Reuters launches new live video service
Reuters launched Thursday a new live video service providing real-time coverage of up to six concurrent news events for use by television broadcasters and professional video publishers.
The live video is available via the Reuters Connect platform. It allows publishers to stream live coverage to television, websites and social media platforms.
The new platform uses cloud-based delivery systems.
“This new live video service offers publishers an unprecedented amount of flexibility and builds on Reuters Connect’s already remarkable ability to help our customers tell engaging stories like never before,” said Sue Brooks, global head of product for Reuters News Agency, in a statement.
“As more and more publishers see live video as an essential part of their story-telling capabilities, we can now offer best-in-industry choice with up to six concurrent live streams. Add this to our vast video and picture archives, as well as our breaking news coverage, Reuters customers now have everything they need to tell richer stories.”
Launched in May of this year, Reuters Connect is designed to be a faster, more intelligent way for Reuters News Agency customers to source all the content they need via a single destination.
