    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Adconion Media Group,
 ( the independent global advertising network, today
 announced the launch of its new video content syndication offering, AMG-TV
 which allows creators and studios access to Adconion's massive global
 network of publisher sites, advertiser and agency partners to broadly
 distribute and effectively monetize their premium Web video content.
     Adconion's launch of AMG-TV signals its innovative evolution from the
 traditional ad network model pairing advertisers with publisher sites, to a
 truly global distribution platform designed to monetize all types of
 audience-targeted, multimedia content. For Adconion's ad agency partners,
 AMG-TV provides a scalable branded video solution paired with high-quality
 original content and the ability to optimize campaigns across video,
 display and email. In addition, Adconion will provide advertisers and
 brands with a range of data on the performance of their campaigns and how
 new and existing customers are interacting with their messages.
     Vuguru (, the Emmy(R)-nominated new media studio backed
 by Michael Eisner's The Tornante Company, is the first production studio
 using Adconion's AMG-TV to syndicate its new show Back on Topps beginning
 today. Back on Topps, a hilarious, behind-the-scenes journey into one of
 the world's most recognizable sports companies, will premiere new episodes
 twice weekly online.
     "AMG-TV is a boon to both creators and agencies and brings Adconion
 closer to fulfilling our vision of becoming the largest IPTV network by
 2010," said Tyler Moebius, Founder and CEO, Adconion. "We are breaking the
 stranglehold that YouTube and other video platforms have had on
 professional video creators and giving them broader, global distribution
 and a sales force dedicated to pairing their content with brand advertisers
 for greater monetization opportunities. We are essentially meeting Web
 video's two greatest challenges to date: audience and monetization."
     "The partnership with Adconion's AMG-TV will provide an optimal
 platform for Back on Topps to achieve an instant global footprint through
 Adconion's network of publishers," said Michael Eisner, The Tornante
 Company. "As Vuguru continues to create high-quality
 professionally-produced content for the Internet, it becomes vital to
 develop measurement platforms and distribution models that will help move
 the space forward."
     "AMG-TV offers agencies a one-stop solution that unites hard-to-find
 quality content with massive distribution for instantly scalable video
 campaigns," said Keith Kaplan, President of North America, Adconion. "We
 understand that many of our agency partners - both digital and traditional
 - are not interested in sponsoring user-generated content, and we will
 continue to add premium branded video content that will be syndicated
 across our worldwide network of publishers."
     Adconion's network reaches over 240 million unique users, or nearly
 one-third of the global Internet population, according to comScore.
