    News release

    They put out a news release on the 10th and the bottom of the release gave the company information indicating they still had over 2500 employees. Huh? I tried copying the article but Yahoo would not let me. Here is a portion of it.

    LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2013) - KIT digital, Inc., has been commissioned by Eurosport, Europe's leading sports entertainment group to deliver a consistent and characterful user experience for its online and connected television services, which could lead to roll out to other platforms including computers, smartphones and tablets.

    The first phase of the project was to deliver connectivity through connected televisions from LG, Panasonic and Samsung. Given that the three leading vendors operated significantly different platforms, the KIT digital team first developed a baseline standard to work well on each platform, determining the practical limits of page data and complex transitions. This was used as the reference point to ensure that a common design would be equally effective and functional on any device.

    The team worked closely with stakeholders across Eurosport to determine their priorities in terms of on-screen functionality, and how the channel's distinctive branding could be developed to create a consistent, attractive and immersive look and feel. They then looked at the requirements from the consumer viewpoint, determining user journeys, paying particular attention to the requirements of live television, which is a central requirement of sports broadcasting and a core element of Eurosport's DNA.

      2Si made it's US debut at 2nd Screen Sunday and was a big hit with media, industry experts and attendees alike. 2Si is a white label social program guide app for the world's multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) and drew a lot of attention for its social and advertising capabilities.
      "KIT had an overwhelmingly positive response to 2Si. We demonstrated its capabilities to an audience of over 400 industry insiders at the 2nd Screen Sunday summit and wowed an audience that isn't easily impressed," noted Alan Wolk, KIT digital's Global Lead Analyst, who along with the KIT team provided dozens of private demonstrations at KIT's NAB booth. "What people responded to was the common sense approach of an app clearly aimed at network operators and broadcasters and that the app provides a functional advertising model."
      KIT's high performance web-based video asset management system (OVP), KIT Cloud generated a lot of interest due to its powerful ability to deliver a TV-like experience over the internet.
      "The electronic program guide (EPG) we have integrated to KIT Cloud helps close the gap between traditional OVP and OTT solutions. It gives viewers the ability to see what's coming up 24/7 across all screens at a much lower price point for content aggregators than a fully-fledged OTT solution," said Nick Athanassiadis, Global General Manger, OVP.
      KIT Cloud also launched its ability to integrate digital signage into its solutions. Mr. Athanassiadis explained, "After implementing digital signage in EMEA for many years, NAB was the first time we showcased the solution in the US. We had tremendous interest from a number of existing and prospective clients to be able to access four
