 MOVE OVER ZOOM: BEACON®, A REVOLUTIONARY VIDEO CONFERENCING SERVICE, WILL CHANGE THE WAY WE COMMUNICATE

Competitive New Service Features End-to-End Encryption, Premium Audio & Video,

and a Simple User-Friendly Experience

 

Are you fatigued by the outdated, unsecure video conferencing options available today? Worried your personal and business conversations aren’t truly secure? Well, move over Zoom and meet Beacon®. Now available, Beacon is a revolutionary video and voice conferencing platform that is the first of its kind with end-to-end encryption and focused on privacy, security and user experience – foundational elements of the multi-billion-dollar videogame industry on which Beacon was created – that will change the way we work, live and communicate.

As the global Coronavirus outbreak forced people around the world to work from home, video and voice conferencing use skyrocketed. This sudden increase in use exposed security gaps and allowed unauthorized access to customer data, which according to BleepingComputer, resulted in “over 500,000 Zoom accounts being sold on the dark web and hacker forums for less than a penny each, and in some cases, given away for free.”

“Video and voice conferencing industries have been forced into accelerated growth, although existing platforms have a surprising disregard for privacy and security and little concern for user experience,” said Angel Munoz, developer of Beacon and founder/CEO of Mass Luminosity, a Dallas-based global technology, research and development company. “Beacon was designed to augment natural interaction through exceptional video and voice communication, while safeguarding confidentiality and protecting user identity. Based on the same augmented reality seen in video games, Beacon pushes technology to the max making you feel as though you are in the same room with another person...getting you as close to a real experience as possible.”

Recognized as the father of modern esports, Munoz and his team created Beacon with a mission to integrate people into augmented environments and built it from the ground up on three core principles: security, quality and simplicity. “It will change your perception of what video communication should look and sound like, with security measures that leave others in the dust. Beacon was developed with human perception in mind and a purpose of bringing people together in a way that has truly never been seen before,” Munoz added.

With particular application for numerous industries, including the finance, government, medical and legal communities, Beacon offers instant connection and reconnection, Ultra HD video, 3D binaural audio, widescreen aspect ratio, higher resolution and frames per second, color saturation, a plethora of interactive tools, and a patented transfer technology that rivals competitors with its four-second connect speed. It is simple to use with just one click in a web browser, making it accessible to everyone from students to CEOs. Beacon’s state-of-the-art encryption guards communication, ensuring confidentiality and protecting it from prying eyes. Even more unique is Beacon’s ability to instantly translate in up to 82 languages.

“We interact daily with many communications and commerce systems. The clarity and security of these solutions are paramount to our effectiveness and success.  We are privileged to represent Mass Luminosity, which has developed Beacon—a proprietary, next-generation, fully integrated communication, commerce, and streaming platform that delivers a private, secure, in-the-room experience. We are using it ourselves, and it has materially enhanced our impact,” says Richard Ornitz, Chairman of Infralinx.

Beacon is perfect for those seeking a unique experience, from casual users to enterprise champions. Available now is Beacon X, which allows unlimited free conferencing for up to six users. Additional plans rolling out later this year include: Beacon PLUS, a premium version for up to 25 users at $4.95/month, and Beacon MAX, which will allow up to 100 users and voice calling for $14.95/month. For more information, visit www.BeaconX.com.

To celebrate the launch, Beacon created a global giveaway, named Beacon® INFINITE, offering 85 secondary prizes and a sensational grand prize, a 2022 Tesla Model 3 valued at $40,000. To register, visit www.BeaconX.com/INFINITE.

Many of Dallas’ most influential business and civic leaders recently gathered to support Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep’s inaugural fall fundraiser, Grove to Grove. Last month, Honorary Event Chairs Carolyn and Jere Thompson, Co-Chairs Karen and Mark Carney and additional host committee members attended a private reception at the home of event Co-Chairs Patty and Mark Langdale where school leaders and students shared insights on the positive influence Cristo Rey Dallas is having on its surrounding community of Pleasant Grove and the immeasurable impact the event will have on its students’ future.

Grove to Grove will take place Friday, September 23, 2016 at 3015 Trinity Groves and committee hosts, including Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, J.C. Penney CEO Marvin Ellison, incoming Crystal Charity Ball Chair Pam Perella and community volunteer Beth Thoele, have volunteered their time and talent leading up to the highly anticipated event. Funds raised throughout the evening, which will feature live entertainment, a seated dinner and silent auction, will directly benefit the students of Cristo Rey Dallas and provide the financing necessary for the enhancement of on-campus facilities.

“Cristo Rey Dallas is continuously striving to bridge the gap between north and south Dallas — between education and opportunity — and we are so grateful to all of the host committee members who have gathered here tonight and who so strongly believe in the work we’re doing,” said Cristo Rey Dallas President Kelby Woodard. “Grove to Grove is about fostering a relationship between our school community, the Pleasant Grove community, and members of the Dallas business community. But most importantly, the event will further Cristo Rey Dallas’ mission to enable our students to become men and women of purpose and service.”

In addition to Woodard, attendees heard from Cristo Rey Dallas Board Chairman Richard Joyner, Grove to Grove Co-Chairs Karen Carney and Patty Langdale and Cristo Rey Dallas students Lauren and Viviana, who thanked committee members for supporting a school that is helping them pursue their dreams. The high school freshmen also spoke about their experience at CBRE and Meadows, Collier, Reed, Cousins, Crouch & Ungerman through the school’s innovative Corporate Work Study Program. The model allows students to gain firsthand work experience at some of the country’s largest and most respected corporations. Through the program, partners like AT&T, Ernst & Young, Hunt Oil Group and KPMG cover 60 percent of students’ tuition costs and provide them with entry-level positions that teach participants invaluable skills and prepare them for a lifetime of leadership.

“It’s our hope that Grove to Grove will serve as a connecting point between our students and individuals in the Dallas business community who would like to be a part of the incredible work happening through this program,” said Cristo Rey Dallas Corporate Work Study Director Gunnar Rawlings. “We see remarkable transformations take place daily in the lives of students who participate in our Corporate Work Study Program. They are excited to learn. They are eager to better themselves. They are passionate about making a difference in their communities and using what they learn in the office and in the classroom to help others. Through Grove to Grove, Cristo Rey Dallas will be able to continue empowering these students to have a tremendous positive impact, not only on our city but on the world.”
