A combined total of eleven newspapers and television stations using various publishing systems have accepted and renewed agreements to use Field59’s video platform to publish their online video.

Madison, WI – Field59, a premier online video management system for live streaming, video-on-demand and video distribution solutions, today announced new partnerships and renewals with 11 newspapers and television stations that plan to use Field59’s video platform to power their digital video efforts.

Field59 welcomes five Calkins Media newspapers, WEHCO’s Whole Hog Sports, El Vocero, and KTBS, while renewing relationships with White Mountain Publishing and Rockfleet Broadcasting’s stations WJFW and WVII.

Calkins Media’s newspapers have pioneered OTT (Over-The-Top) online video content in the newspaper space, and found the perfect partner with Field59’s video delivery solution in late 2016.

“We’ve been extremely pleased with the transition to Field59,” said Jake Volcsko, Digital Media and Marketing Director of the Calkins Media newspaper group. “Field59’s platform allows us to easily and quickly distribute video to multiple OTT devices as well as desktop and mobile platforms. We’re looking forward to continuing our innovative relationship, and discovering new ways to reach more viewers.”

Rockfleet Broadcasting has used Field59’s video solutions since 2012 for video on demand, live streaming and 24/7 video capturing and editing. “Field59 continues to be a reliable and flexible online video partner”, said Steve Shanks, Vice President & General Manager. “They really understand our needs as news producers.”

Additionally, Field59 has secured recurring live streaming business from events for corporate, startup accelerator, and educational customers, such as Exact Sciences, gener8tor, and WSGNA. Last week, Field59 live streamed and recorded a series of talks at the WSGNA (Wisconsin Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates) 2017 Spring Conference in Milwaukee. The live stream was watched by viewing parties in Wisconsin and Kentucky, and the recorded videos will be offered to earn credits for continuing gastroenterological education for nurses and practitioners.

“Field59 has helped WSGNA offer video as a way to allow nurses to continue their education, while accommodating their oftentimes busy schedules and lives. Being able to watch a live stream of conferences, or individual videos after the event, has made a difference to our membership”, said Margaret Hauser-Ullman, Chair of the WSGNA Educational Committee. “Field59 has always been helpful in furthering our goals, and it’s allowed us to pioneer a new way of learning for our society.”

Field59 works with any CMS, and serves television and radio broadcasters, newspapers and other premium content media companies with video capturing, editing, encoding, captioning, live streaming, delivery, and management solutions. “Working with customers that understand the value of video allows us to evolve with them and for them,” said Derek Gebler, CEO and Founder of Field59. “After a decade of working with and developing video technology for publishers in the news industry, our team is expertly suited to lead the way into the next decade.”
