GameTree TV extends gameplay from the TV screen to handheld devices
LAS VEGAS – January 10, 2012 – TransGaming Inc. (TSX-V:TNG), the global leader in the multiplatform deployment of interactive entertainment, today announced at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) that it is enhancing the living room social experience further with the launch of multi-screen support within GameTree™ TV, the premier on-demand interactive entertainment platform for Smart TV.
GameTree TV’s multi-screen capabilities allow iOS and Android devices to be seamlessly integrated into the GameTree TV experience. Consumers can now enjoy a greater degree of immersive interactive gameplay, and enhanced social experiences through multi-player competition where their handheld devices and the television screen are leveraged to create new and unique forms of gameplay. Furthermore, multi-screen enables a greater degree of connectivity as players can compete against one-another when gathered in the same living room or competing against one another from different connected living rooms around the world.
"We have established GameTree TV as the premier on-demand interactive entertainment platform in the world and we continue to push the envelope to deliver the best experiences to consumers in the connected living room. With the number of handheld devices in the home today, multi-screen integration is a natural but far-reaching enhancement to GameTree TV that connects the mobile environment to the Smart TV environment," commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming Inc. "Soon GameTree TV consumers will battle head-to-head as they play a range of iconic games on their tablets and handheld devices while watching the action unfold on the big screen. The television in the living room has always been a social experience. We are now heightening that experience through the addition of multi-screen capabilities on GameTree TV to deliver the richest interactive entertainment experience possible."
