Opanga Teams Up With Seattle Seahawks to Improve Mobile Video for Fans

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2013) - Opanga Networks and the Seahawks announced today an integration of Opanga's NetRover® technology into the team's Android mobile app. Opanga is the leading innovator of mobile CDN software, which provides media companies with high definition mobile video playback. NetRover's mobile content distribution platform enables media-rich applications to deliver massive amounts of data to mobile devices, without degrading network performance or the viewing experience.

"As consumers watch more and more video on smartphones and tablets, networks are crumbling under the traffic load and the user experience gets really sketchy. Sports team's like the Seahawks are extremely interested in NetRover's innovative technology, because it protects the network performance and gives the fan perfect video quality on their mobile. Now fans can enjoy action video highlights in mobile high resolution, wherever they are and whenever they want it, without all the frustrating stalling and buffering," said Dave Gibbons, CEO of Opanga Networks. "Seahawks fans will be surprised by how good this mobile video experience is. It starts instantly, never freezes and allows them to connect easily with the team and players."

Leveraging surplus capacity enables NetRover applications to cache content directly into the end user device, delivering a completely seamless user experience. This network-friendly mobile distribution solution creates opportunities for both media companies and mobile operators to create new value-added services through a highly differentiated consumer experience.

"This is an exciting new technology and we couldn't be happier to provide our fans with this enhanced app that delivers a broadcast quality video experience on their mobile devices," said Seahawks VP of Technology Chip Suttles.
