Exclusive - While YouTube is reportedly paving the way for a major content push in collaboration with studios and networks, its not-so-small competitor Dailymotion isn’t sitting still either. The company has inked a deal with AnyClip to brings thousands of full-length feature films and 50,000 fully license movie clips to its popular video sharing platform.
AnyClip works with studios like Universal and Vivendi, with more deals coming soon, to gain access to full-length films rather than only promotional material, unlike competitor MovieClips. Focused on a B2B model, AnyClip works together with distribution partners to fill their websites with licensed clips.
AnyClip’s proprietary tagging tech extracts and indexes over 5,000 individual pieces of metadata from full-length feature films (including actors, objects, characters and places) and is even able to understand the mood and emotional tone of given scenes, the company says.
Enter Dailymotion, which welcomes some 114 million unique visitors and generates over 1.2 billion video views every month, according to comScore.
Starting today, Dailymotion users will gain access to AnyClip’s library of over 50,000 clips, from major movie studios such as Universal Pictures, Vivendi Entertainment and several indie distribution firms. To get a taste of what they have to offer, check out their list of most popular clips.
