Astute Supports World Wildlife Fund's 2010 Earth Hour Initiative

RESTON, VA, March 28, 2010 – Astute Technology recently supported The World Wildlife Fund's important Earth Hour initiative with technology solutions for near real-time representations of Earth Hour through images and videos from around the world. Through its powerful hosting facilities, Astute was able to support the upload of images and video from professional photographers in over 130 countries so that users could view 'Earth Hour' throughout the 24 hours as it happened in each local time zone. At 8:30 pm local time on March 27, important landmarks around the globe turned off their lights in support of the initiative. The lights on to lights off moments are displayed through an image gallery created by Astute on www.earthhour.org.
