Asiavision members have adopted updated rules at the closed session of the 2023 News Group Meeting in Kuching, Malaysia.
Representatives from 20 Asiavision members approved the revised Asiavision Rules on 10 July, 2023.
The rules for the ABU’s video news exchange are designed for Asiavision coordinators and producers, and their managers.

The News Group Meeting also included the presentation of the new AVN platform – APV. Six members agreed to take part in the next stage of testing, from 1 August.
Other discussions at the meeting included increasing ready to broadcast content and enhancing protocols for live-crosses and ready to air-reporter packages.
