Enabling Reuters Video NewsML support

Learn how to enable Reuters NewsML support for video feeds.

Reuters Video NewsML support

Where: Channel | XML & Job Request Files | XML formats tab

Reuters video feeds typically transfer an accompanying NewsML file alongside the video file itself. The NewsML file contains xml-formatted metadata that Color Factory can convert to regular XMP to make XMP-compliant applications able to read and edit the information.

If you wish to use this functionality, your channel's input folder needs to receive both the video file and the accompanying NewsML file, as Color Factory will wait for both files to arrive in the input before processing them together.

The information in the NewsML file is then mapped as such:
