In collaboration with world-class UX/UI design firm Baby Steps and powered by dotstudioPRO’s award-winning Video CMS, the dPRO FAST Engine is a linear channel aggregator that enables streaming platforms to distribute and monetize their Free Ad Supported Linear OTT channels across Mobile, WebOS, tvOS, Android, Tizen, Roku, and HTML5.

dPRO FAST Engine is a complete back-end and front-end solution for streaming FAST Linear Channels, which includes an electronic programming guide (EPG) framework. FAST Engine comes with an award-winning management system helping publishers ingest linear channels from today’s top playout systems, manage monetization with server-side ad insertion through integrations with today’s popular technologies such as Thunderstorm; AdSpring; Publica; and AWS Mediatailor. The system has integrated with disparate EPG delivery formats coming from companies like Amagi, WURL, Frequency, Veset, and Gracenote, creating standardizations through normalizing meta-data and providing simple API end-points.

With its partnership with a leading design agency Baby Steps, dotstudioPRO has developed a world-class UI/UX framework for dPRO FAST Engine. The framework comes with front-end components and an elegant easy-to-use EPG template with SDKs available on all OTT devices to help accelerate application development. This framework enables developers to focus on front-end user experiences rather than wrestling with complex back-end APIs directly. Truly the heavy lifting has been done to launch features and components that are now basic requirements for any streaming service. 

“Our deep experience crafting consumer-focused FAST products is super-charged by the dPRO FAST Engine. We have collaborated closely with dotstudioPRO in designing a best-in-class UI/UX framework, resulting in a well-branded, familiar, frictionless experience for all consumers. dotstudioPRO’s CMS and APIs are purpose-built with strategic flexibility in mind, setting the foundation for an incredible, unique, engaging experience for each and every client and consumer.” – Adam Babkes & Mike Mintz, Owners of Baby Steps

“Together with Baby Steps, we are on a fast-paced track with the development of cutting-edge innovation for the FAST video streaming industry,” said Joe Pascual, Co-Founder, and CTO, dotstudioPRO. “In the recent past, many solutions rightly focused on tools for the content rights holder to create and distribute their branded channels. Now we believe that with our framework, more companies like Local Now and Sports.TV, both currently leading the pack in sports channels (as sighted in a Variety article, on July 27, 2022), will be able to compete and succeed in the direct-to-consumer aggregation business,” Pascual continues. 

dPRO FAST Engine currently services over 400+ linear streaming channels and is tailor-made for any service looking to launch their own Pluto TV or Fubo TV to extend their current On-Demand offering.

Shelton James’ New Book ’40 Acres and a Mule’ is a Compelling Account on the Legacy of the Black Folk From the Southern Plantations

GREENVILLE, Miss. – August 16, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Fulton Books author Shelton James, a second-generation master craftsman, has completed his most recent book “40 Acres and a Mule”: an insightful narrative that highlights the vital role of the Black people in today’s world. This read depicts the perseverance, intelligence, and wisdom of the Black community. Through these characteristics, they maintain their spot as the greatest and most powerful financial natural resources of any ethnic or cultural society in the world. Read more about their legacy in this interesting piece.

James shares, “When slaves were set free, forty acres and a mule were promised to the slaves on the plantation. The ’40 acres’ was the land on the plantation, while ‘the mule’ was the physical body that did the work. Back when Black men were slaves on forty acres of land, you could grow cotton, beans, corn, and wheat. Today, however, on forty acres of land, one could build a billion-dollar football stadium or basketball arena. The physical body code word, (the mule) represents eighty percent African American football and basketball players currently playing today. This book gives a generational consumption of the rebirth of the plantation.”

Published by Fulton Books, Shelton James’ book is an informative short read that digs into the work ethics of the Black people. It also recognizes their excellent skills in leadership and craftsmanship.

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase “40 Acres and a Mule” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.

Chef Hunter Lee’s New Book ‘Louisiana: Recipes of a People’ is the First Cookbook in the Benwood’s Surely Southern Line by Lee, Showcasing Mouthwatering Southern Recipes

NEW ORLEANS – August 16, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Fulton Books author Chef Hunter Lee has completed his most recent book “Louisiana: Recipes of a People”:  an exciting cookbook that invites readers to Join retired chef Hunter Lee on a leisurely culinary stroll through the South and the very heart of Louisiana. This inspiring work kick-starts an adventure that is as interesting and as unique as the culture, people, and families it embodies.

After a 15-year career as a chef/kitchen personality, business owner, food expert with talktochef.com, and restaurant consultant/critic with catering and private chef services in Lafayette, Lake Charles, New Orleans, and Shreveport, Chef Hunter Lee retired to his plantation where he grew up in Mansfield, Louisiana, in 2016, due to health issues.

Lee enjoys being at home on his plantation, spending time with and entertaining friends and family. He’s an avid traveler and is always up for exploring new restaurants across the South and East Coast.

As of 2021, Hunter Lee LLC, the parent company of Benwood’s Surely Southern, was taken over by and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Hunter Lee Mannies Trust. After the merger, Hunter Lee LLC has worked on expanding Benwood’s seasoning line into full production as well as releasing new products to the lineup. This is the first of three cookbooks written by Chef Hunter Lee to be released in the Benwood’s Surely Southern series.

Chef Hunter Lee discusses the meaning behind his passion for food, sharing, “Food is the special magic that brings people together in the South. I hope you enjoyed this look into life and the love of food here in Louisiana, past and present. I’m honored to have done what I did and where I did it. I’m also so honored to get to share it with you. Remember: treat your kitchen, treat yourself.”

Published by Fulton Books, Chef Hunter Lee’s book offers an eclectic mix of old, new, traditional, and not-so-traditional. The recipes are all created to please the taste buds and give readers a look into the true Southern table.

Readers who wish to experience this original work can purchase “Louisiana: Recipes of a People” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.

NEW YORK – August 16, 2022 – (Newswire.com)

Zulu shares, “Parts 1-3 illustrate my childhood adventures, habits, pastimes, family structure, hilarious moments, relatives’ antics, and stable home environment within western Pennsylvania! I also outline my diverse college experience at Penn State University. For you, younger folks, that might be compelling since you can see/read how I accomplished my goals that might mirror your own. On the other hand, you might want to follow my advice on what NOT to do if you walk in my shoes!

“Parts 4-7, in my second compilation, reflect my career progress, advancement, promotions, and all my ventures across the USA, from Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, to Georgia, Florida, then retreating back up North again before bravely migrating down South again in northern Virginia, then Texas! Millennials and middle-aged adults may find these texts more appealing. Having said that, if you are spiritual or follow God, then part 7 is absolutely critical for your soul’s progress! It describes my three-year ministry (similar to Jesus) as well as my own insights, wisdom, facts, fictions, illusions, and horrors gleamed from my forty years of experience as well as my conversations with GOD!”

Published by Fulton Books, Link Zulu’s book is an endearing journey that surely resonates with the younger audience. He divided his life story into seven accounts so readers can freely select the volume that caters to their current needs.
