Shutterstock now offers 60,000+ high-quality music tracks to address increasing market demand
NEW YORK, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shutterstock, Inc. (NYSE: SSTK), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery, has launched a groundbreaking music licensing offering. Shutterstock Music features thousands of high-quality tracks through simple and affordable license options, making it easier for businesses, marketers, producers and filmmakers to add quality sounds to commercial videos.
"As technology makes it easier to stream rich media, our video footage licensing business has been growing rapidly," said Shutterstock's Founder and CEO Jon Oringer. "With that comes a growing need for sound, and we felt we could offer high-quality music with simpler pricing than what is currently available," he added. "Shutterstock makes it easier than ever for businesses to obtain the highest quality music for their productions."
Shutterstock partnered with Rumblefish, the world leader in music micro-licensing to offer more than 60,000 tracks for license at launch.
