Dolby’s “At the Labs” Event at The Dolby NY Labs -2014

Since the 1960s, Dolby Laboratories has been a leader in audio innovation. Beginning with Dolby® noise reduction, a form of audio compression and expansion that reduces background hiss in tape recording, Dolby Laboratories has developed many groundbreaking technologies, advancing the science of audio reproduction.

Early on, Dolby decided that the company would manufacture professional audio products only, and license technologies that were appropriate for consumer applications. Since then, many Dolby innovations have set the bar for entertainment technology in both the professional and consumer markets.

From the cinema to your living room, Dolby has transformed the entertainment experience. Today, Dolby technologies can be found in cinemas, professional recording studios, video games, laser discs, DVDs, mobile media, digital broadcast TV, digital cable, and satellite systems.

World Liberty TV, Team was on Hand at the NYC Dolby at the Labs, see these new products  debuting very shortly .

The premiere of BroadwayHD’s production of Romeo and Juliet starring Orlando Bloom (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Romeo and Condola Rashad (Smash, Sex and the City 2) as Juliet was held in NYC on Tuesday night. The standing room only crowd was mesmerized by this beautiful screen version of the Broadway play. The country’s leading alternative content provider, Screenvision,  and newly formed company BroadwayHD are screening the production for an exclusive run in movie theatres from February 13-19.

 The stunningly modern stage production received acclaimed-reviews, including this from the New York Times: “Mr Bloom in a first-rate Broadway debut and the gifted Rashad exude a too fine for this world purity that makes their characters’ love feel sacred.” In addition to Bloom and Rashad, the cast includes Christian Camargo (The Hurt Locker, Dexter), Justin Guarini (American Idol, American Idiot), Tony Award winners Brent Carver (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Sleepy Hollow), Chuck Cooper (Law & Order, American Gangster), and two-time nominee Jayne Houdyshell (Follies). Romeo and Juliet was captured for cinema on November 27 at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre by the multiple, Emmy award-winning Don Roy King (Saturday Night Live).

 BroadwayHD, a new company created by the show’s Tony-award winning producers Stewart F. Lane and Bonnie Comley, Romeo and Juliet will have broad distribution throughout the United States and Canada with multiple exhibitions. With a combined seven Tony Awards, Olivier Awards, and Drama Desk Awards,Lane and Comley are once again venturing to bring the power of the theater to the cinema. Lane and Comley have also produced stage to screen productions of Company (Raoul Esparza), Cyrano (with Kevin Kline), Sondheim! The Birthday Concert, Company (with Neil Patrick Harris). Additional stage to screen productions the couple have been involved with include The Will Rogers Follies (1991), Grease (2006), and Legally Blonde (2007).

 “Broadway is an art that we believe everyone should experience, and now with BroadwayHD we are committed to making that possible” said Lane, producer, co-founder of BroadwayHD. “Romeo and Juliet will be the first show of many available for movie theatres and other ancillary formats.”

“Screenvision shares our belief that Broadway shows, especially limited runs like Romeo and Juliet with Orlando Bloom, should be accessible to all theater lovers. Through Screenvision’s  vast network of exhibitor partners more people nationwide will have the opportunity to enjoy this classic love story time for Valentine’s Day,” said Comley, producer, co-founder of BroadwayHD.

NY NOW , (formerly NYIGF®) at NY Javit Center and Pier 94 ( Feb 2014)

Quality was the key measure of success for companies participating in the winter debut of NY NOW™, the Market for Home + Lifestyle (formerly NYIGF®), February 1-6, 2014. Many exhibitors among the market’s total 2,500 reported strong order writing, most notably from new accounts and large retailers, despite two winter storms and the overlap of the 2014 Super Bowl.

“NY NOW had several very strong days of attendance – particularly on Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday – and buyers who made it to New York City and to the Market were here to shop,” said Christian Falkenberg, NY NOW director and GLM senior vice president. “Exhibitors reported seeing their key accounts and making new connections with both domestic and international buyers.”

NY NOW attendees represented all 50 states and 74 countries, with Canada, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Australia, and the United Kingdom representing the top sources of international visitors. “A lot of international buyers stopped by, and we expanded many connections, not just with the USA, but with the world,” noted first time HANDMADE Designer Maker exhibitor Dominik Kowalik of Dominik Woods. “We are from the west coast and wanted to connect more with the east coast. It’s been really positive.”

Many exhibitors experienced specific days of strong order-writing from quality accounts, which resulted in overall success for the week. “This show has been absolutely fantastic for us,” said HOME Collection exhibitor Kathryn McCoy of Kathryn McCoy Design. “We worked with over 80 stores on Sunday, and Tuesday was non-stop.  This show is tremendous for our business.”

NY NOW LIFESTYLE exhibitor Rachel Clapp of Harry Barker, agreed, “We’ve had a lot of traffic despite the weather. We’ve seen our current customer base as well as new customers and also few international buyers.  It has been a good mix.”

A five-day schedule of educational and social programming supplemented market activities, with more than 40 educational sessions, industry social events, product awards and feature displays. The seminar series, sponsored by industry publications and associations, covered topics such as design and color trends, social media and online marketing, merchandising and retail strategies, and importing. Industry events included the Gift For Life 22nd Anniversary “Party for Life” Fundraiser, the 2014 Housewares Design Awards Gala & Ceremony, and a NY NOW “Night On Broadway,” featuring MOTOWN THE MUSICAL.

Market activities also included recognition of innovative product design through category-specific award programs, including the Baby + Child, Gourmet Housewares, Home Textiles and Personal Care + Wellness Best New Product Awards.  During the Market “People’s Choice” online balloting determined The Savora Colander by Lifetime Brands as Best of HOME, and the Spherovelo By Vici Enterprises as Best of LIFESTYLE. 


World Liberty TV, Team was on hand to cover new products on the market, as well as conduct vendor interviews, see the new products and what the vendors had to say about them.

Toshiba Super Bowl Gifting suite event in NYC -2014

tay-bandz is a  501 (C)  3 non-profit  organization  dedicated to raising awareness and funding research for pediatric cancer. tay-bandz was founded by Taylor  Matthews who, at age 11, was diagnosed with cancer. Taylor always believed that individuals could make a difference through private efforts. Her dearest hope was that  “someday no child would ever have to face cancer.”

 tay-bandz is  a “kids helping kids” organization driven by community based efforts.

 The Federal government provides minimal funding for children’s cancer. Children are not politically powerful, don’t pay taxes and don’t march on the lawn of the White House.

 If a difference is to be made in the lives of these children, it will be made by those who dedicate themselves to speaking for them. Without public outcry, these children don’t stand a chance. Taylor knew this first hand and was determined to change it.

 World Liberty TV, had the pleasure of interviewing Mrs  Sue Matthews ,Founder and Executive Director of tay-bandz  and the great work they do for society, at the Toshiba Super Bowl Gifting suite event in NYC -2014
