Washington, D.C., Jan. 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TV Worldwide, (www.TVWorldwide.com), since 1999, a pioneering web-based global TV network, announced today that it has been selected to produce the fourth quadrennial "eNaugural" webcast, live from the All American Inaugural Ball, (www.AllAmericanBall.com) as part of the Second Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama, Sunday, January 20 beginning at 9:00 PM ET at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.
Building on the success of TV Worldwide's production of the 2001, 2005 and 2009 eNaugural webcasts from Inaugural Balls, the webcast will again be featured on TV Worldwide's Internet TV Channel for troops and veterans, USVets.TV (www.USVets.TV ). The webcast is being produced to enable global on-line participation from U.S. troops stationed around the world, who will receive video greetings from event attendees. Webcast coverage will also feature Ball entertainment coverage including Leonard, Coleman & Blunt, former vocalists for the Temptations, the Drifters and the Platters. In addition, the webcast will highlight the presentation of the All American Hero Awards and behind-the-scenes interviews at the Ball.

The eNaugural webcast is made possible thanks to sponsorship support from Self-Solutions LLC (www.SelfSolutions.com), Newtek, (www.Newtek.com) and PSAV, (www.psav.com). Newtek's "Tricaster" will be used for the live webcast while PSAV and the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill are donating the high speed Internet connection.

These "All American Heroes", including Dennis Butts, Todd Bowers, Monte Bernardo, Justin Constantine and Congressman Mike McIntyre are among a prestigious list of heroes who will receive the All American Hero Award at the Ball.
