10th February, 2010: Malmö, Sweden– Teleca, a world-leading supplier of solutions and services to the mobile industry today announced a partnership agreement with Antix Labs. Antix uniquely provides all of the elements and infrastructure necessary for carriers and manufacturers to deliver an end-to-end networked, native games service across multiple screens including mobile phones, TVs and PCs.
Antix’s game service includes comprehensive developer tools, certification service, store and warehouse along with its on-device software client. Consumers using the Antix service can play premium quality, casual-to-AAA titles across multiple screens irrespective of variations in screen size, input device, operating system and chipset. Content can be distributed virally via the cloud or off-network from one device to another such as from a TV to a phone or a PC to an STB, alleviating bandwidth problems for carriers whilst the payment transaction is still handled via the service provider’s store. Convenient‘Try Before You Buy’ services are available both on the device or directly in consumers’ PC browsers connected to a store.
By utilizing its global offshore resources and relationships with major device manufacturers, mobile operators and the application development community, Teleca will become the Antix Development Partner integrating all parts of the Antix solution and providing technical support and customization services to manufacturers and carriers.
“Partnering with Antix opens up a whole new dimension for us and is a step forward for the gaming industry. Antix is already working with many of the world’s leading device makers and is uniquely placed to drive this multi-screen revolution, delivering social network and other content services to consumers using phones and other devices such as TVs especially when combined with our global presence and integration expertise,” commented Andrew Till, Vice President of Solutions Marketing at Teleca Ltd.
“We wanted Teleca’s outstanding know-how across a diverse range of platforms like Windows Mobile, Android and Symbian, its worldwide engineering force and its many relationships with key carriers and manufacturers; we are collaborating to manage our multi-screen service rollout and subsequent customer support. Through this partnership we can be even more effective in exploiting the many advances in connected gaming enabled by Antix to deliver to consumers the services that they want where they want them”, said Francis Charig, Antix’s Chief Executive.

About Antix Labs
The Antix Game Player (AGP) is an on-device software client for native games services licensed to multiple tier one device makers. Third party casual, advanced casual and premium games are distributed in a device-independent format similar in concept to MP3 or PDF. This format lets consumers access and share games from any of their connected Antix-powered 'screens', which include mobile phones, TVs, STBs, PMPs, and PCs. In much the same way as they do already with music, photos and videos, consumers can distribute trial games virally across networks and off-line to their friends and family while still protecting the rights and revenues of operators and publishers. In addition to AGP itself, Antix provides the corresponding tools, certification mechanism, optional white-label store, and optional game warehousing necessary to deploy a complete service offering.
