy across a broader geographical area.

About LeoNovus Inc. (www.LeoNovus.com)
LeoNovus is a publically traded company on the TSX Venture Exchange in Toronto with offices in Sunnyvale, CA. and Ottawa, Ontario.  The Company has launched an innovative high performance browser-based SMART MEDIA PLATFORM with a remotely managed cloud system that provides connected devices with unprecedented access to features, content, and functionality over the web without the cost, overhead and support of a PC.  This approach delivers an extremely flexible just-in-time service model to multiple markets including residential, hospitality and health care.  In parallel, LeoNovus utilizes its proprietary Dark Core™ technology with a unique ability to "light up" idle dark processors in hardware systems for purposes of building Intelligent Networks.  This allows the Company to offer geo-dispersed distributed cloud services with higher reliability and security than conventional data centres.

About Picture Mosiac  (www.PictureMosaics.com)
In 2001, Picture Mosaics was founded with the idea of creating professional, custom photo mosaics at a reasonable price.  It took two years to strategize and perfect its concept and in 2003, Picture Mosaics became the first and only company to provide such an exceptional and affordable work of art. To this day, the Company continues to keep its team motivated to advance the mosaic concept creatively and technologically by combining its expertise with the most cutting edge technology, internally developed software, and printers, to achieve the highest quality possible for photo mosaics. The finished product is brilliant and detailed, capable of being optically magnified up to four times by printing at 2880+ dpi (2-4x normal photo quality)
