Five-time MLS Cup Champions, LA Galaxy, said they are the first MLS team to officially launch the Galaxy DeskSite, a new, interactive video app that proactively delivers hours and hours of premium, high-definition video content to fans for free.
The Galaxy DeskSite is a personalized HD video content library constructed to support fans´ growing consumption of online video. Exclusively modeled for the “Big Screen” and essentially a DVR for the Internet, the DeskSite serves as a digital fan hub for HD video, web content and social conversation around the team.
DeskSite enables instantaneous video playback, freeing fans from the buffering, freezing and dropping associated with streaming video on a website. Videos are automatically downloaded and stored directly to users´ devices, allowing fans the ability to view content offline, without an Internet connection. The platform also includes audiovisual alerts, reducing the delay between a video´s initial release and fan access.
Video programming consists of game highlights, postgame recaps, player and coach interviews, and more. There will be more than 95 videos available to fans from day one, and the Galaxy DeskSite will be continuously updated with new, exclusive team-produced content as it becomes available.
In order to provide this immersive fan experience, the Galaxy was the first team in the MLS to partner with DeskSite, a digital media company based in Irvine, Calif.
