Have you ever had one of those nights when you just wanna stay home and
chill on the couch, but you don't wanna miss out on all the action
at the club? Well now there is a way you can have your cake and eat it
too! Web TV channel's new b@TV has established itself as your new portal to the world of virtual
vicarious clubbing, free and direct to your living room (minus the
overpriced drinks, you still have to get those at the club).
In addition to live broadcasts, podcasts and downloads available on the
site, video-tagging technology also allows people at the club to
personalize content and share their clubbing experience with their
friends via Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc.
and share their own videos, music and photos, providing a platform
where up-and-coming acts can broadcast themselves to the community
--and they'll certainly be giving Myspace a run for its money in that
regard. When this community takes off it could very well become the
social hub for worldwide electronic music enthusiasts online.
This summer B@TV will be broadcasting from major international
events including the Ibiza opening parties, Creamfields, Love Parade,
Exit Festival, Queensday and Global Gathering. Four camera angles get
right into the action, providing a 360 degree clubbing experience with
all the festival atmosphere, minus the mud. So if the recession has
hindered your travel plans to the summer's big festivals, now you can
experience them from the comfort of your home.
You can sign up for Be At TV at www.be-at.tv and check out a number of videos from this past WMC -- the Tool Room Knights party at Space, Steve Lawler at the DJ mag party at the Shelborne, and Juice Beach at Nikki Beach, among others.
