Video distribution

3GP files      Video compilations and translations

Access Agriculture works with a large network of extension and communication professionals and enterprises to encourage and promote the distribution of videos in local languages. We can help you develop a strategy to significantly enhance impact at farmers’ level. This can include preloading videos onto laptops, tablets and smartphones.

For more information please contact

Smart Projectors

The smart projector contains all of the Access Agriculture videos available to play off-line, off-grid and off mobile signal. It comes complete with a solar panel unit, 2 batteries and a sound system suitable for up to 150 people – all in one backpack or hard case.

The projector operates like an off-line version of the website with videos being chosen by category or language. This content is regularly updated.

3GP files for mobile use

In many countries farmers have been requesting small video files that can be played on basic mobile phone handsets.

These files are now available for download from each video page on this website.

Video compilations and translations

Below you will find a number of video compilations where videos from the website have been grouped by subject or interest.

If your organisation is interested in distributing a compilation by DVD, then please contact

A DVD can contain the videos listed in either English or French and can also have up to 7 other languages.

DVD labels are adjusted for each client, and will include your logo on the back cover.

You will find on the Impact studies page a number of examples of the effectiveness of video distribution.

Compilations can also be made available for distribution in other formats including USB sticks.
