This year's July 4 fireworks in Washington were not only broadcast on TV but also on the Web. The National Park Service produced it in cooperation with TVWorldwide.com Inc. of Chantilly, Va., a streaming video service provider.
The webcast included the concert at the Capitol that accompanied the fireworks and a pre-event show. As an added bonus, webcast viewers avoided the heat, humidity, bathroom lines and mosquitoes.
The fireworks webcast, which requires Real Video Player, is archived at www.tvworldwide.com
. It was sponsored by Base Technologies Inc. of McLean, Va., and SOZA & Co. Ltd. of Fairfax, Va.
