Royalty-Free HD Releases 40 More Titles

Royalty Free HD has added 40 new HD titles--plus 140 fresh HD clips--for review and purchase on its Web site. The new titles increase its HD catalog to 62 elements of royalty-free HD motion content.

Ozone--a broadcast design firm that helped launch the Eyewire and Photodisc product line--and by Kuzu, an HD artist collective, produced the HD clips. Some new titles include: Cape Cod, Business Expressions, Gen X, Real Jobs, Speed of Life, Mass Transit, Fall Colors, Vintage Toys, Aqua Life, Body Projections, Dance, MicroMoney, and Meltdown.

Boston-based Royalty Free HD is also offering the stock HD on DVD for the first time. The company said with the move to HD, there are major opportunities to improve the way producers search and acquire footage online.

The Royalty Free HD Network allows producers to compare titles and clips online. (Most clips were shot on 35mm film and transferred to HD at Crawford Communications in Atlanta.) HD titles on DVD range between $500-$700, expanded versions on videotape about $900, and individual clips go for $200-$300.
