TPN-TV-LogoTPN.TV began covering CES in 2007 with only two people and a camera. By 2010, the crew had grown to 15 people, as we livestreamed our first event from the NBC Universal booth. The numbers were so successful the crew decided to take things to the next level. In 2011, we rented a booth and launched TPN Live.

In the seven years TPN has been bringing great CES content to you, producing thousands of video reviews and interviews. This is no easy feat, with interviews and video production consuming our days and the posting of all this great information for you to see consuming our nights.

“We are the smallest group of folks that create the largest amount of content,” says Todd Cochrane, CEO of RawVoice and GeekNewsCentral. “I am really excited about all the outstanding individuals and organizations supporting us on the crowdfund.”

To make sure TPN best covers the event, three or fourcrews scour the halls for the most innovative content while another crew conducts interviews at the booth — all this in addition to live-bloggers, photographers and others who make this event run smoothly.

Looking To You – the viewer

Every year we look for sponsors to help us cover costs; they have been — and continue to be — amazing. But, let’s face it, bringing you the best and the brightest and the newest and the trendiest tech gear and gadgets is expensive. By crowdfunding, we’ve found a means to not only support our team and the end product, we’ve found another way to help you be a part of TPN at CES.

With your help, we hope to raise $5,000 to bring the staff needed to cover this marathon event, cover expenses and bring you the best product and tech advances on the spot and down the road.

“Going to CES for this coverage opportunity is one of my favorite things to do,” says Jeffrey Powers of Geekazine. “I have seen gadgets before they come out to the public, I have been able to talk with the creators and get their points of view and I’ve even met a couple of celebrities also at the event…”

Great rewards for great people!
