DIRECTOR/PRODUCER SHANTEL HANSEN PRESENTS “HER TURF”, A DOCUMENTARY SHORT FILM FEATURING THREE FEMALE FOOTBALL OFFICIALS

#SheIsUnstoppable

“HER TURF” A DOCUMENTARY SHORT FILM FEATURING THREE FEMALE FOOTBALL OFFICIALS

#SheIsUnstoppable

HER TURF captures the strides women have made as officials, and the progress they are making in the profession.

Follow the film festival journey of females officiating football.

Director/Producer Shantel Hansen and the cast of HER TURF

Colorado-based first-time Filmmaker/Director/Producer presents "Her Turf” during Denver's SeriesFest

Our cast and crew are honored to be selected to screen at SeriesFest. As a Colorado Filmmaker, this event is important to our cast and the episodic storytelling opportunity of our film.”

— Shantel Hansen

CENTENNIAL, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Females have been officiating on the football field since 1990. Colorado filmmaker Shantel Hansen, first-time Filmmaker, Director, and Producer of Her Turf filmed three female football officials to tell their story for the very first time. From 2015 to 2018, Hansen shot this unique cast, in six different locations. FOX Sports Analyst and former Vice President of NFL Officiating, Dean Blandino serves as Executive Producer. Blandino is joined by Producer TS Botkin and Associate Producer Ann Cross.

“Our cast and crew are honored to be selected to screen at SeriesFest. As a Colorado Filmmaker, this event, and their audience is important to our cast. We believe audiences will appreciate the social issues our award-winning film, Her Turf, showcases through the lens of sports as sports permeate our culture,” first-time Director and Producer Shantel Hansen states. “Throughout our film festival journey, Her Turf continues to ignite in-depth conversations about gender, identity, representation, and works to break down stereotypes about women holding powerful roles in sports.”

This award-winning and groundbreaking documentary was selected to screen at ten film festivals since April 2019, and has won three awards at Film Festivals: Van Gogh Award at the Amsterdam Film Festival, Independent Shorts Awards Los Angeles, and Brentwood & the Movie Sports Pacific Palisades International Film Festival.

According to Executive Producer Dean Blandino, “Screening at SeriesFest offers an opportunity for Her Turf to tell the untold story of three remarkable female football officials on and off the football field for the first time. Her Turf showcases what it takes to be an official through capturing behind the scene moments in the locker room and during the offseason, which ultimately brings an episodic storytelling opportunity to fans of females, football, and all sports everywhere.”

“Women on the sidelines and women on the periphery is not standard practice anymore,” said Producer TS Botkin. “Women are in the game. When women make gains, we all make gains. It’s a win-win in the game of life!”

The timely and engaging film features Annice Canady, Tangela Mitchel, and Mary Podesta. Annice Canady from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida started officiating football in 1990 at the youth level. After battling cancer three times, she made her collegiate debut officiating for the NCAA in 2001. In 2002, Canady was the first female official to work an NCAA Division I football game on August 31, 2002.

Tangela Mitchell has the “it” factor in officiating; she is ambitious and talented. She keeps a level head during moments of physical and emotional adversity; is an integral part of every play. In 2013, Tangela Mitchell was one of four females to officiate in a SIAC football game. Mitchell continues to prove she has what it takes to officiate in the NFL.

Mary Podesta’s storyline brings some lightness to the gravity of Annice and Tangela’s journeys. Working full-time as a physical education teacher in California, Mary officiates, for the love of the game. Her perspective is a refreshing contrast, downplaying the obstacles women face. However, through her optimism and moving quotes, the hurdles remain in the undercurrent.

These women reveal the struggles and triumphs of excelling in traditionally male-dominated roles. By their very presence, these three women are opening doors for those who will arrive after them. Her Turf is a timely and potent documentary, which follows three pioneering female football officials as they boldly attempt to level the playing field. As these officials change preconceived ideas about women excelling in a traditionally male role, this film will spark more in-depth conversations about gender representation in team sports.

ABOUT HER TURF
Synopsis: This award-winning short documentary film follows three female football officials as they claim access to a powerful role in a male-dominated industry. Annice Canady was the first female football referee to officiate a NCAA game in 2001. She is revered as a trailblazer, opening the door for other women to be in charge. The three-time cancer survivor does not shy away from reporting harsh realities on what it was like being the first female on the field. Tangela Mitchell has the “it” factor in officiating; she’s ambitious and has the talent to officiate in the NFL someday. Tangela carries Annice’s baton with grace as she continues to advance in the pipeline. Mary Podesta officiates for the love of the game and being part of the football community. Her sound bites are self-deprecating, entertaining, and funny.

AWARDS:
Amsterdam International Film Festival
Independent Shorts Awards Los Angeles
Brentwood & Pacific Palisades International Film Festival

HER TURF was selected for the 2019 Women in Film and Media Colorado Film Finishing Fund. The organization is dedicated to the advancement of all women working in the film, television, multi-media, web and video game industries in Colorado. Through educational panels, networking events, a newsletter, contests and more, WIFMCO hopes to connect, empower, educate and support all female media makers and help to elevate the Colorado media industry overall. www.wifmco.org

Actions Conquer Tragedy The Reagan Tokes Legacy accepted into AOF and Hollywood Dreams Film Festival

A tragic story turned into an empowering message of strength, faith, hope, courage and love.

The Tokes Family: Reagan, McKenzie, Lisa,Toby

Lisa Tokes with Rob Fletcher gathering an army to educate, raise awareness and teach safety and self defense

A tragic story with a very empowering message, mission & purpose. “Evil will not win. Good will prevail. Actions Conquer Tragedy" .

I refuse to let that one night of evil define our daughters life and legacy. Evil will not win. Good will prevail. Actions Conquer Tragedy”

— Lisa Tokes

COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Executive producers Rob Fletcher and Lisa and Toby Tokes announce the acceptance of movie trailer “Actions Conquer Tragedy: The Reagan Tokes Legacy” into the Del Weston Action on Film Festival and the Hollywood Dreams Film Festival to be held in Las Vegas July 24–Aug. 3, 2019.

The trailer highlights a story that is every parent’s worst nightmare. On February 8, 2017, 21-year-old Ohio State University student Reagan Tokes was robbed, raped, abducted and murdered. Before being shot twice in the head, Reagan’s final words were “I just want to live.”

The story of Reagan’s parents, Lisa and Toby Tokes, is emotional and compelling. They deliver an empowering message of strength, faith, hope, and courage – most importantly, of love – as they move forward in fighting the system, laws, and policies that failed them. Their daughter’s life and legacy will be defined by “Actions Conquer Tragedy.”

Says Executive Producer Rob Fletcher, “This story, which we hope is picked up by a production company or producer, is powerful on so many levels. These parents define themselves after tragedy took away their most precious gift. How the Tokes have the strength to hold on is amazing. They chose to fight, make a difference and save lives. Lisa and Toby selflessly sacrifice to prevent a similar horror from striking another family.”

Reagan’s murderer was a violent criminal who was released from prison early, in spite of committing 52 infractions while incarcerated. He was released with a GPS ankle bracelet that was not monitored. Prior to murdering Reagan, he violently victimized six other people. Lisa and Toby Tokes believe their daughter’s murder was entirely preventable. Instead of taking time to grieve, they took action and brought to fruition the Reagan Tokes Act which gives state prison officials the ability to take an offender’s prison record into account when deciding to release or retain the individual behind bars and also require formal guidelines for parolee monitoring. 

Lisa Tokes says, “This is a journey I wish I was never on. However, I refuse to let that one night of evil define our daughter's life. This is what we must do. This is what Reagan would want us to do. Evil will not win. Good will prevail.” As a result, the Actions Conquer Tragedy movement was born.  

Actions Conquer Tragedy represents the ongoing effort to fix flawed laws and policies and also educate and train on safety and self-defense. Rob Fletcher is a recognized self-defense and combative tactics expert who offers programs in schools and businesses across the country. Reagan’s story touched him to the core, and he now partners with Lisa Tokes in presenting these programs. His signature program, sdi7 HIIT (self-defense in 7 minutes high intensity interval training), is gaining attention and momentum, raising awareness and teaching self-defense and how to protect others. “Crime, violence, active shooters will never go away.” Rob’s mission is prevention and saving lives.

The Actions Conquer Tragedy movement is real. The Reagan Tokes gala, now an annual event, raises money for a scholarship foundation that bears Reagan’s name. Another annual event is the sdi7 HIIT Safety & Self-Defense Conference that brings together law enforcement, military, martial arts, fitness, and special ops professionals to deliver information and expertise in the areas of safety, prevention, awareness, fitness, and self-defense, including weapon disarmament, learning how to fight back and where and how to strike, and active shooter detection and response.

To learn more about safety, prevention, awareness and self-defense programs, and training, visit www.sdi7hiit.com or email: sdi7hiit@gmail.com Instagram: @sdi7HIIT

New Feature Film "One Nation Under God" Receives Thunderous Ovation at Houston's Lakewood Church

L to R: “One Nation Under God” actor Grayson Berry, writer/director Lisa Arnold, Lakewood Church Senior Advisor and ordained minister Jackelyn Viera Iloff

We are grateful to Joel and Victoria Osteen, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, and the members of Lakewood Church who so overwhelming embraced our film”

— Christian Briggs, Executive Producer

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fresh on the heels of the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives’ removal of the words “so help me God” from that institution’s swearing in oath, a new feature film which debates the excision of the words “one nation under God” from the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance was screened for an invited audience at Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston on June 7. The audience in the packed theatre responded with thunderous applause as the credits rolled, signaling their overwhelming approval of “One Nation Under God,” which is slated for a year-end wide release.

Lakewood Church, with a membership of more than 18,000, regularly holds Lakewood Movie Night, at which quality family films are screened. In selecting “One Nation Under God” for its most recent screening, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, Senior Advisor and one of the church’s ordained ministers, said, “Our founding fathers placed God at the center of our country, but today, it has become our greatest battle to keep Him there. #ONENATIONUNDERGOD shares the story of a Hispanic student from an immigrant family that boldly steps out to protect his first amendment right in his school and challenges the lead candidate for the Presidency of the United States to do the same. Together, they take a stand for what they believe.”

“We are grateful to Joel and Victoria Osteen, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, and the members of Lakewood Church who so overwhelming embraced our film.,” said Executive Producer Christian Briggs. “Their tremendous response tells us that this film is a rarity today – a family film about standing up for what is right that is also great entertainment. We are looking forward to bringing ‘One Nation Under God’ to audiences everywhere later this year.”

“One Nation Under God,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr., Casper Van Dien, Lois Robbins, Herschel Walker and Isaak Presley, has received 32 major awards at film festivals over the past year. Underscoring the film’s excellence and relevance among faith and family audiences, it has won top awards at the International Film Festival, God Country Family Film Festival, Christian Film Festival and many others.

Written and directed by Lisa Arnold, who co-produced the hugely successful 2014 “God’s Not Dead”, “One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship when a new student at a Louisiana magnet school questions a policy in which the words “under God” are omitted in daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

About “One Nation Under God”:
When a magnet school teacher in Louisiana (Sorbo) is confronted by a new student (Presley), a young Latino raised by a single mom, who questions the school’s policy toward his First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, the subject becomes the basis of a debate in a juried showdown with a rival school. Casper Van Dien plays the school’s principal who staunchly defends the policy, and Antonio Sabato Jr. plays a senator who has his eye on the White House, yet whose public comments supporting a place for faith in education get him in political hot water. Football legend Herschel Walker plays himself as an alumnus of the school

“One Nation Under God” is a Suretone Pictures/Film Incito co-production. Nick Thurlow, Jordan Schur, Jarred Coates and Lisa Arnold are producers. Christian Briggs, Herschel Walker, David Mitchell and Keith Jensen are executive producers.

At today’s E3 Expo, long time Chinese developers Seasun Games announced that the mobile version of their popular martial arts focused MMO, JX3 was released.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — At today’s E3 Expo, long time Chinese developers Seasun Games announced that the mobile version of their popular martial arts focused MMO, JX3 was released to Chinese audiences. The martial-arts focused mobile MMO has been highly anticipated by fans reaching over 15 million pre-registration sign-ups before its launch. Eastward Legend: The Empyrean aims to fill the niche of a fully-featured MMO on mobile platforms.

Development and production

Developed over four years, The Empyrean designed by Kris Kwok is very much like its PC predecessor in that it is heavily focused on historical martial arts, specifically from the Tang Dynasty. Jie Chen, Director of Engineering of Seasun Games has stated that the developers are “committed to being the purest Chinese martial arts game.” The dedication to the traditional is made apparent in the game’s graphics which have been inspired by the very artwork from the Tang Dynasty. Using traditional Chinese brushwork art as its inspiration, The Empyrean uses NextGen graphics to produce some seriously beautiful moments that one would expect to see in the PC version but may otherwise be unexpected for a mobile title.

A true and immersive MMO experience on mobile

As an immersive MMO, The Empyrean features a realistic day/night loop and environmental interactions called “sensory simulations”. In order to keep the mobile adaptation as immersive as the original, Seasun Games has incorporated the same dynamic environmental effects into Eastward Legends: The Empyrean. Weather will play a part in player’s actions such as having to find shelter from the rain in order to build a fire or NPCs using umbrellas when a deluge occurs. The full effects of weather and environment span 80 stunning hand-painted scenes, as well as the unique parallel world that is a treasure trove of hidden details from past and present known as “Mind Mode”. Entering Mind Mode is purely left to choice as you’ll be able to toggle the mode whenever you wish to enter the mind-melding universe.

Robust social features

To give another sense of belonging to the world, The Empyrean features the same social culture that many have grown to love in JX3. Just like the original PC version, guilds and martial arts groups will be able to form and players can find others to interact with to create their own meaningful relationships within the game.

Eastward Legends: The Empyrean is now available for players in China and brings with it a fresh and polished take on JX3 on mobile. With a dynamic environment, beautifully rendered graphics which take inspiration from the traditional era of the game’s story and social features that will let players interact in ways typically only found on PC MMOs, The Empyrean is a true reimagination of JX3 for mobile.

Jennifer Thomas is Bringing the Heat to 20 Cities

Jennifer Thomas list of tour dates, Summer 2019

Dynamic Leading Billboard Classical artist Jennifer Thomas is touring the U.S. Western States this Summer.

Composer & performer Jennifer Thomas’ album The Fire Within debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover chart in late 2018; her tour of the same name covers the Western U.S. beginning next week.

Tickled Ivory Music Announces THE FIRE WITHIN, the dynamic artist’s 2019 Summer Tour of the Western U.S.A.

I don't really do anything small, do I?! I have placed my piano on a couple of different beaches, as well as a rainforest…why not a piano on fire in the middle of a desert?”

— Jennifer Thomas

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imagine playing the violin on a pirate ship at sea, or dueling on a burning piano in the desert, and you’ll begin to grasp Jennifer Thomas’ passionate style of entertaining her ever-growing fanbase! This summer, Tickled Ivory Music presents The Fire Within Summer 2019 Tour, a 20-city tour of the USA’s Western States featuring Thomas and dynamic guests such as spoken word artist J.ournal Poems, and The Rogue Pianist. The tour — named after her most recent Billboard-charting album The Fire Within — ignites in Washington’s Tri-Cities on June 19, and burns on through Spokane, Idaho, Salt Lake City, Denver, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Las Vegas, California, Oregon, and back to Washington state to culminate with a PREMIERE VIP concert and event in Seattle on August 24; complete details of the schedule, and ticket information, are available at JenniferThomas.Eventbrite.com

“NO YAMAHA PIANOS WERE HURT DURING THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO!” Thomas reassures fans beneath “The Fire Within” music video on her YouTube page, stacked with her stunning videos, each more beautiful than the last. “The piano that was burned was (already) terribly damaged and had seen its day. A lot of people asked me if I was going to turn it into a table piece, or a garden ornament, but I said, ‘No, I think I'm going to set it on fire.’ I don't really do anything small, do I?! I have placed my piano on a couple of different beaches, as well as a rainforest…why not a piano on fire in the middle of a desert?”

Delivering the drama that her fans crave, “The Fire Within” video features Thomas and The Rogue Pianist in a dueling piano duet, alternating locations between the desert wilderness and the concert hall, culminating with a piano in flames as Thomas looks on. Widely considered by her peers as one of the most remarkable young Classical composers and multi-instrumentalists of our time, Thomas is beloved for her creative collaborations, as well as her sophisticated cover songs (“Believer” by Imagine Dragons is on The Fire Within) and her soaring original compositions reminiscent of Hans Zimmer’s cinematic works.

In recent years, Thomas has landed among the Top 1% of all artists on Pandora music, garnering between 1 to 1.4 Million streams per week. With her popularity translating to the charts, The Fire Within released in October 2018, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard Classical Album chart and also at No. 2 on the Classical Crossover chart, an impressive feat, especially for an independent artist. The Fire Within is Thomas’ sixth album, and was recorded with the English Session Orchestra in London at Abbey Road Studios, with additional sessions at Yamaha in Nashville and Opus 4 Studios near Seattle.

From the release of her debut album, Key of Sea (2007) to The Fire Within (2018), Thomas’ dedication to excellence has been applauded by fans, filmmakers and peers such as her mixing engineer Brian Vibberts, a 6-time GRAMMY® Award winner, and GRAMMY®-nominated producer/engineer Paul Speer. Her collaborations, songs, albums, film scores and videos have won more than 20 awards, including “Best Holiday Album” (2016 Hollywood Music in Media Awards) and “Best Classical/Opera” song (2017 Peace Song Awards), and an Audience Choice Award in the 2008 Swan Lake Moving Image and Music Awards in Germany. Thomas composed her first original film score for “Minuet” by director/writer Ryan K. McNeal, winning the Gold Medal of Excellence at the 2011 Park City Film Music Festival for “Best Original Music in a Short Film,” and receiving a nomination for Classical/Orchestral “Best Song” in the 2011 Hollywood Music in Media Awards for Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue (D Minor).”

Thomas said that she and her label planned the tour schedule around cities where her streaming data shows she has the largest online audience. The venues vary in size, and families of all ages are encouraged to attend the concerts, which draw upon by her own experience as a child musician.

“I think that all children should, and need, to be exposed to music education,” she shares. “It awakens their minds in ways that other things cannot. I was brought up by a Mother who was incredibly talented and dedicated to teaching my siblings and I music…I participated in competitions, recitals and adjudications. But passion cannot be forced or taught. I found my passion in music when I was 12-years old after watching an old classic movie that really inspired me and propelled me forward in my own music practice.”

And, although Thomas said she doesn’t do anything small, that’s not completely true…when not composing or recording, she loves getting down and playing Legos with her three young sons.

New Family Movie About Free Speech Wins 32 Top Film Festival Awards

“One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship”

— Christian Briggs, Executive Producer

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Looking towards its release later this year, “One Nation Under God,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr., Casper Van Dien, Lois Robbins, Herschel Walker and Isaak Presley, has received 32 major awards at film festivals over the past year. Underscoring the film’s excellence and relevance among faith and family audiences, it has won top awards at the International Christian Film Festival, God Country Family Film Festival, Christian Film Festival and many others.

Written and directed by Lisa Arnold, who co-produced the hugely successful 2014 “God’s Not Dead”, “One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship when a new student at a Louisiana magnet school questions a policy in which the words “under God” are omitted in daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

The United Nations has declared in its Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”

“Everywhere we have screened this film, reaction from audiences and festival judges alike has been tremendous,” said Executive Producer Christian Briggs. “Standing ovations have been the norm, telling us that we have a beautifully acted and produced film, and additionally the audience is very passionate about the subject matter of “One Nation Under God.” Free speech is the cornerstone of democracy, and we must hold that right very dear to us.”

Citing the rising demand for and success of family and faith films, Briggs went on to say that the film is expected to open in 200-250 theaters at the outset, then to expand distribution more broadly following that.

When a magnet school teacher in Louisiana (Sorbo) is confronted by a new student (Presley), a young Latino raised by a single mom, who questions the school’s policy toward his First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, the subject becomes the basis of a debate in a juried showdown with a rival school. Casper Van Dien plays the school’s principal who staunchly defends the policy, and Antonio Sabato Jr. plays a senator who has his eye on the White House, yet whose public comments supporting a place for faith in education get him in political hot water. Football legend Herschel Walker plays himself as an alumnus of the school.

Select film festival awards include:

“Best Family Film” – International Film Festival
“Best Film” – God Country Family Christian Film Festival
“Best Writer” – Christian Online Film Festival
“Best Feature” Colorado International Activism Festival
“Best Feature,” “Fan Favorite” – Christian Film Festival
“Best Feature” – Mindfield Film Festival
“Most Inspirational Film,” “Best Director,” “Best Actor” – Hollywood Devine Film Festival”
“Best Feature Film,” “Best Ensemble Cast” – Manhattan International Film Festival
“Best Feature Film,” “Best Actor in Feature” – Golden Gate International Film Festival
“Best Faith Feature” – Franklin International Independent Film Fest
“Best Feature” – Global Film Festival

“One Nation Under God” is a Suretone Pictures/Film Incito co-production. Nick Thurlow, Jordan Schur, Jarred Coates and Lisa Arnold are producers. Christian Briggs, Herschel Walker, David Mitchell and Keith Jensen are executive producers.

MARSEILLE TEAMS UP WITH OG ARABIAN PRINCE, FOUNDING MEMBER OF N.W.A, TO UNLEASH MCLASSIC AT E3 2019

mClassic Upscales Gaming

Before and After Using mClassic on Fortnight

mClassic™ is the World’s First Video Game Console Plug-and-Play Graphics Processor Created to Improve your Game Without Console Modifications.

After seeing how mCable improved my game, I just knew there had to be a better way to bring better graphics to console gamers. I saw the opportunity to address a need no one else had before.”

— Arabian Prince

SANTA CLARA, CA, US, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Marseille Inc., a global leader in video processing, innovative HDMI products partnered with OG Arabian Prince, founding member of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Rap Group N.W.A, to unleash the mClassic at the Electronic Entertainment Expo June 11-13 as the gaming industry and community descend upon Los Angeles Convention Center to see the latest advances in the gaming industry.

mClassic is the result of an amazing ongoing collaboration between Marseille Founder and CEO Amine Chabane, head of a company that's been dedicated to video enhancement since 2005, and OG rap legend, Arabian Prince who is a passionate gamer pushing the boundaries of technology through his non-profit iNov8 Next Open Labs, a product innovation incubator designed to empower the brightest inventors through mentorship.

Marseille has had a goal since the beginning: to improve the world's video quality. This led to the release of the highly revered, mCable, which disrupted the video game market in 2017 with the industry’s first HDMI cable equipped with an integrated intelligent graphics pixel processor, capable of dramatically improving the video resolution of existing console games and video content. Gamers were mesmerized with the possibility of extracting more value out of their monitors and TVs with a solution that could optimize the video resolution of the games they love in a simple “plug and play” fashion. After using the original mCable himself, Arabian Prince approached Marseille with the belief that he could make a great solution even better.

“After seeing how Marseille’s mCable improved my game, I just knew there had to be a better way to bring better graphics to console gamers,” said Arabian Prince, mClassic’s Chief Designer. “As an avid fan of console gaming, I saw the opportunity to address a need no one else had a solution for until now.”

The result of this collaboration is mClassic, offering the same core benefits of the original mCable but with more flexibility and a heightened value. Capitalizing on the great intrinsic technology that the original mCable stunned the market with in 2017, Arabian Prince offered his considerable industrial design skills to help Marseille develop mClassic with a sleek, beautiful design.
The original mCable was the world’s first video game console plug-and-play graphics processor to upscale image quality to near-native 4K or Super HD in real time so users can see a stunningly beautiful picture with color clarity and details as intended by game developers. mClassic’s powerful video processor analyzes each pixel in its immediate and global contexts to determine the most suitable processing per pixel with Marseille’s propriety technology called Contextual Processing. This sophisticated technology enhances regions in an image according to their specific characteristics to preserve the image’s balance and give the TV a better image to build upon.

mClassic’s patented technology redraws every single pixel on the fly at 120 FPS with near-zero latency and eliminates jagged edges that are smoothed over by our advanced anti-aliasing algorithm. While graphics video processors typically focus on either the “sharpness” or “naturalness” of an image, mClassic ensures the image is in perfect balance. In fact, the original mCable was so “game-changing that the legendary Technicolor® certified the technology used in mClassic to meet the rigorous standards of Technicolor’s 4K Image Certified test suite. mClassic also supports HDMI High Definition Audio for a full range of high definition audio types including DSD, DTS-HD Master Audio, and Dolby Atmos. The sleek, portable mClassic stick weighs less than an ounce, measures 0.8in x 1.6in x 2.2in and features Marseille’s VTV-1224 chip, 4K Chroma 4:4:4 Scaler Processor, HDMI 1.4b Receiver/Transmitter and 120 FPS Graphic Post-Processor. It also features three function selection modes: Pass-Thru, Full-Processing, and Retro Game Mode.

Availability and Pricing

mClassic will launch on Thursday, June 27th only through Kickstarter. To give consumers the opportunity to get their hands on this unique product before it goes to mass market, mClassic will be available for $79 a discount of $20 from the MSRP of $99. You can register to be notified about the launch of the Kickstarter campaign here: www.marseilleinc.com/kickstarter.

It’s noteworthy to mention that mClassic will be demonstrated at E3 using the Dell 27 Gaming Monitor (S2719DGF) which supports resolutions at 2560 X 1440 at 144 Hz. As Dell is the largest manufacturer of high-performance monitors in the world and has enviable credibility in the gaming space with its Alienware and XPS product lines, Marseille selected this monitor for the E3 demos so that mClassic’s potential could be shown in the most optimal manner with many of the most popular console games.

To get a sneak peek of Marseille’s mClassic at E3 stop by Booth #2723 South Hall or contact Gina Hughes at gina.hughes@marseilleinc.com.

About Marseille Inc

The Bronx female MC makes a statement right out the gate on her first mixtape of 2019 "For The Love". The title alone says it all; she makes music for the love.

Her love for making music is evident on every single song on the mixtape, and she shines on her hooks…”

— David Ritchen

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first track on the Mixtape "For The Love" is "Ready or Not", a proper track that propels the Bronx, New York, female MC back into the musical space that she left in 2016. The track clearly lets her listeners and doubters know, that ready or not, she is 'back in her bag' and she's coming back to finish what her and her team (MVB RECORDS) started in the beginning of her professional music career.

"Stay Neckin'" is the second track on the mixtape, and on this track; and throughout the mixtape, La'Vega embraces her Hispanic (Dominican) heritage by sprinkling a little Spanish in her lyrics. On this same track La'Vega makes it clear that she did not forget the haters; past and present, who dismiss her aspirations but are still watching her every move now that she is back in the music industry. Nothing makes the previous statement more true than the lyrics, "well my value is going up, hit you n*ggas with the swerve, cause when y'all was dishing out I plotted back what y'all deserve". Those lyrics clearly show that La'Vega is playing chess while everyone else around her is playing checkers. The listeners of "For The Love" will find many instances of La'Vega going down her Hit list of people who crossed her in the past, and If you listen to the lyrics throughout the mixtape it is clear that she addresses everything and everyone that needs to be addressed, all while getting back into her zone and reminding us that her pen and hook game is bonkers.

The highlights of the mixtape are the last four tracks; 3. No Bay-Bee, 4. Get It Poppin', 5. Bigger The Bag, and 6. Like a Boss (Boss Lil Man). The standout track on the mixtape has to be "No Bay-Bee". "No Bay-Bee" shows off La'Vega's melody making skills and her unmatched ability to write killer hooks. The hook on "No Bay-Bee" is so infectious that it is sure to have it's listeners throwing up their middle fingers to every hater in their lives. It is rumored that "No Bay-Bee" is supposed to be remixed with a featured artist, but no official word has been released to confirm it.

"For The Love" is the perfect title for La'Vega's first mixtape of 2019, and also because its her first mixtape in three years. Her love for making music is evident on every single song on the mixtape, and she shines on her hooks and and creates catchy melodies that will keep her fans singing. Her website www.MissLavega.com will launch this month (June), and will feature exclusive content, and new pictures from her first photo shoot of 2019, which is also scheduled in June. Listeners and fans can stream La'Vega's new and past releases on Apple Music, Spotify, and all other popular music stores.
