LAS VEGAS, March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Players Network (PNTV.BB), a New Media and Entertainment Company focused on building Digital Lifestyle Networks, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with the Illusion Factory to develop both the User Interface and User Experience for the company's next-generation, proprietary, broadband-based content distribution and social media platform.
PNTV is in the final stage of completing its Enterprise Platform developed by Assent Solutions, and has chosen the Illusion Factory to develop the dynamic User Experience that will allow the company to monetize its new Platform, while simultaneously providing an engrossing, interactive experience for its users/members.
PNTV's Enterprise Platform is based on a cutting edge business model that incorporates forecasted consumer trends and intuitive usability. This next-generation software and interface design allows content to be monetized through multiple methods including subscription, merchandising, micro-transactions, services and targeted advertising.
Mark Bradley, CEO of PNTV states, "We are thrilled to be working with the creative team at the Illusion Factory. They are without a doubt one of the top media design firms in the business, with clients like Warner Bros., The CW Television Network, and now Players Network. I'd say that puts us in very good company. Players may not be as big as Warner Bros. or The CW yet, but when users visit our new "Vegas On Demand" online platform, they'll have an interactive experience as exciting as visiting Vegas itself. The Illusion Factory has not only met the challenge of making all that and more possible, they have exceeded our wildest expectations."
"The Illusion Factory is regularly engaged to create new methods of OTT distribution of digital content. Of the various platforms that we have evaluated, we are most excited about Players Network. Their content is strong, their distribution method is on target and their new platform is very robust. Vegas on Demand TV is a winner," shares Brian Weiner, CEO of The Illusion Factory.
