Stringr, the premium video marketplace for custom, high-quality, video content, has announced its launch into the UK. Through this expansion, UK based broadcasters, publishers and brands can now source, edit and publish custom footage from 80,000+ videographers across the globe.
Stringr has already recruited 3,000 local videographers across major cities and remote areas, exemplifying the company’s ability to enable media companies to source video in time sensitive and geographically challenged situations. Later this year, Stringr plans to launch similar recruitment efforts across the continent.
“Stringr helps the largest media organisations in the US source custom video,” said Lindsay Stewart, CEO and Co-Founder of Stringr. “Offering the same service of getting video fast and at a scalable price point to companies in the UK is a natural extension of what we already do, and a part of our larger plan to roll out to the rest of Europe over the next year.”
By utilising the Stringr platform, customers are able to address various industry challenges, including reduced newsroom budgets, geographical hurdles, as well as the challenges that come with a 24/7 news cycle. Professional and amateur videographers contributing to Stringr’s content library ensure that media organisations are able to quickly access premium content, and ultimately report on news that is most relevant for their audiences. Additionally, Stringr recently announced the availability of its livestreaming function, giving customers the ability to request live video content from anywhere.
