Digital revolution at inagural

L.A.-based company Digital Revolution has been tapped to produce a multimedia display in conjunction with the 53rd presidential inauguration on Monday.

The display, dubbed Technology Playground, will be set up in an inflatable tent (enclosed and heated) on the National Mall in Washington on Jan. 18 and 19. It will serve as a showcase for U.S.-developed new technologies.

Companies participating in the Technology Playground include Warner Home Video, Intel, Silicon Graphics, National Geographic Interactive, Yahoo, IBM, PBS Online, MGM, Sportsline USA and Web TV.

Digital Revolution said it will produce three areas for the Playground: a “virtual bridge” to the 21st century, which will allow citizens to send electronic messages to President Clinton; a live chat area, featuring avatar-based tech-nology provided by the Palace (a joint venture of Intel, Time Warner and Softbank); and “Web-U-Mentary,” featuring hourly updates of photos, footage and events surrounding the inauguration.
