Deutsche Welle – one of the world’s largest public broadcasters – has begun uploading five new weekly series to the TelVue Connect Media Exchange. DW has cherry-picked some of its most compelling news and feature magazines on current affairs, culture, science, environment and health issues. Media Exchange members will be able to preview shows through the TelVue Connect interface, and after signing Deutsche Welle’s one-time licensing agreement, download these programs – at no cost – for re-broadcast. TelVue Connect automatically converts the downloads to match each station’s broadcast format needs. Because many of the programs have news value, all programs must be used within 7 days of their Monday postings. A new show will be available each week.
Fans of DW’s English-language programming are familiar with the German public broadcaster’s rich variety of programs – including news, documentaries and weekly feature shows such as “Focus on Europe”, “Global 3000” and more. These programs will be organized in the Media Exchange as Series, so that subscribers can get automatic notifications whenever a new episode is added.
Deutsche Welle USA is hoping for your feedback to evaluate this program exchange workflow over the next few weeks and will be making technical adjustments based on user feedback between now and January 1. Please contact Greg Fitzgerald in Boston at firstname.lastname@example.org with any technical and program issues or questions.
If you need a Media Exchange account, submit this request form to TelVue and you will have access to hundreds of freely-available programs from a growing collection of publicly-minded syndicators.
