Voom, Mega Media & MDA fuel new HD co-productions
















MUMBAI: VOOM HD Networks, Singapore‘s Mega Media and the Media Development Authority of Singapore continue to develop high definition projects resulting from the companies‘ landmark HD co production agreement inked in late 2005.


The trio announced two new HD projects encompassing the action sports and documentary genres. The announcement was made jointly by VOOM HD Networks GM Greg Moyer; Singapore‘s Mega Media MD Jonathan Foo and MDA CEO Dr Christopher Chia.

 

Metro BMX Jam: Singapore (2 x 60‘) - This series covers the adrenaline charged Metro BMX Jam competition in its first ever trip to Singapore. Envisioned by six time World Champion and nine-time X Games medal winner Jay Miron, Metro BMX Jam: Singapore features more than 40 of the best international athletes including BMX superstars Dave Mirra and Ryan Nyquist competing in high-definition. BMX is a form of competitive cycling involving jumps and freestyle tricks.


BMX P.I.G.: Singapore (7 x 60‘) - In this event for Asia, top-ranking international athletes compete in a friendly, yet intense game of BMX P.I.G., where the classic school yard game of P.I.G. is combined with the high octane action of the BMX sport, matching the world‘s premier BMX riders in a pulse pounding contest of one-ups and elimination. This series part documentary and part reality show will give viewers a chance to watch the athletes as they talk about tricks, debate strategy, and do a little old-fashioned trash talking.
Metro BMX Jam: Singapore and BMX P.I.G.: Singapore, will premiere on VOOM HD Networks‘ RUSH HD channel and will also air on Singapore‘s brand-new HD Channel, SLING HD, coming soon to SingTel.

 
The trio‘s HD co-production agreement, originating at MIPCOM 2005, has already created a number of successful HD programs, including the fashion reality series Style Me with Rachel Hunter, stylish travel documentaries Ultra Eye Tokyo and Ultra Eye Singapore and sports documentaries Beyond the Edge - The F1 Powerboat; Muds, Guts and Glory; Planet Pakour and Hope on the Andaman Coast. Also currently in production is an eight-part documentary series, New Revolution, about the world of computer gaming, which is being shot across Asia in China, Singapore, Vietnam, Korea, Japan and Malaysia.

The two newest high definition projects are produced in 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, with completion and delivery marked for fourth quarter 2007 and first Quarter 2008.
