Naxos Launches Video Library on 1 February 2010

January 15, 2010

New Streaming Video Service Launches With More Than 250 Full-Length Videos  of Concerts, Operas, Ballets and Documentaries



On 1 February 2010, Naxos—the world’s leading classical music label, and industry leader in streaming audio and music education—launches Naxos Video Library, a new and unique streaming subscription music service.

Naxos Video Library, (www.NaxosVideoLibrary.com), kicks off with more than 250 full-length videos of concerts, operas, ballets, and documentaries from prestigious performing arts labels such as Arthaus Musik, Dacapo, Dynamic, EuroArts, Ondine, Opus Arte, Medici Arts, Naxos, and TDK. Featuring performances from legendary artists including Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, Martha Argerich, Gerald Finley and many more, videos are available to stream at 700 kbps (standard quality) and 2 mbps (high quality) and the service is compatible with both PC and Mac computers. Within three months, NVL expects to make approximately 500 titles available to stream.

A separate, yet complementary service to the company’s existing suite of library music services, Naxos Video Library includes the following special features:

  • Ability to stream videos in standard and high resolutions
  • Create custom clips, which can be edited and added to individual playlists
  • Access to pre-defined video chapters, as well as individual arias and scene breaks
  • Subtitles in up to 5 languages
  • The ability to follow along with scrolling libretto text
  • Advanced search functionality, including the ability to search by category, role, composer, artist, production, personnel, work venue or festival. 

In 2004, Naxos launched Naxos Music Library, which has become the industry standard in streaming audio music education. With more than 562,000 tracks of music, powerful tools to stimulate music education and research, the daily addition of new releases, and remote access, Naxos Music Library continues to set the industry standard in streaming classical music education. In addition to the Naxos Music Library, Naxos also offers the Naxos Music Library Jazz database, Naxos Spoken Word Libraryan audiobook resource, and the NML Sheet Musica downloadable sheet music database. All of these services firmly support Naxos’ commitment to Music Education.
