San Francisco, CA (March 20, 2008) —Revision3, the TV network for the internet generation, has teamed with the popular Miro internet TV platform to launch a Revision3 branded open-source desktop video player, available at URLTK. The new player gives viewers direct desktop access to their favorite high-quality Revision3 programming, including “Tekzilla,” “The Totally Rad Show” and “Diggnation.” To download the player, please visit http://www.revision3.com/content/miro.
“Revision3 produces high-quality, original programming that connects our audiences to the topics they are passionate about—such as technology, modern culture and music,” said Damon Berger, Director, Business Development, Revision3. “New shows are available all the time. Our co-branded Miro player makes it easier for our community to automatically download their favorite shows directly to their desktop, just click on the Revision3 player icon and watch.”
Miro co-branded players enable organizations to give their users a high definition desktop video experience without the complexity of developing their own desktop software.

“The new Revision3 Miro player creates a unified HD desktop experience for Revision3 fans.

Revision3 is the first media company that gets it, born from the Internet, on-demand generation. Unlike aggregators, mash-ups, and user-generated video sites, Revision3 is an actual TV network for the web, creating and producing its own original, broadcast quality shows.
The company was founded in 2005 by technology visionaries Kevin Rose, Jay Adelson and David Prager, because they couldn’t find anything they wanted to watch on traditional television, and is now led by Internet TV pioneer Jim Louderback.
The content is designed for a new audience: passionate committed fans, who want to watch shows that entertain, educate and help expand their life experiences. The audience expects professionally produced programming but wants it to be unexpected, edgy, smart and real. They also want to watch shows whenever they want, wherever they are, and on whatever device they choose, including everything from a 70″ HDTV to an iPod or Cell phone. Revision3 covers technology, comedy, modern culture, music and more. Our hosts don’t come from Hollywood. Instead, they come from the same passionate fan base as our audience. They are engaging, personal, smart and connected – experts with the insight and acceptance that naturally puts them at the center of the community.
Miro is a new, open platform for internet TV that lets people watch a broad range of free internet TV channels and play virtually any Internet video, from one place. Miro is open so that anyone is free to broadcast their own content over the platform, laying the groundwork for a new kind of TV where viewers have unlimited choices of what to watch and where everyone has a voice.
Miro is developed by the Participatory Culture Foundation, a non-profit organization based in Worcester, MA that is committed to delivering the shared benefits of open technology.
