AP Media Port
AP Media Port is AP's file-based satellite distribution system for broadcast video, delivering Standard Definition (SD) and High Definition (HD) content as soon as it becomes available. AP Media Port enables your newsroom to receive each news story as a video file as soon as it is ready, rather than waiting for feeds via scheduled bulletins.

AP Media Port has a simple browser-based user interface that allows you to browse story thumbnails, preview videos and read accompanying scripts. You can choose between automatically downloading all stories or selecting individual stories for output to your video server, as well as downloading them to a remote location.

You can also play-out all files in broadcast-quality through the AP Media Port playout card's SDI interface, allowing Media Port to work with either file-based or video-based linear workflows.

With AP Media Port, each story is already saved as an individual file, so you don't have to manually cut the bulletin into individual stories. The video files are also supplied with metadata, so you can automatically match related scripts and videos.

For further information, please download the Media Port Overview (via the button below) or alternatively, contact your local sales representative via the country drop-down.
