LeoNovus announced that the Company has entered into a strategic alliance with Leadtek Research to create innovative Leadtek product offerings for the global market.
LeoNovus is the leading developer of a high performance industrial strength browser-based Internet software platform with a managed cloud system that provides consumer electronic devices access to all the features, content, and functionality available on the Internet without the viruses, malware and cost of a PC. The LeoNovus platform is flexible and can also enable additional vertical markets such as education, hospitality, and home automation, which are complimentary to Leadtek's hardware expertise and product offerings. Having the ability to leverage wireless connectivity and cloud support allows for easy adoption of follow on "hard" and "soft" applications and services that can be connected to an existing network using UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) standards. This managed cloud system provides "banking level" security including the ability to enable future features and functionality for recurring revenue over the life cycle of the device. Leadtek Research Inc., a Taiwanese company, is well known globally for its innovative visual graphics technologies and is backed by a highly qualified and experienced R&D team that is well known for integrating cutting edge technologies. In addition, Leadtek also works with top research bodies such as Computer and Communications Research Laboratories and Chunghwa Telecom Laboratories and maintains strategic alliances with chip vendors such as Intel, NVIDIA, and VIA. Leadtek maintains its leadership status in the Asia-Pacific market while extending its global sales network. These partnerships allow Leadtek immediate access to new technology and the ability to offer innovative products first to their customer base. Leadtek's knowledge in graphics, multimedia, motherboard and communications enable the company to offer multiple solutions supporting a large distribution channel of customers.
"I am very excited about this cooperation," said Gordon Campbell, CEO of LeoNovus. "Successful products thrive when fueled by solid technologies, innovation and customer scale. This partnership provides incredible scale, vast expertise in hardware and software innovation and a solid customer channel."
"We are ready for value-add services supported by cloud networking," said Leadtek CEO Lu Kun-Shan. "With over 20 years experience in visual computing and Remote Desktop technology, Leadtek can offer the best solutions. We will step forward to be a content, application and service provider, and are pleased to work with LeoNovus to enable this vision."
The LeoNovus software platform can be integrated into Leadtek's hardware systems to service customers in several vertical markets. The opportunity is to service existing customers that make up Leadtek's vast distribution channel as well as enabling new customers globally.
