RealNetworks® Begins Global Rollout of Unifi™, its Award-Winning Personal Media Cloud Service
Vodafone Germany offers Unifi to its customers starting today
Seattle, WA—June 29, 2011—RealNetworks, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNWK) today announced that it has begun the worldwide rollout of Unifi, its cross-platform media cloud service, starting in Germany. Vodafone Germany subscribers can now sign up for the service, making them the first customers to use Unifi to organize, access and enjoy their media across their different devices. Unifi will next be offered to North American customers, starting this fall.
Unifi is a personal media cloud service from RealNetworks that helps users catalog, access and enjoy their music, photos and videos, no matter what device, platform, music store or service they use. Unifi won the Best of CES award for the best software, services and application product at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year.
With Unifi, users can:
- Get a single, unified catalog of their digital media – all in one place – no matter where their photos, music or videos reside
- Securely store the media that is most important to them in the cloud
- Take a photo on their iPhone or Android phone and automatically save it to the cloud
- Share any photo in their library on Facebook
- Play their iTunes music collection on their Android phone
Keeping track of the thousands of photos, music tracks and videos stored on multiple devices and online services has become a nightmare for many consumers. According to a January 2011 independent Forrester Research, Inc. report, "Welcome To The Multidevice, Multiconnection World," over 60 million people in the United States already own more than four types of connected devices.
"Customers want to be able to easily find and enjoy the media they own, no matter where it resides," said Mike Lunsford, Interim CEO of RealNetworks. "With Unifi, they have the freedom to choose the phones, computers, tablets, services and platforms that best meet their changing needs – and still have access to all of the media they love."
North American customers can sign up to be notified when Unifi is available for them at www.realunifi.com.
RealNetworks creates innovative applications and services that make it easy for people to connect with and enjoy digital media. RealNetworks invented the streaming media category and continues to connect consumers with their digital media both directly and through partners, aiming to support every network, device, media type and social network.
