Company Description

RealNetworks, Inc. creates applications and services that make it easier for people to access and enjoy digital media on the devices and platforms they choose to use. We do this in two ways: directly to consumers through our applications and services; and through partnerships with well-established businesses and mobile operators throughout the world. This philosophy and approach reaches back more than 15 years, when RealNetworks first gave the Internet a voice with the first audio streaming solution for the Internet, RealAudio®. Continued innovation led to generations of RealVideo® and what is now known as RealPlayer®, which has now been downloaded more than 100 million times at a continued rate of millions of downloads per week. Today, RealNetworks continues to thrive on providing new ways of delivering high-quality digital entertainment—across an all-embracing range of devices and platforms—as quickly and easily as possible.
