Private Event: Beamups Launch – The New Global News Marketplace

Thursday 11th June, 2009

Is professional news journalism looking at death by a thousand budget cuts? Or are trends in foreign news demanding innovative ways of generating income for everyone in the news industry?

On Thursday 11 June, Will Daws Exec producer of PlumPictures, will explain how Beamups’ revolutionary online news marketplace creates revenues and opportunities by breaking down traditional barriers in news distribution. He will be introduced by Dean Stewart, Beamups CEO – and former Senior VP for News Corp Europe – as well as veteran cameramen and co-founders Yosi Romano and Boaz Eshtai.

Beamups’ winning formula bridges the gap between news publishers with decreasing budgets and professional reporters looking for increased income. Both sides of the news industry benefit by meeting online to buy and sell news video and stills from one another.

As a rich source of news content, Beamups offers a wide range of original news items from around the world. With no subscription fee, editors can search our website for free and start buying exclusive news video and photos a-la-carte. With stories available per item, editors can meet their agendas on time and in budget. Moreover, Beamups enables broadcasters to monetize archive content. Our buyers include international broadcasters, online publishers, producers and news agencies – all looking for new stories and angles.

Beamups launched in April 2009 in the Middle East and is now moving its reach to the UK.  Our international pool of professional content providers is growing daily as freelance video journalists and photographers, local journalists, news agencies, production companies and broadcasters upload news items from around the world ready for broadcast.

On Beamups, content providers – big and small – get free, instant access to an international distribution network and have real ownership over their work and business. By keeping copyrights, revenues are boosted as news items can be sold repeatedly to news outlets across the globe.
