InterVision Network Corporation announced today the formation of a joint venture with the New York-based tourist attraction the Hip Hop Hall of Fame (HHHOF) that will make IVNET their exclusive technology backbone. IVNET brings HHHOF the ability to directly reach millions upon millions of potential museum visitors and online consumers around the globe. With the ability to have over 25 years worth of digitally re-mastered hip hop content disseminated to user computers, cell phones and internet protocol television outlets, on a world-class multimedia network with unparalleled Digital Rights Management (DRM) HHHOF Founder and CEO J.T. Thompson has found, in IVNET, a partner that will truly take him global.
"The Revolution will be televised and blogged, and the Hip Hop Hall Of Fame will be right there," said creator/producer J.T. "J-Train" Thompson. "This colossal deal with IVNET will change the game. I have already received great feedback from D.J. Quick of the Hip Hop Nation in America when he heard about this project. The Hip Hop Hall of Fame will promote fan participation, community leadership, urban development and user-based ownership, all on a global level."
Thompson continued, "Our multi-media broadcasting, publishing, and global distribution deal with IVNET has given the HHHOF and Hip Hop TV network entertainment brands the ability to tell Big Boys like MTV, BET and the BBC to move over. IVNET's world-class multimedia network levels the playing field on all multi-platforms and off-line businesses by enabling us to put millions upon million of eyeballs on our content. IVNET is also changing how the world interacts with the media and is a tool that empowers the people to bring about positive change.
