Streamworks International, the specialist in live breaking news, has been named as the streaming collaborator for The Associated Press’ AP Video Hub 24/7 live news service. The AP Video Hub platform provides broadcast-quality world news, entertainment, SNTV (sport) and lifestyle video news for digital publishers. The new 24/7 live news stream gives customers access to breaking news events as they happen, anywhere in the world. Customers also have the ability to book and schedule live coverage of planned news events on an ad-hoc basis. Streamworks have been working with AP since September 2011 delivering AP Direct - AP’s raw, unedited news feed, via a live stream to online publishers. The new deal cements and extends the relationship to deliver this content via the AP Video Hub platform. Ray Mia, CEO, Streamworks, said: “The AP Video Hub has been linked to Streamworks proprietary software and global delivery network, from multiple ingest sites to ensure geo-redundancy, along with the ability to route signals into any OVP [open video player] or CDN [content delivery network].” Sue Brooks, AP director of video transformation, said: “Streamworks has proved to be as forward-thinking as we are, in their ambitions for the live news space. We trust them, which is no small compliment, and they deliver our content in as near realtime as possible.”www.ap.org
