The initial focus will be to ascertain the feasibility of using NanoTech’s UltraFlix platform to stream content in conjunction with Akyumen’s projection technologies and devices. The strategic collaboration will begin immediately with the goal of streaming content via UltraFlix/Akyumen worldwide.
“We are delighted to work with an innovative company such as Akyumen,” stated Jeff Foley, chairman and CEO of NanoTech. “We are looking forward to global opportunities in the ever-growing mobile market.”

The average amount of time people spent consuming online video each day increased by 23.3% in 2015 and is forecasted a further 19.8% in 2016, according to the Online Video Forecasts, a new report by ZenithOptimedia in conjunction with Newcast, ZenithOptimedia Group’s global branded content network.
This growth in video consumption is being driven by the rapid rise of smartphone and tablet penetration across the globe, together with the resulting changes in consumer behaviour. Video consumption on mobile devices (such as smartphones and tablets) grew by 43.9% in 2015 and forecasted 34.8% in 2016.
ZenithOptimedia expects mobile to become the main platform for viewing online video next year. In 2012 mobile devices accounted for 22.9% of time spent watching online video worldwide. By 2014, this proportion had risen to 40.1%, and we expect it to reach 52.7% in 2016 and 58.1% in 2017.
