NEW YORK, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent survey conducted by PR News and PR Newswire shows that 79% of marketing and communications professionals think video is underused in PR efforts and 76% of survey takers indicated that they plan to use more multimedia in 2014.1 To support PR and marketing communications professionals as they increasingly use rich content, such as photos, infographics and videos with news releases, PR Newswire continues to make significant investments in distribution and reporting technology.

PR Newswire announced the addition of photo reporting within its Visibility Reports, which clients already have easy access to through PR Newswire's Online Member Center.  This new feature will supplement Visibility Report's well-established distribution reporting on the text portion of a release with additional insights, including:

  • Number of images distributed
  • Number of image views from the release
  • Number of image views and release downloads in total (includes both release and individual photo pick-up)

PR Newswire has also upgraded its multimedia distribution capabilities in the form of downstream rendering of video within releases. Now, more photos and videos in customer press releases will appear directly on heavily trafficked sites in PR Newswire's distribution network.  This feature can help ensure deeper engagement with target audiences regardless of where they discover rich media within PR Newswire's syndication network.
