Associated Press, MSN launch AP Online Video Network

The Associated Press last week launched with MSN the AP Online Video Network in the United States. The breaking news video service is powered by MSN Video and leverages AP content.

The AP Online Video Network is tailored for Web sites and provides high-quality, in-depth reports from the world's largest newsgathering agency. Videos on the site after the network went live March 1 included stories of New Orleans sweeping up after its first post-Katrina Mardi Gras. The images were one of a series of breaking news videos that complemented newspaper and broadcast Web sites' stories. The network also carried a special section of video stories about the six-month anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and its continuing impact across the Gulf Coast region.

AP Online Video Network makes video available to a network of AP newspaper and broadcast member Web sites in the United States and an initial audience of 45 million visitors. Going forward, the service will offer some 40 video clips per day covering national, international, technology, business and entertainment news.

AP and MSN first announced this online video project in November 2005.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
