London, UK (PRWEB) March 22, 2006
Thanks to the pioneering internet streaming company Opus Media plc, the new Vanessa Redgrave movie Russia/Chechnya: Voices of Dissent will be accessible to millions of viewers worldwide in DVD quality - over the public internet.
Ahead of the media giants, Opus is using video-streaming technology with no buffering and no downloading, delivering a DVD quality experience globally, available at any time, on-demand, with just a normal broadband connection.
With no copy of the movie saved to the computer, there are no piracy issues, your computer’s hard drive remains free from large files, and the movie can be viewed instantly.
Viewers will pay £2 / $3.50 / €3 to watch Voices of Dissent, launched today in the House of Commons. With proceeds going to Amnesty International, Opus is not taking any profit from the project. It can be viewed at http://www.voicesofdissent.com.
The new documentary provides an overview of today’s desperate human rights situation in Chechnya and Russia. It is produced by Vanessa Redgrave and directed by Carlo Nero, and was first screened earlier this month at the 8th Amnesty International Film Festival and at the Geneva Films for Human Rights Festival.
Opus Chief Executive Nigel Regan said: “Broadband TV is the ideal medium for delivering important and bold films such as Voices of Dissent and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with Vanessa and her team to help Amnesty International deliver the project. I am pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate our pioneering technology platform. It is also another key step forward for Opus Media as we continue broadening our business beyond our initial involvement in Bollywood.tv, childrens’ programming and pop music.”
London-based Opus Media was established late last year to distribute a variety of broadband internet TV channels including Bollywood.tv (http://www.bollywood.tv) , skidz.tv (http://www.skidz.tv) and noise.tv (http://www.noise.tv).
