More than 350 Stock Footage Clips Offered with Resolutions Up to 4K
Myrtle Creek, Ore. -- Oct. 21, 2008 -- The industry's first and only royalty-free stock footage shot on the RED One digital camera is now available from Artbeats, with an initial release of more than 350 clips. Available for individual download, this new footage can be purchased with Artbeats' 'Buy 3, Get 4th Free' clip discount. For more information or to view the RED footage demo, please visit the Artbeats website at www.artbeats.com/redfootage.
"This is the first time that royalty-free footage with resolutions higher than High Definition (HD) (3K and 4K) is available on the market," said Phil Bates, president and founder of Artbeats. "By offering higher resolutions, plus the RED RAW files, our customers will now be able to pan, scan, rotate or crop the clip to create the desired look in HD - giving them increased flexibility and creative freedom when editing their HD projects."
Artbeats' RED footage features a multitude of subjects such as nature scenics, recreational lifestyles, industrial establishments, wild animals and so much more. Each clip is available in the original source size - either 2K, 3K or 4K resolution, depending on the clip, as well as NTSC, PAL and HD. The source RAW (.R3D) files will also be available for an additional fee, which gives users the ability to color correct the footage to match their own projects.
"This first launch is just a very small sampling of what's to come," continued Bates. "We have been actively shooting and are working on acquiring footage from outside sources that will encompass a wide range of subject matter. Watch for our RED library to grow very rapidly over the next several months."
