17:02:29 <bay|AX|IA> (May or may not be covering more than the first half of this panel...)
17:03:12 <bay|AX|IA> Michael Ha... Kaylee Chun...
17:03:13 <bay|AX|IA> from ImaginAsian TV
17:03:26 <bay|AX|IA> we are happy to be one of the sponsors for the AX
17:03:58 <bay|AX|IA> available all over the US
17:04:06 <bay|AX|IA> looking to expand our distribution to other markets
17:04:25 <bay|AX|IA> if you happen to be in an area we aren't... let us know or call your cable/statellite and let them know
17:04:35 <bay|AX|IA> the biggest question is.. what do you do?
17:04:50 <bay|AX|IA> very few informercials
17:05:06 <bay|AX|IA> we represent the best content that represents asian pop culture
17:05:11 <bay|AX|IA> movies.. dramas.. music... variety shows.. anime
17:05:22 <bay|AX|IA> most of the acquired content is maintained in its own original language and subtitled
17:05:35 <bay|AX|IA> we also have quite a few original english programs
17:05:41 <bay|AX|IA> the network is not for asians exclusively
17:05:46 <bay|AX|IA> it is for anyone interested in asian pop culture
17:05:53 <bay|AX|IA> its an opportunity to see what people in asia are watching
17:06:08 <bay|AX|IA> its an opportunity to see the influence asian pop culture has seen on mainstream america
17:06:12 <bay|AX|IA> how many have seen wipeout...
17:06:19 <bay|AX|IA> it is the highest rated slow in its timeslot
17:06:25 <bay|AX|IA> it is a japanese format gameshow that was bought here and repurposed
17:06:44 <bay|AX|IA> we plan on having a show later this month called popper...
17:06:47 <bay|AX|IA> its going to be a show that covers all these game shows
17:06:50 <bay|AX|IA> and covers whats hot and whats not
17:06:59 <bay|AX|IA> we are also going to have our own type of gameshows
17:07:04 <bay|AX|IA> we plan more original programming toward the end of the year
17:07:08 <bay|AX|IA> most of the production will probably in the LA
17:07:31 <bay|AX|IA> we also have an online radio which highlights asian-american music and artists
17:08:09 <bay|AX|IA> we also have two movie theaters.. one downtown LA (main between 2nd and 3rd) with mongol playing
17:08:17 <bay|AX|IA> also one in midtown manhattan in ny
17:08:28 <bay|AX|IA> they are meant to promote asian films (First run)
17:08:38 <bay|AX|IA> and asian inspired hollywood films (Speed racer.. which ididn't do well)
17:09:09 <bay|AX|IA> the LA was completely renovated
17:09:10 <bay|AX|IA> the screen and sound in NY was new
17:09:20 <bay|AX|IA> we also have home entertainment and we dabble in film distribution

17:10:41 <bay|AX|IA> (same trailer reel that they have shown at previous cons)
17:12:04 <bay|AX|IA> (okay... slightly different)
17:15:26 <bay|AX|IA> that summarizes what we do

17:19:19 <bay|AX|IA> any updates on the tms classics that were released through titlematch?
17:19:37 <bay|AX|IA> thats a tough one... we're trying to find an alternative method of delivery...
17:19:43 <bay|AX|IA> titlematch has been having problems and hasn't filled any orders
17:19:49 <bay|AX|IA> we're trying to figure out who to use
17:20:02 <bay|AX|IA> will you acquire more classics from tms or other companies?
17:20:16 <bay|AX|IA> yes.. we are.. we know there is a lot of classic anime that is hard to get ...
17:20:21 <bay|AX|IA> and we are looking to acquire more.. not just with TMS
17:20:28 <bay|AX|IA> we are in some late negotations with other companies
17:21:12 <bay|AX|IA> (question about azn...)
17:21:56 <bay|AX|IA> if you do have programming suggestions, what you don't like

17:23:29 <bay|AX|IA> they have a huge library.. we are looking at some of the older and newe stuff
17:24:31 <bay|AX|IA> (questions about where they are available...)
17:25:31 <bay|AX|IA> the problem with dish network is they want the programming to be free and not in premium tiers
17:25:33 <bay|AX|IA> er
17:25:42 <bay|AX|IA> IA wants the programming to be free and not..
17:25:49 <bay|AX|IA> call them and tell them you want IAtv
