The NewsMarket acquires Mediaseed


Medialink, the parent company of Mediaseed, has been acquired by The NewsMarket.

Medialink was recently acquired by The NewsMarket, the leading online distribution platform used by the world’s media.  By combining services, we can now bring you one of the most comprehensive online libraries of multimedia content to support your newsgathering efforts.  Now you will have access to content from hundreds of global organizations, in streaming, broadcast, and HD-quality, that is free for your editorial use.

We profiled Mediaseed during our coverage of NAB 2008. The service allowed users to quickly find and download video clips for use on air and online through a variety of formats.

The new partnership will combine resources of the two operations and provide more content for free to news organizations.
