Verifying the Source, Date and Location of Eyewitness Material

At the Eurovision Social Newswire (ESN), every piece of content is verified and cleared for use before it is presented to Members of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). While the process can take from minutes to hours, depending on the complexity of the content, the steps involved in verifying a piece of eyewitness media centre around three main factors:

  • Source
  • Location
  • Date

In this webinar, Derek Bowler looks at the steps involved and how the Eurovision Social Newswire team verifies content for use by the EBU membership.
