PlayOn Unveils PlayMark Browser Extension to Tag and Play any Online Video on TV and Mobile

PlayOn, the media server software from MediaMall Technologies that magically streams your favorite online videos to your TV and mobile devices, today unveiled a new product and partnership: PlayMark, a browser extension for the company’s PlayOn TV-streaming software, and PlayLater for the HP Pocket Playlist, a virtual DVR for online videos.

PlayMark is a browser add-on that lets users easily tag and record online videos to watch later on their TV or mobile device. The PlayMark browser extension works seamlessly with PlayOn and the PlayLater online DVR. With just a couple of clicks, users can record and save almost any online video including those from web-only sites like Funny or Die, Boing Boing, NESN and millions of other streaming sites. PlayMark will be available for new and existing PlayOn Premium customers in late Q1.

PlayOn also announced PlayLater for the HP Pocket Playlist. PlayLater is a DVR for online videos. The HP Pocket Playlist is a new device that lets users stream movies, music, TV shows and photos to five individual mobile devices at the same time with no internet connection required. With PlayLater, users can record shows from Hulu, Netflix and more than 55 other channels like Comedy Central, ESPN, Nick, and TBS. By storing these recordings on the 30 gigabyte HP Pocket Playlist, it’s like having a portable DVR in your pocket – you can watch recorded videos on any mobile device whenever and wherever, and without using any of those precious gigabytes of smartphone or tablet memory. All HP Pocket Playlists will come with a free month of PlayLater.

“We are living in an age where people accept the fact that you have to watch content on your computer or pay extra to get it to your TV,” said MediaMall Technologies CEO Jeff Lawrence. “At PlayOn, we are working to shake this mindset and liberate online content so people can watch on their TV, phone and tablet; so they can take it on the go and access it when they may not have an internet connection or want to use their data plans. This is our mission and what we hope to get one step closer to with the launch of PlayMark and our partnership with the HP Pocket Playlist.”

PlayOn will be demoing PlayMark, PlayLater for the HP Pocket Playlist and the recently announced PlayOn for the Wii U January 7th (tonight) at the 2013 Pepcom Digital Experience show, preceding the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
