NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November
8, 2018 / Cloud-Games-as-a-Service (CGaaS) company, PlayGiga, today announced the addition of David Reitman, a digital solutions senior leader, as a Board Advisor.
Reitman brings extensive expertise around business operations, business development, consulting, digital technology solutions and fundraising to PlayGiga.

"The company's technology is GPU agnostic, does not require any game code changes to operate on the platform and its streaming technology does not add any additional latency overhead whatsoever."
Reitman's appointment comes on the heels of PlayGiga's recent announcement of its US rollout and partnership with Intel. PlayGiga markets its service as a B2B solution for telecom & ISP providers, broadcast and media companies and video game developers and publishers as a white-label solution to meet their direct to consumer business goals. As these companies look to offer new types of entertainment in partnership with their video and music streaming services, PlayGiga is the perfect solution.
