Roundbox Completes Acquisition of Jacked Technology

Roundbox, Inc., the global leader in mobile broadcast software, today announced the acquisition of Jacked, Inc.'s technology and intellectual property. Jacked, Inc., an innovator in real-time, broadcast-synchronized data services, developed pioneering platform and companion applications, which seamlessly deliver rich, real-time Web content contextually synchronized to and complementing live broadcast television. Jacked's patent-pending technology will be integrated into the Roundbox Mobile Broadcast Suite to enable its broadcast and device customers to deliver enhanced TV viewing experiences.

The Jacked product portfolio provides viewers with a customizable "second" screen experience providing real-time access to Web-based news, local information, sporting events, and other video links and images that are available elsewhere on the Internet but previously could not be pulled together in a single screen or coordinated with currently playing television. The Jacked platform has supported interactive experiences for over 9,000 NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA football and basketball games for leading broadcasters. Additionally, the Jacked product suite also includes search technology which supports all genres of live and on-demand content.
