OnLive to Support Intel®-based Consumer Electronic Devices
Intel® Atom™ Processor CE4100-powered Smart TV Devices: TVs, Blu-ray Players and Set-top Boxes to Deliver OnLive Cloud Gaming Service
Los Angeles, Calif. (E3 Expo 2011) — June 2, 2011 — OnLive, the pioneer of on-demand, instant-play video games is pleased to announce that Intel®-based consumer electronic devices—including the latest smart TVs, Blu-ray players and IPTV set-top boxes —will be able to deliver the full OnLive cloud gaming experience with ultra-fast response times at HDTV resolution and support for full 5.1 surround sound. Once OnLive begins to offer 3D games, Intel devices that support 3D will deliver a full, immersive 3D experience as well.
The Intel® Atom™ Processor CE4100 packs the processing power and features to deliver the full OnLive Game Service experience on any HDTV without the need for a videogame console. The combination of Intel and OnLive technology enables console-class gaming (and beyond) with no console at all.
“The OnLive gaming experience on Intel-based consumer devices is superb,” said OnLive Founder & CEO Steve Perlman. “Intel enables instant HDTV gameplay and demos from OnLive’s growing library of over 100 high-performance games, as well as OnLive exclusive social features, such as massive spectating, Brag Clip™ videos, and automatic Facebook video postings. OnLive is delighted to be working with Intel to bring high-performance cloud gaming into millions of homes throughout the world.”
OnLive’s pioneering cloud gaming service runs the latest high-end videogames on vast numbers of high-performance servers in data centers distributed throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Intel’s server-class processors are at the heart of many of OnLive’s most powerful servers. Using OnLive’s patented technology, low-latency compressed video from these servers is delivered reliably over consumer-grade wired and wireless Internet connections to almost any Intel-based PC or Mac®, any HDTV via the OnLive MicroConsole™ TV adapter, and to iOS and Android tablets—and soon Intel-based smart TV devices, such as TVs, Blu-ray players, media players and IPTV set-top boxes.
Literally, from Intel-based servers to Intel-based PC, Mac or consumer electronic devices, OnLive is delivering a seamless, low-latency, high-end videogame experience, despite spanning a thousand miles or more through the Internet.
