The companies will swap a 4.9% interest in each other, allowing for Artivision to take a stake in 212Db and its Play Gig-it platform. Artivision will also license to 212Db their companies' video advertising and facial recognition technology which will allow Artivision a new platform for cross promotion and the acquisition of new users. 212Db will receive a 4.9% stake in Artivision as well as a License agreement to Artivision of its Facebook Game Play Gig-it and other new projects in development for Asia. Artivision's license will allow it to promote and expand the Play Gig-it platform into all of Asia. The transaction between the two companies values both Artivision and 212Db at a 100 million dollar valuation.

"Artivision Technologies has a proprietary new advertisement format serving technology for videos that does not lower user experience during the insertions of the advertisements. 212Db users will experience this new technology which makes the alliance between Artivision Technologies and 212Db a winning combination," states Mr. Soh Sai Kiang Philip, Chairman of Artivision Technologies Ltd.

212Db will grant Artivision an exclusive license to its video library and its online social media platform Play Gig-It, the world's first 3D concert game created for Facebook that brings together social media, music, fashion and gaming.

212Db's initial content and game platform offering, Play Gig-it is changing the way music lovers interact with Facebook, giving members a new way to purchase and download music while providing a new revenue stream for affiliated artists. Players create a fully customizable 3D concert with music either uploaded from a personal playlist or downloaded directly from the Play Gig-It cloud, which they then post, share, and invite friends and fans to become spectators of. The customization includes choosing the concert venue, music, sponsors, opening acts, wardrobes, stage lighting and backup dancers. More than 70 artists have partnered with Play Gig-It - making it the largest artist supported music game in history - including Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Tyga, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, Nas, 2 Chainz, Jeremih, Brandy, Flo Rida, Miguel, Soulja Boy, T-Pain, Sean Kingston, French Montana, Melanie Fiona, Vado, The Dream, Nengo Flow, J Alverez and many more.

212Db intends on launching at the end of January a new platform that the current game as well as other games will reside on. The new platform will allow for 212Db to expand its existing music and artist based platform worldwide, capture a new audience of users as well as allow developers access to its API.

John Acunto Founder and CEO of 212Db states: "We are pleased to announce our partnership with Artivision. The alliance of our forward-thinking technologies will assist both companies in expanding their product offerings and reaching new users.

Expanding our platform to Asia is our top priority in 2014, we look forward to the alliance." John Acunto continues, "The new platform launching in a few weeks is really going to be a game changer in terms of music distribution, gaming and social networks. Bringing this new platform to Asia and establishing a great partner like Artivision will further allow both of us to expand our user base and expose users to new ways to interact with music."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
