What is a Multimedia News Release?
A Multimedia News Release (MNR) is a dynamic HTML5 page with the ability to encompass text, images, video, audio, documents, live Twitter & Facebook feeds and much more. PR Newswire's MNR makes the distribution and sharing of multimedia content extremely simple and uncomplicated. Below is further information to help you get started with your MNR.
We provide Online Video Distribution to over 60 of the leading online video portals. To get the best pickup we recommend a few things:
Ensure your video is less than 5 minutes. This focuses your video's message, cuts down on page-load times, and is much easier for the viewer to digest.
That your video is in English, PR Newswire can offer distribution in multiple languages (English subtitles recommended); however, most of our portals are global. English language videos will maximise pick-up.
Images can make your story come alive. Images can be located in various locations on the MNR page based on your chosen MNR design, all Images should have a title, caption and file name to allow for optimum engagement.
Titles: 100 Characters including spaces
Captions - 250 Characters including spaces
Acceptable File Formats:
We recommend your photos to be 3000 pixels on the longest side and 300 dpi. We also recommend that you supply photo captions with each image which should be a maximum of 250 characters long with spaces.
These are the following formats that we will accept: JPEG, PNG, TIFF, GIF.
The Press Release
This text portion of your MNR will be the same that goes out to all of your desired distribution points. After the first paragraph of your release there will be a link to your MNR page, which users can click through to the MNR.
The idea, the sale, the product or your message should be accurately and concisely conveyed. Our editorial service will always be on hand to provide proofreading and editorial suggestions for your release.
Translations & Languages
PR Newswire's distribution service is a truly global platform. We distribute to 70+ countries in localised languages where possible. Translations can take up to 48 hours to complete. Alternatively, clients are encouraged to supply their own translations for their MNR.
Language toggles can be added to any MNR to easily switch and view your text in different languages. Each toggle can be displayed as a link, which replaces one language with another. We currently offer the language toggle in 23 different languages, listed below.
Chinese (Simplified), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (UK), English (US), Finnish, French (Canadian), French (European), German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovakian, Spanish (European), Spanish (LatAm), Turkish and Swedish.
