'WSJ' Launches Video Platform
The Wall Street Journal has launched WSJ WorldStream, a global video publishing platform for short-form videos shot via smartphone by journalists from across the global Journal and Dow Jones. Each video is under a minute, and all footage is reviewed by an editor before being posted to the stream. The videos will be embedded in stories on WSJ.com. It is overseen by Wall Street Journal editorial video director Shawn Bender and real-time video deputy Mark Scheffler. Among the inaugural videos in WSJ WorldStream this week will be video from the Republican National Convention in Tampa.
