The Associated Press has confirmed deal with French newspaper Le Figaro, making it the first French publisher to license AP Video Hub, its online video delivery platform.
“Le Figaro came to us with a demand for broadcast quality video news in a format that their infrastructure could accommodate,” said Sue Brooks, AP director of video transformation. “AP Video Hub enables them to access this as quickly and easily as large broadcasters do already. We are seeing unprecedented demand for our service that is truly revolutionising the capabilities of online video producers at newspapers, agencies and websites around the world. Features such as live streaming and ‘follow’ functionality make this an unbeatable and unique proposition.”
AP Video Hub’s delivery of raw broadcast-quality video news is ideally suited for online publishers that lack broadcast resources. The platform enables them create online content and offers readers an added dimension to their online news experience.
