Shutterstock Video Variety: More Aerial Stock Footage in 4K

Shutterstock is a stock media agency known for the titanic size of their libraries, and their stock footage division is not the exception, currently hosting over 10 million videos. The company aims at covering every possible content need, and quantity and variety are a great way to do it. See more details in our Shutterstock Video review.

This agency identified a considerable demand for aerial footage, consistent with the advances in drone video technology. With UAVs capable of shooting in ultra high definition and image stabilization comparable to video shot using helicopters, it is now possible to get amazing aerial shots at a much lower cost. Even more, drones can get to places no other vehicle can, resulting in never-before-seen images. We told you about this in our article about how drones are changing the filmmaking industry, too.

By partnering with DroneBase in a new collection of aerial stock footage, Shutterstock is ensuring a large supply of the aerial videos that are in so high demand lately, in the also most wanted resolution of 4K.

This way they intend to keep their customers happy, bringing fresh stock footage to use in their projects.
