L-Tron & OSCR360 Return from NDAA Summer Summit – Focused on the “Digital Prosecutor” 

VICTOR, N.Y.Aug. 9, 2022PRLog — The L-Tron team recently returned from a successful trip to the National District Attorney Association’s (NDAA) Summer Summit in Denver, CO which took place July 18th & 19th 2022. Trevor DiMarco and Julianne Pangal represented L-Tron at the Summit, showcasing L-Tron’s OSCR360 technology. OSCSR360 software aids prosecutors before and during trials, with the ultimate goal of serving justice and obtaining convictions.

This year’s Summit, “The Evolution of the Digital Prosecutor,” focused on the use of technology in both the District Attorney’s Office and in the courtroom. One of the Summit sessions, titled “Using Technology to Increase Persuasion and Juror Understanding: The Visual Trial,” spoke volumes about the need for jurors to understand the facts of a case and to be engaged during the trial. Visual tools and new courtroom technology may be necessary tools for prosecutors to continue serving justice and closing cases with convictions.

By using OSCR360 for courtroom presentations and trial prep, Prosecutors are able to virtually bring the crime scene into the courtroom with a digital walkthrough of the case and any digital evidence. OSCR projects are fully admissible in court. OSCR serves as a digital “briefcase” in which investigators and prosecutors can organize each piece of digital evidence. Come trial, OSCR simplifies and improves the process of presenting in the courtroom. The system is also an effective tool in the plea deal process.

“The NDAA Summer Summit was a highlight for our team,” says Julianne Pangal, from L-Tron. “We enjoyed meeting prosecutors, district attorneys and investigators from across the country and appreciate the work they do on a daily basis. It was exciting to see how OSCR360 can help them accomplish their goals. We also love to learn from them and hear their feedback.”

Grayson’s Art Club to return for a third series

New themes, new celebrity guests, new works of art

“A heartening, lockdown-era tonic” ***** – The Guardian

“It was a reminder that art isn’t just about galleries and ostentation but that it can cut to the heart of human experience.” The Telegraph

Grayson Perry once again invites you to join his Art Club.

The critically acclaimed series, from BAFTA-winning production company Swan Films, has been recommissioned for a third series by Channel 4.

The third series will see contemporary award-winning artist, writer and broadcaster Grayson Perry return to screens from his studio, along with Philippa Perry, the best-selling author, psychotherapist and broadcaster.

Over the past two years Grayson’s Art Club captured the hearts of the nation, when Grayson and Philippa invited the great British public into their studio when the country needed it most.

Armed with a new set of themes, Grayson’s Art Club promises to represent the ever-changing mood of the nation, and once again we will see Grayson in his studio making his own art responding to what has got the nation talking. Grayson will speak with celebrity guests and high-profile artists who’ll share insights into their processes and will feature art made by the great British public. Restrictions provided, Grayson will finally be able to throw open his studio doors and welcome in his celebrity guests and their art.

The six-episode run will see Grayson incorporate weekly themes for members of the public to submit artwork to. Themes and submission information will be made available in early 2022.

On the return of the series, Grayson and Philippa Perry said: “We’re delighted that we’re opening up the doors to our Art Club again. This show was borne out of a time where we needed art to help us make sense of the changes in our lives and find meaning from what we were collectively going through. In series 3 we’re working on a new set of themes to inspire the nation to make more art to illuminate what we now face, whatever that is, and we’re both very much looking forward to seeing what the British public will create this time around”

Shaminder Nahal, Commissioning Editor said: “Grayson’s Art Club has brilliantly demonstrated how much art means to so many people, and its power to bring us together and help us in difficult times. We are so grateful for the thousands of incredible submissions we’ve received from talented artists across the UK. Here’s to another run and seeing how Grayson, Philippa and the team at Swan Films are able to develop the series and uncover a whole new set of powerful real-life stories.”

Grayson’s Art Club is produced for Channel 4 by Swan Films. It is executive produced by Neil Crombie and Joe Evans and commissioned for Channel 4 by Commissioning Editor Shaminder Nahal.

Notes to Editors

The first two series of Grayson’s Art Club are now available to view on All 4. Themes and submission information will be made available in early 2022.

The Return of China’s Overseas-listed NEV Companies Accelerates with Li Auto’s Dual Primary Listing in Hong Kong

Along with changes in the domestic and foreign regulatory environments and the policy reform of the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX), the Hong Kong market becomes increasingly attractive to some China-based US-listed companies. The return of China-based overseas-listed companies has become a trend now. Li Auto Inc (2015.HK) is among the three major China-based overseas-listed NEV companies listing on HKEX today through a dual primary listing, after Xpeng Motors Inc (9868.HK) was listed in Hong Kong on July 7. The IPO is jointly sponsored by Goldman Sachs and China International Capital Corporation (CICC), with UBS as the financial advisor.

Advanced Smart Automobile Solutions Drive Rapid Sales Growth

Li Auto Inc, incorporated in 2015, is a Chinese NEV (new energy passenger vehicle) automaker, specializing in designing, developing, manufacturing, and sales of premium smart electric vehicles. On July 30, 2020, Li Auto Inc was listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol LI.

Li ONE, as Li Auto’s first extended-range electric passenger vehicle (EREV), is a six-seat large premium electric SUV (sport utility vehicle) equipped with the Company’s independently developed range extension system and advanced smart vehicle solutions. An EREV is purely electric-driven by its electric motor, but its energy source and power come from both its battery pack and range extension system. With its integrated powertrain system, Li ONE delivers a total NEDC range of 1,080 kilometers. Meanwhile, this model’s energy can be replenished by slow charging, fast charging, and refueling. Li ONE can operate even when users have no access to charging infrastructure, thereby completely eliminating range anxiety.

Advanced technology not only improves product quality, but also significantly promotes the Company’s sales. Data after the hearing showed that the total number of vehicles that the Company delivered in the first quarter of 2021 was 12,579, representing an increase of 334.4% YoY. The delivery volume in the first half of this year already represented around 92% of that in the previous year. As of July 31, 2021, total deliveries in 2021 reached 38,743, bringing cumulative deliveries of Li ONE to 72,340 since its market debut. In 2020, Li ONE was recognized as the best-selling new energy SUV model in China with a 9.7% market share according to the CIC Report.

Multi-faceted Comprehensive Layout of Dual Listing to Enhance Competitiveness

Li Auto is accelerating to fully develop its R&D, capacity, and channels, while maintaining the current business. Currently, the Company is developing the X platform, which succeeds the existing EREV platform for Li ONE and is equipped with the next-generation EREV powertrain system. The Company plans to launch the first product on the X platform, a full-size premium extended-range electric SUV – in 2022, and two additional SUVs on the platform in 2023.

In terms of BEV models, Li Auto is investing significantly in the HPC (High-power Charging) BEV technologies, and developing two platforms, Whale and Shark, for its HPC BEVs. Starting from 2023, the Company plans to launch at least two new HPC BEV models every year.

In regard to autonomous driving, Li Auto is strengthening R&D and investing significantly in its proprietary autonomous driving technologies. It is expected that all the new models of the Company will be equipped with necessary hardware compatible with in-house developed, future Level 4 autonomous driving as a standard configuration from 2022. Furthermore, the Company will continue to optimize its autonomous driving solutions leveraging its full-stack proprietary software development capabilities.

China has become the world’s largest NEV market. In recent years, the growth of NEV sales volume has surpassed that of the ICE vehicles in China. According to the CIC Report, the NEV sales volume in China increased from 300,000 in 2016 to 1.2 million in 2020, representing a CAGR of 41.7%. In 2020, the NEV sales volume only accounted for 5.8% of the total passenger vehicle sales volume, implying massive future growth potential.

It is expected that the NEV sales volume in China will continue to rise at the CAGR of 35.8% from 2020 to 2025, driven by favorable policies, constantly developing auto technology, a rapid decrease in battery costs, and higher popularity of NEVs among consumers (due to a deeper understanding of intelligent technology and the Internet and demand growth), the CIC Report showed.

Li Auto Inc, as one of the top three Chinese new auto brands, choosing dual primary listing in Hong Kong, will expand the financing channel and acquire sustainable financial support. The primary listing of Li Auto offers a lot of capital reserves to future technology development and product R&D in order to further reinforce its competitiveness and consolidate and raise its market share.
