CALGARY - November 9, 2007 - Quantum Shift TV (QSTV, http://quantumshift.tv) announced today that CEO Hugo Bonjean will speak at the annual Investors Circle conference in Boston, MA, on Wednesday, November 14. QSTV is one of just 20 companies selected to present, out of over 200 applicants, at this premier gathering of socially responsible investors. The innovative web broadcaster hopes to spur investors' interest in its unique, solution-oriented approach to news and entertainment, as well as its powerful technology platform for citizen journalism and member engagement.
"Responsible businesses, nonprofits and independent producers are hungry for new outlets to share their stories, and new ways to involve their audiences," said Bonjean. "Quantum Shift TV provides a platform that allows media creators to build community among customers and members in new ways, without getting lost in the big video networks."
QSTV offers organizations a comprehensive hosted solution that combines high-quality embeddable video sharing tools with state-of-the-art social networking technology. In addition, QSTV's proprietary contest engine allows organizations to run their own video contests, and weaves puzzle games into the viewing experience, turning audience members from passive consumers into active participants. It also provides new opportunities to draw in and monetize user-generated content.
"The response from the nonprofit and responsible business communities has been phenomenal," said Bonjean. Nearly three-dozen organizations, including UNICEF, CARE, Oxfam, Rainforest Action Network, Earth911.org and the Committee for Children, have signed on as Action Partners in QSTV’s 'Be the Change! Share the Story!' school video contest. The contest challenges youth in grades 1-12 across the US and Canada to pick a social or environmental project to work on this school year, and document it in two short videos uploaded to Quantum Shift TV. The top teams in three age groups will receive $50,000 in cash and prizes for their school.
Research from the prestigious Max Planck Institute in Germany shows that people are far more likely to take positive social and environmental action when they are seen to be doing so. Quantum Shift TV is here to help people and organizations to be the change and share their stories.
