Opanga Networks Addresses Challenges of Delivering High-Quality Multi-Screen Content at Digital Hollywood 2010

CEO Dave Gibbons to Share Expertise on Pre-Positioning Content to Provide Superior, More Consistent Experience for End Consumer

SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -

WHO: 
Opanga Networks is the leading innovator of pragmatic video optimization solutions that convert surplus network capacity in real time to efficiently pre-position high-quality content to any device. Leveraging surplus capacity enables NetRover, the company's suite of solutions, to pre-position content directly into the end user device, offering the customer a completely seamless experience. Because the content is locally rendered, playback starts instantly, never freezes and does not depend on a live broadband connection.

WHAT: 
The entertainment industry is experiencing a fundamental shift in how people consume media with consumers clearly voicing their preference for a consistent and persistent experience on alternative devices. Never before has it been more important for content owners to deliver a consistent experience that consumers are willing to pay for and that protects their brand with high-quality video playback.

Dave Gibbons, CEO and co-founder of Opanga Networks, will be discussing this trend on a panel on Content Delivery -- Rich Media -- The Three Screen Challenge: PC, TV and Mobile on Thursday, October 21st at 9:30 a.m. During the panel, Gibbons will also discuss the limitations of streaming technology along with how content owners can deliver a better video experience to the consumer and generate new revenue streams on mobile devices.
