(video) The Associated Press in Pact with Bambuser for Live Video News

Posted: Updated:

LONDON (via SkypeVideo) Bambuser, the fast growing Swedish start-up that allows users to stream live video over mobile devices, has entered into an agreement with the Associated Press.  The pact provides the Bambuser platform to AP staffers and provides "citizen" journalists to provide unique live video to the wire service.

Bambuser has gotten widespread notoriety with live streaming of the strife in Syria, where journalists have not been permitted to cover.

Today, we spoke via Skype Video with the AP's Mark Davies, Deputy Director of International Video in the AP's London bureau.  He explains how "citizen journalists" will be verified and why the AP choose this technology.
