DETROIT — Just in time for the puck drop on the 2015-16 NHL season, the Detroit Red Wings have partnered with a California entertainment company to launch a new free video app that delivers high-definition video content to fans.
The Red Wings DeskSite is a personalized HD video content library constructed to support fans’ growing consumption of online video by providing instant access to every Red Wings video produced.
“This partnership with DeskSite continues our efforts to give Red Wings fans easy access to content to stay updated with news surrounding the team and never miss a moment of Red Wings action,” said Tom Wilson, president and CEO of Olympia Entertainment. “DeskSite brings all the fantastic content available on DetroitRedWings.com to one centralized location, making it extremely convenient and user-friendly.”
DeskSite enables instantaneous video playback, freeing fans from the buffering, freezing and dropping associated with streaming video on a website. Videos are automatically downloaded and stored directly to users’ devices, allowing fans the ability to view content offline, without an Internet connection.
The platform also includes audiovisual alerts, reducing the delay between a video’s initial release and fan access. Video programming consists of Red Wings game highlights, postgame recaps, player and coach interviews, and additional behind-the-scenes footage.
Said DeskSite CEO Richard Gillam: “With this new platform, we’ve made some exciting leaps forward in the evolution of digital media, most notably in the twin pillars of content curation and content access. If you’re a serious Red Wings fan, this is a ‘must have’ experience.”
