Today we’re thrilled to announce a new, long-term partnership with global news agency AFP that brings their extensive catalogue to Wochit’s asset library.
Our multi-year agreement gives Wochit users the opportunity to utilize accurate, in-depth coverage of breaking news and events from AFP’s worldwide network of 2,300 journalists. This new content is available in real-time, further empowering publishers and media companies to rapidly respond to news and keep their audiences engaged.
“We welcome this new partnership with Wochit, which will empower media companies through the combination of AFP’s videos and the social video creation platform’s powerful tools,” said Stéphane Marcovitch, AFP Global Sales and Marketing Director, “With the wealth of high-quality video that can be easily packaged into engaging and compelling stories, we are helping fulfill the need to provide customized videos in real time.”
Our own Joachim Schmaltz, VP Global Content Partnerships of Wochit, spoke for all of us in saying, “We are delighted to be partnering with AFP and to offer our publisher partners around the world the exceptional breadth and depth of journalistic coverage they offer.”
Wochit customers produce more than 30,000 videos every month for distribution across owned and operated websites as well as via mobile apps and social networks. Through this new partnership with AFP, our users have real-time access to a massive new suite of assets for their coverage. We can’t wait to see all the new videos putting those assets to use!
