Pixelon.com Launches Full-screen, Full-Motion Video

Pixelon Inc. is planning a Friday launch for its new Web site which will feature 10 distinct channels of programming, including several new programming formats never before seen, such as TV "mini-runs," video talk shows and Internet informercials.

Pixelon.com's programming at launch will feature channels featuring both video on demand and live event programming, all broadcast in a proprietary full-screen, full-motion, TV-quality format.

"With Pixelon.com, we have designed programming for the medium of the Internet, unlike other online broadcasters," said Pixelon Inc. Chairman and Founder Michael Fenne.

"What does that mean? We are delivering short, visually compelling, well-produced programming, which is what the Internet audience says it wants. Through our programming, Pixelon.com will refresh, stimulate, educate and entertain the viewer, with programming delivered at any time the viewer chooses. We deliver what you want, when you want it, the way you want it."

Pixelon.com will bring live events to the Internet, to be viewed from a choice of camera locations to suit each viewer. Kicking off tomorrow at 2 p.m. PST, the network's first streaming Webcast will be the iBASH `99 concert from the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Held to commemorate the launch of Pixelon.com, iBASH `99 will feature a reunion of The Who, Dixie Chicks, KISS, Faith Hill, The Offspring, LeAnn Rimes, Tony Bennett and the Brian Setzer Orchestra, co-hosted by David Spade and Cindy Margolis. Other upcoming live events scheduled for Pixelon.com will include the Republican Presidential campaign and other political events through an agreement with the Republican National Committee.
