Artbeats, an industry leader in royalty-free stock footage for film, video and multimedia professionals, today announced it would release its new Ultra collections at the 2004 National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB).

Artbeats will debut the Ultra collections and more than 40 other new royalty-free stock footage collections, many of which are available in High Definition (HD), at NAB 2004, booth number SL4105.
All of Artbeats’ new Ultra collections were shot using a specially configured NAC digital high-speed camera that enabled Artbeats to capture footage at 1,000 and 2,000 frames per second. The new Ultra collections include:
“We are extremely grateful to NAC Image Technology and Clairmont Camera for the opportunity to shoot footage with this highly advanced camera,” said Phil Bates, president and founder of Artbeats. “The slow motion effects in all the new Ultra collections are incredibly beautiful and hypnotic to watch. We are particularly proud of these new collections, not only because the footage is exceptionally stunning, but also because Artbeats is the only royalty-free stock footage company offering this type of digitally captured high speed footage.”
