[prMac.com] Ashland, Oregon - Art Authority, creators of the award-winning line of classic art-viewing apps for Apple devices, today announced immediate availability of the Art Channel for Apple's new Apple TV, free through the Apple TV App Store. The Art Channel, powered by Art Authority's database of over 100,000 paintings and sculptures from 1500 artists, provides Apple TV users with extremely high-quality images of classic works of art for display on their HDTVs.
The first Art Channel show, included with the app, is The Best Ever, a hand-selected and hand-tuned set of the top paintings of all time. Masterpieces like Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" and Van Gogh's "Starry Night" hanging (often life-size) on a home's wall literally have to be seen to be believed.
The Art Channel is also more than just a bunch of pretty pictures. The detailed information behind each work of art earned the Art Authority K-12 app designation as one of Apple's five "Real World Learning" selections for 2015, and much of that information is readily available with each work of art on the Art Channel. Additional groundbreaking features from the Art Authority line, such as Art Real Size, Art Like This, and Art Near Me, are also planned for the Art Channel.
"Just as with the iPhone and iPad, Apple's opening up Apple TV to apps will add another dimension to the platform," said Alan Oppenheimer, president of Art Authority. "We're pleased that, just as with those two devices, we're able to provide a great art app on day one for the Apple TV as well."
Additional details on the Art Channel app, and the Art Authority product line, are available on the Art Authority website and blog.
Art Authority is the product of an innovative collaboration between two separate software companies, Open Door Networks and Project A. Art Authority's mission is the design, development and deployment of the best ways for users to experience art on their modern-day devices. Copyright (C) 2015 Open Door Networks, Inc.
