About UNifeed Video
UNifeed enables news providers to cover important global issues by offering timely broadcast-quality video from throughout the UN system.
Material is currently available in two formats: on-demand streaming Flash and broadcast-quality MPEG-2 PAL and NTSC for broadcast use. All material is also accompanied by shot lists and story synopses.
Stories come from the global network of UN specialized agencies, funds and programmes, Peacekeeping Operations and UN headquarters. New stories are posted on the UNifeed website as soon as they become available on a daily basis (excluding Saturdays and Sundays).
UNifeed was created by the UN’s Department of Public Information and UNICEF in response to the growing global demand for timely video material with an international focus. It is also supported by UNHCR, UNDP, the World Bank and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
Subject to the Terms of Usages of UNifeed, UNifeed materials are available free of charge for news purposes only. UNifeed materials may not be sold or redistributed to third parties without the prior written consent of the UN or the UN entity which is source of the UNifeed material. All users of UNifeed materials must provide due credit to the United Nations or any UN entity source(s) in their use and broadcast of UNifeed materials.
Broadcast-quality video for UNifeed stories is available online for two weeks. Should you wish to request archival material, please contact the agency source of the material. For UNTV or peacekeeping stories, please contact the UN Video Library. All Library polices, procedures, and fees will apply to the footage requested after the two-weeks period.
UNifeed also delivers stories through Associated Press Television News (APTN) to its clients around the world in a ten-minute package transmitted by satellite twice daily (Monday- Friday 2145-2155 / 0145-0155 GMT). For more information, contact APTN Broadcast Services.
