Social Video Creation Platform Wochit Brings Fresco News’ Mobile Journalism to Growing Content Library

May 18, 2017

Social video creation platform Wochit and Fresco News, a network connecting mobile journalists to newsrooms worldwide, announced a partnership that will add Fresco’s vetted library of crowdsourced news content to Wochit’s library of pre-cleared assets. The deal will benefit media companies using the Wochit platform by giving real-time access to photos and videos captured on-the-scene, wherever trending stories are happening.

The content from Fresco’s 130,000-plus mobile journalists further augments Wochit’s collection of up-to-the-minute video and images from sources globally. Fresco’s ability to instantly dispatch mobile journalists to a news scene allows publishers to reach and engage audiences with the most timely content possible, a significant competitive advantage in the crowded media landscape.

By introducing Fresco to Wochit, whose customers produce more than 30,000 videos every month, local crowdsourced news can now be scaled up to an international audience and distributed to millions, an unprecedented feat in widespread, mobile coverage.
