Norwegian NRK Holds Contest for Reuse of Train Ride Film

Norwegian television station NRK created a program featuring the train ride from Bergen to Oslo, a wintry and winding trip through Norway. They've now made the footage (taken from the front of the train) available for free to the public.

The video could be a great background for holiday parties (with over seven hours of footage), and you can also reuse it and send NRK a video to participate in their contest.

Implications - With the proliferation of video technologies, consumers no longer have to traverse long physical spaces in order to witness a specific locale. As such, corporations looking to disseminate information about a certain location may consider using video technology to do so rather than expecting consumers to travel.
