InterVU, MatchLogic Plan "Rich Media" Seminars

InterVU Inc. and MatchLogic Inc., the co-developers of trueVU, a shopping solution for delivering rich media in online advertising, will host a series of seminars called "Rich Media Day."

The seminars target advertising and new media professionals and will explore and demonstrate strategies, benefits and techniques for using online advertising that incorporates rich graphics, video and sound to increase the return on advertising investment.

Studies show that integrating rich media into an ad banner significantly increases the ad's recall and click through rates, and also greatly influences brand awareness, purchase interest and intent, the companies said.

Three one-day "Rich Media Day" seminars will be held for advertisers, ad agencies and Web publishers.

Sponsors and participating developers include Intel, Macromedia, Silicon Graphics' Cosmo Software, Unicast Communications, Advertising Age and Creativity magazines and ChannelSeven.com

Each day-long seminar will begin with an overview of rich media, trueVU, and participating developers' technologies. The afternoon breakout sessions will focus on strategies for using rich media; practical and profitable ways to integrate and implement leading-edge advertising applications from participating developers; and methods for reporting, tracking, and measuring return on advertising investment.

Seminar Dates and Locations: May 29 New York, Grand Hyatt; June 18 San Francisco, San Francisco Marriott; June 25 Chicago, Ramada Congress Hotel.
