Depositphotos reaches 9 million high-quality images and invites contributors to submit videos
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, August 30, 2012 – Depositphotos, the fastest-growing microstock agency in the world, has reached the 9-million-image milestone. Furthermore, Depositphotos announces the launch of a high-quality video upload platform, and all contributors are welcome to upload their videos for sale.
For the past year, Depositphotos has continued to please its customers with updated website functionality, a radically improved “Smart Search,” a new collection of “Editorial use only” images and a brand-new lightbox operating system. Those improvements were designed to meet customers’ needs, as well as to make working with the constantly growing website content (which has more than doubled, from 4 to 9 million images in the last year) even easier.
Progress at Depositphotos knows no bounds; the company announced that new video upload functionality is now available for contributors on the website. The upload requirements for video files are: a resolution between 320х240 and 1920х1080 pixels (Full HD) a length between 3 and 60 seconds, and a maximum video size of 1000 Mb.
“With rapid high-technology development and increasing internet speed, media and advertising agencies nowadays require more videos. Nielsen and eMarketer researches into usage of commercial video confirms our own experience; there is strong interest in HD videos among microstock customers,” says Vadim Nekhai, Chief Marketing Officer of Depositphotos.
“The moment we started testing our new video upload platform, we received hundreds of request from contributors willing to sell their files through us. We are very pleased to hear positive feedback about our new service from videographers, agencies and other producers of video content. We provide a reliable and scalable platform that allows contributors to upload videos for sale quickly and easily,” – says Igor Kaliuzhnyi, Depositphotos’ Chief Operating Officer. “The file upload process is significantly easier now, thanks to the drag-and-drop feature present in the new file uploader. The user simply needs to select the needed files, along with appropriate model and property releases, drag them into the uploader interface and click ‘Submit.’”
In order to start working with Depositphotos, contributors should register for a seller’s account and pass a contributor’s examination. Approved uploaded videos will be available immediately for sale by credits under Standard and Extended Licenses. See the table below for Contributors’ Royalties for video sales.
