Vivicast Media and ikonoTV have completed an international distribution agreement designed to expand the reach of ikonoTV’s distinctive view of the world’s finest works of art. The agreement between the companies also gives Vivicast an exclusive opportunity to license ikonoTV’s imminent 4K content.
Vivicast President, Stuart Smitherman said,“Vivicast constantly seeks the most unique and appealing television networks designed for a worldwide audience and ikonoTV is an invaluable addition to our offerings. We also stay on top of next trends so with ikonoTV’s emergent 4K assets, images will seemingly transcend the TV screen as if the viewer is in the same room with exclusive works of art that often can’t be seen anywhere else.”
Elizabeth Markevitch, Founder and CEO of ikonoTV said; “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Vivicast and make the dream of ikonoTV come even more true: bring art to everybody’s home like radio did with music. Art can now be truly experienced as a first “encounter” to the arts on everybody’s TV screen. Our TV sets become living works of art. And regarding our future 4K productions, what can be better than combining the Arts with the latest high-end technology?”
