"This system is another piece of the puzzle coming together in the development of 2UP Gaming and will allow us to provide a content rich, interactive broadcast. "The just:play software integrates video, audio and multi-format graphics as well as timeline-based automation to enhance the experience for our users. The real time graphic overlays will allow us to show live betting information as well as content from social media such as Facebook and Twitter. "The QuickTime-based applications produced by ToolsOnAir will provide a live broadcast facility so users from all around the globe can watch and bet on the exciting live games." ToolsOnAir´s director of International Marketing, Gilbert Leb says the company are thrilled to be a part of 2UP´s exciting new venture. "The online gaming community is an exceptionally fast-paced, technology savvy market, and we´re confident that our just: Broadcast Suite will enable 2UP to push that envelope even farther," Mr Leb says. Mr Bentley says the deal with ToolsOnAir is part of a number of partnerships formed to rapidly grow the company´s presence. "Over the past few months we have been negotiating with a number of other companies to create a large network of punters with access to our products. "The software enables us to run a TV station worldwide and put 2UP Gaming on the international gaming and wagering stage," Mr Bentley says. "Through using the latest sophisticated technology in broadcasting we can keep up with the pace of the emerging online gaming environment." The core focus of 2UP Gaming PLC is the coin toss game, a game that is played in most countries around the world where players make a call on whether two coins being tossed in the air will fall as two tails or two heads. A correct call wins. This will be underpinned by other unique and established gaming and wagering options to be released as part of its growth plans.
