Video Added To Adobe Stock Offering

Posted on 12/2/2015 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Adobe has announced that it has added over 1 million HD video files from the Fotolia collection to the Adobe Stock offering. These can be searched, downloaded and licensed directly on an a la carte basis within Adobe Premiere Pro CC and After Effects CC or from for use with any CC desktop app. The video clips are also available to enterprise customers on a subscription basis.

Fees for Adobe Stock HD clips are $79.99 or €59.99. Contributor royalties are calculated on the USD price. The standard royalty rate for video sales through this channel will be 35%, a little higher than that of photos. Contributors who reached Emerald or higher ranks before November 30th will receive 40% royalties. Royalty rates for sales via Fotolia’s website will remain unaffected.

Adobe expects to over 4K files in the future, but no date was announced.

Enterprise Sales

Adobe Stock enterprise agreements are designed to meet the image acquisition and usage rights requirements of larger organizations that deliver global brand campaigns. Images and videos can be used with no print run limitations. Assets belong to the enterprise organization, not the individual within the organization that acquires the image.

Adobe provides advanced administrative tools that enable user to share, manage, track and archive images centrally. This reduces redundancy and enables diverse teams to leverage existing content.

Access to assets in this manner are available to customers via Adobe’s Enterprise Term Licensing Agreement (ETLA). An ETLA is a customized and flexible term volume-licensing program designed for our larger customers. It allows Adobe to offer enterprise-wide agreements with lower management overhead and procurement costs than standard volume licensing programs. For more information check out this link.

For more about how Adobe Stock images can be easily integrated into a customer workflow see this link, or visit this link.

The company has also announced that there’s high demand for short –5 to 60 seconds– clips on lifestyle, sports, aerial, nature and general b-roll, and they’re looking for more content to cover these segments.
