“There is a massive opportunity for QuickPlay’s cloud-based multiscreen services in Asia and we are excited to establish a home base for the region in Singapore,” said Wayne Purboo, President and CEO of QuickPlay Media. “With more than 50 percent* of global multiscreen TV service subscribers, Asia is becoming an increasingly important market for our services. With a proven and seasoned leader like Tash driving our efforts in the region, we look forward to reaching new global milestones for QuickPlay in the coming months and years.”

QuickPlay is poised to take advantage of these market dynamics and I look forward to playing a key role in the continued success of the company as the adoption of multiscreen services continues to skyrocket.”
