The company connects consumers with their digital media both directly and through partners, aiming to support every network, device, media type and social network. The company provides the digital media services and products the company creates to consumers, mobile carriers and other businesses. The company’s consumer products and services include RealPlayer, a media player; casual games; and subscription services that provide access to storage and digital media content. Segments The company operates in three segments: RealPlayer Group, Mobile Entertainment, and Games. RealPlayer Group segment The RealPlayer Group business consists of RealPlayer and related products and services, including RealPlayer Cloud, which the company launched in 2013. RealPlayer: The company’s RealPlayer media player software includes features and services that enable consumers to discover, play, download, manage and edit digital video. Consumers can: stream audio and video, download and save their photos and Web videos from thousands of Websites, transfer their photos and video content to and from portable devices, share photos and video links with their contacts on social networks, edit their own video content, save CDs to their personal digital music libraries, and burn CDs and transfer their audio and video content to portable devices. RealPlayer Cloud is an integrated video player and cloud service, which is free to consumers up to a certain storage level after which additional storage is available based on a tiered subscription fee. SuperPass is its subscription service that provides consumers with access to a range of digital entertainment content for a monthly fee. Licensing: In addition to consumer products, the company also licenses its technology to various mobile network operators worldwide. The company has entered into agreements with companies such as Samsung, Nokia, and Lenovo to preinstall its mobile media player software on mobile phones. Mobile Entertainment segment Mobile Entertainment consists of the digital media services the company provides to network service providers as software as a service (SaaS) offerings; and sales of Helix media solutions.
