France 24, a 24-hour French cable news network, has selected Genesis Networks’ fiber infrastructure to provide a permanent video link between France 24’s U.S. news bureau at the New York Stock Exchange and the channel’s Paris headquarters.

Genesis Networks is also facilitating occasional-use transmissions of live news shots from Jerusalem and New York to France 24.

From the NYSE, the France 24 bureau is connected to Genesis Networks’ point of presence (POP) in New York for seamless delivery of news content to the France 24 headquarters. In addition to the video link, the agreement with Genesis Networks includes all required video and audio transmission hardware in New York and Paris, standards conversion from NTSC to PAL at the NYSE, and 24/7 monitoring and technical support via Genesis’ network operations center.

“As we continue to extend our news coverage to broader regions around the globe, it is essential that we partner with service providers that can guarantee the highest levels of quality at an affordable price,” said Frédéric Brochard, director of technology for France 24. “We chose Genesis Networks for its technology excellence and its track record of reliability.”
