WESTERVILLE, OH The Guitammer Company (OTCQB: GTMM), the worldwide leader in haptic-tactile broadcast technology and creator of the award-winning ButtKicker®-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide a uniquely immersive entertainment experience, is pleased to announce that President Mark A. Luden will be presenting at the European Broadcasting Union’s (EBU) Production Technology Seminar on Tuesday 24 January in Geneva, Switzerland. Mr. Luden’s presentation, titled “Haptic Tactile Essence in Live Broadcast Production” will discuss Guitammer’s patented haptic-tactile broadcast technology, its incorporation into broadcast production, and how it enhances the consumer viewing experience. As part of the programmes’ “Session 1: Latest Trends In Content Production” his presentation will touch on lessons learned from Guitammer’s two live haptic broadcast pilots: the National Hot Rod Association(NHRA) on ESPN2 and the NHL’s San Jose Sharks on Comcast SportsNet CA.
“The coming advent of ASTC 3.0, proliferation of UHDTVs, growing consumer interest in more immersive experiences such as VR, and increasing interest in haptics as part of an immersive entertainment experience all point to a growing need for broadcasters and content owners to deliver the real time “feeling” or “impact” of a live sporting event to the viewer at home and most importantly be able to monetize the experience. The benefits of adding of haptics to live broadcast events is readily felt by the consumer at home and is quickly understood as a desirable enhancement by the target audience.” according to Mr. Luden.
