Thomson Reuters introduced a new service for its paid B2B subscribers called Reuters Insider. What’s interesting about this is that it’s entirely video-based.  In a nutshell, Thomson Reuters plans to create and post as many as 3,000 very short webcasts each week that discuss breaking news. Once a webcast has aired the first time, it moves into a video-on-demand archive within 90 seconds. The archive is extensively indexed for searching by subscribers, who can view any webcast at any time, and tag specific webcasts as “favorites” to easy access. In addition, the webcasts will be viewable in iPhone and BlackBerry devices.  Source: Infocommerce
