Multimedial presentation

It has never been easier for copy-tasters, programme directors and online news managers to select the best from the broad range of news material offered by dpa. We put together a multimedia package to go with all the major topics. By using “dpa-news” you can access all aspects of a running story from backgrounders to correspondent analysis, portraits, graphic material, audio and video content, internet links  and last but not least our planning tools.

Get your information in real-time

When something important happens you want to find out about it straightaway. Urgent stories are shown as red flashes on the “dpa news” page and if the story turns into a major topic it will be the lead story on the site.

What if you cannot find a topic on “dpa-news”? That’s not a problem. The site is updated continuously and previous top topics are easy to retrieve in the “dpa-news archive”. Just enter a search term in the enquiry box on the right hand side at the top of the page. Once a topic comes up click on it to access all the related material (texts, photographs, internet sites, graphics and audio contributions).

“dpa-news“ is available 24 hours a day.
Between 9.00 and 23.00 the service is maintained by our online editorial team. At night the integrated dpa German Service news ticker ensures you do not miss anything important.
