OnLive and Mad Catz Bring AAA Games to Big Screens With the M.O.J.O. Micro-Console For Android

New Enhanced OnLive Android App Delivers the Latest High-End Games on M.O.J.O.

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/04/14 -- OnLive, the leader in cloud gaming, and Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. ("Mad Catz") (NYSE MKT: MCZ) (TSX: MCZ), today announced completing joint development to optimize OnLive's Android™ app for the Mad Catz® M.O.J.O.™ micro-console for Android.

Using the updated OnLive Android app (available to download free from the Google Play store), the Mad Catz M.O.J.O. micro-console for Android can stream PC games from OnLive's high-end gaming optimized servers, enabling players on this small-but-powerful micro-console to have access to over 250 AAA games from OnLive's PlayPack™ game service bundle, as well as to their own game libraries using OnLive's new CloudLift™ service.

The OnLive Android app is fully customized for use with M.O.J.O. and the Mad Catz C.T.R.L. Mobile Gamepad, both key products in the Mad Catz GameSmart™ range of mobile hardware. Bandwidth caps, previously fixed for use on mobile Android devices, are now user-defined and enable 720p60 resolution when connected to an HD TV or monitor.

"We designed M.O.J.O. to a high specification, as we conceived the platform to grow and evolve, encompassing new features and services over time" said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz, "With the new generation of Cloud Gaming that OnLive heralds, gamers can now play AAA and PC Steam-purchased games in high-definition through their M.O.J.O. With our dedicated C.T.R.L.R, we can move the high-end gaming experience away from the desktop PC and into the living room."

"One of our best features is that OnLive brings big games to small devices," said Rick Sanchez, VP of Product and Marketing at OnLive. "We want to be everywhere the gamer wants to play their games, and M.O.J.O. from Mad Catz is a perfect fit in every respect. As a micro-console powered by Android, it's powerful beyond its size, and now by installing the optimized OnLive Android app, users have access to the latest AAA games from publishers like Codemasters, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, Gaijin Entertainment, Kalypso, Paradox, and Warner Bros."

Details of the games available to play using CloudLift and the OnLive Game Service are available at games.onlive.com/cloudlift including a free 7-day trial of CloudLift for new users. The new OnLive Android app can be downloaded free from the Google Play store.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dr. Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, presented the findings of a series of six detailed case studies of how large corporations are implementing IoT. The session explored how IoT has improved their economic performance, had major impacts on business models and resulted in impressive ROIs. The companies covered span manufacturing and services firms. He also explored servicification, how manufacturing firms shift from se...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
