MONTREAL -- Aug. 12, 2011 -- X2O Media, a full-service provider of software, network management, and content services for professional visual communication applications, today introduced the X2O Rogers Cup Experience tablet app for the BlackBerry(R) PlayBook(TM). Available to select VIP fans attending the Rogers Cup tennis tournament presented by National Bank in Toronto and Montreal, the unique application offers a number of powerful features to create a more visually exciting, informative, and interactive tournament experience, all at the touch of a finger.
The best men and women in tennis are currently battling it out at the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank in Toronto (women's tournament) and Montreal (men's tournament), culminating with the final matches on Aug. 14. This is the first time in the Cup's 131-year history when both tournaments are playing in the same week.
Beginning with the semifinals on Aug. 12, the X2O Rogers Cup Experience BlackBerry PlayBook app will be available to select VIP guests in the Cisco Systems hospitality suites at the Toronto and Montreal tournaments. With the application, watching live videos of Cup matches and game highlights is only the start. Users can access all match scores, view player profiles, follow and send tweets on the action, and even view live weather feeds with radar maps.
In addition, fans will be able to interact with a large-screen version of the app on digital touchscreens displaying the same content available on the tablets.
"The Rogers Cup has a long and proud history in Canada, so we really wanted to bring something special to the event," said David Wilkins, president and CEO of X2O Media. "This tablet app is the ultimate companion for tennis fans, taking the game to a whole new level with live videos, player information, social networking, and much more. We have taken our visual communications beyond the large-format display, making the X2O Rogers Cup Experience an interactive and social one."
