“We are excited at the prospect of being able to bring the excitement at JVC’s NAB 2009 booth to people around the world not able to attend NAB this year,” stated Dave Walton, assistant vice president, marketing communications, JVC Professional Products Group. “NAB continues to be the most important show in our industry. The webcast allows us to reach many professionals who have never been to NAB. It gives us a chance to put real human faces to our product with demonstrations from our sales and support staff. Viewers will be able to submit questions via e-mail that can be answered right from the show floor.”
The webcast is being produced by TV Worldwide, the industry's first Internet TV Network. “We're pleased to have again been selected to deploy our TV Worldwide Internet TV network to support JVC’s unprecedented ‘On Air. On Time. On Budget’ webcast at NAB 2009,” remarked Dave Gardy, Chairman and CEO of TV Worldwide. “We’ll be using our JVC cameras for the webcast and actually plan to provide one of the case studies for the webcast regarding our work with JVC cameras during the production of PSA’s we produced for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund with actor Tom Selleck and general Colin Powell. We’re expecting a huge crowd on line and we’re provisioning our servers to support this interactive webcast.”
