Associated Press Secures Rights to U.K. Press Association Video Archive
LONDON: The Associated Press has signed a distribution
deal with the Press Association for its U.K. news video footage. As a result,
AP will have more U.K.-based video footage at its disposal, and Press
Association’s video will have wider distribution.
Starting immediately, AP’s archive customers can access more than18,000
archived U.K. video news, entertainment and sports stories, amounting to 35,000
minutes of footage. Press Association will add around 15 new stories each day.
The footage is described as “archive-friendly” compilations of the fully
shot-listed rushes from which the story was created.
Press Association says its footage will be available on AP’s archive website,
www.aparchive.com, on the day of filming
and can be easily accessed.
