Ruptly, whose journalists have filmed more than 16,000 videos, including videos shown in over 1,000 live broadcasts last year, was honored as the ‘Best B2B [business-to-business] News Site.’

In the digital age, to be among the leaders you need to offer customers not only quality content, but also deliver it through the most up-to-date and affordable means,” said the head of Ruptly, Dinara Toktosunova, adding that the RT agency “will continue to implement the latest technologies for customers to continue receiving high-quality video news content filmed in all parts of the planet.”

The global video news agency, launched by RT in 2013, provides content for more than 700 media companies from over 50 countries. Having used drones for live broadcasts, as well as innovative 360 degree cameras, last year the agency also launched its mobile app, Ruptly Stringer, that allows access to user-generated content (UGC) from anywhere in the world almost instantly.
