Washington Post reporters have been busy this week producing several live videos for its PostTV video channel about the paper’s sale to Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. The channel, which launched July 29 with a live program called “On Background,” relies on AP ENPS to keep production efficient.
“As we launched new original programming on PostTV, we were searching for an established production system that would tie it all together,” Andrew Pergam, senior video editor at The Washington Post, said in a statement. “ENPS allowed us to focus on what mattered: producing the bets political video journalism.”
For the live productions at PostTV, scripting, planning, contacts and contact call logging are essential elements. With AP ENPS, staff could work in the production system remotely while out of the office, using smartphones, tablets or laptops.
“As PostTV grows, the integration of AP ENPS with more systems will add an increasing amount of efficiency, allowing PostTV to be more nimble, enhancing the video information experience for viewers,” Lee Perryman, director of ENPS, said in a statement.
Here’s an archived video of PostTV with Katharine Weymouth, The Post’s publisher and CEO, following the paper’s sale this week.
