YouTube launched YouTube Broadcast Box, a mini studio that is equipped with professional camera and editing tools. The workshop is launched for the first time in Indonesia.

“This is the first project in Indonesia and in the world, it is designed for developing country where the number of YouTube users continue to grow, so that it can be used as education tool about how to upload video with good contents,” Veronica Utami, Head of Marketing Google Indonesia, said in Jakarta on Saturday.

“It is aimed to find YouTube star and to enrich local contents, as well as to introduce Indonesian talents to the world.”

YouTube Online Partnership & Development Manager, Niken Sasmaya, believes there are many youngsters with brilliant ideas but has yet to learn how to cast it into video for upload to YouTube.

“We have so far focused the events in Jakarta, while there are huge potential outside Jakarta where creative communities thrive, but they has yet to know where to start,” Niken said.

“YouTube Broadcast Box is aimed to facilitate them in making, editing, uploading, and maximizing YouTube features."

Broadcast Box will hit Jakarta on October 28 to November 7 and Bandung on November. It had also greeted Surabaya on October 22. A digital workshop will also be held in Medan on November 8 and Makassar on November 28.
