Mosaic Legends, NBC Launch Photo Mosaics for Online Olympic
February 19, 2010
Mosaic Legends announced its alliance with NBC Universal to offer classic Winter Olympic photomosaics that are composed of thousands of past and recent Winter Olympic event photos.
Mosaic Legends, founded in 2005, is an established name in digital media worldwide concentrating on transforming digital resources into profitable products and services for consumers.
Executive Vice President for Mosaic Legends, Jonathan Schweiger, said that the Olympic experience’s spirit is signified in those iconic photos from an extraordinary point in history. He noted the artist Craig Adam who successfully captured the humanity and glory of a lifetime of training and success because of the photos.
Mosaic Legends brought together the mosaic concept and the remarkable capability to animate zooming in and focusing on every tile photo to enable fans to view thousands of photos and complementary text. 1,173 photos made from high definition videos of previous Olympic Games produce the first nine mosaics. The last three mosaics will be produced from the contents of the Vancouver Games, according to a release.
With the digital publishing platform from Mosaic Legends, the application building process is made simpler enabling content creators to enter text, photos, audio and video without difficulty by the use of its web-based interface.
This solution that’s ready for immediate use provides Mosaic Legends with the ability to deliver innovative products to sell in a comparatively short amount of time. Its interactive Photomosaic technology allows content creators to use their multimedia properties and connect their viewers across print, web and mobile applications.
This is Mosaic Legend’s first official push into the sports ground after many successful years with musical artists like the Grateful Dead and David Bowie, and other iconic assets such as The American Museum of Natural History. Mosaic Legend will also be releasing a Muhammad Ali Application in the short coming weeks and more projects that are sports-specific scheduled for release later in 2010.
