The Dainik Bhaskar product and engineering team have focused on growing an organic, highly engaged and loyal digital-user-base, who access their diverse digital properties and consume well-reported and fact-checked quality content daily.
Video is one of the most popular formats for the India Tiers 1, 2 and 3 (Bharat) market**. Dainik Bhaskar believes that users nowadays prefer to consume content in video and visual formats along with text formats. Dainik Bhaskar's large team of journalists and reporters specialize in text content due to their Print background, however, the digital newsrooms needed to adopt a Video inclusive approach alongside text-based-formats to reach and engage with a much larger audience.
The process for Video News creation for journalists and reporters was manual, inefficient and cumbersome, leading to a suboptimal end-user experience due to a delay in the creation and availability of video news content.
Dainik Bhaskar found that existing solutions in the market were neither designed nor sufficient for their needs as a Digital-first newsroom.
