ECTACO Honored with the Prestigious CES Innovation Award for the jetBook Color Educational eBook System

Award

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Long Island City, New York - November 8, 2011 - Ectaco, Inc., the world leader in portable language learning and translation technology have been decorated with the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show Innovation Award for their jetBook Color Educational eBook System. This is the 3rd CES Award received by the company, but by far the most exciting.

The 9.7'' screen jetBook Color is the world's first to utilize eye-friendly Triton E Ink technology in an eBook Reader oriented solely towards education. Every unit has an individual connection to a Teacher's Console where teachers can restrict the download of any programs or content that is not related to the class, send students grades, exams, homework, and messages with the students being able to submit all those options as well. The main screen serves as an ID card for the student displaying a schedule of classes (updated daily via Wi-Fi or 3G), list of student's and teacher's notes, homework and classwork, and a designated channel for instant communication with any teacher. Along with the most sophisticated and functional eBook Reader software, the jetBook Color features the content of a 50-state reading list, teacher and school administrator resources, and a fully interactive SAT course that will train, test, and raise students' SAT scores. A Speed Reading course that will teach students to read and comprehend text faster, Translating Dictionaries narrated by professional linguists, course of English and foreign language grammar, speech recognition and speech analysis Language Teacher and U-Learn courses that teach any of the 52 available languages and provide great support to ESL students. Pictured dictionaries for 36 languages, cross translator for 180 languages, Vocabulary Builder, Linguistic Crosswords, reference materials in Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography and Earth Science, Interactive Periodic Table of Elements, graphing and scientific calculators and more.

"This is the most advanced and user friendly device we've ever created for educational institutions" asserts David Lubinitsky, CEO of Ectaco Inc., "Our direct experience with so many schools gave us the edge to interact on a personal basis with teachers to discuss what they want to see in a device like this for the classroom. That was the birth of the jetBook Color."

The jetBook Color will be presented in Las Vegas at the 2012 CES Show (Booth #36180) with an award recognition presentation on January 10th at 12:15 p.m. in the Venetian Ballroom A-D. Ectaco currently works with educational institutions worldwide and is looking forward to the jetBook Color becoming a standard in schools across the globe.

1999 was the breakthrough year for pocket translators. This is when it became clear for the first time that paper-based dictionaries and audio/visual courses for language study were truly a thing of the past. In their place a completely new product appeared offering incredible opportunities for language study. By 2006, the P800 series of products had appeared followed in 2007 by the remarkable iTRAVL series, which was in turn followed in 2008 by the advanced P850 series that has emerged as the most sophisticated tool for language study in the 21st century.

The predecessor of all theses remarkable devices was the ER586HT.
