Video Creation Platform Wochit Adds Stringr Video Marketplace’s Content Catalogue to Extensive Library of Pre-Cleared Video Assets
Partnership provides media brands direct access to hyperlocal and on-demand content from 25,000-plus videographers nationwide
NEW YORK, NY(10 Oct 2016)
Video creation platform Wochit today announces a partnership with leading video marketplace Stringr that adds even more content to Wochit’s already extensive library of assets from Reuters, Getty, Bloomberg and more. The vast catalogue of videos shot by a nationwide network of videographers provides Wochit platform users access to a greater selection of video and the ability to request on-demand footage.
With this agreement, publishers, media companies and content creators will have access to the 30,000-plus new videos covering local and national news and events from Stringr’s network of 25,000 videographers across the United States.
“With our similar dedication to giving media companies the ability to quickly provide quality video, Stringr and Wochit are a natural match,” stated Lindsay Stewart, CEO of Stringr. “We’re excited about our partnership, bringing more exposure to our network of videographers while offering Wochit’s customers with an even greater selection of assets.”
Added Dror Ginzberg, CEO and co-founder of Wochit, “For our media partners, producing timely content is critical to their success. Stringr boosts our content library and resolves the issue that you simply cannot have someone shooting video in every place that news is happening. With our combined offering, media companies have a powerful new way to provide audiences the most timely and relevant video content.”
