™, innovator of the world’s first any screen computer, and Polkast
, a personal cloud service that securely connects a user’s computers and mobile devices directly, today announced a technology partnership that will allow people to access all their personal content from any device on any screen.
“Cotton Candy has extended your favorite OS to any screen. Polkast allows all your content to go anywhere with you,” said Borgar Ljosland, founder and CEO of FXI. “The marriage of the two technologies truly re-defines the meaning of seamless mobility.”
This week at the Mobile World Congress, Polkast and FXI jointly demonstrated the product’s ability to pick and choose photos, videos and other content remotely from a multitude of remote devices on an HDTV using Cotton Candy as the connected computing platform and a smartphone as the input device. For instance, when visiting family and friends, consumers can plug the USB-stick sized Cotton Candy into their TV and instantly access their complete suite of cloud and hardware devices, easily sharing their complete library of music, photos and videos.
“Get whatever content you want, wherever there is a screen,” said Hong Bui, CEO and founder of Polkast. “FXI and Polkast will together make the computing experience truly personal, portable and accessible. The holy grail of mobility.”
Demonstrated first in November 2011, Cotton Candy is a complete computer platform that will allow users a single, secure point of access to all personal cloud services and apps through their favorite operating system, while delivering a consistent experience on any screen through its USB and HDMI connections. The device can serve as a portable, secure thin client on PCs, Macs and notebooks as well as a set top box, gaming system, cloud computer and more.
Polkast provides users with the easiest, most cost effective solution for digital content access and management across a spectrum of mobile, computing and storage devices. Because it uses the network and storage a consumer already owns (the personal cloud), there is no need to sync and access content from a single cloud source.
Further details about the technology partnership and availability of Cotton Candy any screen computer will be released later this Summer.
Based in Capo Beach, California, Polkast is a privately-held software company founded in 2010 that has since gained traction with some of the world’s leading device manufacturers. Polkast software lets you seamlessly connect the dots in your digital life, quickly, securely and without limits. For more information about Polkast, please visit http://www.polkast.com
