Watching CNN this morning, we have seen most of the coverage of the disaster coming from a Reuters feed. With the country's infrastructure devastated, having quality video image is of enormous value to broadcasters around the world.
Here is one of the first television packages on the disaster from Reuters which is on CNN.com. We have pasted the video on this page.
In 2008, I interviewed Victor Antoine, Reuters Television Editor for North America about news gathering in Iraq. He spoke about video filing using satellite phones and FTP. We expect that these techniques are being employed in Haiti.
Much more to come today about the Haiti crisis and video news gathering from news organizations and citizen journalists.
Update: Here, our interview with Reuters top global affairs and politics editor Sean Maguire on news gathering Port au Prince.
