Exclusive Taiwan Distribution of AFP Video Secured by Portico Media
Taipei, Taiwan - July 22, 2010 – Portico Media has signed an agreement to become the exclusive Taiwan distributor for video content from Agence France-Presse (AFP). AFP is one of the three largest international news agencies, and was the world’s first.
AFP now brings its unparalleled experience to video, and its 30 production units around the world produce vast amounts of footage for use by content producers and broadcasters.
The breadth and depth of content available from AFP presents a great opportunity for media professionals in Taiwan. Reporters and other content producers can search and watch footage via a convenient Web interface and then incorporate it into their work. AFP content is available in multiple formats.
“There are over 8 channels in Taiwan devoted entirely to news reporting but very little of the reporting includes current international news. Through this partnership with AFP, we hope we can find ways to keep the Taiwanese audience more informed with global news as Taiwan improves its internationalization process,” says Jay Lin, Managing Director of Portico Media.
Portico Media is excited to partner with such an internationally respected media organization as AFP and make their extensive video library available to content producers in Taiwan. Inquiries about specific uses and licenses of AFP video are welcome.
