Leverages AP's newsgathering infrastructure to get from camera to customer fast.
When it comes to breaking news, 150 years of experience tell us that speed is the
number one priority for newsrooms, but not at the expense of quality and accuracy.
AP's video newsgathering infrastructure is being entirely upgraded to meet the needs
of the customers in the digital age.
Speed from the field is guaranteed with the use of mobile satellite uplinks and
a network of video news bureaus around the world using the latest generation of
video editing, compression and transmission tools.
A simple and intuitive interface designed to make content access easy.
Having the best footage in the world is only good if you can find and download it
easily. This is why we've spent the last 18-months developing the AP Video Hub platform
in conjunction with some of the world's leading news sites to ensure we have made
it simple, intuitive and quick to use.
Typical customers are online publishers, news portals and small broadcasters who
don't have the technical infrastructure to handle satellite news feeds but want
upto the minute video news footage.
We believe the search, ‘follow' features, topic pages and Twitter alerts make this
the easiest way for news professionals to get video news delivered online.
