Specialist to Provide Video Infrastructure Backbone to New Video News Agency RUPTLY, member of RT media family

“We are proud to have worked on this video news venture, as for many end users, RUPTLY’s content will provide an unconventional look at news content, all from different perspectives and previously unheard voices," said Ray Mia, CEO of Streamworks.

Streamworks International (http://www.streamworksint.com), a global specialist in live video, has partnered to become its strategic content delivery service for RUPTLY, a new video news agency. As part of this new partnership, Streamworks will design, build and manage a video news content management delivery system for RUPTLY, as well as provide streaming videos to the agency’s commercial customers.

With the opening of this new video agency, Streamworks will be a key partner of RUPTLY’s launch, as the new news video agency will be the only one to shoot, edit and distribute video on a “digital first” basis. As part of the agreement, Streamworks will supply software applications, proprietary hardware and platforms to RUPTLY to enable customers to access this new content. The information for this service will be accessible on the agency’s website. http://www.RUPTLY.tv

"It is always a rare occasion when any news organization builds a new newsgathering and news-distribution infrastructure from the ground up, but it’s even rarer for an outside service provider to be a part of that build,” said Ray Mia, CEO of Streamworks. “Through this partnership, Streamworks is not merely providing streaming and video management services to RUPTLY, but will part of its development from the very beginning. We are proud to have worked with RUPTLY on this video news venture, as ultimately for many end users, RUPTLY’s content will provide an unconventional look at news content, all from different perspectives and previously unheard voices.”
