viEUws.eu : explaining Europe with videos!

Submitted by on April 22, 2011 – 17:34No Comment

The web­site viEUws.eu is a new com­mu­ni­ca­tion con­cept ini­ti­ated on the 15th of March 2010. This web­site is owned and man­aged by viEUws SA, a Bel­gian com­pany, which “only owns and man­ages viEUws.eu”, explains Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Man­ager of viEUws.eu Tri­umf Tahiri.

The cre­ation of a Euro­pean qual­ity news

The goal of this news con­cept of dig­i­tal forum for Euro­pean debates was “first to cre­ate qual­ity news on EU pol­icy devel­op­ments by Brus­sels based jour­nal­ists who are experts in their field”, points out Tri­umf Tahiri. They also have another goal by cre­at­ing a new way to dis­cuss Euro­pean affairs, “encour­ag­ing all stake­hold­ers to use a new and inno­v­a­tive tool through the dig­i­tal plat­form”. They first focused on cre­at­ing con­tent and are now start­ing a cam­paign to pro­mote their plat­form to a very tar­geted audience.

A totally inde­pen­dent media

All the videos pro­duced and broad­casted are non-partisan. “We do not receive sub­si­dies from the EU con­trary to many other EU medias”, main­tains Tri­umf Tahiri. They are inde­pen­dent in their edi­to­r­ial choices and there is no con­nec­tion to any other group.

Twelve peo­ple are cur­rently work­ing for the web­site and they man­age the entire oper­a­tion, from logis­tics to post pro­duc­tion. Out of those twelve peo­ple, nine are journalists.

Only video and audio con­tent

On viEUws.eu you can only find audio and video con­tent. The idea is “first and fore­most videos on the dig­i­tal plat­form. The increas­ing use and the grow­ing impor­tance of video as a media tool are and have been fore­cast to change the com­mu­ni­ca­tion”, Tri­umf Tahiri says. But they do wel­come writ­ten con­tent, pro­duce or deliver tran­script of some of the video interviews.

For a one-year-old media, “the num­ber of vis­i­tors is quite sat­is­fy­ing and this num­ber con­tin­u­ously grows”, con­cludes Tri­umf Tahiri.
