Reuters launches Latin American video service
by Chris Roush
Reuters announced Monday the launch of Spanish Video Reports, a new online video service developed specifically for Latin American consumer audiences.
The service includes delivery of 10 to 15 videos each day, carefully selected by Reuters editors at local bureaus in the United States and across Latin America, including Mexico, Argentina and Chile.
“Collaboration, service and support are vital to success in an increasingly competitive and volatile global marketplace,” said Owen Wyatt, head of video at Reuters, in a statement. ”All our new online video products reinforce this approach. We’re reducing the production time and resources required on our clients’ side, and helping them become more cost effective.”
This service is part of Reuters ongoing investment and global strategy to increase its local language product offerings. In 2010 Reuters launched the Reuters Arabic News Video service, followed by the German News Video service in 2011.
Further local language product launches from Reuters are in development for 2012 and beyond.
