FeedRoom, Reuters' online news channel for Iraq conflict

NEW YORK: Internet broadcaster The FeedRoom has announced the launch of Reuters Raw Video: Conflict in Iraq. The 24-hour online news channel offers ongoing coverage direct from the Persian Gulf as events unfold.

The service includes long segments of un-narrated, raw video fed via satellite by the Reuters team of television journalists on the ground in Iraq and the surrounding countries. In addition, the service delivers current events, reports narrated by Reuters journalists on the scene, and related developments from around the world.

Reuters Raw Video is available at and via Reuters desktop terminals. It was built and is operated by The FeedRoom, whose digital technology systems capture Reuters video before it has appeared on television and makes it available immediately to online viewers around the clock.

Around 20 Reuters editorial staff remain in Baghdad, and Reuters intends to continue to staff the story from Baghdad throughout the conflict. Executive VP and Global Head of Reuters Media Rich Sabreen says, "Reuters is all about being first with the most complete coverage of every story. Reuters Raw Video enables us to extend that promise into the world of online video, marrying our world-class editorial skills with the best-in-class capabilities of The FeedRoom."

The service is at the moment undergoing a free trial period run. The companies intend to turn this into a for-payment service in the near future. This will be managed by The FeedRoom through its partnership with the Yaga-iBill Digital Commerce Solution.

In partnership with blue-chip companies including Reuters, NBC, Tribune Company, Playboy and Miramax Films, the FeedRoom Network of news, entertainment and corporate sites delivers more than 20 million streams of video per month to millions of viewers worldwide, the release claims.
