San Francisco, CA – December 1, 2008 – Revision3, the TV network for the Internet generation, has been named the winner of the prestigious 2008 Excellence in New Communications Award for “New Media Creation/Social Media Production” in the “Media” category. The award winners were honored at the Society’s November gala at the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, Mass.
The Society for New Communications Research Awards program (http://sncr.org) honors innovative organizations that are pioneering the use of social media, ICT, mobile media, online communities, virtual worlds and collaborative technologies in the areas of media, marketing, public relations, advertising, entertainment, education, politics and social initiatives.
Revision3 was selected as a winning case study for the company’s innovative ability to develop a TV network for the web, creating and producing its own original, broadcast quality shows that changed the face of “television.” Likewise, Revision3 was recognized for the company’s ability to attract a new and passionate audience, and because of its use of social media to partner with multiple distribution platforms and high profile advertisers.
“Our goal at Revision3 is to redefine television around the intersection of social media, entertainment and information,” said Jim Louderback, CEO, Revision3. “This honor is further proof that Revision3 is the clear leader in this new media category.”
“Revision3 is a great example of the successful and innovative use of new communications solutions and social media practices to enhance communications and relationships,” commented Mike Manuel, SNCR Best Practices committee chairman.
