AP's video archive includes over 1.5 million global news and entertainment stories dating back to the beginning of the 20th Century. For the first time, in an industry first, curated archive content appears on breaking news topic pages allowing the development of richer online story telling.

All this content is available to download from AP Video Hub.

First from the field

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.

First to the desktop

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.
