Audiovisual services and multimedia content 


The European Parliament supports media professionals by providing up-to-date multimedia content online and in-house facilities for reporting on Parliament's activities.

Multimedia content

The Multimedia Centre (MMC) of the European Parliament (EP) offers high-quality ready-to-use videos and photos, which are free to download. The full range of raw and edited material produced by the EP is stored permanently by the MMC, the EP’s audiovisual repository consisting of a mix of live and past events, news, illustrative infoclips and stockshots, and archive material. The Media Library colleagues can help you find video footage in the MMC or archive material.

In the streaming section of the MMC you can view the EP’s daily schedule of planned coverage (plenary and committee meetings) and download customised and trimmed clips from live broadcasts. Embed codes are available on request.

Broadcast-quality audiovisual content is also available via satellite on EbS and EbS+, the TV information service of the European Institutions.

For more information on our services and how to make the most of our online offer, please consult the Press Toolkit on the Audiovisual webpage.

Audiovisual facilities

The European Parliament welcomes journalists who want to use the broadcast and multimedia facilities in Strasbourg and Brussels.

The EP provides customisable broadcast studios, multimedia round-table sets, radio studios, broadcast or multimedia stand-up positions, and camera crews. These extensive and varied services, fully staffed and equipped, must be booked in advance. Working spaces for audiovisual media, such as unequipped stand-up positions at high-profile locations in the EP, can also be booked for selected timeslots or for the entire day.

All our facilities are available free of charge.

We do our utmost to make your remote broadcast or multimedia programme a reality and to adapt to your needs.

Visit the Audiovisual webpage to find out more about all the facilities we offer to the media and how best to use them.
