Digital Media Startup srfr is Simplifying the Consumer Video Streaming Experience and Focusing on a Platform Agnostic OTT Solution
Venice, California(9/27/2016) –
If you’ve ever tried to get that amazing video from your phone’s screen up onto your TV, you know as well as anyone what it feels like to yell at an inanimate object. While yes, mobile device-to-television streaming technologies do currently exist, seeing people actually use them without throwing their hands up in the air is rare. This pain exists now for several reasons. First, existing device-to-TV streaming technologies generally require some sort of relatively complex onboarding and/or syncing process with additional hardware, sticks and dongles. Second, if the brand of television or video service provider doesn’t appropriately match the mobile device in a way that allows for streaming, you’re pretty much out of luck. Fear not, video watchers! srfr is here to ease your pain and blow your mind.
srfr is a digital media company that has created a technology to easily stream video content from a mobile device to a smart television at the touch of a button. By leveraging advanced proprietary technology, a simple User Interface, and an OTT complimentary API against the existing lag in platform-agnostic IoT technology, srfr lets users cut through all the noise and just watch. Currently srfr enables you to easily stream videos from Facebook, Dropbox, Snapchat & your camera roll across your phone and TV. And there’s more content and features to come.
“The reason we started srfr is that we experienced first-hand the pain of a friend sending you a video and you only being able to watch it on your phone if at all,” says Dan Unger, Founder and CEO of srfr. “In today’s environment where everyone is creating and watching videos on their phones and spending more time on Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook, the need for an easy solution like srfr is critical.”
In addition to being platform-agnostic and fantastically easy to use, srfr utilizes a cloud-based solution utilizing open source DLNA along with its own proprietary technology. Also, not only does srfr allow users to stream digital videos from device to TV, the app also lets them easily stream content from their Facebook and Snapchat accounts, Dropbox files, even their mobile device’s camera roll.
More than ever before, consumers are demanding that the technologies they incorporate into their daily lives not only work perfectly, but are intuitively understandable and easy to use. srfr has this covered better than any other streaming technology on the market. Audiences don’t need another dongle or streaming stick to watch videos; and it’s free. Additionally, and directly tied to this ease of use, srfr allows for the advent of virtually unlimited applicative opportunities and is currently working on licensing agreements to bring this technology to market leading OTT Video apps.
