Atlanta, Georgia – (The Hosting News) – March 7, 2008 – The uVuMobile hosting platform for distribution of high quality, digital media content, will be provided through a mobile video hosting agreement, between uVuMobile, Inc., and entertainment content provider, GlobalTakeoff (”GTO”).
Beginning this month, GTO’s content will be available and is expected to produce an immediate revenue stream to GTO and uVuMobile, to a community of over 2.5 million households in the U.S. via the Company’s mobile unicast delivery networks.
GTO’s overall ecosystem of partnerships along with uVuMobile will enable consumers easy access to Indian TV shows, movies, videos, sports, news, comedy, drama, and cultural programming on their mobile. Programming is also available in multiple formats including live and on-demand. In addition, GTO will support its turnkey ethnic content solution with a full-scale marketing campaign.

Uday Reddy, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of GTO noted, ”GlobalTakeoff strongly believes in partnerships to build an ecosystem for delivering next generation converged services. In line with this vision, we have selected uVuMobile as one of our partners due to their core competency in delivering end-to-end video content to mobile devices. This agreement gives us a go-to market strategy and provides us the ability to focus on acquiring subscribers and content.”
A book by Dr. A V Saoji, G D Munshi and Dr. Sanjay V. Seshpande titled, ”How to See, Know and Understand America,” shows that Indians comprise 16.4% of the Asian-American community in the U.S. and are the third largest in the Asian-American population. The Indian American Center for Political Awareness contends that Asian immigrants will continue to be the largest cohort to enter the U.S. over the next five decades. According to the U.S. census, the overall growth rate from 1990 to 2000 was 105.87% compared to the average growth rate for the whole of the U.S.A. was only 7.6% for the same period.
Swati A. Dandekar, Iowa state representative, remarked ”Indian Americans are economically the most successful group in the U.S. Research by the Pew Hispanic Center reveals that Foreign-born persons coming from South and Southeast Asia far outstripped those from other sources in their level of education, having far higher numbers with college and advanced degrees.”
uVuMobile’s mobile video hosting service allows entertainment and media companies to distribute their content to consumers across multiple devices by providing content management, encoding, hosting, streaming and reporting services for live or video-on-demand programming.
Bill Loughman, CEO of uVuMobile remarked, ”We are particularly excited about this agreement in that it ‘showcases’ a broad dimension of uVuMobile’s content delivery capabilities covering both video and audio. Our ability to deliver content in multiple formats provides GTO a comprehensive business solution and includes live TV programming originating directly from India. This agreement reaffirms the Company’s continued commitment and focus on its core video technology competencies.”
