Msnbc.com Launches Debate Video Player

Msnbc.com launched its exclusive "debate video player" on the day of the first debate between the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. Available at www.politics.msnbc.com, it allows consumers to watch the full debate and at any time skip ahead to a specific topic by selecting one of 20 keywords available. When consumers click on a keyword, the timeline reveals the various points during the debate when those phrases were spoken by the candidates. Users can then explore the issues in context of the larger debate and also read analysis provided by NBC News. Msnbc.com says it is the only news provider offering this advanced video experience.

This exclusive video feature will also be available to consumers for the vice presidential debate. In the near future, consumers will have the ability to embed the debate video player on their websites and blogs. Msnbc.com was the first major network news site to offer embeddable video to consumers to post on their blogs and websites.

Based in Redmond, Wash., msnbc.com is a joint venture of Microsoft Corp. and NBC Universal.
