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.


"David is an expert at transforming business concepts into innovative products and services within the media and entertainment industries," said Javier Polo, CEO of PlayGiga. "As the former Head of Business Development for Gaikai, a US-based cloud gaming service, we are thrilled to have his guidance on our board."


With more than 20 years of technology consulting experience, Reitman currently serves Softtek as SVP leading the team focused on Communication, Media, Entertainment & Technology (CMET). He also serves on the board of Visionary Realms, Brad McQuaid's game studio. Additionally, he has served as a senior digital leader with SAP Hybris, Digital River, Equinix and AT&T.


"PlayGiga has unparalleled technology that will give them a differentiating advantage within the cloud gaming space," said Reitman. "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.


"David's deep experience and success across the tech and gaming industries makes him an excellent addition to the advisory board, as he has extensive expertise leading gaming services and digital transformations of global brands including Amazon, BBC, Blizzard Entertainment, CBS, Codemasters, Comcast, Cox, DirecTV, Disney/ABC, EA, Facebook, Google, Konami, Microsoft & Microsoft Game Studios, MLB, Netflix, Sony Interactive Entertainment (PlayStation), Sprint, Time Warner, Ubisoft, Viacom and Virgin Media," said Javier Polo, CEO of PlayGiga. "His work with AT&T makes him uniquely positioned to support our growth efforts and relationships with telecoms in the US and around the world."


PlayGiga's streaming service offers users a console-quality experience, curated catalogue of AAA games and mobile enabled parental control. Its patent-pending technology allows PlayGiga to stream games from the cloud with ultra-low latency and compression that provides a gaming experience like a dedicated video console but at a much lower cost. The result is a much better gaming experience for the user and a low-cost subscription offering for telecoms. After successful launches in Italy, Spain, Argentina, and Chile, PlayGiga is now aggressively expanding its B2B service throughout the world.


PlayGiga has agreements in place with more than 58 top publishers, including Capcom, Warner, Disney, Square Enix and Sega, and provides more than 200 AAA games.
