The Al Jazeera Media Network has adopted the Live Video Cloud from Make.TV to build a newsroom in the cloud for its United Nations bureau.

al jaz 24 sept 2018Make.TV’s Live Video Cloud enables Al Jazeera to ingest live interviews and events recorded and stored on-site alongside content from various mediums. Used for both live and recorded content, Live Video Cloud claims to simplify content acquisition and curation, enabling Al Jazeera to record and schedule audio and video media, and route the streams to its Arabic and English newsrooms for further distribution.

“We are constantly covering breaking news and can’t afford hardware failures or storage limitations when producing live segments. Working with Make.TV guarantees that we can focus on our mission to uncover stories as they arise, safe in the knowledge that we can trust our infrastructure to work perfectly and accommodate storage and bandwidth needs we can’t predict,” said Miljenko Logozar, chief broadcast architect at Al Jazeera.

Make.TV’s Live Video Cloud opens pathways for video to be shared between content creators, producers, programmers and advertisers, to get breaking news content quickly, handle remote production and deliver localised content across broadcast, online and social media networks.

“Being the first to deliver great content is absolutely crucial for Al Jazeera,” said Andreas Jacobi, CEO and co-founder at Make.TV. “With Live Video Cloud, we are helping create a dynamic workflow that enables live production with decentralised, agile teams that can report on any story, anywhere in the world. This opens the door to a new era of news reporting that will be faster, more collaborative and more easily managed.”
