"The addition of Sympatico.ca to our web video distribution network dramatically increases the potential audience for our clients' web video content," says Tim Griffin, Director, Product Management, Multimedia Group.

The only Canadian newswire company to distribute video content to Sympatico.ca, CNW now offers web video clients unparalleled reach for their video news. As online video audiences continue to grow, it is especially important for clients to distribute their videos as widely as possible.

"We feel that this new partnership with CNW - which complements our already established CNW news release feed - is another great way to keep our viewers informed."

CNW's XHTML-powered newswire feed paves the way for the simultaneous distribution of text news releases and multimedia such as photos and videos directly into newsroom editorial terminals and web distribution points. Combined with CNW's web video distribution network, which includes Newswire.ca, the most frequently used bilingual news release site in Canada, Sympatico.ca and the most important video sharing sites such as YouTube, CNW offers clients' video content a potential audience reach in the millions.
