Raleigh, NC, April 19, 2017—The Sixth Flag, Inc. is excited to announce that dewdrop.tsf, the patented and acclaimed watermarking technology, will be made available for standalone and third party applications. Dewdrop.tsf overlays a session-based watermark on all application and desktop screens that contain session-specific information. Should a screen be shared via a screenshot or even a photograph, system administrators can determine specific data of the compromise, including the user, time and other relevant information.
“We have been receiving many requests to make dewdrop.tsf available for standalone uses and for uses incorporated into other platforms,” said Pete Kofod, CEO, and founder of The Sixth Flag. “We believe that dewdrop.tsf is yet another compelling feature of our flagship DaaS offering, but understand many organizations need the watermarking functions of dewdrop.tsf to run on premise-based systems.”
“Furthermore, we are receiving numerous inquiries from various industry leaders to license and include dewdrop.tsf in their application. We are excited to make dewdrop available to these organizations.” Dewdrop is a beautiful and compelling watermarking technology. Organizations that require users to work with highly confidential systems are looking to dewdrop.tsf to further discourage data disclosure. Unauthorized data disclosure from trusted insiders is a significant problem, but because of the embarrassing nature of such leaks, details tend to remain closely held by the affected parties.
“We see dewdrop.tsf as being of great value to organizations that deal with legal, financial, personnel and intellectual property matters”, says Shane Yocum, Vice President of The Sixth Flag. “Particularly, if the information belongs to third parties, the risk and consequences of malicious, or even unintended, disclosure tend to be very high.”

March 16, 2017 – IK Multimedia is proud to present the new Fulltone® Collection for AmpliTube for Mac/PC, which offers guitarists and all musicians an essential palette of sounds that span from classic to contemporary tones.
Boutique sound for the discerning musician
Guitarist and composer Michael Fuller founded Fulltone back in 1991, with the aim of building stompboxes that sounded as good as vintage pedals, but that were more rugged and reliable than the old, often fragile classics. Today, Fulltone is recognized as being one of the most committed and scrupulous manufacturers worldwide.
IK Multimedia’s Fulltone® Collection includes 3 powerful processors that are equally at home in music production as well as in creative sound design. Guitarists, keyboard players, composers, producers, sound designers and mixing engineers can now take advantage of all the mojo and feel of the original Fulltone hardware but with all the practicality of AmpliTube’s well-known ease of use.
TERC – That 80’s Rack Chorus!®
Recreated by Fulltone and based on the original, nearly impossible-to-find Dyno My Piano unit (sold during the 80’s as Songbird or Dytronics), the TERC gives you that lush, expansive, huge and elegant chorus sound that made it so famous during the 80’s and was regularly used by some of the world’s top session guitarists such as Michael Landau, Steve Lukather, Dann Huff and many others. Despite its typically retro character not only is the TERC still very modern, but its timeless sonic signature works wonders on all kinds of material.
SSTE® – Solid State Tape Echo
The Solid State Tape Echo captures the full essence, warmth and vibe of the original Echoplex EP-3, but without its unavoidable drawbacks – the original unit was very noisy, featuring low-quality tape heads and would produce lots of hum. Fulltone’s SSTE fixes these issues, greatly enhancing the machine’s response and capabilities. IK Multimedia have recreated the SSTE in virtual rack format with added bpm sync function, offering ultimate DAW integration and sonic versatility.
OCD® – Overdrive Pedal
The OCD overdrive pedal is already a classic. It gives the sound more grit, punch and the same kind of touch sensitivity, warmth and complex harmonics that characterize a quality tube amp. The OCD is the “icing on the cake” that makes the Fulltone Collection perfect for all genres and styles of music.
Pricing and availability
The Fulltone Collection is available from the IK Online store and from within AmpliTube Custom Shop at $/€59.99*.
The TERC and SSTE can be purchased as single processors for just $/€34.99 each.
The OCD is available as a single pedal at $/€24.99.
* All prices excluding taxes

SAN FRANCISCO — Tomorrow UC San Francisco information technology employees will challenge UC Board of Regents’ plan to replace them with lower-paid workers from India. It is the first time a public university has ever offshored American IT work, undermining its own mission to prepare students for high-tech jobs.
WHAT: Workers speak out against offshoring at UC Board of Regents meeting
WHEN: Thursday, Jan. 26 at 9:30 a.m. PST
WHERE: UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center, Robertson Auditorium, 1675 Owens Street, San Francisco. Watch the Livestream here.
WHO: UCSF information technology employees, University Professional Technical Employees-CWA Local 9119, and community leaders
Seventy-nine workers in UCSF’s IT department will lose their middle-class, family-supporting jobs in February.
Last summer, the UC system partnered with HCL, a multinational contractor based in India, to manage IT infrastructure and networking-related services. The contract covers all 10 UC campuses, potentially endangering thousands more IT jobs, but UCSF is the first to test this scheme to slash salary costs.
Since then, HCL and UC have imported Indian workers to UCSF on H-1B visas, which are temporary work permits for “specialty occupations” requiring “highly specialized knowledge.” Congress originally created the visa program to help employers to fill talent gaps — not displace US workers. Yet UC is unscrupulously exploiting a loophole in the law, and adding insult to injury, requiring soon-to-be-laid-off UC employees to train their foreign replacements as a condition of their severance. Eventually, the H-1B visa replacements will depart too, returning to India to train large teams of workers who will do the work for even cheaper.
Members of University Professional Technical Employees-CWA Local 9119 have been mobilizing against the offshoring plan for several months, building public support for the IT workers and spotlighting the responsibilities of public institutions that receive taxpayer funding. Offshoring jeopardizes the privacy of medical center patients, students, faculty, and staff. Troublingly, both UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep Khosla and UC Berkeley Dean of Engineering S. Shankar Sastry sit on the board of HCL.
The Communications Workers of America represents 700,000 workers in private and public sector employment in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. CWA members work in telecommunications and information technology, the airline industry, news media, broadcast and cable television, education, health care and public service, law enforcement, manufacturing and other fields.
