Burlington, MA (PRWEB) June 08, 2015

TomTom announced today their commitment to obstacle racing, one of the fastest growing sports in America, becoming the essential way to train for Reebok Spartan Race. Like the 4.5 million-strong Spartan community, TomTom is continually pushing boundaries and discovering new territory in a fun, bold and adventurous way to help people reach their goals.

Athletes training for obstacle races will have an optimal way of preparing for the physical, mental and cultural journey to becoming the best they can be. TomTom will help participants that wear the TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio GPS Sport Watch to train more effectively.

Obstacle racing is among the fastest-growing sports in American history. Last year, over 2 million courageous people from across the nation dedicated themselves to obstacle events, jumping through fire, crawling through mud, and voluntarily punishing themselves with obstacles, rocks and the unforgiving elements…all in the name of fitness and fun.

“This relationship is a natural fit for TomTom, as we share the belief with Spartan that you can achieve most anything by putting forth the effort,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom, Inc. “TomTom’s GPS Sport Watch provides instant feedback, helping athletes train smarter and harder. Designed to hold athletes accountable to their training, it motivates them to push their limits.”

The TomTom Multi-Sport Cardio makes it easy to train in the optimal heart rate zone, making it an essential training tool for Spartan competitors. Runners can select one of five intensity zones to match their training goals and will receive alerts to know whether they need to speed up or slow down. Runners can see real-time heart rate, distance, pace and other essential running information at a glance, while running.

Reebok Spartan Race, a timed obstacle race series, features courses of incremental length in locations worldwide. With over $ 500,000 in prize purse over the course of the year and a World Championship event, the sport encourages athleticism and adventure for all competitors. As a part of an overall Spartan lifestyle brand, the Spartan Race offers a chance for athletes of every level to challenge themselves to continually grow and improve as individuals.

“TomTom is a world class technology leader, particularly in the fitness space, and we can’t imagine a better partner to work with as we continue to define a new sport,” said Joe De Sena, Founder and CEO of Spartan. “Their innovative technology will help the performance of our race participants, ultimately helping them improve and accomplish their goals, and further progress Spartan Race.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Magellan Holdings, LLC, a leading provider of mobile OTT media delivery solutions, and Crowded Reality Inc, the worlds first crowd-funding platform for reality tv and talk shows, today announced a strategic partnership to stream new talk show Wake Up! “backstage” video content to mobile app users.

OTT delivery of content is now mainstream and quickly becoming the preferred delivery method, especially with recent net neutrality legislation in the U.S. and other countries around the world. OTT media delivery to custom mobiles apps is the new trend in media delivery by creating a unique “station / channel” for content owners. The Magellan OTT platform includes advertising, subscription, and pay-per-view capacities to enable immediate monetization of media content.

The first show to be fully funded, sponsored and distributed off the Crowded Reality platform, the show is hosted by the most beloved experts in Mind, Body, Spirit. Wake Up! is the show for the New Mainstream, providing insight into the answers people really want.

The brainchild of award winning producer Adryenn Ashley, a pioneer in the #SocialTV space, and Lisa Marie, a globally successful entrepreneur with a knack for cracking open new markets, the new multi-platform show app creates deep engagement with the audience though its Backstage Pass application, with more content, interviews, information and community. All the shows on the Crowded Reality platform have a #SocialTV component.

Wake Up! is about creating an atmosphere where the people who are “wondering about” can meet the people who “know about”, inspiring all to start “being about” this new way of making the world a better place, adding their social currency to the power mainstream TV.

“We are creating weekly segments that will highlight topics driven by our social media outreach, answering questions, providing information in a easy going, conversational mobile app format. Magellan’s OTT platform gives the viewing audience with a wealth of new exclusive media content and ability to stream previously aired weekly segments, and engage as a community, among a host of other features,” said Adryenn Ashley, CEO of 21st Century Pictures Group.

“Crowded Reality fully understands the future of media delivery over OTT and the importance to have a custom mobile app for content owners to maximize brand and financial upside. Due to our platform approach, each successful TV series on the platform can be quickly and at low cost configured to custom native mobile apps for a true ‘station / channel’ user experience,” said Greg McGregor CEO of Magellan.

About Magellan Holdings, LLC

Magellan ( is a San Francisco based software development company with significant experience in developing software to meet the most challenging applications. From a mobile industry perspective, Magellan’s experience developing software applications for mobile network operator (MNO) infrastructure has span from 1G-AMPS, 2G-GSM-CDMA-TDMA, 3G-UMTS, and 4G-LTE.

Over the past 20 years, Magellan Holdings, LLC and its core team (Magellan) has patented (in most cases) and developed such innovated products as BT Cellnet’s original Pay & Go, iBEAM’s video streaming platform, QoS / QoE solutions for 3G / 4G LTE for Hutchison Whampao (3), CDNs for Loral Space Systems’ satellite networks, advanced computer vision for retail auditing, object recognition technology with advertising applications, and data migration tools utilized by Workday and Google, among other large enterprises around the world.

About Crowded Reality Inc., the niche crowdfunding platform, created by award winning producer Adryenn Ashley, offers show creators three ways to fund their show, through a system designed to reveal the reach of new shows, and to incite competition for the opportunity to sponsor or air each show. With algorithmic triggers that alert pre-screened and “vetted” sponsors, the site interacts with and introduces show-specific sponsors even before the funding cycle is complete.

Using a factor called Social Currency, tied to proprietary back end tools, can calculate the reach and value to a sponsor and the demographic most interested in a show. This feature encourages sponsors to take action and secure their position with the show to leverage the social currency the show has built and gives potential sponsors the certainty they are looking for when choosing where to invest their marketing dollars, while leaving creative control in the hands of the show creators. Crowded Reality lets independent producers prove the viability of their reality TV and talk show concepts by crowd-funding the pilot, and using social currency, unlock access to sponsors and nationwide distribution.

In less than 100 days Crowded Reality has proven the concept, by fully funding one pilot, gaining $ 100K in sponsorship for talk show Wake Up!, and signing 2 shows into nationwide distribution. With over 11K+ visitors and garnering over 2.5M in social currency, Crowded Reality fulfills a gap in the marketplace between the command and control studio system and the new media makers who long for broadcast access.
