It is a great honor in our industry to be awarded the prestigious ISPO BRANDNEW Award in front of some of the biggest names in action sports and our entire SOLOSHOT team is incredibly stoked, said SOLOSHOT Co-Founder Chris Boyle. SOLOSHOT was conceived on a surf trip to the British Virgin Islands and our team is built of friends made while surfing and kiting the beaches of Cabarete in the Dominican Republic. The recognition from our industry peers really means a lot to us, concluded Boyle.

Before we created SOLOSHOT, there was no way to automatically film yourself from a distance without a cameraman, SOLOSHOT Co-Founder Scott Taylor added. Were excited that the international reaction to the SOLOSHOT revolution has been outstandingly positive and ISPO Munich has been an amazing launching pad to roll out distribution to our retail partners worldwide.

SOLOSHOT delivers high quality video footage without requiring someone to hold a camera for hours. Launched in 2012, the automatic filming system quickly became popular with those who enjoy surfing, kite-boarding, wake-boarding and other water sports. SOLOSHOT soon gained in popularity with all those who enjoy action sports, snow sports, field sports and even parents who are now able to effortlessly film youth sporting events. SOLOSHOT automatically keeps a camera rotated towards an athlete and is compatible with almost any camera, including iPhone and smartphone cameras with a third party tripod adaptor. SOLOSHOT automatically tracks and films moving subjects at speeds as fast as 140 mph, from distances up to 2000 feet, and has a maximum rotating speed of 40 degrees per second. The high tech tripod base communicates with a small waterproof and shock-proof transmitter that is attached to a comfortable, one-size-fits-all armband any athlete can wear. After an easy pairing sequence, the base automatically rotates as needed to continually keep the camera pointed at the athlete wearing the armband.

SOLOSHOT is made in the USA in San Antonio, Texas and the MSRP is $ 479. Visit for more information.

Web Design Pittsburgh "Best of the Best" Awarded to Morgan IDS for Excellence by Follow Media Consulting, Inc.

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 27, 2013

Morgan IDS was awarded the “Best of the Best” designation for excellence in Web Design Pittsburgh by Follow Media Consulting, Inc. They can be reached at 877-498-5999.

To quote, web design is a broad term covering many different skills and disciplines that are used in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include; web graphic design, interface design, authoring; including standardized code and proprietary software, user experience design and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up, but this is a grey area as this is also covered by web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

Morgan IDS excels in all areas of Web Design in Pittsburgh PA, including:

Page layout

Web pages should be well laid out to improve navigation for the user. Also for navigation purposes, the sites page layout should also remain consistent on different pages. When constructing sites, it’s important to consider page width as this is vital for aligning objects and in layout design. The most popular websites generally have a width close to 1024 pixels. Most pages are also centre aligned, to make objects look more aesthetically pleasing on larger screens

Quality of code

When creating a site it is good practice to conform to standards. This is usually done via a description specifying what the element is doing. Not conforming to standards may not make a website unusable or error prone, standards can relate to the correct layout of pages for readability as well making sure coded elements are closed appropriately. This includes errors in code, better layout for code as well as making sure your IDs and classes are identified properly. Poorly-coded pages are sometimes colloquially called tag soup. Validating via W3C can only be done when a correct DOCTYPE declaration is made, which is used to highlight errors in code. The system identifies the errors and areas that do not conform to web design standards. This information can then be corrected by the user.

Visual design

Good visual design on a website identifies and works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture thus the designer should understand the trends of its audience. Designers should also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning a business website should not be designed the same as a social media site for example. Designers should also understand the owner or business the site is representing, to make sure they are portrayed favourably. The aesthetics or overall design of a site should not clash with the content, making it easier for the user to navigate and can find the desired information or products etc.

User experience design

For a user to understand a website they must be able to understand how the website works. This affects their experience. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labelling on a website. The user must understand how they can interact on a site. In relation to continued use, a user must perceive the usefulness of that website if they are to continue using it. With users who are skilled and well versed with website use, this influence relates directly to how they perceive websites, which encourages further use. Therefore users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of websites. This in turn should focus, on design for a more universal use and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill.
