OnLive Launches CloudLift and New Line of Business, OnLive Go

OnLive, Inc. announced several exciting new innovations. As part of a major update to the OnLive(R) Game Service, the company is launching the new CloudLift(TM) subscription, which brings the freedom and convenience of cloud gaming to the PC download gaming space. Also OnLive Go debuts, a new business line that brings the benefits of cloud gaming such as instant launch and mobile compatibility to MMOs and virtual world experiences. In addition the company is delivering technology and performance upgrades and a new user interface. OnLive's new CloudLift subscription works by linking the player's game library with his or her OnLive account and syncing cloud saves automatically. Players can play games locally on their gaming PC when they're at home, or sign into OnLive on any device when on the go, and continue the same game right where they left off, no matter where they are. This gives gamers instant access to the full game experience on multiple platforms, even those on which the game is not normally supported, such as tablets, lightweight laptops, Macs, TVs with the OnLive Game System or the VIZIO(R) Co-Star, or on the LG Google TV. The CloudLift subscription works with supported games purchased from any digital download retailer and fully supports multiplayer gaming, so even titles without cloud saves benefit. To complement the CloudLift service, OnLive will also sell download codes. Purchase of a download code from OnLive will include a 7-day free trial of CloudLift, which makes OnLive the only digital download retailer that offers cloud play as an added benefit to game purchase.

In 2009, he founded Bulldog United, LLC, where he spearheaded the development of groundbreaking video fingerprinting technology and led the company through to its acquisition by Gracenote in May 2012.
