GalleryPlayer for HDTV

GalleryPlayer on Monday said it had launched a unique new TV network designed to let HDTV owners use their sets as artistic backgrounds. Comcast subscribers now have the option of viewing GalleryPlayer On Demand, a collection of user-selectable art programming. Viewers can pick from themed slideshows taken from several major art galleries and photography experts, including the Museum of Modern Art and National Geographic. Each slideshow is accompanied by music and is intended to use the high resolution provided by HDTV sets to showcase paintings and other artwork that would otherwise be inaccessible, GalleryPlayer says. Themes will often focus on specific artists such as Da Vinci or subjects like space photography. Comcast is offering the programming free to subscribers of its On Demand digital cable service.
