Mitch Lowe Joins FlixChip Corp. Board of Advisors Sep 23, 2014 12:20AM

Netflix Co-Founder and Former COO and President of Redbox Joins FlixChip Corp. Board of Advisors

Groundbreaking Entertainment Executive Lends Extensive Industry Experience, Expertise and Relationships to Entertainment Media Startup FlixChip Corp.

CHICO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FlixChip Corp., the developer of a pioneering entertainment media ecosystem designed specifically for use with smartphones, tablets and computers, announced today that Mitch Lowe, co-founder of Netflix and former COO and president of Redbox, has joined the Company’s Board of Advisors. Mr. Lowe will leverage his deep knowledge of the entertainment industry and personal experience successfully launching game changing entertainment companies to provide guidance to the FlixChip Corp. executive management team in the areas of corporate strategy, content licensing, distribution and capitalization.

“As one of the founders of Netflix and a former senior executive at Redbox, Mitch is able to add tremendous value to FlixChip Corp. as we prepare to launch our entertainment media ecosystem for mobile devices,” said John Strisower, Founder, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of FlixChip Corp. “Mitch has been integral to the creation of two of the most dominant entertainment retailers in the industry. His participation on our Board of Advisors is incredibly confidence inspiring to our studio, retail and strategic partners, as well as to current and potential investors. We intend to take full advantage of the benefit of Mitch’s vast knowledge of the space as we raise capital, launch our products, and grow our business. Mitch understands the limitations of physical media, such as DVD and Blu-ray, and digital delivery, such as download and stream, when it comes to mobile devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops, so he sees the value in a media platform designed specifically to enable consumers to effortlessly watch entertainment content on their device when they’re on the go.”

“As the proliferation of mobile devices continues, consumers are increasingly reliant on them for entertainment content. DVDs and Blu-rays simply aren’t compatible with today’s mobile devices, and downloading and streaming only afford a satisfying experience when a high speed network is readily available. It’s surprisingly and frustratingly difficult to simply watch a movie on your smartphone, tablet or laptop when you’re outside of your home or office,” commented Mr. Lowe. “FlixChip Corp. has solved for all of these challenges by creating a new media that isn’t reliant on a high speed internet connection, and eliminates the time and planning it takes to manage storage space on multiple mobile devices. I think that FlixChip Corp. has the potential to change the way the world watches movies, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

About FlixChip Corp.

FlixChip Corp. ( has created the first global, solid-state entertainment media specifically designed for use with the 1.5 billion mobile devices in the world. This proprietary and disruptive innovation is called MuviChip™, and it enables consumers to watch entertainment on their mobile devices without downloading, streaming, or managing storage space.

School Safety Crisis Management System Prepared Response Logs over 50,000 Drills, Events and Incidents Sep 23, 2014 12:09AM

(PRWEB) September 22, 2014

Prepared Response's (PRI), Rapid Responder emergency preparedness and crisis management system is now deployed in over 12,000 school campus buildings across the country, giving local first responders and school staff access to critical site information for increased student safety and security. Rapid Responder entered the market in 2000, and has shown continued school building deployment of 20% annually over the last 6 years.

Rapid Responder also provides a secure web-based incident management module to track, document, report and evaluate safety drills performed by schools, empowering districts to increase their campus safety. Prepared Response customers increased their safety drill reporting activity in Rapid Responder by 40% in the last five years and more than 25%, in the last year, logging over 54,000 drills through the NIMS (National Incident Management System) based incident command module. The increased drill and training activity by Rapid Responder customers point to an amplified focus on emergency response and preparedness.

"The dramatic increase on drill reporting reflects an obvious increased focus on safety planning by our customers," says PRI CEO Jim Finnell. "Prepared Response is proud to play a role in increasing safety and security of students, educators and other school staff across the country."

In the event of an emergency, first responders and school officials need instant access to detailed campus information for improved response capabilities. Schools using Rapid Responder are able to provide police, fire and other first responders with secure and instant access to critical site specific information including floor plans, aerial imagery, emergency plans, live camera feeds and other key information needed during a crisis. The situational awareness tool provides responders and school stakeholders the ability to effectively prepare for, respond to and recover from any emergency.

Rapid Responder has been used successfully during a campus shooting, bomb threats, lock downs and other emergency situations on school campuses and other sites across the country. The system is deployed in 27 states across the nation, more than any other system of its kind.
