Aerial footage provides amazing views of the world and tells a story in a unique way – and now customers of Shutterstock, a leading provider of stock images, footage, and music will have access to an impressive collection. A new distribution agreement with DroneBase, a worldwide provider of drone pilot services, will include 4K video from all over the world, including Australia, Austria, Bermuda, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Italy, Jamaica, Malta, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Tanzania, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Shutterstock customers will be able to license the footage for commercial use.
“As the drone industry evolves and enters new fields, anyone from any industry can access high-quality and 4K videos like never before,” said Dan Burton, CEO and Co-Founder of DroneBase. “This levels the playing field for smaller businesses and up-and-coming professionals. We can’t wait to see what our drone pilots shoot for Shutterstock customers.”
“From a soaring bird’s-eye view of the biggest cities in the world to incredible coastline vistas, all of this immersive content is now available to license for commercial use on Shutterstock,” says a DroneBase press release.
“DroneBase’s network of professional drone pilots will provide all kinds of high-quality aerial video content. With its global network of pilots in all 50 states and in over 70 countries, the DroneBase collection includes 4K video from all over the world…”
“The recent growth of aerial technology (particularly drones with 4K cameras) has transformed the production industry by offering crystal-clear, cinema-quality footage without the cost of a professional pilot and aircraft — and drones can even reach places helicopters and airplanes never could. Drone industry growth is expected to continue, and Shutterstock is committed to providing the best footage that the new technology can offer,” says DroneBase.
