Siemens Invests in GlooLabs for Remote Access to Home Media

Siemens Acceleration in Communications has made an equity investmnet in GlooLabs, a start-up offering software for remote access to multimedia content. GlooLabs' GlooNetT is a Java-based platform that allows digital media stored on a home computer to be accessed remotely through any Internet-enabled computer, mobile phone, or PDA. The funding will allow GlooLabs to expand its product portfolio and ramp-up operations for large scale customer deployments.

Siemens said seamless access to personal media and other data has become considerably important in the converging computing and home entertainment environments. GlooLabs' architectural approach overcomes the current gap of desktop and browser based solutions by allowing end users to retrieve media files stored on various mobile devices and view or play it on any other networked device.

A public demonstration site for GlooNetT is available at the GlooLabs' website.
