DemiVision Technologies Extend JAMDAT Platform To Include
Near Real-Time Multiplayer Gaming on Next-Generation Wireless Phones
LOS ANGELES, CA - (October 3, 2002) –JAMDAT Mobile Inc., a leading publisher of entertainment applications and provider of enabling technologies for wireless, announced today that it has acquired the wireless gaming technology of DemiVision LLC, a wireless technology company located in Huntington Beach, CA. As a result of the acquisition, JAMDAT gains access to DemiVision’s unique wireless multiplayer gaming platform for developing and hosting interactive, client-server based wireless games.
“This important announcement confirms JAMDAT’s commitment to multiplayer, connected gaming for mobile devices,” said Mitch Lasky, CEO of JAMDAT Mobile. “In 2000, JAMDAT launched the Gladiator franchise, the most successful turn-based multiplayer game for WAP. Now, we look forward to adding the DemiVision technology to our existing multiplayer and community platform to bring even more exciting multiplayer applications to mobile game consumers. Because wireless phones are inherently communication devices, they allow us to create mobile, multiplayer gaming experiences that cannot be replicated on a traditional video game console or the PC.”
“Since its inception, DemiVision has been exclusively focused on making truly interactive multiplayer wireless gaming a reality,” stated Barry Sohl, President and Founder of DemiVision, LLC. “JAMDAT has the proven success record, robust multiplayer development platform and unequaled wireless entertainment expertise that will bring DemiVision’s technologies to life. We are very excited that our technology has become a permanent part of their global mobile entertainment offering.”
Lasky added, “JAMDAT’s existing multiplayer platform provides a robust environment for development of multiplayer wireless applications. When DemiVision’s low-latency TDP/UDP technology is combined with our existing platform, we can take the multiplayer experience to the next level and offer near real-time wireless gaming,
