BBC Motion Gallery, which just last week announced that it had
migrated to QuickTime 7 and H.264 to encode all of its video content, has announced the release of “royalty-free collections.”
BBC Motion Gallery is the British Broadcasting Corp.’s collection of motion imagery, available for licensing and use worldwide by media professionals and others. The service offers more than 500 million feet of film and 600,000 hours of video across genres.
The royalty-free collections comprise more than 11,000 clips available in almost 200 categories. Those clips can be licensed and downloaded directly from the Web site on a per-clip basis. Alternately, BBC Motion Gallery can deliver the content on DVD as entire collections.
