KPM Music and ITN Source have entered into an exclusive online partnership to provide one-stop footage and music services to commercial media clients. KPM Music is an EMI Music Publishing-owned digital supplier of production music, and ITN Source is a supplier of film footage.

The deal will enable users to license video and suitable music for a particular clip at the same time. It will provide users with seamless access to 175,000 music tracks to preview alongside stock footage clips archived on the ITN Source site. Every clip will offer users a choice of five different music compositions from KPM's PLAY Production music online service, with categories in the music database aligned with those in the stock footage database.

"ITN Source is a one-stop-shop for some of the most exciting archive footage in the world," ITN Source content director Asha Oberoi Content said in a statement. "By adding Play to our Web site, we are delivering more value to our customers who can now source the best professional footage and music in one place."

KPM represents artists who have composed music for feature films such as "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Troy," as well as major TV shows including "The Daily Show," "Gossip Girl" and "Dexter."

"Over the last 60 years, KPM Music has become the most indispensable source of high quality production music for the creative community across TV, movies, radio, advertising and new media, and we are delighted that our catalogue will now be available to users of ITN Source's remarkable archive of footage," EMI Publishing executive VP of media and business development Jonathan Channon said.
