NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The New Jersey Devils have officially launched the Devils DeskSite, a new, interactive video app that proactively delivers premium, high-definition video content to fans – for free.
The Devils DeskSite is a personalized HD video content library constructed to support fans' growing consumption of online video. Exclusively modeled for the "Big Screen" and essentially a DVR for the Internet, the DeskSite serves as a digital fan hub for HD video, web content, and social conversation around the team.
"Devils fans are some of the most passionate and engaging in all of sports, and we are focused on bringing our team closer to them," said Adam Davis, Chief Revenue Officer of the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center. "We are excited to partner with an innovative company like DeskSite to provide our fans with a new way to connect with our video content."
DeskSite enables instantaneous video playback, freeing fans from the buffering, freezing and dropping associated with streaming video on a website. Videos are automatically downloaded and stored directly to users' devices, allowing fans the ability to view content offline, without an Internet connection. The platform also includes audiovisual alerts, reducing the delay between a video's initial release and fan access. Video programming consists of game highlights, postgame recaps, player and coach interviews, and more.
"The Devils DeskSite offers fans everything they want, and equally important, nothing they don't," said Richard Gillam, CEO of DeskSite. "With this new platform, we've made some exciting leaps forward in the evolution of digital media, most notably in the twin pillars of content curation and content access. If you're a serious Devils fan, this is a 'must have' experience."
In order to provide this immersive fan experience, the Devils partnered with DeskSite, a digital media company based in Irvine, Calif.

The company has partnered with many of the world's most valuable sports teams to continuously deliver highly-produced, team-specific HD video content across a broad demographic spectrum.
