Executive Interviews is now Display Rights

Executive Interviews are now Display Rights

Display Rights started out as Executive Interviews nearly a quarter of a century ago as a current affairs and corporate production house, creating programs for broadcast and in-house corporate use. The relationships forged with corporations who saw the value in video laid the foundation for what Executive Interviews is today.

A full-service, global company

In 2003, Display Rights, formally known as Executive Interviews, recognised the rising demand for online video, specifically in the corporate sector, and relaunched itself as a company focused on the recording, repackaging, and rights distribution of television and radio news interviews. Since then, Display Rights has expanded to become a full-service, global company recording over 150,000 interviews and news clips annually. Display Rights is headquartered in the UK, with wholly-owned subsidiaries in the United States and Asia.

As the needs of our clients change, so do we! We have now fully re-branded to Display Rights to better reflect what we do, which now includes talks and presentations as well as executive interviews. We hope that our new brand can better serve how our content partners and clients want to work with us.

Working with the world’s leading content partners

We are proudly partnered with the world’s leading business news networks, providing their guests with timely, professionally-produced, and fully licensed video clips to post to their public websites or corporate Intranets, use at trade shows, investor conferences, corporate meetings, and more.

In addition, we now offer registered access to more than 16,000 thought leadership videos from leading educational networks which can be accessed free of charge by anyone, helping them learn, grow and thrive.

Trust

Trust is all important when it comes to our content partners. They need to know that DisplayRights offers a secure way to access their content and ensure we get the right amount of licensing fees for the content.

Reliability

We use cutting edge technology to ensure the right content in the right place at the right time. All of our content partners and clients know they will always receive a reliable service from DisplayRights.

Success

A successful piece of content starts a conversation as well as showing that the individual or business featured is a leading light in their own industry. Working with DisplayRights ensures this.

Global client base

Our client base of over 2,000 businesses worldwide ranges from multinational corporations and Fortune 500 companies, through giants in the technology and real estate sectors, to small boutique investment houses and regional financial firms. In fact, Display Rights currently boasts nine of the top twenty companies named to the 2015 Fortune 500 list.
