SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — VisualOn Inc., a multimedia software company that enables high-quality video and audio playback across connected devices, announced that CJ E&M’s mobile application – VINGO Player, is now powered by OnStream MediaPlayer+.

"Global consumers are adopting connected devices at an unprecedented rate and our solution is gaining worldwide traction," said Andy Lin, CEO of VisualOn. "As Korea’s leading media content provider, CJ E&M is now well-positioned to deliver high-quality media to the masses. We are proud to be solving the fragmentation challenges that exist within the mobile device ecosystem."
