QuickPlay Media, a provider of solutions for the distribution of premium video to portable wireless devices, will acquire a variety of network operations center assets of FLO TV, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qualcomm. As a result of the acquisition, QuickPlay will take over FLO TV’s 30,000-square-foot data and network operations center in San Diego, and will use the facility to manage the capture and distribution of both live and on-demand content for a broad range of IP-enabled devices.

QuickPlay manages more than one million media assets and provides managed services for companies such as AT&T U-verse, SIRIUS XM Radio, Bell Mobility, Motorola Mobility, Rogers Communications, RIM, and Sony Pictures.

QuickPlay’s new San Diego facilities are well-suited to delivering live programming, including special events, to tablets and other IP-enabled devices. QuickPlay will build on its live events experience, which includes powering events such as the Royal Wedding, 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, 2011 Super Bowl and the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
