VIDEO – ImagineAR $IP.ca $IPNFF Adds Media Powerhouse Michael Anderson To Spearhead UK & Euro Sales $SEV.ca $VST.ca $YDX.ca $NTAR.ca

If you were a small cap Augmented Reality company from Vancouver that needed to appoint an old media / new media powerhouse to head up your European sales operations, we really don’t think you could have found someone better credentialed than Michael Anderson – and that’s exactly what ImagineAR (IP:CSE) (IPNFF:OTCQB) did.  

Anderson is a highly regarded leader in the world of digital with his roots firmly based in UK media. Part entrepreneur, part corporate animal, he quickly rose through the ranks ending up as Managing Director of News UK. He worked for Rupert Murdoch and Les Hinton during his rise to the top and made the Board room of both News UK and Associated Newspapers (publishers of the Daily Mail).   

Sensing the changing winds of the media business, Anderson was a driving force on the launch team of Metro, which overtook The Sun in 2018 as the largest circulation of any newspaper in the UK.  At Metro, he was instrumental in the paper being cited as a new business case with commercial results not seen previously in the newspaper industry, growing revenue from £100k a week to £1m per week in just 12 months.  Additionally, Mike was the founder of the Chelsea APPS Factory which included UK clients KPMG, Ladbrokes, Standard Life, TfL, Vanquis and Waitrose.    

….. And now he is sensing another change in the winds to put his considerable talents and team behind the Augmented Reality solutions of ImagineAR.  

If you don’t know what Augmented Reality (AR) is, this quote from Apple CEO Tim Cook is all the motivation you need to get up to speed:  

“AR Will play an important role in how we use technology in the future – and promises to be as influential in our society as the smart phone”  

 Anderson wholeheartedly agrees, stating “ImagineAR is the most advanced AR platform in the market today and I am excited to launch the company’s sales and marketing initiatives in the UK and Europe.”  

That quote is just the tip of the iceberg.  Watch what Anderson has to say about the “unlimited possibilities of Augmented Reality” and some pretty good hints about whose doors he will be knocking on first …. which is pretty impressive given the fact August is vacation season in Europe 🙂   

If our interview with CEO Alen Paul Silverrstieen and Michael Anderson is any indication, it sounds like the Company’s growth into the UK and Europe is all but assured in 2020 and well beyond.

VIDEO – Kontrol Energy $KNR.ca Technology Could Detect #COVID19 In Big Buildings Through Real-Time Air Sampling & Alerts $SNE $MSFT $HON $GOOGL $QCOM $SONA.ca

If Google NEST is the leader in smart home technology, then Kontrol Energy (KNR:CSE) is the small cap equivalent for smart building technology.  More than just lip service, their established Blue Chip customer base includes:

  • Beyond Meat
  • Oxford Properties
  • Brookfield Asset Management
  • Telus
  • Suncor Energy
  • ….. Many More

Moreover, they’ve signed a major deal wth Toyota (Tsusho Canada), targeting 200 plants requiring up to $1 million each in automation retrofits.

CONCLUSION?  When Kontrol Energy says they are entering a 4-week testing phase – with an independent lab – to determine if their technology can detect COVID-19 in the air of big buildings, you need to take the news seriously.  You know who else took it seriously?  The National Research Council, who granted Kontrol $50,000 to conduct the test.  The amount may seem small but that’s because KNR has already done most of the leg work already and is now in the final 4-week testing phase.  

If successful, the implications could be enormous for their Tier-1 client base, as well as, all commercial buildings, government buildings, schools and other big essential locations that need to find a way to start bringing people back.  In short, Kontrol Energy’s BioCloud Analyzer could have a major impact on the North American economy.

Kontrol $KNR.ca Receives Approval for Government Grant to Accelerate the Development of New #COVID19 Testing Technology $SNE $MSFT $HON $GOOGL $QCOM $SONA.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:35 AM on Wednesday, August 5th, 2020

  • Announced that it has received approval for an initial government grant of $50,000 from the National Research Council of Canada to accelerate its new Covid-19 testing technology, the Kontrol BioCloud® analyzer
  • Drawing from its extensive industry experience in air emissions and air quality monitoring, Kontrol is developing a new technology designed to detect and alert for COVID-19, in real-time, through rapid on-site air sampling and detection of aerosol and droplet encapsulated viruses in indoor and outdoor environments
  • Kontrol has developed its initial prototype and has commenced lab testing of the detection chamber
  • The lab will spend the next 4 weeks testing the detection chamber and the applicable interactions with COVID-19.

TORONTO, ON /  August 5, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has received approval for an initial government grant of $50,000 from the National Research Council of Canada to accelerate its new Covid-19 testing technology, the Kontrol BioCloud® analyzer (“BioCloud analyzer” or “BioCloud”).

Can we measure for COVID-19 like we do for air quality?

Drawing from its extensive industry experience in air emissions and air quality monitoring, Kontrol is developing a new technology designed to detect and alert for COVID-19, in real-time, through rapid on-site air sampling and detection of aerosol and droplet encapsulated viruses in indoor and outdoor environments.

“Our team has been working to bring BioCloud to market since the onset of COVID-19 and we see a great need for a technology which can provide a level of assurance that spaces where individuals work and congregate can be safe,” says Paul Ghezzi, Chief Executive Officer of Kontrol. “If successful, BioCloud will be able to provide pro-active virus detection capabilities with an alert and notification system in public settings and to help maintain confidence as economies re-open.”

COVID-19 Testing

The current focus of testing for COVID-19 has been individual swabs. While this remains an important part of the testing regime it would not be possible to test all individuals daily in the cases of large gatherings and transportation.

According to the Center for Disease Control, “the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. COVID-19 seems to be spreading easily and sustainably in the community (“community spread”).Community spread means people have been infected with the virus in an area, including some who are not sure how or where they became infected.”

BioCloud has been designed to operate in open spaces where crowds gather or congregate. Through constant air sampling over designated intervals of time and a propriety detection chamber, designed to interact with COVID-19, BioCloud seeks to provide a real-time detection and alert system. BioCloud’s anticipated applications include schools, buildings, hospitals, transportation, or any location where crowds are gathered.

“When we initiated the design of BioCloud we leveraged our extensive experience in sampling for low level particulate matter in industrial facilities which includes air quality, emissions and various gases,” says Gary Saunders, VP of Kontrol. “We appreciate the government support received to date to accelerate the development of BioCloud.”

Development Plan

Kontrol has developed its initial prototype and has commenced lab testing of the detection chamber. The lab will spend the next 4 weeks testing the detection chamber and the applicable interactions with COVID-19. Following the testing period, Kontrol will announce the results and provide further details on its go to market strategy.

Kontrol is not making any express or implied claims that its BioCloud analyzer has the ability to measure or detect COVID-19 at this time.

  • Completed the acquisition of New Found Air, previously announced on May 19, 2020
  • NFA leads a building energy and service platform that ensures the effective monitoring, operation and service of essential heating, cooling, ventilation, and utility systems.
  • The operations of NFA are diversified across the commercial, industrial, and multi-residential building sector
  • Acquisition Adds Recurring Revenue Service Platform

TORONTO, ON / August 4, 2020 / Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE:KNR)(OTCQB:KNRLF)(FSE:1K8) (“Kontrol” or “Company“) announces that it has completed the acquisition of New Found Air (“NFA“), previously announced on May 19, 2020. NFA leads a building energy and service platform that ensures the effective monitoring, operation and service of essential heating, cooling, ventilation, and utility systems. The operations of NFA are diversified across the commercial, industrial, and multi-residential building sector.

“By closing the NFA acquisition we are well positioned to expand our technology and smart buildings solutions,” says Paul Ghezzi, CEO Kontrol Energy. “NFA has a blue-chip customer base and a service business with growing recurring revenues. These customers represent a new organic growth opportunity for Kontrol’s products and services.”

Kontrol has acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of NFA for consideration of $2.7 Million; paid as $1.55 Million in cash, $750,000 vendor take-back loan having performance conditions, and the issuance of 727,272 Kontrol common shares at a deemed price of $0.55 cents per share.

NFA will initially be a separate operating subsidiary of Kontrol with an established strong management team which will remain in place. Over the coming six months there will be a transition to a full integration within Kontrol’s operating platform and the potential for cost synergies based on the consolidation of staff and administrative systems.

Caution Regarding Forward Looking Statements:

Certain information included in this press release, including information relating to future financial or operating performance and other statements that express the expectations of management or estimates of future performance constitute “forward-looking statements”. Such forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements regarding possible future acquisitions, organic growth, the provision of solutions to customers and Greenhouse Gas emissions reductions, proposed financial savings and sustainable energy benefits and energy monitoring. The global outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has had a significant impact on businesses through the restrictions put in place by the Canadian, provincial, and municipal governments regarding travel, business operations and isolation/quarantine orders. At this time, the extent of the impact of COVID-19 on the Company is unknown as this will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and that cannot be predicted with confidence. These uncertainties arise from the inability to predict the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, and the duration of the outbreak, including the duration of travel restrictions, business closures or disruptions, and quarantine/isolation measures that are currently, or may be put, in place by Canada and other countries to fight the virus. Where the Company expresses or implies an expectation or belief as to future events or results, such expectation or belief are based on assumptions made in good faith and believed to have a reasonable basis. Such assumptions include, without limitation, that suitable businesses and technologies for acquisition and/or investment will be available, that such acquisitions and or investment transactions will be concluded, that sufficient capital will be available to the Company, that technology will be as effective as anticipated, that organic growth will occur, and others. However, forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, which could cause actual results to differ materially from future results expressed, projected or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks include, but are not limited to, lack of acquisition and investment opportunities or that such opportunities may not be concluded on reasonable terms, or at all, that sufficient capital and financing cannot be obtained on reasonable terms, or at all, that technologies will not prove as effective as expected, that customers and potential customers will not be as accepting of the Company’s product and service offering as expected, and government and regulatory factors impacting the energy conservation industry. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements and the forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement. The forward-looking statements contained herein are made as at the date hereof and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or revise any such forward-looking statements or any forward-looking statements contained in any other documents whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required under applicable securities law.

  • Explains how the Loop Insights Contact Tracing Platform is complementary to the government’s “COVID Alert” App
  • Loop’s check-in solution is potentially a perfect solution for all sectors and potential uses, including those difficult ones referred to above because the check-ins can be done on a mobile phone as well as through a Near Field Communication enabled ID card or bracelet
  • Loop Platform provides a versatile, highly scalable managed process that is expected to aid in the safe reopening of schools, businesses and public facilities
  • Loop is well-positioned to play a big part in laying the foundation and creating the expectation of what is the “new normal.”

VANCOUVER, BC, Aug. 4, 2020  /CNW/ – Loop Insights Inc. (TSXV: MTRX) (the “Company” or “Loop”), a provider of contactless solutions and artificial intelligence (“AI”) to drive automated marketing, contact tracing, and contactless solutions to the brick and mortar space explains how the Loop Insights Contact Tracing Platform is complementary to the government’s “COVID Alert” App.

In recent and ongoing conversations with various levels of government in Canada (collectively, the “Governments”), each confirmed their full support and commitment to the implementation of various Covid-19 contact tracing and awareness solutions, among those being considered is Loop’s technology.  The Governments’ key decision-makers acknowledged that for successful management of COVID-19 through technology, several solutions are required to operate simultaneously in order to cover all the potential scenarios.  There is an ever increasing sense of urgency to implement contact tracing systems, solutions and plans, not only for the Governments, but also for business, employers, unions and educational facilities to name a few. 

How Does Loop Enhance the Governments’ “COVID Alert” App

The biggest single challenge with all current contact tracing apps is adoption (i.e., downloading) by the general public and without widespread adoption, the effectiveness of any such app is very limited.  Resistance to adoption is similar to many downloadable apps including privacy concerns, data usage, smartphone storage limits, continuous location tracking, having to download updates, unwanted notifications and smartphone battery usage due to continuous Bluetooth activation. Additionally, current app options are less effective in industries such as education, industrial labor sites, some union job sites and in some mining jobs because, in many cases, mobile phones are not permitted or used onsite.

What distinguishes Loop’s Contact Tracing Solution from the apps and what makes it more attractive is the fact that is not an app at all and therefore does not face the same adoption challenge as app-based solutions.  This is expected to result in a far greater adoption rate and, as stated above, the higher the adoption rate, the higher the effectiveness of any solution. Loop’s check-in solution is potentially a perfect solution for all sectors and potential uses, including those difficult ones referred to above because the check-ins can be done on a mobile phone as well as through a Near Field Communication enabled ID card or bracelet. Loop is positioned to provide a highly scalable solution that would automate current contract tracing legislation and replace the current pen and paper data collection and current proposed app-based solutions. The timely need for Loop’s solution can be seen in the company’s accelerated discussions with major retailers, agencies, and Governments.

CEO Rob Anson: “Contact tracing and management is about widespread adoption, connectivity/coverage, data management and necessary and relevant alert notifications. The Governments have done an exemplary job in the launch of their COVID-19 Alert app.  Loop is elated to have met with Government representatives in this regard and look forward to continued discussions regarding a technology relationship with the Governments to among other things, assist in the effort to stop the spread of Covid-19.  We concur that for contact tracing to be successful, there will need to be numerous solutions. As such, we have developed our proprietary solution in a manner that is expected to enable our Loop platform to easily connect to, complement and enhance any current and future solutions, whether app-based or otherwise. Loop has been catching the eye of those seeking solutions with our AI and automated data applications.”

Loop’s Focus is on the Return to School and Solutions for the Public Workplace. 

The Loop Platform provides a versatile, highly scalable managed process that is expected to aid in the safe reopening of schools, businesses and public facilities. There is now a great responsibility for employers, from an HR perspective, to provide a process that ensures that their members are being protected. Loop is poised to deliver solutions that protect the health and safety of the student body, teachers, staff as well as visitors. For example, providing a check-in solution that is designed to keep children safe from the time they step on the school bus, throughout their day, to when they return home. The Loop platform is expected to provide an alternate process to gain better access and coverage in the public work sector and eliminate some of the current challenges with schools, unions, environment, adoption and connectivity. 

The Future of Loop after COVID-19

Governments and decision-makers are looking to invest in future-proof solutions that can continue providing value after Covid-19 rather than simply a short-term, Covid-19 specific Band-Aid. Loop continues to be focused on long-term bricks and mortar retail and other land-based data collection and use solutions. As COVID-19 will eventually disappear, Loop’s most significant benefit is that its contact tracing platform can create a gateway for businesses to access new retail solutions, contactless NFC user experiences and digital transformation. Loop is well-positioned to play a big part in laying the foundation and creating the expectation of what is the “new normal.”
