National Geographic logoNational Geographic's Digital Motion unit, which is essentially the digital media distribution arm of National Geographic, has just given its HD materials a boost of more than 170 hours of content. The bump comes from a combination of acquisition and licensing deals. Amongst the HD footage are: sky footage from Bernd Pröschol; 70 hours of underwater footage from Pawel Achtel; 12 hours taken from "more than 10,0000 scenes around the world" from BlackLight Films; more than 60 hours of natural vistas and time-lapse images from Glusic; and 13 hours of nature and cultural film from J Michael Media. No word on when we can expect to see the new goodies showing up in National Geographic content, though.
