The New York Times News Service became Wieck’s first client in 1991, and since then, technology has disrupted and reshaped the newsroom.
But the one constant during this digital news revolution has been our partnership with The Times.
To be sure, much has changed. We began our relationship with NYT using modems and a platform similar to a Bulletin Board System (remember them?).
Today, we provide the content syndication infrastructure and API on which the NYT sells its content worldwide. We store millions of images, videos, text files, graphics, crossword puzzles, political cartoons and more on our asset management syndication system so that NYT's clients and subscribers can easily access and download the files they need.
Wieck also distributes data files for other companies within The NYT umbrella. The TimesDigest, for example, is distributed to commercial points and military bases on land and sea around the world – even to crewmembers aboard the International Space Station!
Even with all this change, one thing has remained constant: our commitment to helping The Times leverage new technologies and keep pace with the digital news revolution.
Need help keeping up with technology in your business? Call us.
I just wanted to express our profound appreciation for your swift help and technical mastery in being able to keep our portal and entire Wieck system running flawlessly despite the incredible volumes being experienced.Director of Photos and Graphics, The New York Times News Service
