Los Angeles (PRWEB) February 25, 2010
FootageBank HD, the sole footage company specializing in High Definition (HD) content, announced today that it has been selected as the exclusive footage house representing Playback Technologies' extensive stock footage video library which includes fully released, ready-made footage of news stories, cartoons, travel segments, financial news graphics, environmental news, and contemporary Los Angeles area day and night time lapse.
FootageBank HD and Playback Technologies are both southern California based companies founded by entrepreneurial visionaries that have built strong relationships and solid reputations in the TV and film production communities. Playback Technologies has been shooting, editing and creating affordable TV playback footage since 1996 and their library of standard definition and HD news stories and cable television re-creations is vast.
"Our production clients constantly ask if we can supply non-descript news, financial, weather or other generic playback material so we have built a unique resource of HD playback material that we felt should not be limited to our own client base," said Steve Irwin, founder of Playback Technologies. "We selected FootageBank HD because we wanted to work with a Los Angeles-based industry leader in the stock footage marketplace with an excellent reputation for quality footage and outstanding customer service. FootageBank HD was the only company that fit all of our requirements."
Playback Technologies' video library of local news coverage includes police and fire department responses, protest marches, airports, freeways, weather and local events. Computer screen playback categories include web pages and searches, traditional business and office, police, federal agencies, science, military, avionics, financial security and an array of medical displays including patient monitoring software used by nearly every television medical show for the past several years.
"Playback's footage is pre-made, pre-edited and, because all clips are talent released, they are risk free. These are all important considerations for our customers," said Paula Lumbard, founder and president, FootageBank HD. "With Playback's footage, our customers can save time and money, while still getting professional, top quality, up-to-date HD footage. This is a great addition to our offerings. "
