TVLINK Europe: a video on-line distribution platform for TV professionals


The TVLINK Europe is a video on-line distribution platform designed to meet the needs of audiovisual journalists by helping them to provide better coverage of European issues. The site enables journalists to illustrate European subjects through the distribution of video reports that can be obtained directly on-line. These video reports are also accompanied by a full description of the images used in each film, transcripts of the commentary and interviews.

 

The TVLink Europe site enables journalists to view (via video streaming) the various video features on offer. If the subject is of interest, TVLINK can facilitate an easy and efficient transfer of broadcast quality and webcast digital video files directly to newsrooms and journalists in the field. Journalists can also request a copy in professional format (Betacam SP or DVCam).

 

The videos are available to journalists and TV channels free of charge and copyrights.

 

The TVLINK web-site is managed by ICF Mostra, an agency based in Brussels and specialised in audio-visual production
