Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) December 18, 2007
Fightersoft public company (DCUV.OB) and mobile telecom operator Orange are formalizing an agreement in Romania in order to reach a partnership. Orange Romania representatives are very interested to collaborate with Fightersoft. The partnership's objective is to provide specialized and dedicated video solutions for Romanian major companies using Orange's infrastructure.
Providing that both parties will not experience any unexpected hurdles, the formalization process is expected to be finalized around the end of 2007.
Discussions with Orange to launch mobile video packages to the European consumer market are still under way. Based on the intended successful partnership, a result is expected for the first quarter of 2008.
The consumer applications of Fightersoft, currently called Star Media Center, Mobile Tracking System and Share Mobile will be combined into one web based application suite called ICEEYOO (pronounced as: "I see you"). The web site http://www.iceeyoo.com will be launched mid January 2008 and will be the "control center" from which users can access the various Fightersoft applications and some exciting new functionalities.
ICEEYOO users will be encouraged to register themselves and more functionality will be made available for each user once the system has built up a profile on them. Various friends-get-friends applications and campaigns will be part of the ICEEYOO functionality. All consumer applications will be bundled under the brand name ICEEYOO; the commercial activities for the corporate and professional markets will remain to be marketed under the name Fightersoft.
The Fightersoft technologies will be offered to international mobile telecom operators, TV stations, TV cable and satellite operators and computer hardware manufacturers under a licensing model. Those global and local partners will be enabled to create and market their own video, tracking and interaction products, based on Fightersoft technology, under their own brand name.
The various Fightersoft national sales teams will also focus on offering tailor made solutions to the local corporate markets using Fightersoft's mobile video and tracking technologies.
Starting December 2007 tests will be conducted with two European TV stations regarding the streaming of live TV signals to mobile phones. The objective is to prove the fact that the Fightersoft streaming video technology enables a high-quality live TV stream to be displayed on mobile phones using small bandwidths and without the necessity of plug-ins.
The partners in this test are a leading European TV group and a specialized travel TV station. Under the terms of the test agreements the names of the TV stations cannot yet be revealed. Once the internal tests have been approved in January or February 2008, and public tests have started, further details will be announced.
Fightersoft has also reached an agreement with the Romanian Jandarmeria, part of the Romanian armed forces, to develop a prototype which transmits streaming video signals from field operatives to a command center, using low bandwidth GSM or UMTS signals. This prototype consists of software and hardware components. These hardware components will be supplied by a specialized partner. The prototype is scheduled to be ready by February 2008. Upon approval Fightersoft will supply the video solution to the Romanian army under terms later to be agreed upon.
Also, upon approval of the prototype, currently developed for the Romanian army, Fightersoft is likely to enter into an agreement with a global mobile hardware supplier to offer the video solution to various NATO partners. Fightersoft will also be establishing a subsidiary, Fightersoft Security Solutions, in The Netherlands and United States, to develop and manage the solutions for the defence and corporate security industry.
The international management of Fightersoft will be concentrated in Asia, currently out of Bangkok. From here the international expansion will be coordinated and the Asian markets serviced.
The Romanian Fightersoft SRL will be become the coordinating office for the sales and operations in the Eastern European market and Russia. A second company, Fightersoft Technologies, will be set up in Romania. This company will host the international technological development for Fightersoft. Sales and Operations for West, North and South Europe will be coordinated out of The Netherlands.
An agreement has also been closed with the Dutch company Sneap Invest BV to manage the European activities for Fightersoft out of its office in Hilversum. Negotiations are being finalized with the Result group (http://www.result.com) to represent Fightersoft on national level in the countries Germany, United Kingdom, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Spain, Mexico and Brazil. On behalf of Result Group all activities regarding Fightersoft will be coordinated by Mr. Bob Stumpel.
