Digital Content

Rwandan artists and content developers now have a new avenue to showcase and exhibit their work following the launch of a new video streaming site.

The platform, www.journal.rw, developed and run by Innovation Village, a Rwanda-based creative firm, provides an avenue to share high definition video content.

Launched last week, the platform seeks to leverage digital technology to avail creative content to viewers across the world on their devices.

The platform developers say, to create it, they focused on aspects of production and quality content.

Explaining how the video streaming site works, Armand Kajangwe, the executive director of the platform, told The New Times that it can be accessed via any device connected to the Internet and was free at the moment.

"It is a mobile-friendly website that you can access on any device connected to the Internet. All videos are of high-definition quality but you can choose to watch them in standard form. Streaming Journal will remain free during the six-month trial. After the trial, we might apply a small subscription fee or pay-as-you-go model," Kajangwe said.
