Dinara Toktosunova, CEO of Ruptly, commented: “Ruptly PASS brings the greatest value to subscribers on the market today. We have innovated and changed the way we provide video content to support the growth of emerging and mid-sized digital publishers. By making our content more accessible, we’ve delivered an unprecedented market-breaking subscription model of only 12.50 euros per month; providing access to high-quality video without the high cost. We hope this will inspire talented publishers to strengthen their production, experiment with new video formats, and of course grow their audiences.”

Ruptly publishes an average of 40 new video stories daily, provided by a 3,000-strong network of video journalists from over 100 countries. In addition to video-on-demand, around five live events are streamed each day via the platform. A collection of award-winning 360-degree videos are included in the Ruptly PASS subscription.

“Our journalists are delivering stories that resonate with audiences around the world,” Toktosunova said. “We take state-of-the-art technology and make it user-friendly. By pioneering multi-feed live video streaming to client social media pages, we have simplified live delivery to a few clicks. We made panoramic video accessible via download, enabling dozens of media organizations to try out the format for the first time. All the while we continue reducing the need for specialist technical facilities on the subscriber side.”
