Reuters today announced the launch of Reuters Live Stream, an online service providing live video access to breaking and scheduled news events from around the world. The service was designed for easy integration with newsrooms, and puts editorial control in the hands of online publishers.
In an increasingly digital world, Reuters Live Stream provides a faster, cost-effective option to the traditional satellite news distribution method. Video content is also compatible with mobile devices, including tablet technology.
"Publishers asked for customizable news video, and that's exactly what we are delivering," said Chris Ahearn, president of media, Thomson Reuters. "You will continue to see Reuters delivering tools that increase efficiency, reduce cost, and drive revenue. We are working hard to meet the growing demands of the media industry."
Reuters Live Stream is the newest component of the comprehensive coverage and delivery platform Reuters is building to meet the diverse needs of publishers and broadcasters around the world. It represents one additional step toward one stop fulfilment of our Reuters client needs worldwide.
The Tribune Company, the second largest US publisher, and Fairfax Media, a leading Australian print and online media company, were the first to adopt Reuters Live Stream, which carried live coverage of the royal wedding.
