Grabyo announces Reuters partnership for remote live stream publishing
Grabyo has announced a global partnership with Reuters that enables news organisations, broadcasters and publishers to remotely edit and publish live video from Reuters Connect in real-time.
With the current COVID-19 pandemic, the continued distribution of both live news broadcasts and real time content is of paramount importance.
The partnership simplifies the way distributed news teams, including those working from home, can publish and edit live video content to multiple destinations.
Reuters customers already have the ability to access live video feeds from anywhere in the world through Reuters Connect, and now they can use Grabyo for immediate recording, clipping and distribution to any destination, be it television or digital, with no prior experience required.
The agreement allows Reuters Connect customers to access Grabyo 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 access live broadcasts remotely via a web browser and search back through live streams to access the content they need. The service supports any live events broadcast on the Reuters Connect platform, with a simple set up within Grabyo for users to access the video and production tools.
Content can be localised, with users adding custom graphics and branding for owned and operated platforms, providing a simple solution for personalised news delivery to TV and digital channels.
This partnership comes at a time when audiences are utilising 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, making sure everyone stays informed and engaged.
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 video assets, audio files, audio/video transitions and graphics. The videos can also be captioned in real-time using AI-powered speech recognition tools.
