FXI and Polkast™ to Bring Content from Any Device to Any Screen
TRONDHEIM, Norway & BARCELONA, Spain --(Business Wire)--
Technologies™, innovator of the world's first any screen computer,
a personal cloud service that securely connects a user's computers and
mobile devices directly, today announced a technology partnership that
will allow people to access all their personal content from any device
on any screen.
"Cotton Candy has extended your favorite OS to any screen. Polkast
allows all your content to go anywhere with you," said Borgar Ljosland,
founder and CEO of FXI. "The marriage of the two technologies truly
re-defines the meaning of seamless mobility."
This week at the Mobile World Congress (News - Alert), Polkast and FXI jointly
demonstrated the product's ability to pick and choose photos, videos and
other content remotely from a multitude of remote devices on an HDTV
using Cotton Candy as the connected computing platform and a smartphone
as the input device. For instance, when visiting family and friends,
consumers can plug the USB-stick sized Cotton Candy into their TV and
instantly access their complete suite of cloud and hardware devices,
easily sharing their complete library of music, photos and videos.
"Get whtever content you want, wherever there is a screen," said Hong
Bui, CEO and founder of Polkast. "FXI and Polkast will together make the
computing experience truly personal, portable and accessible. The holy
grail of mobility."
Demonstrated first in November 2011, Cotton Candy is a complete computer
platform that will allow users a single, secure point of access to all
personal cloud services and apps through their favorite operating
system, while delivering a consistent experience on any screen through
its USB and HDMI connections. The device can serve as a portable, secure
thin client on PCs, Macs and notebooks as well as a set top box, gaming
system, cloud computer and more.
Polkast provides users with the easiest, most cost effective solution
for digital content access and management across a spectrum of mobile,
computing and storage devices. Because it uses the network and storage a
consumer already owns (the personal cloud), there is no need to sync and
access content from a single cloud source.
Cotton Candy development units are available now for pre-order at www.cstick.com.
Further details about the technology partnership and consumer
availability will be released later this year.
Based in Capo Beach, California, Polkast is a privately-held software
company founded in 2010 that has since gained traction with some of the
world's leading device manufacturers. Polkast software lets you
seamlessly connect the dots in your digital life, quickly, securely and
without limits. For more information about Polkast, please visit www.polkast.com.
