Condé Nast and NetroMedia announce partnership

November 20, 2006 9

Che Pinkerton, President of NetroMedia is pleased to announce today that NetroMedia has been chosen to power the interactive streaming media program for the Condé Nast – Fairchild Publication of Women’s Wear Daily. This partnership will enable the publication to expand their client focus through interactive broadband streaming media.

“I am very excited to welcome WWD to NetroMedia,” said Mr. Pinkerton. “Women’s Wear Daily has a loyal audience and we look forward to the opportunity of elevating WWD to the next level of exceeding audience expectations through streaming media.”

In this specific solution, WWD wanted to integrate various social media programming into their online position of Women’s Wear Daily so that content can be integrated into portals like Twitter, Digg and FaceBook.
With this in mind, they came to NetroMedia. Once specific content has been encoded, the media feed is integrated into NetroMedia’s acquisition servers and distribution network which broadcasts the streamed content to broadband, mobile and wireless devices.

“NetroMedia is honored to be chosen to work with Condé Nast – Fairchild Publications,” said Jim Piper, NetroMedia Director of Global Online. “Today, organizations are investigating new avenues to pull client information through innovative inbound content management protocols such as Blogging, RSS feeds, PodCasting, ‘free’ conversion trials and viral video.”
