MediaPower Previews NewsApp Service
MediaPower to launch news sharing service for broadcasters and citizen journalists
IBC 2016, RAI Amsterdam (September 9, 2016) – Media technology solutions provider MediaPower is holding a special preview of NewsApp, an upcoming news sharing service at the IBC Show. NewsApp is a premiere global news sharing service that aims to bring broadcasters, news networks, and ordinary citizens together into a more efficient and mutually beneficial news gathering process.
Evolving technology has allowed crowdsourcing to grow in unprecedented ways where connected individuals are able to share updates as they happen. This has led to the rise of citizen journalists – ordinary citizens as sources of real-time local information, allowing news coverage faster than a broadcaster can deploy its own crew, and providing unique perspectives that can make broadcast news reporting more engaging.
With this rise in citizen journalism and continuously evolving technology, MediaPower has set out to help make citizen journalism work for broadcasters and news networks by developing a news sharing service called NewsApp. NewsApp is a premiere global news sharing service that aims to bring broadcasters, news networks, and ordinary citizens together into a more efficient and mutually beneficial newsgathering process.
With NewsApp, broadcasters and news networks can augment their traditional news gathering 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.
NewsApp is featured at the MediaPower stand 7.J42 at IBC from September 9 to 13, 2016, RAI Amsterdam. To find out more, contact MediaPower at firstname.lastname@example.org .About MediaPower
