Cisco to Announce Winners of USD$10,000 “What If Your TV Could…?” Global Video Contest
On Monday July 26th Cisco will announce the winners of its “What If Your TV Could… ?” contest live via a special Talk2Cisco online broadcast on UStream.tv, at 9:00 AM PDT/12:00 PM EST. Our “What if Your TV Could” contest is a global video contest that encouraged consumers to submit creative short videos about what they wish their TV could do for them for an opportunity to win $10,000. Yes- that’s right $10,000! We have had over 175 video submissions in response to Cisco’s question, “If your TV could do anything, what would you want it to do?” on Cisco’s contest website at http://www.ciscocontest.com. Consumers’ submitted animated videos, powerpoint videos, rap videos, and cool skits to share their ideas.
The best video has been chosen for the grand prize of $10,000, and the top three most-viewed videos will receive a $500 gift card to Amazon.com. The public had the opportunity to rate, comment and choose their favorite videos. Winners were based on the number of views, average rating and creativity as determined by a panel of judges from Cisco.
Cisco’s Murali Nemani, Director of Video Solutions Marketing, Cisco Service Provider Marketing will announce the winners and provide background on why we launched the contest, with insight on Cisco’s role in developing the next-generation television experience.
