SEATTLE, Oct 4, 1999 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Union-Street.Com (www.union-street.com), leading providers of interactive "stickiness" technology that increases Web site traffic and frequency, and WildTangent (www.wildtangent.com), providers of streaming media technology solutions for the interactive kiosk and video gaming markets, announced today they will partner with Compaq Computer Corporation (NYSE: CPQ) and add "community content" and streaming technology for Compaq's network gaming and interactive kiosk initiatives.
Compaq is currently working on several Network gaming and interactive kiosk projects and has been searching for partners that could add sizzle on the content side. They have found just that in Union-Street and WildTangent.
"It's exciting to find technologies that can greatly expand and enhance the user experience for network gamers and interactive kiosks," says Jim Newton, senior manager, North American Enterprise Services for Compaq. "Imagine being able to walk up to a kiosk and pull down a calendar to see when the next PC games will be released. Then go to a forum and see how others have rated the games. Then have the ability to see demos of the latest PC games, and if you like one, being able to buy it and have it remotely downloaded to your PC at home instantly. That scenario is a reality with Union-Street and WildTangent technology."
Union-Street and WildTangent technologies combine the power of the modern computer and the accessibility of a kiosk to create the next generation of Internet kiosks, capable of offering a variety of services, information, and entertainment that can be shared across kiosks and home computers via an Internet connection.
"We are very pleased that Compaq has chosen us to partner with on their projects and we all feel more confident than ever that we have an unbeatable combination of technology -- content that sizzles -- and practical applications that will drive kiosk placements," says Mitch Gilbert, Director of Strategic Partnerships for Union-Street.com.
