Swedish TV technology startup Stringer Systems lands agreement with emerging US cable news network
- One America News Network empowers its US viewers to upload videos directly to its news editors
- Novel mobile app and content management solution solves key issues with user generated content – authenticity, legal compliance and swift handling
- Stringer provides cutting-edge mobile content platforms for media, marketing, recruitment and other areas of application
San Diego, California and Linköping, Sweden, May 3, 2016 – One America News Network (“OAN”), a 24/7 source of credible national and international news, has deployed a groundbreaking mobile user content platform, called “OAN Stringer” developed by Swedish TV technology startup Stringer Systems. With its new OAN Stringer iPhone and Android app, One America News Network has empowered its viewers to upload eyewitness videos directly to the network’s California and Washington, D.C. news bureaus. At the same time, Stringer’s Web-based management system and server back-end software allows One America News’ journalists to swiftly examine, rate, organize and process submitted content. While user content often found on the web and social media can be doubtful, anonymous and unclear in terms of legal ownership, One America News Network establishes a powerful end-to-end relationship with its viewers, safeguarding authenticity and full legal compliance of their submitted content.
“With high quality video phones proliferating, sometimes the best and only source of video coverage of a breaking news event is from consumers on the scene,” stated Robert Herring, Sr., CEO of One America News Network. “We’re pleased to take our viewer relationship to the next level with our new OAN Stringer iPhone and Android app. Our viewers will get a personal, safe and direct channel into our editor’s room, submitting images and videos in just a few clicks. Our editors will be able to enrich our conventional sources of news coverage with reliable viewer content fully in line with our highest journalistic standards.”
According to Andreas Riedel, CSMO of Stringer System, “We’re extremely proud to see our system pioneered by one of the fastest emerging and innovative cable news networks in the United States. Stringer provides a powerful tool for TV news desks, effectively cutting through the key issues of user generated video content – authenticity, reliability, legal compliance and time-efficient management.”
“The deployment at One America News provides powerful evidence of our platform’s performance – there is no application that could be more demanding than a news network. This makes Stringer a strong partner for any business that deals with the collection and management of user generated content; be it in media, consumer marketing and advertising or in internal communications, sales support or in casting and recruitment,” stated Riedel.
