The Dallas Stars and Desksite announced today the launch of Stars DeskSite, a new, interactive video app that proactively delivers premium, high-definition video content to fans – for free.
The Stars DeskSite is a personalized HD video content library constructed to support fans’ growing consumption of online video while offline on their desktop, laptop, or tablet. Exclusively modeled for the “Big Screen” and essentially a DVR for the Internet, the DeskSite serves as a digital fan hub for HD video content created by the team.
“We are excited to partner with Desksite, a company that is exploring new ways for fans to consume team driven content,” Dallas Stars Vice President of Production and Entertainment Jason Walsh said. "We think their simple, fan friendly platform is a winner."
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 game highlights, postgame recaps, player and coach interviews, and more.
“The Stars DeskSite offers fans everything they want, and equally important, nothing they don’t,” Desksite CEO Richard Gillam said. “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 Stars fan, this is a ‘must have’ experience.”
