Technology Industry “Gets It” with State Wide Community-Focused Internet TV Portal
TAG TV at features originally produced Technology Association of Georgia live and on-demand events and programs, weekly audio broadcasts, a unique selection of technology-industry focused videos as well as text and video RSS feeds as a state wide technology media portal for business professionals.  A collaborative between the Technology Association of Georgia and Globalspeak, TAG TV offers a diverse selection of programs, including
•    once a year hours-long segmented video event specials such as the Georgia Technology Summit,
•    TAG Society event video presentations such as the FinTech summit,
•    twice weekly 15 minute Tech Talk Radio shows hosted by TAG President Tino Mantella interviewing Georgia’s technology thought leaders from such companies as Google, AT&T, The Weather Channel and more,
•    a daily show (usually 3-10 minutes) on WebVisions featuring hard to find technology news and information-related YouTube videos each week day, Monday through Friday. 

Plus, utilizing RSS feeds from technology experts around the World Wide Web, the TAG TV portal also is constantly fed other technology-related text and video content, featuring popular shows such as Wired and CNET daily feed articles and video content from ABC, Reuters and Teckzilla News for online technology news and information viewing – all on one focused state wide portal. 

“Georgia’s technology industry gets it,” states Technology Association of Georgia President Tino Mantella, “and the response both in positive comments and audience has been far greater than we ever anticipated.”  He continues, “a daily dose of WebVisions and current new localized TAG TV programming keeps Georgia’s business community interested in technology -- which drives everything -- up to date!”  Additional TAG online TV and radio content will expand rapidly with fast track implementation of regular programming from an exclusive relationship with the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) and its 31 TAG Societies.  Along with the primary home network portal web site, a virtual state wide affiliate network will be offered individual audio and video channels on the TAG TV network portal and also to chambers and economic development-related agencies for feeding news and information into TAG TV portal.        
State wide virtual networking capabilities are planned for the future, through a Community section where technology professionals can create extensive company and personal identities for sharing and searching, will include text and peer-to-peer audio and video.  Soon, any technology professional anywhere in Georgia will be able to find the right contact in the TAG TV Community.
The ultimate on-demand virtual networking tool, live face-to-face Internet-based conferencing using Web cams in an online conference room, will be available soon for instant meeting, greeting and collaboration.  Whether in Savannah, Augusta, Columbus, Athens, Dalton or Atlanta, technology professionals will be connected and informed using TAG TV’s best of breed and advanced Web 2.0 tools.  For even more… stay tuned!
TAG and the Globalspeak Connection = TAG TV

TAG TV is a managed media multi channel provided by Globalspeak.  Globalspeak’s FuzeEditor content management system for creating media channels uses open source technology to construct the customizable digital distribution platform for presenting video, audio and text news and information to a target audience.  FuzeEditor offers powerful content integration and repurposing capabilities within a 100% reliable and secure hosted infrastructure while Globalspeak performs all platform content updates and maintenance.  The client, the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), enjoys the benefits of providing the service of up-to-the-minute news and information to its members and visitors as well as the helpful products and services from advertisers while also being identified as a thought leader in the technology industry.


According the Fast Company magazine, thought leadership can be as valuable to a brand as the products and services it sells.  Among Fast Company’s golden rules of company thought leadership are: give it away freely to the audience, make your audience feel smarter because they learned from you, and help the audience with their life or work.  It is also important to create a new and innovative context for the company separate from the corporate information, as well as considering thought leadership with perseverance and dedication as a campaign.


With FuzeEditor and Globalspeak managed services, associations and enterprises can start publishing immediately across all digital media mediums.  All services are provided by Globalspeak, from appealing channel platform design and easy site navigation to user engagement via RSS and social media.  Channel visitors experience, not static pages, but interactivity and involvement featuring industry news and information coupled with your current or newly created video and audio content (which Globalspeak can produce for you).
