LiveAuctioneers Launches YouTube Channel with Preview Coverage of First-ever On-site Auction at Graceland

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Graceland is hallowed ground, not only to those who revere the memory of the man who made it famous – American icon Elvis Presley – but also to millions of fans worldwide who still think of Presley as the one and only "King of Rock and Roll." Interest in authenticated items that belonged to the superstar entertainer, or that were worn by him onstage, has never waned. This has led to an extraordinary, first-time event: the Aug. 14, 2014 auction of a famous Elvis collection, to be held on the grounds of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

Immediately after Graceland Authenticated's marketing team confirmed that LiveAuctioneers (www.LiveAuctioneers.com) had been chosen to provide Internet live-bidding services for the auction, the Manhattan-based company started formulating a plan to combine a trip to Graceland with the formal launch of its new LiveAuctioneers YouTube channel.

A three-person video crew selected by executive producer and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lilibet Foster traveled to Graceland, where they toured the 1939 mansion and viewed items from the auction, many of which were consigned by Australian super-fan Greg Page. (Note: None of the auction items are from the Graceland Archives, which remain the property of Lisa Marie Presley.)

The exciting Graceland videos produced for LiveAuctioneers' YouTube channel offer a privileged look at highlights from the upcoming Auction at Graceland.

The video team's tour was led by Angie Marchese, Graceland's Director of Archives, who provided the backstories for several key auction items: a Tupelo, Mississippi library card with the earliest known Elvis signature, a 1975 Martin D-28 guitar that Elvis gave to one of his bodyguards, and stage-worn jewelry, including a fabulous gold, diamond and ruby lion pendant that was one of his favorite pieces.

Each auction item is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Additional Graceland videos will appear soon on LiveAuctioneers' YouTube channel. Watch for:

  • A Private Tour of Graceland – LiveAuctioneers' team tours the fabled mansion Elvis called home, including a visit to the Hawaiian-themed Jungle Room and the Racquetball Building, which is filled with many of Elvis' stage outfits and awards.
  • Elvis' Cars & Motorcycles – Auction Tip: See Lot 62, the 1977 maroon and silver Cadillac Seville V-8 Automatic that was the last personal car Presley purchased for personal use and the last Cadillac he ever drove.

"If you're an Elvis fan – and who isn't – you'll love the YouTube programming we've prepared from our team's Graceland visit. It's a sneak peek at some amazing artifacts and an exploration of the Graceland mansion with Graceland staff," said Julian R. Ellison, CEO of LiveAuctioneers.

LiveAuctioneers' YouTube channel is a professionally produced online entertainment resource whose shows include The Daily Bid, which focuses on fascinating auction discoveries, and other regular shows about headline-makers from the art, auction and collecting world.

Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda.

Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity.

Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
