Adventurous videographers now have a new avenue to profit off their GoPro footage. The action-camera maker has launched a new content licensing portal that lets creative agencies and TV and film studios find and use quality GoPro videos, with prices starting at $1,000 per clip. GoPro Licensing will showcase new and popular content, and enable search and filtering using rich meta-data. It will also offer features like at-a-glance video previews, lightboxes for collecting and sharing clips and batch downloads to make it easy for creative teams to locate footage for their next project. According to AdWeek, the portal will feature over 600 videos from amateur and professional videographers who have signed licensing agreements with GoPro.
