-- Featured Vehicle Unveil at LINE-X Press Conference on Wednesday, Oct. 31 at 3:00 p.m. --

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- LINE-X Protective Coatings, the nation's leading developer and provider of high performance protective coatings, will feature a surprising vehicle unveiling in their 2012 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show booth #34135 today, Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012, at 3:00 p.m., in collaboration with the world famous design team from West Coast Customs. In an effort to showcase their product applications available beyond the traditional truck market, LINE-X will debut a new exterior application, LINE-X Body Armour on the LINE-X Camaro, a customized 2013 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS Coupe.

"LINE-X continuously strives to be ahead of the industry with new protective coatings products and unique applications that allow our customers to personalize their vehicles, while still protecting them from harsh road and work environments," said Kevin Heronimus, CEO of LINE-X Protective Coatings. "Our collaboration with West Coast Customs is a great platform to debut LINE-X Body Armour, a new exterior application."

True to West Coast Customs fashion, the LINE-X Camaro is full of interior and performance modifications, but it's the initial look of the exterior that sets this car apart from any other vehicle at the SEMA show. LINE-X sprayed the entire exterior with the newly announced LINE-X Body Armour in "West Coast Customs Blue," giving the Camaro a unique and unexpectedly rugged appearance. Body modifications from SLP Performance Parts (SLP) include its Camaro performance hood and prototype front fascia and spoiler. To give the LINE-X Camaro an even more aggressive and low profile performance look, West Coast Customs included rocker panels by Street Scene Equipment and outfitted the vehicle with Continental Tires and LINE-X coated wheels by Asanti. A SLP rear wing completes the exterior performance look. Industry leader, ORACLE Lighting, provided its high-end LED lighting package.

The theme for this never-before-seen LINE-X Camaro truly resonates with LINE-X's product application expansion and the diversification of LINE-X protective coatings being used for applications outside of the traditional truck bedliner industry. LINE-X also coated the door jams and speaker boxes. BASF provided the interior paint color and West Coast Customs designed a custom interior using Roadwire Retro for the leather and fabric accents. MB Quart provided the entire audio system contained in a LINE-X coated speaker box.

The performance under the hood makes the LINE-X Camaro a true SEMA vehicle. West Coast Customs modified the power plant by replacing the stock headers with SLP High Performance Headers and by engineering in a SLP Supercharger System. To give the LINE-X Camaro a more pronounced muscle car exhaust note, SLP also provided its performance-based custom dual high flow exhaust package.

The LINE-X booth is located in the South Hall, Upper Level, booth #34135. In addition to the LINE-X Camaro vehicle unveiling, LINE-X will again be hosting Reed Timmer and Chris Chittick from Discovery Channel's Storm Chasers fame. Both The Dominator 2 and the Ford Raptor tornado chase vehicles will be on display throughout SEMA. Autograph signings and fan photo opportunities will be available Tuesday through Thursday.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...

A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business.
