Today we have announced a global partnership with Reuters that enables news organizations, broadcasters and publishers to remotely edit and publish live video from Reuters Connect in real-time.
With the increased reliance on remote working, Reuters customers already have the ability to access live video feeds from anywhere in the world through Reuters Connect, but now they can use the Grabyo platform for immediate recording, clipping and distribution to any destination, be it television or digital.
The partnership simplifies the way distributed news teams, including those working from home, can remotely edit and publish live video content to multiple destinations. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, the continued distribution of both live news broadcasts and real-time content is of paramount importance. The agreement allows Reuters Connect customers to access our platform at a discounted rate, ensuring customers have access to cloud-based tools to maintain coverage of live news from a remote location.
By using Grabyo, Reuters Connect users will be able to remotely access live broadcasts and go back through previous content. 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.
Content can be localized, with custom graphics and branding for owned and operated platforms, providing a simple solution for personalized news delivery to digital channels.
This partnership comes at a time when audiences are utilizing linear television, websites, mobile apps and social media for live news updates. As news events continue to move at a rapid pace, broadcasters want to make sure they can get updates to the audience wherever they are and ensure they stay informed and engaged.
“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.”
Grabyo provides the option to create additional video packages from a live Reuters Connect broadcast using its 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.
