TransMedia will unveil the second-generation Glide platform. Glide is a hybrid synchronized local, online, and mobile desktop that is device, network, platform, and format neutral and fully integrated to provide access from any one Glide application to another. The Glide Operating System is rights and identity based, designed to create a secure personal and social environment to protect content and the right to privacy.
The new Glide features a redesigned user interface, increased user storage capacity, and a streamlined registration process.
