Simplified Rights Managed Licensing for Editorial Use

According to the communications from Shutterstock, the new Editorial footage content will be available to license per clip, individually, and under three different, simplified Rights Managed licenses for editorial use only. 

While the full details on these licensing options are yet to be fully laid out to the public, we do know that this per-clip approach will allow clients to avoid per second or format pricing, making their workflows easier.

Editorial Motion Imagery for Enterprise Creatives

Editorial Video has been launched within the Shutterstock Premier service, so is for now it’s only accessible for enterprise customers under the Premier membership (albeit on a per-clip basis). 

If you are not a Premier customer, however, you have the option to submit a form requesting access to Editorial Video. And, of course, you can opt into Shutterstock Premier anytime. 

Editorial + Video: What People Want

According to Shutterstock, the new Editorial Video service is created to tap into the two media segments that keep growing substantially and exponentially for years: editorial content, and video content. 

They quoted the Cisco Annual Internet Report 2018-2023, which assures video will make up for 82% of consumers’ digital consumption by 2022 as well as their own experience of an impressive growing demand for editorial imagery from their customers, as the main reasons to come up with this new offer. 

So if you haven’t dubbed into editorial media yet, this seems like a good time to start!
