New York-based Pond5, the world’s leading marketplace for licensing royalty-free footage, has launched a new archive collection.

According to a release from the company, the collection is the largest of its kind, containing a comprehensive video library of historic moments from the past 100 years.

“Offering outstanding archival footage has been one of the most frequent requests from our customers, so we wanted to be sure we could deliver something truly special with this collection,” said Pond5 CEO Jason Teichman, in a statement.

Highlights from the collection include footage of World War II, the Space Race, important leaders, as well as authentic scenes from everyday life. The content has been converted and restored using film-conversion techniques, with the majority now available in high definition.

Pond5′s current clients include National Geographic, A&E, Propagate Content, Jigsaw Pictures and Netflix. The company uploads more than 10,000 clips every day, sourced from production companies, documentarians, filmmakers and archivists.
