NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dreamstime, the largest stock photography community in the world, today announced the launch of a new type of content available on its website: a high-quality stock footage and video service.
Geared mainly toward designers and creatives looking to create compelling video productions, marketing teams trying to meet their strategic goals, and videographers interested in selling their work, the new section was developed by the Dreamstime team in response to several factors: the advance of the video space; technology upgrades; contributors' interest; and, increasing customer demand.
"Everyone has a story to tell, and through our new service, we'd like to help bring these experiences to life through an affordable, high-quality, one-stop digital library," said Serban Enache, CEO and co-founder, Dreamstime. "We are excited about diving into the fast-growing world of video stock footage, especially because recent studies reveal that video is now proving to increase our customers website conversion rates by at least 30+ percent … it's a great strategy for any ecommerce site."
Enache said with the increasing demand for stock footage in the market today, marketers are constantly on the lookout for inexpensive, up-to-date video clips to use on their websites, blogs, social media sites and more. "At Dreamstime, we are determined to live up to that expectation, especially because video is becoming a critical ingredient for any marketing team's strategy."
Similar to Dreamstime's image submissions, Enache noted he and his team encourage users to upload stock concepts that are both "visually compelling and well executed," adding that footage featuring out-of-focus scenes, shaky camera movements or overexposed frames should be avoided.
Video clips will be available for between $10-$80, depending on their popularity. Dreamstime is the only agency selling exclusive rights (limited or unlimited) for its content, with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars up to $10,000.
