Media Advisory: 2009 mtvU "Woodie Awards" to Provide Fans With Exclusive Access to Onstage and Offstage Antics in IM LIVE 360-Degree Videos Starting This Friday on MTV Website

Videos Provide "Insider-Access" to Alternative Music's Annual Celebration, Including Keg-Stands, Stage-Dives, Nearly Naked Dancers and Lots of Surprises

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 3, 2009) - Imagine being able to "enter" the 2009 mtvU Woodie Awards and look up, down, and all around as The Dead Weather, Death Cab for Cutie, Passion Pit, Matt and Kim, and others perform onstage. Starting at 11:00 p.m. ET this Friday, December 4th, MTV will give fans of indie and alternative music exclusive access inside the Woodies when it releases interactive, 360-degree Woodies web videos that enable music fans to experience all the action, on stage and off, just as if they had an all-access pass.

Following MTV's television broadcast of the awards at 10:00 p.m. on December 4, 2009, fans can access the 360-degree videos at woodies.mtv.com to take a closer look at all of the killer performances and crazy moments, from an army of hipsters on bikes escorting Matt and Kim into the venue to kick off the first performance to 3OH!3 presenting an award in Lady Gaga-inspired drag. Using new IM LIVE technology created by Immersive Media, the videos let fans see everything that happens and control what they see. With a simple click and drag of a computer mouse, each viewer can independently control his or her own point of view, looking sideways, up or down, or all around, zooming in or out of the action.

The TV broadcast of the Woodie Awards will air on the MTV, MTV2 and mtvU and Palladia networks at 10:00 p.m. ET on December 4th, and be available online via the 360-degree videos at woodies.mtv.com starting at 11:00 p.m. ET. It is the marquee event for the mtvU channel, which is syndicated to over 750 colleges and universities.

IM LIVE places online audiences in the middle of a live event and gives them full control over their viewing experience. To learn more, visit www.immersivemedia.com
