WASHINGTON, DC -- The Washington Capitals are the most recent NHL team to partner with DeskSite, officially launching the Capitals DeskSite, a new, interactive video app that proactively delivers premium, high-definition video content on-demand to fans - for free.
Fans can download the Capitals DeskSite at www.CapitalsDeskSite.com.
The Capitals DeskSite is a personalized HD video content library constructed to support fans' growing consumption of online video. Exclusively modeled for the "Big Screen" and essentially a DVR for the Internet, the DeskSite serves as a digital fan hub for HD video, web content, and social conversation around the Capitals.
"As an organization, we are always looking to provide quality content to our fans in as many ways as possible," said Patrick Duffy, Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for Monumental Sports. "DeskSite provides a new and convenient way for people to access that content and stay connected with our teams."
DeskSite enables instantaneous video playback, freeing fans from the buffering, freezing and dropping associated with streaming video on a website. Videos are automatically downloaded and stored directly to users' devices, allowing fans the ability to view content offline, without an Internet connection. The platform also includes audiovisual alerts, reducing the delay between a video's initial release and fan access. Video programming consists of interviews with players and coaches, postgame recaps, breaking news, in-depth scouting combine and draft coverage, Red Rockers spotlights, and more.
"The Capitals DeskSite offers fans everything they want, and equally important, nothing they don't," said Richard Gillam, CEO of DeskSite. "With this new platform, we've made some exciting leaps forward in the evolution of digital media, most notably in the twin pillars of content curation and content access. If you're a serious Capitals fan, this is a 'must have' experience."
In order to provide this immersive fan experience, the Capitals partnered with DeskSite, a digital media company based in Irvine, Calif.
DeskSite is a next-generation digital media company that's revolutionizing the way fans connect with their favorite entertainment brands. The company has partnered with many of the world's most valuable sports teams to continuously deliver highly-produced, team-specific HD video content across a broad demographic spectrum.
