February 05, 2008
Las Vegas, NV - "In just the past few years, our members have seen WEVA transition from simply relaying industry news to becoming an industry newsmaker by enabling innovative business advantages for professional wedding and event videographers. ImageSpanís new LicenseStream Program for WEVA represents another exciting breakthrough for WEVA members worldwide," said Dan Argenas WEVA International's Director of Association Communications.

LicenseStream, a subscription-based content licensing service that costs non-WEVA members $99 annually, offers a revolutionary new way to license digital video and digital photo content in minutes anytime, anywhere, and drive revenues by speeding the pace of transactions. With a few mouse clicks, videographers and content creators may upload, register, describe and define rights to their work, and then license that work online without paperwork, pricing hassles or middlemen. LicenseStream also helps WEVA members collect royalties while cutting traditional licensing costs by up to 90 percent.
The new service will be enhanced through ImageSpan's creation of an Internet video portal, customized for WEVA members, that will provide each member with access to two gigabytes of storage where they can keep content, create license terms, review usage history, manage their licenses and track usage. The portal will provide automatic Flash previews of any piece of content it stores, enabling both videographers and their clients to quickly locate videos for licensing.
WEVA members' access to LicenseStream will provide benefits that would otherwise cost individual members hundreds if not thousands of dollars. For example, photographers have long relied on stock photo licensing to earn additional income. The LicenseStream service makes stock footage licensing for WEVA members a quick and easy process.
LicenseStream provides unlimited video and still photo licensing, including standard and customizable licenses. These features allow a videographer to choose predefined licenses or define extensive licensing terms before putting content online, including geographic parameters, timeframe, purpose and fees. LicenseStream can process all aspects of the license, including billing, collections and royalty payments.
