Giga Entertainment Media (GEM), a media technology development company, today announced its GIGANETTV proprietary technology – allowing 30 synchronized real-time content streams on one site – officially launched at the 2014 National Association of Broadcasters Show (NAB Show®) and received an overwhelming response from a wide range of industry leaders attending the show.
Senior-level executives from more than 500 companies said they see the technology as integral to their business and want to adopt it as soon as possible. GEM has already begun discussing transactions with many of the companies, which include well-known brands from around the world.
