Bloomberg adding CEO interviews to web
Adam Plesser of Beet.TV writes Monday about how Bloomberg is adding a series of video interviews with well-known CEOs to its web site.
Plesser wrote, “Day and night, through almost every timezone, Bloomberg creates a massive amount of video content through its 10 networks in seven languages which are distributed live, 24 hours a day on cable, satellite and online.Â Additionally, the company produces video for the Bloomberg terminal, the $20,000 per year desktop device used by finance professionals.
“Beet.TV has learned that Bloomberg News has put in place a system to convert much of its linear programming (which is free, btw)Â into distinct, searchable clips.Â Â
“The immediate plan is to place this material on bloomberg.com.
“Placing content on the public Internet is something of a change for Bloomberg.Â The company has enjoyed dramatic growth and profitability with its closed, proprietary platform.Â It wasn’t until 2006 that Bloomberg ungated some of its rich content.”
