Anime on The iPod

Date: 2005 October 21st Friday [18:30] | Posted By: Joe

The new Apple iPod can play video files and Central Park Media have announced that they are the first anime company to provide content for it. This is an adventurous move, since CPM have also started to release content on the PSP to download too. It's always good to see that anime companies are willing to experiment with new platforms to show anime.
Full Story
Press release as follows:

For Immediate Release:
CENTRAL PARK MEDIA BECOMES FIRST ANIME COMPANY TO PROVIDE VIDEO PROGRAMMING FOR IPOD
Anime video formated for iPod - now available at www.CentralParkMedia.com


New York, NY (October 21, 2005) - Central Park Media proudly announced today that it is the first anime company in the world to provide content for Apple's new video-capable iPod. Visitors can now download the first episode of Central Park Media's upcoming Armored Trooper VOTOMS at www.centralparkmedia.com/ipod/ as well as view the trailer for the shockingly horrific Kakurenbo: Hide & Seek, scheduled to premiere on a special pre-Halloween midnight broadcast on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, Saturday, October 29, and Hammerboy, winner of numerous prestigious awards on both sides of the Pacific. In the coming days and weeks, Central Park Media will be making available more full episodes and trailers to best-selling CPM anime including Descendants of Darkness, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and Shadow Star Narutaru, among hundreds of other titles.

"Releasing episodes and trailers for the iPod is only natural for Central Park Media. CPM has always been the pre-eminent innovator in the anime world," said Newton Grant, CPM's Director of Business Development. "We were the first to release anime on CD-ROM, DVD, and PSP downloads, and the first to offer manga and manhwa as Digi-press downloads, so now the iPod is perfectly natural for us."

Central Park Media currently offers downloadable content for the Sony PSP at http://www.centralparkmedia.com/psp/ and has entire volumes of manga and manhwa online at http://www.centralparkmedia.com/cpmpress/digipress.cfm.

Peter Tatara, CPM's fan community liaison executive, added, "It is a well-known fact that anime fans are the earliest adopters of new technology hardware and software. We are sure that they will quickly become a major customer base for video iPods, so we want to ensure that they can enjoy their favorite CPM titles on this new device."

While CPM's iPod video programs are available only at the CPM website at this time, the company expects to make its programming available at the Apple iTunes website once negotiations are completed. No schedule for launching on iTunes has been announced at this time.

About Central Park Media:

The company currently manufactures and distributes three home entertainment labels, each offering anime product for a distinct and discriminating anime audience: U. S.
