Press Association VJs to supply Independent website with 100 voiced packages a week

Press Association video journalists are to supply over 100 voiced packages a week to The Independent’s website covering news, sport and entertainment.

Each package will be around 90 seconds in length and cover a single story with voice over where appropriate. A further 100 short 20 seconds clips on single stories will be provided for use alongside text and pictures.

Tony Watson, Press Association managing director said: “Following the recent launch of our video wire service, the Press Association is now providing video coverage of all the day’s major stories.”

Jimmy Leach, editorial director for digital at The Independent, added:”The Press Association’s expertise in providing quality news video quickly and professionally will give our video service some real immediacy and depth, while Octopus’s player is a simple, but rather elegant way for users to interact.”
