Park Service lights the Web

This year’s July 4 fireworks in Washington were not only broadcast on TV but also on the Web. The National Park Service produced it in cooperation with TVWorldwide.com Inc. of Chantilly, Va., a streaming video service provider.

The webcast included the concert at the Capitol that accompanied the fireworks and a pre-event show. As an added bonus, webcast viewers avoided the heat, humidity, bathroom lines and mosquitoes.

The fireworks webcast, which requires Real Video Player, is archived at www.tvworldwide.com. It was sponsored by Base Technologies Inc. of McLean, Va., and SOZA & Co. Ltd. of Fairfax, Va.
