Los Angeles, CA – July 14, 2014 -Global Entertainment Holdings GBHL has announced that its subsidiary, Global Entertainment Media (GEM) has completed a successful demonstration of the i-HUB set-top operating device, a new convergence technology system that enables internet users and content viewers to easily find and view countless hours of programming available throughout the internet with just a few “clicks”.
The demonstration was witnessed by Kirk Kirkpatrick, CEO of MDS America, one of the leading MVDDS (Multichannel Video and Data Distribution Service) technology companies with interests throughout the world including a 700 channel system in the UAE serving Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Following the demonstration, Mr. Kirkpatrick stated that he had “great confidence that GEM’s set top device not only performs well, but that it will indeed efficiently combine content and technology at a far superior level and lower price than any potential competitors as a result of GEM’s unique capability of a ‘back channel’ enabling users to seek and source all forms of Internet content and ‘pull’ such content down from the web to the viewer’s monitor/tv.” Kirkpatrick added, “I was also impressed with the look and feel of the electronic program guide that is embedded within the i-HUB system to enable the user to search the entire web for specific content.”
Gary Rasmussen, Chief Executive Officer of Global Universal Entertainment, stated, “Our next objective is to field test a consumer version of i-HUB using selected MDS America’s subscribers to their flagship MVDDS operation in Albuquerque, NM, to be followed by an extensive rollout throughout the country and, ultimately, worldwide. It is part of Global Entertainment’s planned diversification into delivery of media content, as well as production of compelling and sought-after video entertainment.”
