SAN DIEGO, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --PacketVideo today announced a
partnership with Aigo, one of China's largest and most well-known
manufacturers of consumer electronic accessories. The two companies will
partner to provide dongle- based solutions to operators and content providers
outside of China.
The two companies will collaborate to provide Android and Linux powered
Dongles for operators and content owners wishing to leverage this unique form

form factor has the potential to create new business models for content
delivery," said Jim Brailean, CEO of PacketVideo.
"We believe that operators and content providers are looking for new models to
deliver content and with the growth of smartphones and tablets, HDMI dongles
are a user-friendly and cost effective way to deliver a new content experience
to end-users. We also believe that PacketVideo's history of working with
service providers to develop and deploy solutions in the US and Europe gives
us the best chance of success in this space," said Richard Huang, General
Manager of Aigo Digital company Ltd.
