Hong Kong-based news company South China Morning Post, founded in 1903, is the latest outlet to bring its English-language content library to Veritone Licensing. The agreement between Veritone and South China Morning Post gives Veritone exclusive rights to license the news outlet’s archive and current video content to its clients in North America.

With all the turmoil in the region over the past year, South China Morning Post has been right in the middle of the action. It’s bringing more than 50,000 hours of exclusive video footage and infographics as well as more than 1.2 million photographs capturing vital, recent and historical events.

Here’s a little preview of what you can expect from South China Morning Post:

Available content from the South China Morning Post will continue to be updated with the latest news from the region. The content will also include historical footage of such events as the Hong Kong Handover, the Tiananmen Square Protests, the Sino-British Joint Declaration, President Nixon’s first visit to China and the end of the Qing Dynasty.
