Reuters has launched its Partner Marketplace, a service offering clients fully-licensed video content from a range of specialist providers, available via a single, tiered usage subscription. All partners are selected by Reuters and cover an array of topics, including animated news content, celebrity news and viral videos.
Covering topical stories and footage of breaking news events as they happen, the offering provides content complementary to Reuters output, giving a different angle on topical stories. Launch partners include:
– Next Media Animations: Offering colourful animated coverage of news.
– Hollywood.TV: A source for celebrity gossip and videos of stars, Hollywood.TV brings all the latest celebrity news, interviews, gossip and candid videos to viewers around the globe.
– Rumble: Rumble.com delivers social video news from around the world, with over 13,000 creators contributing to a portfolio of over 80,000 social and viral videos. Through the ‘Rumble Rank’ algorithm the company discovers, validates, and acquires licenses to the most important social and user-generated videos on the web.
“Reuters Partner Marketplace will help our clients enrich their coverage, save time and resources and access a growing pool of content, all through our easily accessed and dependable web-based delivery platform Media Express,” said Hristo Guertchev, senior product manager for Reuters. “Reuters carefully selects each partner to ensure that content is relevant to the needs of news organisations globally. We plan to add new partners over the next few months to further enhance our offering to clients.”
This latest offering adds to a range of solutions that Reuters News Agency provides to digital publishers and broadcasters, including Reuters-TIMA locations services, which brings clients access to studio facilities and editorial and logistical support worldwide, and Reuters Live Service PLUS (pictured) – offering four simultaneous live feeds to clients.
