Emerge Gaming (ASX:EM1) has begun distributing its game streaming technology ‘Gamecloud’ in Tier 1 markets across multiple regions.
Regarded as the ‘Netflix of gaming’, the Gamecloud offers instant streaming of hundreds of high-quality 3D games for mobile devices, allowing multiplayer gaming, video streaming and social networking.
The roll-out strategy will begin in markets such as South Africa, USA, Australia, UK, India, South America and Africa with the aim of establishing relationships with telecommunication companies to provide access to potential subscribers and fast-track the regional integration.

Emerge Gaming CEO Greg Stevens said: “I’m confident and excited about the launch in the markets we have agreed as this revolutionary technology will set the stage for innovation in the gaming and esports space.”
Key features of the enhanced user experience for GameCloud include:

Optimised for 5G
The rollout is expected to maximise exposure of the platform and drive user acquisitions, with the company’s monetisation strategy including unique eCommerce and advertising streaming functionality.
The GameCloud is already optimised for 5G after the successful showcase at 5G Garage in Singapore with Singtel, Singapore’s leading telecommunications group.
Optus Australia has completed live 5G trials in Sydney with fixed wireless broadband services to be released over the coming months.

The company is in discussions with other telecommunication companies and expects imminent engagements in the near term.
