India's Animation hubs are overtaking the Philippines, Korea and Taipei.

Quote:
Come alive with the hot buzzword, Animation
Tuesday - Jul 31, 2007
Televisionpoint.com Correspondent

Major companies like Walt Disney, Imax and Sony are continuously outsourcing cartoon characters and special effects to India that is enjoying its newfound status as a preferred destination for outsourcing thanks to low production costs. In fact it is steadily overtaking the Philippines, Korea and Taipei.
With the big studios having state-of-the-art facilities equipped with SGI, 3DMax and SoftImage, Maya, SFX and processing motion capture facilities in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Trivandrum, India is now a global player in this industry. Today there are a number of animation training studios in Mumbai and students have plenty to choose from.

Hanuman, a 2D animation movie, was a major success in the country. However, the honour of being the first animated film in India goes to Ashok Kaul's Bhaggmati: The Queen of Fortunes (2005). Hanuman's success story lies, perhaps in its simple storyline. The film traces the journey of this mythical God cum superhero, from his days as a cute miracle-working baby to his ultimate triumph in the army of Lord Ram.

Thanks to history. If you observe history, it is easy to find that education has very special importance in Trivandrum. It dates back to many centuries. In 18th century, the observatory was created in Trivandrum for astronomical research. Also institutions such as engineering colleges started here first.

The research interest is fueled by citi's premier educational institutions
Prestigious institutions like CET, IITM-K, many numbers of Engineering / Science colleges, Medical /Ayurveda / Homeo institutions, management institutions like IMG/ASB/IIHM etc are fueling this phenomenon.
9. Summary
City is growing as an international knowledge hub



Trailer: Real estate lobbies in some places, where the contribution (IT & Hi-Tech) is still at infant state are hyping from all the cylinders. One can not imagine how much they would have hyped if they had this much Research or IT in real action.

The Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IISST), a prestigious academic project of the Indian Space Research Organisation, is all set for take-off in Thiruvananthapruam

The curriculum at the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology is modelled along the lines of what is being offered by the Indian Institutes of Technology and at other top-notch institutes conducting programmes in electronics and communication, mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering

The Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology will enable students to further help develop the country’s prowess in space technology, one that has led to the launch of rockets like the PSLV-C7
In short, every system is ‘go’ for September when Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is expected to lay the foundation stone for the institute, which will eventually come up amidst picturesque settings at Ponmudi, near Thiruvananthapuram

Gr8 work Sathya. Looks like TVM got the real development in all fields unlike other places in the country where mostly the real estate boom is goin on...
Many of the realtors are cheaters. They show beautiful perspectives and don't keep their promises. It seems one of the big real estate groups in kerala (ad with our great singer appears) have already cheated the customers...

Thanks Sreekumar.
What you said is correct. All over the world those black sheeps are there. They go and buy cheap land and then start hyping it without any base. They can even buy media and reporters. Some of the channels are already airing the paid programs without labeling as advertisements.
Here is a real story happened to me 2-3 days back.

One broker approached me (for selling a flat in a particular place). He told me about several IT initiatives and finally said ‘X ‘company is planning to employ some 1 lakh people in 2 years. He did not know that I am working for this ‘X’ company. I told him that I am working for the ‘X’ company and I will be happy if I can find some 3000 people in next 2 years. Then I said I do not have money. Still he was not willing to give up. He told me that I will get 25000 rent in the same area within next 2 years and you can easily pay EMI.

This is how they are trapping people into debt. I do not deny that fact that appreciation will be there. But see how much it is hyped.

Many people do not know that IT can not happen overnight and it has its own constraints. So their prey is mainly people from non-IT area. The sad part is that once people realize the facts, they must have lost the money already. My view is that in such situation we should make the media accountable. But again they are very good at washing off their hands.

Thanks Raj,



Accentia Technologies acquires two U.S. firms

Staff Reporter

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Accentia Technologies, at the Technopark campus here, has acquired two IT companies based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the United States (U.S.). The GRS Physicians Billing Services and the GRS Systems are both established brands in the U.S. health care insurance field.

With this acquisition, Accentia Technologies gains control over two entities that provide billing and collection services to over 600 hospitals, clinics and their insurance collaborators in the U.S.

Chief Executive Officer of Accentia Technologies Pradeep Viswambharan entered the IT industry with the establishment of Geosoft, a medical transcription company in Technopark, and later Iridium, a business process outsourcing firm.

Recently, after taking over the Mumbai-based Accentia Technologies, Mr. Viswambharan had merged Geosoft and Iridium with it to expand the capital base, which is expected to grow to Rs.100 crore during the current fiscal. “We expect to reach the target in 2007 itself, considering the value of the two U.S. companies acquired and some more acquisitions on the way,” Mr. Pradeep said.

Accentia Technologies plans to build its own campus in the State capital to provide employment to over 1,000 hands in the near future.

Setting sail yet again
Thursday August 9 2007 09:15 IST
T'PURAM: The State Government on Wednesday floated fresh global tenders for the prestigious Vizhinjam Container Transshipment Project.

According to the new estimates, the initial project cost enveloping facilities and equipment is estimated to be Rs 2,390 crore. The firms are to submit bids by 4.30 pm on October 31 2007.

A consortium led by two Chinese firms had won the original bids in 2005, but was denied clearance by the Centre citing security concerns, forcing the state to think of fresh tenders.

The Vizhinjam International Seaport Ltd (VISL), the company formed by the state to develop external infrastructure for the project, has floated the fresh tenders, Law and Ports Minister M Vijayakumar said on Wednesday. VISL CEO and Ports Secretary L Radhakrishnan is the project licensor.

The port is planned in three phases, and once it is completed, mother ships of up to 12,000 TEUs can berth here. The 16-m depth available at the location would be increased to 18.7 m in a phased manner. The completed port is expected to handle 1.8 million containers a year.
The Request for Proposal (RFP) documents cost Rs 30,000, but those who had bid in 2005 can get them free. L&T Ramboll Consulting Engineers Ltd are the technical consultants for the project. After the Centre had rejected the initial bid, the State Government, in April 2007, conducted an Investors’ Meet — the first for a single project — in Thiruvananthapuram that attracted 43 Indian and foreign firms.
Companies like the Russian Rosoboron which handles Russian defence deals, Rajeev Chandrasekhar’s Jupiter Infrastructure and Gammon India have shown interest in the project.

It is interesting to see technopark's growth. Past 2 years it has added around 10000 people.

Quote:
A four member delegation from Kuwait Finance House visited Technopark and held discussions with Senior Manager (Business Development) Technopark Mr. M. Vasudevan. The delegates included Mr.Ali O. Al-Ghannaam, Dept Manager-International Real Estate Dept; Mr. Abdul Naser A. Al-Subaih, Deputy Assistant GM-Investment Sector; Mr. Mohammad Jalal Uddin, Senior Investment Manager, International Real Estate Dept; Mr. Mathew Thomas, Investment Risk Manager, Investment Sector. They were highly impressed by Kerala and the Technopark campus and expressed their interest in investing in IT/ITES cos. in Kerala.

Every year; we see claims from one of the most unclean cities about overtaking it(TP). But each time they are getting dissapointed. How many years will it take? 1, 2, 3, 4...
It is funny to see their frustruation to wrong target and the foul mouth resulted due to this.They must have used this against their corrupt local administration (also to their ministers) which is dumping money to black holes. Any way we have this fun treat occassionally.

We are all here to see the realities in IT, the facts(in numbers) happening in Kerala. Not going to run away. People can judge the credibilities by comparing the claims and real numbers

ISRO is saving billions for India. Planning to go commercial too. Now India is the second country in the world with this technology.
Many of the research products are used in medical industry.

Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSCC), Thiruvananthapuram, has designed, developed and tested the scramjet as part of the ongoing work on air-breathing propulsion. VSSC demonstrated the scramjet for seven seconds at Mach 6 (six times the speed of sound) through a series of ground tests.

The complex air-breathing rockets under development use atmospheric oxygen during flight, while today's rockets carry both the oxygen and the fuel. As such they will be lighter, more efficient and cost some 15 times less than the conventional ones.

The next step would be to test it on ground at Sriharikota, enhance to Mach 10 and then on a Rohini sounding rocket, "which would be a major achievement," a spokesman said. An actual rocket using this technology would be at least 10 years away.

According to the release, "Other than US, which has recently carried out in-flight demonstration of supersonic combustion for a short duration (at a record Mach 10), work related to supersonic combustor designs in Japan, China, Russia, Australia, Europe and others are either in their initial or ground testing phase."

Current launchers cannot be re-used. The cost per kg of payload of such systems is a high $12,000-15,000 per kg. To make space transport more affordable, this cost has to be cut to $500-1,000 per kg. It will need both, a reusable and recoverable system and a more efficient propulsion system like air-breathing rockets. This is what space-faring nations are working at.

Global tenders floated for international seaport project
Project cost estimated at $580 million

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The proposed deep-sea container terminal at Vizhinjam, near here, for which the facilitating agency has now floated global tenders, will have facilities for receiving the biggest ships currently transporting goods across the continents, according to Ports Minister M. Vijayakumar.

Vizhinjam International Seaport Limited (VISL), the company formed by the State Government as the nodal agency for the execution of this dream project of Kerala, floated global tenders for the project on Wednesday.

Mr. Vijayakumar said the port, at the completion of its first phase of development, would be able to receive ships of up to 8,000 TEU (Twenty Equivalent Units). The project is conceived in such a way that, in the subsequent phase of its development, ships of even 12,000 TEU could easily berth at the port. The biggest ships currently on the international sea routes do not exceed 9,500 TEU in capacity, he said.

The project cost is estimated at the level of $580 million (about Rs.2,390 crore). The Government had appointed a company called IL&FS Infrastructure Development Corporation as the strategic adviser for the project. The technical consultants for the project are L&T-RAMBOLL Consulting Engineers Limited, ROGGE Marine Consulting GMBH of Germany, RAMBOLL of Denmark and L&T Capital Company Limited.

Vizhinjam is located 8 km south of the State capital Thiruvananthapuram, on the west coast of the country. The biggest advantage of the location is its proximity to international shipping routes and the East-West shipping axis. The seabed here has a 20-metre contour depth within one nautical mile of the coast. The sea here has little littoral drift close to the coast and, therefore, requires hardly any maintenance dredging, Mr. Vijayakumar said.

Private developers have been advised to first assess their eligibility on the basis of the stipulations given in the ‘qualification criteria’ before obtaining the ‘request for proposal’ documents.

New 50.2 crore studio at Kazhakkuttam, planning to inaugurate by October, Now Prasad lab(in the same Park) is doing 70% of post production work for Kerala Film industry.
Compact Disc to set up animation studio in Kerala
9 Aug, 2007, 1615 hrs IST, PTI

MUMBAI: Compact Disc on Thursday said it will set up an animation studio at the Kerala Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (KINFRA) SEZ at an initial investment of 12.40 million dollars (nearly Rs 50.2 crore).

"This is a significant milestone for the Indian animation industry, as for the first time an integrated animation studio will enable producers to develop films at just one studio, Compact Disc Chairman Suresh Kumar informed BSE.

"Initially, we aim to develop three animation films in partnership with international media agencies and MNCs," he added.

The studio, with an initial capital of 12.40 million dollars and commencing by October, would be spread out over a space of 60,000 sq ft and would employ over 300 people, the animation Outsourcing company said.

The company has asked KINFRA Special Economic Zone (SEZ) authorities to provide space on lease rental basis for their incubation centre to start operations immediately.

KINFRA is India's first SEZ developed exclusively for animation and gaming.

Shares of the company were last trading at Rs 60.35, up 4.96 per cent on BSE.

Again back to research. Now it is Sree Chitra's turn

New heart valve being developed

Saturday August 11 2007 14:40 IST
T'URAM: Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology is in the process of developing a new heart valve. This innovative valve will be MRI compatible and the clinical trials of this valve will begin next month.

This was disclosed by Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology director Dr K. Mohandas while delivering the keynote address at the Inter-Media Publicity Co-ordination Committee meeting here on Friday. He said Vision 2020・envisages meeting 50 percent of the requirements of the Indian medical devices industry through indigenous production. For this, the biomedical technology wing of the institute would be adequately strengthened. Since its inception, the institute has filed 107 patents of which 62 technologies have already been developed and 21 technology transfers have been effected. For diseases causing movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, deep brain stimulation technique has proved to be very effective and the Sree Chitra Institute was one of the few institutions in the country providing this treatment, Dr K. Mohandas said.
