Nocom becomes exclusive distributor for Oplayo in Sweden and Norway

Nocom becomes exclusive distributor for Oplayo in Sweden and Norway Nocom has signed a contract with the Finnish software company Oplayo for exclusive distribution rights in the Swedish and Norwegian markets. Oplayo's product portfolio includes market-leading software for streaming media, i.e. instant play of, for example, audio, video and presentations. Oplayo's products - characterized by their high degree of user friendliness - enable instantaneous transmissions both to cell phones and personal computers via the Internet or e-mail. The advantages of Oplayo are many. In contrast to software from leading competitors, no downloads or installations are required on receiving devices. A media player is included in the transmitted file, which enables video, for example, to be played instantly on computers or cell phones. Oplayo already works on such mass-market cell phones as the Nokia 7650, 7210, 3650 and 3510i, and soon on the Ericsson P800 as well. With the advanced MVQ (Motion Vector Quantization) technology, media files are highly compressed. This exceptional degree of compression enables, among other things, trouble-free file transmission via GPRS. No investments in hardware are required in that publication is instantaneous on any standard web-server; and no programming skills are required on the part of the user. Another advantage is that Oplayo can utilize existing ports in company firewalls, thus retaining security. The application areas include the distribution of internal information, so that company management can easily and instantly reach all employees at geographically dispersed locations with multimedia presentations. Moreover, the technology is well-suited for external company presentations, e-learning (instructions and training), marketing and financial reporting, as well as for operations at companies that distribute news, traffic and weather information, and film previews. "Nocom's experience and expertise within both the Internet and wireless fields were important factors in our selection of a collaborative partner," says Timo Kiippa, Sales Director VAR & Reseller, Oplayo. "Nocom is one of the most well-reputed and capable IT companies in the Scandinavian marketplace, and we look forward to long-term and productive collaboration." Among Oplayo's customers in the international market are Nokia, Eurotel Praha, the pharmaceutical company Pfizer, the accounting group KPMG, CNN, NBC Sports, General Motors and Universal Pictures.
