PLAINVIEW, NY–(Marketwired – January 07, 2016) – NeuLion, Inc. (TSX: NLN), a leading technology product and service provider specializing in the broadcasting, distribution and monetization of live and on-demand digital video content to Internet-enabled devices, today announced at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES), the early availability of its new 4K Mobile App, code named Project 88. The brand new app enables consumers to seamlessly play out video content, in up to Ultra HD 4K, captured from their cameras and smartphones, to every connected device. The Project 88 Mobile App is now ready for early testing by select consumers and will become generally available during the first quarter of 2016.
As consumers use more 4K enabled smartphones and cameras from brands including Apple, GoPro, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic and others, playing video captured on these devices on 4K TVs presents a challenge. With this new product, NeuLion has made it easier than ever before to bring 4K content to any device. The Project 88 Mobile App, running on either iOS or Android, will allow consumers to seamlessly cast video in up to Ultra HD 4K to every connected device in their home network for multi-screen playback. The app will be offered to consumers either free through an Ad-supported version or through an in-app upgrade that does not include advertising.
The Project 88 Mobile App will enhance the digital video viewing experience with a number of great features, including:
- Play out of all video formats on any CE connected device throughout the home network using iOS or Android Smartphones;
- Ultra HD 4K captured content seamlessly played out on 4K internet connected devices like Roku and game consoles as well as through Ultra HD 4K enabled Smart TVs from LG, Sony, Samsung and others;
- Support of all video formats up to Ultra HD 4K 60fps for multi-screen play out of video stored on either home media servers or from cloud based services like Dropbox, Google and others;
- Support for the play out of DivX formatted video to DivX certified CE devices;
Multi-tasking of video play out allowing video to be played on any connected TV device or Smart TV while simultaneously previewing the next video up for viewing on your smartphone.
“4K enabled televisions are expected to reach over 50 million units sold during 2016 and 4K content libraries produced by consumers will reach record levels,” said NeuLion CEO Dr. Kanaan Jemili. “NeuLion enables both of these trends by connecting the entire ecosystem of video delivery for both user generated content, professionally produced content, and device play out and streaming on CE devices.”
Project 88 Mobile App, the NeuLion® Digital Platform and NeuLion’s DivX Certification program are all powered by NeuLion, creating state-of-the-art viewing experiences for consumers and content rights holders.
