Artbeats has released its new collections of royalty-free stock footage in the UK. In total, the additions comprise 12 titles. The full list of collections is: Antarctic, Changing Seasons, Crystal Effects, Digital Biz, Earth Approaches, Earth Views, Ground Rush, Los Angeles Aerials, Objects – Time, Penguins, Recreation & Leisure and Sky Effects. The collections are licensed for unlimited use, including broadcast. They are sourced from film originals and scanned at resolutions of 720-x-576 or above – so can be used within PAL format productions without stretching, which is necessary with NTSC footage and leads to distortion. The collections are available in PAL, NTSC and HD formats. The clips are provided in QuickTime format on CD-ROM and the collections cost from £155 plus VAT. The collections have been made available through distributor Imaging Graphics.
