Eight broadcasters launch biggest drama collaboration in Europe
A new collaboration, named New8, brings together eight public service broadcasters from North-Western Europe to exchange drama. As a partner, VRT is able to expand its content offer and help strengthen the impact of public broadcasters in the international media sector.
VRT's multifunctional studio: a view to the future
VRT introduces a brand new, innovative studio to broadcast its current affairs programmes. In time, entertainment programmes will also use the creative possibilities of the new studio. To stay relevant in a rapidly changing media landscape, VRT fully explores the potential of virtual technologies for broadcasting.
New VRT building takes shape: the first stone has been laid
Under the approving eye of VRT CEO Frederik Delaplace and chairman of the Board of Directors Frieda Brepoels, the first stone for the new VRT building was laid. Flemish Minister-President Jan Jambon, Brussels State Secretary Ans Persoons and Flemish Minister of Media Benjamin Dalle also attended the event. The first stone not only symbolises the start of construction, but also a future that fully focuses on innovation in media production and technology. VRT is scheduled to move in 2026.
Unlocking media for all: enhancing media accessibility through technology
Interaction on YouTube, watching videos on the news app of VRT, or listening to podcasts on the audio and video platform VRT MAX. There are countless ways to experience media. And those experiences go a lot further than traditional TV and radio broadcasts. But how do you experience media if you have a visual or hearing impairment? This is where experts and technology come together.
Innovation without borders: VRT unites 50 media organisations in international network
In a world where borders between countries, sectors and audiences are increasingly blurred, the impact of a network is undeniable. International cooperation is therefore essential in the media sector. Together with RTBF, the broadcaster of the Walloon-Brussels Federation, VRT brings together 50 international media organisations within the network Future Media Hubs.
Seeds and Growth for Media: empowering young media professionals to build start-ups
Together with MediaNet Flanders and Thomas More, VRT collaborates on a new accelerator project: Seeds and Growth for Media. With this initiative, the public broadcaster wants to help in building and growing new start-ups over the next three years. In the process, their technologies will be tested on the production floor and they will receive support to grow abroad. These collaborations remain essential for media organisations to innovate in an international media landscape.
