Video in Print ad-CBSThe September 18th issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine will include the first ever video in print advertisement. The video, made possible by technology from the Los Angeles based company Americhip, will include promotions for the upcoming CBS fall season.  The video in print ad will only be included in magazines to subscribers in the New York and Los Angeles areas.  With this new technology the possibilities for embedded video in all kinds of everyday items are endless.

    @Blacknimbus I wonder how long the battery will last? It has to be powered some way right?

    @Blacknimbus I don’t know about you, but I’m not sure I’d have the patience to charge my magazine to see an ad ;)

    I just got my EW today too, and no video either. Looks like we are not the only ones. There are several other EW subscribers in LA who did not get it. Booo!!!! Did ANYONE get it????
