Ai-Media takes ‘appropriate action’ over leaked footage of Seven newsreaders criticising Djokovic

Ai-Media technologies, the company that provides live and recorded captioning, transcription and translating services, has completed its investigation into the leak of Seven News hosts Mike Amor and Rebecca Maddern speaking about Novak Djokovic before a live broadcast.

In a statement to the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), Ai-Media said an employee working remotely “was responsible for the unauthorised distribution of content”.

Appropriate action has been taken with regard to the employee responsible, the statement said.

Ai-Media CEO Tony Abrahams said: “We are Australia’s leading provider of captioning services and we understand the importance of our work in making media accessible and inclusive to a wider audience, while safeguarding the confidential information of our customers.

“We have longstanding and strong relationships within the media industry in Australia, and value our relationship with the Seven Network with whom we have been working with for over five years. This is the first such incident in Ai-Media’s 19-year history, and enhanced controls have since been implemented to ensure it cannot be repeated.”
