London, UK (September 28, 2007)--The BBC Motion Gallery has partnered with online music licensing marketplace Ricall in order to offer total audio-visual packages. BBC Motion Gallery offers media professionals in advertising, television and corporate video production access to one of the world's most comprehensive collections of motion imagery for licensing and royalty-free usage worldwide.
Through the partnership, BBC Motion Gallery users will have access to Ricall's online music library, which contains four million tracks, including every track to have ever charted in the UK top 40, the US Hot 100, as well as an ever-increasing number of tracks from unsigned and independent artists. BBC Motion Gallery is the footage licensing arm of the BBC's commercial arm, BBC Worldwide.
Similarly, Ricall's users in the broadcast and narrowcast media industry will be able to access the vast BBC Motion Gallery archive, which, in addition to the latest HD footage, also contains global footage from CBS News and Australia's and Japan's National broadcasters.
"We are delighted to have teamed up with Ricall as we are now able to offer a complete package to creatives and producers that want to find and license high quality video footage and music," said Paul Maidment, business development director at BBC Motion Gallery. "This is the ideal creative content partnership for us because Ricall's massive online library of music has both the historical breadth and depth of material to match that of BBC Motion Gallery."
"The creative process is one of the most important elements of any campaign or production and so anything that makes it easier for creatives and content producers to find and license both the right footage and the right music will be very welcome," said Richard Salsbury, VP of sales at Ricall.
