NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - For the fourth annual Internet Week New York, Magnify.net has created a unique video aggregation platform that can be found at http://video.internetweekny.com.
Steve Marchese, Executive Producer of Internet Week New York, said that inviting user-created video was core to expanding the way the community can participate in Internet Week New York. "We see our audience as very much part of the voice of Internet Week New York," said Marchese. "We know they're excited to create video at many of our over 350 events, and we want them to know we welcome their submissions."
"We wanted to be able to search the web in real time for videos tagged Internet Week New York, and to give creators the tools to upload and share video. Magnify.net has been leading the trend that embraces both Creation and Curation, and we are excited to have them as a media sponsor and technology provider," said Marchese.
"We think Internet Week New York Rocks!" said Magnify.net CEO Steven Rosenbaum. "It's a robust, diverse, growing event that just begs for video aggregation and curation." Rosenbaum said in announcing that the festival's organizers have partnered with Magnify.net to gather, filter, and curate breaking Internet Week video from across the web and provide to web viewers in real time.
The Magnify Platform will allow Internet Week New York to search video sources for relevant content to add to the Internet Week New York channel, provide its readers the opportunity to rate and share videos, and join the Internet Week New York social networking community. These features will create a more dynamic experience and promote Internet Week New York position as an ever-growing New York institution.
"This is an important partnership," said Magnify.net CEO Steven Rosenbaum. "As the noise on the web continues to grow, we're seeing algorithmic content sorting break down.
