"You have the perfect liberty to sell our shares and move on from tomorrow"- Rediff CEO
October 28, 2014
On the Rediff conference call held last week, Rediff Chairman and CEO Ajit Balakrishnan twice told Rajeev Arora, an investor, that he's free to sell his shares and move on. Balakrishnan was responding to a desperate query from Arora regarding Rediff's cash situation: the company has $12.5 million in cash and has reported losses of over $3 million in its last three quarters. Arora, who said he had been invested in Rediff for five years, pointed out that addressing the cash situation is a current (and) immediate need, questioned Rediff's ethical responsibility to shareholders, and whether a 10 year period isn't enough for the company to increase revenues. This was the third time on the conference call that the Rediff management was being asked about its cash situation: the first two times, MediaNama had asked the company about its plans, and how it intends to reduce operational expenditure and increase revenue, apart from questions about why its advertising revenues have declined year on year to $1.46 million from $1.88 million for the same quarter. Note that Rediff's fee based revenues, via its e-commerce marketplace Rediff Shopping, increased to $1.71 million, up from $1.31 million for the same quarter last year. The Q&A with MediaNama, followed by the Q&A with Rajiv Arora:

Caltron Introduces Smaller form Factor Wide Screen LED Open Frame Monitors
October 28, 2014
Applications are constantly evolving as time progresses and will require different types of displays to be available.  Caltron started to provide 4:3 aspect ratio open frame LCD monitors because that was the norm for all applications that were switching over to LCD displays.  While 4:3 aspect ratio monitors and displays are still the norm for almost every single industrial application out, the trend for digital signage and other non industrial machine applications seems to be accepting and open to 16:9 aspect ratio or wide screen display formats to have more diversity in displays. Caltron has had wide screen format displays for a while, in larger sizes.  The first two models were the FWT-2206O and the FWT-2407O, which has been replaced by the LWT-2407O.  These two models are typically meant for applications that required a larger screen display.
