Family Shield Launches Pornography Suppression Software Targeted Towards Christian Families
Nashua, New Hampshire (PRWEB) March 10, 2006 — According to Family Shield, a New Hampshire-based provider of internet pornography blocking products and services specifically for the Christian market, the threat of encountering pornographic images often stops Christian families from taking advantage of the Internet. To mitigate that risk, Family Shield has launched a pornography suppression service that utilizes advanced image analysis technology to stop pornography before it can be viewed on the family computer. According to Bran Phelps, company President, “Parents can set the level of image tolerance according to their beliefs. Family Shield then blurs any image that is deemed pornographic. We believe that parents have the right to know what their kids are viewing and the moral obligation to control it.”
Family Shield’s revolutionary pornography detection and suppression technology provides a simple program that loads when the home computer starts up. The Family Shield application watches the video graphics subsystem of the computer and analyzes all images before they can be displayed on the monitor.
Family Shield’s commitment to the battle against pornographic images realizes that the Christian market and the network of churches that form its backbone are crucial. Therefore, Family Shield uniquely sells its technology via fund-raising programs through these church and parent groups, and in return donates 10% of its gross revenues to the fund-raising church.
“Family Shield offers churches an ideal way to achieve two worthy goals; combating pornography while raising funds for church activities,” said Phelps. “We believe that the Christian market wants this kind of service, a service that gives back to the Christian community while helping Christian families to take full advantage of the internet for home schooling and communicating with other faith based families while protecting the family against pornographic images.”
