TransMedia to launch new version of Glide OS

Bidirectionally synchronised file management system to access and manage personal files

By CBR Staff Writer

TransMedia said that it plans to launch a new version of Glide OS on December 7, 2009. It is a web operating system and application suite that wraps desktop functionality around web content from any online location.

The company said that the Glide OS and application suite component can be added directly to the Google Chrome, Explorer, Firefox and Safari web browsers without any need of a specific hardware device.

The company claims the new Glide to layer a file management system and collaboration and productivity application suite on top of search and social networking services that facilitates instant collaboration with web content. The automated web capture, cross-platform file conversion and synchronisation technology transforms the web into a personal hard drive and collaboration platform.

According to Glide, the new version also provides one search box and a bidirectionally synchronised file management system to access and manage personal files on a local desktop, search results and other online content. It also allows users to capture text, images, audio and video content online and automatically transfer web content to local desktop as well as automatically publish files from local desktop to the web.

Donald Leka, chairman and CEO of TransMedia, said: To access Glide, there is no required web destination and there are no restrictions on what browsers can be used or what sites can be visited.

The all new Glide extends your file management system beyond your local and online desktops to the web itself – beyond the limitation of a particular device, browser or even a specific search portal, social network or other website.
