AP launches video service

The Associated Press will offer international video news, called APTV, starting Nov. 1, providing feeds to TV news organizations around the world and competition with CNN for that market.

Testing of the service, approved at an AP board meeting last April, will begin this summer.

TV journalists are being hired to staff AP’s international bureaus, with the service to be headquartered in London. AP said APTV will complement its existing global newsgathering resources.

“We can do this cost-effectively, utilizing our existing bureau structures, and in a short time contributing positively to our income stream,” said AP chairman Frank A. Daniels.

Video cameras, editing and feed equipment will be available in 92 bureaus in 67 countries. AP also expects the video service to create a new source of still photos from video and material for AP’s broadcast wires.
