AP launches file-based video news delivery service

The Associated Press (AP) has launched a file-based video news delivery service providing broadcasters with a delivery platform that integrates with their digital newsroom production systems.

AP Media Port allows users to receive video news stories as separate digital files, which will be dispatched to the client as soon as each story is ready. This means clients will no longer need to record stories from AP’s Global Video Wire feed based on a 24-hour bulletin schedule.

The service has already been installed at 40 user locations and will eventually roll out to 800 sites. Until then, AP will continue to operate both delivery systems, allowing clients who have not yet switched over to the Media Port to use the traditional method of recording content from the Global Video Wire.
