Toronto, ON – May 24, 2012 – ScribbleLive is pleased to announce the release of the ScribbleLive Advanced Content Module (ACM). ACM is the first product emerging from collaboration between ScribbleLive and The Associated Press (AP) to create better tools for real-time journalism.
The ScribbleLive ACM lets news teams create live blog posts and articles that combine different types of content such as images, video, audio, slideshows, commentary and tweets into a single post to provide a better perspective on the news without sacrificing speed.
“The ScribbleLive Advanced Content Module marks a revolution in how news organizations will produce and distribute real-time news for today’s non-stop society,” said Michael De Monte, CEO of ScribbleLive. “It has been a great honour and pleasure to work with The Associated Press and to have our technology support their exciting vision for the future of real-time news”.
AP will be using the ScribbleLive ACM to produce real-time news and syndicate it to its customers around the world. In the coming weeks, the new partnership will offer programs that include new content, software and training options for AP Wire customers.
“ScribbleLive’s base platform offered us a great starting point for running coverage and our collaboration on the ACM made it possible to integrate all media types in that coverage,” said Jim Kennedy, AP’s senior vice president for strategy and digital products. “We’re looking forward to where this can take us.”
ScribbleLive ACM builds on ScribbleLive’s LiveArticle technology and ScribbleLive LiveSyndication, developed late in 2011 through a partnership with British news agency The Press Association, to deliver rich, multi-part real-time coverage to a global audience.
Driven by the growing demand for real-time news and event coverage, ScribbleLive has established itself as the market leader in real-time content with a feature-rich platform that powers live blogging, real-time journalism and on-the-fly story telling. We also create new revenue opportunities for news organization through content syndication and advertising to drive billions of user minutes of engagement for hundreds of major digital sites around the world.
