Cloud gaming provider OTOY has joined the prestigious agenda at the Cloud Gaming USA Conference (October 7-8 in San Francisco, CA) as the lead Diamond Sponsor. Having played a significant role in the growth of the cloud gaming industry, OTOY has solidified its stance by providing unparalleled support to the industry’s number one networking conference. OTOY CEO, Jules Urbach, will deliver this year’s keynote.

“We’re very excited to partner with the Cloud Gaming USA Conference as their lead sponsor. The coming months are going to mark a major turning point for cloud gaming,” says Urbach.

With market forecasts suggesting that cloud gaming revenues will reach over six percent of the total gaming market by 2017 (equal to a staggering $4bln), Urbach adds: “We feel the timing couldn’t be better for OTOY to engage and support the cloud gaming community in this way.”

OTOY is an active participant in the expected growth of the cloud gaming market. Speaking on OTOY’s forthcoming release (ed. expected Q4 2013), Urbach enthusiastically discusses ORBX.js which revolutionizes the way games are streamed by end users.

“It’s a JavaScript library developed by OTOY, and is the first ‘zero client’ cloud gaming system for HTML5 browsers. ORBX.js delivers HD cloud gaming streams to any browser, at 720p60 or 1080p60, using pure HTML5 and JavaScript,” says Urbach. Impressively the system relies on no dependency or plug-ins like Java or Flash.

The new system is receiving wide scale praise and support from the HTML5 community, including Brendan Eich, the creator of JavaScript and Mozilla CTO. Eich has reported on the impact of the future of the web and referenced ORBX.js in a recent article (ed. https://brendaneich.com/2013/05/today-i-saw-the-future/.).

“Cloud Gaming USA provides invaluable insight on business models on the cloud, and perspectives on where the market is heading,” says George Kiley, Managing Director, Video Games Intelligence. “We are hugely excited to announce OTOY’s invaluable support for the conference.”

Cloud Gaming USA is the must attend event in 2013. Held on October 7-8 in San Francisco, over 250 c-level representatives from every one of America's top 20 publishers come together at the only Cloud Gaming event. After two sell-out years, early booking is strongly advised. Book your place online now: https://secure.firstconf.com/videogamesintelligence/cloud-gaming-usa/register.php
