TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Nov. 20, 2014) – ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT”) (TSX VENTURE:ART) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Bateman and Richard D. “Skip” Bronson to the company’s Board of Advisors.
CEO Paul Duffy states, “ARHT is extremely proud of the Board of Advisors we have assembled to date. We have an extremely diverse group of very powerful people in differing fields. From music legends, to actors and business moguls, ARHT truly has what we consider to be one of the finest Board of Advisors ever assembled.”
Jason Bateman states, “As an actor I saw the use cases for ARHT’s technology right away. The ability to create life-like digital duplicates of people that can conduct real time commerce through a smart phone is incredible. Leveraging a celebrity’s brand and this technology is a natural fit. I’m happy to not only be on the Board of Advisors but also to be an investor in the company as well.”

From the biggest shopping malls and office buildings to the most dynamic resort hotels. Today, we live in a world where physical spaces and technology are becoming more and more connected and seamless. The sky is the limit for the HumaGram™ application, in merchandise displays, events and consumer interaction. The work, so far, has been eye-opening and I look forward to seeing the company continue its path of success. I am pleased to be on the Board of Advisors and look forward to being a meaningful contributor to this company.”
