|NYSDA Sponsors & Partners|
NYSDA appreciates the monetary and in-kind donations it receives. Donors can be seen in current and past Annual Reports. Also noted there are grant awards from foundations. Donations and grants help NYSDA continue its commitment to improving the scope and quality of public defense representation in New York State.
dtSearch Corp. - develops, manufactures, and sells the award-winning dtSearch® line of products. Known for its "industrial-strength" (PC Magazine) ability to instantly search gigabytes of text, the dtSearch product line operates in traditional desktop and network settings, as well as in Web-based environments. dtSearch® has proven to be a very user-friendly, fast, and technically advanced in-house text retrieval program for NYSDA's over 300,000 legal, research, and archival documents including Microsoft Word, Corel WordPerfect, Microsoft Excel, Adobe PDF, ZIP, HTML, and text files. In addition to the over two dozen full-text search options, dtSearch also has the ability, using its "web indexing spider," to index the pages of other organization's web sites to make their content instantly searchable from a user's local hard drive.
Ever increasing demand for gains in productivity coupled with decreasing resources make tools that extend the reach of network administrators invaluable by saving both time and expense. One such tool is PA Server Monitor. This system “utility” silently monitors a myriad of defined Windows Server events for critical conditions and instantly sends alerts by email and/or text message to one or more persons when a monitored event is triggered by the system. It has provided significant assistance to NYSDA in the monitoring and management our several servers.
Power Admin LLC who builds and distributes PA Server Monitor describes it this way: "PA Server Monitor is a powerful, yet simple to use software solution to monitor your servers and network hardware. PA Server Monitor will closely monitor your systems and notify you of failures or performance problems and run actions you define to minimize business impact." For a limited time, PA Server Monitor Lite, is being offered free of charge in exchange for a link to their website. Click here to read more about their offer.
NYSDA has, for some time, tried to produce as much in-house graphics, web design, and video as possible in order to save both money and time. To that end, Adobe’s donations (through TechSoup.org) have been absolutely essential in providing us with the tools for efficient professional graphic design with Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Flash. And with their most current donation to us, Adobe Production Premium CS6, we can now quickly and efficiently edit, add effects, and output to virtually any format including DVD and Blu-Ray, our ongoing educational series of videos including our N.Y.U., R.I.T., and R.P.I. “trainers,” as well as the three days of speakers’ presentations at our annual meetings using Premier Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, and the updates to the aforementioned graphics apps which are part of the new Creative Cloud (CC) suite of applications.
In addition to the Production Premium tools, Adobe has also donated to us Windows and Mac licenses for Acrobat Pro which we use almost daily for PDF production and distribution. Without Adobe’s kind donations, the level of professionalism we maintain in both the production and the distribution of our media would be virtually impossible, and work we do in-house would have to be outsourced, costing a considerable amount more in logistics, time, and money. We thank Adobe for their very generous donations.
