NewsApp service shared

IBC showgoers can preview MediaPower’s NewsApp, a news sharing service that aims to bring broadcasters, news networks and citizen journalists together in an efficient way.

According to MediaPower, NewsApp will let broadcasters and news networks augment their traditional newsgathering process by crowdsourcing news footage ‘from the very people who are present when breaking news happens’.

For citizen journalists, NewsApp (in the form of a mobile app) gives them a platform to reach news networks and ‘incent them to capture’ and submit news in real time, said the company.
