The future of clips and archives in Asia
In the latest issue of Content Asia, editors spoke to seven of the world’s leading clips and archive companies about challenges in Asia, Asia-related content, demand, trends and the adjustments they’ve had to make for a new connected environment. Among these experts, was DW’s Stefan Bliemsrieder.
What does he see as the biggest challenge in selling archive/news clips into Asia?
“Two challenges: presentation and content. Asian consumers like to watch online clips that are relevant to them and in their language. DW has started providing local language versions (e.g. Mandarin, Bahasa Indonesia) to address this audience need in selected territories. The key challenge remains in the cost of localizing our content.”

DW and the Women’s World Cup
Nigeria’s Super Falcons
The FIFA Women’s World Cup is in full gear in Germany – and a special project from DW-AKADEMIE is helping to provide more coverage to the feminine side of soccer. DW-AKADEMIE invited eight TV journalists – from Bhutan, Egypt, Palestine, Ghana, Nigeria, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico to take part in a workshop in Berlin. The results from “Reporting the Women’s World Cup 2011” have already been broadcast on ZDF (in German) and Phoenix and are now also available on the DFB website. The team also includes trainees in media design (audio and video) and will produce a total of 20 stories surrounding the Women’s World Cup.

A look at DISCOP
For our sales team, DISCOP has become one of the most important television conferences as it offers the opportunity to meet up with buyers who don’t necessarily end up at MIP. Our Director of Distribution, Petra Schneider, was interviewed for the latest edition of Video Age, which used its editorial to examine DISCOP and its potential.

“For us, DISCOP has always offered a way for our regional representatives to not only get out there and meet different buyers with different backgrounds, but also to offer us a way to get real insights into the regional media landscape. It still remains a very efficient way to meet with smaller, regional buyers.” – Petra Schneider

Here is a great post from Frank Smyth, who moderated a few of the panels at last week’s DW Global Media Forum. More than 1,600 participants showed up to exchange their ideas on human rights and the media.
Another good bunch of articles covering the event can be found on the orangelog – a European Youth Press project.
