Koollage Launches Social Online Publishing Platform Ideal for the Mobile User

September 8, 2008

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ — DEMOfall 08 — Koollage today announced the launch of its new online publishing platform that enables users to quickly assemble, aggregate and deliver multimedia content in compact, easy-to- navigate, instantly sharable Pods (Packages-On-Demand). Pods give publishers the power to organize their rich media content and package it in a new format that works like a micro-web site or mini-application. Using a unique combination of patent-pending search conversion and Web 2.0 technologies, Koollage allows the effortless creation of portable multimedia information packets that are viewable on the Web and Web-enabled mobile devices.

Any type of media can be added to a Koollage Pod, including: audio; videos and images; RSS feeds; ecommerce components; maps; games; music; search results; and HTML and JavaScript. Users can leaf through frames like a book, rapidly skim summaries, add comments, rate content and share with others. Koollage Pods are currently available on the Web and the Apple iPhone.

Koollage unveiled this new platform at the DEMOfall conference, the premiere invitation only event that features the latest in cutting-edge technologies.

“Koollage’s new publishing platform enables anyone to gather the information they need and display it in a customizable format that lends itself well to a wide spectrum of form-factors. From businesses to consumers, Pods offer an ideal way to market products, services or brands, mobilize news, blogs, Web pages or any form of digital content,” said Mythili Sankaran, CEO of Koollage. “The built-in viral capabilities of Koollage Pods enable one- click distribution across social-networks and Web sites, allowing for content to reach audiences at the point of consumption.”

“Koollage Pods provide the missing link in the mobile ecosystem,” said Chris Shipley, executive producer of the DEMO Conferences. “Koollage offers a distinct advantage over its competition by coupling simplicity with deep functionality. The flexibility of the platform allows users to easily publish ‘on the go’ and bundle existing Web content or new user-generated media across a range of devices. Koollage’s technology has the power to dramatically change the mobile experience putting control firmly into the hands of the users and delivering on a compelling multi-media experience. DEMO has made its reputation by introducing new technology to the marketplace, and Koollage upholds that tradition.”

Koollage is paving the way for rich social interaction around content and information. The Web and iPhone are just the beginning.
