ITN today unveils a new corporate identity designed to project the company?s
emergence as a global multimedia content business, building on its role as the UK?s
leading commercial news broadcaster.
ITN also announces that it has received new investment of over ?1m from its existing
shareholders to accelerate the growth in its key multimedia units. Further detail is
included in the Operational Update below.
From today ITN?s business units are as follows: ITN News (which includes ITV
News, ITV London, Channel 4 News, More4 News); ITN Source (formerly ITN
Archive); ITN On (formerly ITN Multimedia and ITN Radio); ITN Consulting; ITN
Factual; Visual Voodoo.
ITN?s new branding gives each division its own identity and colour. It also
emphasises the unifying purpose of each business within ITN to deliver the right
content to our customers at the right time.
The new investment will accelerate the growth of the archive business, ITN
Source, and the 3G and broadband business, ITN On. Turnover for ITN Source and
ITN On has trebled over the past two years and is currently growing at around
35% year on year.
ITN Source is one of the world?s leading commercial providers of moving image
content, with over 700,000 hours of footage across a diverse range of collections
including British Path?, Reuters, Granada, Channel 4, Fox News and Fox
Movietone. ITN Source performed strongly in 2005. The ongoing digitisation of
the business?s most popular content will drive further growth and efficiencies in
customer service. In January 2006, ITN Source announced a partnership with
Google, providing content for its Video Store. In April 2006, ITN announced a
project with Sony to create an internet-based access system that will provide
desktop access to a large selection of the iconic footage managed by ITN Source.
