Beauty Shot

AP offers a spectacular backdrop of the Eiffel Tower for broadcasters seeking a generic Paris beauty shot for their live transmissions.

Our location is ideal for those seeking to anchor their election coverage. It is also suitable for reporting on developments outside of operational hours at candidate headquarters.

"I would like to thank you all for providing us with your excellent service, including the stand-up live position and accreditations at the Macron venue yesterday. Also, your email alerts with editorial support were really helpful for us to make our broadcasting plans in advance.”

IP transmission solutions

We plan to offer platform positions with dedicated internet lines on a dry hire basis allowing clients to broadcast with their own IP transmission devices using our LAN lines.

Book the block of time you need to set up, transmit and de-rig.
