PREVU Corporation Launch Travel Videos

29th May 2006

PREVU Corporation Launch Travel Videos on Singapore’s M1 3G Mobile network

Auckland-based PREVU Corporation has launched its range of travel videos on M1, a leading Singapore 3G mobile network. In what is believed to be a world first, viewers are able to watch videos showcasing key travel destinations and leading hotels throughout the Asia Pacific region through their 3G handsets, before booking a venue. The video content – originally produced for the internet – is designed to help inspire users about their holiday choices and accommodation.

Kenton Chan, Country Manager, PREVU Corporation Singapore said: `This partnership with M1 is another valuable platform for viewers to gain access to travel content to help them make their decision about their holiday destination and accommodation. The initial response to our video guides has been great. We will be promoting the destinations and accommodation jointly with M1 over the coming months.’

PREVU managing director, Peter Tanner explained: `Our research shows that among the spread of viewers worldwide the preferred media of choice is video. We believe we are the first to extend this very effective sales tool to mobile users. We have found that a growing number of viewers having watched a video, decided to book with that hotel. We’re pretty excited because it confirms what we believe about the high level return on investment PREVU video-marketing provides.’

More than 1.2 million online video viewers used PREVU Corporation’s travel industry e-marketing network during the 12 months to 31 Jan 2006. The New Zealand born company is seeking $1 million in development capital to fund the next stage in establishing its global coverage.
