Whether it's music, movies, games, live streaming video, or apps that help them keep close to the people who matter most, RealNetworks thrives on giving people the fresh and entertaining experiences they deserve—whenever, wherever they want.
We do this in two ways: directly to consumers through our applications and services and through partnerships with well-established businesses and mobile operators throughout the world.
Many people know RealNetworks from way back in 1995, when we introduced RealAudio®, the first audio streaming solution for the Internet. Continued innovation led to generations of RealVideo® and what is now known as RealPlayer®, which is downloaded millions of times per month.
We’re very proud of the fact that RealPlayer stands as one of the most popular applications on the market, due in part to continuous improvements in delivery quality and product features and to its broad compatibility across a wide variety of devices.
But RealPlayer is only one part of the story.
For instance, RealNetworks is also the largest creator, publisher, and distributor of casual games available through the global destinations of GameHouse®, Zylom, and Atrativa.
In addition, RealNetworks offers one-stop premium content, including music, video, and games, through SuperPass. This monthly membership package features premium content, Rhapsody MP3 music credits, a new social game each month, and more.
And you may not realize that our technology powers audio, video, ringback tones, and messaging on more than 700 million mobile handsets from some of the world’s most popular mobile carriers.
These are just a few examples of the many ways in which we create innovative applications and services that make it easy for people to enjoy digital media—whenever and wherever they want. Ultimately, we feel that technology is a creative expression. This belief inspires our thinking and helps us create experiences that help people enjoy life a little more, and sometimes, help the world around us progress.
