Syabas' popbox and Mediafly Partner With RE/MAX to Deliver RE/MAX University Training to Its Agents and Brokers Outside the United States

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2011) - Syabas, a leading global distributor of digital entertainment solutions, and RE/MAX, LLC have partnered with Mediafly to make award-winning RE/MAX University content available on TVs for RE/MAX agents worldwide. This effort is made possible through the Syabas popbox digital network media player and the RE/MAX University platform, powered by Mediafly. As a result of this partnership, on-demand RE/MAX University content will now be available on TVs throughout the world.

To make RE/MAX University's rich media universally available, Mediafly provides a solution that allows RE/MAX agents and employees to watch when and where they want on their computers, on an expanding list of mobile devices such as iPhone, iPad, Android phones, BlackBerry, and now on their TVs, at home and in real estate offices. Mediafly also enables RE/MAX to broadcast live programming directly from its corporate headquarters in Denver, Colorado to virtually any agent in the world via the RE/MAX University Platform, powered by Mediafly.

"At Syabas, it is our aim to offer consumers an incredibly simple way to view your stored movies, images, and music, while having access to a whole host of compelling content apps," said Armando Lopez, VP of Strategic Product Marketing at Syabas. "RE/MAX University provides a wealth of information and training in a way that can be personalized to each individual region, office, and agent throughout the world. We are proud that our platform was chosen to be a partner."

With the dramatic shifts in Real Estate markets throughout the world, RE/MAX Associates have accepted the challenge of adapting to their current markets and have established a benchmark in helping buyers and sellers navigate the issues surrounding today's complicated real estate transactions. Through the Syabas popbox, agents in countries across the world can now access the RE/MAX University training they desire directly on their TVs.

"This major milestone for RE/MAX University is not only a reflection of the great training we offer, but it's a sign that RE/MAX agents know how to adapt to the changing markets," said Tom Kramig, VP of Multi-Media and Education. "They are earning certifications and designations in everything from short sales and foreclosures to green issues and best practices."
