In order to truly shape industries, companies must be at the leading edge. We accomplished this with GameTree TV, our games and interactive entertainment brand for Smart TV and connected TV. GameTree TV was the first games-focused platform built specifically for the quickly growing Smart TV market, delivering the most recognizable gaming brands in the world, as well as providing innovative input solutions such as multi-screen technology.
GameTree TV is the culmination of years of industry experience and expertise, built through the successes of previous consumer offerings in the digital space. We first addressed the broad consumer market with GameTree Mac, our digital distribution portal for Mac games. With this initial foray into digital sales, GameTree Mac also gained us valuable expertise in digital distribution of content. Building upon the continued consumer success of GameTree Mac, our GameTree TV has already taken a leadership position in its industry.
TransGaming is a company founded upon technology expertise. Beginning in the early 2000's, company founder Gavriel State saw the power of gaming as a way to simultaneously bring people together, while showcasing the potential of emerging platforms to fuel growth. Cedega was born to bring the largely PC-centric gaming industry to Linux, highlighting the abilities of the platform. Following the incredible success of Cedega, we then turned to the growing Mac platform, seeing the potential growth years before Apple became the powerhouse it is today.
With the introduction of our Cider Mac enablement engine, major publishers could now quickly and easily bring their titles to Mac. The result was incredibly strong relationships with major industry names such as EA, Disney, Activision, Ubisoft, Sony Online Entertainment, and CCP, just to name a few. The continued success of Cider opened doors to create additional profitable technologies such as SwiftShader, the world's fastest pure software 3D renderer. With such clients as Google and Adobe, SwiftShader represented yet another industry-leading technology created by TransGaming.
In order to deliver the truly remarkable experiences we envision, the company has amassed an incredibly talented and experienced group of people. We have built the expertise needed to help define industries, rather than simply compete in them. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, with offices in four other cities worldwide, TransGaming employs almost 100 of the best and brightest from across the industry.
Truly remarkable and socially engaging experiences are now possible.
