The market for video news is changing and consumer demand for video news on all platforms has never been stronger. As the world’s leading video news agency, Associated Press is committed to helping its customers understand and deal with the changes in consumer demand for news.
AP, in partnership with Deloitte released the first in-depth study into video news consumption in a report entitled 'White Smoke: The new era for video news' on April 16, 2013.
The fieldwork was carried out by Gfk in Germany, Spain and the UK using an online study with representative samples of 1,500 respondents per country.
The report looks at consumer demand for video news content and the implications for broadcasters and online publishers. It highlights the increasingly important role that video plays in the online news user experience and provides insights into market behaviour, consumption across platforms, differences in consumption by demographic, attitudes to advertising and finally the role video can play in strengthening loyalty and engagement to a news brand.
This presentation was shared at Digital Media Europe 2013 by Associated Press and Deloitte and summarises some of the key findings of the report.
