MIAMI BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Mindpix Corporation (OTC Pink: MPIX); ("Mindpix" or the "Company"), a technology driven media services and entertainment company focused on owning, creating or managing multi-platform music/entertainment, sports and U.S. Hispanic media properties, today is pleased to announce that it has formed an Advisory Board and that Steven Marrs has joined as its first appointed member. Advisory Board members will add significant strategic and creative expertise to enhance the Company's knowledge base and expand the Company's media service and event capabilities at the top levels of targeted media, entertainment and sports industry sectors.
Steven Marrs is a highly accomplished media/entertainment executive with over 20 years' experience working with entertainment, music properties and consumer marketers in both the public and private sectors. He founded and sold 2 successful companies, Blue Marble ACG and Branded Pictures. Marrs currently heads Out East Entertainment, which recently sold a 13 episode script-to-series deal to the CW Network for the scripted drama, THE COVER. Prior to Out East, Momentum Worldwide, an Interpublic Company, recruited Steven to create and head up Momentum Entertainment Group. At Momentum he developed, packaged and produced multiple television series and events including Rogue (DirecTV), Full Circle (DirecTV), Elite Model Look (Style Network), Croc Files (NatGeo Wild), How Sweet the Sound TV Show (TV One), How Sweet the Sound Live Tour and digital series, PG&E's Energy House Calls.
Prior to creating MEG, he founded Branded Pictures where he created, produced and distributed programming across multiple platforms in markets around the world such as: "The World Music Awards," "America's Party," "Christmas from Central Park," and digital series, "Anatomy of a Socially Awkward Situation." Marrs rolled Branded Pictures into Momentum Worldwide, part of IPG, in 2010 as the basis for MEG. Prior to creating Branded Pictures, Marrs co-founded Tribal DDB Worldwide, an Omnicom Company specializing in digital marketing and entertainment where he built a worldwide network of 30 offices in 21 countries, and worked with a variety of Fortune 500 clients. Marrs also served as a founding partner of Blue Marble ACG, one of the first interactive entertainment and advertising agencies -- which was later sold to BCom3 (now Publicis).
Steven Marrs commented, "With the rapid proliferation of services and merging of digital media and entertainment technologies, the limitations of live and video-on-demand (VOD) entertainment event production and distribution have blurred. To keep an edge on competition, media companies today need to take an inventive and responsive approach to their digital media and event offerings that goes beyond the scope of 'traditional' and into the realm of 'constant evolution.'"
Marrs continued, "Through my research and discussions with Mindpix, I found a world-class team of media and entertainment executives who are taking that exact approach. Mindpix Services has the opportunity to push the boundaries in offering a turn-key and truly unique modern ecosystem comprised of end-to-end live and VOD event production services, combined with an innovative multi-platform distribution technology and an expansive, responsive technology partner program -- that include partners such a Causora and PlayCoin. This open model approach makes Mindpix an ideal candidate for growth and success in this new digital media and ever changing marketplace. I'm excited to work with Victor and the Management team to help Mindpix become the ultimate provider of media services to music, entertainment, sports, and U.S Hispanic media properties worldwide."
Victor Siegel, Chief Executive Officer and President of Mindpix Corporation, commented, "Mindpix is successfully building and rolling out an array of new digital product offerings for music, entertainment and sports rights holders. The creation of an Advisory Board is a big step for Mindpix in expanding our reach and resources throughout these sectors."
He continued "As our first strategic appointment of 2014. I'm thrilled to welcome Steven Marrs to our Advisory Board. He is an extraordinary, well-respected and influential early pioneer in both the digital media and entertainment industries. We have been working with Steven for some time now and I'm excited to formalize his role within our organization. We could not be more pleased to have his caliber of digital media and entertainment prowess on our advisory board; and look forward to capitalizing on his expertise and relationships as we expand our media services offering, top-line revenue and pipeline of revenue-generating live and VOD media, music, sports entertainment events worldwide."

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
