JUKIN MEDIA AND RECORDSETTER STRIKE EXCLUSIVE LICENSING PACT
Jukin to license the RecordSetter library out to brands, publishers, and TV
Los Angeles (8/19/2015) – Jukin Media, the global leader in user-generated entertainment with more than one billion monthly views across digital platforms, has reached a deal to license RecordSetter’s library of compelling user-generated “world record” videos. Jukin will leverage its deep relationships in television, advertising, and digital media to maximize licensing opportunities for the RecordSetter catalogue.
Built on the idea that everyone can be world’s best at something, RecordSetter allows anyone, anywhere, to create their own world records and have them verified and recognized by RecordSetter’s in-house team. Their website, RecordSetter.com, is often referred to as a “Wikipedia of world records.”
RecordSetter has more than 40,000 world record videos in its library, which features impressive physical feats like “Longest No-Handed Bicycle Wheelie” and “Highest Flying Push-Up,” and more irreverent records such as “Most Consecutive Balloon Volleys by Two Dogs” and “Largest Toothpick Beard.” (Note: The world record for number of toothpicks in a beard is 2,222.)
“The RecordSetter library is truly one-of-a-kind,” said Andrew Dignan, Director of Licensing at Jukin Media. “This deal bolsters our offering to our clients and reinforces Jukin as the go-to resource for anyone looking to license user-generated videos across any category.”
Jukin Media’s licensing professionals will help licensees navigate the vast RecordSetter library and find the perfect
clip(s) to fit any project.
The unrivaled leader in licensing user-generated video content, Jukin Media has licensed viral videos for use by leading digital publishers, multi-national consumer brands, and major broadcast and cable TV networks in the US and throughout the world.
