Briefly describe this entry’s communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 100 words):
Although Japan is a prolific producer of technology, due to the language barrier the majority of it never reaches a global audience, and it is only large companies which are able to gain recognition in the global media arena.
DigInfo News http://www.youtube.com/diginfonews was created to allow for smaller companies and research institutions to gain attention outside of Japan. We do this by creating news content in English and presenting it on our YouTube channel.
To date we have received over 46 million views and have created the opportunity for smaller companies and research institutions to present their ideas to the world.
