ClipDealer notes that they have over 38,000 video clips in a variety of categories including food, leisure, travel, people, sports and technology. Videos are available in multiple formats including PAL and HD1080. Pricing varies based on the specific file and the selected format. In my testing, a 640×480 video was priced at ~$25 and the HD 1080 version priced at ~$100.
You can view samples and usage rights for each video. Storyboards are included as well so you can get an idea of the individual frames that make up the movie. Content creators can post their videos on ClipDealer and share in the revenue. The earnings are split 50/50 and ClipDealer takes an additional 2 euro payment processing fee.
The service is available in English and German although pricing is in Euros.
Online video host Brightcove is announcing a new partnership – its first large deal in Germany — with Gruner + Jahr AG & Co KG. Gruner + Jahr AG & Co KG is Europe’s largest magazine publisher and the company will use Brightcove’s "Internet TV" technology to serve ad-supported videos.
"Working with G+J, Europe’s largest magazine publisher, as our first customer in Germany is a significant milestone for us as we begin our expansion in continental Europe," said Jeremy Allaire, chairman and chief executive officer of Brightcove. Brightcove is already signing deals in the U.K. including their deal with Channel 4.
This continues a line of distribution deals stateside for Brightcove including most recently IAC last month. In my use of the Brightcove platform as a consumer, I find the experience to be very smooth.
And to all of you startups out there, remember that there is a market outside San Francisco.
