Reuters and Grabyo have announced a global partnership that enables news organisations, broadcasters and publishers to remotely edit and publish live video from Reuters Connect in real-time.
It means Reuters customers will be able to use the Grabyo platform for immediate recording, clipping and distribution to any destination, be it television or digital.
The Grabyo platform also enables users to remotely access live broadcasts as well as previous broadcasts. The service supports any live events broadcast on the Reuters Connect platform, with a simple set-up within Grabyo for remote access to the content, which can be localised, with custom graphics and branding for owned and operated platforms.
Users will also have the option to create additional video packages from a live Reuters Connect broadcast using Grabyo’s browser-based live editing tools. Edits can include multiple assets, audio files, transitions and graphics and can be captioned in real-time using automated speech recognition.
“With more and more of our customers around the world forced to work from home, Reuters is constantly seeking ways to help them adapt and face a new set of challenges,” said Nick Cohen, global head of product, Core News Services, Reuters. “Partnering with remote platforms such as Grabyo helps us to ensure our customers’ live news teams can continue their critical work without interruption.”
Gareth Capon, CEO, Grabyo, added: “We are pleased to offer the Grabyo services to members of Reuters Connect at this difficult time for news organisations around the world. With news teams moving to fully remote working and the increased reliance on distributed video workflows, we know there is a real need to ensure broadcasters and publishers can continue to deliver high-quality news content both live and real-time to digital audiences. The demand for real-time updates from trusted news sources is more important than ever right now.”
