MediaBeacon & Polar Mobile Bring Video to Your Phone

MediaBeacon Inc. (www.mediabeacon.com), a leading provider of digital asset management and rich media solutions, today announced a partnership with Polar Mobile (www.polarmobile.com). Polar Mobile's platform gives businesses the ability to extend their content across all major smartphone devices through custom-branded native mobile Apps.

With this partnership, MediaBeacon's digital asset management platform is now integrated with Polar Mobile's SMARTTM Platform to better manage, search and re-purpose all types of rich media for broadcast to the major smartphone platforms. The partnership will also allow Polar Mobile to leverage MediaBeacon in their hosted platform to better enable their clients to manage the media they push out to smartphone devices.

"We found that the two technologies would bring immediate value to our clients by automating and streamlining the process of taking media, especially video, to mobile Apps," said Kunal Gupta, Chief Executive Officer, Polar Mobile. "With the explosive growth in smartphones as the delivery platform for all types of media, this relationship makes it easy for Publishers to create, manage and stream video to any device."

"It is clear that Polar Mobile's ability to create Apps and push content to mobile devices is market leading and made for a natural partnership," said Jason Bright, Founder and CTO, MediaBeacon. "The market now has an answer that makes it possible to create, manage and publish content to all these new wireless web channels."

There is a webcast scheduled for October 5th at 1:00pm CST titled "Bringing streaming media to the phone with MediaBeacon and Polar Mobile" to review how these combined technologies can allow any organization to push video and other media to smartphone devices with ease. Please pre-register at:
