performedia international inc.
, one of the world's fastest growing online television providers, today announced the launch of VancouverTV.tv, the first online city television network in the world.
VancouverTV.tv is the essential guide to everything Vancouver whether you are a tourist looking for a great destination or a resident looking for a weekend activity or a venue for an evening out.
"There are thousands of web sites which provide simple but unexciting text descriptions or reviews of attractions, destinations or events," explains Richard Jenkins, performedia's CEO, "but it is very difficult to visualize the experience you will receive when you visit."
performedia has many years of experience in IPTV (online television), streaming media and producing interesting and informative content. VancouverTV.tv is already working with the leading attractions in Vancouver, business organizations focused on increasing Vancouver's business and tourism success and many other hotels, restaurants and retailers looking to reach both local and traveling audiences.
performedia has a studio in downtown Vancouver where they present daily "All About Vancouver" updates including local businesses' press releases, events, restaurant guides and other essential information to plan your day or week.
"The growth of online video as a marketing and information tool is not likely, it's inevitable," explains Richard. "Fast paced lives, mobile devices like phones and iPods and the Vancouver culture of active lifestyles positions VancouverTV.tv as a much needed service. Over the next few years, Vancouver will be in the spotlight and performedia intends to make it shine!"
performedia's VP & Producer, Zachary Williams, is excited by the community performedia has already built. "We live in the most diverse and beautiful city in the world so let's show it. We don't just create commercials, we expose the passion behind the restaurant, the reasons and benefits of events, the many activities and destinations available in Vancouver and many other aspects of living in and visiting BC."
VancouverTV.tv is the title sponsor of the Vancouver AM 30th Year Anniversary Golf Event at the Country Meadows Golf Course on Tuesday, September 12th, 2006.
