Mosaic Legends launches 12 interactive photo mosaics for NBC Universal’s online Olympic coverage
Iconic Winter Olympic Sports Photomosaics Include Thousands of Classic Olympic Moments And Images From The Vancouver Games For Fans To Interact Online
New York, NY, February 19, 2010 /PN/ Mosaic Legends, LLC, one of the world’s premier digital media companies focused on turning digital assets into marketable consumer products and services, recently launched a partnership with NBC Universal, delivering classic Winter Olympic photomosaics made up of thousands of photos from past and current Winter Olympic events. Presented by Toyota, the applications are available at www.nbcolympics.com/photos/mosaics.html.
“The essence of the Olympic experience is represented in those iconic images from a unique point in time,” said Jonathan Schweiger, Mosaic Legends’ Executive Vice President. “Through the images, artist Craig Adam has been able to capture the glory and humanity of a lifetime of success and training.”
Mosaic Legends has combined the mosaic concept with the amazing ability to animate zooming in and focus on each tile photo so that fans can literally view thousands of images and accompanying text. The first nine mosaics are made from 1,173 images that were created from high definition video of past Olympic Games. The final three mosaics will be produced using content from the Vancouver Games over the next two weeks.
Mosaic Legends' digital publishing platform simplifies the App building process and allows content creators to easily enter photographs, text, audio and video through its web-based interface. This turnkey solution gives Mosaic Legends the ability to bring new products to market in a relatively short period of time. This is the first formal push for the company into the sports arena after several years of success with musical artists such as David Bowie and The Grateful Dead and other iconic properties like The American Museum of Natural History. The company will also be launching a Muhammad Ali App in the coming weeks, with more sports-specific projects planned for later this year.
