Singapore – BBC World News is launching a new series of 24 short features around the role of technology in the world of business. Called Technology of Business, the TV series will be sponsored by Xerox. The series of four-minute vignettes will be presented by a number of different BBC reporters. It will examine the ways in which businesses use technology to increase productivity and profitability, with episodes dealing with subjects such as the role of social media in enabling companies to learn from their customers. Content around the series, including text and video, will also be found online on a special section of BBC.com at: www.bbc.com/techbusiness . The sponsorship will take the form of opening and closing 10” billboards around the vignettes. Xerox will also take on exclusive advertising on the Technology of Business section on BBC.com. As part of the agreement, BBC World News is also providing Xerox with syndication and distribution permissions to the series, which will be managed by MEC. This will enable editorial content to be published on social media channels, and news and technology sites.
