Just over half the 1.6 million stock video clips available for screening through Footage.net can now be immediately downloaded. This growing collection of professionally shot screening clips offers researchers, producers, filmmakers and other creative professionals around the world a huge range of options from which to locate, access and share the perfect clip.
New York – October 30, 2012 – Footage.net now offers users the ability to download 857,672 screening clips from some of the world’s top stock footage companies. As Footage.net’s stock footage screening clip inventory has grown over the last few years, so has the total number of screening clips available for download, a feature which Footage.net users have been quick to utilize.
“Footage.net is a fantastic vehicle for putting our HD clips in front of broadcasters and content creators around the world,” said Paula Lumbard, president of FootageBank HD, a key Footage.net content partner. “It is one of our primary marketing tools and a part of our SEO strategy.”
Footage.net is dedicated to helping creative professionals discover and access the world’s best footage. By partnering with some of the world’s most prestigious footage companies, including Getty Images, FootageBank, Framepool, CNN ImageSource and CONUS Archive, Footage.net has grown rapidly over the last several years to become one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive online stock footage databases.
"We at CONUS are seeing a rise in demand for instant video as our clients, both domestic and international, are increasingly avoiding textual research altogether,” said Chris Bridson, Senior Account Executive at Conus Archive, another critical Footage.net content partner. “Footage.net allows us to stay current, convenient, and competitive by providing easy access to video 24/7 avoiding time, location and language barriers. Additionally, for clients that require the next level of customer service, the Zap Request is an excellent feature. It cuts down the time it takes researchers to find specific footage needs allowing for quick and efficient responses with customized research and screeners."
“Creative professionals come to Footage.net because they want access to the best content the stock footage industry has to offer,” said David Seevers, Footage.net Chief Marketing Officer. “Our goal is to make sure that researchers have both the best stock footage to choose from and the tools they need to take full advantage of our vast footage resource. Expanding the number of screening clips available for immediate download helps us reach both goals.”
