New York, NY, United States, 2009/07/31 - Green Room Public Relations and Marketwire have partnered to launch MultimediaNewsCenter.com, a first-of-its-kind media distribution tool that will provide TV, radio, online and print journalists with information in their format of choice.
Multimedia Portal Provides Media Professionals With Access to Improved Multimedia News Releases, Digital Mat Releases and Other Digital Content
Green Room Public Relations and Marketwire have partnered to launch MultimediaNewsCenter.com, a first-of-its-kind media distribution tool that will provide TV, radio, online and print journalists with information in their format of choice. The announcement was made today at ExL Pharma's 5th Annual Public Relations & Communications Summit, taking place at the Pfizer World Headquarters in Manhattan, July 27-29.
MultimediaNewsCenter.com is a news portal designed for all media professionals. Unlike other multimedia news release (MNR) providers, the portal allows journalists access to, and use of, all forms of media content: TV stations can access broadcast quality B-roll and animation; radio producers can access soundbites in their preferred audio file formats; print and online reporters have access to high-resolution photos, videos and more. All content is flagged for social media for easy incorporation into blogs, websites and other new media.
MultimediaNewsCenter.com also provides journalists with a resource to store relevant information such as backgrounders, biographies, fact sheets, statistics and more.
Marketwire Vice President of Partner Relations and Media Services Bernadette Lee says, "Today, journalists are forced to do more with less. We're proud to provide journalists with yet another means to access relevant digital information at no cost that enriches their content and streamlines their workflow."
Partner and Media Strategist at Green Room Public Relations Deborah Sittig adds, "In essence, we're providing one-stop shopping for the media where they can access all forms of digital media in one place."
MultimediaNewsCenter.com can be used in conjunction with the following communications tools:
• Multimedia News Releases (MNR);
• Digital Mat Releases;
• Broadcast Public Relations (B-roll, VNR, SMTs, ANRs, RMTs);
• Internet Media Tours (IMT);
• Social Media Releases (SMR);
• Traditional Press Releases.
This partnership between Green Room PR and Marketwire offers exclusive services to media professionals that are currently unparalleled in the industry. This is the first of a multi-phased media communications rollout; additional digital enhancements are underway and expected to be launched by the end of the year.
More information regarding this partnership and sample MNRs will be available by visiting the shared Marketwire/Green Room PR table at ExL Pharma's Summit. Marketwire is the official newswire of this leading meeting for communications professionals in pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies.
