    Platinum Platypus Uses Quantum StorNext Pro Studio to Improve Media Access and Sharing, Accelerate Collaborative Workflow and Increase ProductivityVideo and Motion Graphics Firm Realizes Immediate Gains in Efficiency and Capacity While Building Foundation for Fluid, Economical Growth

    SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. today announced that Platinum Platypus, creator of video, motion graphics and animation for both media and corporate enterprises, has implemented Quantum StorNext(R) Pro Studio to realize faster, more scalable storage and sharing of high-resolution video content. Quantum's workflow-optimized StorNext Pro(TM) Studio solution provides high-performance storage that Platinum Platypus can expand smoothly and economically to accommodate its rapid growth and its work with ever-larger media files. The complete storage solution from Quantum supports an efficient and agile workflow in which creatives can quickly and simultaneously access and edit video. Connecting to a Scalar(R) LTO library, StorNext Pro Studio also facilitates archive and protection of older projects while keeping them available for the creative team.

    http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnvar/20141209/163323LOGO

    [Suggested tweet: Platinum Platypus realizes huge gains in media workflow efficiency, productivity with @QuantumCorp @StorNext solution http://qntm.co/1Q84ETC]

    Rapid Growth Demands a New Approach to Storage
    Platinum Platypus creates video, motion graphics and animation for everything from Hollywood movies and the NFL to corporate boardrooms, but the company began as a startup with a small production team and a few Macs. As success brought the company more and bigger projects, its use of portable drives for file sharing grew unsustainable, requiring extensive coordination. Its subsequent use of a file-hosting service failed to provide the speed of access critical to meeting tight deadlines. The company's increasing involvement in large-scale projects -- with footage shot in 5K resolution, often with heavy CGI -- caused major delays that created a backlog and prevented the business from seizing new opportunities.

    "As our work continued to attract more potential clients, we found ourselves being asked questions like 'Can you do these movie scenes for us right now?' and 'I've got a Fortune 500 client sending video from three continents. Can you handle it?' " said Pete Sussi, president of Platinum Platypus. "We wanted to say yes, but the backlog got so big and the delays were so long that we needed to do something different to be able to keep growing the business."

    Addressing Current and Future Needs With StorNext Pro Studio
    Knowing that Quantum's StorNext workflow storage is used by major motion picture studios and large postproduction houses, Platinum Platypus called on Quantum to help it identify the optimal workflow storage solution for a small but quickly growing company with a limited budget. With Sussi and his team, Quantum assessed the specific needs of the business and its projects, as well as the company's growth trajectory, and then specified a StorNext Pro Studio workflow storage solution that would meet current performance needs and provide a smart path for future expansion.

    StorNext Pro Studio is a complete appliance-based workflow storage solution designed for smaller media production companies that need streaming performance and room to grow. The Platinum Platypus StorNext Pro Studio solution includes a dual-redundant StorNext M441D metadata controller and high-speed QX-1200 RAID storage. The company added to that a Brocade Fibre Channel fabric, along with a Quantum Scalar LTO library to provide long-term retention of the digital assets. With copies of the company's work maintained on the Quantum Scalar library, the Platinum Platypus team can retrieve older projects quickly and better meet customer requests for repurposing or re-use of finished video content.

    Building a Faster, Better Workflow
    Quantum managed the installation in a way that kept ongoing Platinum Platypus projects on schedule. The racking, configuration and tuning of the StorNext Pro Studio, fabric and library was completed rapidly, after which the Platinum Platypus team was able to work once again with all its usual Adobe Creative Suite applications, with files that were presented through the Mac OS interface. Today within the new StorNext-enabled workflow, all content is ingested into the Quantum system, which gives the entire creative team access to the same files over high-speed Fibre Channel connections to the RAID array. As the company continues to take on new clients and projects, StorNext Pro Studio also will provide a highly scalable foundation for further growth.

    "StorNext Pro Studio has helped my company realize gains in terms of speed, time and money," added Sussi. "I really can't see how the growth that we've had in the past year could have happened without the Quantum storage solution. If I could tell a business that's in the same predicament that we were in four or five years ago, I would say, 'What you need is a Quantum solution.' "

Through his personal experience, Dr. Cappello developed a line of patented and patent pending nutraceuticals that contain the science of stem cell nutrition. The products include Multi-vitamins and Stem Cell supplements, an Anti-Aging line, Weight Management line, Male Wellness, Joint and Cardio support. Cellaviv was originally made available through a direct sales channel, establishing a large number of loyal customers whose support was also compensated for referrals.

    Arizona Mining increases resource on Taylor Deposit to 39.4 million tonnes at 11 % ZnEq

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - Arizona Mining Inc. ("Arizona Mining" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a resource update for the Taylor Zn-Pb-Ag sulfide deposit located on its Hermosa Project in Santa Cruz County, Arizona USA. The deposit now comprises 39.4 million tonnes in accordance with the NI 43-101 Inferred Mineral Resource category grading 11.04% zinc equivalent ("ZnEq") utilizing a 6% ZnEq cutoff grade.

    CEO Jim Gowans commented, "This updated resource estimate confirms what the drill results and geology have been telling us for some time - that we have the potential makings of a significant zinc/lead/silver deposit. All drill holes completed since we initiated the drill campaign in the fall of 2014 encountered relatively high grade sulfide mineralization over significant thicknesses. The deposit remains open for expansion to the north, west and south over ground controlled by the Company and will be tested through an extensive drill campaign. This resource estimate, combined with the expansion potential and recently released metallurgical results, clearly indicate that the Taylor Deposit could be one of the best growth stories in base metals for 2016."

    Taylor Deposit Inferred Mineral Resources

    Zn Eq% Cutoff Zn Eq% Grade Tonnes (Mt) Pb% Zn% Cu% Ag g/t ------------- ------------ ---------- --- --- --- ------ 3 8.01 72.3 3.21 3.23 0.10 50.78 --- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- 4 8.98 59.5 3.63 3.63 0.11 55.78 --- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- 5 9.98 48.7 4.04 4.03 0.12 61.25 --- ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- 6 11.04 39.4 4.48 4.48 0.14 66.91 --- ----- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- 8 12.89 27.2 5.24 5.26 0.16 76.35 --- ----- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- 12 16.80 12.1 6.88 6.84 0.21 97.90 --- ----- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----- 15 19.70 6.6 8.26 7.80 0.27 113.75 --- ----- --- ---- ---- ---- ------ 20 24.57 2.2 10.37 9.86 0.34 133.64 --- ----- --- ----- ---- ---- ------

    Results are based on a ZnEq grade calculated with the following metal prices: $0.85/lb for lead and zinc; $2.25/lb for copper; $15/oz for silver. It is recognized for the Taylor Deposit that while Zn and Pb contribute approximately equally to the resource calculations, we have chosen to report Zn equivalents for calculation of the cut-off grade and the equivalents grade for the resource. Base Case highlighted.

    The resource is based on assay results from 25 surface diamond drill holes, totaling 19,648 meters (64,461 feet) of drilling, which have all intersected stratabound carbonate replacement sulfide mineralization within the Taylor Deposit. The updated Mineral Resource Estimate was prepared by Metal Mining Consultants Inc. of Highlands Ranch, Colorado.

    Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of mineral resources will be converted to mineral reserves. Inferred Mineral Resources are based on limited drilling (25 holes) which suggests the greatest uncertainty for a resource estimate and that geological continuity is only implied. Additional drilling will be required to verify geological and mineralization continuity and there is no certainty that all of the inferred resources will be converted to measured and indicated resources. Quantity and grades are estimates and are rounded to reflect the fact that the resource estimate is an approximation.

    Discontinuous and isolated pods of mineralization were excluded from the mineral resource estimate. Excluded blocks do not represent mineable volumes of material and do not meet the reasonable prospects of eventual economic extraction for resource classification. Continuous blocks, that imply continuity of mineralization, were further evaluated to establish a breakeven ZnEq cutoff grade. It is assumed that industry standard froth flotation will be used as the mineral processing method. Assumptions used to calculate a breakeven ZnEq cut-off grade are $US45.75/tonne (mining, processing and G&A), 85% zinc recovery and $US0.85 per lb. zinc selling price. A breakeven ZnEq cut-off grade of 3% was estimated. A 6% ZnEq grade was selected as the Base Case cut-off grade for this updated resource estimate.

    Mineral Resource Model
    A total of three geologic domains were modeled for the Taylor Deposit (Manto, Top and Bottom), which consists of stratabound skarn and massive sulfide carbonate (limestone) replacement mineralization. The Top and Bottom domains were created to define the upper and lower limits of sulfide mineralization which typically is the boundary between the overlying Cretaceous volcanic units and lower Concha, Scherrer, Epitaph carbonate units, as well as two oxidized ore types. Within the Top and Bottom domains are horizons of sulfide and oxide mineralization. Sulfide mineralization is hosted in intervals marked as containing no iron oxide minerals but containing sulfide minerals of lead, zinc, copper and iron. Oxide mineralization, those zones in the core containing predominantly iron oxide, is mineralogically different from the sulfide mineralization and is excluded from this mineral estimate.

    The mineral resource was estimated using 19,648 meters (64,461 feet) of drilling from 25 drill holes that intercepted sulfide mineralization associated with the Taylor Deposit. Composites were constructed using 20 feet (6.1 meter) down-the-hole composite lengths. A total of 2,646 x 20 ft (6.1 meter) Ag composites and 2,647 x 20 ft. (6.1 meter) Cu, Pb and Zn composites were used to estimate the mineral resource. Metal grades were interpolated using inverse distance to the fifth (ID5). Estimation parameters were determined by the trend of the mineralization, and strike and dip of the lithologic units that host the deposit.

    Qualified Person
    Scott Wilson, President of Metal Mining Consultants, is an independent qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and has approved and verified the information in this news release in relation to the Taylor Deposit resource estimates. Mr. Wilson is a Certified Professional Geologist and member of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (CPG #10965) and a Registered Member (#4025107) of the Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration, Inc., a professional association and designation recognized by the Canadian regulatory authorities.

    Assays and Quality Assurance/Quality Control
    To ensure reliable sample results, the Company has a rigorous QA/QC program in place that monitors the chain-of-custody of samples and includes the insertion of blanks, duplicates, and certified reference standards at statistically derived intervals within each batch of samples. Core is photographed and split in half with one-half retained in a secured facility for verification purposes.

    Post March 2014, sample preparation (crushing and pulverizing) has been performed at ALS Minerals Laboratories, an ISO/IEC accredited lab located in Tucson, Arizona. ALS Minerals Laboratories prepares a pulp of all samples and sends the pulps to their analytical laboratory in Vancouver, B.C. Canada for analysis. ALS analyzes the pulp sample by ICP following a 4-acid digestion (ME-ICP61 for 33 elements) including Cu (copper), Pb (lead), and Zn (zinc). All samples in which Cu (copper), Pb (lead), or Zn (zinc) are greater than 10,000 ppm are rerun using four acid digestion with an ICP - AES finish (Cu-OG62;Pb-OG62; and Zn-OG62) with the elements reported in percentage (%). Silver values are determined by ICP ((ME-ICP61) with all samples with silver values greater than 100 ppm repeated using four acid digestion with an ICP-AES finish (Ag-OG62) calibrated for higher levels of silver contained. Any values over 1,500 ppm Ag triggers a fire assay with gravimetric finish analysis.

    About Arizona Mining
    Arizona Mining Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company focused on the exploration and development of its 80% owned Hermosa Project located in Santa Cruz County, Arizona. The Taylor Deposit, a lead-zinc-silver carbonate replacement deposit, has a resource of 39.4 million tonnes in the Inferred Mineral Resource category grading 11% zinc equivalent ("ZnEq") utilizing a 6% ZnEq cutoff grade calculated in accordance with NI 43-101 guidelines. The Taylor Deposit remains open to the north, west and south over land controlled by the Company and will be aggressively drilled to test the limits of the resource.

    Priceline.com puts it on the Line with New Strategy, User Experience and Multi-Platform Advertising Campaign, Pivots from 'Priceline Negotiator'Travel Company overhauls user experience; doubles properties available to book; builds faster, easier to use, cross-platform product

    NORWALK, Conn., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Priceline.com, part of The Priceline Group and a leader in online and mobile travel that has saved customers over $10 billion since launch, today announced the roll-out of a fresh strategy, user experience and multi-platform advertising campaign. Today's modern traveler takes shorter and more frequent trips, according to priceline.com data, and the company's new strategy will help customers connect with deals faster and more easily than before.

    "Priceline.com has incredible deals in travel and we've now made it easier for customers to find them so they can take that trip," stated Paul Hennessy, priceline.com's Chief Executive Officer. "We took a hard look at today's behavioral trends and they reveal travel's core truth: travelers take more trips to visit family in places like Rome, Georgia than trips of a lifetime to places like Rome, Italy. A drastically improved product initiative and an expansive increase in available properties, followed by a complete site and app refresh, has put our hotel, rental car and air partners' content in the spotlight so that no matter what kind of trip you need to take, we've put it on the line for you."

    New strategic direction to highlight choices
    The impact of technology has fundamentally changed consumer behavior in travel and mobile technology and has led to rapid growth in access and content. Dedicated to offering consumers both broad availability and great deals, the company recently added over 300,000 properties of all types, including apartments and condos, and properties offering free cancellations and pay-at-arrival. Working with the best partners in the travel landscape, priceline.com now has one of the largest selections of luxury rental cars available and a completely redesigned mobile flight product. Over the years, the company has reinvented itself from a bidding model to a predominantly published price model with deeper discounts available through Express Deals(R) and the lowest price possible through Name Your Own Price(R).

    The new advertising campaign: "Whatever's On the Line, Priceline"
    Priceline.com's new, multi-platform advertising campaign focuses on the life choices consumers make every day, from flying to a cousin's wedding or a job interview, to visiting colleges with a son or daughter. The company is pivoting from its iconic 'Priceline Negotiator,' William Shatner, to now telling the pros and cons of everyday travel decisions, while reassuring consumers they should - and can afford to - take the trip. William Shatner will remain with the brand in his new role as narrator, providing humorous voiceover for every decision.

    "The modern traveler is taking more last-minute, short duration, and frequent trips for work or pleasure, and we bring them deals, availability and easy-to-use platforms whatever the budget," said Brett Keller, Chief Operating Officer at priceline.com. "When we were building our new advertising campaign with BBDO, we wanted to communicate that every trip mattered and that priceline.com had the deals - because for every trip, there's something on the line: love, money, career, family, or sports. We also insisted the campaign be as funny as Shatner... and they nailed it."

    The new advertising campaign will debut during the pre-game show at Super Bowl 50 on Feb 7, 2016 with the first spot, entitled "Cousins." The full series of five commercial advertisements will roll out during the first quarter of the year, with each spot posing the same question: "to go or not go." The company will premiere its most high-profile spot during NBA All Star weekend, featuring NBA veterans Latrell Sprewell and the 'Admiral' David Robinson in a matchup of notorious vs. glorious, highlighting why you should definitely take the trip.

    For the first time in the brand's history, priceline.com will pre-launch a national brand campaign using Facebook's extensive mobile targeting platform. The multi-faceted mobile video campaign, which will begin today, leverages Facebook's unique ability to target life moments with its mobile audience. The custom video content will connect with users through a series of personalized pieces as they learn of their friends' life moments from status changes and daily updates.

    Streamlined, cross-platform user experience
    Steeped in data analytics, priceline.com's new product strategy is focused on personalization and speed. The average customer books more than half (51% in 2016 according to eMarketer) of their travel on a mobile platform and that number continues to grow. Of both "average travelers" and "heavy users" (12-15 trips), 75% of mobile bookings on priceline.com are reserved for same day or next day check-in. Already well-known for deals, priceline.com is removing complexity within the user experience to allow customers to find deals more quickly and with improved cross-platform capabilities. Over the last few years, priceline.com has developed products such as Deals Near Me, where a traveler can make a reservation for a room off an interstate when he or she gets tired, or Tonight-Only Deals(R), where last-minute customers can tap into special deals. In the first half of 2016, consumers will continue to see changes, including a faster and more streamlined user experience, a site refresh with a new homepage, increased content and deals, interactive maps online and in the app, and additional discounts for signed-in customers based on favorite and frequent trips.

    For more on the campaign, visit www.priceline.com/media and follow priceline.com on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.com

    About Priceline.com
    At priceline.com, part of The Priceline Group [NASDAQ: PCLN], we believe every trip matters. We provide travelers smart and easy ways to save on hotel rooms, airline tickets, rental cars, vacation packages and cruises. With access to over 600,000 properties of all types, consumers can find accommodations with a Best Price Guarantee as well as free cancellations and pay-at-arrival. Priceline.com's Express Deals(R) offers exclusive savings without bidding and our famous Name Your Own Price(R) service delivers the lowest prices available.
