San Francisco Bay Area Liveshare Events, First Big Push
Liveshare lets you visually experience the best of what San Francisco has to offer. You can scan the event listings on Monday and discover what's happening that week, and then share your experiences from sporting events, nightclubs, concerts – all your favorite activities. Over the past few months over 50 local San Francisco venues and events have featured Liveshare, including 111 Minna, Terra and the Social Media Prom.
In an innovative use of Liveshare, Stanford is taking the best images and projecting them directly onto the JumboTron during games. Also, bands like KISS and Ozzy Osborne are using Liveshare as an integral part of their concert experience, and other major acts will soon be launching with Liveshare as part of their fan experiences. In addition, people can share anytime on "Photos of the Day", 'I LOVE SAN FRANCISCO' and "Stanford 24/7" live streams.
Cooliris develops consumer applications that make the creation, sharing and discovery of content more immersive, intuitive, and personal. From transforming the online media browsing experience with the popular Cooliris 3D Wall, and the Wikipedia experience into a beautiful magazine-style layout with Discover for iPad, or sharing experiences "at the speed of life" with Liveshare for mobile, Cooliris leverages the full power of the latest hardware developments and software concepts.
