IPSTVlogurlsmWhen IPS director general, Mario Lubetkin, announced at Rio+20 that IPS was branching out into WebTV to keep pace with the advances of digital technology, he emphasized that, “IPSTV will be much more than a visual cousin of the print product”.

During these past months, there has been intense work in Rome and around the world to build a team of professionals to manage the newly born IPSTV. Among first steps, IPSTV selected IPS journalists from Africa, Asia, Latin America, North America, the Middle East and Europe to come to Rome headquarters to undergo an intense week-long video reporting training.

Using the city’s cultural riches as a training ground, the group improved their video production skills and built relationships with their new colleagues.

Mario Lubetkin and Omar Peres, IPSTV president, welcomed the new team of editors and reporters and wished them a successful beginning.
