The pioneer of art-world television on the Internet brings its viewers an upgrade to 16:9, doubling the previous format size

January 25, 2008 -- Since its founding in September, 2005, Vernissage TV--the Internet pioneer in art-world television--has produced, published and archived over 750 episodes about contemporary art, design and architecture. During Art Basel 2007, Vernissage TV recorded 24,000 downloads a day. Since then, the number of viewers and subscribers has reached new heights: in early 2008, the number of downloaded videos from the portal crossed the three million mark.

Now, not only have the number of our viewers grown, but the videos themselves have gotten bigger, too: starting today, Vernissage TV is publishing its episodes in 16:9 format and in a native resolution that is almost double the size of its previous format. The wide-screen format and higher resolution will enable viewers to enjoy the art and ambiance of the art world with significant visual enhancement, while still remaining compatible with iPod, iPhone and other hand-held devices.

The first episode in the new format is the opening of the retrospective of one of the most important artists of our time, German painter Gerhard Richter, at Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden, Germany.
