VatiVision, a new on-demand religious platform offering cultural, artistic and religious content inspired by the Christian message, is now a reality. It is something new in the field of religious communication, but not from a media point of view. The project, in fact, is inspired by the realities that dominate the market, from Netflix to Disney+, and is aimed at a potential audiences scattered throughout the world.
VatiVision is the result of the union of two realities: Officina della Comunicazione, an Italian film production company that collaborates with various Vatican agencies, and Vetrya, an Italian technology company that deals with the development of services, platforms and digital solutions. The main thematic areas of the project are Culture, Art and Faith.
Paolo Ruffini, Prefect of the Holy See’s Dicastery for Communication and one of the promoters of this new initiative, says: “I think that a multimedia religious distribution platform characterized by the verticality of its offerings can certainly respond to the widespread need to give Internet users the chance to access quality works that would otherwise be difficult to find, scattered and forgotten. I am happy for this reason that VatiVision will also distribute some products realized in collaboration with Vatican Media.”
The service is available worldwide in multi-screen mode, via browser or app on smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and set-top boxes.
