SpaceRef and the Secure World Foundation Enter Agreement on Multimedia Content Distribution

SpaceRef Interactive Inc. and the Secure World Foundation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the purpose of disseminating original multimedia content from Secure World Foundation events.

The first event to be distributed through SpaceRef's network is the Secure World Foundation release of the 2012 Space Security Index Executive Summary. The two hour moderated event held on July 17, 2012 included panelists Mr. Cesar Jaramillo, Project Ploughshares, Ms. Carissa Christensen, The Tauri Group, Mr. Michael Listner, Legal and Policy Consultant with Space Law and Policy Solutions and Ms. Audrey Schaffer, Office of the Secretary of Defense-Policy, Space.

The audio only event is available today for download from the Space Talk @SpaceRef podcast available on iTunes. In the coming weeks SpaceRef will also publish recent Secure World Foundation events on the Space Talk @SpaceRef podcast.

"Were very pleased to collaborate with the Secure World Foundation in distributing their high quality and relevant events to our audience," said Marc Boucher, CEO of SpaceRef. "As we expand our multimedia distribution channels we plan to sign on new partners who can connect with our audience".

Over the last decade weve seen a rapid change in how consumers want to receive their news and entertainment. Today consumers still want to watch and listen to live events but also want to consume on demand and online. Seeing the changes taking place, SpaceRef is implementing a plan to meet the demand of consumers and will unveil new services and distribution channels in the coming year.

Dr. Michael Simpson, Executive Director of the Secure World Foundation hailed the new partnership as a means to reach a large audience of people interested in space. "Our events have earned a reputation for stimulating in-depth discussion of important issues of space policy. This partnership will help us reach many more people with the message that the sustainable use of outer space is a worthwhile goal."
