Broadcast Media Service
Kyodo offers text, photo, audio and video services to Japan Broadcasting Corp. (NHK) and some 120 key commercial broadcasting stations across Japan.
Broadcasting media can receive the services on personal computers via either the satellite-based or Internet-linked 24-hour Kyodo News Net communications system. The main feature of the system is that any item can be retrieved on PC terminals and printed to be read by newscasters. Kyodo News Net covers all fields, including politics, city news, international developments and sports.
Kyodo also provides TV stations with video images, including a variety of interviews and events, and takes videos of various topics on request for local TV stations. Kyodo has installed digital video cameras at its domestic and overseas bureaus to strengthen this service.
