Traditional press and news sites typically have to be tediously fed through content management systems that aren't really geared toward it. With the new multimedia newsroom AMID News, mediamid, partner of PressFile, now offers a solution that optimally supports the distribution of media information including all multimedia content such as press photos, videos, O-tones or graphics.

Merge all data

All elements belonging to a press text, such as text, images, documents or contact persons, are recorded and uploaded via a single window. AMID News automatically generates ZIP files, which are optionally provided for the direct download of the materials or for the collection in the download center. All media contents and documents are displayed as a preview below the respective press text and can thus also be selected and downloaded individually. In this way, it is possible to publish with AMID News also extensive press kits, which contain a variety of pictures and documents. The newsroom can be integrated into its own website as a self-sufficient portal and is based on the mediamid M@RS newsroom developed for the global media site of Daimler AG (

Cloud-based and easy to use

AMID News is cloud-based, easy to integrate into the existing website of companies or PR agencies and can be put into operation within a very short time. In contrast to the M@RS newsroom, which can also be integrated into complex corporate structures via very extensive functionalities and interfaces, AMID News is deliberately set up as an easy-to-use variant of this large solution. This allows all essential requirements for a central online newsroom to be covered by companies or PR agencies – without the need for much implementation or training. 

Full newsroom functionality

At the same time, AMID News also offers the functionalities of the "big brother" M@RS newsroom: All news appears chronologically sorted on the newsroom homepage, additional navigation by individual subject areas is also possible.  The six most recent messages are displayed as a slideshow with the image motif, headline/subhead and date, below which are the other messages as single tiles. According to the multimedia claim, the image motifs always appear prominent. In addition, the home page at the foot of each tile shows how many image motifs and documents belong to the respective news. All important social media links can be integrated, functions such as the subscription of the news site are also available. Like t

he PR software PressFile or the media library AMID PR, AMID News is also offered as a rental model in which all updates and upgrades are already available. inclu
