Agence France-Presse (AFP) is extending its partnership with SES, enabling its customers to continue leveraging the innovative AFPTV Live platform for real-time access to live news and events from around the world.
AFPTV Live, based on SES 360, enables users to access AFP’s live video news feeds and deliver content to their news studios via IP. Customers can also plan their news coverage with real-time information, collaborative agenda features and a chat tool connecting them to AFPTV’s Live editors, said the two companies.
AFPTV Live allows users to replay, refeed, download and clip live content from a single user interface.
“AFP is a visual-first news agency, with an unmatched network based in 260 locations around the world,” said Marie-Noëlle Vallès, video business development strategy director at AFP.
“Our ability to seamlessly deliver our 1200+ live video news feeds every month on a massive scale is crucial. As our AFPTV Live platform continues to impress our customers with its ease of use, we look forward to collaborating with SES to keep updating and improving it in the years ahead.”
