Continuing the UK broadcast television industry experiment with digital media, ITN Source (formerly ITN Archive), has launched a website where users can view and download iconic footage online.
The site also includes an innovative Concepts section aimed at the creative community, which lets them find and download the right footage for their project, the company said. Clips are made available in QuickTime format.
Several hundred hours of footage has been made available, with ten additional hours of clips set to be added each day. Material includes news content from ITN and Reuters.
The service includes Project Areas, where customers can set up Clip Bins for individual projects.
ITN Source represents the footage of ITN, Channel 4, Granada, British Pathé, Reuters, Fox News, Fox Movietone, and other specialist collections.
Material is being made available under the licence of the Creative Archive Licence group.
