TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - November 30, 2016) - Keek Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQB: KEEKF) today is pleased to announce that live video game streaming will soon be launched inside the Peeks platform. This new technology will allow gaming enthusiasts to stream directly from their desktops to mobile viewers on Peeks. A gaming channel will be included in the upcoming "Discovery" section. Select partners in the gaming vertical are participating in the testing of the service and Peeks users will soon begin to see them appear on the Peeks network. The live video game streaming ability will initially be exclusive to certain influencers and power users, but will be made available to the general public in the coming months.
"I'm very happy that we will be able to launch our live video game streaming service months ahead of our original schedule. Our professional streaming services continue to prove the infinite flexibility of our platform which allows us to compete and surpass our competitors in several different verticals, including the livestreaming video gamer market," said Mark Itwaru, CEO of Keek Inc.
Streaming professional and interactive content is a key focus of the Peeks platform development. On October 31, 2016, the Peeks platform successfully streamed five uninterrupted hours of camera fed professionally produced live content from the Los Angeles Halloween House Party (see press release dated November 2, 2016). The earlier than expected release of the live video game streaming capabilities was made possible as a result of the successful pilot at the Halloween House Party. The same back end technology is being utilized for the live video game streaming, and is being paired with new front end developments specifically developed for the desktop gaming industry.
As with all livestreams in the Peeks service, broadcasters in the gaming industry will be able to interact live with fans, receive likes and cash tips in real-time, and will have access to the upcoming Offer Box technology where they or their sponsoring brands can create and distribute actionable incentives to their audiences. For example, a viewer may purchase a video game while watching a broadcaster playing the same game live on Peeks, or purchase gaming merchandise directly from their favourite gaming influencer. A number of video game producing companies have already signed up to advertise their games and merchandise through the upcoming Offer Box.
The Company also announced that it has issued 1,354,000 common shares pursuant to the exercising of 1,050,000 warrants with an exercise price of $0.30 and 304,000 options with a weighted average exercise price of $1.12, resulting in total gross proceeds of $655,000 being received by the Company.
The Company also wishes to advise that pursuant to receiving shareholder approval to change the name of the Company at a meeting of its shareholders held on March 11, 2016, the Board of Directors and Management intend to change the name and stock symbols of the Company on or before March 1, 2017. The final Company name and stock symbols are still under consideration.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) has reviewed or accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this Release.
The information and statements in this news release contain certain forward-looking information relating to the implementation and functionality of certain technologies and capabilities being developed and integrated into the Peeks livestreaming service, and the effective date of future corporate developments including a change in the Company's name and stock symbols. This forward-looking information is subject to certain risks and uncertainties and may be based on assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking information.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
