OnLive, Inc. Key Developments

Wikipad, Inc. and OnLive Join Forces to Bring Big Games to Mobile Devices

Wikipad, Inc. and OnLive, have announced a partnership to bring full versions of AAA high-end PC games to Wikipad tablet and, in the near future, Wikipad's Gamevice powered tablets. The OnLive Android app (available for download from the Google Play store) has been optimized for gameplay on Wikipad's Android gaming tablet, the Wikipad 7. Wikipad users can now experience AAA high-end PC gaming on the go via OnLive's recently launched CloudLift(R) -- a new subscription service in the US, Canada and UK that allowes fans to instantly access their digital games library anywhere on connected mobile devices, PC, Mac and TV. The power of OnLive's muscle-bound cloud servers handle all of the heavy lifting required to stream AAA games to connected mobile devices such as tablets without users having to worry about hardware requirements. CloudLift will work on many connected devices providing gamers with access to their OnLive library of games, but Wikipad 7'is the first gaming tablet with a gamepad controller adopting this service. In addition to Wikipad 7, the partnership will eventually extend to the future release of Wikipad's upcoming Gamevice which provides tablets with the necessary detachable gamepad with dual analog sticks, both L1/R1 and L2/R2 buttons, an analog D-pad and four analog action buttons. Using proprietary technology, Gamevice allows users to connect their mobile devices in the Gamevice arm, and with the simplest of adjustments, use the flex bridge to lock it in place. Armed with Gamevice, tablet gamers can connect to their OnLive library via CloudLift and instantly stream their favorite PC games anywhere, anytime and enjoy the experience as if they were at home in front of gaming rig.

OnLive, Inc. Announces CloudLift Enterprise to Delivers Secure Cross-Platform Deployment

OnLive announced CloudLift Enterprise, a new cloud-based Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The OnLive CloudLift Enterprise service offers businesses the ability to stream latency-sensitive Graphics Intensive Applications (GIAs), such as high-definition interactive demos, simulations and 3D programs, from the cloud to virtually any device instantly, with unparalleled control, security and support. OnLive CloudLift Enterprise is particularly suited for delivering latency-sensitive GIAs over nearly any network to a wide array of thin clients including tablets, mobile devices and Mac and PC laptops. Commonly used mobile devices and laptops have limited CPU/GPU processing and memory available, and are not able to run demanding applications. As a result, resource-intensive apps can only be accessed from expensive, high-powered PCs. Defense and Aerospace, Engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE), Automotive and Healthcare are all sectors that rely on GIAs. They typically struggle with hardware constraints, porting costs and interoperability issues of the ever-growing collection of portable and mobile client devices when delivering enterprise-level applications to employees in the field, or anywhere away from their high-end computers. OnLive CloudLift Enterprise solves these problems for any sector by securely streaming applications from either a private on-premises data center, or OnLives fully managed, hosted cloud, to the full range of users devices. The applications and data reside in the secure data center and only pixels are streamed to end users devices, protecting applications and data from piracy and malicious use. OnLives platform constantly monitors changing network conditions, including throughput, latency and packet loss, and automatically adapts the pixel stream to provide a consistent and stable video and audio stream to end users, instantly. The result is a highly responsive, visually crisp experience that feels local, delivered on an array of end-point devices, for a wide variety of applications and variable network conditions. Efficiencies across the solution allow for network bandwidths as low as 2Mbps to still deliver the required user experience. Other applications include training simulations, drone piloting software, medical imaging software, design and architecture programs, and latency-sensitive video games, which have served as a proving ground for OnLives patented technology. OnLive CloudLift Enterprise also features a simplified on-boarding process that supports off-the-shelf SKUs of the most sophisticated software packages.

The OnLive Android app is fully customized for use with M.O.J.O. and the Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R(TM) Mobile Gamepad, both key products in the Mad Catz GameSmart(TM) range of mobile hardware.
